President Edgar Lungu has said that he is in good health and working to deliver to the expectations of the people of Zambia, contrary to media reports suggesting that he is not well. President Lungu said that he has never hidden his state of health and that he will always inform the nation when need be.

The Head of State said that he was saddened that some people have continued wishing him ill when he is fit to run the country. President Lungu was speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony to mark the construction of Maina Soko Medical Center in Lusaka.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has said that he will not fire any of his Ministers to impress those calling for him to dismiss some of them on corruption allegations.

The President said he will lend a deaf ear to people calling on him to fire some of his Ministers.

He added that Zambians are watching the development projects by the PF Government and that posterity will judge those who are thirsty for power.

  1. You only hide the state of your wealth.

    I mean who get mad coz they are the second richest person in zed??

    • OF COURSE YOU ARE HEALTHY – YOU NEED A TREADMILL IN YOUR FITNESS ROOM. YOU HAVE GAINED SOME CONSIDERABLE WEIGHT. BEING PRESIDENT AND HEALTHY IS SWEET.
      ””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””
      I wish you well during your current tenure. Remember, 2021 is waiting. Enjoy your health and do right. Big brother (the electorate) is watching. So far so good.

    • LET’S ALSO HEAR IT FROM MERCHANTS OF ILL-HEALTH. NOTHING POSITIVE COMES OUT’A EM INSULTING MOUTHS. WHOOPS!! ENVY AND JEALOUS CAN KILL. FELLAZ WITH CESSPOOL HEAVY-LADEN-HEARTS.

    • These flagging off and ground breaking ceremonies awe sure…the whole office of the President just for such event plus entourage. Lungu will turn out to be the worst President in Zambian history

    • Lungu didn’t go South Africa for medical check-up but to actually spend quality time with his Swazi concubine who has been visiting State Lounge. Mbabane is only 3 hrs drive to Joburg.

    • Eager to talk about pointless issues yet he conveniently ignores issues of reckless govt spending and corruption!!

    • His hard hat states Ashtrom that’s an Israeli company …surely even a medical centre you have to use foreign company even for a defense building.

    • Meanwhile, President Lungu has said that he will not fire any of his Ministers to impress those calling for him to dismiss some of them on corruption allegations.

      When we tell you that Lazy Lungu is a tool for corruption this is what we mean…

    • No one wish Edgar anything bad.
      Even ku Ng’anga you just waste your money.
      In this atmosphere no one would want anyone sick or die. If a PF minister die tomorrow, God forbid, such funeral will be poorly attended.
      So guyz kulaikoselesha.

    • How can anyone wish ill of a dull man who is the only one wearing a PPE hard hat when he is laying a foundation brick at ground level.

    • Every drunkard is at risk of becoming sick anytime unless the president is telling us that he has reduced on Kachasu and Chibuku.

    • Go to the official Forbes website and check if you will see that shongongomatics publication being attributed to the renowned Forbes magazine. They have heightened propaganda to alarming proportions and weak souls are parroting the propaganda. If I were the president, I would reorganize the media team and make it counter the propaganda with full force.
      One way to do that is to expose the lies as soon as they come out.

    • Sungwe

      Lungu can not counter anything, he does not deny that he is a corrupt thief…..and that decleared $2.3 million was decleared by him after his 18 months in office , so counter what ?

    • @ sungwe

      Lies?
      Which one?
      About his conviction for embezzlement?
      Or about his place of birth?
      Or perhaps about nationality of his parents?

  2. Shonongomatics at play. forget those blood suckers who wish you dead Mr President the way they did to Late MCS. They wish they could celebrate the way they did when our Legend Michael succumbed to cancer.

  3. The 2018 Mercer survey of cities livability & quality of life is out and Lusaka is rated very low (with a 3.9% improvement in living standards the last 20yrs)

  4. He officiates at an upgrade of a medical centre. Really? That’s what he does most of the time. Commissioning, opening this and that – and in the process talking a lot of nonsense.
