President Lungu on arrival in Ndola
President Lungu on arrival in Ndola

PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has described some party members who continue to want to remain as Patriotic Front members, yet are on hills and mountains insulting the party as ironic and stupid.

Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony for the Patriotic Front Regional Office and Convention Centre in Ndola, President Lungu described the politicians still sitting in Patriotic Front seats but yet rubbishing and insulting the party as ‘ichiwelewele’.

The head of state asked the aggrieved PF members to leave the party, noting that aggrieved members or those with different views do not have to insult the party publicly, but could air their concerns in-house using the many ways that the party provides.

He said; “only a foolish wife would insult her husband publicly but want to come back in the evening to eat at the household table.”

President Lungu retorted; “Those who do not believe in us please, leave us… You are either Catholic or Seventh day.”

Meanwhile, President Lungu said he is fixated to ensuring PF delivers it’s development agenda so as to recruit new members.

He said he is committed to taking the party forward and will welcome new members with love because that is what PF is all about.

President Lungu announced that PF was aiming to not only cross the prescribed 50 plus one but a with a whooping 65 Percent.

“I am here to show the love and warmth which Mr Sata left for us… we are a welcoming party, politics is about numbers and PF is here and will always be here, we all just joined it…”

And the president said that will not be intimidated into stopping his provincial visits because of aggrieved opposition claiming he is on a campaign tour.

The head of state, who landed in Ndola Copperbelt to mark his three day working visit, laughed at his critics and told them to start campaigning if they wanted because he is just doing his job.

“Naiwe kachite campaign ngaulefwaya (Go campaign as well if you want,) The next election is in 2021 if you guys want to campaign get
started, I am just doing my job,” President Lungu said.

He sternly reminded the opposition that, as Republican President, he is supervisor of the nation and in doing so can visit any part of the country he so desires.

“I am the supervisor for all ministeries, projects and the entire country. Ewo chilekalipa (whoever is hurting) can take me on,” he dared.

President Lungu noted that he is a politician and does not need to fight political battles using police or Anti Corruption Commission.

“By the way let me make it very clear, do not interfere with police or ACC. When they summon you ati harassment, political intimidation… what nonsense,” he castigated.

“The police will deal with every law breaker, whether opposition or in the ruling party. Ati Lungu is scared of me, he is using police to deal with me, nonsense.”

For his critics President Lungu highlighted; “Why should I use police to deal with political opponents.”

Meanwhile, President Lungu said that he is happy with the way the Patriotic Front (PF) party is working in ensuring that it remains strong in the Copperbelt province.

President Lungu said he will support the provincial leadership to ensure that it builds a regional PF office adding that the Copperbelt province is the heart of the nation.

The President said the PF in the Copperbelt province is moving on the right path as can be seen by the number of people joining the party.

He has since advised those that are criticising the party leadership to leave or offer constructive ideas which will help the PF move forward.

“PF is not my party or for Lusambo but for everyone. So stop segregating those joining us. Let them talk about 50 plus but us we are saying it is 65 per cent in the next election,” President Lungu said.

He said the PF is growing because it is able to resolve squabbles through dialogue whenever they arise.

And PF Copperbelt Province chairperson Stephen Kainga said the party has remained strong and that all party structures are working together to uphold the legacy of political dominance in the country.

Mr. Kainga has meanwhile told those who are insinuating that the party is divided to realise that its leadership is equal to the task.

He said the construction of the party conference hall will help to improve PF operations in the province.

And PF Secretary General Davies Mwila said leadership in the province has shown commitment in moving the party forward.

Mr. Mwila encouraged party officials to commit their efforts to ensure that PF completes the building of the conference hall which will have facilities such as lounge, offices for the President and Secretary General among others.

And President Lungu has thanked residents of Ndola for cooperating with both government and the local authority when they were moved out of the streets in an effort to combat cholera.

Mr. Lungu said government will at all cost support the people in ensuring that they trade in a good and conducive environment.

President Lungu has since instructed Copperbelt Provincial Minister Bowman Lusambo to launch a cleaning exercise and ensure that all sewer drainage system in the area are unblocked within one week.

The Head of State was speaking in Ndola today when he addressed traders at Masala market.

And President Lungu said he was saddened to learn that the area has no proper water supply and that most of the sewer systems are blocked.

He added that he will not allow people to trade in a dirty and filthy environment adding that people deserve better.

He promised to go back to Ndola in the next two weeks to ensure that this is implemented

President Edgar Lungu says government will not sideline the physically challenged people in the country but will instead work to improve their welfare.

Mr. Lungu said government will continue ensuring that the welfare of the physically challenged people in the country are addressed.

The President was speaking in Ndola today when he visited Kagonga farm for the physically challenged people.

And President Lungu regretted that the three boreholes which government allocated to service the area were sunk elsewhere.

He has since promised to have one borehole drilled at the farm.

He later donated books for school going children, calendars and pieces of Chitenge materials.

Meanwhile, Kagonga farm manager Patrick Miyenga said the farm is faced with a number of challenges which include transport, poor state of housing infrastructure, water and sanitation among others.

Mr. Miyenga said the infrastructure at the farm has ran down as it was constructed in the early 1990.

He said since then, there has not been any construction or rehabilitation works at the farm.

    • Your Excellency Felicitations, i think all the anarchy we see in politics can be atrributed to our work in progress flawed constitution you enacted in good a good spirit of our burgeoning democracy. I believe in it’s current context, we have problematic constitution. It is a recipe for unabated confusion. Amendments are inevitable to restore political order.

      And what do you mean………

    • The most inconsequential, incompetent and clueless leader to ever have emerged from Zambia, and arguably from Southern Africa even Africa. Zambian policy arena as a whole is dysfunctional and direction-less, institutional development and integrity and as a reflection of eternal Zambian values is long dead and gone under Edgar Chagwa Lungu. It will be a miracle if PF under ECL can cross the prescribed 50. Achieving a “whooping 65 Percent” for PF will be a pipe dream, a fantasy and if ECL’s current performance is an indicator, a PF “win” under ECL will mark the begining of the Republic. Zambians are enduring wasted years under ECL.

      Why would a normal person insult family members publicly UNLESS they need serious medical mental attention. It is true bawelewele fue. I concur with you ECL. But you know what? They are afraid of political extinction out’a there. It’s rough, they wanna BE in confusion in-house appeasing the desire of their father who is the father of LIES. The father of untold confusion in the world. Agents of doom.

    • Thorn in the flesh – you are as dull as Lazy Lungu a Political Party is not a family as per say…there is more democracy in a family than under Lazy Lungu…infant it fallacy to use the example of a family. In any party be it UPND or PF anyone should have a shot at the top seat…these greedy fooools all need to sell themselves at Party level.

      Oppose the president objectively rather than in a subjective manner. Insulters make me feel like throwing up in their ugly faces.

    • Why can’t he just mention his name. We know he’s talking about Kambwili. Is he scared of him by not mentioning his name? Weak President, CK should take pride in all this because he’s in the driving seat and Lungu is scared of him. Go CK.

  1. This man is very childish ati Ba kateka……how did we find ourselves having this man as a president? What is humble about this man ? Look at Botswana, Ian khama is so humble, his security detail is so low cost and when he talks it not about attacking other people because that is for small minds but abesu it is like he is not sure that he is president of Zambia.

Politics in Zambia is something else, I think Kalaba and Kambwili remain strong and fight the intruders that have taken over P.f don’t go anywhere, u are the sole owners of the P.f not Dora,Malanji, mutati,katambo,Anthonio Mwanza, Bowman etc. If they want u to leave then it should start with these people I have mentioned.

    This Mfuko Jonathan, is very contradictory!
    Now he confesses to being supervisor of all ministries.
    Just a few weeks ago he was abdicating all responsibility, & saying Cholera was NOT his problem but of others in his failing party, even going as far as blaming the opposition U.P.N.D. He also says He’s not responsible for the endemic corruption that we all know starts from Plot #1.

Bo Inonge Wina and Hon.Jean Kapata are in Western mobilising the Party too.this is a strategy which wins elections for parties!!late Michael Sata before he won in 2011,he was mobilising PF on weekly basis across Zambia.the oposition parties only have themselves to blame.all HH knows is holding useless press conferences at a rented Rhodespak secretariat or at his chalala house which only ends up in the Mast which only sales in tongaland or online here when only few Zambians can access internet!!
    BRAVO KOPOLA RESIDENTS FOR GIVING OUR BELOVED PRESIDENT A PROPER WELCOME!!

  23. Putting oneself in President Lungu’s boots, one would empathize with his trenchant reaction to those allegedly insulting the PF Party to which they still belong.
    But using immoderate or Insulting Language against those people, will not stop them from unloading more insults. A vicious circle of insults is being created.
    As Father of the Nation, one has to absorb the agonizing pain of demeaning language and still act calmly as a Father .
    Those insulting the PF Party could be urged to search their conscience and make their minds as to where their feet should be- in one position or two. Emphasis could be made that the PF Party does not want to waste time on trivialities, as it is this time, preparing to beat the 50%plus with a clear 65% plus in 2021 Elections. And end up there. There…

  25. This is so embarasing as a country having such a president. He says, he is not campaigning, then what is emphasis on 65% (rigging strategy), why talk about oppositions if these are just presidential visits? Now that he has made money from visiting abroad and making flatuated contracts, he is feeling energetic and rich, and definitely can visit the poor us.

  28. All he knows is to tour and show his insecurity by making references to those that have decided to challenge the PF nonsensical hegemony. Un-Presidential language, paranoia and desperation for another term after 2021 is all he exhibits. In the meantime, where ever he goes, he expresses disappointment at what hasn’t been done or is supposed to have happened in terms of real things that affect real people. When does he actually work?

  31. What development does Zambia need now? Roads? Zambia needs democratic, accountability, prudential financial management development among others. Politics is not just about numbers it’s also about moral leadership. Morality and patriotism to one’s country not to foreigners. How can Zambia develop when the leadership is busy developing China through award of All Major Contracts to the Chinese? The Government has failed to Develop the local Construction industry and is preferring the Chinese. How much have the Chinese construction companies paid in company taxes from these jobs?

  32. I think democracy is good it does not base on character of a person. president Lungu is our president for this term. Let him do his best. we zambians we should know that no person who will better zambia the way we desire but they will only try there best whether Lungu ,HH or any politician whom we will develop our nation. whether in developed nation they are all not satisfied with there Leaders. therefore Let us support any leader who comes in power. Let us Love one another. use good language to one another. insults will do us nothing. comment with right and good language. people will take you serriously your comments and make a right decision the way forward. if you insult you also are the same with the person you are criticizing.

  33. Fwe ma zambians tuli ba muka nya sana. It is like every Zambian thinks they can do better, as President. Some of the comments passed on this site luck substance. If some people think President Lungu is not good enough then inform the Zambians in detail what you would do differently if you were President, that to me will make sense

    What is of concern as well is that most of the bloggers criticizing the President and his Government are Zambians residing in foreign countries as Economical refugees, who have run away from Zambia. Let the people back home do the talking as they are in a better position

    There will never be a President that will be loved and supported by everyone. Some (Not all) of the critics on this blog make no sense

  34. Once beaten twice shy. If you look at those that are insulting the Presidency, they have one thing in common and that is that they are failures. They tried to ascend to the post using all means including the ballot but could not make it. Are we going to stay that low to be insulting all the time rather than offer solutions to the many problems that this country is faced with? Those that claim they can use BRILLIANT ideas to make lots of money without other input are not applying the same brilliance to create employment but insult day in day out. SHAME. A reputation is not doing what Jim and Jack want but doing that thing most of the time. When you offer solutions most of the time you shall be known as a problem solver and insults just like that.

  36. My dear brothers and sisters happy that God has blessed us with life today. One thing I would like to put forward here is this, anything to do with tribal politics will not built our dear country but destroy it. I wouldn’t love to see Kenya in Zambia. We have always lamented that foreigners have invaded Zambia leaving us the indigenous hopeless.
    Here is the truth, firstly as Zambians we don’t like to read things that matter most to us. Secondly our education system was used to colonize us, we have not realised that, the sooner we do that the better, our system has quarantined us to be job seekers at all levels that is Diploma, Degree PhD. We like to use our qualifications to bully and threatening others, lack of financial discipline in our culture is killing us, why do Indians…
