President Lungu Briefs the Press at City Airport

REPUBLICAN President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has urged Zambians not to lose any sleep or be distracted from their way of life.

Speaking on arrival at Kasama Airport on a three day working visit to Northern Province, President Lungu said all those making calls for him to intervene in the criminal prosecution of individuals should stop because he knew the responsibilities around his Office too well and they did not include interfering with the judicial process in criminal matters.

He said Zambia as a country has the Police to investigate matters, to determine charges and to fully prosecute any criminality taken before the Courts of law.

The President said it is also up to the Judges in the Courts of law to adjudicate and preside over cases brought before them without any interference. He stated that he knew his powers too well and there is no President world over whose work include cancellation of cases before the Courts of law.

“Allow the Police to do their job. No one is above or below the law – not even myself as Republican President. When a criminal offence has been committed, it is not within the job of the President to override the due process of the law. If you commit and offence, expect the law to take its full course,” said President Lungu.

On his visit to the region, President Lungu said he was in Northern Province to physically inspect developmental projects and to listen and attend to the people’s concerns.

The Head of State warned party and government officials against overstepping their work and boundary.

“If you are a Mayor, stick to your responsibilities. The DCs should do the same. I do not want to hear that you are working chipantepante. We have development to deliver and this is the time to work not in 2021,” he said.

    • HH is possessed with the demon of destruction and pride. Look at the size of his house! If he is so high and mighty, why have a bunker to hide in?

      Also judging by the video of his wife speaking to Press shows her to be deeply brainwashed by her husband. She looks and sounds like him. And this volcano that she refers to will it erupt out of her husband’s a.ss because Zambians are not interrupting their beer drinking over HH!

    • Oh please, who has asked this aging drunk to intervene?…In his dreams yeah?!.. when he is the master minder and chief instructor to that most incompetent IG to have accidentally roamed the earth on Zambian soil. The two including Amos, and Keizer to the list are the most incompetent drunk beings to walk the corridors of power, and unfortunately, on Zambian soil.

    • That is exactly what I asked last week when Lungu was in Mongu! My question was: Is the President not going to inspect developmental projects in Mongu or Western Province since he is there? Then I realized that there were no developmental projects initiated by the PF government in Western Province! But the Litunga and Inonge Wina are very excited and loves the PF and Lungu as they love themselves. Inonge Wina, you are Lungu’s Deputy, what have got to say on this? Sesheke – Kazungula Highway needs urgent attention but there goes Lungu to Northern Province which he thinks is more important than Western Province! Bantu Bo Twatwe plus two (Southern, Northwestern, Western Provinces plus Central and the Copperbelt Provinces,) wake up and liberate yourselves.

    • Sad how Zambia has been messed up. I was in Namibia doing some consulting work, and one of the guys told me Zambians are regarded as thieves in that country. I told him, “I don`t blame you”. I scared to death to bring back my children to Zambia. Theft, tribalism, no rule of law, name it. What a country.

    • HH cannot just head towards Namibia, and force his way onto the Namibian side, without stopping at the border checkpoint, and then claim it was not me driving it was my driver.

      While his driver may be given traffic offence charges, HH will answer more serious security breach charges.

      That very act would lead to many charges on HH, because HH is fully responsible for the behaviour of his personal driver.

      So those who joke must stop and think twice, if you think HH has no case, think twice.

Mumbi Phiri, who is his whore and deputy secretary general of thr hijacked party issued the public warrant of arrest then his political adviser led the IG to cause destruction at a citizen’ s house now he is an innocent party who will not interfere with the juduciary he has destroyed. Lungu stop behaving like you are smart. All this will catch up. Enjoy your Easter as a christian.

    • TRUE @ 5.2 MULENGA.
      These equally visionless P.F cadre Keyboard warriors who blindly support on a tribal basis, even when wrong is being commited will CRY soon!
      Zanu P.F, supporters saw Mugabe commit heinous crimes against his own citizens, BUT laughed, & joked about the genocide, coz he was only maiming “The Ndebele”
      After Mugabe had finished with, & run out of Ndebele opponents, he turned his wrath on his own Shona tribesmen who years earlier had given him the Green light to state sanctioned brutality, something im seeing develop in Zambia today.
      Today Zimbabweans fill every foreign land, & guess what – The Majority are Shona ex-PF loving supporters.
      PROBLEM IS THE MUGABE GENIE IS NOW TOO BIG TO PUT BACK IN THE BOTTLE!

    YOURS ARE FEW DAYS AND NOWONDER YOU THOUGHT PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA WILL SAY LET US MOVE OUT OF ICC. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD HAVE RESIGNED ON THE TWO POINTS. 1. THE REFERENDUM 11. THE ICC MEANING YOU ARE NOT ACCEPTED BY ALL ZAMBIANS. DAYS ARE NUMBERED

The offence committed does not amount to treason. Police officers should also be furthering their studies to understand the Law better.

THOSE PLANNING FOR LUNGU ALL THESE EVIL SCHEMES ARE CROOKS AND THIEVES WHO ARE AFRAID TO LET LUNGU LOSE THE PETITION CASE BECAUSE HE IS THEIR SHIELD. HH IS INNOCENT AND THE IG SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO CALL A TRAFFIC OFFENSE A TREASONABLE CASE. REALLY LAUGHABLE SHAME ON THE LEARNED PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT US. BUT ZAMBIA SHALL BE FREE AND HH WILL RULE. THE PF S BEHAVIOUR HAS MADE HIM MORE POPULAR.

      HH is showing that he too is ready to sacrifice his freedom for zambians young democracy.

      Lungu is on a wrong plain. No matter what he does HH comes out on top.

  20. interestingly pipo don’t realize that doing evil to others will one day follow you.I would like to ask these questions and I need answers from those supporting the arrest of HH.
    1 Is he the one(HH) who was driving the vehicle because it says he was obstructing? How many vehicles were on the same convoy ?why haven’t they arrested all those in the convoy?
    2. Is obstructing treason ie overthrowing a government that’s my understandz?
    3. What was the purpose of raiding the house ?even if you don’t like HH pipo this is not correct and fair?
    4. BRE is a let down why have nt they said anything in this ,they are the ones who brought this.
    5.PIpo let us not celebrate this arrest it will being more divisions athan unity.If anything I feel PF are decampagning themselves.

Your ignorance will be your greatest fall. Mark our words. Live by the sword, die by the sword. One who uses violence can expect a violent response and outcome; it is better to try to use peaceful means wherever possible. Your time is coming very soon.

I don’t even like HH, but I will not support him. Lungu is trying to became Bashir Al Assad of Africa. They will be blood shed soon in Zambia all because an AIDS infected clueless mofon wants to destroy Zambia. Lungu will not last. Watch.

  23. No one is asking you to intervene. Why would we ask a dictator who is controlling the police to intervene? your intention to have HH arrested has become a reality. So why would we ask you to intervene. You are an illegal president anyway. You only intervene in pardoning child fiddlers like clifford dimba. You are an insecure little man with a lot of anger. Just because you were not received warmly in western province you decide to behave like an angry jealous infant and request police to arrest a man who clearly beat you at the elections. Every dog has its day. Even more popular leaders like chiluba were removed from power. that immunity you think you have will not save you when we finally prove that you stole those elections. You are a risk

  25. To e a upnd supporter one needs to drop his cognitive thinking and echoes whatever rubbish their tribal leader says. Secondly you need to sound like you are intelligent but vomits baseless arguments full of bitterness and hate. Can someone challenge me now that they drove side by side with eagle one and refused to park even after e sweeper bumped them to get off the road. If you have done it and nothing happened then hh is equally innocent. For me it’s the first time to see someone driving side by side with the presidential motorcade.

    • Ndanji & @ oval head, clearly we can see that reality of HH being in chuks is really setting in among is cult group. There is nothing constructive coming out of their bloging except spewing insults to who ever blogs to the contrary.
      We really don’t care whether they insult us all the insults in the world but the fact is that HH is suffering and if I was one of his followers I would have toned it down because their insults are not helping at all

Just be sure that you will all die, some of you won’t even reach HH’s or Edgars’ age. Take this time to do something productive for your selves and families rather than communicating useless insults about unknowns. You’ll remember this time at your final hours, and Zambia will remain.

  27. The president has lost it. He seam not to know redeem himself. These are the time when you show the nation that you are president of all, this is the time to show us that he is a humble man as he used to say, this was the best time to win some of the hearts that are not recognizing him, this the time he would have showed us that he does not hate, he is a peaceful man as he has said before. He should know that sometimes when he the president does not act things would get out of hand, and may be costly to everyone including him. I am even thinking I made a mistake voting for him.

  31. Sympathisers of UPND, instead of insulting Lungu and condemning his good Christianit, just advise HH that the Bible says obey those in Authority, you will be helping solve this problem.

    But if you will ignore when HH disobeys authority but when police enforce law and order then you complain, you will be helping amplify the problem.

    Romans 13:1-2 says:
    “All if you must obey those who rule over you. There are no authorities except the ones God has chosen. Those who now rule have been chosen by God. So those who opposes the authorities opposes leaders whom God has appointed. Those who do that will be judged.”,

    • Romans 13:4 says:
      “The authorities are God’s servants for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of rath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.”

      So, God expects everyone to honour those in authority, and those in authority to punish wrongdoers.

      So, show such scriptures to HH if he claims he is a Christian.

      In fact it is the pride of refusing to recognize Lungu as president that gave birth to hiim refusing to give way to presidential motorcade.

      But you know pride goes before the fall.

  32. Nothing is hidden under the earth and evil can not prevail over good. You may think you are clever now but God knows your evil deeds. There is no one in their right mind who can say you are not in any way interfering in the operations of the police, your cadres are openly instructing the police we are seeing all this. I don’t subscribe to any party all I know is that you are a president and therefore it calls for you to protect the interests of all Zambians regardless of any political affiliation. Surely if HH committed any offence why not summon him to the police than invading his home disturbing innocent children,wife and other relatives at home worse still breaking things,stealing yet you are the some president who claims to abide by the law. How will you feel if your family was…

  34. Sometimes it is better to say nothing than give away all clues confirmed by your spokesman’s tapped telephone conversation with IG. Always check the opposite of whatever Chagwa says. He has no love in his heart but evil schemes. He does not take criticism or opposing views kindly. He is only in power to feather his nest. He has no agenda for Zambians!

If it breaks his perverted Presidential ambition, so be it.

    At the same time in a nation of laws and not men, arrest all those eating mbeba and kolwe without obtaining license for these tasty Government trophies. Why just concerned with hyena and mukula tree?
