President Edgar Lungu’s daughter Tasila has refuted reports that she challenged UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to a live TV debate.
In a statement, Tasila who aspiring for a ward seat in Chawama under the PF ticket said it has come to her attention that statements have been issued and circulated on and off line directly attributed to her ostensibly challenging Mr Hichilema to a debate.
“I would like to set the record straight here and now by categorically refuting any authorship of the statement (s), either officially or unofficially. Please treat the statements as a hoax,” Tasila said.
“I nevertheless thank you very much, especially the people of Chawama, where I am contesting a seat as a Councillor, and also thank you for the unwavering support you have continued to give President Edgar Chagwa Lungu as he takes his development campaign across the country ahead of the 11th August polls. God bless you all.
