The opposition Green Party has questioned President Edgar Lungu’s continued silence on the closure of CBU and the saga at ZNBC.

Green Party President Peter Sinkamba said it is shocking that President Lungu has been mute on the two very important events that ordinarily necessitate intervention of the President.

Mr Sinkamba said what is even more distressing and flabbergasting is that President Lungu has chosen to deliver speeches at campaign political rallies in and attend ceremonies at the expense of addressing governance issues at the two important institutions. 

“As the Green Party, we do not think that PF winning of Bangweulu Constituency is more important than the crisis at CBU. We do not think that officiating and delivery of speech at the Show in Lusaka is more important than resolving the crisis at CBU. We do not think that delivery of speech at Dangote Cement is more important than resolving the crisis at ZNBC,” Mr Sinkamba said.

He has since urged President Lungu to place value on the education of the youths and act now to resolve the crisis.

“As a beneficiary of university education, he knows too well how his education has helped him ascend to the highest office of the land. He knows too well the comfort that goes with university education once completed and is employed.”

He said it is extreme selfishness on the part of President Lungu to continue ignoring the plight of students roaming the street for no fault of their own, but poor governance in the education sector.

  1. He wouldn’t know what to say people. The only thing he knows to say is “help us fight tribalism” and unfortunately the CBU issue is out of his depth. No clue or is it no vision.

    • I agree. It seems the president is avoiding anything that would get the progress measured. He can make an ambiguous statement to investors and skip the specifics, another statement on the constitution, then something on tribalism but in the end you don’t have anything to him down. CBU is a hot potato which can only be considered resolved if lecturers and students are back in the Lecture Theaters.

  2. WE ASK AGAIN WHERE IS THE PRESIDENT? LUNGU N3EDS TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE NOW. LUNGU IS HOPING TO STEER CLEAR OF THIS ISSUE BECAUSE IT WILL ACTUALLY REQUIRE LEADERSHIP TO RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM. KAINGU LET THINGS GET TO THE POINT WHERE GOVERNMENT HAS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN SAVING THE UNIVERSITY OR SAVING THE JOBS OF THE “FANTASTIC FOUR”.. LUNGU NEEDS TO MAKE THE DECISION TO EITHER SIDE WITH KAINGU OR THE STUDENTS AND LECTURERS. WE ASK AGAIN WHERE IS THE PRESIDENT?

  3. … CBU is no issue and is as useless as its CBU degrees. Let those student cadres feel the pain of supporting useless politicians.

  4. Ya Sinkala next time will be asking the President to sort out his bedroom problems.

    Dear GP President. That is why you have the minister of Education and all the chaps at the ministry! Geeeez!!!!

    • Checkov – the GP President an any like him are too dull to understand that. Edgar is doing the best to be a leader and let those entrusted with certain responsibilities do their jobs independently.

  5. Edgar is a handpicked utterly lazy bum..he wouldn’t know where to start…he was chosen as tool for corruption hence no vision!!
