President Edgar Lungu has challenged those alleging that the August 11 General election will be rigged to provide evidence.

President Lungu says some opposition leaders should not use speculations of rigging as an excuse if they lose election.

The President also says persistent allegations of rigging shows that the opposition leaders are not ready for the election.

He labelled those with unfounded allegations of election rigging as cry babies.

President Lungu was speaking in an interview with journalist at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport enroute to Uganda.

Meanwhile, Phoebe Sakala reports from Kampala that President Lungu will be in Uganda, to attend the 40th anniversary of the Entebbe operation.

This was a successful counter-terrorist hostage-rescue mission, carried out by the Israel Defense Forces, at Entebbe Airport in Uganda.

This hostage rescue happened on July 4, 1976, a week after an Air France plane with 248 passengers had been hijacked by Pro-Palestinian militants.

President Lungu, who has been invited by President Yoweri Museveni, will be among 6 other heads of state, who include Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyau.

Zambia’s High Commissioner to Tanzania, judith kapijimpanga, who is also accredited to Uganda, has confirmed this in an interview with ZNBC in Uganda.

According to a programme released in Kampala, the heads of state will later hold a closed door summit on counter-terrorism, and later issue a communiqué, after the commemorations.

The whole programme is expected to end at 17 hours.

President LUNGU is later expected to return to Zambia, the same day.

    • We are on good course if we incline towards growing this African unity first than being over subservient to the dictates of preponderant powers on everything. Africa’s modern leader ought to see the essence of building bridges shunning isolationism and actively embrace relationship building. We needs deeper interstate integration that should evolve at regional then continental level. Transformation comes from this unity beside opportunity to expand markets of partner states.

    • Zambians must watch every airstrip and every boarder. I suggest we have 50 people at each boarder and airstrip . Bankers that are patriot and care about if this treacherous person went to sell Zambia in exchange for campaign funds and rigging strategies please pledge your allegiance to our people even if you don’t like HH at least let this man not cheat his way to power. All Zambians must rise up and defend this country for the truth and fairness. I can’t even believe he went to say he will punish all those PF members wanting for political violence when we have people like Chongo and well known PF thugs that should be in jail by now if he meant what he was saying. The truth is there is no other way of winning other than violence or rigging. What this proven failure does not realize…

    • Why are you not showing Pictures of HH at the Mongu Mass Rally. Why are you not showing pictures of HH in Senanga today. Be fair and show that UPND has taken over Zambia. This election is almost over. UPND just need to go back to Copperbelt and put the final nail in the PF coffin.

    • THE PROBLEM IS NOT WITH LUNGU BUT WITH US COLLECTIVELY. IF YOU BOARD A BUS AND ALLOW A KNOWN MAD MAN TO DRIVE THE BUS AND YOU END UP IN A FATAL CRUSH, WHO WOULD BE TO BLAME. WE KNEW THE MAN HAD NO CAPACITY, YET WE ALLOWED HIM TO BECOME PRESIDENT. WE HAVE TOLERATED ALL THE N0NSENSI FROM HIM AND WE STILL WANT TO MAKE HIM PRESIDENT. PEOPLE WHO CONSIDER THEMSELVES NORMAL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT HIM. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH LEADERSHIP HAVE ALLOWED HIM TO USE THEIR PRAISE SONGS AND PICTURES WITH THE POPE FOR HIS CAMPAIGN. NORMAL CHRISTIAN PEOPLE OFFER THEMSELVES TO BE HIS DISCIPLES. DO YOU WONDER WHY WE HAVE SO MUCH POVERTY IN THE MIDIST OF SO MUCH WEALTH? BECAUSE WE ARE COLLECTIVELY STUP!D AND F00LISHI.

And for one to dethrone a reigning champion, one must win convincingly by 1st round knock out. Dununa iyeee…! A eee…? Dununa ieee…! ayeee….!!! Umo aka lila na kabili uno muku. Travel safely HECL.

  1. Everything sontapo is built on a big lie…..sontalling things that are fake as they are from choking kaloba or debt.

    Lungu is a thief. The only thing he can sontapo epo abombelepo is the K15 million he stole in one year.

    He is violent and manipulative. Opposition haven’t campaigned in most parts especially Lusaka cos of Lungu militia.

    Sontapo = Donchi Kubeba 90 day lies!!!!

  5. Post colonialism, Africa’s modern leader ought to see the essence of building bridges shunning isolationism and actively embrace relationship building. We needs deeper interstate integration that should evolve at regional then continental level not only at the discretion of preponderant powers. In Zambia we are very proud that we have a man in Nkwazi office who is a relationship leader. He does so with his people and fellow leaders beyond his borders. Edgar is direct, truthful, and open, consensus leader. He knows that there’s a distinct level of candor to drive home the point, that’s why he leads and applies his authority in a way that’s humane and sincere. Africa will only thrive if she can first build herself strong internal bonding on mutual interest.

    • @Senior Citizen, I respect your opinions. However, your analysis is deficient. ECL has not been forthcoming about how his wealth increased so dramatically in one year. Any serious Zambian citizen would never vote for such a person. If he is untruthful with his “own wealth”, how can he be about the state treasury?
      I would have expected you to talk about ECL’s 10-point program. Does he even have one? If we really serious about Zambia’s future, we must vote HH. Besides, we give him the chance to prove that he is not mere words. In otherwords, may be he is equally weak and incompent. The only way to test him is to see him in action through voting out ECL/PF on Aug 11, 2016. ECL is a disgrace in strategy, vision, and mission to address Zambia’s problems.

  7. Opposition must ensure the follow every step of the treacherous human being. He does not mean well for Zambia and this unusual relationship with Uganda is very suspicious. Out all the presidents, he is the only one who has befriended this dictator in Uganda. He probably plans to sneak the pre-mark ballot papers through Uganda. LUNGU DON’T THINK ZAMBIA IS YOURS. ITS FOR THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA AND PLEASE RESPECT THEM. EVEN GREAT LEADERS LIKE KK RESPECTED THEM – WHO ARE YOU TO TRY IMPOSE YOURSELF.I CALL UPON PATRIOT OP AND INTELLIGENCE UNITS TO TELL THE ZAMBIANS THE TRUTH EVEN BEFORE ELECTIONS OS THIS INCOMPETENT PRESIDENT IS REMOVED AND WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO A BETTER ZAMBIA

  8. MY OPINION PALL HAS SEEN LUNGU OFF THE RACE LIKE THE WAY IT WAS WITH RB. LUNGU JUST FINISHED THE 5 YEAR TERM OF OFFICE FOR PF. PF HAS BEEN UNDERSTOOD BY ALL ZAMBIANS THAT IT ALL WENT WITH LATE SATA (MHSRIP).
    LUNGU KNOWS THAT HE IS OUT OF THE GAME. IF ZNBC COULD BE RECORDING THE CROWDS WHERE THE UPND ARE AIRING THEIR CAMPAIGNS, ALL PF WILL CRY. MASSES OF MASSES ARE FOLLOWING UPND WHILE PF IS BUSSY INSULTING THEM. NO SENSIBLE SOUP IN THE MASSAGES FROM PF.
    BAUZE, YILEZHI, BABULELELE, BEBE, BALWEZE, BABULE, TELL THE PEOPLE WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO FOR THEM NOT FAILURES OF THE PAST. WE ARE TIRED WITH ZNBC FAKE REPORTS.

  15. Precicely what is being celebrated by African leaders such as ECL. Is it the bafoonnery of African leadership as exihibited by Field Marshall Idi Amin, who was even elected Chairman of the Organisation of African Unit, OR the superiority of western civilisation? What?

  17. I really dont even know why the celebrate this event in Uganda. This was the worst kind of humiliation to Amin (who was a muslim and died in exile in Saudi Arabia). He was supporting the hijackers. But the Israelis raided his airport without his permission. It is like Pakistan celebrating the US operation that killed Osama Bin Ladin whom they had haboured illegally in their country.

    Lungu should know what invitations to accept or decline. The mix of Lungu, Museveni and Israel (Timor Consulting) simply smacks of election rigging.

  19. We now know with certainty that Lungu has gone to Uganda to see Mu7 and compare notes on the Rigging Scheme having realised PF has lost massive support in its former strongholds in the CB & Northern Provinces. They have to re-examine their rigging plans given Lungu and PF’s loss of popularity. The Dubai Printer, Timor Consultants etc will at the meeting agree on the final rigging format. The good thing is that we all know Lungu’s rigging plans and besides Zambia is lucky in that Lungu’s Idol uncle Bob is having problems in Zimbabwe of his own. There are riots against Mugabe’s rule right now and Lungu better take note of what is going on next door. With a fragile economy Lungu will not be able to withstand Western Sanctions should he rig the elections. The writing is on the Wall!

  20. Show me Lungu and I will show you the most incompetent leader in Africa. A man with self-confessed zero vision. Iam happy that will be his last trip to Uganda because Zambians vote him out on August 11, 2016. Zambians deserve better. Absolutely better than ECL.

  22. I was in high school at the time of the Entebbe debacle. Soon after I bought and read a book on the events. That had nothing to do with an African success story but rather embarrassment of the of the worst kind.

    Idi Amin Dada had a good moment the year before when he hosted the OAU meeting in Kampala but his five years leading to the Entebbe issue was one of the worst in African governance seen in recent history.

    Let us promote African unity.If you have seen UPND is losing,dont’t start looking for stupid and silly exuses.If you are against Israel the be against America also,because America supports everything Israel does.Furthermore,the GOD tells the Israelites,”I shall bless those who befriend you,those who shelter you”.And so,Zambia under Lungu shall be Blessed by God for Befriending Israel.

  26. Lungu is on an Election Rigging Expedition. He Is trying to get Mu7 to print extra and premarked ballot papers in Uganda. Lungu is playing his last card by rigging these elections using a Ugandan Ballot printer. Something fishy is coming out of Uganda. Lets keep our eyes open. Lungu is mistaken to think Mu7 can rig these elections in Zambia for him. We will counter all his rigging manoeuvres come what may. Forward with HH,GBM &UPND.
