President Edgar Lungu confers with Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila and Defence Minister Davies Chama before departure for Japan at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport

President Edgar Lungu is today expected back on the Copperbelt barely a few days after he toured the Province.

According to a notice issued by PF Copperbelt Provincial Chairman Nathan Chanda, President Lungu will be in Kitwe for two days.

“This notice serves to inform and invite all PF party members, sympathizers and the general public to come in numbers to welcome the Head of State in Ndola,” Mr Chanda said.

“His Excellency President of the Republic of Zambia Dr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu will this Friday 19th July, 2019 visit the Copperbelt Province on a two days working visit in kitwe. His Excellency President Lungu will land at the Simon Mwansa International Airport in Ndola in the afternoon 15.30hrs and proceed to Kitwe.”

He added, “All are invited to come and welcome the President to the Copperbelt.”

Some observers feels the frequent trips to the Copperbelt by President Lungu point to a panic situation that has gripped him following the party’s seemingly loss of popularity.

  1. Frustration , desperation and corruption when them talk about about this election day. Anyway my Swiss white wife thinks that Zambians are not ready to be helped or saved from poverty. She says we lack the will power to hold politicians accountable and we are very docile whilst our friends in Sudan fight for what is right. No life has ever been spared in a revolution. We are cowards. Anyway me and my wife elisa are going on our holidays to malta today

    • Then he wants his friends to only have 60 days to campaign. Let him also frequent Western and Southern provinces.

    • LT pay attention on security on this website.
      I see other people’s emails. And I suspect my email was recently exposed because I get emails from PF thugs from their Secretariat and those frequent fliers on Gulf Stream jet.

    • Lungu is the greatest time waster who accessed the presidency by sheer luck. Zambia is living wasted years. Totally wasted years. Zambians should never have entrusted the most clueless individual to the highest office in the Land. Every young voting Zambian serious about the future and posterity of Zambia must vote–and must work doubly hard to vote out Mr. Clueless.

    • Another campaign trail —– We need to start asking how much tax payers money is going into electioneering for the PF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We pay taxes to get clean water, electricity, good roads, etc etc etc,…………. we get none of this — all they do is hand out meal meal, chitenges, cash in favour for your vote !!!!!!!!!!

  2. “This notice serves to inform and invite all PF party members, sympathizers and the general public to come in numbers to welcome the Head of State in Ndola,”….this is soo counterproductive. 15.30 people should be on their grind but you’re busy urging them to head to the airport to ‘welcome’ someone that’s come for ‘work ‘ causing unnecessary traffic jams.

    • It looks like the C/Belt has become his secondary home!! He is there every week, so what’s the point of going to welcome someone who actually lives there?? He probably has some pronouncements to make about KCM. Since he usually talks from the airport tarmac.

    • Lazy Lungu is annoyingly very predictable, I did state earlier this week that when he flies in from Nairobi he will head to Kaputa …he has no concept of productivity as he is even asking people to turn up to welcome him 15:30…he is a clueless man who does not understand that less productivity costs the nation millions of dollars which goes against his so called austerity measures. I feel for the new Finance Minister having to work with such an empty vessel.

  3. I have never seen him moving with his wife on any trip. Is he proud of her? The first lady is never on her side on such trips.

    • He is a playboy …he is ashamed of his wife now he has got some stolen loot..I feel for anyone who has a wife at State House an goes on these trips with these kaponyas like Lazy Lungu. He should have taken her to Kenya as that was a State visit.

  4. When is this guy going to just sit down and do his work instead of moving everyday from one place to another? We’re not against him going around to inspect the so called projects, but if he decides to inspect projects, he doesn’t need to go and meet cadres and hold a mini rally. It’s a waste of time. ECL has a helicopter which can take him from one corner of the country to another more than five times a day. If he wants to inspect projects he can go straight to the location of the project without attracting the attention of the public and disturbing other people’s programs so that people can be productive instead of going to welcome him. The economy is on it’s knees yet the president goes to officiate a church fundraising function. What a waste.

    For these frequent trips? Does he not have people who can do the job
    For him?

  7. President always on the move . Never sits in his office for self reflection. These movements costs money and he will never adhere to any austerity measures that is why HH said Dr Ngandu will be swallowed in the general mismanagement of PF.

  11. How come the President is referred to as “Dr.” I thought his excellency stated that he did not wish to have this title given to him. After all, it is just an honorary degree, nothing earned by hard work or academic research.
