PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu speaking when he addressed a rally at cropping area in Mambwe district’s Malambo constituency on Wednesday.

President Edgar Lungu has assured the people of Chama in Muchinga Province that he will ensure that the country continues enjoying peace during and after elections.

The President said security officers have been directed to deal firmly with people perpetrating violence in the country during and after the polls next week.

The Head of State said there are people who are planning to cause confusions once they lose elections but that the police will meet them head on to ensure peace prevails in the country.

He said all parties should respect the will of the people by accepting whoever will be elected in the general elections next week.

He said some leaders of the opposition want to cause confusions during voting so that they can find a reason to dispute election results.

Speaking in Chama today when he addressed a public rally at the market ground, President Lungu said the people of Zambia should guard against and resist provocations.

And PF aspiring MP for Chama South Darious Mumba said the people of Chama have every right to vote for President Lungu and the PF owing to the developmental projects that have been seen in the district during the reign of the ruling party.

Mr. Mumba said the district has seen more projects being implemented in the few years the PF has been in government than during the time of other regimes.
He called on the electorates to shame the opposition who are misleading the people that the PF have not delivered by voting in numbers for the ruling party.

Meanwhile business in Chama town in Muchinga Province came to a complete halt as President Edgar Lungu addressed a public rally at the market ground to seek his re-election in the coming general elections.
Hundreds of people lined up on the streets from the airstrip to the market where the rally took place in order to catch a glimpse of the head of state.

Some stores were found closed while others were left unattended as owners stepped out to see and listen to President Lungu as he addressed a huge crowd at the market grounds.

The President crossed over to Chama District in Muchinga Province on his campaign tour of Eastern Province.

    • Let peace reign in Zambia. In a winner takes it all electoral system, we can only have one candidate carry the day. Opponents can always try to improve next time.

    • Ba Kitwe Kudos, you think PF is everything because of that job you have been given even when you do not deserve it. This months pay will be the last one. Learn to see the bigger picture here, PF’s policies are sending to bed thousands of children due to holding the value of the kwacha using BOZ to remove liquidity in the market. Such policies can only be for a short term, but your PF has done this for the last 7 months, the implications are simple shrinking economy, job loses and increase in poverty.

  4. LUSAKA TIMES YOU SEEM TO BE ONLY PRAISING LUNGU, BUT YOU ARE FAILING TO UPDATE US ON THE RIGGING SCHEMES BY LUNGU AND HIS PF WHICH ARE BEING EXPOSED. PLEASE LUSAKA TIMES, THIS TIME IS NOT TIME FOR YOU TO CONTINUE PRAISING LUNGU OVER NOTHING OF SUBSTANCE. NOW IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO GIVE THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE CRITICAL INFORMATION WHICH WILL HELP THE VOTERS TO VOTE WISELY NEXT THURSDAY. IF YOU ARE BIASED TOWARDS LUNGU, I THINK THE RIGHT THING FOR YOU TO DO NOW IS TO REMAIN NEUTRAL AND INFORM US OF ELECTION ISSUES WHICH ARE GOING ON AROUND THE COUNTRY.

  5. Truth, why should LT up date you about rigging, Lungu has already asked the UPND who knows more about rigging to tell the nation and we are still waiting to hear from them.
