President Lungu also said that he did not subscribe to calls by some Patriotic Front-PF members for Northern Province PF chairperson Chungu Bwalya to resign, but however, said that the matter of Mr. Bwalya will be tabled before the Central Committee meeting to chart the way forward.

Some PF members are demanding the resignation of Mr. Bwalya following the party’s failure to win a council by-election in Lupososhi, Northern Province.

On the other hand, President Lungu said that the PF’s performance in the recent council by-elections throughout the country is a litmus test for the party ahead of future elections, adding that  UPND members  that were celebrating in one of the towns in Southern Province after winning a council election in Northern Province are at liberty to do so.

And President Edgar Lungu has described as primitive those harassing Members of Parliament that have supported the restoration of the Constitution amendment bill to the order paper in Parliament.

The head of state said that the harassment is unwarranted and does not conform to the tenets of democracy.

President Lungu has reminded political stakeholders that nobody will assume power in Zambia using violence, adding that the world is now so civilized and those seeking to take over leadership should do so without killing anyone.

President Lungu said his political rivals should wait for the 2021 General elections as Zambia is a democratic state instead of engaging in violence.

 

The President was speaking in an interview with journalists in Lusaka today after his routine jogging session in Lusaka’s State Lodge Area.

  1. “…….The head of state said that the harassment is unwarranted and does not conform to the tenets of democracy….”

    Is this man normal ? Is is he drunk 24 hrs a day ?

    • what is the job of Secretary General Mwila then? I thought as SG the comment he gave about this issue was the position of the party!!!!!!

  2. Why are we not surprised Lungu rewards mediocrity, criminality and low performance he has zero vision. Endorse him for 2021 as this man has zero leadership qualities that’s why Kaizer is the boss at State House.

  3. A disorganised party that cannot even agree on how to handle internal matters so what more when it comes to governance of the country ? This is why we have the uncertainty that is currently pertaining. One rat says one thing and another wakes up next day says another thing. How can investors be confident in a country with mixed signals?

  4. Your Excellency keep on jogging you might need that jog in 2021 to hit the nearest country for your safety.

    • Lungu is lucky he is immune, the people who should worry are;
      1. Jean Kapata (Mukula Cartel)
      2. Bowman Lusambo (donating mealie with money from questionable sources)
      3. Steady Mwale (Incomplete govt projects)
      4. Kampyongo (to many to mention)
      5. Kaizer zulu (for behaving like Castro Chiluba)
      6. Max Chongu (he may survive because he is not defending PF any more)
      7. Freedom Sikazwe (for knowing where the skeletons are burried.
      8. Dora Siliya – is safe because she will switch to UPND and be rewarded of Minister of Information in a UPND government

  5. “President Lungu has said he did not subscribe to calls by some PF members for Northern Province PF Chairperson Chungu Bwalya to resign, however,he said that the matter of Mr.Bwalya will be tabled before the Central Committee. ”

    If Mr.Chungu is no longer a scapegoat,why table his matter before the Central Committee? I thought the Central Committee meeting was to conduct a comprehensive postmortem of the ward loss devoid of any blame game so as to find winning formulae.

  6. Oh no Mr President 2021 is too far away. You want the nation to wait for in 2021? What do you intend to between now and 2021. Baba look at the mess you have caused the nation. You emptied reserves in the central bank. Kwacha is now at K15 against $1 USD. The economy is in free fall.Whats the price of meali meal again? And how much is Zambia’s foreign debt? Ba Lungu resign while you can. Let someone else take us up to 2021. Stop the until 2021 nonsense. Please bakalamba step down in national interest.

  7. Oh please, Jog on and get the hell out of my way!! There’s nothing worse than someone overstaying his/her welcome. Not after the kindness that the Zambian people have showered you with!!Enough is enough!!

  8. Tabled before Central Committes? Mr President just agree with Mwila publicly, why does PF leadership speak in tongues just to sound good when he means that he agrees with Davies Mwila and Chungu is gone like yesterday?

    • When a member is suspended for challenging him by the the same Central Committee he is quiet but look at him now without any shame speaking out.

  9. But why is he bringing in Southern Province into this story of a loss in Northern Province? It is not necessary.

    Anyway, Party Failure will be see more revolt if it does not change its ways.

  10. The way his quick to comment on easy political matters only shows that his indeed a party president not a national President…. His more inclined to party matters, and his been in campaign mode ever since he got elected from the first time…. 2020 will be boring I tell you….its party this, opposition that…. Zambians we dull, we can’t go beyond party thinking…. Matters of the economy which can benefit all, we just can’t understand and articulate …..

  11. From the comments, I see that Zambia suffers more from its own people than even politicians. If he didn’t step in, the PF losers like Mwila would want the MP to resign. Then Zambia would be forced into another unwarranted by election. The country cannot accord these unneeded elections. Money is scarce. kikikiki

  12. Up and down party are savages. Celebrating a winning in a ward ! So they are day dreaming they are already in state house. These homosexuals will cry in 2021.
