PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has said that he was sworn to defend life and property as a primary responsibility.

Speaking when he unveiled a $548 million ZCCM-IH Cement Plant , the president said that that he will not tolerate irresponsible behaviour that undermines business confidence.

“I am sworn to defend life and property. That is my primary responsibility as President. When we build like this we shall not allow lawless individuals to take us backwards,” President Lungu said.

“Investors believe in us, we believe in them too and that is why we are resolute on maintaining and improving the business operating environment.”

He stressed that Zambia is safe for business and also safe for law abiding citizens.

President Lungu noted that the measures he has taken to curb acts of economic sabortage should only worry wrong doers.

The head of state who is also party President noted that the Patriotic Front is a pro poor government committed to creating tangible wealth and jobs for many Zambians in line with its manifesto.

The President said that the commissioned $548 million project in conjunction with Sinoconst of China will increase competition in the previous monopolized industry and further stabilise cement prices and a desired drop in prices.

The commissioned plant will also have two 20 mega watts coal fired thermal power plants to power the facility and the surplus power will be sold to Zesco thus cushioning Zesco’s stress.

Meanwhile, NEELKANTH Chairman Mr Patel has praised President Edgar Lungu’s continued zeal to maintain peace and order in the country noting that it is the backbone of every nations development.

Speaking during the launch in Ndola, Mr Patel, noted that it is the continued peace and serenity that has continued to attract them as investors.

“Today we are commissioning this project because of the good investment policy and the continued peace in the country if Zambia was not peaceful we wouldn’t be setting up such structures,” Mr Patel said

Mr Patel also thanked President Lungu for gracing the event noting that it assures governments support to the private sector.

“Your Excellency your vision to better the lives of every Zambian especially the rural section is being seen through you robust support in various projects across the country that are in the rural part of the country, and the people of Masaiti are happy because the establishment of this company will help in bettering their lives through employment creation especially for the youths in this area,” Mr Patel said.

“Your Excellency Sir setting up this company will also generate forex as Zambia will no longer need to export copper to make cables but will begin to produce cables locally and will be exporting finished products, sir this company will be producing about 2000 metric tones of copper cables which is a good number to export as a finished product.”

And Copperbelt Provincial Minister Bowman Lusambo has thanked Neelkanth copper cable company for helping government in realising the vision to industrialise the rural part of the country.

“It’s amazing to see that the private sector has come on board in helping government realise the vision of having an industrialised economy and country because it’s only through such the country will develop at a faster rate,” said Lusambo.

  1. Anyone saying Lungu is a dictator? It is UPND supporters that would turn our country to dictators HH Shame on you UPND for trying to ruin our peaceful and beloved Zambia

    • Who ever gave Dr. Lusambo and Dr. Kambwili their PhDs should give this man also a PhD in “Threats but No action.” Welcome to the club Dr. Lungu. When he retire he can teach at Lilayi Training College.

    • YOU’RE THE TRUE SON OF THE LAND – THE UNDETERRED PATRIOT
      =========================================
      Yes you swore to protect every Zambian, including the lost sons of the land UPND folks. No amount of Neo Simutanyi, Fred Mmembe, Hakainde Hichilema, Geofrey Bwalya Mwamba, Guy Guy, Nervious Nevers, Gen. Miyanda, Venon Mwanga and other hidden crooks should deter progress. After all is said and done, Zambia should be preserved. You have but only limited time to prove your ability to transform Zambia. Yes that is want we want, launching of new projects, projects that will uplift the lives of the Zambian citizen. We know that you will not rule forever, so beat your drum the best you know how. KK, FTJ, LPM and RB beat theirs in fashion. GO ON SON OF MAN! BEAT THOSE DRUMS!

    • Not warnings again!? We were so proud of Lungu program on copperbelt, and we didn’t expect threats at anyone.
      We hope he will walk a long distance with Catholics tomorrow without insulting or threatening anybody.

    • Kunkha mulilo abana balyenshima. Eyes transfix on the big things for the common good of mother Zambia. Liberal Politics is never short of deviants thriving on acts of aberration to derail a working administration. Deviation schemes that culminate into Government failure, always turns into expendable political capital against the ruling administration disarm and neutralize them with delivery of landmark and capital projects across the country. Such is what matters to the Zambian masses. We got your back all the way.

    • Chagwa, Chagwa, Chagwa, how many times have I called you? The reason why there is misbehaviour in the country is not because there are opposition parties. Opposition parties have always been there since 1991. The reason there is misbehaviour is because you tolerate indispline especially to anyone wearing PF regalia and punching the air with a fist. The IG, and all law enforcement officials are now castrated.

    • Cont…
      When your leadership is monolineal and only knows how to frustrate the UPND, your entire presidency is in shambles. You have turned the State machinery into agents of UPND suppression. They can’t even investigate issues without trying to link them to UPND. Objectivity is lost. No one has been arrested or charged for arson because you are directing the police towards the UPND. They have tapped the phones and are listening to conversations hoping to catch one to no avail. Lusambo said he knows who is doing this, it is PF. But the police cannot move to arrest them.

    • Cont…
      Listen to calls and the still voice in your head. Things are not right. You cannot force matters and think by saying UPND are perpetrators them they will turn to be one. You have tried all these moves from the campaign times and severally you have been proved wrong. You have tried to provoke the UPND but failed to cause them to loose their longsuffering. This quality is God given. God is protecting the nation and in the end you will just hurt yourself. All this misbehaviour talk has three fingers pointed back at you. You are the greatest playboy Zambia has had for a leader.

    • Lungu is finally cracking his whip! About time. You can’t rule a country with your heart, it has to be with your head to save the greater good.

    • Crack the whip on you Nubian princess, Lungu is the weakest leader the country has ever seen and karma is catching up to him. You can be that cruel and expect everything to go well for you. Barely one year you already being being called a dictator and endorsing yourself for ICC prosecution. He is getting meaner and meaner by the day, we need to hook him up with blac chyna he might be depressed, all that comes from his mouth is sort this on, that one no love at all or uniting words.

    • Clearly Lungu thinks he will be president forever. Lungu please know that office of Zambia president belongs to Zambians not Lungu. Be reminded as well that the country belongs to all not Lungu. How do you rush to declare a state of emergency even with evidence. The army should be the ones coming out with a statements indicating the need for such an action. You are trying to cover up your insecurity over a stolen election

    • FLASHBACK: HOW LUNGU STOLE ZCCM-IH FOR HIMSELF

      Meanwhile, UPP leader Saviour Chishimba says his party is investigating the irregular sale of the 17% stake in ZCCM-IH, to an unknown Israeli Company called Sapir Capital Group.

      He said investigations so far have revealed that the Israeli company in question does not even have a proper street address.
      He said a firm with such offices cannot buy ZCCM-IH.

      “We are still left to wonder as to the real purpose of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu’s tourism in Israel. UPP verily believes that the trip was primarily undertaken to seal such an irregular deal. It’s customary by corrupt African leaders to use proxies as a way to plunder public resources,” he said.
      “Worse still, we, in the UPP, are astounded that SAPIR only acts as an agent and…

    • CONT’D…

      “Worse still, we, in the UPP, are astounded that SAPIR only acts as an agent and merely conducts public/private debt/equity offerings which are made available to SAPIR’s Investors who then individually determine whether they wish to invest in an offering,” Mr Chishimba said.

    • A company with offices at Ashdod, 7752303, 6 Sderot Yerushalaim, Israel cannot buy Government’s stake in ZCCM-IH which was sold for a joke of $100 million. WAKE UP SLEEPY ZAMBIANS, WAKE UP DWANZY ZAMBIANS, WAKE UP DOCILE ZAMBIANS.
      “Is $100 million worth the following shareholding of ZCCM-IH?
      20% in Kansanshi mine; 10% in Mopani mine;
      20% in Lubambe mine; 15% in NFCA PLC mine;
      15% in Chibuluma copper mine;
      10% in Chambeshi Metals;
      20% in CNMC Luanshya mine;
      15% in Maamba coal mine and Thermal Power Plant;
      20% in Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC);
      100% Ndola Lime; 50% in Kariba Minerals Limited;
      10% in Nkana Alloy Smelting Co Ltd; and
      10 % Investrust Bank Plc.”

    • And talking about the burning of city market, why do UPND supporters say the state of emergency is not the solution but dialogue.

      Dialogue with who, the criminals? Does UPND know them? What are you going to discuss with the criminals?

      Again they are saying the solution is hearing the petition, according to them once the petition is heard then all subbotage like the city market one will stop.

      Are they saying the people carrying subbotage are the petitioners?

      Are they saying that it is the petitioners responsible for the series of subbotage we have been experiencing?

    • @ Advice, you are trying hard to see such requests from UPND. No you have started hearing voices. You really want UPND to confess to sabotage. But how can they when it is PF burning down the country to force in the SOE?

    • After more than 50 years of independence we do not have a single Zambian capitalist? Emerging Zambian capitalists are playgrounds for ZRA, while crooked capitalists from some dubious parts of the planet don’t pay convincing taxes. I don’t know what country we will be living for our grandchildren but I know that it will be difficult to convince them that we used to be an independent country.

  2. The only thing undermining business is YOU Lungu and your worthless Minions. You are destroying Zambia with your dictatorship, but remember this. YOU WILL NOT LAST as justice stinks.

    • Lungu, Lungu, Lungu mwana wakwitu. Ukukumba vichi? What are you looking for? You cannot keep fighting what is right and replacing it by your personal will. You listen to Mumbi Phiri, Kaizer Zulu, and Amos Chanda. None of these were elected by the people. You appointed them. They have no allegiance to the people but you. Only you. But you my friend, you are answerable to us. And everything that the trio are doing is on your head. They are turning you into a Zombie. They want to turn the country into Zombieland. Your threats amount to nothing because you know who is misbehaving, – PF cadres.

  3. OK good afternoon zambians, my name is chlka1a lungu. I decided to over rule the rule of law by illegally inaugurating myself even after a petition was lodged against my disputed election. I then became surprised when the majority of the country did not recognise me. I still led the country with disappointing results where i saw the dilapidation of the rule of law and lack of security in the country. This led to a fire which has burned poor peoples sources of income. I then decided to issue a state of emergency which undermines business confridence. Now am tell you that i will not tolerate behaviour that undermines business confidence… do you see how retarded and mad i am? from now on call me chofunta lungu.
    EC lungu

    • @Nez It is very clear that you’re hurt EL that is the head of state. You’re full of nothing but hurt and hurt. I feel for you. One day you will hang yourself because EL will continue to be the head of state, recognized by the the international community and the true Zambians. Whether you call Lungu 3 times or 100 times Lungu is the head of state and not any other person. Get it into your head and move on. That’s why you’re hiding in U.S. so that you continue saying evil words. Come to your country and issue such useless statements if you will not join your president behind bars. Let your month speak life even to your enemies. Whatever you say towards Lungu will come back to you. Be careful

  5. Thats Zambians for you…they see Dangota’s business plan and copy it. Now they will try to muscle him out by giving all kinds of tax and fuel discounts to this company!!

  6. President Edgar Lungu should reduce on those threats and start taking actions!!many blacks never believe in threats but actions.
    This is the route our ZP have also taken which never result into anything serious.
    WORDS WITHOUT ACTIONS LEAD TO NOTHING!!
    START TAKING ACTIONS AND AVOID THOSE THREATS AS WE ARE TIRED OF THEM!!

  7. You are doing well Your Excellency by locking up misfits like Akainde Ichilema AKA Kaponya (HH). Safeguard our economy from these saboteurs and miscreants. Kudos

    • The UPND low life Akainde and Mutinta thought a volcano would erupt and lead him to State House in the confusion. He has been tamed now and this is a good thing.
      Hichilema’s right hand is now his new best friend while Mutale Nalumango takes steady and mature control of UPND.
      I rose this morning to the fresh air smell in Makeni and birds singing. A pompous Hakainde wakes up to the smell of poo everyday. Had Hichilema grown beyond U5, he would have avoided life behind bars.
      All he needed was to mature. He can learn a thing or 2 from Madam Nalumango. Her pronouncements are well balanced.

    • UPND wants (HH) to be released immediately without due process of the Courts. Yet they want our democratically elected President to be declared winner by the Courts?

      What kind of warped thinking is this?

      Remember UPND that only ECZ can declare the winner of a presidential election.

      Sabotage will only make things worse for your Kaponya god

    • When is the official beheading/hanging at Mukobeko? Are citizens going to be allowed to witness the beheading?

      #HangHim
      Behead (HH)

    • There are a thousand ways to secure and safeguard our economy and incompetence is surely not one of them.

  8. Just yesterday it was IMF and investors can go to hell if they so wish, today investors are welcome , Where ever all the money SATA left has gone one wonders! Too many irrelevant trips abroad which do not add any value to our economy. Foreign leaders are being feted in zambia at huge economic cost to our country. Sata never never bothered about about all these wastages. It was always ZAMBIA first. We are not criticizing for the sake of it BUT its because something somewhere is NOT right…..

  9. Too much of anything is not good! It’s too much of threats now. Love your enemies and do good to all. Make peace Bwana Chagwa! You don’t fight fire with fire. That doesn’t work! Love is what builds a nation not threats! Please reconsider your posture on these matters! We have absolutely no iota of proof on the actual cause of that City Market fire unless there is CCTV footage you have not shared with the public. Going the way of SOE is fatal for this economy. Even the investors praising you today may start cursing when the full impact of this SOE takes full effect. It’s good you have flagged this off but reconsider the SOE thing. All Zambians will be losers at the end of the SOE! One Love!

  10. Is it realy true that the market was burnt by saboteurs. All indications point that pf could be behind the city markt fire.how?the police ig told us after the ndola fire to expect more fires. The pf leader has rushed to conclude that its the opposition yet no none frm oposition was caught. The pf leader has also rushed to declare state of emergency. The fire was done by pf leaders.

  11. The economic colonization of Zambia by Chinese and Indians continues .Meanwhile ,the PF party has been undermining business confidence since 2011.
    Kwacha = devalued
    Inflation = sharply up
    Foreign reserves = down.
    Economic growth = down by half.
    Foreign debt = 50% up.

  12. How can democratic freedoms undermine business confidence ??

    Just say you can not operate in a free democratic society lungu.

    You PF thugs are terrorising anyone not PF.
    You are a dictator.

  13. Lungu why are you afraid of the opposition petition ???

    If a suspected rapist refuses a DNA test , he is afraid of something…..

    • I have on several occasions corrected you on your meaningless conjecture, but unfortunately just like your flock, simple logic is so hard to comprehend. That is why people will be very scared to hand you power.

    • One nation

      Simple Conjectures relate to real life…..people can relate to….if a suspected shop lifter refuses to be searched. . ..or if a suspected drunk diver refuses a beatherlizer test……it is very simple….some thing is wrong…….same lungu refusing to UPND petition….some thing he is hiding…..simple.

    • Add the fact lungu would rather be called a theif and rule over a divided country than just let the opposition get on with their petition and make a fool of them selves, he is hiding some thing behind ac14 day technicality as if 14 days will change the numbers or evidence…..

    • @ One Nation

      Instead of repeating “at nauseam” new-born baby story, open your eyes to the world and learn basic tenants of what is the rule of law, rule of natural justice and constitutionality in the democratic society.
      Until then, you and your cohorts will be nothing more than complacent ignorant and uneducated slaves at the service of different master.

  14. This is a another great development Mr President Sir and a job very well done! However Sir, despite all these great investments coming in we are still lagging behind in many areas- we need greater fiscal discipline on the side of govt officers- we need top officers to forego their meaningless allowances and luxury SUVs that are a big drain on the State coffers! We need to do away with some govt staff who are no better than ghost workers because they are non performers and are never found in their offices!If we can do this we will create more confidence in the civil service and save billions of kwacha!

    • Looks like this 2020vision has not been bribed with a SUV……..just keep dancing and sontaring like oval head and njimbu and Mr terrible ..and you might get a contract when IMF manee comes right.

    • Looks like this 2020vision has not been bribed with a SUV……..just keep dancing and sontaring like oval head and njimbu and Mr terrible ..and you might get a contract when IMF manee comes right.

  15. Clearly Lungu thinks he will be president forever. Lungu please know that office of Zambia president belongs to Zambians not Lungu. Be reminded as well that the country belongs to all not Lungu. How do you rush to declare a state of emergency even with evidence. The army should be the ones coming out with a statements indicating the need for such an action. You are trying to cover up your insecurity over a stolen election

  16. He thought the presidency came with absolute power, Now he’s found out it’s not all about power and since he lacks the wisdom to govern, he has to grab power and power that does not belong to you will kill you.
    All he’s rants about the opposition are a reflection of his own failed presidency.

    • Very true! Power that does not belong to you will kill you. Power belongs to the people! Since the constitution is suspended, it is anyone’s game. Jungle Law rules! We still have a small window of opportunity to deal with some issues more rationally. The SOE is a double edged sword! Don’t play with fire! Even ashes can burn when you don’t know the ways of fire. Samva anzake anamva nkhwangwa ili mu mutu!

  17. One ECL!!!I can guarantee you my fellow Zambians that this is a new no -nonsense President Lungu, that is firm yet fair, tolerant yet assertive!

    Many Zambians are happy with this strong leadership we are seeing!

    My President come 2021 I can guarantee you my fellow Zambians we are winning again! Aluta Continua…

    • Obviously you want the status quo to continue!
      And you are typing from your office at the Zambian Embassy on company time.

    • 2020vision

      Remind us of your prediction on foringne exchange , cost of living and price of meal meal again ???

    • @ Spaka like lilo

      I my memory serves me well, the blind imbec1le professed meale meal @ K35; USD 1.00 to K 4.00, cost of leaving to be halved and his inbreed genetically induced imec1lity to be cured by 6 bottles of Jamesson

    • @katombonoko mwaiche as you wish others to die may your evil plans come back to you, I’m a free citizen I comment as and how I feel, some of us have been in service of the nation before your mothers had their first orgasms so wipe your oily an.us before you vomit.
      @wanka if I recall some of you bloodthirsty sa.tanists predicted the kwacha at 100 to the USD??? So who has a higher margin of error you dunderhead??? Do you understand what margin of error is? Its the same as the size of your tiny brain in comparison to your big thick skull..
      @flea keep on living in the hairy arse.wh.ore of your dunderhead tribal Lord and you’ll remain just that a brainless flea.

  18. He’s friend trump found out the hard way and is now content with just twitting.
    All you pf and upnd cadres should know that the presidency is not an office for power, it’s for the wise and strategic thinkers.
    There are three branches of government and power belongs to the people- stolen power is lethal.

    • How can you exp[lain that simple truth to the uneducated slaves whose life-hood depends on handouts of theirs masters?

  19. The goodness about UPND and its irresponsible supporters are that they have allowed us through this blog and Dog Watchers in Zambia to learn about the distractive tendencies and beliefs of this regional grouping body! Zambia must never allow it any near the corridors of power. Read the minds of all its supporters. They are members of Free Mansions! They will give you one mansion!

    • @ Sharon

      As much you are against “Free Mansions” (use spell check imbec1le), your “humble”; “visionary”; “anointed” and convicted embezzler master and his “advisers” worship the “eye”

  20. Please put them where they belong! We have enjoyed peace since one person was caged! Find now the hooligans who were born in Namwala!

    • You need a Tonga bull to sort you out….you seem to be huffing and puffing hot and cold……

  21. UPNDonkeys what is your problem? His Excellency President Lungu is doing exactly what any responsible President should be doing. Are you telling us that your presidenT U5 would not be driving the development, unity, and peace agenda if he were The President? The only difference I see here is that U5 is not the President. However, as far as far I know U5 has been broadcasting exactly the same message from his current residence, or are you telling us that he is not being sincere?
    Even if you are Donkeys, cant you practice some consistent behaviour not always contradicting yourselves to the extent that your target audience the Zambian people are left thoroughly confused. Please UPNDonkeys I beg you to disappoint me for a change, even just once would be good enough!

  22. I have some bad news Lungu this is the 21 century the opposition parties will always exit…you can’t make up fake cases and lock them up ..by the way time flies pretty soon your term will be running up…and life is full of surprises PF will lose the elections in 2021 and you with your tea boy IG..,will be answering to the Zambian people…

    • He will soon drop dead and the minions will be on their own.
      Remember he lives on borrowed time and it’s running out, that’s the whole reason for his frustrations.

  23. The insults of NEZ give his tribe away, as I hear that parents in that tribe start teaching insults to their children while they are still very young. In most other tribes in Zambia and elsewhere in the world, insults in public and especially in the presence of children are considered taboo and anti social. I see that every blogger is actually avoiding any reference to NEZ, except I Terrible. So please understand Donkey NEZ’s language and help with prayers that he may convert back from Donkey.

    • @Terrible, There is really no need to be so much of a tribalist. If you dislike someone, why extend it to his tribe? A person is an individual not a group of people. You’re deliberately using this propaganda to incite others. It is wrong my brother. Let us try to be level headed. Zambia is for all of us. In my home are many tribes and we all love each other. Don’t take your jokes too far.

    • God deliver this country from the curse of tribal hatred. Does it mean that if you differ with someone then you have also differed with his or her tribe? Anyway it is clear now that this marriage of convenience of one Zambia one nation is on the rocks. God help us.

  24. Now outting aside Donkey NEZ, can someone tell me what is peaceful and patriotic and armageddon and volcanoes? Is it patriotism to “armageddon” or “volcano your fellow Zambians especialky the poor ones such as those victims of City Market arson? I am asking because of the call for peace and unity by one U5 while his donkeys inckuding his own beloved wife are busy practising “armageddon”, “volcanoes”, etc. How did underfive hope to show love and peace by his behaviour in Mongu? Doesn’t he realise that his Donkeys will take him on his actions and his language of “armageddon”? I mean that is the language which his Donkeys celebrate, isn’t it? So now he calls for peace without withdrawing his “armageddon” or simply apologising for that? No wonder his party reached its peak in…

  25. ….No wonder his party reached its peak in 2016 and is now on its death bed without a chance of resurrection in his remaining life span.

    • In your dreams UPND was founded on strong foundation and it will never crumble.People cerebrated after mazoka died,for more than ten yrs UPND is giving Kaminamisa hell.lol he loughs the last loughs the loudest.

  26. NEZ is just expressing himself with what is going on in the nation. In Zambia anything goes, declare oneself who you want to be, declare there is peace or have more money in the pockets are all wishes Zambians have resorted to. Now we have the undeclared state of emergency. I have also declared myself a chief of my people and Zambia should recognise me or I will sue any one who does not recognise me as Chief Chagwaza.

  27. I dont get it especially upnd, on the other hand ati lungu is weak ,futi ati ni dictator ,bambi ati he is using to much power he shud calm down ,i think the ans is lungu is the man for the job ,he is focused nangu mutukane very cool and focused just change your ways ba upnd mango naimwe ikapya 1 day if you humble yourselves failure to do that forget otherwise lungu for now he is a good driver for zambia and you know it you just pretend

    • Yes he is weak and even when he tries to be tough he is still weak. He does not even have balls to pronounce a state of emergency but leaves it to the MPs.

  28. And talking about the burning of city market, why do UPND supporters say the state of emergency is not the solution but dialogue.

    Dialogue with who, the criminals? Does UPND know them? What are you going to discuss with the criminals?

    Again they are saying the solution is hearing the petition, according to them once the petition is heard then all subbotage like the city market one will stop.

    Are they saying the people carrying subbotage are the petitioners?

    Are they saying that it is the petitioners responsible for the series of subbotage we have been experiencing?

    • Nooo iweeee it is PF starting the fires to declear a SOE to simply avoid the petition.

      Kaja ka kapoyongo ka ziba bamene ba shocka…….

      What UPND are saying is no matter how many markets you burn to try and frame them , why are you afraid of the petition???

      Why Would you rather be called a theif and rule over a fragmented country than just show in the petition you won??? Will that 14 day technicality you are using change the numbers or evidence that you won ???

      Come on, to normal people with nothing to hide just let the opposition make a mockery of them selfs you would have thought….

    • Everyone is hearing what the UPND callers are saying on the various radio forums.

      Some of these phone in programs are even recorded, so the radio stations can play them later; what are you saying.

      Not one, and not once but many UPND callers and many times have said declaring a state of emergency is not the solution but hearing the petition.

      The UPND callers have also said declaring a state of emergency is not the answer to the burning of property, the route course is lack of dialogue.

      You may say how do I know they are UPND callers? Well the usually start by saying “I greet my president HH”.

      So tell us! What do they mean by suggesting that dialogue and hearing the dead petition is the solution?

      Look, you don’t need any form of logic to grasp their statements!

    • Advice

      By your line of thinking it must be clear to everyone that it is infact PF starting fires because right here on LT we have PF bloggers calling for the banning of UPND before those fires started , so could that the the intentions of PF ?? Start fires, blame UPND then ban them ??

  29. Lungu, come on now and don’t break people’s ribs with laughter. Your swearing in is questionable if not illegal. No amount of force will legitimise you in the eyes of the half in population or rather the people that voted. You know what to and stop pretending. Enough jokes, tired now!

  30. Cement, as presently constituted, adds to the climate change disaster. Lungu needs to get behind the future!

    • He is already well “behind the future”. Living example of homo erecticus pretending to be homo sapiens

    Everyone is hearing what the UPND callers are saying on the various radio forums.

    Some of these phone in programs are even recorded, so the radio stations can play them later; what are you saying.

    Not one, and not once but many UPND callers and many times have said declaring a state of emergency is not the solution but hearing the petition.

    The UPND callers have also said declaring a state of emergency is not the answer to the burning of property, the route course is lack of dialogue.

    You may say how do I know they are UPND callers? Well the usually start by saying “I greet my president HH”.

    So tell us! What do they mean by suggesting that dialogue and hearing the dead petition is the solution?

    Look, you don’t need any form of logic to grasp…

  32. Because “…you don’t need any form of logic to grasp…” you have reached conclusion that your
    non-existent logic has solved who is behind the fire (not arson) at city market?
    Please, keep your inbreed imbec1lity to yourself.
    By the way, why firemen did not attempt to fight the fire? Instructions from above? Lack of water? Incompetence? Faulty fire-engines? No fuel?

  33. “We have been conditioned to think that only politicians will solve all our problems. But at some point, Maybe we’ll wake up one day and recognize that it was our politicians who created our problems” (Ben Carson quote).

    • Amen to that. I don’t like politics at all. It makes some grown ups behave worse than kindergarten kids.

  34. @22.2 Nkhata bay, wise words indeed and very true too. Actually some of my good friends and relatives cut across all tribes and race.

    Okay, but I will stick to donkeys for they are indeed donkeys. “Donkey” is not negotiable until they behave and reason like the rest of humanity.

  35. UPNDonkeys, there must be a crisis in your “party” right now. It is split right in the middle with those supporting terrorism on one side and those committed to their country on the other. Of course the split is directly proportional to where running mate belongs. I see running mate either expelled or resigning. He is obviously the centre of all problems in UPNDonkey although the cause is underfive who thought that by practising reverse tribalism he could win the bemba vote. The icing on the cake was that underfive thought that he could use running mate to do the dirty work for him and cause violence, or armageddon as he called it, and if things backfired there would be a fall guy while himself underfive pleads innocence and peace. As far as the underfive reasoning was concerned the…

  36. ……As far as the Underfive reasoning was concerned the Zambian people knew who was the violent guy (wife battering, employee battering, foul language like NEZ and Chilyata mhsrip, etc). Typical donkey thinking which never works as we can all see now. From armageddon now underfive is trying to sing peace, love and unity from chimbokaila. But it will not make sense without first withdrawing armageddon and rinsing his mouth with several anti septics.

  37. @14 True Zambia – what is your problem? What makes you think that Lungu thinks he will be president forever? ECL will be there until 2026 after that Zambians will chose somebody else but I am afraid not your under five who preaches Armageddon, eruption of volcanos, violence terrorism, .

  38. UPND has badly de-campaigned itself. Come 2021 Zambians will just be saying, ”Remember how UPND burn’t houses and shops for Bembas in Namwala; remember how UPND burn’t the City Market and many poor marketeers suffered and died of shock; remember how HH burn’t courts in Western Province, government buildings, remember—-, remember—— and the list will be endless, but for President Lungu it will just be sontapo!

  39. Forward with Development. Should the surplus be SOLD to ZESCO. Should ZCCM, be made to pay back the free power they got from ZESCO over the years?

  40. ZCCM -IH is today’s Zamtroop account! The sell of ZCCM – IH shares to the Israeli firm was not well explained. Was it payment for the services rendered during the electoral process? I thought these shares are supposed to be floated to citizens only. Can experts explain why that court action has not seen the light of day. Why is FQM growing alone globally and leaving Zambia out? It is not a secret that Kansanshi Mine is what has developed FQM. Does it mean our so called experts did not do a good job where paper work is concerned? Do we understand why foreigners refer to Zambia as a Bamba Zonke Republic? We promote foreign investments blindly instead of empowering Citizens and that is how we keep our country poor. Multinationals are conduits for siphoning natural resources today. We are…

  41. I also won’t tolerate anyone undermining the investor confidence by misguided statements that the IMF can leave if they are not happy.
