President Edgar Lungu has left for Eastern Province for a two day working visit.

The President left aboard a Zambia Air force plane at about 09 :10 hours at city airport.

On hand to see off the President, was Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General, Davies Mwila, Presidential Affairs Minister, Freedom Sikazwe and his special Assistant for Political Affairs Kaiza Zulu.

Others were Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo, Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa, senior government and PF party officials among others.

According to a programme made available to ZANIS in Eastern Province, the Head of State is today expected to commission a privately owned cooking oil plant, Missoil processing plant in Mambwe district.

Mr. Lungu is also scheduled to pay a courtesy call on traditional leaders in Mambwe and Kasenengwa districts before holding public meetings in the district.

President Lungu will later in the day hold a meeting with party officials at Chimfule lodge in Mambwe district.

The President is tomorrow expected to hold two other public meetings in Kasenegwa constituency to drum up support for the PF candidate Sensio Banda for the Kasenegwa parliamentary by-election.

The Kasenegwa by-election was necessitated following the death of the Member of Parliament (MP) Victoria Kalima who died in July.

The seat is being contested by three candidates who include Sensio Banda standing on the PF ticket, John Zulu will contest under the People’s Alliance for Change (PAC) while Abel Ngwenya will stand on the United Prosperous and Peaceful Zambia (UPPZ) ticket.

    • State house has bed-bugs. From N/W province, straight to Zim. From Zim inauguration straight to eastern province.
      What time does this Lazybum work? The country is on it’s knees but all this clown does is travel.
      Our constitution gives too much power to presidency. Its a good thing if you have a leader like Mwanawasa but when u have a lazy thief as president, the country is taken back 100 years.
      Instead of encouraging hard work & investment for economic development, all he thinks about is sinking the country into unsustainable debt & auctioning land & national assets to Chinese, Lebanese coz its easy to steal & get kickbacks. No wonder IMF has packed their bags.

    • Maloza – I think I will propose a new addition to the constitution which is that a President should hold a minimum of four press conference at State House and invite questions from members of the Press both International and local…we can not have a situation like this where this guy cowers away from responsibility and executive decisions; he is at home on the platform talking to his members soon he will start campaigning for 2021.

    • *..hold a minimum of four press conference in a year (like those EPL managers who are contracted to speak to the press after a game win or lose)

    • We successfully managed to block him thats why he is now using “Maloza” as his stage name.

      It doesn’t pay to post insults

    • Umodzi Kumawa! Wako ni Wako! Kwao ni Kwao! Let this sloganeering resonate around the country for that is what Zambian patriotism has degenerated to! Seriously a federal governance system is in the offing as a serious alternative to sown seeds of discord that have taken root!

    • @1.3 maloza. Mwanawasa was equaly worse when it comes to travelling. He taught RB how to forever be on the plane. LPM had no fiscal discipline when it came to travelling. He brought the culture of endless travelling. I recall mr SATA, while in opposition, mockingly telling zambians not to pay certain taxes as they would all go to LPM’s travel expenses.

  1. There goes our Lazy Lungu not content with short visit to Harare …he adds his usual 2 day so called “working visit” to Eastern Province when he knows there are by-election soon even though his party is the strongest party on the card. Campaigning is more of a priority to him than taking responsibilities at State House or the economy.

    • Kasenegwa by-election is contested by 3 parties; PF and two unknowns …surely how does a President leave State House to go and campaign when the economy is in a downward sparrow..even IMF has withdrawn its Rep…his top on the list is going to play in Eastern Province…serious lack of leadership and priorities.

      Lol you have made my day.90 % of the president’s movements are unnecesary,so how does he feel when he stops the wheel of govenment from moving as the entire state machinery rushes to the Airport to see him off?
      Worse when he goes by road the entire Lusaka stops to see him off,how does he feel?What does he think goes through the minds of those people who see him dashing to the airport when he knows that we know that we have seen nothing out of his travels apart from that shamefull video of our president dancing “..lololo”.
      But i have also noticed that the delegations are beginning to get smaller,are his Ministers now fatigued of loitering at the airport?

    • Imagine being escorted twice to the airport in a space of 10 hours…someone who has a well functioning brain would sit down and think this is a sheer waste of fuel and resources..let me just go alone with my entourage not this insecure good for nothing President!!

    • I will assume this is a genuine question and not saccusm of sorts . so I will answer the question for you. The president has a lot of face to face meetings with different gvt officials more so his ministers. Mostly they meet at state house but to best use time when he travels they meet at the airport. The president doesn’t always drive straight to the plane but uses the gvt VIP launge for such meetings. Hope that helps explain the escorts for you. For the vice president it’s simply protocol. And its practiced world over

  2. When are the by elections?Even if it was to campaign how does he justify wasting 2 days for campaigns when his friends like RB and Mwanawasa could go to Eastern Province and come back within hours.He makes eastern province sound as if he is going to the Far East.What time is the man attending to his duties.For those not in the know,a president has an office like any normal worker,he receives work in form of files and other documentation.Seeing that President Lungu does not appear to like his office so how is his work being attended to?Please dont tell me that it is Amos and his friends that are attending to his workload we have we all just recently been exposed to how immature Amos is i wonder what decisions can come out of Amos’s head.

    • He has nothing to do as he cowers from responsibilities …Amos is the default President hence he has the courage to call others dogs as he is untouchable and he knows it.

  5. “The President is tomorrow expected to hold two other public meetings in Kasenegwa constituency to drum up support for the PF candidate Sensio Banda for the Kasenegwa parliamentary by-election.”

    Surely does Sensio need support? What is wrong with this President…when is he going to drum up support for the Zambian economy and put 100% effort …when is he going to host a Press conference?

  6. “The seat is being contested by three candidates who include Sensio Banda standing on the PF ticket, John Zulu will contest under the People’s Alliance for Change (PAC) while Abel Ngwenya will stand on the United Prosperous and Peaceful Zambia (UPPZ) ticket.”

    Imagine the whole Head of State flying to EP in ZAF plane to go and campaign against PAC and UPPZ…these are wasted years indeed.

  8. Lungu going to promote tribalism and the fellow tribesmen don’t realize that they’re being used. Fellow countrymen a tribesman is nothing but just that, he is not the only one to take of of in fact others can do it better just like living off handouts from people afar

  9. Trib.al Hacks now blogging Lazy “trib.es” Jay Gay. What else can he say? I am proud that I exposed this lazy upnd cadre, tgese days he has niwhere to hide and he is busy exposing his trib.al self. Why he was arguing with me in the first place, only a trib.al thinking mind like him can explain. And why am I able to tell that Lazy Jay Gay is triba.l? Because like Triba.l Hacks, he is unable to apologise or criticise anyone of his tribe.

  10. Your Excellency, ignore these detractors go and do your business in eastern. Including campaigning, you are fully entitled. If trib.al Hacks wants to go and campaign among the rat eating Nsengas and the Bandas that he hates he is also free and entitled. We know that he has no candidate in Kasenengwa but as an opposition he can go and de-campaign the PF candidate, take along with him Laura Miti if he wishes……kikikikiki….
