Over 500 headmen from Lusangazi district in Eastern Province have pledged their support towards President Edgar Lungu and the Patriotic Front (PF) Party during the August 2021 general elections.

The headmen said they have decided to throw their support behind President Edgar Lungu because of the good leadership the President has demonstrated and the many developmental projects being undertaken in Lusangazi.

Senior headman Kanthema, Everson Mbewe, cited the declaration of Lusangazi as a district as one progressive decision President Lungu took.

He also cited connection of power to Sandwe Chiefdom through the Rural Electrification Authority and the grading of Chilongozi road from Petauke to Lusangazi.

The traditional leader added that the road that links Lusangazi and Mambwe district are also milestone developmental projects that have been undertaken in the area under President Lungu’s leadership.

Headman Kathema said it was for this reason that all the headmen in the area will rally behind President Lungu and the PF party candidates in the fourth coming general elections.

The headman was speaking in Lusangazi, when Msanzala Member of Parliament, Peter Daka delivered 500 bicycles to the headmen in all the eight wards of Msanzala Constituency on behalf of the President.

“Chisangu ward is the like a bedroom for the PF because it is the only ward that had the first PF councillor who was in opposition by then so all the headmen in this community are in full support of President Edgar Lungu, the MP Peter Daka and all candidates who will contest on the PF ticket in August this year,” he said.

Other headmen who added their voices to support President Lungu was Senior headman Sichilima from Mawanda Ward who said the PF administration has delivered development to the people.

“We have seen it all, the developments are many and it will not be fair if we tolerated other people apart from Edgar Lungu, Peter Daka and all the PF candidates in this year’s general elections,” he said.

Meanwhile headman Nyamia, Levison Phiri, also thanked the President Lungu for blessing them with bicycles and for developing Lusangazi.

“What the President has done is a commendable job and he deserves another term,” he said.

And Msanzala Constituency Member of Parliament, Peter Daka said President Lungu was concerned about the welfare of people in rural areas such as the headmen and gifted them with bicycles for their easy movements.

Mr Daka, who was accompanied by Msanzala constituency PF officials, urged the headmen to fully support President Edgar Lungu and all the PF candidates in the August 2021 general elections for continuation of developmental projects being undertaken in the area.

“I’ m just a messenger who was has been sent by President to deliver these bicycles to you because it was what you requested from him so that you use them during your movements from one destination to the other,” he said.

The lawmaker pointed out that Msanzala constituency had benefited a lot in terms of development such as the drilling and repairing of boreholes for improved water and sanitation, grading of the main roads and feeder roads.

“This is one constituency that has seen a lot of developments in all angles such as water, mobile network, roads and electricity among others,” he said.


  1. 6000 Bicycles for 500 votes that’s GOOD business sense
    Just like the economy Much developement and an unastainable DEBT KIKIKI

  2. Zambia is a Constitutional Democracy guided by the Republican Constitution. According to the Republican Constitution ECL has been elected and sworn in twice and doesn’t qualify for a Third Term in 2021. The endorsement of ECL by 500 Headmen in EP is irrelevant, illegal and unconstitutional. ECL is banking on ECZ and Concourt granting him an illegal and unconstitutional Third Term. Zambians will fight tooth and nail to resist the imposition by ECL of a Third Term. Zambians will make ECL eat humble pie on August 12,2021. ECL is running the risk of driving Zambia into Chaos. The writing is on the wall.

  3. Just shows the literacy and competence in these headman. For a mere bicycle they will vote for a thief.

    Are they aware the consequences of the economy in free fall. Are there aware hospitals have become defunct. Education sector neglected.

    Wait till austerity kicks in when the bond payments come for full payment.

    Feel sorry for these people

  4. And here you are as a upnd diaspora hyena busy shouting forward. F00lish..come August your tribal God will cry like a constipated cow

  5. KZ you will cry likes bitch. Each shawshank redemption and take some solace of how you will experience.

    Sit tight your time is up

  6. At law ignorance has no defence. It is useless to have 500 Headmen ignorant about the Law endorsing illegality and unconstitutionality.The Republican Constitution is very clear that ECL cannot contest the 2021 Elections as a PF Presidential Candidate becoz he doesn’t qualify. “A person who has held office twice as Prresident is not eligible for Election as President “. ECL was elected and sworn in twice in 2015 and 2016 and therefore he is disqualified to stand for re-election in 2021. Kwakanaka vadala! Chapwa!

  7. 500 Headmen endorsing ECL amounts to 500 votes only. These Headmen don’t even know that ECL isn’t entitled to stand in 2021 becoz he has already been elected and sworn in twice. Kwamana vadala!

  8. Because of the bicycles they have received. The problem f having fathers who are not educated. Fathers who completely don’t understand what it means by economy. If these headmen were wise enough, they were going to ask where the bicycles were in 2016,17,18,19 and 20. Tomorrow I’ll call my uncle who is one of the chief’s advisor. It’s unfair to use people’s ignorance in order to ascend to power. God will see us through and Deriver us from the hands of the wicked ones.

  9. Headmen are foolish…This is why these cheap foools were selling land for beer and mirrors to the colonists….meanwhile their children are attending Basic Schools without roofs. Even those bicycles they are riding around the village are imported from China those fooools have forgotten that Eagle bicycles were manufactured in Chipata, a company that employed loyal people.

  10. Cheap Chinese throw away bicycles to Lungu throws them to poor Zambian headmen. Ask, why didn’t Lungu give fertiliser like bicycles which is more sensible to villagers?

  11. Show Hichilema the power of initiating true development in the country. Tall talks, criticizing and spreading lies won’t benefit him in getting votes from the millions of Zambia. We are smart, we choose development over everything!!!

  12. Our point is clear if we are extremely happy with the PF government then why vote for UPND in the August elections!!!

  13. The PF government has successfully provided clean drinking water, electricity, mobile towers, better roads, etc. in most of the province. People have seen the development and that is why they are supporting President Lungu.

  14. President Lungu is busy initiating development projects across the country for the betterment of Zambians. Meanwhile, HH speaking lies over the scarcity of oxygens in hospitals and targeting the government.

  15. We have seen, majority of people are coming forward and supporting President Lungu. Now, what kind of campaign UPND will do??? Because all strategies will be a flop in front of Mr. Lungu.

  16. If people decided to vote for President Lungu only because he donated bicycles to them… Then why HH didn’t donate anything, he is the richest person in Zambia? The reality is, HH has done nothing for the people of this country because he is a selfish man!!!

  17. And, we are supporting the President for infrastructural development, improving business sectors, and upgrading our lives!

  18. SUPER KK distributed bicycles and chitenge materials thinking that the people will vote for UNIP.
    HISTORY repeats itself. collect the bicycles and any donation but show him a middle finger at the ballot.

  19. The state of medical institutions is a campaign issue.Xrays are often down,labs have no reagents doctors employed not paid, many clinics lacking basic medicines even anti malaria, you’ve to buy..this is development?

  20. Africa cant go self-reliant because the people have no objective reasoning. My family praising me for getting a loan to buy mealie meal and chicken for consumption without the capacity to pay back and they call it development? What a shame? is this a cursed nation?
