President Lungu stresses a point at a Youth Rally at Freedom Park

President Edgar Lungu says he has intelligence information that the opposition UPND wants to cause confusion ahead of the 2016 tripartite elections.

President Lungu alleged that the UPND intends to cause confusion as it has realized that it is not going anywhere.He reiterated that the ruling PF is headed for victory in the general elections.

President Lungu has since implored the UPND leadership to uphold peace. He called on the police command in Northern Province not to hesitate in arresting anyone perpetrating violence.
Meanwhile, President Edgar Lungu is this afternoon expected to commission the Pensulo-Kasama 330Killo volts grid transmission project in Kasama.

    • This clown of a president is at it again. He wants to use his powers to ban UPND from mobilising its membership.

      Whether UPND goes out to mobilise or not, the people have already made their minds up, that PF kuyabebele.

    • When is this dull man going to understand that stu.pid statements like this are exactly what is causing the Kwacha to lose value ???????

      Is he trying to develop Zambia or to destroy it completely?

      Investors need stability and confidence in the economy, not this rubbish from the person that is supposed to be running the country.

      Brainless idi.ot!

    • No Mr Lungu!

      It is YOU that is trying to cause confusion by making such childish comments like this in public!

      If it is true, just fix the problem without alarming the Nation. That is your job. If it is not true then you are guilty of being unnecessarily alarmist and lying to the people.

      Try behaving like a President and not a failed dishonest lawyer!

  2. Comment: People who have run out of ideas cannot be hidden. Edgar Lungu has gone down in world history as the most incompetent president of this decade. The man has no ideas, where ever he goes, no wisdom comes out of his mouth but only lies. The people have resolved to boot him out and he knows it.

  3. We know that PF is winning sir but what we want is fairness in campaigning period and coverage.
    Everyone causing violence be it PF , UPND or MMD must be disciplined in a constructive manner.

  4. How did we end up with this lazy empty tin as head of state…he seems to assume he is only PF President and chief “commissioner” of projects…he never talks about policy issues. Why are you so fascinated by an opposition party when you have been given mandate to rule till 2016!!

  5. I wish HH was a foreigner, he would have been deported as I speak. Am tired of this HH, he has destroyed my once favourite Political Party (UPND). I now support whoever opposes HH. HH has no future, no direction, no vision, he uses people for his selfish personal gain. Work with HH at your own peril.

  7. Jameson at work. He breathes, eats, drinks UPND. Tell us stuff that will give us hope. You are president for crying out loud. Make sense. You can politic next year. If you really have that intelligence why not say exactly what they plan to do instead of making a blanket statement only intended to excite the overzealous PF cadre Charity Katanga.

  8. The opposite is true. Pf will be violent after losing to UPND. Ecl is no longer zambia’s choice, that is why he is restricting HH to campaign.

  10. Yes guys the President is absolutely right. I smelt a big rat the moment HH spewed his accusation that PF will rig the 2016 elections. I read that as a sign of admitting defeat early, but I thought it was meant to be a face saver when the defeat comes, now that the intelligence experts have deciphered the real intentions of UPMD, I see it.

  12. Mr. President sir, you are in charge of all the armed wings, including the police. Do not show any outward signs of panic. It is unpresidential to issue alarming statements aimed at curtailing the freedom of your political competitors. UPND to cause confusion? Your Secretary General has been campaigning in Southern Province unhindered, despite his refusal to apologize for his remarks against the Tonga people. No one threw stones at him or caused any sort of problem. If there is a place which has UPND cadres in abundance, its Southern Province. So then, if we are to take the President’s statements seriously, this was the chance for the opposition party to exact some form of retribution against their arch enemy. But nothing of the sort happened. Has panic set in like rigor mortis in a…

HH is going nowhere just prepare to elect Mweetwa as the president of UPND for 2021 election maybe UPND will form government, but with HH, just wait and see in 2016. For your reminder, never again say people have said, NO,NO,NO MAY BE FOR POOR TONGAS WHO HAVE NO EYES AND HEARS. viva PF AND THEIR VICTORY SEPTEMBER, 2016.

  15. I agree with Him!!!! But here is the thing Mr. President if you constantly harass someone for going about their business talking to their people around the country etc then what do you expect? Violence begets violence and you are indirectly promoting it by abusing the Public Order Act. Nevers is in Eastern province peacefully going about his business as per our laws and still you send the PF police to harass him. Please spare us your hypocrisy. You are supposed to be Zambian president but most of the time you are PF president, Its sad.

  16. Definition required for ’cause confusion’…

    A. Will cause head scratching as people try to work out who is making more promises

    B. Will cause eye blinking with a U turn and step down and join PF

    C. Will cause mass panic by announcing the results before the election (in favor of PF)

    D. None of the above

    Definition of ‘intelligence’ not required. ED simply has none but he is ‘clever’…

  17. Let the trouble be in the ballot box. Remember in politics no one wins or loses alone! When banks stop giving loans, it affects everybody regardless of who you voted for. Similarly, when a road is done, everybody drives on it regardless of who you voted for. When prices of commodities go up, everybody is affected. Let every Zambian remove this crude thinking about politics. This is not English Football where some Zambians have claimed being supporters of certain teams so strongly as if those teams are aware or they are consulted; This kind of thinking is useless like one demonic possesd person who confirmed of masturbating aided by imaginations of TV presenters who didnt even know him! This is stupid! Let us all be real. Let us face the realities. All countries in the world are competing…

    • Chinena you are a serious day dreamer. You are the only blind Man that cant read times. I am sorry to tell you that your “Pathetic Fools” are becoming more and more unpopular each and every day that passes. Their problem is that they have been taken over by an unusual fear called HHphobia.

      Let me tell you chinena, No matter how much you talk against HH God has already appointed him to takeover from this group of immoral tribalists. That’s why wherever they have a meeting they talk about HH instaed of talking about how they intend to revive our economy.

      If you dont agree with me just wait for 2016.

  24. Kachemas,how many lessons do you need to learn politically.You ve always been winning before polling day with landslide victories. The following re the errors you guys in UPND re committing;
    (1) Insulting the elected president is an insult and a slap in people’s face.This feat will not win any votes,but repel them.
    (2) Criticising everything grz does only shows how unreasonable and ungrateful people you re. People cant trust you with such attitude.

  25. (3) You equate HH to ECL in their standing in society. ECL is the President of Zambia and HH is not.HH is the president of upnd,an opposition party in Zambia. ECL is incharge of the nation,while HH is just as any citizen in that sense.
    (4) Overzealouslessness,anxiety and false alarms will only land you another heavy defeat. You ve been doing this all the time and its been doing you harm than any good. Its cunning to work quietly and mobilise more people.
    (5) Tell your HH to package a well articulated manifesto and sell it to the people,then he can stand a chance.Instead of being a serial critic,let him tell people what upnd stand for.
    With the above recommendations, I feel upnd can become relevant in this political landscape.

    • @ La Liga

      There are also similarities with his predecessor, Chiluba died as Ex. President and CONVICTED embezzler, ECL has achieved distinction to be elected to the Presidency as CONVICTED embezzler.

      Something that Zambians should be really proud of it. No body else in the World did achieve that, truly “unprecedented democratic development”.

  26. If HH wants to become President he can not be making so much under five mistakes of saying he will give the mines to Anglo while Anglo at the same time are retrenching 85,000 of their current employees world wide who ever is supporting this Mad he will be disappointed that he pretends to run the country with the hope of auctioning all the opportunity business enterprise like he did with the privatization of the mine.
    He can only cheat blind people who wish to be led by his blind sight like GMB now he has no where to go and stand as a running mate.

  29. If pf is so confident in winning let’s call for early elections so as to put the mayhem behind and get to rebuilding the economy. Even though people say Rupiah was a bad president he however had a plan of keeping things Levy initiated moving. We need to get the economy on track, open up the mines and get the employment situation under control. Please let’s move past politics for the future generations.

    • Who are you fooling open mines to sell your copper at what price? Opening a mine is heavy investment which requires copper prices to be on an upswing, currently the international prices for commodities have slumped, including that of crude oil. Most of the chaps chating HH and UPND are his tribemates, so they will say anything to make HH appealing. Noways am I voting for that man!

  32. Interesting remarks from the head of state: almost all top officials seem fixated on one HH and the party UPND. Bo Inonge singled out and banned HH from entering CB; ba Chanda, special assistance for press na ba Fr Frank, spend considerable time responding to HH; the Hon Kambwili, is not to be left out at bashing the UPND; ba Davis Chama is camping in Southern P hoping to expunge the ghost of HH; now H.E Lungu is alarming the nation to be aware of the threat that one HH holds……..it seems clear that HH is a non-issue to the great PF:)

Then u will understand why this is happening in our country,never should u put your trust in man man disappoints bt GOD will never disappoints us. Let’s stop what we’re doing nd go back to our GOD he’s ready to forgive us our sins.

  35. If some people say UPND is a party for only the people of Southern,then it means they are not violent coz Chama is going about his campaign business there freely even after shooting them and heaping them all sorts of insults and who will be the cause of that violence?Well! that’s food for thought.

      Zambian National Football “unprecedented development achievements” on and off the pitch?
      Somehow there are strong similarities with his “performance” (or lack of it) which according to leading member of his “intelligentsia” (lol) inner-circle, already merit third term.
