PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says he is confident that the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) will win next year’s general elections due to his leadership style of embracing everyone.
Mr Lungu said a good leader preached oneness, peace and unity and not one that promoted differences and divisions.
He has since urged the people of Southern Province to vote for a President who did not promote tribalism and one whose aim was to develop the nation.
He challenged the Southerners to vote him out of office if he failed to take development to the area.
“With the purpose of oneness and unity, I am confident that we will win next year’s elections once the date is set,” he said.
The President said this at a rally at Kanzinze grounds in Maamba yesterday.
He said there was no tribe that was superior to the other as it was possible for anyone from any tribe including Tonga to become the President.
He pledged to work with the people of Southern Province and urged them to offer solutions so that they too could contribute to the betterment of the country.
“Ndakoomba atubelekele antomwe tusumpule ciisi caa Zambia ( please let’s work together to promote Zambia) ,allow me to work because I am the current President, I promise to work with you,” he said.
He said his party believed in oneness and the uniting motto saying those promoting tribalism at the expense of gaining political mileage were headed for doom.
The President has also called on people in the Province to register as voters in numbers.
