MOOMBA United Party for National Development (UPND) Member of Parliament (MP) Highvie Hamududu has advised President Edgar Lungu to live up to the expectation of being the best president Zambia has ever had because he is young with fresh ideas.
Mr Hamududu said President Lungu is different from other presidents that Zambia has had hence he should not be trapped into making decisions that made other presidents unpopular.
“President Lungu is a young president who can make a difference in Zambia but he should be careful with people who are surrounding him if he has to succeed as the best president,” Hamududu said.
The lawmaker added that the people surrounding the president just want to eat and if he loses elections next year, they will run away from him.
Mr Hamududu said in an interview that he doesn’t mind working with president Lungu as long as he approaches his party president Hakainde Hichilema that he wants to work with the UPND MPs rather than poaching them.
“I can work with Mr Lungu as long as he approaches my president that he wants some of us to work with him and help him succeed and move the country forward,” he said.
“We want Lungu to succeed and move this country forward because he is different from these other leaders that we’ve had but it is not right for him to be advised by people who just want to eat and move away, he should be careful and continue being humble as we knew him before he became president.”
