She said this in a video message released by her media team.

There has been widespread reports that Mrs Nawakwi has been trying to propose that she be appointed as President Lungu’s running mate.

    • So, what’s the difference between Edith Nawakwi and Dora Siliya. I think they are the same, if you know what I mean

    • This is my analysis.
      If UPND wins these elections, FDD will be a people choice opposition party. Because it is the only party apart from UPND which is strong. compare with MMD now dead. All these winter kabimba and DF are not as strong as Nawakwi’s FDD at the moment.
      If PF wins, FDD will be just a party like DF, and winter’s. because UPND will still be a people’s opposition party.
      So madam Nawakwi do this simple maths

  3. This is what is frustrates the Zambians. The politicians are too childish to say the least! The reality is that with only one MP, Nawakwi knows she can never win the presidential election. Worse still, she is taking the coming elections as a joke and doesn’t even care who wins the election! Yet this is the time when she is needed most, (not as president of course) but to help Zambians choose a good leader because the economy is in a dire state and its people suffering and need serious economic solutions!
    What’s the point and relevance of this woman in politics? Such jokers surely need to be lose big time so that we bury them in the annals of history! She is such an id.iot or should I say a moron to borrow a word from HH.

  4. Why are all so called opposition leaders so bitter? Am in Singapore and am wondering just where on earth are these opposition leaders in Zambia getting the idea that they will dramatically improve the economy of Zambian over night?
    Am sure a lot of Zambians are intelligent enough and are following the global trends that NO ONE amongst the opposition leaders are telling the truth.
    Looking at and reading what President Lungu has done in one year after death of Sata, am certain that he is winning these elections without defficult because he has proved beyond doubt that he can handle difficult times and find solutions instead of only ranting as seen by called opposition. Am sure the PF government is now certain that it has no opposition in the coming elections.

    • What is the relevance of citing Singapore if only to show (I am sure for you unintentionally) how much clearer a leadership Singapore has had over their almost same age of existence as the country you are from and claiming cannot improve overnight. Of course Singapore improved OVERNIGHT – mo.ron!! They were lower than your Zambia but positioned themselves, used people higher than your no-Grade 12 cadre politicians and harnessed the full benefit of their professionals. You wouldn’t be in Singapore if your Zambian blind leadership 50+ years ago had done what Singapore did!

    • What are you doing in Singapore? In 50 years Singapore has turned situation around and it is now a first world. This is inspite of the fact that it has no natural resources except its people. Compare this to Zambia, the country you have turned your back on; more than 50 years on and it is still directionless. The only strides that Zambia has made is in the area of corruption, tribalism, wako ni wako and disorganised street vending.

  5. PALIBA CIRCUS PA ZAMBIA! SHE IS SCORING HER OWN GOAL. SO, IT WAS SOME KIND OF A SET UP BY EDITH NAWAKWI BY LICKING HER OWN INFORMATION OF LUNGU’S RUNNING MATE. AND WHEN PEOPLE STARTED DENYING IT EDITH SO IT AS GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR A CAMPAIGN PRESS CONFERENCE. “THE GUILTY ARE AFRAID”, ZOONA. EDITH, YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE OPTED FOR A PRESS CONFERENCE, BECAUSE NOW WE KNOW FOR SURE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN YEARNING TO BE A RUNNING MATE OF LUNGU INSTEAD OF LUNGU HAVING BEEN AFTER YOU.

  6. If only women would back this lady to tip the balance but we know our women; its wishful thinking…she is by far smarter than the dull empty tin Lungu and much experienced than HH whose party collecting a lot of disgruntled PF cadres hoping to land a ministerial job.

  7. …she is a strong woman quite alright and better than most of her political counterparts…but what makes me wonder is the fact that even such an intelligent lady she is unable to read the political scene…is it deliberate or there is a gain somewhere when you file the nominations..??…I always wonder how and why the Miyandas…Milupis…Chipimos..Sichambas…the Mumbas contest….atleast Chipimo did the needful…why cant they just get a ride on either UPND or PF…??

  8. Was the president’s spokesman right! In one breathe, you mention, by name, a party which is desperate for you to be a running mate. In another breathe, you are talking about unnamed political parties which are going around courting you as their running mate.

  9. This is being power hungry at its best when last time she got about 15 000 nationally and hoping now to get 800 000. Where is the math path here? Power hungry. Ati Moyo ubumba.

  15. Some politicians are mad!!Edith Nawakwi got partly 15 000 votes in 2015 by election and she hopes to defeat both hh and president Edgar Lungu who had beaten her pants down?I KNOW DREAMING IS FREE,BUT ONLY A LUNATIC CAN DREAM LIKE EDITH NAWAKWI!!2016 general elections will only be between Edgar Lungu and HH!!SINCE ECL IS STANDING ON PF,A PARTY POPULAR IN MORE THAN 6 PROVINCES,HE IS A FRONTRUNNER!!dont forget that PF won in 2011 because people wanted change.then hh spoiled RB’s chances of winning because mmd’s votes in western,n/western,part of central and southern were split by upnd.if mmd competed with only PF,RB could have won because most those votes which went to upnd could have gone to mmd!!
