President Edgar Lungu has directed all government leaders and Zambians to stop talking and start working in order to get the job done.

The Head of State noted that there has been a lot of procrastination among those charged with implementing programmes and projects hence affecting delivery of service.

President Lungu observed that since Zambia’s independence over 53 years ago there have been several action programmes by the many regimes that have governed the country without feasible success.

The president said he wants to be seen and judged differently hence his resolve to adopt a work and no talk approach to the many programmes being devised by government and the private sector to make Zambia green.

ZANIS reports that President Lungu said this when he officiated at a double event of Plant a Million Trees and Keep Zambia Clean, Green and Healthy Campaign at Chakunkula Basic School in Munali Constituency in Lusaka.

“It’s time to cut the talk, and do the working. So I have come to this school to work and not to talk” said President Lungu.

He said the country recently launched the Plant a Million Trees and Make Zambia Clean, Green and Healthy campaign hence the need to start working to ensure that the programmes succeed.

President Lungu said people need to understand the importance and participate in planting trees and keeping surroundings clean.

The president led the way in sweeping the surroundings of the school where he and his entourage planted citrus fruit trees.

Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo and Ministers for Higher Education Nkandu Luo, General Education David Mabumba and Lands Jean Kapata and several permanent secretaries, government officials and other stakeholders joined in the cleaning and tree planting.

President Lungu also toured the school’s tree nursery and planted seedlings of various citrus trees that will be supplied to the Plant a Million tress Initiative for planting around Lusaka District.

And speaking earlier, Minister of Lands Jean Kapata said her ministry will ensure that it provides technical support to schools to develop and manage citrus fruits nurseries and orchards.

Minister of General Education David Mabumba made assurance that the over 4 million pupils in primary schools will all participate in the Keep Zambia Clean campaign and Plant a Million trees initiative.

Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo said there is need for patriotism among all Zambians to clean their backyards in order to ensure that the programme of cleaning the city and country succeeds.

Plant a Million Trees Initiative Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel ChibesaKunda urged Zambians to cultivate habits of planting economic trees such as citrus fruit to help replenish the millions of trees that have been cut over the years.

MTN Zambia acting Chief Executive Officer Mwenzi Mulenga said her organization is ready to support the implementation of campaigns to ensure that they become sustainable.

Ms. Mulenga said her organization will embark on a 21 day yellow care programme next month to help residents of Lusaka’s Ngombe Township to clean up their neighborhood.

She handed over a generator set to President Lungu donated by MTN Zambia to Chakunkula Basic School.

And area Member of Parliament Nkandu Luo thanked President Lungu for coming to her constituency to kick start and implement the two programmes.

Every last Saturday of the month, businesses are expected to shut down and all Zambians to take up positions and participate in cleaning up their backyards and communities in order to make their surroundings clean, green and healthy.

  1. Really laughable …does he look at himself in the mirror when he is prepping himself reading these speeches. This is all Lazy Lungu is good at wearing overall and gumboots with his drinking friend Bowman…this man should have just stayed being a minister.

    • full of shiiiiit President busy stealing and trying to divert peoples attention with your nonsensical cleaning programs…this is how dull Zambians can be at times…Lungu knows how to close their eyes and shut their mouths…Lungu acting like he cares for Zambia whilst busy investing in Eswatini…its a pitty we don’t have serious oppositions

    • The man has even time to perfect his handwriting …really laughable…writing about caring for the earth yet you still believe in primitive methods like culling (or hunting for a fee) of wild animals like hippos in their natural habitats. The man is fraud.

    • Lungu must go….too much corruption and stealing….don’t worry about cleaning people want answers about your I’ll gotten wealth

    • ECL has a very good handwriting. Very legible all the way. On this one, I admire ECL and that’s just about it. Tree planting ought to be taking place in rural areas where they have been lost to charcoal burning. ECL should next time consider planting tree native to Lusaka also.

    • I don’t like when someone tells me to shut-up and work!
      Its same as telling Zambians to stop singing.

    • I think the problem with “KEEP ZAMBIA CLEAN CAMPAIGNS” has always been trying to do things in isolation. This is NOT the first time such initiative has been undertaking and they always seem to fail. The most important crucial step needed before embarking another such campaign is stop and ask why previous ones have not achieved the altmate desired results…i.e. the making and keeping our cities clean. If we can not learn from previous mistakes and do things differently, then we deserve dirty cities forever.

      One factor that is pretty obvious is the weak and chaotic (in many cases non-existent) garbage collection systems by CITY AUTHORITIES/GOVT. For as long as this bottleneck remains unattended to, no amount of campaigning to keep our cities clean will work. If a city doesn’t have…

    • Continue…

      or run a reliable LANDFILL for the city garbage, how can you even dream of keeping the filth/garbage out of the city? No matter how much we promote, and people buy into such campaigns, their efforts will always be frustrated by such bottlenecks and lack of consistency.

      People may clean their backyards, even part of their streets, but where do they dump the garbage if no one is going to pick it in time and consistently? And this why you find people dumping their garbage in drainages and blocking them causing other health Hazzards. So, unless we sort out the GARBAGE COLLECTION SYSTEM first no one will take such campaigns seriously. And the Cholerae outbreaks will always be with us every year.

      I personally feel this is where CITY/CENTRAL GOVT efforts should be directed…

    • Continue…

      first. And people are more likely to stick with it if they see that Govt (City and otherwise) is serious about this. Not a one-off cleaning campaign without the necessary and required logistics in place…it ain’t gonna work!

    • Most people with beautiful handwritings are slow thinkers. Doctors and Engineerings have bad handwritings coz the hand is trying to keep up with their lightening speed thoughts and ideas. Lungu’s thought process is at a snail’s pace so he has the time to decorate and beautify his writing.

    • Chanchima, don’t give ideas to these hyenas to plant trees in rural Zambia.
      They will go to the remotest part of Zambia to get the maximum night allowances, a big contingent of civil servants and police officers will be so glad to go and make money.
      some of them will plant seeds in young rural feminine than planting trees.

    • You want to clean a city …do it in sustainable way; construct plastic recycling plants and paper recycling plants for the City Councils….only take un-recyclable garbage to landfill in you have to.
      Moreover the recycling industry is a very profitable sector as products are sort after locally and internationally in the manufacturing sector, road construction etc and you will also create employment…plus city councils will do their best to make sure rubbish is collected as this is a revenue stream for them….buy the plastics /bottles from people by the tonne if you have to you will see how they will clean up; they will literally go around urban areas collecting them.

    • This is not the time to stop talking Mr President we need more answers on fire trucks, your land in Swaziland, citizenship of some individuals perceived to have stolen a dead person’s credentials, rampant corruption in your government, abuse of public order act by Kampyongo, high levels of poverty and unemployment. Yo aask us to cut the talk is exaping from the serious issues above that needs your response. By the way when did Mr President realise it was time to work, is it today or the very day he was sworn in as president? That cover up won’t work simply provide answers sir.

    • Lungu afunta ka. Lungu and his advisers have just gone mad and need seriously mental capacity assessment at Chinama.

      The way difficult it has become to make a living in Zambia the poor can not afford not to engage in business to buy a meal for the day.

      This drunkrad lot has messed up Zambia big time.

      Lungu must go by any means possible.

    • Brilliant idea with a workable system in place. If those numbers are right then we actually need to target 4 million trees since primary schools alone have 4 million pupils.

      Each school develops an orchard for apples, oranges, mangos, guavas, lemons, peaches, bananas, etc. and every outgoing Grade 7 pupil hands over each of their own tree to an incoming Grade 1 pupil each year.

      Each school hires a full time horticulturist whose sole responsibility is to manage a class for agriculture science on how to grow and develop a food processing plant, etc.

      Competition are held each year as to whose tree produced more fruits etc and market the fruits within local communities through shops like Shoprite, etc and revenues are invested in subsidized expenses from the ministry for salaries,…

    • Continued…

      Competition are held each year as to whose tree produced more fruits etc and market the fruits within local communities through shops like Shoprite, etc and revenues are invested in subsidized expenses from the ministry for salaries, etc. including bonuses for teachers and high yielding schools, scholarships higher education to deserving pupils, etc.

      These incentives would make this a viable enterprise whose final objectives would lead to sustainability, then move to do the same in secondary schools and the rest would be history.

      In rural areas and villages let’s work with chiefs to make sure each of their subjects plants a new tree every year, citrus or indigenous, it does matter. We would have planted 20 million trees by time this is said and done with in the next…

    • Continued…

      We would have planted 20 million trees by time this is said and done with in the next 5 years.

      In fact, if the focus in villages was on industrial trees such as rubber trees, eucalyptus and pine, new industries would eventually emerge and add to the GDP of the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise.

      Let’s run this country the best way we know how because Zambia Is Greater Than Any Single One Of Us ~ B R Mumba, Sr

    • Abena Dudelove … yaba!!! Have you ever heard of Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd President Of these United States Of America??!!!

      How about John Quincy Adams, the 6th President Of these United States Of America???!!! Harvard University wrote a report on the smartest US Presidents of all times using IQ results.

      John Quincy Adams had the highest IQ of all US Presidents of all times and you can google his handwritten notes from the Smithonian Institute while Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration Of Independence!!!

      Unbelievably beautiful handwriting, he has. ECL’s handwriting is even more beautiful than mine. Give the man some credit. I guarantee you, Chagwa had a higher score on Special Paper 1 & 2 than you meaning he’s not slow.

      Do you know how hard it was to get into Mukuba…

    • Continued…

      Do you know how hard it was to get into Mukuba Secondary School back in the day, let alone UNZA? Everyone who thinks ECL is dull is himself/herself dull and/or just jealous of the guy’s achievements.

      I can guarantee you 99.999999% of bloggers here wished they were President but they will never be thus these daily rantings because that which they aspire to, they will never be and the man who owns it now, they denigrate.

      ECL is one of the smartest Presidents the Zambian Enterprise ever had, watch the man’s actions/focus and if you’re smart enough you will understand what I mean. That’s how he keeps beating you at the polls.

      I used to have a beautiful handwriting, that’s why most of my teachers wanted me to write notes on the chalk board for my classes, my classmates liked to borrow my notebooks to study because my writing was clear.

      But even with those accolades, Chagwa handwriting beats mine hands down … also, I know that not all doctors write in chicken scratch.
      My best friend is a doctor and my youngest but one brother is a doctor and they both have great handwriting skills.

      Bepeniko bambi bane. Otherwise, you may need to stay blind … it’s better for you that way ~ B R Mumba, Sr

  2. To keep Zambia green we need water. Lusaka water get involved, and water costs money, we may plant trees which will never grow. KK once planted trees along freedom way today they are all dead no water.

    • Can you imagine, he is promising to deliver the promise when he is half way through his tenure, what has he been doing all this time.

    • @ 3.1

      Pilfering, plundering, stealing, deceiving, harassing, pick-pocketing, embezzling, profiteering ……….

  3. No Bwana Chagwa!
    There are serious Allegations leveled against you which bring your presidency into question. The strange thing is you have not held a press conference to answer these issues some of which have been proven by your spokespersons! As long as you leave the many questions against you unanswered, even us who once gave you the benefit of doubt will start asking and by the time you realize, kuya bebele! Before cutting the talk, address your employers the masses concerning conduct unbecoming of a public servant! It’s too late trying to sway public concerns about your Kleptocracy! If you ever try to muzzle the citizens, the stones will speak on their behalf!

    • @ 4.1

      Cut the cramp and admit that HE is only good at pilfering, plundering, stealing, deceiving, harassing, pick-pocketing, embezzling, profiteering, bribing, threatening, misleading ……….

  4. upnd cadres (Spaka, Anonymous, Dudelove, Jay Jay etc) your problem rather tragedy is that you have condemned anything and everything that is not started by your tribal party. But then there is nothing that you have started as a party, are you suggesting that Zambia has to wait until you form government before we see any initiative by the upnd? But that may be 80 years from now, so we have to stagnate as a country until then?
    So the tragedy is that since 2006 and especially in recent times since August 2016, you have made so much noise that we cannot decipher sense from nonsense, jokes or seriousness. You simply stand for nothing. As the EIU noted a few days ago, upnd is currently directionless, which is a polite and diplomatic way of saying that upnd is currently leaderless, for…

    • I just read the first line of your post and knew what it was going to be about …a dumbo who only see black and white!!

    • We are too busy trying to protect our treasury and taxes from your thieving president mune. That’s more important

    • @5 Dude love
      am non partisan my friend….neither UPND nor PF….but i know when to criticize and when to appreciate….Nothing really to appreciate in PF govt,,,,bunch of criminals….and it turns out holier than thou Kambwili was actually the mastermind of Corruption when he was in Govt

    • upnd cadre number 5 very good point. these goons think by opposing everything said and done by ecl is what opposition all about. No that is backward thinking. in-fact concerning tree planting whether they like ecl or not this is your baby because these goons have depleted all tree in southern resulting in erratic what they can say about this noble move is politicking.

    • Cader……

      You support every corruption by lungu…we know in some tribes being a theif is seen as been sharp…

  5. My uncle worked with Lungu when he was company Secretary at Mulungushi investments and he confirmed that Lungu was a pretty dull dude

    • dudelove, bembas say abalya imbulu balapalamana. If your uncle resigned because he could not work with ECL it was going make sense. But unfortunately, he did not. We can conclude that your uncle was actually the dullest who made ECL become dull in trying to show him how to do things and to ensure peace ECL decided to drop to your uncle’s level. Iam told ECl has a lot of friends in his govt and for not appointing your uncle, it shows your uncle is jealous.

    • The same dingbat even responding to his own posts (in 5.5) in another name. ..you can see he starts a sentence with “But “…

    Now EIU did not say the same about Lungu, if anything they said that Lungu will contjnue ruling for the foreseable future without any tangible opposition because it (upnd) is directionless.

    • @ 7

      Unlike CONVICTED EMBEZZLER who has clear direction to Pilfering, plundering, stealing, deceiving, harassing, pick-pocketing, embezzling, profiteering ……….

  7. #6 Dudelove, how come your uncle is not the President?

    It would also be interedting to see the current state of the dude that you call your uncle. Is he one of the bank directors perhaps? Just trying hard to guess.

    • Because he had no interest in politics mune. He is quite happy on his farm and running his businesses using his own money not the ka dull chap who chanced the presidency after failing to run a simple law firm.

  8. Aba nabo ba Jay Jay, he tried so hard to hide his tribalism until I exposed him, rather I tactfully made him to expose himself. Not all tongas are tribalists but the few who are tribalists are all in upnd as leaders and cadres, like Jay Jay, Spaka lilo etc. No comment on Dudelove, he is just a willing victim I guess, probably from one of the two auxilliary support bases of upnd.

  9. That’s hypocrisy Mr Mutaware Lungu ,how come you didn’t stop thievery of lots of mukula trees or the spread of dirty street vending ? The damage has already been done.

    • He has never said a single word in relation to Mukula Tree debacle …like everything he let that disappear without calling in relevant authorities to investigate instead he created a team of crooks to investigate themselves.

  10. Getting back to the article, thank you Mr President for your hard work, dedication, and direction for the nation to work towards achieving a sustainable environment for all.

    • cadre; Where is the plan ecl is proposing towards achieving a sustainable environment? Chinese are busy right now finishing our trees in Western Province. Why are they not obliged to plant back the trees they are allowed to cut? ecl and group must stop the talk and start thinking & planning for the country not just for their bellies.

  11. Most of Lusaka has got no water, how do you keep Lusaka green? Plant trees that do not need too much water, but I can see that they have not put much thought about which type of trees they have to plant. Don’t plant eucalyptus trees, they will dry up your water tables.

    • @ Taonga
      Are you aware of the project called Millennium Challenge and its benefits to the city of Lusaka? Its first of its kind in 53 years and soon drlling companies will be charg8ng as low as K3,000 for a seventy meters deep borehole. Oh by the way with this project completed it will be illegal to dig a pit latrine in Lusaka.

    • @Malinso
      The Millenium Challenge is a US initiative founded in 2004 has projects in at least 33 African countries spent over USD8 billion. The MCC focusses on under funded areas of development in poor countries. They run the projects where your government has failed to see the need to fund.

    • Nice comment Cutout.
      I hope people are aware that your money goes into fattening fat cats like Chitotela who are not even content with their salaries. Developmental projects are the donor’s baby while the fat cats who are not even content with their salaries loot.

  12. …we must ignore the directionless detractors, can’t remember when upnd did or suggested anything tangible.
    Bantu aba shuwa maganizo monga ni ngombe, olo in my language ati likomu!!

  13. There we go again. The blue overalls and gumboots have come out for another photo shoot. If there is half the zeal shown in cleaning corruption like this then our country will be ten times better. By the way I agree with the comments on handwriting. He has a very good handwriting, he should have been a teacher.

  14. On planting trees good inicetive Mr lungu, but could have also been planting mango trees provided by GRZ.

    You could have also asked every household to plant a mango or orange tree on their yard for food and export. Even kombonis , every one should be encouraged to plant a fruit tree.

    • Bigman
      To me that is what is most annoying. How do you even determine what his government’s direction is?Nangu ni no vision this is serious.

  15. Jay jay armchair critic, who does nothing in life but criticising others, when he himself has done nothing since he came on this forum. Does anybody remember this man saying anything positive? Great people criticise while giving alternative solutions. Anybody who criticises without giving solutions has no clue either. The best is just shut up.

    • There is nothing to appreciate about a hypocrite who talks about tree planting yet he is cutting down Mukula Trees…

    • @JJ: You have nothing to contribute except the tripe you spew everyday…what a sorry life. Ka pipa wa ba sungu….

    • @ Zambian Senile !mbecile

      JJ may have “nothing to contribute”, which is 100 better than your arse licking and “anointed one” d!ck sucking

  16. #15 Spaka lilo, exactly! A brilliant and very positive suggestion my man!! If upnd could largely be like that, I would have absolutely no quarrel with them.

    • @upnd cadre,
      Are you stable in your mind?
      I thought just a few lines above you were criticizing @Spaka and Jay Jay, that “..you have made so much noise that we cannot decipher sense from nonsense, jokes or seriousness.”

      Suddenly you see sense? Who is the armchair critic?

  17. @5.3 Anonymous, thank you my friend.
    My quarrel is with people who criticise anything and everything in the name of their usually directionless parties. As I have said before, that kind of behaviour makes it impossible for the nation to identify the best alternative to the current leadership of our country. If the alternative offering itself shows emptiness, directionless and no quality we are better off with the quality that we have though not the best. Until someone better comes up, maybe myself……kikikikikikiki

  18. Malinso Malinso, I don’t think your eyes rotate 360 degrees. If you pay a drilling company K3000 for a 70m borehole, how much are the costs of ware and tear, fuel, rentals and salaries and how much will be their profit? Stop dreaming and let’s start talking about reality. How many people can afford a borehole in Lusaka, you did not even include the K800 fee to pay water and sewerage company.

  19. Stay focused Mr. President and don’t waste time listening to the tribal party’s Hallucinations. Good job!

  20. HaSpaka! Wow! Next time remove “BUT” and I will say job well done! This has been my role: Planting trees! We built a facility in Zambia and I told them to plant mangoes and other fruits. We also planted palm trees. This is my vision for Zambia! I plan to go in schools too for the same. Well done Mr. President and good contribution Spaka!

  21. I like the President’s handwriting! It is better than Hazaluza Hagain! Anyway, everything the president does is better than Childish.

  22. When I was at RTSA for fitness, one client recommended the officer for his good and clear handwriting, in response the officer replied to the compliment in a funny way that made me laugh. He said that he concentrated much on perfecting his handwriting instead of studying and that is how he ended up where he is now. That doesn’t apply to our president.

    • @Taonga: I am not sure how old you are so I can not estimate when you attended grade school in Zambia. But you seem to have this silly sarcasm concerning “handwriting” which makes no sense. For your information, GOOD PENMANSHIP was part of the school carliculum in Zambia at one point. That’s why I asked how old you are. Trust me, people of a certain age who attended school in Zambia years back will tell you how the “CHICKEN-SCRACH” you today call “handwriting” was not cool then. That’s how, once upon a time, educating children was seriously taken in our Country.

      So given the President’s age, you expect him to have have gone through some penmanship/handwriting lessons in his early years as student (pupil, as we call them in Zanbia.) And that’s what you see in his handwriting…

    • Continue…

      today. Meaning, he paid attention in school. It has no relation to the NONSENSE you are talking about here. Get a grip buddy!

  23. That is why the person you know was not commended for his handwriting! You are right! And this doesn’t apply to any of the above.

  24. HH does not deny that he got rich through inside trading in the privatization scheme and Three Mansions. His was a white collar thief job.

  25. Had ECL addressed the many allegations that surfaced against him just in past month, I would have commended him for this.
    As it is, I take this as a campaign to distract attention from his scandals. Period. And he is simply telling Zambians to shut up and not question him.

  26. Its easier to prevent than to rebuild Bwana Mutaware “Lungu” you could’ve prevented tree cutting by killing poverty.

  27. #28 general Kanene, “Had ECL addressed the many allegations that surfaced against him just in past month, I would have commended him for this.”
    Since when imwe ba Kanene? You commending President Lungu? The bembas would say ‘lusengo lwambwa’

    As for the President’s message it’s very clear, no need to read between the lines, he is simply saying ‘stop yapping and get on with the work’. The bembas would say ‘tapali amapinda apa’.

    • It is an unfulfilled condition, therefore “I take this as a campaign to distract attention from his scandals.”

      I hope you get now.

    • Am guessing you are a dude called Sianga. He is a dull Lozi dude I saw on FB supporting Lungu’s idiocy. No way there can be two dull Lozi dudes in a short space of time.

  28. Ba Chagwa, really nice handwriting, though problem ni ma Dizzy na bu Kawalala.
    Shame!
