President Lungu help to fit the bow hat unto the head of Zulu
A 28-year-old Lusaka youth who shocked guests at Friday’s Meet the President Gala Dinner when he outbid everything for President Edgar Lungu’s bow hat by paying K185,000 for the item says he paid the hefty price for the item because he loves the PF.
Munir Zulu outbid everyone during the glittering ceremony at the Government Complex which was graced by President Lungu with a number of PF aligned musicians performing on the night.
Zulu who lists his occupation on his social media profiles as a Contractor and Proprietor of Shareek General Dealers said he considers President Lungu as his mentor and he wanted to help the party reorganise its youth wing.
President Lungu helped Phiri fit into his new addition to the wardrobe as diners cheered on.
“Am so grateful to all those that supported my bid to buy the hat at the auction. It was not easy but for the love of pf we had to do it. To those that came with strong competition I say thanks for the good fight but we all green at the end of the day,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
He added, “So proud to wear it especially that Eagle one he had to give to me. I am Proud to be a youth and extremely humbled to be PF.”
“President Lungu is my mentor, his tenacity his humble stature is very admirable, he is a great leader… I want to strive and emulate him,” he said.
When asked about the K185, 000, Phiri responded; “it is going to a good cause, growing our youth wing is very vital for the party to stand strong. I must admit I was very impressed with the way the youth organisers put the whole event together and I was compelled to contribute to its cause.”
“This hat is my precious souvenir, it goes on my head, I actually feel like I have the President’s mind whispering in my ears when I wear it,” he said.
Meanwhile, some PF insiders have revealed that Zulu is infact State House Political Adviser Kaizer Zulu’s young brother and is normally used to front Kaizer’s many businesses.
“What we know is that the boy was just used on the night because the entire auction was stage managed to impress the Boss (President Lungu). So that was Kaizer’s money in reality,” the source said.
