President Lungu addresses the crowd at the final PF rally at Woodlands Stadium grounds

President Edgar Lungu has accused one of his biggest rival in tomorrow’s elections Hakainde Hichilema of running for office because of his love of money.

President Lungu said Mr Hichilema has lost a lot of his personal money since 2006 when he started standing as President.

He said Mr Hichilema and his running mate Geoffrey Mwamba are only interested in increasing their business empires once elected into office.

President Lungu was speaking at the PF final campaign rally held at Woodlands Stadium grounds in Chilenje township this afternoon.

“Other parties have kept one leader who keeps losing elections, each time he loses, he is brought back. This goes to show that this party does not have leaders. In the PF, we have a lot of potential. Some parties don’t have leading options, this is why since 2006, they featured the same blank player and he keeps losing,” President Lungu said.

He said the UPND does not have a replacement for Mr Hichilema hence they keep recycling him even after losing a number of elections.

“They don’t have tactics, strategy and alternative leadership. They keep making the same mistakes,” he said.

“He has lost his life time investments and he wants to make more money and recoup his investment.”

He declared that he is the best man for the job based on his impressive track record since assuming office.

President Lungu also stated that the PF is the best placed political party under his leadership to take Zambia forward.

He said his leadership has been tried and tested and that he has performed very well as President and deserves a second full five-year term.

President Lungu who was flanked by First Lady Esther said he has managed to follow in the vision of the party’s founding leader late Michael Sata.

And President Lungu’s running mate Inonge Wina urged has urged the electorate to vote for a leader who is committed to gender parity.

Mrs Wina said the PF under President Lungu has passed the Gender equality Bill to show that men and women can work together to develop the country.

She also called on Zambians to ensure that there is peace everywhere and ensure that Zambia continues to enjoy peace.

“I am glad to see some International Reporters, so that they can report the truth of what they see here because a lot of misinformation has passed and given to the international community, to the contrary, Zambia is enjoying peace. UPND is having a meeting now in Chawama and we are here also having our meeting. By evening, we will hear, you will experience violence at their meetings.”

  1. Even you Mr President sir your interest is to increase your net worthy like you have already done from K2.3m to K23m thereabout and if you are given a full term of five years your net worthy will increase to abnormal figures.

    • This guy is the most weird president I have heard of. This was his last rally, instead of focusing on his achievements and way forward he wasted people`s time on rhetoric. Just wonder how Zambians find time to listen to this guy.

    • Think about the future of your children!!!

      This is the last for Zambians. Think about the future of your children. If Zambians make a mistake of electing Lungu, the country should brace for unbearable hardships—–Zambian economy will contract worse than 3% it is at now, inflation will be worse that 21% it is at today, load-shedding will be worse. The IMF will give Zambia tough conditions of borrowing. To fix the damage it will take Zambia 30 – 35 years. That is if a good leader is elected after Lungu.

    • Breaking News: The Zambia outgoing president has been seen this evening loading a truck with his personal effects in readiness to vacate the stately house after a very big margin loss to HH tomorrow. We wish ECL the very best for the future and we only hope JK will be kind enough to cut a copy of Dununa song to remind then president the good dance styles he had during his tenure in office. Bon voyage ECL, will meet you again in the court of law for reasons best known to yourself and your stooges.

    • @1 UNDERSTAND THE LOGIC OF THE ARGUMENT. THERE’S NO ONE WHO IS SAYING ECL DOESN’T LIKE MONEY. BUT, WHY FOR SOME IT’S NAIL AND TOOTH IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE STAYED IN OPPOSITION FOR SUCH A LONG TIME THAT THEY HAVE EVEN SPENT WHOLE THE MONEY THEY CONED FROM THE PUBLIC AND BORROWED MORE FROM THE PEOPLE THEY HAVE PROMISED TO GIVE MINES SUCH THAT COMING TO LEAD THE PEOPLE, IN THE UNLIKELY SITUATION THAT THEY WIN, IS VERY SECONDARY. THEIR FIGHT FOR PRESIDENCY IS TO COME AND RECOVER THE LOST MONEY AND PAY BACK THEIR PARTY AND CAMPAIGN CREDITORS. SO BE CAREFUL WITH CHITOMBWA AND CHIDUMBO. I-VOTE NIPALI ECL.

    • How on earth is voting for HH and fat Albert GBM voting wisely??? Are people insane???? GBM is a wife beater who acknowledges that. And on top of that, he’s got the most disgusting mouth in Zambia. He has no respect for anyone just like HH who is so arrogant and evil.
      To vote wisely at this time is to vote for ECL and Mama Inonge who will not embarrass the country should anything happen to the President

  2. Mr president

    Your bank balance increased to $2.3 million in one year like magic despite the tough economic winds.

    How did you manege that magic ?

    Also inflation at 22% is killing the people , any idea when you will talk about that?

    • Lungu is such a thick dolt! He stole K23m in one year that he has declared to us Zambians. He never paid taxes on that money. And then he used govt resources for 90 days with his illegal ministers to rig the elections (the only news on ZNBC is about him, the Police Force blocks UPND rallies, the ZAF blocks UPND flights, and UPND supporters are beaten and killed). Chakolwa should go to hell and rot in Chawama.

  4. And how much did you put into PF to recoup K23 million…you dimwit of a president. Even on the last day of your campaign you fail to reassure Zambians of your plans to rectify our ailing economy. All you talk about is other peoples hard earned wealth. You are such a pathetic imbecile who even dares HH and GBM to reduce the price of meat and mealie meal before you reduce the cost of production….GOOD BYE ***** AND I WISH YOU YEARS OF HARD DRINKING WITH THE K23 MILLION YOU HAVE STOLEN BECAUSE I CANT SEE YOU DOING ANYTHING ELSE.

    • This end-of capaign speech shows just how dull this Lungu is!

      He can accuse the opposition of wanting office for money, but the clear evidence is that he is here to LOOT the money of poor Zambians to enrich himself!

      Lungu, do not insult Zambians intelligence! We have seen how you waste our meagre resources travelling with your friends on US$ 300,000 plane charters.

      You yourself have admitted going from 0 Kwacha to K23 MILLION in less that two years!

      And you still are dishonest enough to accuse your rivals of love of money?

      LIAR! Go now. Your time is up. Wait for the ACC to come around and ask you how you obtained your K23 MILLION.

    • It’s the other way round.
      HH and his supporters are so obssessed with Edgar Lungu that they will do anything to win which will never happen only in their dreams.
      ECL is winning, come to Zambia and see how the country is supporting PF and Edgar. Don’t be decieve. PF have won these elections! I’m so confident that I may not even have to cast my vote for Edgar

  6. It’s a shame that the entire rally focused on character assassination and nothing to do with policy. Our desire for greater and better things as Zambians is so pathetic. If we want better leadership, we must learn to demand for it regardless.

  7. Mr. President, that is being hypocrite, you have the same interest like HH & GBM, unless you tell the nation how you came to that ka ma 23mil. As long as you don`t, then you have no right to accuse HH of the same case.
    BTW, this message would have been effective if it had been delivered face to face with HH, e.g.during a debate, but you opted not to do so. So it doesn`t make sense now for you to start accusing HH now. Otherwise, it looks like these are just kicks of a dying horse.
    Campaign is over, take a few hours off and relax. I wish you a “Zambian People `s choice” of who they want to lead them without being influence by these CHEAP claims.

ELECTIONS COME AND GO BUT RELATIONS WILL STILL REMAIN. I THANK YOU FOR THE COMMENTS AND INSULTS YOUR RENDERED TO ALL PARTICIPATING PARTIES. WE SHALL MEET AGAIN EITHER DURING RE-RUN OR IN 2021. FOR LOSERS GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARDS AND RE-PLAN YOUR STRATEGIES, FOR WINNERS CONGRATULATIONS. HAVE A NICE SLEEP AND AVOID LIES BUT SAY THE ONLY TRUTH.

  10. What a dull leader! I do not know how people manage to endure Lungu’s thoughtless campaign messages.

    The campaign window has closed without Lungu explaining what he will do to make this country economically and gracefully move forward. No national plan or strategy to sell to the electorate. Nothing!

    All we heard from him is vitriolic and negative campaign messages full of “mudslinging” and “threats” nothing else.

    What a mongolian for a presidential candidate, but again what do you expect to come from a mongolian party?

    Whoever was the campaign manager or campaign director was paid or toiled for nothing because Lungu never said anything that can make someone normal give him a vote.

    I hope after tomorrow Lungu will have enough time to go to an alcohol rehabilitation…

      As an independent observer even last time useless chaps insulted edigar even this time they are busy insulting him. But all i know useless people are talkative and those who support hh are: Tongas, Frustrated, uneducated, villagers, spiritualy and metally empaired, the poor by choice and arrogant for nothing. Therefore, pf cadres never mind sda can’t lead the nation lest he may disturb the holy sunday and forces us to be worshipping on Saturday, hence disturbing weekend. Non starter mudala an less after this generation let him try 3001.

  13. It’s very true. HH and GBM want to recoup their money, after losing so much and entering into alliances with questionable people. Their initial priority if they win (God forbid) will be to repay the debts and enhance their businesses. Vote wisely tomorrow.

  17. I watched both rallies between HH and ECL. I must say been last day of campaigning none of the two presidential hopeful candidates did speak about their plans if elected or re-elected. Instead they both taking about each other so shameful. For Lungu I expected him to talk about what pf has done since they came in office and what his future plans are for the country. And for HH I expected him to clearly talk about his 10 point plans and first thing he would do if elected. Unfortunately none of them made sense to me. At this time in Zambia we don’t have quality political leaders, these are all pretenders and no much experience in governance.

    ============================
    There is currently no wind of change in Zambia. You have yet another term at your hands; use it well, God is watching. As for the other party, the people of Zambia have democratically rejected it. Suffice to say we currently have the wind of rejection against delusional and gullible individuals masquerading as leaders. Less than 12hours to go.

  20. If ever anyone needed proof that Lungu does NOT have a vision for mother Zambia on the way forward in terms of development, here is proof in form of hollow campaign message. The fact that this empty message is all he can come up with in concluding PF campaign speaks volumes about how just how truly empty Lungu is.

    Potential Investors (both Zambians and non-Zambians) are silently listening and reading this hollow message and trying to make projections and determine whether or not to invest (and create much-needed jobs for our youth). This is a no brianer, a hollow message begets hollow investment.

    Frankly, its easy to see why Lungu chickened out of the Presidential debate.

  21. ALungu, I would like to say thankyou for your services to the nation, as You are getting voted into retirement by the Zambian electorate.
    Unfortunately theres NOTHING to thank for your calamitous tenure.
    However I will thank You, if You peacefully hand over power, once the electorate have spoken, & ushered in the NEW U.P.N.D Government
