President Lungu’s Rally at Shifwankula grounds in Chunga Ward of Katuba Constituency to drum up support for a PF Candidate

President Edgar Lungu has reiterated his call for peaceful campaigns ahead of tomorrow’s by election in Katuba Constituency.

The President has urged participating political parties to embrace one another and emulate their leaders who are enjoying a good relationship.

Speaking at a Public Rally to drum up support for PF candidate Zacks Mwachilele, President Lungu claimed that he enjoys a good relationship with United Party for National Development President Hakainde Hichilema hence the need for their followers not to fight.

President Lungu said he and Mr. Hichilema laugh and shake hands when they meet and their families are safe and this should serve as a reminder to all cadres on the need to be peaceful.

He however reminded the electorate in Katuba to vote for the PF in tomorrow’s by election if they are to see the much needed development.

President Lungu said the opposition has failed the people of Katuba as evidenced by the lack of development in the area under the UPND.

The people of Katuba are going to the polls tomorrow to elect a new member of parliament following the demise of incumbent MP Patricia Mwashingwere of the UPND.

    • The crowd is huge, bused in obviously. But in katuba Tongas have mislead the Lenjes & the Zezulus that they are also Tonga & so PF ni no votes. Nothing. So result is obvious, that’s why Lungu has no message except to lie about friendship when he is busy jailing them. Let’s just wait for 2021 with Kambwili & his amafi & ifisushi politics & see if he will manage more votes than Nevous Mumba did

    • Mr President, Katuba is part of Zambia. Therefore, GRZ and not PF or UPND should have developed the area. I thought that was cheap politicking Mr President.

      God bless Zambia.

    • Mr President! Katuba is part of Zambia and therefore, it’s the duty of GRZ to develop every part of Zambia regardless of the political party representing the area. Thought that was cheap politicking Mr President.

      God bless Zambia.

  1. Please Christians learn something good from President Lungu and that is, able to organize big rallies in order to preach the gospel of Christ to thirsty souls.

  2. “He however reminded the electorate in Katuba to vote for the PF in tomorrow’s by election if they are to see the much needed development.”

    What kind of bullsh!t is this? This is not his personal money which he therefore can decide how to disburse. These are public funds. Everyone should be getting a fair share of the pie.

    • @Aries or Asss or whatever you call yourself, you must be only Zambian who doesn’t know that HH has instructed his MPs not to work with the government of the day. Mwanawasa once said and i quote ” mukalashalila nga matako” end of quote. Your Mbuyaz in NW Province have vowed never be in opposition in 2021 and beyond, bajimuka badala

    • Ba Aries, you need to grow up these are African politics whether you insult or not
      Lungs has the power to channel public resources wherever he wishes and no one can take to court. If the people of katuba are smart, the should vote for PF and remain Upnd cardes. African politics are not the same as western governments wake up and stop wasting your time insulting lungu

    • Muzo, the fact remains that every province of this country contributes to the national coffers at the very least by paying taxes, so him withholding resources is absolutely wrong, no matter which way you look at it. This is not his personal fiefdom. Yes he can do it but he remains absolutely dead wrong for that. This country is in precisely this predicament because of the low bar people like you set for your leaders and going, “Well, this is Africa”. So what? Are we just supposed to sit on our hands? What kind of thinking is that? We need to and should do better as a people. I wonder if there was a leadership change to someone who doesn’t like your people and they went around saying , no development unless you vote for them if you would have the same sentiments? Get your empathy…

  6. Hired mob. Katuba cannot have such a huge following of the “blind”. Some just came to see the president of Zambia kwasila. In Luanshya the mob was even bigger but we all know the results and what transpired.
    Disaster

  7. Democracy cannot thrive in the presence of ignorance and poverty. These two vices are a recipe for retardation in democratic progress. Many political parties, especially the ruling parties, capitalize on these vices to get hold onto power. This time around people are complaining of harsh economical activities but come voting season, they will be hoodwinked with a packet of opaque beer. IGNORACE AND POVERTY, will always be enemies of democracy. A hungry man will always be deprived of the knowledge to do the right thing. If such vices are kicked out, democratic tenets can be valued.

  8. I live in the area and are not happy with the level of under development wherever I have been. Even to arrange for a constituency grader was a problem for the opposition. Roads are in such a state even when the area is only 10 miles from the main post office in LSK. There are new homes coming up in the area and require a serious person to see to it that we are NOT developing another Misisi. VOTE PF

  10. Ba UPND please wake up before Kambwili’s party takes over as a second loudest opposition political party. If countries like UK can change leaders due poor leadership performance, what has been so difficult for you to retire your perpetual loser Ichilema? The people of Zambia have put a seal of rejection on HH, but surprisingly you have continued living in denial. HH takwata amano iyo, and the more he forces himself on you the more pain he shall inflict on you by losing hard.

  11. Politics of self-deceit. I have never seen such numbers of people in Katuba. Most of these are not even registered voters. I can imagine how much money has been spent to organize such a rally, it must not be less than a million Kwacha, but for what? Just to meet and dance and drink jemasoni? We don’t have any hope with such leadership. Both PF and UPND are the same. PF pays a minimum of K50 per person to attend their rallies, they even pay more according to your position yet there are no grants to institutions. What kind of people are these? God help us! This is the money from inflated cost of tenders. My appeal to the Chinese Government is that they should stop their companies from funding such illegalities.

    • So I guess PF was lying when they said they built a school and hospital in Gwembe Valley, right? Oh wait, that did happen – and with a UPND MP at that. After all, you have to show the peasants a few crumbs here and there. Now run along and continue being a gullible asshat.

  14. Where did all those people come from? Is that a real crowd? If so then our people are attending such gatherings hoping to go home with a kwacha or 2. Normal people have stopped going to listen to empty promises and to watch PF dancing kings and queens.

  15. WISDOM OF POLITICS FOR PRESIDENT LUNGU CALLS FOR MAINTENANCE OF SAFE DISTANCE AD INTERACTION BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT LUNGU AND HH TO AVOID ANY SLIT MISUNDERSTANDING OR PERCEIVED SPORT FOR HH UPND PARTY BY HIS PFS PARTY MEMBER

    HE SHOULD AVOID THE PLAN BY UPND TO BE FRIEND HIM AND CAUSE THAT FRIENDSHIP TO HURT HIS PF PARTY OR PERCEIVE HIM TO BE FAVORING THE CANDIDATE OF HH WHICH IN SINCERITY IS NOT ENDORSING BUT IMPIDLY HH WANT TO MISUSE THAT FRIENDSHIP FOR HIS 2021 CANDIDACY

    THE PRESIDENT SHOULD NOT BE DROWN AND BE FOCUSED ON CONSOLIDATING THE INTRA RELATIONSHIP IN PF AND NOT BE DRIBBLED BY HH SCHEMES

  16. I do not like Lung for presiding over a very corrupt regime but we must admit he is very charismatic. I liked the way he was speaking Tonga over the weekend.

  17. The opposition has had no control on resources to develop the area. So if there is no development in the area, its the ruling party that has failed, not the opposition.
