President Edgar Lungs address rally at Kamba grounds in Ndola

President Edgar Lungu has challenged the opposition UPND to consider convening a general conference and make a review on why the party has continuously been losing general elections.

President Lungu says unless democracy is entrenched in the opposition grouping, the UPND will continue loosing elections.

The President says the UPND has been failing in past elections because the people of Zambia have seen that the party has no agenda for

He has since cautioned the people of Zambia not to experiment with leadership because the PF has delivered on its campaign promises.

President Lungu says the PF has implemented the best manifesto so far and results are there for all Zambians to see in various sectors of the economy.

The President said this at a campaign rally in Luanshya yesterday.

He said development has no finishing line adding that the PF will continue rolling out development to all corners of Zambia once given a fresh mandate.

He said the PF has the best manifesto so far among the participating political parties.

President Lungu has further promised to look into the water blues in Luanshya.

The Head of State who was flanked by First Lady Esther has urged the people of Luanshya to give him and all PF candidates a resounding vote August 11 polls.

Meanwhile, President Lungu said his administration is closely following events in the mining sector.

He is optimistic that metal prices on the international market will improve and more jobs will in turn be created.

And President Edgar Lungu has advised election monitors and observers in the country to be very objective as they carry out their duties ahead of the August 11 polls.

The President says government has been patient and allowed democracy to prevail in the elections but that the opposition are pushing him too far.

Addressing a rally in Mufulira, President Lungu said the opposition and selected media are always insulting him and he will reach a point where he cannot tolerate that anymore.

The President has further warned the opposition propagating violence that he will choose peace over democracy even if it means using draconian laws to prevent war as the country’s peace was bought at a great price.

President Lungu adds that the opposition have been planning to win the elections at all cost and may spoil the country if they lose.

And President Lungu has also said that Zambians should not be insulted by the opposition UPND who are promising to bring Anglo America to open new mines if voted for when the company has been faced with operational challenges and closing in some countries

He has promised electorates in Mufulira that he will continue with late President Michael Sata’s development agenda which is the developmental plan for the party.

The President said voting for the opposition would be retrogressive to national development.

He called on electorates to vote for Evans Chibanda contesting the Mufulira Central Parliamentary seat and Yamfwa Mukanga re-contesting the Kantanshi seat together with the mayor and councillors.

President Lungu also held a rally in Kalulushi district earlier to drum up support for PF candidates.

    • I watched videos of that rally in Ndola, just full of sadness and sorrows. And very dangerous crowd dancing dununa reverse of a weak stage. Including the so called Edgar’s wife, I feel sorry for her. What is she doing on campaign trail, can’t she leave it for the Mumbi Phiris? Ba Ester is just adding dull atmosphere on stage. Let your Lungu dance freely.
      And that Kalusha Bwalya can’t speak my goodness. He better stop, just return money they paid him.
      Ba Mukupa tried, but each time he shouts “Zambia…” people answered ” FORWARD..”. Then he change ” One Zambia…”
      Compare that to HH’s Chifubu rally he addressed in Bemba….

  1. Very useless visionless PF, you are wasting your energy, time & resources!
    The people of Zambia have overwhelming made their minds to vote against the incompetent, yet visionless & violent PF. No one wants to listen to Donchi Kubeba pathological lies of 90 days fairytales masked into Dununa Reversed.
    Bye bye PF bandits, 8 days left. Tired of PF never ending lies.
    Viva UPND!

    • Look at Kambwili, he used to walk just behind Edgar, but now he is ignored and thrown in same crowd of kaponyas. Kambwili, just defect, you can still win the MP seat or UPND can offer you ambassador position .
      And PF green colors are gone. The only green I see is the paramilitary.
      If HH losses this elections ninshi Lesa takwaba.

    • I always wonder when some people speak on behalf of other people. How sure are you that the people of Zambia have overwhelmingly decided to vote against PF and ECL? All what I know is that votes are secret and the winner will emerge after all the ballot papers are counted and announced by ECZ. At Nostradamus, Lesa is not only for HH. Do you tell me that ever since HH has been loosing elections God has never been there? Its just that God’s time is not our time. It is possible that HH can lose election a million times but God is there before, now and forever. God’s existence is not purposely to make HH win election.

  4. If the PF has done so well then Lungu should attend the Presidential Debate on 4th August to defend the PF record from 2011 to 2016 and then speak to the PF Manifesto for 2016 to 2021. We want to hear your Vision for the next 5 years Mr President. If u don’t attend this Debate then it means u have no vision and many of us will not vote for u on 11th August 2016 becoz without a Vision people perish. We cannot afford this becoz we have suffered a lot under yr misrule.

  5. @ Masauso
    Go and ask you Kachema to waste his time because he has nothing to offer. We go work to do. If you have suffered a lot as your say, then a job from Fat Albert as a lorry boy, isnt that his speciality or if not go and become a shepherd at Under 5’s cattle kraal. When we were going to school and investing in education, you were busy womanising and marrying many women as per your tradition and now you want us to manage your home?

    • Kopala i agree with you. When days of national prays in Zambia are called, one particular presidential candidate dose nit pitch up. This event is very important as well so why are his stooges forcing his Excellence to go and debate? He is busy with his campaign schedule.

  6. I’m Zambian and I’m greatly offended by the following:
    1. Extreme levels of corruption. PF has been paying US$2 000 000 per km instead of US$470 000 per km on roads to fund corruption. And this is borrowed money;
    2. Borrowing hard currency to fund infrastructure development in an economy whose local currency is declining is extreme incompetence, ask any financial expert;
    3. Inflation from 7% to 22%;
    4. Exchange Rate from K6/US$ to now K9/US$ in a short period;
    5. Breakdown of law and order.
    Poverty is higher now than during the time of MMD!

  9. So PF bloggers think we are happy with high cost of living, 80% unemployment, loadshedding,lawlessness etc? They are very wrong and they will get a shock on 12th August. Civil Servants, teachers,students, the police and army,workers,businessmen, miners,farmers etc are all unhappy and want a change of govt. How many people are eating with Lungu and his corrupt PF govt? Very few. Even with the help of rigging Lungu cannot win this election. Forward with HH,GBM & UPND.

  10. “Meanwhile, President Lungu said his administration is closely following events in the mining sector.
    He is optimistic that metal prices on the international market will improve and more jobs will in turn be created.”
    Bwana Lungu – this means NOTHING to a starving jobless miner. Your statement does not inspire any hope at all to an angry and hungry jobless miner. In short – YOU HAVE FAILED the people on the Copperbelt.
    You can NEVER win an election with such a statement unless you rigged the election. Your time is UP.

  17. If Lungu spent only 10% of the time and energy he has spent campaigning on doing HIS JOB of President, maybe we could vote for him. But it seems he is only interested in himself.

    Mr President, please remember your employers, the People of Zambia, are expecting you to report back to them on what you have done by holding a PRESS CONFERENCE and by attending the DEBATE to tell us how you are going to solve the following problems-

    1. Unemployment. When are we going to see the 500,000 jobs that your PF promised?
    2. Price of mealie meal. This is now 3X as much as when PF came to government. How are you going to fix this?
    3. Zambian are now owing more that 7 BILLION DOLLARS in KALOBA that the PF has borrowed in our name. What plan have you got to repay this debt. AND the 8.5 BILLION…

  18. 3. Zambian are now owing more that 7 BILLION DOLLARS in KALOBA that the PF has borrowed in our name. What plan have you got to repay this debt. AND the 8.5 BILLION DOLLARS of INTEREST that will have to be paid for this borrowing by 2024.
    4. How you are going to save our Kwacha? It has lost MORE THAN HALF of its value since PF was elected, meaning those Zambians with any money in the pocket now have 50% LESS money than in 2011!
    5. How you are going to end the LOAD SHEDDING that is destroying our economy and causing massive job losses. After spending millions and millions on power stations we still have this problem that is preventing development.
    6. And……. have you PAID ZRA taxes on the 23 MILLION KWACHA that just fell out of the sky since you were elected!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We await…
