PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Chama has predicted that President Edgar Lungu will get more than 60 per cent of votes in 2016 general elections.
Mr Chamba said President Lungu was expected to have a landslide victory of about 65 per cent in next year’s elections because of his massive agenda to rebuild and transform the country.
“I googled the website of heaven and I saw that President Lungu will win the 2016 elections.
“We will also win the 2021 elections as well as in 2026 and in 2064 according to my search,” Mr Chama said.
The PF Secretary General, who is currently on a party mobilisation tour of Southern Province, was speaking in Livingstone.
“President Lungu and PF will win by 65 per cent next year. PF has a committed leadership and what they have done is touchable and seen.
“The President is committed to improving the country and Zambians should just be patient because employment opportunities are coming massively,” he said.
Mr Chama said that the PF Government had paid farmers promptly and ensured early distribution of farming inputs unlike the previous Governments.
He also denied claims that he told opposition political parties to urinate into Kariba Dam so that the country could have enough water to generate electricity.
Mr Chama further dismissed claims that PF had already started political campaigns for 2016 as no one in the ruling party was addressing public meetings.
“It is some opposition parties that are dragging the police and holding public meetings without permits and this is unacceptable.
“I have informed the police for all the meetings s I have been holding but the opposition have the propensity to break the law,” he said.
Mr Chama noted with sadness that some organisations were not remitting taxes to Government and in turn accusing the State of prosecuting them when follow-ups were made on them.
He also said the PF was not using public resources on its operations as all funds were members and well-wishers.
“We don’t use public resources. Government has a lot of things to be done from tax payers money such as repairing roads.
“Here in Livingstone, I was received by about 50 cars from party supporters. The PF leadership in Livingstone under the chairperson Lawrence Evans is doing a commendable job and it is not true that it is divided,” he said.
