    • More to you and your administration. You win, Zambians win. Stay the course with momentum with animateD foot soldiers. Under the Chagwa Presidency, it’s no true Zambia left behind. Blessed is this selfless President with a meek spirit.

    • Mr President, why not check also the progress of the Chingola – Solwezi road? What PF seem to miss like now is that people have seen the so called “massive development” so many times in the last few yrs on ZNBC & ZANIS news, that it doesn’t excite anybody, anymore as achievement. Remember KK was voted out after building UNZA, UTH, Gt North & East Rd’s etc. Just work on cost of living to get votes, otherwise it’s like buying Plasma TV at home when there is no m.meal. No one will be impressed…!!!

      True mate. We Zambians and africa as a whole we should know that roads building in itself is development but we should also remember that it is Govt responsibility to build roads, etc so in the first time it is developmeny only if there was no road before. But living standards improvement is the best development world wide. It is like wearing beautiful cloths but you are hungry witgout food on the table. No matter how good you can look without food you are nothing. So let us develop our health and food then the whole world will know us and they will come to buy and admire us. Take a good example of Cuba. This time place lacks development but health wise not even america can beat them. Food wise they are good also.

    • @1.3, MR LUNGU HAS GOT A PLANNED PROGRAM. HE IS NOT VISITING THESE PLACES AT RANDOM. IF WHERE YOU WISH HIM TO GO IS IN HIS PROGRAM, HE WILL. BUT, OBVIOUSLY DURING CAMPAIGN TIMEME HE WILL BE TOUCHING ALL PLACES INCLUDING THOSE NOT OF YOUR PERSONAL INTEREST. BUT, IF YOU ARE SO DESPERATE YOU CAN ASK YOUR TRIBAL HH TO GO THERE FOR SHOPPING.

    • 50 years after independence and we get excited when a road is constructed and at great cost through loans or RDA flawed tender process….what a shame…a road like health care is a basic right…this is why you pay tax. You mention this lazy bum Edgar commisioning a solar plant…how many M-watts and what cost, they had to wait until it was too late and start panic buying solar products.

    • Lungu and his PF are panicking. People are already fade up with their fake messages and are waiting patiently to hear HH s message in May.

      What ever they are doing is not going to save their asses because know that PF is a poor finisher and full of thieves.

      HH is making these guys to panic.

      VIVA UPND AND HH TEAM

  3. Why campaign heavily when you’re the incumbent?. It is said ‘Action Speaks Louder than Words’, therefore when you’re a sitting president and seeking another five year mandate your economic, social, legal, political, technological and other performance criteria of your country during your term should be sufficient enough for voters to make informed and intelligent choices. It appears the top PF political leadership has gone into panic mode and moving all over claiming to inspect developmental projects when they’re actually campaigning. The head of state should give hope and answers to how he intends to reverse the economic turmoil which has engulfed the nation and other negative political and governance trends.

    • @4, THEY ARE NOT CAMPAIGNING. THEY ARE INSPECTING PF GOVT PROJECTS AND MEETING ALL AFFECTED PEOPLE TO HAVE IDEAS ABOUT THEIR NEXT DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS THEY WISH FOR AFTER THOSE THE GOVT IS ALREADY IMPLEMENTING IN EVERY CORNER OF ZAMBIA. GO LUNGU GO, GO INONGE GO, GO PF GO. VIVA ALL ZAMBIANS.

  9. The PF’ strategy is a political miscalculated one,they think that people are happy with all these manoeuvres while suppressing the opposition.People need new hope & assurances more especially from HH & his team.PF is just cheating itself,people are despondent with it,anyway,let it finish all its lies before its start saying ME TOO from HH & his team!This just makes UPND & Zambians more anxious for regime change,imagine another 5years of mediocre rule with poverty,violence,unemployment,corruption,nepotism & mismanagement as well as kaloba after kaloba!Only ghosts will vote for PF!Its so surprising that these devils in PF are not seeing it not normal to campaign alone!

  10. let him come, we will harras him such that he will never come here again. look at chingola – solwezi road malabishi. how can he keep on commissioning more roads even before he finishes the first ones?
    if we harras you its not upnd cadres but zambian cadres who feel neglected. the other day we saw a road collapse in mpulungu like a bridge that was due to shoddy works at our expense and you allow that.

  12. The winning of mseveni after so much publicity of the opposition by the media speaks volumes of what may happen after 11th august. its possible that the man labeled vision-less when he is abroad marketing Zambia or lazy when he visits the developmental projects taking place in Zambia will win with a very large margin. Look at the huge margin of mseveni, i would like to believe that he rigged like many say but with 5million to 2million, we might think twice. If really you Zambians want change especially those in the diaspora who insult so much but know they won’t vote themselves, kindly return home, register as a voter and vote for your candidates so that they can stand a chance of winning. Otherwise its ECL.

    • Museveni, Mugabe, Nkuruzinza, Kagame and Kabila have brutalized and raped the collective consciousness of the citizens.

      This will NOT happen in Zambia. North Western Rhodesian psych is such that they can neither be intimidated nor bought in the bulk unlike their Northern Bemba speaking compatriots. And tribal balancing in Zambia makes the madness obtaining in these other dictatorships untenable for long.

      Watch ECL minuscule votes especially from North Western province in August.

  14. Comment: A beligerent president is set to kill using police during election. He said if police have failed to deal with UPND then they shld step aside. The meaning of this is of course he will deploy soldiers to demolish UPND because his cadres have failed.

The more hatred you acumulate the weaker your body cells become. The weaker your cells the more diseased you are likely to be. Stop killing yourselves by seeing bad always in PF becoz its not good for your health.

  18. The president and veep are simply doing their work we elected them for. If opposition is seeing this as campaigns it’s very unfortunate. These guys were not voted into power to be sitting in offices only but to see whether the talk is matching the implementation. You also need to check the dictionary meaning of campaign so that you avoid posting irrelevant comments.

  22. Lungu let the opposition parties campaign just the way you are campaigning! Why use police and PoA and Public media to muzzle them whilst you hardly stay at your workstation but busy galivanting and campaigning. Even dictatorial KK’s UNIP was better it allowedcampaigns way back in 1989 for 19991 election. I NEVER SEEN SUCH FRIGHT OUTRIGHT UNFAIRNESS FROM AN INCUMBENT BEFORE DESPITE HIS SLANTED ADVANTAGE THAT COMES WITH INCUMBENCY! Shame! If this continues I would encourage the oppostion to start a campaign of civil disobediency/unrest. If someone cannot respect your rights. FIGHT FOR THEM! PERIOD

  23. @Luapula Premier-we know you to be mad,consider Chainama just like your cohorts Eddy & Katondo Boys!Mind you,some provinces have never been considered for such developmental projects despite them contributing massively towards the treasury more than your Northern provinces put together. Some Provinces only get hate speeches,violence & all sorts of unprintables as their rewards! Then stupid & dull PF leaders want these neglected provinces to vote for their drunkard leader.Anyway,only two months left for kick off time & no one will be told who is the next president!

    • And it is all because of Lungu? This kind of ignorance ranting is what will cost your little god votes this year. As far as most of us are concerned Gulf economies despite the war in Syria are facing declining economies just like Zambia because of the cooling in the economic growth of China resulting in very low demand = low prices for commodities such as copper and oil. Ours is a very small economy which has been dependent on copper for forex.
      It is criminal and extreme naivity to blame Lungu for the economic hardships we are currently facing! As far as I’m concerned, I will vote for Lungu because he has kept the economic momentum in the face of difficulties. Go on and vote your choice, but if my candidate wins, no rumour mongering of rigging!

PF did not bring the word poor, it came before PF. pipo have been suffering before PF thats why PF is introducing new districts, building schools, hospitals and roads.

  31. The cost of living is perennial, no one shall bring down the costs except the son of God. Never. The cost of a 25kg of mealie meal in SA in R115.00 today.

    When I arrived in South Africa 1990, the Rand was R2.00 to a Dollar. Its now R16.00.
    Today one mining company in Zambia has just announced and investment worth millions in our mines at a time when HH’s Anglo American is closing down mines world wide and consigning miners and their families to untold miserly.
