President Edgar Lungu says he is determined to improve the livelihood of the vulnerable people in the country.

President Lungu says he is passionate about uplifting the welfare the Zambian people, especially the vulnerable ones in society.

Mr Lungu says he is concerned that poverty has continued to inflict the majority Zambians.
The Head of State said this when he made an impromptu visit Mwayasuka Main Market in Mwayasuka area in the newly created Chisamba district of Central province.

“I’m passionate about lifting the high poverty levels among the Zambian people. Meeting and sharing with them as l have done today is one way of addressing poverty so that government can know their plight,” he said.

Mr Lungu inspected and toured stands and interacted with the marketers and traders.
He later visited and toured other makeshift markets situated along the Chisamba-Lusaka highway.

Mr Lungu assured that government, through the line ministries, is working round the clock to addressing the high poverty levels among the people in communities by providing them with the necessary incentives and inputs.

He pledged to end poverty in the country through various ambitious programmes being implemented by his government.

This was on his return to Lusaka shortly after officiating at the 2016 Third Expo-Tech Exhibition in Chisamba, Central province.

Meanwhile, business came to a stand-still as President Edgar Lungu’s motorcade penetrated and entered the Capital city, Lusaka.

President Lungu was greeted to a thunderous welcome by scores of people who lined up the streets from Chisamba all the way to Lusaka to have a glimpse of their leader.

He passed along Cairo Road and Independence Avenue as members of the public responded “Pabwato: ni Lungu chabe” and assured him a 100 per cent vote in this year August 11 poll.

Mr Lungu, who was scheduled to use his Presidential chopper, decided to travel by road as a way of his ‘modern fashion’ of interacting and greeting the people.

    • I guess there are many of such documents by the PF because also this idea of the President being a good Christian from no where no church no baptism. First lady going to any church gathering from no where. But the first family has been insukated from the real nature of the family and no one questions: Which Church does ECL go to? When was he baptised? But today ECL is portrayed as Christian even verses are given to him just to convince the gullibles!

  1. Lungu is chosen by God. He is winning this year’s elections by a landslide. Watch the space! My family and I have resolved to vote for Chagwa. Viva Lungu!

    • You fool, People want change. the population is too big than Your family members which maybe under 10 members. This Lungu has failed to create employment, howcan he eliminate poverty??? Those remarks are just there to win votes come 11.8

    • @kanjimaano waba etallay why insult someone for making his choice if you have chosen the Freemason that’s also your choice and please don’t people want change which people speak for your self Chika.la. ECL chapwa all the way.

  2. The Lazy BUM is so determined that his pot belly is becoming bigger every month…I’m sure the genius he is, he is looking for a loan somewhere.

  3. So you want our President to appear thin and malnourished then its gonna be OK for you? Grow Up man!

    IFINTU NI LUNGU…EGDAR ALL THE WAY!!

  4. The number of people gathered can tell you that he has no support. You cannot eliminate poverty when you have rampant corruption, break down in rule of law, and an economic crisis. LUNGU PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW EXACTLY YOU PLAN TO DO THIS???????? POVERTY REDUCTION COMES WITH GOOD GOVERNANCE, REDUCED CORRUPTION SO THAT THE AVERAGE PERSON OUT THERE CAN HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY, AN SOLID ECONOMY THAT CAN SUPPORT GOOD WAGES AND JOB CREATION WHICH LEADS TO GREATER TAXES AND IMPROVEMENT OF SERVICES. IN SHORT, YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING OR SAYING. PLEASE AUGUST 11, PREPARE TO LEAVE
