President Lungu addresses journalists at State House

The opposition National Restoration Party (NAREP) says had President Edgar Lungu recognized and acknowledged that there was political tension in the country the situation could have been diffused in time.

NAREP Spokesperson Bwalya Nondo has told QTV News that his party even wrote letters to President Lungu and the UPND asking the two parties to come to terms with what was prevailing in the country.

Mr. Nondo noted that the Head of State has on several occasions refused to accept that there is political tension in the country.

He wondered why the President has now taken strict security measures if there is no tension in the country.

Mr Nondo says NAREP feels there is need for an urgent Political Indaba before things spiral out of control.

He states that avoiding dialogue or any other formidable form of engagement will not help resolve the political situation in the country

  1. In the absence of tension still the head of state can put strict measures. He is been proactive that so. People write wills before they die. If a person writes a will doesn’t it mean he/she is going to die.

    I am following Mushota. I finished my Bachelor’s degree last week.

  2. These children don’t what dictatorship is. By any standards Mugabe is not anything compared to dictatorships sponsored by the USA. During Kissinger ‘s time as SoS dictatorship thrived in most South and Central America under Operation Condor sponsored by USA. Here in Africa Mobutu benefited too.

  4. Lungu and the PF can not function in a democracy…….they steal and lie too much…..instead of concentrating on the economy and the 500,000 jobs lungu promised they concentrate on thuggery and allowing unemployed PF thugs to brutalise people…

  5. The President is in denial, the Catholics advised him to use his position and strike a note of tolerance and promote an environment of dialogue, but he laughed and insulted them. They were allucinating according him. Now that the fire has been proven to be real, he he wants to use dictatorial methods. Sit down and reason, compromise and negotiate.

    • @7 Uwakwisano, COMPROMISE ON WHAT? Much as I think things COULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT HAD THE POLICE, OP and other security organs done their job to and end to this violence, I HAVE NOT SEEN ON WHAT ISSUES LUNGU NEEDED TO COMPROMISE?

  6. Why is President Lungu so scared of sitting down with opponents. Did he actually win, if he did no worry or is there something he knows which Zambians don’t tell us so that we help you.

    • Because PF won the elections in seven out of ten regions Central, Lusaka, Luapula, Kopala, Muchinga, North and East and if you claim HH won how? Hallucinations? Weed?

    • Why should he sit with anyone. Never heard of Muhammad Ali sitting with Joe Frazier to discuss how he could accommodate him after a loss. HH lost period and if Narapists think they can short cut into government by “sitting ” with the government, they are insane. Even if the concourt had heard the case in full and Edgar won the case HH and his side kick GBM were going to continue protesting. There’s too much at stake for them and with time everyone will come to know what this is all about.

  7. iT IS 50 + 1 AND LUNGU GOT IT.
    WHEN HAKAINYELA HEKA SAID PUBLICLY THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE ARMAGEDDON IF HE LOST ELECTIONS, THE POLICE WERE SUPPOSED TO ACT, THERE AND THEN.

    ZAMBIA DOES NOT HAVE AN INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE, WHAT WE HAVE IS A SPECTATOR GENERAL OF POLICE, SO, AS LONG AS WE HAVE THAT KIND OF LEADER AT THE HELM, WE MIGHT AS WELL FORGET ABOUT ARRESTING THE PEOPLE WHO WISH THE WORST FOR THIS COUNTRY.

  9. All opposition parties in Zambia are a joke! They think at Under Five Card Clinic level! They have no substance to articulate and they are a let down lot! Lord have mercy! Mushota is right! A Grade VII Certificate is not good enough to make you form a party! Please obtain PhDs, like Mushota! You will become better thinkers! Under five card diarrhea of the mind will be a thing of the past.

  11. What you see as a politician worth being a republican President is just another obstacle in the middle of a highway in other people’s eyes. In this case the majority said Yes to ECL. That is the one they want at least for the current 5 years.
