    • Why disturb all those workers just to welcome him for lunch? Or they went to see ridiculous he looks in new hat? is why Chikwanda is complaining of working culture, it starts with Edgar.

    • So traditional leaders are supposed to foster national unity while Lungu and his coterie of Eurobond thieves are busy tearing the country apart!

  1. Straight from a two day holiday in Uganda where he got a hat from old man M7 for his colllection and he rushes to traditional ceremonial, one would be excused for thinking there are no pressing issues in this lazy man’s in-tray…this is now beyond a joke.

  2. The president is working disgrantled fellors are still hurt. You will die out of heart attack just accept that pf is in power en the elections are over. Tough lack

  3. Prefers Mutomboko & N’cwala to Lwindi, Kuomboka & Likumbi Lyamize. Should traditional ceremonies also be politicised .i.e. selected based on one’s political base is? Isn’t he President for all?

    • Tribal f00l, as usual. These are ceremonies for paramount chiefs. Lwiindi is held in different parts of southern. How many can he attend. Kuomboka presidents attend. So what are u whining about,, always trying to find new faults

  4. In a hot country, people should wear a hat to protect from sun strokes and wear sun screen to protect from skin cancer.

    It’s all the others not wearing hats in the pictures that are displaying lack of knowledge.

    These ceremonies are long and in blazing sun.

  5. Bwana Lungu seems to be eager to join the club of hat wearing dictators Museveni and South Sudan president Salva Kiir.

    • Most of these dictators use the hats to bridge the vacuum between their ears. Another hat-wearing ex-president, Badluck Jonathan, will soon be exposed for overseeing the plunder and collapse of Nigeria. A hat for a modern leader shows a very egoistic character. It’s uncool! Hats are to Lungu what shoes were to Emelda Marcos.

  6. This is our beloved president!!well done [email protected] tell your sponsor of “chuundu chaitwa” HH to be attending your Lwindi!!CAN U COMPARE MUTOMBOKO WITH LWINDI?TALK OF KUOMBOKA,NC’ALA YES AND NOT LWINDI WHICH IS ONLY KNOWN BY BA KACHEMA!!it was nice seeing a lot of senior PF members including several ministers attending mutomboko today.indeed Luapula is PF’s bedroom hence the care by our PF leaders for this province!!

    • Eddy, see how dangerous a little education cab be? Your mind is a small, dank, dark and desperately sad place. You are totally destitute of any human virtue and common sense. You are case study in tribalistic idiocy.

    • @Eddy
      You are too dull! When did my moniker @Neutral change to @Natural? Are these two names not even totally different in there exact meanings as mere words (Neutral & Natural?
      I can spear you K500 for specs if you have double vision, just ask!

  7. This is a lazy man who only has time to travel, how can he solve country issues if he is all over just concerned about being known to be re elected 2016. Lazy bum, no vision, God bless Zambia.

    • I am proud of our President His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu for shaming our critics who anticipated death and all sorts of un-Christian jealousies and idiocies they can not even spell

  8. @ Ted! You can have your wondering president who has no vision nor leadership skills. In fact his new name is: The Traveling President.

  9. These bloggers paid by a certain party never cease to amaze me! Lungu’s hat should become an issue because he has just come back from Uganda? Even their master would call it trivia.

    Is it the first time that the President has worn a hat? No! In case you have tiny memories whose brain can fit in the head of a cockroach, let me tell you that the President loves his hats. Be reminded that recently one of his hats was auctioned at a fundraising function at a hotel in Solwezi.

    Now please go to to church for once, you will still be paid by your master.

  10. I am equally impressed with EL…..He is more energetic and vibrant than ever before.The Presido has put Zambia on the map and his critics are now panicking accusing him of travelling.You want him just to be sitting in state house every day doing what ?

    Mr Presido we have our local wise saying that concentrate on drawing water in the river or stream…do not waste time listening to the noise by the frogs which may distract your attention.

  11. The guest of honour for CUUNDU CHAITWA/LWINDI next year should be the new veep for UPND……It could be exciting indeed to listen to his speech.

  12. When Sata was president, the same chaps used to say he fears traveling to other countries cos he is uncivilized and he has no visitors. When it’s the other way round, it’s still a problem to the same people. Most of these same armchair chaps who are always commenting on every issue do not even pay any tax but they like saying he is using our money. Problem with upnd supporters is that only HH will make all problems imaginable to go away in a flash as if he is a magician. No wonder people don’t vote for him cos he and his people overrates themselves so much. Viva GBM for upnd president…

  13. Hope Museveni did not donate that hat to Chagwa! Strange, African leaders think a walking stick or a big hat enhances their dignity!

  14. “And President Lungu has warned that non performing contractors risk having their contracts terminated.”

    WE HAVE HEAD OF THESE WARNINGS MILLION TIMES. TOO MUCH OF SOMETHING TURNS INTO INACTION. THERE HAS BEEN SO MANY OFFENDER IN THAT CONTRACTING BUSINESS, IT’S TIME TO START PROSECUTING THEM.

  15. ELIAS Chipimo says President Edgar Lungu will leave a bad mark when he leaves office.
    And Chipimo says President Lungu’s leadership is uninspiring, visionless and undisciplined.
    The National Restoration Party leader said there was no guarantee that President Lungu would be re-elected in next year’s general elections.
    “If we get to a situation where the PF next year is not returned to power and this is very possible because politics being politics, you cannot have any guarantee. Politics is one of those games where anything is possible. And if it so happens that come September 2016, elections have taken place and the PF loses power, President Lungu will leave a mark on the country, but it will not be a good mark,” Chipimo said.

  16. President Lungu has not been brave enough to tackle head-on the challenges within his own party and the challenges within the politics of this country. That bravery is possessed by a few men. If you look back at our history, (Dr Kenneth) Kaunda was a brave man, (Levy) Mwanawasa was a brave man, (Frederick) Chiluba was a brave man.”
    Chipimo said the three former presidents were brave men because they were ready to go against populist sentiment in order to address issues that were in the long-term interest of the country.
    “In the case of (Dr) Kaunda, he defied all odds to fight for independence to ensure that there was a sense of equality and if you look at the development that took place in the early years after independence, it reflected leadership that was courageous because he was…

  17. recognised widely as an international statesman,” he said.
    Chipimo said Dr Kaunda supported and inspired liberation movements within Africa and beyond the continent.
    “This required a lot courage and bravery. If we come to Chiluba, he wanted to change the structure of this economy and even when it was unpopular to talk about structural adjustments, he pursued it, not worrying about whether he will be re-elected but worrying about getting the country right. And he built a spirit of entrepreneurialism, which we haven’t seen before in this country,” he said.
    Chipimo said Mwanawasa battled against corruption and that he tried to live up to the personal commitment of addressing it within his own ranks.
    “He didn’t succeed fully but he took on that fight, perhaps even at the cost of his life…

  18. If you remember, he resigned and he is the first [Republican] vice-president to resign on the ground that action was not being taken in respect of corruption as he perceived it. So these were very brave men,” he said.
    Chipimo said unlike the three former presidents, President Lungu’s leadership was uninspiring, visionless and undisciplined.
    “When you come to Mr Lungu, we are seeing a situation that we thought we have overcome. President Lungu’s leadership is uninspiring. Right now, our country needs inspiration. By its own admission, it is visionless, by its own actions, it is undisciplined. These are facts that speak for themselves. Right now, we need inspiration, vision, and discipline. We need policy consistency. We are not seeing that,” he said. “We have just borrowed more money on…

  19. international markets; we are now going back to the historical debt levels that led us to be described as Highly Indebted Poor Country. We will be close to US$8 billion in debt; who is going to pay back that money? That is the first thing. Secondly, if you look at the amount of money that has been spent on by-elections, it is the biggest in our history. Over K230 million on by-elections – and we are not even including the [January] presidential election – since 2011. That is over K50 million.”
    Chipimo wondered how many clinics, hospitals and schools could have been built using the money that had been spent on the by-elections.
    “How much investment could that have made for the power sector and reducing the load-shedding? These are the things that will be remembered by people in 2016,”…
