President Lungu addresses addresses Zambian’s Living in the United State of America at Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission in New York on Thursday, September 21,2017-Picture by THOMAS NSAMA

President Edgar Lungu says those with evidence or any useful information about fire tenders must come forward and those charged with the responsibility to investigate must show interest in the matter.

“There has been an outcry about the recently acquired fire trucks and I think that those charged with the responsibility to investigate must show interest in the matter”

Speaking when he addressed Zambian’s Living in the United State of America at Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission in New York yesterday, President Lungu charged that he is not corrupt and will not be intimidated by accusations of corruption as he carries out his duties.

“I know also that whenever a tender is given to one person the other loser raises questions, but since there is a lot of protests over this one those with information of wrong doing must come forward” President Lungu said.

    • This proves that President Lungu has nothing to hide.

      Of the people that tendered the company given were the right company, it’s as simple as that.

      If you have a problem, honestly you can kiss my behind. I’m sick and tired of this unnecessary emphasis on this minuscule tender.

      I hold a PhD

      Thanks

    • I think what the President is saying is true. Stop insulting the President. if you have the evidence please bring it forward like CK said he has evidence. Chishimba kabwili and anyone else can now bring their evidences forward. if the President fail to act on them then at that point you can insult him. Zambian we have a bad habit of talking without evidence.

    • @Kolwe, yes especially women were clapping too much. Me I wanted Kapyongo to respond to that Firetrucks question, but Ba Harry said awe bane mulekeni umunenu. So I used too much short time with Ba Harry discussing manganese in Mansa.
      You see when Edgar is among good guys like Ba Kapambwe, Ba Harry, becomes likeable.
      I didn’t see Kaizer, I had action for him.

    • IT’S A FAIR CALL – YOU WONDER WHY THE UPND FOLKS WANT TO DEVELOP COLD FEET WHEN ASKED TO CALL FOR LEGAL REDRESS.
      ==================================
      Should we fold our arms and hail unsubstantiated corruption calls when asked to come forth with what you have, you go hiding like koswes in their holes. If the ACC is not functioning, take ’em to task. The UPND has blamed the ECZ, the POLICE, the JUDICARY, the PARLIAMENT, ZNBC, the ZAMBIAN PEOPLE etc. This time they are hailing disparaging remarks at the ACC. These cowards are too much. These ch(a)ps with heavy hearts, awe sure.

    • the president is bluffing and taking us Zambians for fools like his cadres. Not so long the president came out chest out to a conference claiming his ministers where corrupt eventually leading to the dismissal of chishimba kambwili, no that a considerable amout of time has elapsed with no fruitful direction to his corruption case no head way has been made except drunken statements of bitterness from the likes of chiteme and madam side chick information minister. so was bitterness the reason kambwili was fired??? so this call for investigation by the president should be taken for a joke.

    Many people shall appreciate your good works later and not now.so just keep on fulfilling 2016 campaign promises Mr President!!

    • @Njimbu, am sure those are first firetrucks you have seen. Ifwe kuno we see them daily, because of accidents or rescuing cats in trees.
      Those made by Bokani Zulu are small, $90,000 value.
      Ba Lungu should also sue Bokani Zulu who is claiming his business partner.

      Do you really need people to come forward when the evidence is right in front you like how this company qualified for the $40m tender. This is what happens when stealing is the norm.

    • Spaka boyi, local prices quoted for items sold in the UK or SA are different from prices for export. I import products into Zambia and I was forced to open an office in JHB and London because the prices I was quoted when I told the supplies that I was in Zambia were about 20% higher than what I now get since I now have local contacts.

  7. The president is right let us see how that one million dollars was spent on one truck each , I can see some gaps in this case since you can’t buy 42trucks from one dealer and never get a discount.
    This is questionable to any observer, it is not practical 42 trucks no discount , at a million dollars is a terrible mistake to make.

  10. A serious president would have suspended all those involved the procurement of equipment and then instituted investigation. But instead he is already challenging those with evidence to come forward. You have the whole government machinery to investigate and you are challenging people with evidence especially that one of your close associate soko is involved. But lishamo pa “Z” ukukwata chaps like this one as a president. Zambia is just a cursed country mwee.

  11. The company is just very new to win such tenders. It was formed merely to to help the president and his thieving cabinet to milk the little hard earned money that the few tax payers cough through their noses. Poor civil servants and our hard working poor farmers are suffering and yet they buy such machines when they are the ones who bring tension in the country by arresting people without cause. Time is coming when you will be made to account all the money stollen.

  12. What evidence do you need? These company was formed specifically for this tender. The owners of the company do not produce fire tenders, hence subcontracted the supply to someone else. These chaps have no experience whatsoever and yet they got the bid. Of course, you defending your fellow thieves.

  13. What a bellend this Lungu guy has become! People are questioning how a simple fire tender can cost $1million. He reckons that is ok for a company be formed and offered a tender worth millions of dollars in the same year! How can you purchase fire tenders with the same exact specifications? You send a fire tender designed for use on tall buildings to Nchelenge, how many tall buildings are in Nchelenge? waste of resources is foolish!

  14. The first step is to acknowledge that there maybe a problem since there is so much outcry, and the next is to appoint an independent body ( no party affiliations), to investigate this issue. I get the feeling that Lungu is already getting defensive about this and he probably knows who is responsible for the extravagance.

  15. Yes the president is right let those with evidence make citizen arrest or report the matter to police or to ACC they have been given a chance to do so.
    Why Zambian politicians behave like that they can only see wrong doing when they fall out of favor from the president
    Kambwili,mulongoti, nalumango ,nawakwi, george mpombo, to mention some few but when in the government as minister they can’t see wrong doing. mainy of them behave the same.
    When one day Lungu decide to drop kapamba mulenga you Will see how she will go againest the President believe me fellow Zambian.

  16. Mr President, Chishimba Kambwili told us that he has the quotations from the same company which supplied the 42 fire trucks. I think this is evidence enough to verify what exactly happened. We all know were CK stays, so get the quotations from him simple.

    • How can you take the voice of one bitter failed expelled politician for his word? CK told us this, CK told us that. Look who is talking. That same President you are addressing here just fired the hell outa CK. He is the reason these late revelation has come to the fore. Now since this looks like an emotional game on the part of CK the blackmailer, it is playing well in the hands of hallucinating UPND folks. Sorry, this sounds rude but right on point.

  17. Mr President, great that you are indicating interest in this matter but for you to say that those that have the evidence should come forward is trying to avoid the matter, unless you SIR demand the truth nothing will happen we all know that. Why not just instruct those with the ‘responsibility to investigate’ to do their job and give us results. This country will never go anywhere when leaders fail to do the right thing.

A town in London spent 10 million pounds for 42 truck, South Africa also spent only 12 to 13 million for 28 trucks. Lungu must be taking us for a joke.

Because we know the behaviour of Donkeys now, we know that it will take at least two years of debate on the suitability of the members appointed. If you do accept the appointments, you will certainly NOT accept the result if it favours President Lungu, didn’t we go through the elections and the “petitions” both of which the Donkeys failed to accept?

  33. Year: 2012

    Avon Fire and Rescue has brought into service six new fire engines at a cost of £2.4m.

    The service’s decision to replace some of the vehicles was approved two years ago by the Avon Fire Authority.

    Chief Fire Officer Kevin Pearson said: “They’re lighter, shorter and more compact which makes them easier to manoeuvre and have better capability.”

    The new appliances will be based at Bath and Weston-super-Mare, Temple and Avonmouth.

    Two of the engines cost £500,000 each and are the first of their kind in the UK, Avon Fire and Rescue said.

    Some of the new features of these two engines include an on-board stretcher, on-board generator and a 27m ladder.

    The other engines, which each cost just under £340,000, have specialist equipment for road traffic accidents…

    The other engines, which each cost just under £340,000, have specialist equipment for road traffic accidents in addition to the standard fire engine equipment.

    The fire service said the new engines will mean fewer staff need to be deployed because of the improved capability.

  35. What does the manufacturer say is his price? And why was the contract awarded to zero-experienced third party instead of going for the OEM?
    If each truck cost USD1m, with full specs, how can that be acceptable when some of our so called towns are basically villages not warranting the full spec geared truck? How can a fire tender for say, Chama cost the same as that for say, Ndola, or for Lusaka? This was immature and a pure waste of money. It shows that those responsible for making the “buy” decision are not fit to be in those offices.

  36. The news story above is dated17 September 2012. It is from the fire service in Bristol, England. The make of truck is M.A.N. For the sake of thick headed U.PNDonkeys I will explain a few basic things.
    1. At that time rate of exchange £1:$1.5
    i.e. £500,000×1.5= $750,000 per truck.
    2. £340,000×1.5=$510,000 per truck.
    3. These are unit costs in the UK, before insurance, freight etc. Add insurance & freight (1) becomes 1.75x $750,000=$1,312,000 each and (2) becomes
    $510,000×1.75=$893,000 each.
    4. Add inflation and or cost escalation for 5 years since 2012.
    5. For the case under debate add profit margin.
    6. If you require further information please contact the Chief Fire Officer Kevin Pearson, he may still be the Chief.
    7. Google “cost of fire engine uk”

  42. Like I said before, these U.PNDonkeys really don’t believe their own arguments. It was just their customary way of trying to embarrass the Ptesident while he is at the UN General Assembly. Somehow these Donkeys think that the international community has time for Donkeys.
    I like the President’s cool, he seems to understand the U.PNDonkeys very well.

  45. Here is a piece of news from the UK on 20th July 2015;

    “Firefighting in Crawley has been boosted by the introduction of a new state of the art fire engine into its fleet.

    The high-tech P320-CP31 Scania, costing around £280,000, replaces an old Water Tender Ladder at Crawley Fire Station and is part of West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service’s on-going investment into upgrading its operational fleet”.

    Are our 42 Scania trucks worth more? What model are they?

  51. Bwana big words, Mr. Mpombo, quoted from Tumfweko, you do not possess the wide wisdom of Zambians who are not loud mouthed like you are. There is need to put this matter in the correct perspective, punish all those who sign documents with their eyes closed and those who undertook the evaluation as well as approving authorities. That is the only way people will begin to respect public office by learning hard lessons

  52. Zambia is rotten to the core with corruption. For every transaction someone somewhere wants to have a cut hence inflating the prices. We see wrongs as rights. We are building a very dangerous society. Not until we change our mind sets we are doomed as a country. We need a leader like Mwanawasa to set a no nonsense tone, its not too late Lungu, you can be this leader!

  54. @ 10 nshilimubemba – The Government was dealing with a local supply, it is the local supplier who can ask for a discount from the main supplier of which may be it was given. When preparing tender documents there is a Bid Submission Form were the buyer asks for a discount so it is either you give discount or not, unless if the Government was negotiating direct from the manufacturer which is not the case. If the government starts buying direct the all business community will collapse as the Government is the main buyer and source of income to most of the suppliers.

  55. Opportunity for our CK to present his evidence. We know that if if if the investigation draws a blank, Chishimba shall not be convinced because he has a preconceived mind. To him the players in this Fire Tender issue are guilty of corruption. Let us learn to look for response rather than a Yes or No.

  56. There is no smoke without fire and you know it Lungu that you are corruptly involved in this issue. By the way, who are going to be members of the commission of inquiry? Fellow corrupt crooks appointed by yourself?
    Time is coming when you will sweat.
