I will focus on developing areas where I will be voted for-President Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has charged that the PF government will prioritise development in areas where it will amass good votes if re-elected into office.

President Lungu said the party has attempted to take development to all areas of Zambia in its first term on office but that this has disadvantaged some areas where the party is popular.

He said in his four and half years in power, the party has initiated development even in areas where it lost because it believes in the spirit off One Zambia, One Nation.

President Lungu was speaking on Tuesday when he addressed a rally in Mungwi where he was drumming up support for PF Malole Constituency candidate Christopher Yaluma and councillors standing on the PF ticker.

“In all fairness, we have to revisit that policy and now focus on areas where we are supported. We should first develop Mungwi and Northern Province because you people have supported us through out. It is a pity that you have not benefitted from your support for the PF but now this has to change,” Mr Lungu said.

He promised that he will personally ensure that the development of Mungwi becomes a top priority if he is re-elected in next month’s elections.

And addressing a second rally at President’s Park in Kasama Central, President Lungu promised to build a modern Stadium and a University in Kasama

President Lungu also promised that Kasama General Hospital will undergo massive renovations and upgrade if he is re-elected into office.

He also urged the residents of Kasama Central to vote for PF Parliamentary candidate Kelvin Sampa because he has been trying to provide leadership for the people of Kasama for a long time.

President Lungu also took a swipe at former Kasama Central MP Geoffrey Mwamba who is also UPND presidential running mate.
He said Mr Mwamba is only interesting in getting to power in order to accumulate personal wealth.

President Lungu said Mr Mwamba is supporting the UPND because has an ambition of becoming Republican President.

He said Mr Mwamba is plotting to take over the presidency of the UPND from Mr Hichilema if he loses the August elections.

President Lungu claimed that Mr Mwaba refused from Michael Sata’s administration because the late President Sata knew and confronted him about it.

  1. LUNGU is freezing cold with fear of losing the forth-coming ELECTIONS. ZAMBIANS HAVE ALREADY MADE UP THEIR MIND TO VOTE FOR CHANGE BY VOTING FOR HH AND THE UPND TEAM. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF CORRUPTION IN OUR COUNTRY. LUNGU HAS LOOTED AND DESTROYED OUR COUNTRY. LUNGU HAS SOLD ZAMBIA TO INTERNATIONAL CRIMINALS. NOW IS TIME FOR ZAMBIA TO BE SERIOUS AND VOTE FOR A GOVERNMENT THAT CAN BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ALL ITS GOVERNANCE ACTIVITIES. THE UPND GOVERNMENT CAN BE TRUSTED FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE. HH CAN BE TRUSTED TO BE A LEADER WHOSE INTEREST IS TO MAKE ZAMBIA A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN.

    • The office of the president is an office for ALL ZAMBIANS even those who will not vote for Vodiga Rungu.
      This f00l Vodiga Rungu has just hammered the last nail in the coffin of his useless political career.

    • When we tell you that this Lazy Bum is too dull and ever drunk..people think its an insult…he thinks he recklessly borrowing money for overpriced projects in PF’s name.

    • IT IS FOR THIS REASON THAT LUNGU MUST BE VOTED OUT. WHEN A PRESIDENT IS ELECTED HE BECOMES A PRESIDENT FOR ALL ZAMBIANS: THOSE WHO VOTED FOR HIM, THOSE WHO DID NOT VOTE FOR HIM AND THOSE WHO DID NOT VOTE AT ALL. HIS POSITION MEANS THAT, IN THE AREAS WHERE HE WILL GET LESS VOTES, HE WILL NOT CARE FOR THOSE WHO WILL HAVE VOTED FOR HIM. THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE DEVELOPMENT FOR ALL, IS TO GIVE ZERO VOTE TO PF EVERYWHERE. WE NEED A PRESIDENT WHO WILL BE THERE FOR ALL. VOTE WISELY.

    • Talking and posting comments is a waste of time. Zambians have already decided to vote PF and ECL. Watch this space.

    • In civilized societies iit is not up to the president to develop regions. Instead, it’s the responsibility of elected represented tatives. Pa Zambia kuwayawaya fye.

    • Zambians have noticed. And considering that basic infrastructure such as the dual carriageways between Ndola and Kitwe, and Kitwe and Chingola, cannot be completed in 5 years of PF being in govt, the Copperbelters have nothing to lose by voting out Chakolwa. Chakolwa has concentrated on developing Chawama alone and now we will see if he will return to State House.

    • Some kind of blackmail?..Which development is he going to bring to the voter when he has failed totally, the litmus test of 18 months…tell him we are voting for you sir, and do the real dununa for him to get back to Chawama…such an alcoholic guy!!!

    • At least it is good you have notified us that there is no One Zambia One Nation if you win by rigging.

  2. Thank God Lungu will be voted out of power, what kind of a leader thinks like that?! Why cant you develop the whole country?

    You are very divisive Mr president, dont talk as if you are in a bar, you are running a country.

  3. Lungu very visionless as usual. Its not PF or Lungu money but its for all Zambians and therefore, development is for every Zambian.

    Lungu MUST GO on 11~8 come rain and sunshine.
    The Skeleton Key

  4. Ensure that you also collect less tax in areas you are not supported too. eg North Western province coz if you had ploughed back even just 5% of what you collect from there … the story would have been different and NW would have been sparkling. this is why your ‘crawling mate’ failed to address a meaningful crowd there on her recent visit…. Am sure your turn to be embarrassed when you visit is waiting!!

    • Government does not collect enough taxes from the mines dunderhead iwe but the mines provide about 70 percent of foreign exchange earnings. Places like Nakonde, Kasumbalesa and Chirundu borders are areas where government collect a lot of money. Otherwise the mines contribute less than 3 percent in taxes. Dont just yap namazai

    • @Popolyongo

      Yuo are the dunderhead, Have you seen North Western before the mines invested and after? All those businesses, banks, shopping malls, traders that have set up business there becoz of the mines paying taxes and employing people. Dont just look at the mines alone but the effect. You can compare the economic contribution of North Western now to small Kasumbalesa and Nakonde

    • @ Popolyongo….. the activities of mines provide what is known as a multiplier effect on the economy as the bulk of the same money collected at the same border points you have mentioned is as a result of the imports these mine do for goods and equipment needed to support mining operations (including Kasumbalesa which handles cargo for mining operations in Katanga)…. that’s lesson No.1 for you…

      Lesson 2: I won’t utter any derogatory statement against you in retaliation as I respect you as a human being who deserves to issue any statement even from a misinformed point of view.

    • This gentleman was talking about mines contribution to the national treasury. Yes, i know there is multiplier effect but this notion of saying NWP is contributing enormously to the national treasury is far from the truth as the Development Agreements these new mines have signed with government shields them from paying most of the taxes. I hope you are also aware that the tax band is K3000 and most mall owners dont pay their workers that much

    • Taxes is not only corporate tax, by the way even that, the largest single corporate tax payer, the only copper mine paying it is in NW…GRZ collects most tax from PAYE, not import duty as assumed by Popolyongo

    • Selfsame lazy bu3ms go to the extractive industries transparency reports, it will show you the tax contribution per mine,FQML leads the list. I am in the diaspora yet I know.Just a note, another report has revealed that Zambia lost about $28B from year 19 to 200 through under invoicing.Find the report online.No need of giving data, as for the GDP contribution of mines, all the data is there only that lazy bu3ms and empty tins sweep the data under the carpet.

      I thank you very much

    • Nice Debate country men……. we need to be receptive to divergent views and as we agree to disagree.
      Good points being raised and just understand where I am coming from, am sure we have all gone through the data on taxes and contributions that these mines make to national treasury in addition to the multiplier effects that come with this industry…..

      My colleague Popolyongo…… No hard feelings-your views are highly valued

    • @Popolyongo, you are a scumbag for using the derogatory term “namazai”. You must be Chimbwili or Satan. May your troubled tribal soul rot in hell.

  5. Ya! How can a Head of State say such things? Develop only areas that vote for you? That is why ECL is a failed project. This is too little too late. Kuyabebele!

    • And on Sunday 24 July 2016 this same man will HOLD A BIBLE IN HIS HAND KNEEL DOWN AND PRETEND TO PRAY FOR PEACE AND UNITY. Oh how we mock GOD.

  6. If he can’t develop areas which wont vote for him, he should as well stop taxing those who won’t vote him so that they use their money in their areas

    • Zambians need to wake up and stand up to these threats and misinformation; Lazy Lungu has no right to talk to them like that!!

    • Iwe buka1a bobe why do you forget easily? Isnt it the same HH who has made Kopala to be the way it is due to his underhand method in sell of mines

  7. He is an *****!Does he even know what democracy is? You will pay back what you have stolen together with your pamafi comrades after august 11…VIVA UPND,VIVA HH 2016

  8. Doesn’t sound so good but I am sure it was just politics meant to benefit the local audience.

  9. Lungu is such a shame. He does not understand the Role and Responsibilty of a State President. Once u are elected State President and sworn in u become President for all including those who did not vote or vote for you. The govt u form is by the people and for the people and not for PF supporters only. Even tax revenue is collected from the whole country so u cannot discriminate developing areas on the basis of your political strongholds. This divisive message should not be coming from Lungu as the sitting head of state. Lungu is destroying the One Zambia One Nation motto. This visionless and divisive Lungu must go. Lets elect a sober and hardworking HH as President on 11th August. HH will make Zambia proud!

    • These people are incapable of sober campaigning…all they talk about is how they will spend borrowed money..no talk of how they will pay for it!!

  10. We are waiting for 11th August, 2016 so that we bring him back, we will massively vote for him so that he can sweep the polls with the PF Party. This government deserve the second term in office, no doubt about it. We have no reason to remove this government from power unless some illusioned misguided individuals but they will not successed VIVA PF and ECL, us the majority are behind you Mr President.

  11. The man is panicking. After realising that the Bemba’s have not been happy with the raw deal they have received from Jameson and being dribbled over the running mate despite the massive support he received last year in January. He has been led into the ditch by Ruphiah Banda by advising him to systematically kick out the Bembas from PF. Imagine in June this year the Chief Mpepo of Mpika went to an extent of Inviting HH and his team to hold their rally at his palace in the wake of an impending disruption of their rally by PF thugs. The Paramount Chief Chitimukula even refused to attend the Ncwala ceremony last year as part of his displeasure of Jameson’s divide and rule tactics among the chiefs in Northern and Muchinga provinces. In April 2016 the Mwata Kazembe told Miles Sampa that the…

  12. Mr President, Zambians have freedom to choose who they want to be their leader, it could be you. Lets agree to disagree, and that is normal in life.
    But what I find disturbing is your assertion that if the majority picks you as a president, you would want to be a PF president and not a Zambian President.
    All areas should be developed equally, when people are paying taxes, i don t think there is priority to have PF members pay taxes first before others, and yet that tax payers money will be used to pay back the loans for those infrastructure projects.
    I think this is wrong thinking, which is meant to get political points, its not fair.

  13. In April 2016 MWATA Kazembe, the senior chief of the Lunda people of Mwansabombwe said the Patriotic Front had turned its back on him despite giving the party a lot of support when it was in the opposition. And Mwata Kazembe says he was not happy that Zambians have continued to wallow in abject poverty despite giving the PF massive votes in 2011 to oust the MMD out of power. Meanwhile, Mwata Kazembe urged Democratic Front leader Miles Sampa not to give up his quest to become president of Zambia. He explained that no political party in the country had enjoyed the support he gave to the ruling party especially in 2006 when the party was introduced in his chiefdom, adding that the PF’s ingratitude to him was frustrating.

    • @15,16 Analyst, this actually is the issue! The PF has used the people of Luapula as door mats or ladders to get to power and forget them thereafter! If we look at the fact that PF had been getting support from that province from as early 2006 or a bit earlier than that when Sata was being called all sorts of names and Sata got 95% of votes in 2011 without campaigning there! Then compare the dismal development done there with what he has done in a place where PF has been consistently rejected!! When turnout was low in so called “PF strongholds” in Jan’15 is because people were dissappointed with PF but could not vote for the UPND as they don’t believe in it. However, Lungu did not need to say this because in conventional wisdom there are always unwritten rules “he who pays the piper…

  14. If there is piece of land that has to be removed from Zambia its Tongaland these tribalist are ungrateful and the don’t need a fare share of cake.

  15. dont listen to him, chingola gave him a 100% vote but no development and miners have been neglected

  16. I am a PF supporter and I am ashamed to hear my President said this. He was either misquoted or it was a slip of a tounge. What President Lungu meant to say was that as a humble and Christian President of Zambia he will develop all areas and improve the welfare of all Zambians. Any impression given to the contrary is regretted. Sonta epomwabomba!

    • Mwape, I have been tempted to think it’s a misquote too. And also that the article may have been selective.

      Unfortunately, there is stuff in there that leaves one agog. Yes, it’s nice to build a stadium, but is that really a priority over agriculture, tourism, investment or industry that would empower people though jobs and enterprise. He could easily have talked about education as well, granted he mentioned health – the hospital in Kasama.

      He and his team should research each area and point at specifics to rejuvenate it and improve people’s lives.

    • Don’t lie you rodent you’re UPND and the president was very right to say what he said…..even in a home you punish the regretful children or dependents. We shall teacher the opposition stronghold by giving them just average development and all the resources has to go to PF strongholds period.

  17. The sitting President clearly telling you that he will divide the country if re-elected?!? Zambians, are you listening?

    • TRUE. ALL WHAT LUNGU WANTS IS TO DIVIDE AND DESTROY ZAMBIA. ZAMBIANS SHOULD FORGET ABOUT A UNITED ZAMBIA FOR AS LONG AS LUNGU REMAINS PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT ZAMBIANS WILL ALWAYS REMAIN ZAMBIANS COMPOSED OF THE 73 TRIBES. NOW IS THE TIME WE NEED LEADERS LIKE HH, GBM AND CANISIUS BANDA WHO HAVE A PASSION TO UNITE AND DEVELOP OUR COUNTRY ONCE AGAIN. VOTE FOR HH. VOTE FOR UPND.

  18. This makes for sad reading. This is school play yard stuff, but sadly from a sitting President. How did we get here?

    Just goes to show that he lacks a decent campaign team or he does not listen contrary to what the PF claims.

    Perhaps not surprising considering the caliber of people he dines with: Kambwili; Mumbi Phiri; Frank something. Need I go on. There is little coming from Lady Inonge as well.

    And what was all that time wasting on GBM? Mr. President please stay on cue. Ooh sorry I forgot the teleprompter was not working.

    Each part of the country has to be invested in based on a solid strategy to harness its competitive advantage in agriculture and fishery, tourism, mining, industry etc.

    My God we are in trouble.

  19. Satanism. why move around with mock coffins after calling for prayers.
    It also sounds like he doesn’t believe in one Zambia, one nation if his going to prioritise development in areas where he will amass good votes if re-elected into office.

    • For sure they cannot hide for long before their true colours come out, now they just one to develop a few provinces at the expense of the other equally important areas. PF has run out of ideas and it is their time to be on the sidelines.

  20. HH is worse on this, he says it’s time for Tongas to rule and get empowered. He says it whenever he is with with fellow Tongas. HH cannot not be the right person if people want meaningful change. Let’s vote Lungu now and properly search for a proper successor in 2021. We cannot jump from one dictator to another.

  21. Someone mentioned ‘Black Friday’ and all the clergy in Zambia were lining up to call him a Satanist. Now the PF cadres are moving around with coffins. Where are the bishops?

  22. Objectively, HH deserves my vote. He is more ‘presidential’ in many ways than my current outgoing president.

  23. Sydney msenga dull mind the debt has reached $ 8 billion you are saying we look for successor in 2021. If H.H fails in 5 years will fire him also the way will do to Lungu next month.

  24. Why should we vote for a Tonga party in the name of UPND?This tribe party can divide zambia and chase other tribes from companies n govt.They behave badly when it comes to wako ni wako.I can’t waste my vote on tribe party(UPND).For some tongas it’s time for them to rule.They don’t care even if govt gave them everything but will still vote 4 HH.what a selfish pipo on planet?We hear them saying we are jst using GBM to get votes from bembas.these chaps hates bemba speaking pipo.they must change if they want to win.HH should resign to avoid these tribal politics.he brought tribal politics coz he came tru tribal politics.

  25. And you calls yourself President of the county. U are fired my friend. We need a President regardless of who voted.

  26. If I were President, I would do just that. Priotize areas that appreciate development. Western and southern provinces have seen more developments than Luapula and Copperblet yet Lungu and Sata got the least votes in these areas.
    Western d we shall province have a VP and that damn good road across the plains and we shall see how greatful they are after 11 August.

    • @29,Mulalansala that is the point! When HH and others call Lungu “clueless” and Sata “Chimbwi no Plan” is partly bcoz of their poor tactics in allocating and executing development projects to meet voter expectations! What Lungu has divulged need not be said as it attracts an ire of expected criticism when actually that is a natural “unwritten rule” in African politics and common human behavior! You do not need to say it but just do it quietly and people will appreciate you back and you go back to ask for votes! Action speaks louder words!! In fact PF would do well to do more work in NW where money and employment is coming from and their more diversity in thinking than concentrate in areas where people hate others based on ethnicity regardless of how good they do!

  27. As you plan to only develop the so-called PF strongholds bwana president also devise a system where you can only collect taxes from the same areas.
    An elected president is president for all.
    Luckily,you or on your last stint with missions Zambia.

  28. He thinks it’s his money. Anyay, his chances of winning are getting slimmer by the day, thats why he’s resorting to desperate measures.

    HH & GBM will be put under house arrest during elections, a carbon copy of Ugandan Museveni’s Methodology.

  29. The worst ***** i have ever come across on earth. People lets vote out this ***** this kind of thinking is so backward.

  30. …mawe mawe….did he really say as title depicts..??…I advice him to withdraw and apologise at his next rally….
    ….do these people really go for a rally or for free concert…in 2011 RB painted the whole country blue…nearly all the trees along the roads had either a chitenge or MMDEAD sticker..

  31. I think umuntu tatasha…………We have to give credit were it is due and not just critising even were things are done well.
    The PF goverment has done so well and i dont think there is need to change Government when we have seen such development going own.

  32. HH has seen the writing on the wall. Progressive Zambians are not interested in his lies. He has run out of ideas because PF’s robust development agenda has pre-emptied his bid for presidency. So what does he do? He insists on a useless debate as a filler as his imminent defeat approaches. All that he says he will do, PF has either done or is being done. SONTAPO!

  33. When HH and others call Lungu “clueless” and Sata “Chimbwi no Plan” is partly bcoz of their poor tactics in allocating and executing development projects to meet voter expectations! What Lungu has divulged need not be said as it attracts an ire of expected criticism when actually that is a natural “unwritten rule” in African politics and common human behavior! You do not need to say it but just do it quietly and people will appreciate you back when you go back to ask for votes! Action speaks louder words!! In fact PF would do well to do more work in NW where money,employment are coming from,their more diversity in thinking than concentrate in areas where people hate others based on ethnicity regardless of how much good they do!There just do basic development and transform areas where they…

    • ..continued..areas where they believe in your manifesto and policies! The apathy seen in PF strongholds in January 2015 is because people wondered what the party they voted for had done for them whilst where they concentrated they could not be voted because they believe in one person and one party regardless of work done and reach out from others!

  34. hh is dull he is promising the moon to the people and is de-campaigning himself by telling people to vote no in the referendum he knows that if he tells people to vote yes he will put to task if he wins he is a crook. don’t trust this guy.EDGAR WINS ON 11 AUGUST.

  35. Just wondering how many universities will be in northern Zambia, while others have non, not even in promissory note.

  36. Such short-sighted leadership. These are the kind of leaders that polarise societies. Zambians, watch out!

  37. You fools let people who will vote for him enjoy and will also enjoy animals from HH
    ECL is wining this elections as no one will vote for tonganyoko useless tribe

  38. Is the headline true….LT likes misquoting sometimes……. I really find it difficulty to believe that the president would issue or say such a statement.

  39. LUNGU’S STRONGHOLD WILL BE MONZE AND CHIPATA WHICH WILL GIVE HIM 10 VOTES EACH. OH SHAME A JAMESON. ENDANI KU CHAWAMA MUKAMWE KACHASU BABA. NA KAFUMO KAONEKA KUTI NIKA KACHASU.

  40. No your Excellency we cannot afford to make such statements like tribal HH. If you were not misquoted, kindly take that back. Take development everywhere. Kindly sack whoever misled you otherwise your vote is secured. You are doing fine. Remember one Zambia, one Nation. Viva ECL! Abash HH.

  41. These comments attributed to ECL are worrying, although other presidents have uttered similar sentiments. It just goes to show that a law degree does not make one any wiser about governance issues as president. It is also shocking to hear that ECL is surprised about the lack of development in Bemba land. Where has he been all along? The whole country needs assessment and project planning, not off the cuff promises during campaigns. This election will be lost on issues of poor judgement, and arrogance.

  42. Another insult and irresponsible statement by the ever intoxicated clown of a president. He always takes Zambians so much for granted. Where does he get the idea that government money meant for the development of the whole country comes from his pockets? Is it why he has been illegally dipping his fingers into government coffers since he fraudulently and violently assumed the presidency? This chap must be stopped at all costs before he does more damage to Zambia.
    He is just good at doing those silly dances at foreign airports.

  43. Very unfit for president. What a drunkard! He has no idea what it means to be president of a republic. He thinks it means settling personal scores with whoever crosses his drunken path.

  44. THIS IS IMMATURE!YOU ARE PRESIDENT FOR ALL.WHETHER WE VOTE FOR YOU OR NOT.THEN YOU HAVE TO TELL THE JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES THEY DON’T DESERVE ANYTHING FROM YOU.

  45. I didn’t even read the whole article. Its ridiculous to even entertain such a notion from the Head of State, sad really. This seems like a fateful misunderstanding. As chief executive and commander in chief of the armed forces, the President obviously has responsibility for national security. But to claim that he has no greater responsibility than “developing the areas where he amasses votes” is a paternalistic invention that is historically unfounded and potentially damaging to the political heritage of the nation.

    The presidential oath of office that is prescribed by the Zambian Constitution, makes it clear that the President’s supreme responsibility is to “…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Zambia.” There is no mention of public bias. It is the…

  46. HH in Solwezi quoted in January 2015 election, “PF are diverting your money from copper to develop Chinsali. UPND will prioritize development in Solwezi”.

    • @55 Inchintucintu… you are spot on!! But PF’s communication team cannot even lurch on this when campaigning in Muchinga so that this guy HH can even start fearing to go there! He is the one who started politics of tribe and regionalism but when it hurts him he complains. During Jan’15 by-elections his key supporter Milupi said “Western,Southern and North Western, lets us unite and vote HH so that we can control Zambia”. What about other provinces??

  47. Tu UPND, nachimikalipa, just prepare for the worst defeat of your Kachema, ;cause we mean business this time around, remember this is 2016 and once beaten twice shy. You ambushed PF in 2015 bye-elections but this time, we shall rise like bees or inseba on 11 August to vote for Edgar Chagwa Lungu and the PF and on 13th August 2016 Zambia will be marching to Heroes Stadium in masses again for ONE EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU FOR HIS PRESIDENCY INAUGURATION, FIVE SOLID OF REAL DEVELOPMENT!

  48. Of HH is logically right bcoz Lungu has played in his hands and provided him with the ammunition to attack him! What Lungu said is usually not pronounced but carried out through actions to reward those that show confidence in a party,to keep their loyalty! It is unwritten rule so Lungu shud have kept it under wraps,just execute after winning. It has been proved some parts of Zambia will never appreciate anybody however much they can do. In such cases just transform strongholds and carry out token development in areas where they don’t appreciate development. Also provinces like NW which some parties have managed to hold on to could easily warm up to PF if more development is taken there.Besides the mines (Economy) there is more diversity in NW than any other so it easier to win allies…

  49. It makes sense! If they keep on rejecting you in spite of all you are doing in the regions where they live, it is good not to waste time, money and resources in places where people are phobic to other people!

  50. Actually dull people are those who don’t understand how the world operates! Dull RSA (UPND – Nkanga!) We know you all! You will fish a dry one!

  51. This is unfortunate. Our president says he is a Christian, how does he reconcile what he said with the word of God which says love even those who don’t love you? This is electoral blackmail. The government money does not belong to a president for him to choose at will to discriminate. It looks like our president has become so paranoid about the prospect of losing.

  52. government was very much around during HHs deal on privatization,now you need to know that HH and his team came in as advisors who were given a go ahead by chiluba to sale the mines,privatization has own its on many disadvantages but you ought to know the process first, privatization works just like auction sales,the highest bidder wins but it wasn’t like this when HH and team embarked on the privatization process, HH and the A team somehow managed to sale the mines to lower bidders, after the conplition of sales HH and A team abnormaly gained wealth,HH upon realising what was going to happen, he bought a house overseas and moved him and his family out of arms way,it was later on when the courts pointed at chiluba only then did HH return to zambia, living copperbelt a ghost…

  53. now not only is privatization bad but it forces the government to have little say because that mining piece of land is not ours anymore,its like selling your car and watching the buyer scartch its paint off, zesco and zamtel were too almost sold, was it not for pf to first forcefuly reposes zamtel and then stop the process of zesco, now lets compare the private effect to government owned
    mine workers -underpaid,mistreated,fired whenever negatively affected,raw material is exported then extracted in different categories like minerals, copper, gold. hence mines making abnormal profits on our expenses , not usually properly dressed for thier works
    zesco workers-fairly paid,well dressed and equipped for the jobs,fairly treated and will not get fired due to poor rain fall or water shortage at…

  54. and whatever zesco makes circulates within our country, as much as we can complain of zesco tarrifs just know, if it was sold,it could have been worse. ask bashi mine how they survive because HH unfixed what he now wants to fix

    message approved

  55. That is wishful thinking by Lungu. The man is just a failure.
    Failed to run a law firm and has now failed the govern the country.

  56. It is a sheer waste of time to concentrate on developing areas like North Western, Southern and Wstern Provinces which always Votes for HH. I 100% AGREE WITH PRESIDENT LUNGU on this stance. If he neglects people that are voting for him then he is doomed. No matter how much he tries to develop these provinces people will not vote for him because the guys are tribal. Seriously speaking the provinces I have mentioned are a disgrace to our Mother zambia

  57. Why so much cry you ungrateful UPND. to day he is yr president just because he wants to show appreciation to those who gives him more votes, actually he did not say that he will not take development to yr strong holds, he just said he will give first priority to show gratitude those who loves him more that you do. Even if it were HH he will do the same may be even worse that our ECL who has demonstrated that he loves all Zambians. So shut up ECL loves you all just appreciate but knowing you it is not possible already you have been saying that he has done nothing for the country.
