PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has condemned the United Party for National Development (UPND) for propagating violence and has asked traditional rulers to intervene.

Mr Lungu said it was a shame that the UPND had continued engaging in violence going by the latest report from Mazabuka.

He has since called on chiefs to educate the UPND or anyone engaging in violence on the importance of peace.

The Head of State said chiefs were custodians of peace and the land.

Mr Lungu was speaking yesterday when he met with chiefs from Chifunabuli District in Luapula Province.

The chiefs were Senior Chief Mwewa, chiefs Chitambo, Mwansakombe, Mulongwe, Mbulu and Kalasamukoso.
“When the opposition come, especially the UPND, welcome them but insist on peace. Preach peace to them,” President Lungu said.

Mr Lungu said engaging in violence was undemocratic.

He said the Patriotic Front (PF) was a democratic and peaceful party that believed in democracy.
President Lungu said that chiefs should take advantage of the UPND leaders’ visit to share with them the message of peace.

Earlier on Nsamba Island in Lunga District, President Lungu urged Zambians to vote for the PF to give the party an opportunity to complete its development programmes.

He said UNIP did its work in 27 years while MMD had 20 years.

The PF could not possibly complete its work in five years despite doing enough.

Mr Lungu also said people in Nsamba should vote for PF aspiring candidate for Lunga Constituency Emerine Kabanshi and all the PF aspiring councillors.

Meanwhile, Christian Democratic Party (CDP) president Danny Pule said President Lungu was the father of development.

Reverend Pule said Mr Lungu had steered the country to development.

At a rally in Chipili, President Lungu warned that he would not tolerate indiscipline in the PF by entertaining independent candidates using his name to gain votes.

Mr Lungu said the people who did not accept the adoption process and decided to stand as independent candidates should not use his name to campaign for themselves.

He said this during a rally in Chipili.

President Lungu said party members should accept the party procedures and wait for their turn to stand.

The President said he did not know the independent candidate for Chipili Constituency who was claiming to have the President’s blessings.

The PF candidate for Chipili is Home Affairs Minister Davies Mwila.

An independent candidate, Jewis Chabi has printed T-shirts claiming that he is a PF candidate.

“I don’t know that man, my candidate is Davies Mwila. How can I work with someone who doesn’t want to work with the party?” President Lungu asked.

He reiterated that it was easier to work with PF candidates because they shared the same vision.
In Chifunabuli, Mr Lungu said he only recognised Mecha Ponde who the PF adopted and not the independent who was claiming to have been adopted.

The Head of State said people should learn to wait for their turn and not rush to defy the party.

  1. Wow, my president! You can talk about violence. What a surprise! I thought you were blind to violence and you cannot see anything violent happening because the PF are everywhere killing and hurting people. The know PF, Cham, Kaizer Zulu, Chongu, etc are shooting people at gun point. PF cadres are everywhere bullying others. in fact even your Luapula trip is meant to frustrate UPND from going to the area.

    • Who was left looking after our patients when all nurses line up to have a glimpse of the new dictator in making

    • Are UPND leaders planning a “Kamikaze” mission on selves post elections? I ask because time and again we hear UPND leaders and blogging cadres loudly saying, should they lose the 11th August elections, Zambia will be in mayhem turning into a river of blood. Note, only if they lose the forthcoming elections. Are they scheming a mass succide project among its leadership rank and file in protest of results. If it’s meant to coerce voters into submission, then it’s a brainless kamikaze project. Maybe family members should start asking for wills and bank accounts.

    • OOH MY God, Lord come and help us, please someone tell this man was misquoted!!

      Do we really have a president, a commander in chief in this our land??

      Iam maulessi!!

    • Chakolwa Chagwa is the most useless, most inept, most useless President that Zambia will ever have. He has propagated ritual murders, xenophobic attacks and political violence in Zambia. Zambia is now truly a failed banana republic due to Chakolwa’s incompetence and violence.
      #ChagwaMustFall
      #PFmustGo
      #PF Zwaa!

    • INSANITY AT ITS BEST! DOES LUNGU UNDERSTAND HIMSELF? LUNGU HAS NO MORALS FOR HIM TO CONDEMN UPND FOR THE VERY VIOLENCE WHICH HE HAS INTRODUCED IN OUR COUNTRY AND HE IS PERPETRATING IT EVERYDAY. EPILEPSY AND HIV/AIDS HAVE REALLY RAVAGED THE BRAINS OF THIS GUY. LUNGU SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF PRESIDENCY. LUNGU’S MENTAL INSTABILITY IS DANGEROUS TO ZAMBIA BECAUSE HE WILL BE MAKING WRONG DECISIONS FOR OUR COUNTRY. THIS CRIMINAL SHOULD JUST BE BOOTED OUT THIS AUGUST. VOTE FOR HH. VOTE FOR UPND.

    • Conclusion, I think Lungu chipuba, He Is S.t.u.p.i.d, never in the history of Zambian have we had such.

  2. 1 Timothy 3 (NIV) Here is a trustworthy saying: whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. 2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full[a] respect. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgement as the devil. 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.

    • FROM THIS STATEMENT ONE CANNOT HELP BUT CONCLUDE THAT E.C. LUNGU IS SUFFERING FROM SENILE DEMENTIA DUE TO EPILEPSY. HOW ELSE ONE CAN EXPLAIN THE ABOVE ABSURD WILD CLAIM? DOES LUNGU KNOW WHAT HE TALKS ABOUT? I VERY MUCH DOUBT! I THINK HE IS SICK IN THE HEAD AND IT’S DANGEROUSLY RISKY TO HAVE SUCH A PERSON FOR A HEAD OF STATE.

  3. It looks like he didn’t hear of the killing of a young man at UNZA. That yet again another young life has been lost to political violence. He would also have used the opportunity to talk about the gruesome abuse of a young woman whose video is circulating on social media. Or the police have not told him.

    • Evidence that he is the most idi0tic and incompetent president of the millennium Edgar chakolwa Kaloba Wrungu what kind of icamba do you smoke now this tea car ra is inciting is fellow clueless,useless,heartless,ruthless,brainless,directionless,needless and drunkards to terrorising the people because their Tea car ra in state house will blame the opposition.

  4. When its pathetic fools at fault,you dont condemn them.You actually clap for them. Hypocrisy is bad mudala.

  5. Letter to the ICC, EU, USA, SADC, AU, COMESA:

    How can there be free and fair election when Lungu:
    1. is killing opposition supporters and celebrates the deaths by taunting the opposition
    2. campaigns on and promotes the unprecedented PF violence and killing machine
    3. preventing opposition campaigning by brutality
    4. ordering Police not to protect opposition who are killed by PF
    5. ordering public media not to cover the opposition
    6. using State resources he lies that his party PF are the ones that funded and constructed infrastructure projects

    • @ 5 Chalipi, you can choose to hide your now protruding ignorance. Go ask Laila Odinga, Morgan Changirai, Amad Chalabi how far ignorance and laziness to understand international relations works. When are you going to intervene in the American primary campaign chaos worser than the Zambian campaigns? Attend Trump’s rallies that even involve grabbing of police ifyanso to take the man down. Have you seen them call you in? When Rwanda was burning, do you know the evacuation planes had no space for you? Shame you think they are your redeemer.

    • That’s the *****cy of Zambians like you, @Senior Citizen. Just because the American election is chaotic or there are powercuts in Zimbabwe does not mean that Zambians should suffer mediocre leadership under PF. Zambians deserve better than they are getting under Chakolwa Chagwa.

  6. Lungu is a bad President. He should have the decency to send his condolences to the parents of the student murdered by his PF thugs at UNZA. Lungu is a thief, a thug and a hypocrite. This visionless man is the worst President in Zambia since 1964. Lungu is a threat to national security and the economic devt of Zambia. Apart from now being K23.7million rich Lungu has nothing else to show except violence and thuggish behaviour. While pretending to preach peace Lungu is busy rigging these elections using violent means. On 11th August lets turn out in big numbers to vote out this village tyrant and heartless dictator. Forward with HH,GBM & UPND.

  7. UPND has been around a long time participating in peaceful elections. Now this man from Chawama comes on the scene & suddenly UPND has become a violent party. What has happened sir?????

    • Jitan stop lying you sons/daughters of LUCIFER! It was UPND under HH who coined the “MAPATIZYA FORMULA” which was the beginning of political violence in this country. Your little demigod hh chose red as colour of his party deliberately to suit his bloody agenda of mayhem.
      Wait for 14th August when you would have lost elections and see if they will be any mayhem! The same police you are insulting will arrest you and send you and the goon of a leader to Mukobeko. Mukeshe mwembulwa mano mwee!

    • Mapatizya was a formula for protecting ballot boxes not attacking innoncent people,and mazoka was the UPND president your hate and envy for HH will kill you.To the contrary the eventor of violence was your shikulu CNP,in UNIP he was the enforcer,MMD manager ,PF supreme commandant.Do talk about things you don’t understand.

  8. Is this stupid man normal,who are killing people. Who are beating school children. His cadres are doing all this but he can’t say anything. So who is he trying to fool, he thinks people are not seeing what his cadres are doing. Foolish and stupid lungu very soon you will regret all this. You will regret of leaving chawama.

  9. This president is an embarrassment to the Zambian and humanity at large . Given the high levels of violence that is even extending to citizen outside politics to start committing barbaric acts, It is expected that any normal leader can show leadership by denouncing violence irrespective of the people involved . He will leave a very bad legacy . True is a dictator in the making

    • The desperation of the Chuundu Chaitwa party to unseat a performing government is what is truly embarrassing. We will “dununa you reverse”, you won’t even understand what hit you!
      We know you are very loud on social media but we will give you a sound thumping!
      PFS’ strategy is totally intact and we are not busy blogging but we are in the field talking to members of our communities, families and the abandoned opposition members of Mumba, Sampa and Mulongoti.
      Some are actually making deals with us that they will vote for their MP but presidential is only ECL!
      VIVA ECL VIVA, VIVA PF VIVA!

  10. Zambians who elected Lungu are f00ls. This man has seen UPND cadres killed day in and day out but he has never condemned the killing. Is it because he likes shedding blood to stay in power or what? He has brought so much violence in Zambia and one day he shall account for his violence.

    • Airport cabinet, you are the f00l for supporting an all time loser. Disrespecting us the voters won’t give hh & Chilufumo gbm more votes. The 2 rich, greed and pompous loud months are not what Zambians need.
      Simple sore losers is what UPND is made up of!
      DUNUNA REVERSE! We will teach you the lesson of a century. Under 5 will cry even more bitterly while he tries to hang on to UPND!

  11. This man thinks he is just the president of PF and not the entire Zambia. Why cant he speak against violence for all Zambians period. 2 people have been murdered for wearing UPND shirts and he has the decency to go and point fingers at the UPND??!! Shame oh him!!!

    • I am begging you to reconsider your position, today it is someone else’s child/relative, tomorrow, it will be yours. is it worth it really??

  12. The Presido is right. No violence should be tolerated. Its sad that the opposition leaders are rarely talking against violence. As promised Mr Presido, please let the police use a bit more of some toughness. Enough is enough. Just yesterday four (4) suspects were caught for murdering a PF campaign organiser in Chongwe. No opposition has condemned this. I wont be surprised to hear that they confess to being UPND members. Viva ECL, Viva PF.

  13. KK Airport Cabinet – All we need is to compete in ideas about who you think is the best president and no insults. You cannot call the Zambians that voted for Lungu as fools. It takes a fool to recognise another fool. stop that abusive language if you don’t have what to say.
    President lungu is not the one who is beating people no wonder he is talking about violence. secondly president lungu is not a ng’anga to guess that someone will be beaten or to guess who has beaten who, point of correction to all you guys who are criticizing Lungu, if you are a frustrated UPND then just go to hell man

  14. PF CADRE KILLS UNZA STUDENT FOR PUTTING ON A UPND T-SHIRT, now this man can’t even condemn the murdering of an innocent fourth year student and all he is doing is talking about UPND whose cadres are being beaten and killed. Ati Humbleness.

  15. POLICE in Ndola last Friday beat up unruly PF cadres who tried to disrupt UPND running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba’s campaign rally. And the PF cadres burnt a shop belonging to UPND Pamodzi ward youth chairman Felix Kombe after former vice-president Dr Guy Scott addressed a rally. The cadres were angered after noting that GBM had managed to pull a huge crowd to his rally in Ndola at Main Masala. They then mobilised and took to the street to challenge their UPND rivals. But police quickly moved in to restrain the ruling party cadres from attacking their rivals. “Your friends are having a meeting and you can’t come here to start making noise. Don’t cross the road, or we will beat you,” an officer said to the slogan chanting PF cadres who kept moving forward. When the PF cadres crossed the…

  16. Nurses do not work like time which never stops for even an echo watch shall at one time stop working. These nurses also have time for tea just like you have tie to write. Its not like they are glued to the patients. Tell you what, THERE COMES A TIME WHEN YOUR IN LAW MAY ENTER YOUR BEDROOM WITHOUT KNOCKING.

  17. When the PF cadres crossed the road to where the UPND were having a meeting, the riot police officers beat them up and arrested four in the process. “The problem we are having is that these cadres (PF) have become so notorious and want to take the law into their own hands. This is because when we arrest them, they are quickly released. We have come up with a plan to just hammer them so that by the time they are set free, they will have something to remember. There is a breakdown of law in the country,” a police officer said. Meanwhile, Kombe complained that the PF cadres burnt his shop for no reason. “I run a shop at Overspill Market. 15 sowing machines were burnt, uniforms for pupils at Twatasha, suits for customers and other property valued at K33,350. For me a poor man, my life is lost…

  18. Edgar must be a very evil Man. How could he choose to keep quiet when innocent women are undressed in public by his cadres, violence pertpetrated by PF cadres this time around is unprecedented. Killings going on, cadres are above the Law in zambia, they defy traffic rules beat people with impunity and the sole called president does not say anything. I think he is the worst candidate on all the seven standing, better Nawakwi if you do not want the “two rich men”. And some people say christians for Lungu, my foot.

  19. Lungu you have failed to rule the country hence the violence everywhere. You a pretender who can only see a speck in someone’s eye and don’t see a log in your eye. What does it profit a man to gain the world and lose his soul? We are praying enough is enough.

  20. HH WILL NEVER RULE THIS COUNTRY AND YOU TONGAS INSULTING THE PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU YOU WILL SEE ON 11TH AUGUST. HH IS A SATANIST NO VOTE.

    • So what do you say about me a non Tonga who shouts back to you the fact that Lungu is a thief….he stole K15 million and intends to steal K100 million if given a chance.

  21. In Zambian politics, when a politician says this is white, he means it is black and vice versa. Things like violence happening but they say all is well. He does something and accuses the others. Lets has shame bane, we are still human beings even if its politics.

  22. Ba Guy scott nabakota kwati nikolwe (Baboon). No wonder HH sais that he is the most stupid white man he has ever come across

  23. ZAMBIA IS NOW A COUNTRY WHICH ALLOWS VIOLENCE AND THE PRESIDENT LOOKS ON:
    POLICE say they have made headway in investigations to arrest perpetrators of gender -based violence against a Kafue woman.

    And Zambia’s Ambassador to Sweden Reverend Edith Mutale says the video clip doing the rounds on social media depicting a Kafue woman, only identified as Nagaad Saad, being brutalised and stripped naked by men has left an extremely bitter taste in her mouth.

    Meanwhile, the NonGovernmental Organisation Coordinating Council has petitioned police to ensure those behind the act are arrested.

    A gruesome video of photo-taking men brutalising and sexually assaulting a weak and eventually unconscious Saad has gone viral on social media, sparking anger among Zambians, some of whom have created…

  24. Lungu is a parent and he should condem this kind of behaviour in the country. What kind of president are Zambians supporting? The man is useless and does not care if his people are brutalised, killed and undressed in public

  25. Lungu is a parent and he should condem this kind of behaviour in the country. What kind of president are Zambians supporting? The man is useless and does not care if his people are brutalised, killed and undressed in public and he doesn’t even rebuke the violence among his people – what kind of a leader are you voting in to power?

  26. How many PF cadres who has killed so far due to political stability? So you *****s thinks that ECL is happy about this? To ECL or any well thinking Zambian whether it is PF or UPND this is not right you people, stop blaming the President.
