    • My question is: How prayerful is the President himself? Let’s not use religion, in this case Christianity, to fool unsuspecting citizens.

    • I hope you guys know what you are sowing for your generations. These comments that you are making regarding someone who is encouraging people to pray to God are seeds that you are sowing for your generations to come. It might seem you are making political comments but knowing how the word of God has the ability not to return to God void, I can only plead with you to just keep quite when the Preaident makes spiritual comments rather than make such comments. It’s just a plea but if you are good with them please continue and you will remember my counsel in the near future. I plead with you without prejudice

      You are the very reason corruption Afrikan Politicians hide behind religion because they know that you can not question them. Do you know the difference between religion and spirituality? Go and find out the difference…Chiluba did the same thing he pulled a wool over your eyes with religion and declaration of Zambia as a Christian Nation (whatever that means) then plundered like their was no tomorrow.
      Wake up from your docility and folly!!

    • Ka @Miya, the God I know (who by the way is no respecter of religion) does not condone charlatans and laggards. My God does as you do, He enlightens you as you seek social justice, remove hypocrisy and serve the weakest in your society. What you have just said here does not represent any sane supernatural being at all – at all! I will not remember anything you have said because it is disgusting.

    • Looking through the Zambian diaspora comments its easy to understand why Lungu last week said he was against legislation that would allow voting but in his self confessed lack for vision he only understands it with respect of himself as if he is still running a campaign……maybe he plans to!

    • I would rather have a non religious president who is patriotic, works hard, cares about Zambia and it’s people, than a religious president who is lazy, hypocritical, self serving, and cares only about himself and his stomach, and not about the Zambian people. And I say this as a Christian myself.

    • Religion is highly abused in this nation . People are going to bed on empty tammies due to massive borrowing which was done at their expense and all they are told is to pray. Is this a solution to a good sleep on an empty stomach.

  5. Your Excellency keep encouraging Zambians to pray especially Kaponya (HH) and his satamic UPND minions who pray for calamity, ill-will and suffering upon the nation. Satamic devil worshipping cult.

    At the same time Mr President solve Zambia’s problems now that you have 4 years remaining. The dununa party days are over now we need you to fight corruption which is at its worst in Zambia’s history. Corruption is at its worst under your rule and ACC and DEC are toothless under your rule.

    • It’s stoopidity of the highest order to expect Lungu to fight corruption. Lungu is the source, the fount, of all corruption in Zambia. Even before he became a politician, his peers found him to have stolen from a client and revoked his lawyer’s practicing licence. What good can come out of such a common crooked thief?

  6. Ba upnd u are sata*nists who do not appreciate people that talk abt God. This is why the God u tease will not afford u an opportunity to rule. Remember ur tricks to vandalise vital installations have bn exposed. God is dealing with u while He is blessing PF. God has plans for his people while sata*n has no plans for Hellen Harlot.

    • Henry,this presidents keeps telling us to pray but meanwhile borrowing more and more strangling our future generations.Remember what the Bible says in Proverbs 22 v 7 “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”He is making us modern slaves of the west and you cant realize that…Wake up and smell the coffee.

  7. There is no coherence between his words and actions. The dots don’t add up. That is why people can never take his word seriously. He is a clueless opportunist. Zambia desperately needs a visionary leader to at least get us started on the right track. Myself like many Zambians try to see a leader or something like it in him but the actions do not add up. This country under him is not developing at all. Zambians a burdened in everything drinking water, energy, education, jobs, PF police, useless political appointments. Does he reflect all. 5 more years in hell.

    • @X. I agree. total deception. He is using ‘religion is opium of the people’. whom are you kidding mr president? when they are stealing to live well they work with Satan. When it comes to providing sustainable economic solutions, they ask the poor Zambian people to depend and wait on God and Jesus. very shameful as we know that Satan blinded the eyes of the people. He is doing exactly the same. God said work hard for out of sweat you will eat. But look there he keeps going back to God instead of working hard. God will bless the works of our hands. God does not support laziness. Let’s wake up!

    • It is known how the Europeans invaded colonies and early indigenous civilizations (i.e. Aztecs) with the bible “teaching” people about God yet looting their riches! Knowing Zambians are too gullible when it comes to being religious and the kind of closing eyes, talking in tongues whatever that is and, kneeling than the hard work God urges, the president has become an expert in exploiting this weakness while the gains the country is supposed to be making are not making headway!

  11. Lungu is asking Zambians to pray while he is gallavanting in foreign lands and enjoying himself with his friends. Lungu does not want Zambians to hold him to account and wants to do what he likes at the expense of the masses. This man and his friends are looting public funds and enriching himself while Zambians are in prayers. Lungu takes Zambians for fools.

  14. Is he trying to identify himself with that church? Problem is we don’t know which church he belongs to. When LPM went out of town he would look for a Baptist Church. Now our dear ECL will go to Catholic, UCZ etc. Thereby making it difficult for one to know which Church he belongs to

    • @kaluba,

      This HYPOCRITE will go to any and every church to try and dupe Zambians that his religion does not come out of JAMESONI BOTTLES!

      And blame God for all the hardships and troubles that Lungu himself and his PF stealing have caused in Zambia.

      Wake up! It is a sham. Fake. Hypocrite. Lungu is only trying to defect blame for his corruption, incompetence and theft of public resources. If he was the only one in the Church would he be praying? NO. It is for public consumption and deception only.

  17. Stealing with one hand and praying with the other. This open teeth drunk is taking the country back just like that orange ***** in the US. Why is Lungu giving our food to his puppet master Mugabe. His other two masters Banda and Museveni are pure evil. I bet Lungu’s wife is praying that she does not sleep with him anymore . Ha, ha, he had to give her her own budget for that.

    • The elections were rigged in Lusaka and Copperbelt by completely disregarding the ballot counts and ECZ coming up with made-up numbers to ensure no rerun. Fact: there’s not a single valid Gen 13 and ECZ Form 19 for any Lusaka constituency. That’s why Lungu would not allow the petition to go ahead and the Kangaroo Court to deliver judgement.

  22. Africans are just fascinating. Poverty is God’s will. Incompetence is God’s will. Mediocrity is God’s will. Everything that leads them to the precipice and sometimes pushes them over the cliff when they could have mitigated calamity is all ascribed to the way and will of God. They point to the mystery of his ways as they continue charging deeper and deeper into the darkness of their own ineptitude. So now this guy will lift off for another country and come back with pledges that will be contradicted in a few short months. That, too, will be God’s will! Continue praying, sheeple.

  23. Zambians should pray while Edward is busy globe trotting making money for himself and his friends. Edward from Egypt, should pass thru Gambia to see Yahya Jammeh and compare notes on how to deal with Presidential Petetions now that the latter has taken his Petetion to the Supreme Court of Gambia (SCG). It will be interesting to see if SCG will refuse to hear Jammeh’s Petetion. In Zambia Edward used Concourt to block the Petetion and if SCG hears Jammeh’s Petetion it will be a huge embarrassment to Zambia’s Concourt and Edward. Since the UPND Petetion has not yet been heard SADC,AU and UN should be treating Edward in the same way that ECOWAS,AU and UN are treating Yahya Jammeh. Until the Petetion is properly heard and determined Edward is illegimate and should be treated as such. AU and…

I mean we are not living in the villages where people are simply lied to. We are living in the 21st century for heaven’s sake. Enough is enough this guy has clearly failed Zambia we cannot continue to ignore this fact. He is in fact a Satan. He has no brains and this is disgusting to say the least.

Mapenzi, a defenceless lady was killed by your office when your police fired live ammunition on UPND supporters who were on a peacefull campaign rally in Chawama prior to august elections. The blood of the innocent woman is on your hands. You should ask for repentance from God and forgiveness from the family of the late Mapenzi. Whatever goes up will surely come down one day.
