President Edgar Lungu has declared that the Patriotic Front-PF- is ready to mount issue based and violent free campaigns.

The President says the PF is ready to start campaigns when Parliament is dissolved next month.

The Head of State says he hopes stakeholders will respect the wish of the majority in the elections in August.

President Lungu said this in an Interview with ZNBC News at the Lusaka

City Airport, shortly before he left for Chama District.

He said he will spare time to interact with the local people during his two day working visit to Muchinga province.

And speaking when he made a stopover in Mfuwe President Lungu called on PF members that applied for adoption to respect the outcome of the process.

The President says he will not impose any candidate but allow the Central Committee to do its job.

President Lungu said this when he addressed party officials.

Meanwhile President has arrived in Chama District on a working visit.

President Lungu is in Chama to commission the Chama District Hospital and inspect some roadworks on the Chama-Matumbo and Chama-Ludazi roads.

President Lungu is also expected to officiate at the Zambia Wildlife Department function.

The President will later in the day proceed to Chinsali district for another series of programmes.

  2. Why is this professional failure (PF) leader talking about campaigns and UPND not the current issues facing the Zambians and what he has done to they resolve these issues sustainably. He is more concerned about HH and the election than serving the Zambians. We did not put you in office to be campaigning or talking about UPND. Can you please get to work in the last month you have in office before parliament is dissolved and we fire you because you are useless president

  3. Desperation from UPND is really reaching dizzy heights. The Truth is that UPND with their HH is losing big time come 11th August, 2016. Armagedon will break loose in HH’s A**E after the Zambian people have rejected him. Ha Ha Ha

Not that it makes any difference when pipo’s minds are made up

  5. This is a hypocrite of a president. I certainly do wonder at the caricature of Lungu being a humble and God fearing man. Spare me the bluff, this chawama drunkard can not be taken seriously. What was he just trying to insinuate in Western province when he referred to Sakwiba – an issue which is long gone and dead.
    We are putting you behind bars once we form government.

  6. Dirty UPND agenda: Hard-core tribalists are the majority of people behind the UPND party. The tribalism tag cannot be wished way because they the Tonga have created a tribal tag for themselves whether it’s in work places or the communities where they live. Take Mr Magande for example he is the man that sourced funding to persecute bembas and easterners between 2001 and 2008. That agenda has not died; given a chance they will still persecute the two major tribes. Someone needs to apologise.

  7. Sorry you dumbass drunkard.

    You had your chance to address THE ISSUES and we now know you are too clueless to even understand what the issues are!

    We are suffering because of your incompetence and foolishness and your obsession with getting re-elected instead of doing the job you are paid to do!

    Just get out and hand over to someone that has the interests of the people of Zambia at heart. Your selfishness, greed have shown us you only have your own self as your goal

    You have done damage that will take GENERATIONS to repair

  8. IT IS A WELL KNOWN FACT 100% TRUE. Hard-core tribalists are the majority of people behind the UPND party. The tribalism tag cannot be wished way because they the Tonga have created a tribal tag for themselves whether it’s in work places or the communities where they live. Take Mr Magande for example he is the man that sourced funding to persecute bembas and easterners between 2001 and 2008.

  9. Yes they have cleansed their party of the tribal tag that it earned when HH succeeded Mazoka at that infamous convention. We have advised them countless times to admit the mistake and cleanse themselves and they have never agreed. Obvious the fear was that if they officially denounced tribalism, they would be opening themselves to leadership of other tribes. So they opted for cosmetic camouflage, recruiting useless fools like Fat Albert and Mandevu. Well, now they will pay heavily for it because the tribal tag has resurfaced with a vengeance they will not be able to withstand. That tribal tag is set to play a very important role in the elections.

  10. Unbelievable! From Western Province commissioning a bridge, to Chama via Mfuwe and Muchinga province, to commission a district hospital and another road. Then off to Chinsali. Yet he talks about issue based campaigns at some point in time. Why isn’t he addressing those issues NOW! All this commissioning, opening a ‘katemba’ here and there, could be done by a district commissioner or under secretary or something. An ‘entire’ President criss-crossing the country to pose by simple everyday expected projects. When does he sit down to assess socio-economic matters? What do his ministers do, since he appears to be associating himself with every minor event?

  11. Depending on other tribes to win is what is killing UPND. How do we vote out a working govt and bring in someone with no experience in govt. GBM and SCOTT you are more experienced than HH in govt . surely how do you bring yourself down like that? NO VACANCY FOR UNTRAINED PRESIDENT

  14. He forgot to put the icing on the cake, how about a presidential debate between him and HH, if he had hinted something like that, we would have known that this time he has meant a serious issue based campaign.

  15. ….he lacks capacity for substantive debate on the issues, all he can do is lecture voters on tribe–to be exact, tell them not to vote tonga, but bemba or chewa alone as these two tribes are the only ones allowed to rule–when anyone outside of this grouping seeks office, that is the definition of tribalism. When all ministries, parastatals and missions abroad are packed with bemba chaps, that is not tribalism, but to want to vote for an individual who has a vision, the right background, and is zambian of tonga heritage–that voting for that person, supporting that person is tribalism. When HH gets 2% in northern, luapula and muchinga combined, then that is the order of things–etc,etc–substantive debate indeed. Lets wake up guys and kick these guys out before they polarize us beyond…

  16. Talking about UPND and its leadership is issue based? Zambia is under siege, hunger, poverty, disease, unemployment the list is endless, these should be the issues to address

  17. ECL and PF know that they cannot win the 2016 elections thru a popular vote. The key to their win is thru rigging. This rigging will be done at three critical stages. 1. They will print thru ECZ extra and pre-marked ballot papers . 2. In urban areas and HH’s perceived strongholds at least 40% of voters will be disenfranchised by either deleting their names from the voters roll or voting matearials will not be delivered on time. 3. Vote Counting will be manipulated infavour of ECL and PF. While perfecting and oiling their rigging machines, Lungu now wants to divert attention to talking about issue based campaigns and talk about tribalism. Zambians should not accept being woodwinked their vote is being stolen right under their noses. That is what Mugabe next door did in Zimbabwe in 2013…

  18. Bitterness will bring you down you people. Learn to remain composed if you think you are popular. Learn from how well composed is ECL. HE IS TRULY GOD GIVEN. THE POSITION IS FOR A BROTHER AND NOT A SATANIST. ZAMBIA IS TO BE RULED BY A GOD FEARING MAN. WATCH AND SEE HOW IT WILL BE. THE OPPOSITION HAS A STRATEGY OF MAKING EVERY THING LOOK BAG. YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME.VOTE FOR ECLFOR PEACE.

  19. @CM, you started well with lower case letters, then suddenly changed to higher case type. What is the problem brother, paranoia? More like someone possessed, starting off with a normal voice then suddenly screaming.
