PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has assured Zambians that every part of the country will receive a fair share of development as long as the Patriotic Front (PF) remains in power.

Mr Lungu said he was a president for all Zambians and thus he would not deny any part of the country development even if they did not vote for him.

Addressing a huge rally at Mutendere Ground in Kafue yesterday, President Lungu observed that Zambia was one country and thus he did not want other parts of the country to be developed while others lagged behind.

“I want to assure you that no part of Zambia will remain undeveloped as long as we remain in power,” he said.

President Lungu assured Kafue residents that the development which was being experienced in Lusaka and Western provinces, among other areas, such as township roads would be extended to the district and turning Kafue District Council into a Municipal Council.

President Lungu said he would engage the Ministry of Finance to ensure that it pumped in more money into Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia to revamp it.

He also pledged to tackle unemployment and look into the challenges of retirees in Kafue.
President Lungu noted that his predecessor the late Michael Sata had taught the party to ensure that development benefitted the poor as well and not restricting it to the rich.

President Lungu reiterated his warning against experimenting with leadership as voting for other candidates who had never even served as councillors before risked retarding development as they would take time to learn how to govern the country.

President Lungu further cautioned the electorate against voting for candidates who did not respect them and did not listen to their advice which he said was an attribute of poor leadership.

Mr Lungu also implored PF cadres not to react violently once provoked by the opposition, but to instead forgive their enemies and report them to the police whom he commended for working hard in controlling political violence perpetrators the past week.

“In PF we love peace, so when you vote for PF, you are voting for peace. When UPND attacks you, refrain from fighting back lest you destroy the country,” he said.

Speaking at the same rally, former vice-president Enock Kavindele observed that the amount of development the PF Government had garnered in the last five years was unprecedented, citing the increase in number of public universities, health facilities as classic examples.

Christian Democratic Party leader Dan Pule said President Lungu was a God-fearing leader and thus implored all the Christians in the country to fast and pray for peace and the PF to win the general elections for 40 days starting on July 4, this year.

PF secretary-general Davies Chama, President Lungu’s campaign chairperson Samuel Mukupa, former Kabwe member of Parliament Austin Chewe and leaders of the 16 political parties which have backed the ruling party, besides Kafue adopted candidates, were among other speakers.

    • Its a sea of fellow patriots in unflinching spirit of solidarity with a unifying natural choice Chagwa Lungu. Those with highly raised spiritual antenna know that he is God’s choice for the common man divinely selected from among the common men. We the commoners support our very own. Let plutocrats continue to support each other too. In droves like ants we will cast for ECL.

LUNGU’S CAMP IS A CAMP OF CRIMINALS AND LOOTERS WHO JUST WANT TO REMAIN IN POWER SO THAT THEY CONTINUE SERVING THEMSELVES, AND NOT SERVING THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. LUNGU’S MAIN AGENDA IS LOOT OUR COUNTRY OF THE MUCH NEEDED RESOURCES. LUNGU IS LYING TO YOU WITH ALL THESE EMPTY PROMISES JUST BECAUSE HE WANTS YOUR VOTE. ONCE YOU VOTE FOR LUNGU ON 11 AUGUST, HE WILL FORGET ABOUT YOU AND YOU WILL REMAIN WALLOWING IN ABJECT POVERTY. IF IT COMES FROM PF, IT IS A LIE!

He says he’ll introduce free education from primary to university level…………one wonders where the money will come from to impliment thís policy since he doesn’t want corporations such as the Post to be paying their tax obligations.

  3. Lungu should tells us about the devt in his pocket. Within 16 months in office as President,Lungu has made K13million. With a salary of K700000 p.a how did Lungu make this kind of money? Lungu should tell the Voters where he got this kind of money if he did not steal public funds or engage in corrupt deals abusing his office as President. We know that Lungu stole a client’s money as a practicing lawyer. Once a thief always a thief. To protect his theft Lungu is trying to rig these elections in his favour. On 11th August 2016 ,Zambians will show Lungu the Exit Door of State House. The dice is cast. Wait and see!

  7. The PF slogans should have been pointing to how they will sort out high bank interest rates, inflation, electricity deficit, high unemployment levels, farming etc not sontapo. It is a very weak slogans to people who are very analytical. But may be they know that most of their voters are illiterate and can’t realistically and objectively analyse things. Slogans should be futuristic telling people what you are going to do for them for the current problems they are facing.This will have been giving us hope that they are on top of things and the problems we are currently facing will be a thing of the past.
    But to go to some one who is starving and tell them to sontapo instead of addressing his current hunger situation is vert tricky.

  8. I WORK ALONG KAFUE ROAD & I SAW BUSES, TRUCKS NAME THEM – FERRYING PEOPLE FROM ALL COMPOUNDS IN LUSAKA TO KAFUE. THIS IS A WRONG STRATEGY COZ THE CLOUD IS RECYCLED HENCE MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO KNOW YOUR ACTUAL STRENGTH. OTHER THAN THE RECYCLED CLOUD, LUNGU’S MESSAGE WAS ENCOURAGING, ESPECIALLY WHERE HE TALKED OF SUPPORTING LOCAL INDUSTRIES, PUTTING RAIL LINE FROM MUMBWA INTO KAFUE TO TRANSPORT RAW MATERIAL.

    • Truth of the matter is that UPND is transporting cadres too. Some of the people who attend UPND rallies also attend PF rallies in search of money, T-shirts and chitenge material. As to where these cadres belong and who they support, we shall only know after August 11. No need to argue over what we are not sure of.

  9. Putting up a lot of street lights with loading shedding . The street lights along great east road should have just been upgraded instead of redoing the whole. This is wastage no wonder we are in this situation. The Billboards along the great east road are so irritating. I was interviewing a street vendor at Munali round about on his views about the billboards and his response was ” We in the compound are starving but they are busy wasting money on the billboards.” So posters or no posters the opposition should not worry. Just allow PF to remove everything and let us see if those bill boards of theirs will go in the ballot box. Me as a voter and my family are already decided on whom I will vote for. For the ruling party I will looking at many indicators of how they have performed and…

  16. Unfortunately PF have neglected Luapula province a place that put them in power with 99% votes to winning 2011elections. No major developmental projects has taken place in Luapula province since PF came in power. I will not be surprised if pf fail to get more votes from Luapula province this time around.

    • @25 Mwiponta..I agree with you! PF especially during Sata’s time was cheated that by taking development to Southern and Western Provinces people would change their attitude towards them. They forgot some of their strongholds especially Luapula since they thought they already had it in their bag! The protest from Luapula and other PF strongholds manifested in the low turn out of voters. They did not want to vote UPND in the by-election but had lost trust in PF so they just stayed away!! Yes some developments have been done though people expected more! Look at the Kashikishi- Lunchinda Road?? Nothing done but building of new roads where people expected nothing!PF must really go and explain what they plan to do to the people that gave them 95% in 2011 without any campaign.

  18. @Mwiponta Mukabwela

    You are right, Luapula has been neglected for too long.
    Not even its own son of the soil, Chiluba did anything about it.
    But today, as we speak, my village in particular is boasting of unprecedented development including a new hospital, a new clinic, new trades school, new high school etc all built by Chinese. Thanks to this government. Further down the valley, the kingdom of Kazembe, has been upgraded to a district.

How can a serious government fail to complete tarring 70km only of pedicle road an important and economic link between Luapula and CB? What have they done on the Kashikishi – Lunchinda road? Has the declared Kazembe district been equipped with the requisite infrastructure?

  19. After transporting cadres from Lusaka and Chongwe.The pictures of the trucks loaded with cadres are available for all to see.PF is certainly headed for a resounding defeat.UTH and other hospitals will need to have all available Doctors on-call on August the 13th.Cases of high BP,Stroke will dramatically increase.I say 13th because ECL won’t accept the initial result just as RB did. Madam Irene Mambilima will be in a very tight spot on August 12.
    There is a big difference between Presidential By-elections and General Elections.The choice MP,Mayor or Ward councilor has a big influence on the votes that go to the Presidential Candidates.Historical results are there to show the correlation.

No money in our oockets,inflation now 21%, unemployment 85%, Kwacha from 5 to 12, cost of basic food stuffs 3 times high,12hrs load shedding, lawlessness,violance etc. Lungu came into govt from Chawama with nothing but now K23.7m rich . Lungu is asking for another 5 years to get richer while inpoverishing the masses favour. Once beaten twice shy. Lungu must go and in HH and his Team.

Its like the money spent on infrastructure or any project that benefit Zambians – THIS IS NOT ECL’S MONEY, ITS MONEY FROM ZAMBIANS DEVELOPING ZAMBIA. ECL’S JOB IS JUST TO ENSURE THINGS LIKE CORRUPTION, WHICH HE IS SUSPECTED TO BE A LARGE PART OF DOES NOT HAPPEN SO THAT ZAMBIANS CAN HAVE A BETTER COUNTRY AND LIVES FOR THEMSELVES, FAMILIES AND GRAND CHILDREN.
