President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has expressed regret over the death of several innocent lives lost in an inferno which also left many others injured at London’s Grenfell Tower on 13th June, 2017.
In a message of condolences to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Ms Theresa May, the President says he learnt with profound sorrow,the loss of so many lives and injuries suffered by survivors.
The president prayed that the Lord Almighty grants solace and fortitude to the bereaved families and wished the injured a quick recovery.

“I wish to convey, on behalf of the Government and people of the Republic of Zambia, and indeed on my own behalf, my deepest condolences to the people of the United Kingdom, and the families of the deceased during this trying period,” President Lungu said.

    • This man is using a sympathy situation in order to be accepted. Next he will be telling Zambians to pray. I really will not fall for all this, Chagwa you know!

    • Uko!

      Ba~visionless Lungu tamu lila Bana benu~Mapenzi Chibulo~ kana Bana babanenu Tata iye!

      Lungu only wants some media coverage whilst crying crocodile tears. Until the presidential petition is heard by the con~court, Lungu & PF are undemocratically, fraudulently, unconstitutionally & illegally administering the country.

      Give power to the speaker~visionless~ & leave HH alone Mr Sadist Lungu.

    • If that fire was in Zambia, pf vuvuzelas would have besieged deadNBC, yap yapping and pointing accusing fingers on upnd. Republican Congress men and their aides were shot at yesterday in the USA, if it was here pf vuvuzelas would have besieged deadNBC, issuing unpalatable shingananani uko.

      Guess that’s the difference between us and them.

  2. Ecl is illegal president according to one cretin above. We will see which president is going to pardon hh. If ecl is illegal then let’s all wait for 2021. No one should tell my president to release hh.

    • @HH OVAL HEAD,
      HH does not rely on the dictator for his freedom. Can you tell me from history which murderous dictator ever released his falsely accused victim.
      HH relies on the goodwill of Zambia’s civilised majority. Keep on dreaming and enjoy it while it lasts. The clock is slowly ticking and soon the blood-sucking despot and his blind followers will surely be treated to what they deserve, call it retribution, revenge or anything you like.

    • There is still that one unique flame of hope in our judiciary, even when Sodom and Gomorrah was so rotten to core, a unique soul came out to tell the story.

  3. ECL is a big pretender, he is failing to unity the country where there is so much hatred against innocent citizens then pretends to be nice to outsiders. God cannot be mocked, it will come to pass no matter how long it takes. Wrongs can never be right in the eyes of God.

  4. The Conservative Party is not accusing the Labour Party of the inferno(Fire) If this happens in Zambia, Some party officials will point to other tribes, political party…. Some will say they are displaced because of the fire… We are waiting to hear the arrest of the culprits of Namwala saga, Markets and other properties..
    It is interesting to hear messages of sorrow being sent to Theresa May , when your own local people who are suffering and in heavy disaster are completely ignored by the GREAT LEADER.
    I thought the colonialists are regrouping and you may have sent Kaleza (lighting) to burn their buildings…
    However, have the GREAT LEADER sent his message in vernacular otherwise he is also colonized if the message is in English….

  6. You’re just a pretender chagwa. This is the first president in the history of this great country to have some of the people recognize him. Shame on him. The other problem is that this man has no conscious.

  8. But we have a bunch of hopeless blood thirsty animals who have nothing better to do than condemn the Legally elected President of Zambia for everything! Even when such twerps as anus-lyer, deride and f00l and co catch prostrate cancer, BP, diabetes they will blame the President! You sa.tanic cretins should get a life! Your sa.tanic Human Hyena is cursed because of such lowlifes as you! There is a tragedy in the UK our President is conveying condolences and you want to cry foul??? Get a life hopeless mangwams!

    • I DOUBT IF UPND WILL EVER BE IN POWER WITH SUCH HATE AND BITTERNESS. ZAMBIANS CAN SEE THROUGH YOUR SMALL HATE AND BITTER BRAINS (IF EVER YOU POSSESS ANY). NO POSITIVE THINKING ZAMBIAN, (AND THEY ARE IN THE MAJORITY), WOULD RISK VOTING FOR A BUNCH OF HATE BITTER CROOKS WITH INTENT TO RE-AUCTION ZAMBIA.

  9. Lungu Will Never Cease To Amaze Me.
    He Has Always Been Sending Messages Of Condolences To The Uk When They Have A Traggedy.
    But No One From Uk Not Even The Office Of Their Diplomat Has Ever Conveyed A Message Of Condolences When Zambians Are Dying Like Flies On Zambian Roads.
    Even Himself He Has Never Taken Such Moments To Declare Them For National Mourning.
    He Just Want To Be Heard Pa BBC World That He Is Like A Sheep Meanwhile Inside He Is Like A Wolf.
    Shame!!!

    • ECL DOESN’T NEED INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION (WHO BY THE WAY RECOGNISED HIM AFTER THE 2016 ELECTIONS). HE NEEDS ZAMBIANS RECOGNITION IN ORDER FOR HIM TO RULE ZAMBIA. HH CAN NEVER WIN ELECTIONS IN ZAMBIA FOR THE SAME REASON OF SEEKING INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION, FIRST. AS IF THEY THEY TAKE PART IN VOTING IN ZAMBIA.

  10. If anyone ever wondered whether or not Lungu is leadership material or not, here is your answer:-.

    A number of Countries are responding to this London Tower Fire tragedy by INCLUDING a message to their own citizens within their respective Countries, explaining and reassuring them what they have done/are doing to prevent a similar tragedy locally. Make no mistake, his London tragedy is a warning shot wherever there are tall buildings throughout the World, BUT LUNGU’S MESSAGE IS MUTE ON THE SUBJECT OF SAFETY WITHIN ZAMBIA. So, what warning does he want before he can warn Zambians to check and ask how safe is Findeco House for example??? What fire drill is in place in all tall buildings in Zambia??? But nothing. He is mute.

    Additionally, there has been troubling death rates at…

  11. Cont’d…
    ‘… death rates at UTH Lusaka, there has been troubling Bus accidents on roads in Zambia lately resulting in a spike in road accidents, but Lungu is mute, because Zambian deaths are not high profile on international news. The moment deaths occur here in UK, he suddenly finds his voice. He has no shame. Zambian lives do not matter to him until some European or other foreign leader tells him. This is your answer.

  12. My humble message to Engineering Institution of Zambia and Zambia Bureau of Standards.

    Food for thought to EIZ, ZBS, to all Civil and Structural Engineers in particular, and all Professional Engineers in general in Zambia.
    The tragic manner the London Grenfell Tower fire spread so quickly to all upper floors should serve as a warning shot to all of us in the profession, irrespective of where we are located on this planet. Let us learn as much as we can from this as we follow investigations into the design, construction, material spec, codes of practice used….etc, up to the conclusion.

  13. How about expressing some sadness over fellow Africans dying in Somalia? A restaurant was bombed yesterday in Mogadishu.
    I didn’t hear sympathy for the 46 who died a week ago in an accident in a Zambia bound bus in Zimbabwe.

    • IF YOU ARE BLINDED AND DEAFENED BY YOUR TRIBALISM I DON’T THINK YOU COULD BE ABLE TO READ AND HEAR SUCH SYMPATHIES. EXPRESSION OF SYMPATHY IS NOT FOR ONE TO BE HEARD OR SEEN DOING SO. IT’S A PERSONAL FEELING TO SUCH TRAGEDIES. TRIBALISM IS DRIVING YOU TO ANOTHER LEVEL BADALA.

  14. Lungu is a hypocrite and he did not say what has been written; it was written for him; he has never been sad over the deaths of zambians such as Mapenzi by his PF police; he has persecuted HH with no sadness;

  15. We should declare “No Go areas for Lungu” country-wide.
    He is an insane megalomaniac.

  16. Londoners do not appreciate your sympathy Mr Masquerade. They can move on without your crocodile sympathies. What heart do you have for anybody when you are brutalizing you own fellow Zambians for nothing? Take your sympathies to your Father the devil.
