Earlier, President Edgar Lungu commended traditional leaders for playing a critical role in fostering development in their chiefdoms.

President Lungu says chiefs are an important interface between government and the people as they help to explain government programmes to their subjects.

Speaking when he called on Chieftainess Nkomeshya Mukamambo the second at her palace in Chongwe today, President Lungu said he will continue to consult chiefs on issues of national development.

And Chieftainess Nkomeshya Mukamambo the second praised government for completing various projects which the PF administration pledged to deliver since coming to power in 2011.

Chieftainess Nkomeshya cited the construction of the Leopards Hill Road and Palabana road.

    • HH is VERY VERY VERY DISHONESTY.
      You cannot say that if I lose I will not accept the results.
      But you say that if you win you will accept the results – in the same environment, same elections, same rules, same atmosphere.
      Who then can trust you HH? Under normal circumstances a person will not trust a person who says if this same thing is given to me then it is a good thing, but if the same thing is given to someone else it is poisonous – same thing??? Is that not an act of selfishness??
      I had little respect for HH but his conduct is becoming a big trial for my trust in him.
      Doesn’t HH have advisors? If he does, is that what HH’s advisors advise him?

    • “If I lose I will not accept the results, if I win I will accept the results of this same election, held under the same environment”, Please, Please, Please!!!
      I think that for me I see dishonesty, selfishness, greedy and not allowance for democracy in HH’s conduct.
      “If I pass No.1, then our teacher is good and knows how to teach; if someone else passes No.1, then our teacher is bad and does not know how to teach”, says a pupil. Do you believe this pupil?
      “If I win, the process is good elections are free and fair, if I lose, the same exact process is bad and the elections are free and fair”, SURE!!!!
      And you still manage to get people to trust you???

    • @Advice, Kaponya (HH) has low calibre advisors like William Tekere Banda who only know violence. It’s their only message. The UPND are very dishonest people.

    • Can someone explain to me what’s the manifesto of this Chakolwa Kaloba Wrungu or HH and GMB are also part of the Pfools policy and manifesto that’s why he won the award of the 2016 most incompetent and idi0tic president of the millennium.

    • Look or listen to Edgar Chakolwa Lungu talking about inconsistency on the part of ‘HH and GBM. Was he drunk when he was making those attacks on the UPND leaders? Does he realize that the economy of Zambia has run down because of his and his octogenarian Finance Minister’s policy inconsistencies? Iwe skull (Mr Kudos), have you suddenly forgotten how your President kept changing SIs on mines? Today your President is blaming others like he is blaming them on violence and yet he is waging war on children in Kanyama?

    • VICTIMIZATION IS LUNGU’S DNA PRINT. THIS GUY IS A THUG. LUNGU IS A THUG, AND MOST OF HIS MINIONS AROUND HIM ARE EQUALLY THUGS. OBSESSION TO POWER IS WHAT IS GOING TO KILL LUNGU, AS THOUGH HE WAS BORN PRESIDENT, WHEN HE JUST ACQUIRED IT DUBIOUSLY JUST YESTERDAY. ZAMBIANS ARE ENLIGHTENED, WE KNOW WHAT TO DO INSIDE THE BALLOT BOOTH ON ELECTION DAY. VIVA CHANGE VIVA! VIVA HH VIVA! VIVA UPND VIVA! VIVA ZAMBIA FORWARD VIVA!

  2. President Edgar Lungu is a father of the nation and the despots GBM, Wynter, Kaponya (HH), Scott Mmembe Inc all of them are his children.

    Although some are prodigal sons, they will be back in August and we will allow them to join from the grass roots.

    Kudos!

  5. Ok Ba Lungu, people may like you but if GBM and HH are contradicting themselves on strategies and policies, you don’t need to end just there. You needed to explain why the mealie meal is expensive and how or what you will do to reduce the price! Just attacking HH and GBM is tantamount to personal politics! You are already installing solar hammer mills. What is the reason for that? Most people in rural areas like Chongwe where you are grow there own maize and you have input support programme. How could the two help rural dwellers to have cheaper food? You can explain that!! I believe people in rural areas (typical rural may be not Chongwe) are not so much affected by the cost of mealie meal since they produce their own food! Talk about the infrastructure and how it will help them and the…

  9. Our President has told us the truth. GBM and Kaponya (HH) are not able to run the country, they’re not ready they are mad and full of greed. They are desperate to rule. This year we shall vote with 70% for Eddy Lungu and the PF!

    Kudos!

  10. Why does ECL not deal with what he and his party are offering instead of dwelling on character assasination. The Zambian economy is in a mess and needs to be fixed. Lungu has no plan to do so. Unemployment is around 70%,inflation is 21% p.a, the Kwacha is K11, no money in the pockets, the external debt doubled etc. So what did ECL achieve and what is his new offering to the voters? What has he to say about his violent thugs?

  11. Kaponya (HH) should start thinking of how to repay all the money he has borrowed for UPND campaigns. Then he should have a better plan to look after his impoverished cadres for the next 5 years.

    Truth be told he doesn’t have enough milk to braest feed his Under 5s for 5 years despite his collection of a wife, 3 presidential widows and a concubine Masebo

  21. These minions are continuing mixing up pictures.Analysis:These pictures are purely photoshoped.They are no different from the pictures manipulated in Zingalume compound 2days ago.Thats why i said that this I.T specialist is a layman,as he has made exactly the same mistakes here again.These chongwe pics are taken Exactly from the same angle as Zingalume pics,two(2) from the left side angle and others from the right angle.Again here the same question,where was the cameraman standing when taking these pictures-up or down?Lastly,the cameraman is showing us the same parts of Lungu-his back only & without other party members present, & lastly he is again showing us that background of vehicles & houses.The formula used is the same,very predictable combined pictures.Shame

  22. @Eddy,
    Mwaice,
    There will be no EXTRA TIME, NEVER…
    Lusaka is gone overwhelmingly.
    Luapula is already gone,
    Mchinga,
    Northern,
    Eastern,
    and Copper belt are all in the bag so where will HH get the vote? Not even in farms in Mpika.

  23. The only real crowd are the first 6/seven rolls also,the rest is fake.If you ve watched the music videos of Micheal Jackson,where people continue mounting up from nowhere in different directions with different backgrounds,This is exactly the same effect applied in these pictures.Its different photos from different places cut,copied and pasted together.Its done in a computer lab.I can confirm that this Drunkard has hired specialised I.T staff to do such evil works for him.The next thing they will start creating pictures of opposition party leaders with maybe a prostitute or beating somebody then post that in their newspapers,and then say,look you see,we told you.But i confirm to you that very soon this lie will catch up with them as people will start talking about it.Stare at these photos…
