President Lungu with Vice President Inonge Wina at State house

Vice President Inonge Wina has revealed that Government has not procured any presidential jet for President Edgar Lungu as reported by some online media outlets.

Mrs Wina told Parliament this morning that Government has no intentions of buying a jet for the Office of the President.

She was responding to a question from MMD Sinda Member of Parliament Levy Ngoma who wanted to clarify reports that Government has proposed the acquisition of a new long haul G5 presidential jet at a cost of K50 million to avoid commercial flights by President Lungu and his delegation.

‘Zambia is now becoming famous for speculation and speculative information and we adopt that as the gospel truth. As far as i Know, this Government has no plans to procure a jet for the President,’ Mrs Wina said.

She added, ‘ Mr Speaker, we have a bulky yellow book, if you can peruse through the yellow book and tell me where that money will come from, then i will agree with you but as for now Government has no plans of buying a plane.’

    • This is the time to develop wizard airforce. Don’t we always hear after flying sorcerers, engage them for a customized jet for the nation. This is where you Zambians appear foolish believing fo..olishness.

  1. Uko..!!! HH find a simple message to take to the people not just saying UPND will win the election, UPND can do it by itself, UPND is better than PF, or Zambians are tired of the PF… How have you arrived at such a conclusion.? Do you have figures to support these claims.? Politics is about the numbers not the holier than thou approach.

    • Big L
      Ever heard of ostrich’s head in the sand story? It’s people who suffering that will send this inept government to the rubbish pit not HH and his party . MMD were stronger than PF and had a stable economy behind them but look were they are today. It’ll be a miracle if PF bounces back next year, I’ll wouldn’t advice you to stake your house on them.

    • Don`t worry about Southern province, EL is winning 2016 elections. EL has atleast 50% share of votes and opposition political parties will share the remaining 50% .

      Please don`t hate the Tongas, they are good people and it is their right to give HH 98 % votes in 2016. Not very long ago, Tongas were not even insulting, it is now that they have joined the bad wagon because of politics. But there are some Tongas who not defiled.

  5. Wina azalila! … Am Tonga but won’t be used by funny characters just to champion their selfish agendas. Will vote for Lungu & the PF. My village has now been linked because of the tar road made by the PF. We are now able to take our produce to the market without any difficulties. Besides the available primary school has been upgraded to a secondary school. And the same upgraded school is seeing a face lift with new infrastructure.

  7. This Lungu guy really wasted an opportunity to be a good president. He should have taken the stance Mwanawasa took of not caring whether people hated him or not. Ka Lungu is the sort of chap who gets physically ill when he hears people do not like him and that is why he feels he owes everyone a favour as evidenced by half his cabinet being MMD. These are the traits of an extremely weak individual. Not presidential material at all.

We know of “nega nega” ambush u unleashed in January,but be lest assured that we will counter that with our weapon of mass destruction known as”wako ni wako”.

    • This stupit woman is NOT MY MOTHER! If she was I would commit suicide in case I inherited her stupitity!

      At one time I thought she had some INTEGRITY and HONESTY, but seeing her uselessness and inaction in the face of a DISASTROUS CRASH of the Zambian economy I have lost all respect for her. She is complicit in this PF nonsense that has brought Zambia back into generations of poverty and must accept a large part of the blame for getting an id!ot drunk elected as President.

      Just another PF kaponya milking the Zambian people for as much public money as she can before getting kicked out in 2016!

  12. U just have a wrong impression of Tongas.These ar very good and hospitable pipo ask anyone who once worked among them.Those comments of propaganda are just planned and twisted by typical tribalists themselves.It’s not reality.They’re good at analysing quality but de quality they see happens to be in a fellow tribesman hence perceiving them wrongly.They actually voted for Chiluba 100% and not the 98% u are talking about for HH. Please just spare them and u will prove it.Remember they are also created in the image of God.

  13. What is wrong with buying an executive jet?
    These are HARD-WORKING political leaders who take their office with them.
    In addition, Zambia is rich in mineral wealth, it can afford it.
    Give them credit for being proactive guys…THEY HAVE THE COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE AT HEART

  16. my prayer for Zambia is that the next Zambian President will be sober enough not to preoccupy himself with undoing what previous govts did, but be proactive and visionary, not pleasing his cadres but work to improve pipos lives! Pliz Mr president to be, we can’t eat tribe,relationships, politicking,insulting hatred, etc, Fight corruption earnestly, pipo are suffering currently am telling you!! ” Bootlicking is a leaders’ grave”! Let your leaders/tell you the truth,, many leaders are insecure, that’s why peronnaly I support, 50% 1 voting, whether wit a rerun or coalition gvt system!! God Bless Zambia!!! Am a ? registered voter, are You?
