  1. Lately he has been full of these generic non directional statements … I am not sure if this is how close he will ever get to showing some regret of his stone age type of rule and governance

    • Edgar, meet with HH and start the dialogue if you mean what you say. For all we know it is one of those vision less statements you always make

    • True your excellency, there are aspiring leaders who do not believe in God. They are there saying “the rains are late” when you call for prayers to ask God for rains they laugh at the idea. They Shan any kind of prayers. The are bloody mansions

    • Translation= continue being docile while we rip off the country and sell off national assets. Also ignore the naked tribalism and nepotism on display.

  2. You dont know whether the lazy foooool is going or coming on the airport tarmac…why cant this lazy coward host a press conference if he wants to address the nation. Making statements when Lazy has come from campaigning.

  3. Zambia is the most peaceful country in Africa and 40th in the world, thank you Mr. President for preaching peace based on ONE Zambia ONE Nation.

  4. Calling the Church to pray for peace is admission of failure to unite the nation! KK United Zambia without always running to the church or calling on the church to work the path of peace! The way to peace is stop the corruption, regionalism in appointments to public office and talk to the people you claim to be governing through Press Conferences! Talking issues on the airport Tarmac is not being honest and is rather disingenuous for the promotion of good governance! We must move away from Religion and embrace Responsibility! Churches are too divided to work the path of peace! Churches have shed much bl00d than any other institution in the history of mankind! Be responsible Mutaware! If you have nothing to say, cover your teeth!

  5. This man is a loser with no dignity, we will have peace once he leaves office and he is behind bars for all this corruption once his immunity is stripped, wait day of reckoning is coming

    • Again I agree 10% Tulu.
      Jonathan the Drunken Mbava, has ruined Zambia.
      Zambia began to decompose as soon as Sata the God Father of Nepotism, Caderism, & Corrupt over inflation of Government Tenders took over.
      Sata moved the Road Tender board -(Creamiest Tenders Department) into his bedroom. It was free for all relatives & Cadres from there, as we now know sacks stuffed with Millions of U$Dollars were found in Willie Nsanda’s house, when he expired.
      Sata started Caderism culture when in U.N.I.P, & called them “Vigilantes”
      Then to kick us all in the teeth as a parting shot, Sata left us with a Drunken Embezzler as leader.
      THAT FOLKS IS THE LEGACY OF MICHAEL CHILUFYA SATA!

  6. Walk the talk, $42 million stolen through fire tenders and he can dare to say he follows the teachings of the Christ? And that is only a tip of the ice berg. Moreover, he has polarized the nation and imposed apartheid such that if you are not Bemba, forget about meaningful employment. No, this hypocrisy should be treated with the contempt it deserves!

    • Moreover, innocent souls have died under his watch without ever issuing a statement of regret and sympathy to bereaved families and here he is saying things he does not mean! How did this man become a Lawyer? Is he a product of leakage?

  7. Press conference will help people understand what you are saying instead of of these (TT) Tarmac Talk lyonse. No one take TT’s seriously ba Kateka

  8. “President Lungu also appealed to the church to pray for politicians and encourage them to follow and be guided by the teachings of Christ in their quest to aspire for leadership positions”.
    Was the president referring to his own ministers? i.e Home Affairs minister for directing police to prosecute innocent citizens who protest? Didn’t Jesus teach on tolerance? Didn’t Jesus say you must test my teachings? in other words, verify what i teach you. Exodus 20:16, John 18:37-38
