President Lungu at at a rally held in Magoba ward inKafue District

President Edgar Lungu says the people of Kafue district have a rare opportunity to choose whether to work with government or remain in the hands of the opposition parties that have failed them several times.

The President said the Kafue District Council Chairperson by election has come as a second chance for the people of Kafue to make the right choice of the leader they want to represent them at local government level.

President Lungu said he will still remain President of Zambia until 2021 whether the people of Kafue choose to elect or not to elect the Patriotic Front Candidate.

He said failure to vote for a candidate who will work with his government will deprive the people of development.

He said all he wants is for the people of Kafue to elect a candidate who will facilitate development in the area as opposed to a candidate who will not be allowed by his or her party to work with government.

The President said voting for a PF candidate will make it easy for government to take development to the area because the opposition has been refusing their MPs and councilors from working with government hence denying the people development.

The Head of State was speaking at a rally in Magoba ward in Kafue district where he went to drum up support for the Kafue PF council chairperson Candidate retired Brigadier General Moono Simakoloyi.

The Opposition United Party for National Development has also fielded Beatrice Kayuni as their candidate in forthcoming by election slated for Wednesday this week.

Earlier President Lungu addressed another rally at Mugurameno Primary School ion Chiawa and met with Chieftainess Chiawa and Chief Chipepo whom he assured that relief food has been dispatched to the area.

  1. President Lungu said he will still remain President of Zambia until 2021 whether the people of Kafue choose to elect or not to elect the Patriotic Front Candidate.

    Antagonistic politics is the hallmark of pf , he should have also said even if you vote for the opposition , he will still remain president till 2021 and civil servants to get used to late salaries and farmers late delivery of farming inputs and late payments for the maize sold to FRA.

    • Our president gets excited about unreasonable things? Jumping for being accused to have money. Guess he did not understand that statement as it can mean a number of things:
      1- To say we are suffering this is the guy who has looted the money?
      2- Follow him as he keeps Akasaka Kandalama.
      3- This is the Head of Corruption so be good he will give you.
      Endless statements can be extracted from Lungu’s actions. The man cannot just think straight. It a shame to our people and our beautiful country.

  4. Our President likes campaign rallies because he is addressing mainly the poor, uneducated and ignorant, but he will not hold a Press conference where intelligent journalists can grill him on the state of the economy and that is why he has run away from being interviewed by the BBC because he simply does not have a clue.

  7. ECL was speaking with no conviction. I am sure he was addressing a very small crowd. Even him could see how unpopular PF is. ECL is doubting that he will be in Power beyond 2021 even though he has secured a 3rd Term Bid. Corruption by his Govt, rising cost of living,economic decline and Mismanagement of the Economy will push ECL and PF out of Power, even with his Oiled Election Rigging Plan. People are fed up with ECL and PF and are waiting for 2021 to vote them out of Power. The writing is on the Wall.
