President Edgar Lungu has dismissed reports that Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila will be dismissed from his party position. President Lungu said that he will not dismiss the Secretary General because he is happy with the way he is reorganizing and instilling discipline in the ruling party.

“Davies Mwila is not going anywhere. He is staying with me. I like the way he is working. We need to have discipline in the party” said Lungu.

President Lungu reiterated that PF members who stood against and supported other candidates and political parties have been pardon. He explained that the general amnesty given to erring PF members does not entail that they will revert to their previous positions of authority but will instead remain ordinary party members.

Meanwhile, the President has reiterated his earlier statement that he is not imposing himself on the ruling Patriotic Front in his Presidential bid for the 2021 general elections .

ZANIS reports that President Lungu said the PF constitution and amended republican constitution allow him to stand and seek a further fresh mandate.

Speaking in an interview before departure from Accra, Ghana for Lusaka, President Lungu rubbished assertions that he is not eligible to stand and seek re-election as republican president .

The Head of State also disagreed with people who think that it was too early for him to announce his candidature for the 2021 general elections.

“Those with the misconception that the law doesn’t allow me stand in 2021 should put that to rest because the law, both in the party and republican constitution allows me”

He urged people to stop paying attention to political comedians and instead rally behind his government as it works round the clock to improve the welfare of Zambians.

President Lungu said the declaration of his candidature is meant to give direction to where he wants to steer the ruling patriotic party.

“We are supposed to point direction to which you want to steer your political party. So am giving direction to my party that come 2021, I am available,” he said.

The President added that “Those with the misconception that the law doesn’t allow me stand in 2021 should put that to rest because the law, both in the party and republican constitution allows me”.

Mr Lungu wondered why people are so concerned about PF when a named opposition political party has refused to go for a convention to choose new leadership.

President Lungu who is also PF Party President said the PF will hold a convention and members will be allowed to contest for any position including challenging him for the party presidency.

He explained that his presidential bid will in no way destruct anyone from performing their tasks of developing the country.

The President has since arrived in the country and met at the Airport by the Vice President Ms Inonge Wina and other senior Government officials.

    • Jesus is not for the protection of crooks and thieves like Lungu. In fact Jesus was against charlatans and bakaponya who he chased out of the Temple.

    • I think Davies Mwila is a very wrong SG. The way he spoke on PFNBC today was really that of a cadre and not a Party’s CEO. That’s why he can’t go anywhere. He is lowly educated and thinking. He can only be in PF where even thugs claim to have a home. Can someone kindly enlighten me on the education level of this guy. Does he have a Grade 12/ Form 5 certificate? How could he have lost to an independent at a time he was Home Affairs minister? He must be extremely dull.

    • As if you needed any reminder that PF now truly belongs to Lungu and he can fart and crap on it if he wants and you can do nothing about it. Zambians have to stop him from doing that to Zambia as well.

    • I thought Davies Mwila is PF?

      Why are UPND cadres all over this story?

      I thought UPND supporters should be discussing and resolving why HH has failed 6 times?

      Are they interested in ever wining elections?

    • When you are mediocre, you keep company of very mediocre people. You get rid of all potential threats and keep retarded people as your special advisers.
      PF days are short numbered, their own nature of strife will consume them.

  2. Is this the same Davies Mwila who is disclosing disciplinary issues between Chishimba Kambwili and Nathan Chanda, these are administrative issues you don’t go on TV and say Chishimba accused Nathan that he is the one who instigated his dismissal. You don’t disclose anything, that is discussed in doors. This is still a family matter unless you guys have already made up your minds

  3. Lusaka Times bloggers. President Lungu appointed Davis Mwila to appease Luapula and to some extent northern province. Kambwili would have been the president’s biggest challenge for presidency, but alas that man sold Lunshya gold course for goat grazing. Kikikikikiki even wording it like that still makes me laugh.

    • It is called strategy, president Lungu shall look more humanistic than HH, or my president Nawakwi if the do not go for conventions. Zambian mindsets are changing, information is ready at hand on phones now. Heed my words opposition, we need new people to lead these opposition parties. Our Nawakwis are letting us down.

  5. @ Bucktooth thanks for reminding us about why your uncle Hungry Hyena and his partner in crime GBV are cursed – they are both known crooks and conmen that even today have not changed their evil ways, you as one of their evil disciples will equally receive your fair share of the bitter ration. In PF those that have been found wanting are being removed systematically whereas you in the United Party for National Dunderheads continue to carry known wifebeaters, Zamtroop and privitisation crooks plus hard core thugs! Cretins!

  6. Mr president the opposition is refusing on the party level which won’t affect us zambians as we are not UPND. But for you to stand again we need the zambian constitution to explain to us. UPND and FDD can do whatever they want and it won’t affect us as a nation, but if you stand and we not backed by the constitution, Zambians will be affected. Please tell,the nation on this part where in the constitution you’re allowed to stand and am going to vote for you,but if the constitution doesn’t allow you then am sorry don’t even try.

    • @Janet Mumbi, first of all me being a senior blogger (over 5 years on this site) plus ex-service man that has served in several capacities with honour and diligence you need to read in-between the lines to understand what I’m talking about. If you can’t you and the vocal majority of numbskulls on this site such as newcomers of the likes of bucktooth, Nez, spaka etc are lost souls destined for a shoel of ignorance.

I’ve been here before you even knew what Lusaka times was mwana, I believe those days you were collecting the bull balls from your uncle Hungry Hyena’s farm. I do enjoy seeing blood thirsty animals hang themselves so please here is more rope..

  8. His Excellent Chagwa Lungu sets the pace and everybody has to catch up. I like this, the whole opposition UPND just has to wait for their Excellent to speak before they can unlock their mouths. But then what else can they talk about if His Excellent does not give them a topic?!!!

  10. 90% of all those who support upnd do so on tribal lines.otherwise,upnd would not allow HH a loser to continue leading them!sadly for them PF is still very strong in 6.5 provinces so in 2021 HH will 100% lose to PF once more!!!if am a upnd cadre,i cant even vote in 2021 with HH on upnd ticket because you cant keep on going into final games(elections) with a same losing team(HH) then expect to win,its impossible!!!you need to hire a new coach and quality players for a soccer team to start winning big games!!BUT UPND DO NOT KNOW THIS FACT!!

  12. Yes they are staying together because they are homosexuals. Davis and lungu are in a relationship. LUSAKA TIMES WHY HAVE YOU FAILED TO ANNOUNCE THE BEST BLOGGER. WHAT ARE YOU SCARED OF. WE DEMAND YOU RELEASE THE RESULTS. WHY DID YOU WASTE PEOPLE TIME VOTING IF YOU WANTED A PARTICULAR PERSON TO WIN. LET ME WARN YOU THAT THE LONGER YOU TAKE TO ANNOUNCE THE MORE CURSES YOU ARE BRINGING ON YOUR FAMILIES AND SHORTENING THEIR LIVES. DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU.

  13. How can a democrat defend an unelected SG? PF is now a one man Party. All office bearers will be appointed by the violent and Visionless Lungu. With this kind of dictatorial leadership PF will die with Lungu. Members are saying the terms of Members of the Central Committee have long expired so lets have an Elective Convention. When is the Elective Convention? Lungu was in Democratic Ghana for 3 days so what did he learn from the peaceful hand over of power from John Mahama to Akufo-Addo? Events in Gambia were topical in Ghana so what is Lungu’s take on the Election Dispute in Gambia?Ecowas recognises and accepts that Jammeh has a Constitutional Right to petition the Election Results in the Gambia Supreme Court. Does Lungu and SADC accepts and recognise that HH & GBM have Constitutional…

    • Ask and it shall be given to you=KNOWLEDGE
      Seek and you shall find- KNOWLEDGE
      Knock and the door will be opened for you-KNOWLEDGE
      The Constitution of the PF bestows power on the party president to appoint the SG.
      So if ECL is happy with Mwila, who are you to challenge him when he is protected by the constitution?

  15. Lungu will die soon. There is no way people can complain about one ugly person this much. Lusaka times continues to be bought and publish a hundred Lungu articles in a day. And pf cadres here of course see nothing wrong with this. That is why Zambia can’t develop with such dull people in government. We hope Lungu learns a big lesson and feels the pain of Zambians. Even a bullet to his legs could teach him to stop travelling irrelevantly

  16. @Zimba( real name Hamusonde moono),please keep quiet because your party upnd is the worst when it comes to matters to do with democracy.upnd had a last tonga convention in 2006 where almost all top party positions were given to tongas.all these other upnd leaders we see today such as gbm,masebo,guy scott,etc are given their posts by HH alone.so upnd and hh are known dictators in Zambia today!!!have you ever heard hh talk about a convention?never.thats why he has been cheating his blind followers about petitioning 2016 elections to icc,etc to buy time so that upnd cadres cant ask about the convention!!!SO LEAVE ECL AND PF ALONE AND FOCUS ON YOUR TONGA PARTY UPND!!!

  18. ANTONIO MWANZA OBSERVES THAT :

    Zambia is the best country to rule. There is no pressure. It doesn’t matter whether you perform or not; whether you steal public resources and abuse your authority no one will take you to task.

    Anyone who demands for transparency and accountability; anyone who demands for equal rights and justice; anyone who demands for the rule of law and competent management of national affairs is labelled bitter, jealousy and tribal by the very people who are oppressed, abused and are victims of theft and corruption. It is indeed good to be a leader in Zambia.

  19. WHETHER LUNGU IS ELIGIBLE OR NOT IS IN QUESTION. HOWEVER KAMBWILI IS DEFINITELY ELIGIBLE SO HE HAS THE RIGHT TO CHALLENGE LUNGU. PF HAS LOST DIRECTION AND MWILA IS JUST MAKING ISSUES WORSE. IF PF MEMBERS WANT KAMBWILI THEN KAMBWILI IT WILL BE.

  20. *GHANA’S PRESIDENT FIRES COMMUNICATION FOR SPEECH PLAGIARISM*

    President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has fired his Communications Director apparently, for plagiarism of his inaugural speech and for causing great international embarrassment to the new Head of State.

    Videos showing President Addo delivering his inaugural speech now discovered to be a work of Plagiarism from two USA past Presidents, has gone viral.

    An announcement stated that the Communications Director, Eugene Arhin was relieved of his duties.

    The inaugration speech has become a pun of media jokes and split screens have been made showing Addo repeating the words of President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton.

    Earlier Eugene Arhin, Communications Director at Golden Jubilee House issued a…

  22. But ba Davies Mwila, You can’t be saying on the media that there is a disciplinary hearing because Kambwili said this over Nathan Chanda. Just say there will be disciplinary hearing because one member is aggrieved over the other or just saying Nathan is aggrieved over some words uttered by Kambwili. You will divide your party with such administration, this is an administrative issue and keep it out of the media please

  26. EDGAR IS RIGHT SO CK SHOULD LEARN A LESSON
    =================
    BUT HE IS RIGHT, THE PRESIDENT IS RIGHT – FOR NOW HE HAS A 5 YEAR MANDATE AND SO FAR, 4 YEARS TO GO. SO ALL THOSE TRYING TO GO INTO AN EARLY CAMPAIGN NOW MAY RISK SUSPENSION LET ALONE EXPULSION. YOU KNOW HOW ZAMBIAN POLITICS PLAY OUT.
    SO FAR GBM, MULENGA, MILES, KASEBA, SHINONO, SIMUUSA OUT OF THE PF PICTURE, WE HAVE LUBINDA AND SOME NEW INDIVIDUALS WHO MAKE EMERGE AND JOIN THE CAMPS AT THE PF 2019-2020 CONVENTION. REMEMBER YOUNG SAMPA CAME BACK TO PF AFTER A UPND LESSON. SO KASHIMBA CHIMBWILI AKA CK SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT IT’S NOT AUTOMATIC. IT’S AN UPHILL BATTLE.
