President Edgar Chagwa Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has pledged support to The Democratic Republic of Congo in the electoral process to enhance its stability ahead of the elections at the end of the year.

He commended Democratic Republic of Congo’s President Joseph Kabila for sending a special envoy to Zambia for an update on the electoral process ahead of  its polls this year.

Mr Lungu says the Vice Prime Minister who is also the Foreign Affairs Minister Leonard Okitundu was sent to Zambia to update him on the state of the electoral process in his country.

Mr. Okitundu , in his message, gave a comprehensive statement on the steps being undertaken to ensure there is peace in some parts of Congo where there was instability.

President Lungu  assured of Zambia’s full support towards ensuring peace and stability in that country continues to prevail so that trade between the two countries can continue to flourish.

Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda said this in an interview with journalists at State House in Lusaka today.

      He can offer the best as he has only known winning.

      HH can also be used as an example to oppositions on how not to lose.

      A case of the kettle calling the pot black. Was the briefing necessary, really? A country awash with murderous gangs; what a waste of time

      Whilst Kabila’s dictatorship is coming to an end in Congo, it seems like Okitundu is visiting visionless Lungu to “receive” some extra “special” lessons of how to rig elections.
      LT reports that visionless Lungu has “commended Democratic Republic of Congo’s President Joseph Kabila for sending a special envoy to Zambia for an update on the electoral process ahead of its polls this year” like how Essau Chulu, Priscilla Isaacs, Chavula~ECZ & all despondent institutions which PF has abused to rig elections in 2016.
      This is now a dictatorship’s paradise & now visionless Lungu is becoming an expert like Mugabe & Museveni.
      Lungu, how much is mealie meal & where are the 500,000 jobs?

      Here’s what lungu’s script will be like:
      -Let DRC electoral commission accept results without GN12 forms
      – Send Kaizer Zulu to transport ballot boxes & GN12 forms from remote areas
      – Send Chavula to doctor incoming results. Even if he gets caught, he’ll be released.
      – Announce results from opposition strongholds & then delay results from Kinshasa (which is just 200m from Tallying centre) & cook up to better opposition totals.
      – Appoint a user-friendly Electoral commision chairman 6 months b4 elections. Let him give you 26,000 free votes from your home town.
      – Use Airforce choppers to ferry ballots. Then make stop-overs midway to doctor the results
      – Ban opposition campaigns when the president is in the area
      – Close down radio stations featuring opposition leaders
      – Send…

      The PF 2016 rigging formula will not work in DRC because people there are not docile … they ready to shed blood if necessary and they have done so in the past! The Lungu/Mugabe/Museveni type leadership cannot be tolerated there because DRC has so many War Lords that are already armed. Some are in neighbouring countries such as Rwanda and ready to take action. DRC has rare minerals that cannot be found elsewhere in the world therefore no single individual can dominate. For you PF people and your Lungu, beware that Zambia especially Copperbelt and Luapula will seriously bare any consequences of war! Those with ears should listen and hear the message!

    The recent history of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) has been one of civil war and corruption.

    Its a case of the Blind leading the Blind. What help can an Election Rigger and Law Breaker like Lungu offer to another Dictator in the name of Kabila. Lungu should choose his priorities correctly. He has the Disputed and Petitioned 2016 Election to deal with. The country is in a mess and political Tensions and disharmony is very high. Instead of seeing a log in Kabila’s eye Lungu should look into the mirror and realise how illegitimate his Presidency is . Lungu should release HH and his workers from Jail and let the Election Petition be heard in Court without further delays. Lungu is a Sadist and a hypocrite of note who pretends all is well in Zambia while threatening a State of Emergency. Lungu should put his house in order first b4 offering Kabila advice on how best to rig the…

    WHAT ADVICE CAN LUNGU GIVE? HE HAS FAILED TO ACT ACCORDINGLY IN HIS OWN COUNTRY. HE STILL NEEDS TO LET THE PETITION BE HEARD IN HIS OWN COUNTRY AND LOCKING UP HIS CHIEF OPPONENT ON A TRUMPED UP CHARGE IS HIS SOLUTION. NO SORRY HE SHOULD BE THE LAST PERSON TO GIVE ADVICE TO ANYONE. BWANA CLEAN UP YOUR OWN HOUSE FIRST. WE WOULD HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR LUNGU IF HE COULD JUST STEP DOWN AND DECLARE THAT HE HAS FAILED TO RULE OUR ONCE THRIVING NATION. HE HAS BROUGHT ZAMBIA TO IT S KNEES AND NOW WE HAVE THE CHINESE RULING US UNOFFICIALY BECAUSE OF HIS GOVERNMENT S BORROWING.

    @ Munone, what has HH got to do with this issue? why hate the man so much? is there something you know about him that we don’t? Nelson Mandela once said, “no man is born hating others, this is something people learn, if they can learn to hate, they can also be taught to love”

    DRC is a sovereign state! If DRC had proposed the same for Zambia, you would be the first ones to protest in the name of sovereignty. Don’t bring trouble between DRC and us by your dirty meddling! How can you help when you have failed to conduct credible elections in your own back yard? Or you want DRC to register PF cadres to go and vote the way you did with Malawians and DRC refugees?
