Republican President Edgar Lungu says the inclusion of the 50% plus one vote clause in the constitution will enable all political parties to work together.
Speaking in Chikankata district when he addressed Residents after inspecting infrastructure projects in area today, President Lungu, however, said that some political party leaders will be consigned to the bench forever after the August 11th General election.
He says it is worrying that some political party leaders who claim to have a lot of wealth have failed to even construct a simple clinic or community school.
President Lungu says rich politicians want to be in power so that they can protect their businesses and get richer than the majority Zambians.
And President Lungu says people should not panic over who will be his running mate because there are so many people to choose from who can deliver according to the expectations of the people.
Mr. Lungu has also pledged that the PF will demonstrate that it is a peaceful party by conducting peaceful campaigns because the people of Zambia want peaceful elections.
Speaking earlier when he met Chieftainess Mwenda and Chief Nalwama, President Lungu thanked the two traditional leaders for welcoming them amidst reports that the PF Government is not welcome in the area.
President Lungu says he is delighted that chiefs in the country do not discriminate anyone on any basis saying they are there for all people.
And Chief Nalwama says such reports that the PF Government is not welcome in Southern Province are misleading because chiefs support the government of the day.
Seriously Lungu is sick in the head. ati some rich political leaders have failed even to build a community clinic…..Unshe nindalama zanyoko?
This will into extinction after 11th August 2016
Mr Lungu you are indeed a dull lawyer. Rich people pay more tax to the govern so that it can build clinics. I really don’t expect s drunk from Chawama to have basic economic knowledge. The more you open you mouth the more you expose yourself. Its explains why you avoid interviews from credible journalists
The list of benched politicians includes Edgar Lungu, Chishimba Kambwili, Frank Bwalya, Davies Chama, Chikwanda and other failures who have destroyed our country.
What has Lungu done for Zambia apart from making us all poorer with high Zesco tariffs, devalued Kwacha and hyperinflation! Lungu is blowing millions of dollars on himself and yet be wants other people to build clinics that his govt should be doing. What a munungu!
Poverty is indeed a disease.Is our president proud to be poor together with the people of Zambai? He is saying vote for me a poor man so that you can remain poor forever together with me. OOOh my foot! Zambia needs a savior. I hope HH’s message will be don’t vote for poor people because when they get into government their first priority is to steal as much as possible, go to as many countries as possible just to get on a plane and to make allowances. Poor people are wasting Zambia’s time to develop. No country has developed with poor leaders and people, never. You need rich people to become rich, period. Vote for poor and you stay poor forever.
HH has built a hospital his home village. What has Lungu done in his home village as an individual?
Ba Lungu, You yourself have even failed to build a cheap house for your relatives in Petauke. your village looks so deserted. charity begins at home.
Leave HH alone, its his money and donation is never forced on people.. Donate your salary to poor people if you are serious.
Agony is electing a President to come and sort out the countries problems only for the president to tell you that only God can sort them out, So just pray.
Absolute childish rant! What a President!
So Mr Lungu, who are you going to chose as a running mate?
GENERAL KUNENE ???????
This guy has really lost the plot. We have to have another clause in the Constitution that forces candidates to go for a medical examination before elections —
INCLUDING MENTAL HEALTH TO WEED OUT LUNATICS !!!!!
Chinama case for sure!
Whether people like it or not, Lungu is a peopel’s person. He’s friendly and he’s a peace maker.
From under what rock did you just crawl?
Ba Seize Banda – Do you know that the argument the Democrats have in the US? To tax the rich adequately – hope that helps you to understand a few things. Why should we entrust the presidency to a rich man who has failed to show corporate citizenship.
”Why should we entrust the presidency to a rich man who has failed to show corporate citizenship.”
What are you on about ?? HH pays more taxes then most and has built a mini hospital in his village, he employs more than 500 Zambians…..
Jealousy kills you should know…
You feel you know your stuff, but your posting is telling us you know diddly squat! .
Now tell me, what is CSR? How do you demonstrate CSR? What is the standard yardstick by which the success of CSR is measured?
See, this is a controversial topic you have touched on.
But to show you how flawed your logic is, I say this to you: A person is not a corporation. CSR can only be requested from a corporate entity, not a person. In fact persons create C-corps to isolate themselves from their businesses. Know this: No corporation that included a CSR program in its business plan ever sought political office, assuming it realized it had legal rights similar to those of a person.
Was that simple enough?
This is poor reasoning Mr president,u only failed to menstion them but poor people like u are ones stealing from your fellow poor Zambians making its economy criple to its toes.
Mulekwatako umuchinshi it is true the rich just want to protect their dubious earned wealth
Why should rich people begin to fill in for the government? 50 years and counting we have children learning under mango trees? And low expectations poor Zambians think we will get by on humble pie. Dream on!
Eve akudya. Inu ana akunya manzi. Weru!
WHY SHOULD RICH POLITICIANS BUILD FROM THEIR RESOURCES. FROM YOUR FAT SALARY AND ALLOWENCES IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU HAVE BUILD SIR? AT LEAST A RICH LEADER WILL NOT NEED TO PLUNDER OR DESTROY. WE THE TAX PAYERS MONEY IS WHAT SHOULD BE USED TO DEVELOPE OUR COUNTRY NOT ALWAYS BEING THE BEGGERS FROM FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND HEAPING DEBT ON AN ECONOMY THAT HAS ALREADY CRUMBLED.
Let us very how this rich got rich in the first place.
The so called rich are the most dangerous plunderers
give examples ??
I’ve never thought about it but President Lungu is right. Why rich people are failing to build even a clinic but boast of building hotels, buying trucks etc. What they have done with money is what they will continue doing wen they get power even with impunity!
Can you please explain why the “rich people” pay tax and that money should be used for what? Paying over 500,000 Dollars for one week holiday in New York? Taking musicians to New York to alleviate boredom of UN General Assembly? Do you know how many clinics you can build with 500,000 USD?
And if “rich people”, as you say, are already rich and do what they want to do with impunity, do they need to be in Government to still?
Well, THINK ABOUT IT!
Those same rich people are the ones building the Nation by starting businesses and providing jobs for thousands of people.
What is this useless Lungu doing? Promising 500, 000 jobs and how many has he delivered? Plenty of jobless miners! That is all. It takes money to start businesses, but all Lungu and his friends can do is grab our Taxpayers money and spend it travelling in other countries!
Rich people build hotels because they are bussiness minded and and they buy trucks because those will generate money. It is people like this that we need to rule because they will think of generating money for the economy instead of being vertialy beggars after 51 years of independence and thinking sensibly about how to get proper money from our natural resources instead of getting bribes from some investors for them to come and plunder our resouces.
There it is again – the comment on his running mate. Mwati, is Inonge safe? It looks like PF is preparing for a change at number 2.
mature statement from the president.
Comment: I hav never heard HH boasting that he is rich.Am getting it from chagwa 4 the first time.Looking at his utteraces one will agree with me that the chap was talking out of petty jealous.Jealous kills, and it will definately kill chagwa.Is there a law which says when u are rich u nid to build a clinic?.HH will b the republican president on 12-08-2016,whether u like it or not.
What Changwa is talking is the responsibility of the government of the day. But because Lungu is demented, he has forgotten who is the president and that is why as usual denying responsibility.
Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. THE AUTHORITIES THAT EXIST HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED BY GOD. CONSEQUENTLY, HE WHO REBELS AGAINST THE AUTHORITY IS REBELLING AGAINST WHAT GOD HAS INSTITUTED, AND THOSE WHO DO SO WILL BRING JUDGMENT ON THEMSELVES.
You submit to righteous laws and righteous acts, in the book of acts the Apostles said they would rather obey God than man if what the leadership is doing is contrary to the word of God. We need to draw a line between cults and Godly leadership, manipulation and good leadership and the test is whether there lives are according o the word of God.
This axctly what C Kambwili said, he didn’t mention any that it was LOZI,CHEWA, BEMBA, TONGA, LUVALE who can vote against JESUS.
And president Lungu has said the same thing he didn’t mention anyone who he said some rich politician will be benched.
You need critical thinking to understand inferences.
ask the pipo in monze who built moyo clinic they will tell you that the same rich guy built it but what did sata and you done in your villages not even in chawama. visit the pipo in petauke and see how they are walloping in poverty.
Mr President you are right, wealthy is good and remembering the poor is a good thing too. Real wealthy should translate in helping communities and not just one person having fancy house and cars. Iam not saying its bad but we should not be self centered. Lets remember the poor
HH said he has built a mini hospital in his village, Lungu says they have failed to even construct a simple clinic or community school.
Who is lying ?? HH or anyone can you show us evidence of this mini hospital so Zambians can see a true crook.
Jag vet inte! This Lungu man!
Comment:it is true kanshi he has faild to build a simple clinic???hav just comfirmed mr presido..
Is HH and GBV rich or just noise makers?
Surely some one needs to investigate this LAZY BUM’S credentials….this bum can not be a lawyer…I just read the first sentence and..no further comment!!
Dull president. Lungu doesn’t know that its the private sector run by businessmen like GBM and HH that builds the economy through taxes and employing people. Zambia is the only country in the world that does not honour its hard working businessmen. Any rich man in Zambia suddenly becomes a Satanist. We are so resigned to being poor that hard work has become a curse. Nigerians are proud of their Dangote. Zambians would rather waste their time dancing for Lungu hoping for handouts instead of spending time building themselves and families through hard work. Zambia never used to be like this. We have sunk so low that I feel confused about just what hit us.
You can say that again Mr President..Edgar Chagwa Lungu…some politicians will go into obliviation….we know who….can’t mention names
2016 Vote PF ( Edgar )
I thank you
Lungu does not inspire me at all with his utterances and he seems to believe alienating himself from the rich is the best way to govern. If anything he should have been promoting policies that would encourage more Zambians to generate wealth! He behaves like the rich do not enrich through taxes the national coffers where projects he exalts himself with draw the funding needed! Just like the way he does not listen to the commercial farmers who contribute more than 65 % to the national food basket! This Lungu is one very divisive leader who up to now has not awoken from disbelief that he presides over national welfare. Failing to make the grade as a top flight lawyer on the Zambian scene should not be passport for him to disparage others who have made it through working hard!
So nothing was said about the infrastructure development that was being inspected? Then this was a compaign. By the way, where is Lucky Mulusa who was employed for such?
My advise to Jameson and other beers Lungu is that cut down in your drinking and socializing and who knows, you may just accumulate wealth like HH. iWE lUNGU, understand that HH is an individual and not an institution. You were inspecting government funded and not Lungu funded projects. HH pays more tax than you will ever pay and that money went towards funding those same projects you are using as campaign material. Mr. President, we want to create wealth people in Zambia so please don’t make it a crime to work hard and accumulate wealth. I would rather have a wealth person in state house than a poor person like you who will spend half the term acclimatizing to newly found affluence.
YOU UPND CADRES YOU WILL GET SHOCKED YOU HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THE PRESIDENT JUST LIKE YOU MASON UPND LEADER.ZAMBIANS WILL SHOW YOU THAT THEY DONT LIKE SELFISH AND POMPOUS LEADERS.THIS YEAR ITS ANOTHER KOLOPA .COM.50%+1.VIVA EDGAR LUNGU CONTINUE SHOW CASING YOU GOD GIVEN WISDOM.SHOW THEM THE DIFFRENCE BETWEEN YOU AND HH+GBM.
Welu Chi silencer back to sender.Tufyakwa chineke woo.Every rich man ati he is a Satanist.Zambians lets abash stone age politics.lets work like slaves and leave like Kings.
@ Shimaine, why do you bother responding to this dull moron Silencer?
He is just an escaped inmate from Chinama Mental hospital that has drunk too much alcohol and smoked too much chamba.
You can see that he doesn’t even know how to use the caps lock!
Lungu is really a misallocated resource. A product of corruption.
Even a simple marky2 is able to help orphans.why cnt he who has more money emulate this young and poor guy,by helping the needy.It is not the government that will do everything for us citizens,we also have a role to play to help those who are poor when we have the resources.am dissapointed with some zambians mental ability to think properly
Always dull people talk rubish. They should learn to admit that they lost last year. Munyono Mubyabi kapati. Libelekele ayebo ukabe kabotu. Mwile bo kulumbaihya muntu utakuhyibi akuba president. Uya kukulanga mbulikuti uli chi do mati
Yo Excellence Lungu U Are 1000% Right This Hy Is So Selfish North Western Has Been Voting For Him But No Project To Thank Pipo He Just Buys Kachasu And Boxer For His Voters. He Rides On Tribal Aproach To Convince Voters.
North Western Now Has Moved Away From This Type To Infrastructure Development Which Will Change The Province For Gud,provide Also Employment.
Hy Pipo Think U Can Be A Gud President Which Is The OPposite U Can Be The Worst President South Of The Equator.
One U Are A Dictator,ruthless,self Centred,boastiful,tribalistic, Etc
