President Edgar Lungu says he still shares late President Michael Sata’s vision for a better Zambia.

The Head of State said this in Lusaka when he paid tribute to late President Sata during a remembrance service held at the Cathedral of Child Jesus yesterday.

President Lungu says to the Patriotic Front (PF) family, President Sata was a visionary leader who set the pace for the development path his administration is now pursuing because they share his great vision for a better Zambia.

President Lungu says as a caring leader, he understood the challenges of his people and that’s why his policies were always pro-poor throughout.

He says his strong bond with the people did not emerge in his adult political life but from his humble beginnings as a young politician, who dedicated his political work more to the cause of the grassroots.

He adds that President Sata’s charisma and firm disciplinarian attitude to work greatly inspired the PF to focus on massive infrastructure development turning the country into a construction site.

And Former First Lady Dr. Christine Kaseba has encouraged leaders to carry on her husband’s legacy by forgiving one another.

Dr. Kaseba has also appealed to Zambians to heed President Lungu’s call for National unity, reconciliation, peace and hard work.

Speaking earlier, Former Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations George Chella described Late President Sata as a mentor, patron, and hardworking leader.

  2. You mean MCS has a vision? He did his stuff spur of the moment style with arbitrary rules and against established norms.

  3. We dont believe you.Sata never tolerated corruption like you do.You brought back all those he fired cos of corruption and other ills including teaming up with his enemies.You just opposite of Sata bwana.He was no hypocrite by pretending to be holier than thou by appearing to be too christian like you.He tolerated media and Znbc was fairly independent.Nobody objective will believe that you are a disciple of Sata.You are RB disciple period.

    • Sata was once beaten by nsanda and went ahead to embracing him and giving a chairman at roads agency. Why shouldn’t ecl embrace other people into pf. Buffoon ck even went out because he never liked the idea of working with people who insulted sata.

  4. Jonathan, make sure you pay Lapgreen their money. Your late boss bungled a good deal, now you have to pay through the other hole.

    As far as I can remember you are still a self confessed visionless misleader.

  5. Jonathan let people praise you not yoursel,f being a humble christian i thought you knew this principle well.
    The mare act of saying you share the late Sata’s vision is laughable and very funny…
    Sata’s legacy was pro poor and less taxes incase you cant remember but yours jonathan is to enrich yourself and make the poor pay taxes through their nose even boasting that their no more subsidies on fuel, when wealthy countries like the USA where a salary of shop keeper is sufficient to buy a house but there still subsidizing their citizens.
    so whats the purpose of your government jonathan if not to alleviate the suffering of your people???
    if you worth your salt remove your allowances and minimise your air tourism….

  6. President Lungu says as a caring leader, he understood the challenges of his people and that’s why his policies were always pro-poor throughout.REALLY BA KAKATEKA?

  7. Lungu, it’s Sunday please. If you don’t have anything to say best you look away. You had the Presidency on a platter and instead of coming up with your own vision, you fumbled and since then, you have done nothing concrete to gain credibility. You specialise in anarchy, confusion and drama at the expense of the gullible majority. Sata, MHSRIP was no angel either. He is the reason we are in this mess, us the people not you and your chola boys that are enjoying a seven star life style. Pro-poor, please! Lungu, the likes of you are workers and specialise in receiving instructions to function. Giving you powers which you grabbed illegally is evidence enough to highlight the fact that, you can only function under instructions. How can a serious person, pro -poor have people like Kaizer as…

  8. SATA never wrote a book , so what legacy is Lungu talking about he left no writings no VISION AT ALL , BUT JUST BULLYING OTHERS , SO LETS CALL A SPADE A SPADE, EVEN KASEBA IS NOT WEARING BLACK AS PER OUR TRADITION , THIS IS PROTESTING IN A WAY AS TO HOW PF CAN PRETEND TO FOLLOW SATAS SO CALLED LEGACY

  9. Yes, I agree with the President: he shares the vision to tank the economy, import 12th-Century-BC Fire Engines at $1million each, and grab ZAMTEL from Lap Green and suddenly having to pay $380million to Lap Green which is not even in the budget. Yes, I agree he shares the vision to buy poor peasant farmers’maize produce at $6.00 per 50Kg bag, to increase electricity tarrifs, to reduce then increase then reduce by 90-ngwee then increase by more than K1 fuel prices, etc…. THAT IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF VISION ZAMBIA DOES NOT NEED.
