PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has laughed off those wishing him ill or retirement that he is still very energetic and will continue to govern the country.
Speaking when he addressed resident of Livingstone who came to receive him at the airport to ear Mark his state visit of the province, President Lungu who expressed Joy at being in Southern Province a perceived no go area for the Patriotic Front said he loved Southern Province so much that he is considering building a home there.
“I am happy to be here again, I enjoy being here, I will one day even build my own home here…that is how much I love this place,” said President Lungu.
And President Lungu noted that those wishing him to die so that they succeed him should reread the constitution of Zambia.
He advised that as long as God allowed he would continue leading Zambia.
“And let me tell you, I am not retiring soon, I am still around so those of you who think I am about to retire should watch this space,” he advised.
“…even those who wish me to die will not inherit because there is no room for that. If I die today Madam Inonge Wina will take over until 2021. That is what the law says.”
