President Edgar Lungu says he will remain focused on developing all regions of the country as there is no time for politicking.

The President said his government will ensure that it facilitates investment that will bring about economic growth and job creation so as to better the living standards of the Zambian people.

President Lungu has emphasized that the PF government is now seriously preoccupied with fostering development in the country and will not be swayed from its developmental agenda.

The Head of State is accompanied to Siavonga by Presidential Affairs Minister Freedom Sikwazwe and livestock and Fisheries Minister.

And speaking earlier, Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale assured the President that the PF remains intact in the Province.

  1. That is the way to go Mr. President! Never mind HaLossers! It is a tribal organization with HaFrustrations and HaHatred up their sleeves! You are doing great job for Zambia!

    • Ba LT, chizungu chimuvuthani ka! “I’LL” is shorthand for “I WILL”. So combining I’LL with WILL is a repeatitiion and does not make sense.

      Anyway, fish farming was one of the businesses I really wanted to get using my father’s vast farmland but was frustrated with getting a loan seriously embark on the journey. This was in the MMD era. The loan was approved but mysteriously the money disappeared into a black hole. Following up was like banging your head against the wall. This is what discourages many a Zambian in the diaspora to invest back home. Especially if you are not always home/around to twist arms and sometimes give “brown envelopes.” A shame that only multi corperations with money to burn in form of bribes seem to make it in our country.

      It will take us another…

      Continue…

      It will take…

    • Continue…

      It will take us another hundred years to own that economy if the attitude towards fellow Zambians who have ideas to invest can not get help or be encouraged. Just too much red tape and subversive attitudes towards fellow Zambians who want to engage in business back home.

  2. What a joke of a man.

    Zambians have been abused and conned enough.

    This is the guy that prays with one eye open. He presides over a corrupt enterprise, and is not ashamed of it.

    We are in big trouble if this guy finds his way back into state house.

  3. The only thing he has developed is his bank account and property portfolio .The majority of Zambians have been kicked in the sea off poverty .

  4. I will say it over again & again.Mr president please or kindly apply aggressive fiscal policy.Stop procuring vehicles with V8 /V6 engines for any government officials, cut on seminars/workshops, cut on foreign trips, any procurement above say $100,000 should be approved by the president or his delegate, freeze recruitment unless “essential departments” like health on nurses & doctors, remove Deputy Permanent Secretary’s position (like Patrick Mwanawasa” , fire ministers like Sikazwe, Joyce Nonde, reduce the staff in foreign mission, suspend or fire all those with suspected frauds/corruption, no creation of new districts, remove DCs, fund essential projects only, disband ministry of religion,reduce tax, get oil from Angola,explore oil in Chama & Zambezi, emeralds in Eastern province,…

    • CONT’D…
      Eastern province, probe makula tree /fire trucks scams.Spend within budget, reduce certain taxes, ignore fools KC, siwale, and many other distractors.Don’t stand in 2021 even if the constitution allows. Be aggressive like the way you handled cholera, then you are assured of some “reserves” and confidence from stakeholders.

    • Lungu is in the sewers of corruption up to his neck to do anything about it……all those cuts you mention are a bridge too far for him, the people who are witnessing his corruption will revolt if he institutes any cost cutting.

  5. Every thing lungu does now seems like a scam to cover up his many allegations of looting and stealing…

    I told you Mr lungu , your silence on allegations of you being a corrupt theif will harm you……but again maybe you have no choice but to remain silent for fear of opening more drums of worms…

  6. Psychopaths have no conscious and even if you call names or warn them, their mindset will not change. A perpetual offender never stops committing crimes even when he knows that the cops are about to catch him.

    • From lungus skin tone , he is either drinking too much or the stealing allegations are having an effect…….me thinks he is in the looting and corruption too deep to do anything about it or deny anything.

  7. No politicng when u are busy buying councilors at k200,000 causing unnecessary bye elections shame on u!!! The hypocrite.

  8. Lungu calls the allegations of stealing and corruption against him as “politicking ” ?

    Lungu you will find out how these same politickings will follow and harrass you until the end.

    You can even tell from lungus skin tone that the allegations are taking their toll or he is drinking too much

  9. HH is a sewer of Childish! No policy, no convictions to sell but “HaDialogue cries!” HaLosser! Please go away!

  10. No counterproposal plans of developing Zambia, only hatred arising from tribal union deeply rooted in the blood! You get it? See above!

    • Mzambia wa Zamani
      The president meant developing his eSwant free gift land that is where is focus is.
      Thank you Dora Siliya and Amos Chanda for being sincere about the many gifts his excellency has been receiving form himself in his capacity as republican president. Dora and Amos did not intentionally mean to embarrass the boss, they were ignorant of the code of conduct for public servants hence speaking loudly in front of cameras.

  11. Oh No sir Mr Lungu please never mind us. Keep focusing on your personal wealth. Those mansions you are building cannot build themselves you know?

  12. ECL likes talking future instead of the present giving people false hope. How is he going to develop the country with not enough money on top of that he has a long of personal investments to worry about.

  13. Let us FIGHT corruption that is rearing its head like a snake.
    We do not want to cut its head unless nothing is done.

  14. Lungu is impervious to all the criticism of his corrupt activities which he pushes under the carpet. He can do so only for a while for the clock is ticking to his end which is not negotiable. He has grown personal wealth through corrupt deals and earned the country a burden of debt generations will struggle to settle. Zambia will be better off with this insensitive thief out of State House.
