First Lady Esther Lungu has urged youths to desist from being used as tools of political violence. Mrs. Lungu says it is not right for politicians to use youths to promote violence in whatever form.

She noted that most of the politicians promoting violence have had their time adding that they must allow youths to positively mature into leaders.

Mrs. Lungu told ZNBC News in Kitwe that a bigger part of the Zambian population is made up of youths hence the need for them to play a meaningful role in governance.

Mrs. Lungu said that she was also concerned that women and the girl child in Zambia have continued to face gender-based violence and sexual abuse.

The First Lady was in Kitwe to lobby for support to enhance service delivery at the Kitwe teaching hospital and donate to two service organizations.

Meanwhile, President Edgar Lungu has warned that there is no need for violence in politics, adding that innocent people are killing themselves while the politicians remain comfortable in their homes.

The President said that no politician, including himself, is worth dying for.

President Lungu implored parents to inculcate values that teach young people that there is no need for violence and said that he has instructed his party members to be peaceful and go out in communities to spread the good policies of the party.

The President was speaking when he addressed a meeting at Kaoma Resource Centre grounds, at which several members from the opposition also defected to the ruling party.

  1. You silly woman it’s your husbands party that is causing violence. Don’t take us for granted..give that advice to that teethy husband of yours. A first lady who lacks backbone and confidence to be Frank. You usually see this with black African first ladies. My white wife calls me out when I have done something wrong. That is true love

    • Madam First Lady, with due respect, please tell your husband to man-up and realise he is Commander in Chief and it his responsibility to protect all Zambians. PF or opposition.

    • Ba Ester, I unerstand Kaizer an Murnui are your cousins not so? Both parade with guns, pure criminals.
      Son of Kavindele survived gun fires from Kaizer, wait until Kaizer sends your son Dalitso in a comma.
      The most vulnerable man in Zambian politics is not youths, it is Ba Edgar.
      Your husband is the one been used as a TOOL for criminal activities. Did hear some people even use his plane to trade in illegal substances?
      I don’t know how to advice you, because I don’t like you Ba Ester, I only respect you.

  9. People of Zambia lets be real about facts, you think development happens out of magic? No! You are busy insult our First Lady just because she went on a tour. Some development they want to be followed, she went on a tour to bring development into our Country. Instead of insulting her we should be supporting our First Lady.

  10. Give ’em guns, step back, watch ’em kill each other
    “It’s time to fight back,” that’s what Huey said
    Two shots in the dark, now Huey’s dead
    I got love for my brother
    But we can never go nowhere unless we share with each other
    We gotta start makin’ changes

    That is the way it is, things will never be the same. Zambia as Country has no leadership at all. This why we now witnessing deaths in Politics. This is happening because the President is weak, period
