President Lungu
President Edgar Lungu has said that the Copperbelt Province has become the base for confusion in the patriotic Front Party in the recent past. The Head of State said that it was unfortunate that some party members particularly from the area felt they were powerful as they consider themselves as founders of the party.

“I am fed up of people continuing to talk behind each other’s backs and also with other People feeling they can manipulate others because they feel they belong to the party because of their old membership” President Lungu said.

He added that the party was founded on people and membership, therefore anyone can be appointed or elevated based on their loyalty and not on how long they have been in the party.

President Lungu was speaking in Ndola yesterday afternoon when he arrived at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe on the Copperbelt where he is scheduled to break grounds for the construction of the new Copperbelt International Airport tomorrow.

He has since called for an urgent meeting with all party official on the Copperbelt including Members of Parliament, the Central Committee, Mayors, and District Commissioners among other party Members to be chaired by party Secretary General Mumbi Phiri.

The President stated that the meeting will address the continued bickering among party officials in the province and address among other issues problems regarding Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo, Ndola Mayor, Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili and former Copperbelt minister Mwenya Musenge.

President Lungu plane touched down at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International airport 16:13 hours aboard a presidential challenger and was received by a thunderous welcome by party members who sang songs in his praise.

He was welcomed by Copperbelt Provincial Minister Bowman Lusambo, Party Secretary General Phiri, Members of Parliament based on the Copperbelt among other Ministers and party official.

The president is in the province to break grounds for the construction of the new Copperbelt International Airport tomorrow Sunday, he is also expected to attend mass in Ndola before proceeding to Chingola were he is scheduled to break ground for the construction of the Copperbelt C400 road project.

    • Well said Mr President Sir, Unity in Purpose Unity in Work…still please keep an eye and ear to the ground Your Excellency as these Top Govt officials ie Ministers continue to mislead and provide wrong advice…farmers on the Copperbelt have been dealt a heavy blow by millers, why hasn’t the price of mealie meal and cooking oil gone down despite the low buying price of soya and maize grain? Sir the people on the ground are in dire straits..life is becoming hard, road traffic police everyday mount road blocks where they will always find an excuse to stop a vehicle for money, ZRA is knocking on business houses yet big mining firms have robbed us! Please Sir hear the cries of the masses!!!!

    • I think it’s about time he took action.

      I’m glad he is fed up.

      In my opinion he is the greatest Zambian president we have ever hard.

      Humility, hardworking and easier to like.

      Thanks

    • lungu is NOT fit to be president.

      Go to SAVIOUR CHISHIMBA’S FACEBOOK page to see photos of lungu’s properties built using plundered money.

      lungu’s theft makes FTJ look like an angel.

    • Thats what a stolen residency does… you start running away from your own shadow

    • Why have you removed the most shocking part of his speech yesterday, where he said he was ready for violence. Something unheard of before.

    • Don’t wash your party’s dirty linen in public. Confront party issues at the party level. Don’t bring party fights into the public arena. That kind of behavior exposes a particular kind of childishness in you and a particular kind of immaturity in your leadership.

    • anyone can be appointed or elevated based on their loyalty?loyalty to who?lungu or pf.With this kind of mentality zambia will never develop.people should be appointed based on performance either in their individual life or society,esp.professional performance.those appointed should be adhere to the zambian constitution and not the president.zambian economy will only improve when we elect a president who can ask profound questions and who will acommodate divergent views from within cabinet and outside.otherwise tayali is spot on…DOOMED.

    • Lungu appears to be troubled mentally. Something inside is bothering him. Perharps, the truth about the 2016 elections. Why is he ever travelling and doing work minister’s or PS can do? Please go to court and prove with evidence you won and then if you did (big question mark) stay in state house and focus on actual presidential duties. Even in your own party people are begining to doubt you or where you are taking the country. Your team is full of violence, thugs, courrpt elements at each corner and any other bad word in the dictionary.

  1. if Kambwili and Musenge cannot fall in line and support the party structures, chuck them out!! Musenge lost his parliamentary seat and he is clearly showing support for upnd, let him leave. Kambwili since his sacking as minister has been working against the party and has presidential ambitions, the sooner he is booted out, the better; Elections are in 2021 and now is the time for development and work. Mr. President, it is time to use the big stick!!!

    • What work! For PF it will be talking and fighting till 2021. Attending traditional ceremonies, touring and opening toilets and malls is NOT working.

    • @ Kaputo Donkey: Your denial and bitterness has robbed you of your ability to see reality. Even if I put down what the PF has done and are doing, you will refuse. For you donkeys, this country will only change if hh is president who in your prejudiced reality will “fix everything”. Sadly the majority of Zambians simply don’t agree with you. WELCOME TO DEMOCRACY, DONKEY!!!!

  2. And Zambian taxpayers are tired of your endless petty politicking Bwana Lungu.

    We wanna hear of quality roads, better housing ,drugs at UTH , more jobs created ,better sanitation ,modern trains ,forex reserves above $5bn and less debt burden for Zambians.

  3. A true leader knows that people will always talk. A leader should never say certain things. A leader should never quarrel or to be seen to be complaining. Ukwa gave a simple lesson on leadership. He said a man should hold his manhood for urine to have direction! Unpleasant as that may sound, that is the reality about leadership. A leader should give good sense of direction. A leader must distinguish between good and bad, concentrate on the good and ignore irrelevant issues. A leader should have self-restraint and self control. A leader who wants to please everybody will end up in misery. We thought this Copperbelt trip was a working holiday but it was meant for the usual politics targeting imagined political threats – CK and Musenge. Now we know.

  4. Mr President sir; you are the president of Zambia but why do you use your party symbol always it is like telling us that you are the PF party only? just a wave will look more presidential

    • You are so right in your comment. ECL is meant to be a president for all Zambians and not just for PF. Giving the PF salute every where he goes only alienates people.

    • The Party in power forms Government – when he is dealing with Party matters he should use the Party symbol.

  5. @ilomba (MA) Is it not UPND that are in a bigger alliance with the self declared MMD president Nevers???? So that makes it UPND/MMD!

  6. There will always be differences of opinion especially in a country political pluralized like Zambia. Only dictators can classify such as bickering. Anyway, why is he scared of mentioning Chimbwili by name? To me they are both ignorant jockers?I can see Mushota’s ERECTION is still on the rampage, what manner of mtototo did this he/she goat swallow this time?

  7. Mushota why do you waste your time making such comments? I though being a Phd holder you would spend time doing constructive stuff. PF is full of confudion with no leadership.

  8. Just observe the bemba theives falling over and fighting each other for a chance to lick ediga lungus boots so he promised them a chance to loot.
    The bemba theives installed chagwa and hoped he will be a push over but he is sorting them out one by one at the same time empowering the easterners.
    I think I will now support ediga.

  9. Yeah ECL backbiting isn’t cool regardless . Whether it’s family friends or political party it just ain’t cool. People who talk to u about other pipo will talk about u to other pipo.

  10. The level of borrowing is worrying. Chipante pante kind of leadership. We need people/leaders with vision HH would have done things better way than what we are seeing.

  11. We are tired of seeing you rule illegally. We are hoping for your timely death you evil dictator

  12. You right Mr President, start with the state house officials who never want to tell you the truth of the on goings in the part and they are killing the party due to selfish needs.

  13. This Wako ni Wako and Umodzi Kumawa Dictator President is using Bembas as Condoms to justify his Rule. Lungu’s Dictatorship is anchored on Easterners like RB ,Kaizer, Mambilima , Essau Chulu, Mwanakatwe etc. Lungu should leave CK,KBF, Musenge etc. These are the genuine Greens.

  14. Mr President you know the culprits! “Perceived enemies” Why don’t you call them and talk to them…those guys are not the Copperbelt! They are just few individuals with independent minds who think and see things differently. Don’t speak in riddles….they way the PF is going the future looks shrouded!!! I can imagine the tension during that meeting! All the best!

  15. I’m also thinking Lungu using pipo like Father Bwalya and Mumbi Phiri.We pipo from north know our true leaders.Don’t touch abena kambwili mudala.kopala teinobe.If u detroy PF in coperbelt the northern muchinga and luapula is gone and part of lusaka.Watch out.We need true PF members to be in da party and not ifibena Lusambo ifyo.2021 Ba Lungu u’ll be arrested if u don’t reconcile nabena Kambwili and other PF officials.

  16. The backstabbing is also in the defence wings. Innocent well-meaning officers’ names being dragged in the mud by some named Grade 12 graduate called a commander

  17. Lungu appears to be troubled mentally. Something inside is bothering him. Perharps, the truth about the 2016 elections. Why is he ever travelling and doing work minister’s or PS can do? Please go to court and prove with evidence you won and then if you did (big question mark) stay in state house and focus on actual presidential duties. Even in your own party people are begining to doubt you or where you are taking the country. Your team is full of violence, thugs, courrpt elements at each corner and any other bad word in the dictionary

  18. Ba UPND so in your dunderheads you think that by insulting the President you are winning support??? Surely how dull can a group of people be??. The same President won in 6.5 Provinces and it is these same people who will determine whether you win In 2021 but with the hatred you are displaying you are diminishing you chances

  19. Zambians are very docile, even in the most incompetent, they see competence. Politicians just talk about sorting each other out instead of offering tangible solutions to economic hardships, housing problems, fuel prices……etc…..etc…….Let’s give chance to managers NOT cadres plizzzzz!!!!!
