United States of America Under Secretary of State for African Affairs Linda Thomas Greenfield has congratulated President Edgar Lungu on his re-election, saying his second tenure in office is a clear manifestation of the Zambian people on his leadership.

She noted that although there were some flaws in the electoral process, President Lungu was duly elected and he is a legitimate president whom the US government recognizes.

“President Lungu you have been inaugurated and you are the President of Zambia known within and internationally,” said Ms Greenfield.

Speaking during a closed door meeting at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York yesterday, the US Under Secretary of State for African Affairs said her government recognises President Lungu’s re-election and advised him to promote political dialogue as Zambia’s Head of State.

She however warned that the US government would not tolerate violence and political instability saying those that will found wanting will be held accountable for their deeds.

The US envoy said the US government has been keenly following the democratic trends in Zambia and that her government will continue to work with the Zambia government to foster development.

Ms Greenfield pointed out that the Zambian military personnel in peace keeping missions abroad were the
best the US has worked with as they have shown exemplary behaviour during trainings and other military engagements.

The US Under Secretary has since pledged her country’s continued financial support for Zambian military training and increase the number of personnel in various trainings.

She cited the Mandela-Washington fellowship programme as one of the programmes many Zambians have benefited from and more others will be engaged in.

And President Edgar Lungu commended the United States government for its continued commitment to Africa. Mr. Lungu has since assured Ms Greenfield that his administration will continue to promote democratic principles to in order to move the country forward.

He further told her that his government has in this vain given back media operating licenses that were suspended to some broadcasting houses due to unprofessional conduct which he said threatened the unity and security of the nation.

Recently , the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) announced that it has lifted its ban on the broadcasting licences on two community broadcasting houses.

IBA Chairman Justin Mutale, the IBA board chairperson , said the move followed the three Stations’ adherence to the operating licences they were earlier issued.

The three are the Itezhi Tezhi Community Radio Station and Muvi TV, respectively.

President Lungu also disclosed government will now embark on measures to improve the economic status of the country.

He explained that some of the measures his government will take includes cutting un necessary subsidies on fuel and electricity which he said will bring hardships in the beginning but will help improve the economic status of the nation in the long run.

This is contained in a statement from the Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda.

    • I sense a certain amount of resignation in the statement, like oh well, if Zambians can live with it, so can we.
      The flaws actually made the playing field uneven, but what the heck? There is nothing much of interest in Zambia (like loads of oil) anyway that we Americans can exploit. And you mortgaged your country to us via the IMF who have you very firmly by the balls, so we are good.

    • This is damage limitation guys. The truth shall be known when US publish their official status report on Zambia like they do every year.

      That picture is fake but a photoshopped one. This time Under secretary did not even want to meet Lungu after he snubbed her last time she came to Zambia.

      There more coming bad news coming for Lungu. The PF press and PF mouth piece are busy doing some damage limitations to avoid embarassing the illegal president.

      This story is trying hard to counter The Carter observer mission which cast a huge doubt on Lungu’s election.

      Meanwhile IMF has warned Lungu to observe rule of and make sure justice is seen to done. And its going to release money until Lungi shows seriousness.

Its high time an assessment is made prior to undertaking some of these trips abroad to these august meetings when presence of the head of state is not clearly defined! My own opinion of this attendance by Lungu is a show inviting recognition of having been flawlessly re-elected and to rebuild his shaky confidence of return to state house as president of Zambia!

They rigged in southern province and they will not have the chance again. in 2021 all electrol officials will come from other provinces to man elections there then you will see the true picture you idi0ts. These Tonga teachers from SP will not be used again electrol officials again then you will see how you will lose.

  2. HH, the writing is on the wall, everybody ha moved on on this election. It is time he comes out and talk honestly to his supporters and look them in the eye and say we lost. Lets mobilise for 2021. You lost in Lusaka, no MP , you lost on Copperbelt , again no MP.

    If he continues his stolen election agenda , nobody is listening to that song. It is a waste of time and come on he can’t take for ever to mourn. Even Royal funerals do end and it is time to start organization the party. The fact that UPND has no MPS in Lusaka and Copperbelt should inspire HH to get out and work and find out why the failed in these areas. If he can’t do it, let him step aside and let young blood take over

  3. We Zambians (at least those of us who voted) know that the electoral process had a number of challenges. The turn out was high in comparison to previous elections. The verification process needed all stakeholders to be present, etc. All in all a fair assessment from the Undersecretary. Time for the Government, MPs and those that lost elections to get to work. After all you all wanted to get into government to SERVE. So do the right thing.

      The us is right, Lungu was duly elected. The petitioners should have been courageous to present their case had had any grounds for their petition.

      But all was born out of bitterness, envy and anger.

      Now, you cannot go to court and present anger, bitterness and envy as evidence to support your petition.

You people, honestly did you expect that American envoy who visited Edgar at a New York hotel to say to him that “you won a fraudulent election?” And I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed that from the time the President was declared “winner” he does not look all that happy. He’s been kind of depressed. Something must be wrong and every well-informed Zambian knows why.

  6. How can something be legitimate if it has flaws. This woman is contradicting herself. An electoral process is meant to be free and fair; and without any flaws. I will pray for justice to prevail, and I know the Lord will hear my prayer. It is very interesting that people tend to think that their misdeeds will not catch-up with them. Where is FTJ Chiluba after all the money he embezzled? Lungu`s time will some at God’s appointed time. We will all have to answer to the Almighty Father for our deeds on earth.

We need to ensure he succeeds in the next 5 years by offering advice and support and where we find him wanting offer him constructive criticism. His success is success for all and certainly his failure is detrimental to all of us. Time for campaigns and squabbles is over and let us all unite in developing our country for the next 5 years. Removal of tariffs on fuel and electricity should be a must and should be done now. I will be more caucious with removal of agricultural subsidies e.g. on fertilizer.

    The United States is disappointed that politically motivated violence and constraints on media freedom have continued after Zambia’s August 11 general election.
    We are especially concerned about the Independent Broadcaster Association’s August 22 suspension of three broadcasting licenses, which is a continuation of a troubling pre-electoral trend of restrictions on independent media voices and freedom of peaceful assembly. Zambia’s proud democratic traditions are not enhanced by such restrictions, nor will they help the country to unite and move forward.

They should not go out of their way, breakaway from their long-standing tradition, to congratulate Lungu for stealing an election. If they do, they would be setting a bad precedence. Lungu, himself, has already set such an ugly one for our country.

How can america criticises a government they will be working with or trying to work with? Remember also that amerians have nothing to gain from a poor country like zambia which will soon be ballocked by the IMF.

    CIA/America’s involvement in the killing of Patrice Lumumba is well documented.

    The killing of Muamar Gadaffi, Saddam etc are recent atrocities which cannot be ignored.

    America’s foreign policy is warped & therefore their recognition of LUNGU does not add to legitimacy of his victory.

    If LUNGU/PF genuinely won, why was he scared for evidence to be presented in a court of law.

    These press secretaries in Zambia have a poor reputation of issuing lies and spin doctoring everything so much that they can deny that someone is sick even when the doctor is in the process of signing a death certificate.

    And what’s more, there is no independent media to verify the statement because The humble one, aka Kim Jun UN of Zambia has silenced them all. It’s ridiculous to think these guys can even walk with their heads high without any shame – they know they never won any…

  25. This is a lie and pure propaganda. The election was disputed and a Petetion was filed with Concourt. The Petetion is pending and until the Petetion is heard and determined nobody can say Lungu genuinely and legitimately won this election. The onus is on Lungu to prove that he genuinely and legally won this election. So far Lungu has failed to do this and instead he has connived with Concourt to block the Petetion. This suggests Lungu lost this election and even failed to meet the 50% + 1 Vote threshold. The Petetion Hearing will prove this and for now Lungu remains an illegitimate President becoz he stole the 2016 election.

The USA govt is a firm believer of Rule of Law and Constitutional Democracy and there is no way the American govt will endorse electoral fraud and the violation of Petetioners’ rights. The only solution is for the Lungu govt to correct the flaws. The biggest flaw is the Election Petetion filed with Concourt. Without hearing this Petetion and determining it otherwise it is true that Lungu stole this election and as such will remain…

This Rat and Caterpillar eating Mother Fuc.ker Lungu has been forced to meet with the with US Assistant Secretary for African Affairs Linda Thomas Greenfield – the very person he refused to meet when she was in Lusaka.
    Lungu will NOT and will never be accorded an opportunity to meet the US President. They believe he is nearly equivalent to US Assistant Secretary for African Affairs BUT far away from the President Obama, so he has to made do with the Zambian equivalent of Under Secretary at Foreign Affairs. That’s the best picture Lungu will take back to Zambia for the meeting he hired the Jet for. Linda Thomas has put him right in his place. Kekekeke

Yes indeed there were some flaws:refusing to accept election outcome before votes are even cast, interfering in ECZ work on grounds of suspected rigging but proving nothing,beating and chasing away polling agents of another party from polling stations so that they don’t witness the voting and counting process,unprecedented voter turn out of 72% in strongholds of one party above national average of 51%,unusually low votes for an incumbent in opposition parties strongholds with unusually high numbers of spoiled ballots. With all these anomalies, Lungu won and they failed to prove otherwise over two solid weeks!! Despite all these,Lungu won and ““President Lungu you have been inaugurated and you are the President of Zambia known within and internationally,” said Ms Greenfield.

    In the flaws that were raised in the passed elections such shortage of the G12 forms in some totaling centers, there was no evidence showing that such flaws favoured any particular candidate.

    The USA is right, Lungu was duly elected, and the result was a true reflection of the will of the people of Zambia.

    The petitioners should have been courageous to present their case had they had any grounds for their petition. But all was born out of bitterness, envy and anger.

    Now, you cannot go to court and present anger, bitterness and envy as evidence to support your petition. This is why it flopped.

  37. @6.2 Neo-Chilyata aka HH, I cannot make head or tail of what you are talking about. It qualifies as ranting and does not deserve a comment from me in case people can’t tell the difference.
    Anyway, just to clarify for you, I am not in Botswana cleaning toilets. I am very much in Zambia and living well. And I provide employment and income to several domestic workers whom I am told that I pay and treat better than HH does to his workers. Surely you can tell the quality of person that I am from my civil language. Those who clean toilets use foul language, like you. Also those who clean toilets, like you, do not know and thetefore do not appreciate the respectable parts of their mother where they came from.

    • @Hon Terrible Nio:
      You have come back from cleaning toilets now – welcome back! You can ONLY cheat Rat and Caterpillar eating grandmother that you are in Zambia. Of you course you are busy cleaning toilets in Restaurants in Botswana. You don’t need to be embarrassed – you left the country to erk a living by scratching your Ar.se hand to mouth every month by cleaning toilets. That is what you were born into and it is the job you are best suited to excell into. Unfortunately, it is a curse you inherited from your evil and wicked grandmother and which you will pass on to your great grandchildren and their children! Rat eating Ar.sewhore!

  38. Americans are sharp. Their Government is great. They are good at diplomacy. This is the same lady our President Mr. Lungu did not meet when she came to Zambia during election campaigns. Now we get to New York hoping to meet bigger bosses than she and who comes to meet us? the same lady we could not meet in Lusaka. It is through her that we now send statement to the US government on how we will tackle the economy by removing subsidies etc. Nxt time we should accord due respect to our visitors. America is a big nation. You dont snub it’s envoys.

  39. @49, now that is warped thinking and it can only come of UPND motor mouth. Boss what you are saying is not logical. If the Americans thought Edgar snubbed Linda, they would have snubbed him too. But instead Linda paid a courtesy call on ECL and they had frank discussions ti hear each others viewpoint. The summary of it all is that America congratulated Zambia and President Edgar Lungu in particular. The failure to read things correctly is what greatly contributed to the umpteenth electoral loss by one HH. What species of humans are you guys kanshi imwe ba UPND? Look the fact is that UPND is now irrelevant to Zambia no matter how relevant you want to sound. No more diplomatic dinners they will not attend.

      What a cocktail you are presenting here! Please give us the facts from your own view point regarding what happened when the American dignitary you are talking about visited Zambia. If what Zambian Family @49 is saying is what transpired, then you have not, in any way assailed his view point.

  40. Interesting that Namibian President reportedly snubbed the Astoria Hotel coz of $10 000 per night charge. Comparatively Namibia is an upper middle income country but their president opted to stay ina $1 000 place. Beggar Zambia on the other hand even out did itself and chatered in addition. Kaya.

  42. Insult him as much as you can Edgar is president. As for Obama not meeting Edgar this is not important and it just shows that you have got a bad complex.

  46. It is almost impossible to rig an election in Zambia! You cannot rig an election when the Commonwealth and other international observers are watching and the opposition is there to tally all results! UPND will never make it as government in Zambia as long as we live!

  47. Namibia’s President Geingob refused to stay in the Waldorf Astoria because of their ridiculously high rates (he elected for a cheaper joint meantime). This is the trend of African leaders who are realizing it is not exactly rocket science to actually concentrate on service and not claiming exorbitant entitlements. By the way, Namibia mostly fund their budget from own resources…
