President Edgar Lungu at State house Press Conference
President Edgar Lungu at State house Press Conference

President Edgar Lungu says he is ready to assent to the Constitution Amendment Bill of 2015 as soon as he receives it.

President Lungu says it is unfortunate that some people are now saying that he should hold on.

The Head of State says Zambians have been given a constitution that they wanted.

President Lungu was speaking at Zambia Airforce City Airport shortly before departure for Shiwangandu in Muchinga Province, where he is expected to commission a 3-hundred hectare ZAFFICO forest plantation.

The President is later expected in Kasama to Commission the 1-hundred and 53 million dollars, Pensulo-Kasama Grid Transmission line in Northern Province.

This is the second energy project that President Lungu will be commissioning in the province this year.

Meanwhile, President Lungu says he will Not allow a breakdown of law and Order in the country.

President Lungu says he has received reports that some politician in Muchinga is arming cadres with machetes ahead of the elections.

The Head of State also says some people have been paid in Kasama to boo him as he arrives to commission the Pensulo-Kasama Grid Transmission line.

  1. Ba Lungu is scared of the looming embarrassing defeat next year. Things will be hard for PF next year and one wonders why the president is paying lip service to the unprecedented violence being orchestrated by the PF across the country.

    • PF thugs are involved in an orgy of violence against the opposition and yet he doesn’t say anything. And yet he is busy issuing unwarranted threats towards the opposition. The earlier we take out ich!puba out of state house, the better. Nonsense.

  2. This man is really not a head of state type. Why is he preoccupied as who will boo him? Why is he always on the defensive and warning the opposition? Lungu is the MOST useless head of state Zambia has ever had. Chagwa Lungu ch!puba ichapelekeshako. The !diot is only concerned with warning and issuing threats to the opposition. We are voting you out next year meno meno.

  3. Edgar Lungu’s careless outburst has really sent signal of panic to PF members across the country. In other words, if the President can be scared of the booing in former PF Strongholds, what more when it comes to next year. The president will even be fearing to travel across the country and if he travels he will alsways be accompanied by 5000 police paramiltary. The man is dead scared of HH. 2016, Lungu is losing and it is high time PF members start thinking of alternative parties to join after the 2016 elections.

    • The ***** is going next year. The PF are all a bunch of thugs. They make me sick. Just look at lunatics like Sunday Chanda, Davies Chama, Frank Bwalya, Kaizer Zulu, Chagwa Lungu, Max Chongo, etc. Oh Zambia, what have we done to deserve this?

  5. In other terms, the president does not want to waste resources for a rerun therefore, conceding early defeat to HH. His careless statement will cost him votes next year. As a PF carder, iam very disappointed with Lungu and i have now believed that HH will carry the day next year. Lungu has actually conceded early defeat. What a presidential candidate?
    I have now resolved to vote for HH in 2016.

  8. From what Lungu has just said, then they will be no need for elections next year. its better to allow HH to go unopposed since even the president knows PF is going no where. This man might have been drunk at the airport. He drunk all his way from Lusaka.

  9. Edgar Lungu will have himself if PF loses elections next year. His statement amounts to accepting defeat in advance and be a cry baby. For yo own information Mr President, no one can fight u in Northern or Muchinga Provinces. We just want to fight u in the voting booth by voting u out next year.

  12. Mr President, you have been the only consistent & committed President to deliver a People Driven Constitution. Some people don’t realize what this country has achieved which will be unrivaled for many generations to come. The new constitution signifies the re-birth of this country & you have competently presided over this process. I wasn’t convinced you would allow for such progressiveness in the country’s governance. I salute you sir & apologies for initially doubting your caliber. Thank God you are president of Zambia during this time & may the LORD continue to Bless You.

    • @ gankata
      We who?
      Who are those we?
      Hungry ones? Jobless ones? Ones without access to medical care, education, protection of law…?
      Or you mean “we” as the ones which enjoy fruits of institutionalized corruption, nepotism, theft of State resources, lawlessness, sharing of proceeds of tenders……………?
      We who?

    • Jay jay because you are offering us a concerted, pompous and mansonist tribalist for an alternative. We will still continue having this same hated by you Lungu because people like me find him honest, humble, focused and God fearing. I and my 2 teenage children are voting for Edgar Chagwa Lungu in the 2016 presidential elections. So, when you find out he is president again next year, don’t ask your silly, full of pompsity and self righteous question here.

  18. ALAS THE “JAMESON AMENDMENTS” WILL BECOME LAW! HE EVEN HAS THE NERVE TO REFER TO THIS “CONSTITUTION YACHIGAMBA” AS SOMETHING PEOPLE WANTED. COME 2016 THE PEOPLE WILL ELECT A GOVERNMENT CAPABLE OF DELIVERING A PEOPLE DRIVEN CONSTITUTION. NOT THE “JAMESON AMENDMENTS”!!!!

  19. Sorry UPMD, we have a President (with a large P) whether you like it or not just swallow the juice.
    The way things are going for you guys, the chances for HH are fast fading after your hilarious period of celebrating mine job losses. Miners are coming to terms with real facts, especially after hearing that Anglo is also laying off 85,000 miners. I hear that miners are very angry with HH and his campaign team on the Copperbelt for trying to dupe them. Especially that the promises of HH and his henchmen have resulted in most miners wasting their benefits on beer and shopping because of misinformation by UPMD that they will be reemployed soon.

    • @ terrible

      Speak about facts in Zambia not about the world as a part of Zambia.
      Tell us about 2 million jobs in 90 days, 500,000 jobs before 2016 election or 10,000 jobs before year ends.
      Tell us about lower taxes, about more money in our pockets?
      To hell with Anglo-American. Tel us about applicability of POA? Tell us about pardoning of CONVICTED RAPIST and his appointment as AMBASSADOR” against GBV?
      Tell us about ENTOURAGE of 238, chartering of plane, appointment of defrocked priest to the Board of Zesco, trial and error of fiscal policy, 1mbecility driven currency policy, loan interest rate of 25.5% to “enhance”local development………….

      Yes, you are right to call yourself “terrible”. Ad also “1mbecile” as a surname to clarify your intellect (lol)

    • @ Nzelu

      Bro, think again who did defeat HH in January? Or even better, number of ballots in third place in last election?
      50% + 1 its great opportunity for FDD and similar. But, do you understand that “President Nawakwi” will be just that after next election, president of FDD.
      Surf the net and educate yourself on how 50% + 1 works. Check what happened in France in last two weeks.
      Remember, enemy of my enemy is my friend. Friend of my enemy is my enemy.
      Time to choose wisely knocks on the door of FDD, UPND, MMD and the rest.

  21. Ba President,don’t worry about boos they happen everywhere.Just focus on fixing the economy and weed out incompetent people like Chama,Mumbi Phiri,Frank Bwalya,these are very polarizing and are making you more and more unpopular with their utterances.
    Also allow other parties to mobilize,your Chama,your wife and daughter are busy mobilizing,what are you scared of,and.please leave the Post alone you may need this paper in the future.Be seen to be fair,what you do to the Post do to other papers as well,that is statesmanship,don’t reduce yourself to a cadre.

  24. Sign the Half a loaf then we wait for a true patriotic government to finish the job. What the NGO’s and opposition are asking for exists in most of the civilized world so its just a matter of time. As our democracy matures a people driven constitution is inevitable. Not this PF driven constitution we are getting.
