 President Edgar Lungu has congratulated Zambia’s 35-year old Rugano for the positive showing in the Directors’ Fortnight category at the recently held 2017, 70th Cannes Film Festival in France.

 

President Lungu says he is delighted especially that the film was directed by a female youth with the Star of the film Maggie Mulubwa only aged nine years old .

 

This is according to a statement released to ZANIS by Special Assistant to the President for press and Public Relations Amos Chanda in Lusaka today.

 

The Republican President commended the team for their hard work and commitment to filmmaking and for positively representing the country at the highest level of the global film industry.

 

“We have no doubt that the performance of the production including the positive reviews in the international Press will bring benefits to the cast, crew and the country among them visibility, and open up opportunities for other films,” Mr Lungu stated.

 

The Republican President  underscored the need for the country to seriously tap into youth talent and ingenuity in every aspect adding that his administration is committed to changing the way local filmmaking and the film industry has been viewed in the past.

This is contained in a statement signed by the President’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, Amos Chanda.

      Visionless Lungu recently appended his signature to the AMENDED CONSTITUTION & NOT new one which states under article 35 of 1996 as amended that “notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this [amended] constitution or any other law a person who has twice been elected as president shall not be eligible for re~election to the office”. So blind Lungu is not eligible to stand in 2021 b’coz he has twice been president in 2015 & 2016~simple.
      If PF insists on Lungu as its president, so be it but the country’s constitution DOESN’T allow Changwa for a 3rd term period.
      As far as the 2016 amended constitution which was blindly signed by visionless Lungu article 106(3) states that “a person who has twice held office as president is not eligible for election as president. Lungu was…

      ….Lungu was “elected” twice in 2015 & 2016? No 3rd term, only in PF.
      So Lungu & his PF bandits must also respect article 43(2) of the constitution which demands that “a citizen shall endeavour to [among other things] acquire basic understanding of this constitution & promote its ideals plus objectives”~simple.

    This is human laundering. It won’t work to make this dictator a fatherly figure. Ask Bernadette Deka who ‘really said something,’ on Aljezera. The dictator is finished!! Gone!!!! No amount of benevolence window displaying will redeem him.
