PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu with former President of Zambia,Rupiah Banda on arrival at Solwezi Airport today
PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu with former President of Zambia,Rupiah Banda on arrival at Solwezi Airport

PRESIDENT Lungu says his involvement in the Angolan oil deal was meant to encourage private sector participation, unlike what has been suggested by The Post Newspapers.

The President, who was speaking on arrival in Solwezi to scores of people who welcomed him, said accusations of corruption in the Angola oil deal were unfair, especially that he has not interfered with the Anti-Corruption Commission since he was voted into office.

The President also lashed out at Post Newspapers Editor-in-Chief Fred M’membe who he said was a bitter man because he failed to help his friend Rainbow Party leader Wynter Kabimba to ascend to power after the death of President Michael Sata.

The President advised Mr M’membe to pay his workers on time adding that the Post Newspaper owner has begun a battle with him through his Newspaper by publishing false information.

The Head of State said Mr M’membe is lying to the Zambian people that he helped the Patriotic Front (PF) to form government when he has been against the ruling party for a long time as evidenced by his evil schemes to hijack the party.

Mr Lungu said it is the poor people of Zambia who sacrificed for the party to usher the PF into government and this is the reason late President Sata did not allow PF to be hijacked by people with money to avoid being enslaved.

“Mr M’membe is a bitter man because he failed to help his friend Wynter Kabimba to ascend to power and God is above all this manipulation and he allowed me to become President,” Mr Lungu said.

President Lungu, however, said he has no personal grudge against Mr M’membe and his employees but advised the newspaper to be factual in its reporting as it exercises its right to freedom of speech.

He has since assured Mr M’membe that government wants to see the newspaper continue with its production but advised him to pay his workers on time and not waste resources on funding political activities of the Rainbow party.

Mr Lungu said he has been quiet for a long time but he has decided to respond to Mr M’membe to clear the air.

He has since advised Mr M’membe to take him on if he thinks he is engaging in criminal activities.

“So because I have not allowed them latitude of manipulating the ACC, the police and other government agencies, I have become their enemy,” he said.

And Mr Lungu has advised Zambians not to give power to the opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and his vice president Geoffrey Mwamba because the two want to use the Zambians to amass wealth.

President Lungu, however, said people have a democratic right to elect a leader of their choice but that Zambians have slowly begun to appreciate him since he became President.

He also assured Zambians that he will work hard to unite the country through the One Zambia One Nation motto. President Lungu also said he still loves the people of North-Western Province even if they do not vote for the PF candidate Martin Mbaya in the forthcoming Solwezi West Parliamentary by election. He also advised people not to listen to false stories from his critics that the current power deficit the country is facing due to low water levels at Kariba North bank has been caused by the PF because no one can fight with nature.

On the mining sector, President Lungu said the mines are facing challenges because of the low copper prices prevailing on the market.

President Lungu urged Zambians to work together and find solutions to the problems the country is facing.

While at the airport, President Lungu was joined by former President Rupiah Banda, who thanked the people of North-Western Province for the support rendered to President Lungu during the January 2015 presidential elections.

Mr Banda also advised Zambians to give President Lungu the respect he deserves saying no country can live in peace if people continue to attack a democratically elected President.

President Lungu said he would not abandon the former head of State despite accusations from the Post newspaper that Mr Banda was corrupt when he has been cleared by the courts of law.

Earlier, North-Western Province PF chairman Emmanuel Chihili said it is no longer a secret that the political landscape in the province is changing towards the ruling party since President Lungu assumed office.

    • We have said it many times that hatred and bitterness are not only cancerous to one’s dreams and life, but they are poisonous chalice that can take the hater quicker than wished. They eat the hater than the hated fast and lethally. The hater is preoccupied thinking of how to destroy their perceived enemies and talking about the hated who is too busy with what he takes passion in and his business without a thought of the hater. In our Zambian case, a thousand waked souls of hatred and bitterness will fall in vanity over their enemy. ECL has God’s mandate over the Zambian people and haters will fall flat in droves.

    • Lungu has no spine.

      I think he has no control of the PF either. Somewhat I think his vice president and Banda control him a lot more than we care to think.

      Good man but wrong man for the job.

      Thanks

      In a matter of one speech, Lungu both denies and admits interfering with the Anti Corruption Commision. Lies are difficult to keep up with even by those telling them!

    • Why talk about Mmembe? Lobito Oil gate was unearthed just a week ago.
      What we want to hear, bbwana, is what plans you have of fixing our collapsing economy.
      Whether Mmembe is full of hatred towards you is irrelevant to us.
      2016 budget will be released next month. Your utterances should be hinting at what we should expect in the election year 2016.

  1. Is this really all this man knows how to do?

    Zambia is facing huge challenges and all he can talk about is his petty squabbles with other people?

    He sounds like a spoilt child, definitely not like a President of a Nation. Grow up and show some maturity!

    This man has proved he is totally incapable of running the country and is a complete disaster. He should immediately admit he has failed and resign so that Zambia can have a leader that can do the job.

    • What matters now bwana president is to address the issue of the collapsing Economy. Zambians are no longer interested in personal battles. We need a better life as Zambians. If Lungu will spend more time on petty squabbles then he will cry like RB in 2011.We need a serious and critical thinker to solve this paradox of leaving in a poor country yet endowed with rich human and material resources. Zambians lets stop being petty for once and chose someone who will uplift our economy, that is cardinal.

      That is precisely why we need leaders. They are supposed to shine brighter in times of trouble .. David and Goliath illustration …

      SO the it is very clear that baba Lungu is really not leadership quality. May be he needs more time ..unfortunately time is a luxury Zambia cannot afford .

  5. Edgar Lungu is extreamely worried of defeat in 2016 hence to desparately get Rupiah Banda from the achives to help him. Yesterday, i was in Solwezi and the welcome for Edgar Lungu was hostile. People from all walks of life were shouting “we want chage” just like the soccer fans on the Copperbelt who are demanding for the removal or substitute of Edgar Lungu.

  6. Edgar Lungu should just start preparing to leave the presidency. He is finding it difficult to campaign freely in his stronghold like Northern Province; what more wen it comes to other provinces where he is not popular. Things will be worse for Lungu. In Lubansenshi, Mumbi Phiri has so far spent K700 000 dishing out to electorates in a bid to scope the by election at all cost, but still things are not okey.

  7. Edgar Lungu believes that Rupiah Banda is the one who helped him to win the presidency on 20 January 2015. And so sensing defeat in Solwezi West, he has decided to bring back the old man from the farm with a hope of winning him Solwezi Seat.
    He is 100% desparate and is ready to kill just to win the seat.

  8. RB has become Lungu’s forerunner. He is now John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus (Lungu) who will be rejected in Jerusalem (Solwezi). Anyway, John the Baptist was a holy envoy for another holy man Jesus not this RB fore running a useless leader. Every time I hear the name RB I think of corruption, lack of transparency and lack of accountability which made corruption a widespread phenomenon, a normative behaviour, and did nothing to curb it.

    • What is democracy? Is there anything wrong with GBM joining UPND? is there anything wrong in Winter Kabimba forming his own party? Is there anything wrong in a former head of state supporting his preferred candidate? Does a former head of state have no democratic rights? Think about if you can.

  9. Senior Citizen you are 100% correct even their leader HH is preoccupied with hatred, how can God allow them to rule when they have so much hatred. Even on this blog they are the first ones to insult our God given President. But we forgive them because we know it’s the devil driving them

      Don’t you know he was ELECTED by human voters?

      If God had anything to do with it, maybe he allowed this pathetic excuse into State House as punishment on the people of Zambia for their stupidity and greediness!

      Senior Citizen says “ECL has God’s mandate” !!!! What utter rubbish! He has no such thing. Obviously this F00L has no idea about what he is talking about.

      You must be a very immature and emotional manipulated mind to believe that loss of power in democracy means being hated by the people. That is curved cow dung theory bought in kraals. What do you say of the likes of HH who has been rejected 4 times heading for his 5th at national level other than in his tribe? What do you say of US’s President Jimmy Carter, President George Walker Bush, or indeed our very own President Kaunda all who lost power in democratic elections?

  12. Handi & MY BROTHER,
    What you anticipate could be true or not, but is that what the sponsors (PF carders) thinking? Remember you are both talking as foreigners including your sister Mushota who even contradicts herself…first she calls ECL Goodman and says wrong man. What does that mean to the Voter? The voter wants to vote for a Good man…AND then she supports Mmembe> Is Mmembe contesting the 2016 elections? RB is a politician who has disappointed hh before and will continue to disappoint hh nafuti nafuti. So what are you going to do about it? Are you to complain, cry and what else? You lack style of campaigning and that’s why hh, Kabimba, Nawakwi, Mulongoti and other opposition parties shall lose and lose badly. You are for the theories and probability only not for real..

  13. The EL/RB team is the most unfortunate combination that has ever arisen in our country. They are a curse to Zambia and because of them the country is headed for doom unless they leave the reigns of power. Zambian voters let us not listen to their lies but we must unite and exit them faster than they came. 2016 HH and UPND chabe. PF is dead, Just see how Chama is killing it and no Yaluma calls them stupid, and he furthers says pf will be voted out. EL ascended to power through the window of trickery, bulling, and deception. God has rejected this man and he will perish with pf in 2016 because true Zambians have woken up accross limitations of tribe, region and partyism, and are resolved to salvage the remains of our country..

  14. this guy called Lungu, is a faceless lier he has all along been denying he had anything to do with the Angolan oil deal, now he says he was giving support. Why even allow use of the presidental jet to deliver a letter instead of using the embassy in angolan. Wat was he hiding. Same method RB used.
    Lungu was minister of justice if he knew RB wad innocent why did he table the removal of his immunity, shows he is a coward or a lier who can not be trusted. Hate is within him dats why miles is a deputy minister and Northern province police chief has been demoted.
    People of nort west dont forget davis chama and his party called you dogs coz you didn’t vote for lungu. Zambians you forget easily, today they say they love you. Shame.

  17. Read Wikileaks files of 2009 on Zambia, an audit report by our own Auditor General Anne Chifungula. Former and late president Levy Mwanaeasa in cohort with Mutembo Nchito, Fred Mmembe, Darlington Mwape and Others stole USD836billion from the Zambian government through a botch oil transaction with a company called TST. The then permanent secretary in the Ministry of Energy Josephine Mapoma facilitated “the report reads”.
    HH’s company during the privatisation of RAMCOZ transaction was earning USD12m per month for a year and half when families in Luanshya where bedestroyed and starving to death.

How does a head of state publicly pick a fight with someone who has a barrelfull of ink…you are simply playing into Me’embe’s hands.

      PF under Sata and now under Lungu have spent millions of Zambian Taxpayers US Dollars trying to muzzle and block the ZWD and Zambia Reports because they are critical of this Government. And they expose the LIES and CORRUPTION happening in the Country!

But what i witnessed in solwezi yesterday was only closer to Kaunda’s final days when he was boed,pelted and jeered everywhere he went. The system should be sincere and avoid exposing the president to embarassment. The writing is clear on the wall. yes they may win solwezi west for now the desperation can be seen. There is money, bicycles,watches, cooking oil, rice at all polling stations being distributed by PF.

Have some respect at least. as much as we know that you were wounded in the last election should not warrant this kind of bitterness from you. its not ECL who voted himself into power that you should hate him so much, if you are bitter vent it to Zambians who voted for him. When you insult him you are as well insulting Zambians who voted for him. and you think they will vote for your candidate, NO. you are doing yourself a disservice and you don’t know politics, you are naive ” kabudo politicians” All the people that voted for ECL will not vote for you for insulting their intelligence.

Lungu and RB are very aware of Mmembe and they are scared of the amount of damage he is likely to cause to them given the tools. If Mmembe was not giving them sleepless nights he would not even be spending time talking about him.

Most of the PF cadres are so dull they can’t even tell you the reason why they voted for ECL if bothered to ask them! They will say he is not tonga!

M’membe will always be bitter as long as he is not having a grip to power!! He is the most stupid person in Zambia. Go on President Lungu we have given you a mandate to rule until next year. Mmembe is one man who accuse others to be corrupt when he himself if the most corrupt and tyranny man. We haven’t forgotten about the Trafigura deal which they did with their partner Kabimba Homosexual Party; his tracks were transferring coming and leaving the country without paying tax!! The DBZ job and other under deals this man has done. He has accused other people being corrupt, tribalists, bantustan,…

  40. The only person who will champion Lungu’s cause is SG Chama and his press SPOKESMAN Amos. This is a bit like the championing of Chiluba’s third term by Sata which ended up becoming a one man crusade of a fruitless cause. The sooner Lungu realises he is on his own the better. What makes him even more valnerable is that he is currently even dining with his enemies and he does not realise. He might have been in the School of Sata but it’s fair to say that he might have come out with nothing in terms of know how. I put the chap. The writing is on the wall but somehow he can’t see it. Bashi Nono might be down but not out, Emmanuel Mwamba is watching the proceedings from not to far from Zambia and the guys in government are just staying in touch and operating within. Good luck Lungu.

    Membe has been around since 1990 and lungu is just around now.

    I think lungu should see clearly what mmembe is saying

  44. This President is extremely dull, the country is in disarray and all he cares to talk about is Mmembe. Who cares about his differences with Mmembe? Sir, you Have No Sense. Just go back to Chawama.

  46. Fred Mmembe should just pay back the Zambian Airways debt of US$30 million (Plus Interest) which he owes public institutions( Napsa, ZRA, NAC, DBZ). Mwanawasa and Sata were manipulated by Fred. Edger Lungu is a man of the people who wont allow manipulation of any kind. The late George Kunda (MISRIP) warned us about the manipulative tactics of the Fred and his cohorts Mutemba and Nchima Nchito. Kunda worked with the Nchitos to prosecute and “persecute” FTJ, These are ruthless individuals who’s interest is monetary gains at any cost. The Nchitos are unethical and dirty corporate layers, thats how they bought Zambian airways (Mining air Services) in exchange of legal fees only. This is the synopsis and geneses of the deadly Cartal! Its sad that HH is seemingly in good working relation…

  47. M’membe and his minions must pay back the DBZ loan. That’s the cracks of the matter, when Edger Lungu during the presidential campaigns promised to make “certain people pay what they own” the state institutions (ZRA, DBZ, NAC, etc.) Fred Namakando M’membe’s cartel fiercely de-campaigned him. This is because some loans were backed by individuals themselves (As Collateral) such as Mutambo Nchito and Fred M’membe. These loans since then groan big such that they cant afford to pay back, they will run bankrupt.

    • @ FAKE loadist NO IDEA WHO THIS LOADIST IS BUT ITS CERTAINLY NOT LOADIST. I HAVE NO OPINION ON THE PRIVATE DEBTS OF INDIVIDUAL CITIZENS. SECONDLY I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH INTELLIGENCE INFORMATION TO COMMENT ON THE EXISTENCE NOR THE STATUS OF M’MEMBES PRIVATE FINACIAL OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES. THEREFORE AS ORIGINAL LOADIST I WISH TO ISSUE A DISCLAIMER TO THE EFFECT THAT THE PRVIOUS COMMENT IS NOT MINE.

  48. I admire President Lungu as a man who dared to take on the cartel that has sought to manipulate state institutions. The privately -owned mouthpiece of the cartel, the Post, will not have told you that Finance Bank has an illegal shareholding structure. These cartel gate-keepers (Mmembe e’tal) have been promulgating a false identity based on a false narrative that every President that refuses to worship them is corrupt. What is a human rights record? Mmembe and those in the cartel think letting same-sex couples raise children is a top human right. This is what the fight is about, the cartel backed by neo – colonizers want to destroy the moral fabric of Zambia. But let it be said to the cartel lackeys of the likes of HH, Guy and Kabimba.
