Republican President Edgar Lungu says the Patriotic Front Party has laid a foundation for development in all sectors of the economy in the 10 years that the party has been in power.
President Lungu says having laid the foundation for development the Patriotic Front is poised to take the country to the promised land of prosperity and unity.
The President said this when he opened the Patriotic Front Luapula Province Conference in Mansa District yesterday.
He says due to the good policies of the Patriotic Front Luapula Province is poised to be an economic giant, as has been witnessed by the massive investments that the province is attracting.
President Lungu cited the Mwenda – Kasomeno road as one project that will not only transform Luapula Province but also create employment to the people in the province.
“Things are happening in Luapula, this province is poised to be an economical giant, the province has good climate, soils and so much water, I am confident that Luapula will develop,” President Lungu said.
He has since called for a leadership with a new mindset and the zeal to bring development, if the country is to achieve the vision 2030.
President Lungu has told the delegates to the Provincial Conference that as the Patriotic Front Party is serious about renewing structures throughout the country, there should be no room for divisions in the party.
And Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila urged the delegates to accept the will of the people in the elections.
Earlier outgoing Luapula Province Patriotic Front Chairman Nickson Chilangwa revealed that the party in the province remains strong as evidenced by the fact that it has not lost any by elections since 2016.
Mr Chilangwa , who is also Provincial minister , says with the increased number of voters the province is aiming to increase the number of branches from the current 18000 to 20000.
He urged those that will be elected to ensure that the party continues to win elections.
“Winning elections is not about money but the heart, we need leaders that are committed to give good results,” Mr Chilangwa said.
He thanked President Lungu for giving him an opportunity to serve as provincial chairman and called on those that will be elected to ensure that their is discipline in the party.
That Is what you said in 2016, but instead you have taken us gomolla and gollogota
Development of corruption and preaching hatred and tribalism this is your maladministration and your legacy
Which promised land please, some statements mwandi.
Are you telling toddlers or big people
OMG I MUST BE A DUMB A*R*SE CAUSE I REALLY DONT UNDERSTAND THIS STATEMENT
ZAMBIA WILL NEVER GET TO THE PROMISED LAND FOR THE NEXT 25 YEARS
NOT EVER THE LORD CAN WAVE HIS WAND TO MAKE CORRUPTION AND THE MASSIVE DEBT JUST DISAPPEAR
Kikikiki promised land or you are taking us back to Egypt the land of slavery… Cyber security laws, spying on citizens, killing of innocent citizens and threats by your cadres and high commodity prices..
Of course, promised land of poverty looting and a lawless country, looked at what the dull stup1d useless president has archived, his promised land includes a bankrupt country
amab0l0 Chi colour Lungu, are u mocking us… id1ot
It’s like he researches how to annoy people in new ways daily
The foul-mouthed UPND cadres above at it again. They are only good at hurling insults at those with views different from them and not arguing against them rationally.
Edgar Chagwa Lungu you are a national disgrace. A fraud, a loser! A visionless person who lacks morals and integrity. Step down. You are a failure. The worst Zambian president!
Highs debts ,22% inflation ,fast depreciating Kwacha ,Eurobond default …Lungu’s promised land is darkness, mass poverty and depressing stats.
Amidst all the potential wealthy of our country, all lazy
Chaps who just wait for handouts think that Govt will bring food on their table. Some economic refugees are languishing in foreign countries leaving vast tracts of land and abundant water lying idle back home. Some are just insolent drug addicts. We know some of them, some are children of former ministers in the MMD Govt. So you would expect nothing from them other than the insults you see on the blogs above.
I thought we have already reached the promised Land.
Land of poverty, corruption and hypertensive hyper inflation. No thanks
For one, I support the PF infrastructure and mining policy. Look at Kafue Lower. If PF stays in power, more infrastructure will pop up, ZCCM and IDC will become economic powerhouses.
Which they failed to do in 9 years!
Which land is ECL promising to take us to? For 6 years ECL has led Zambia we have experienced violence,killings, violation of Human Rights,higher cost of goods and services,lower standards of living, rampant corruption, mismanagement of the Economy etc. Come August 12, 2021 Zambians need to free themselves from the PF bondage. Another 5 years of misrule and mismanagement of the Economy by ECL and PF will send us all to the graves. ECL and PF have completely failed to Govern Zambia and must be voted out on August 12, 2021. If they steal the Vote this time around there will be chaos in Zambia. ECL has been elected and sworn in twice and doesn’t qualify for an illegal and unconstitutional Third Term. Chamana ba dala!
And truly, we will soon land in the abyssal of economic disaster and widespread poverty.
PF HAS TO GO ZCCM AND IDC POWER HOUSES DONT CRACK JOKES ON HERE THIS SITE IS TO RECTIFY THE
ILLS CAUSED BY THIS PARTY AND NOT COMEDY CENTRAL !!!!!!!!!
This guy is scripting a populist stance detached from reality that we had especially in the dying days of UNIP. This is not fair at all — at all. The chain he is holding is actually the toilet chain; once pulled we are all flushed. I kid you not. Believe at your own risk.
Dreaming is free
I now agree with what someone said, ati maybe zambia is comedy channel in heaven.

@tikki-if you support upnd, that’s your democratic right. Don’t attack those who have views that are different from yours. In a democracy, you will place your vote on upnd, I will place mine on PF. It will be those in majority who will carry the day.
@ zambian citizen YOU ARE QUITE RIGHT ABOUT OUR DEMOCRACTIC RIGHT AND BY ALL MEANS VOTE FOR PF
IF YOU WERE AROUND IN UNIP DAYS AS SAW HOW A PROSPROUS COUNTRY WAS BROUGHT TO ITS KNEES YOU’LL UNDERSTAND THE PASSION SOME HAVE IN GETTING RID OF THE PARTY IN AUGUST
NOW IS ONLY TO WISH YOU WELL
I am just finalising the budget for the August celebrations when we win
DONT MAKE ME LAUGH :)) and we still have a meeting date in the future are you sure you wont be nursing your wounds KIKIKI
Its not disputable that PF has put up great infrastructure never seen before in the history of this country but that is self praise. How does one boast of building a very beautiful family house yet the occupants are getting poorer every day struggling to make ends meet. The PF have gotten tired and have run out of ideas. Th best they can do is to be retired for some some time and allow other players to continue where they have left.. What else can PF do which they failed to do during the two terms they were mandated to run public affairs other than running down the economy. Even the Minister of Finance is failing to come out on the way forward because he has no solutions to cure the ailing economy. He has just gone mute mode. Even the recently announced stuff by BOZ governor have no cure…
True…The infrastructure development (the link Zambia roads, bridges, hospitals, clinics etc) which your r government embarked on is massive. If money was borrowed then it was well spent. Today, Zambia is at par with diamond rich Botswana. We thank you.
plus FLYOVER ROADS….
AT WHAT PRICE AND WHO WILL PAY ????????????????????????????
OR ARE WE GOING TO CRY FOR DEBT RELIEF OR WRITE OFF AGAIN ? BECAUSE WE AFRICANS DONT UNDERSTAND ??
56 YEARS DEAR LENDERS IS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO LEARN THESE COMPLICATED FINANCE ISSUES
FORGIVE US FOR WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE DO .
How can you take us to the promised land when you do not know why the price of goods are so high in zambia? I have feeling you have printed millions of kwacha your cadre and mps are distributing.. How come its only PF MPs and cadre who have so much money and why a the banks allowing them to withdraw huge amount of money? #Do show Ubukopo in public.
First is was its ” a grobo thing”……
Then climate change
Then prices of metals on the global markets
Now its economic sabotage……..
have you no shame ?????
if the promised land is dununa reverse maybe you are saying the truth adada lungu. 10 years of PF rule has brought only misery on the people of Zambia except the few in the corridors of power enjoying. people now need to think hard about how they execute change in their lives. dont just shout change change when you have no clue about the change you want to see. political change is not about removing a bemba leader and putting a ngoni or kaonde, tonga or whatever language on the leadership position, it is about selecting a leader whose vision and passion resonates with yours.
The PF and ECL are strange beings.Numbers don’t lie
Exchange rate(ZMK/USD) :K5.5K(2011) to K22(2021)
Inflation rate:6.5%(2011) to 22%(2021)
National debt:$2.5billion(2011) to $27billion(2020)
The PF have actually taken us away from the promised land into the wilderness.
WELL SAID ABOVE I REALLY HAD A GOOD LAUGH !!!!!!!
ABOVE WELL SAID I REALLY HAD A GOOD LAUGH
We have blamed PF for the debt. How would we have spent the money? 1. High speed rail -Chingola/Mufulira to Livingstone. 2. Upgrade TAZARA to high speed network to at least 100 km/hr. 3. New railway- Chingola to Lobito via Solwezi. 4. New Railway Chipata to Mpika via Petauke. 5. New railway Mpika to Mufulira via Samfya.
These networks would have removed the need for dual carriage ways and bypasses. It was railway that brought development to Northern Rhodesia long before there were tarred roads everywhere. Every Zambian government has been more concerned about tarring township roads and ignoring railways. UNIP only woke up to TAZARA because of Rhodesia’s UDI.
Zambia may be a comedy channel in Hell which the angels switch on when they take a break from stocking the fires. It is comedy but also still enpough to cause pain.
WE AFRICANS WILL SUFFER PAIN TILL DEATH DO US PART
56 YEARS AND STILL NO0 MEANINGFUL FORWARD
WE REALLY HAVE TO TAKE STOCK OF OURSELVES
What is he smoking?
Unemployment high, inflation high, kwacha weak, trade deficit high etc which promised land are you talking about. Maybe he wants to take us all to Chawama his promised land!
Just continue printing more money Eddie! You thought printing money will bring wealth to Zambians but it did the opposite . High inflation and weak kwacha. Very soon people will be carrying wheelbarrows full of cash just to buy a loaf of bread!
Don’t know whether to laugh or cry!
The truth is if ECL and PF successfully rigs the Elections and retain Power in 2021 then Zambia is poised for Economic Ruin. Prices of Goods and Services will skyrocket and life will become Hell on Earth in Zambia. With a violent and disputed Election in August 2021 Zambia is likely to be punished thru International Sanctions. With a troubled Economy, External Debt Default, Lawlessness, Corruption etc Zambia is heading to an economic collapse.
Trouble is so many will die before we reach the so called promised land
Sofar it has only taken your account to the promised land, spare us such talks bigi Mani
A promise inspires a vision, but if there was no vision what was the promise?
What is talking about? Zambia is currently one of the poorest countries in Africa, and is identified by the United Nations Development Program as a HIPC – Highly Indebted Poor Country.
HE EC Lungu needs to stop making statements while inebriated!
Since 2016, major development is happening across the country under President Lungu.
Mulosa you sound uneducated with your senseless comment, Zip it mate.
Indeed, the PF party didn’t face losses in any by-elections. In fact, PF received the majority of votes. This shows the popularity of a ruling party.
President Lungu continuously initiating infrastructural development projects in all the 10 provinces, this will surely attract investors and help Zambia in economic growth.
What we like about the PF party is that all the party cadres and ministers have the same development vision as President Lungu. They work systematically and always show respect towards the Head of the State. Unlike UPND which is a complicated party.
Only the PF government has the capabilities to bring huge development to the country. PERIOD!
The Majority of Zambians trust President Lungu and his government that is why the party is able to serve this country for 10 years at a stretch…
Mr. Chilangwa said it right! Winning elections is not about money but the heart. And, the PF government is committed to upgrading the lives of Zambians through initiating projects in the country. PF is winning our hearts!!!!
Meanwhile, Hichilema through a few media houses spreading fake information about the government on social media. ????
President Lungu deserves another term…ECL Beyond 2021.
YEAH THIS PARTY DOES DESERVE ANOTHER TERM BUT WHERE ???
The Opposition can spread lies but they cannot hide the development that we witnessed across the country. Let them do whatever they want to get the publicity ahead of the August elections. We won’t fall for their dirty campaign. We will continue to show our support to the strong, powerful PF!
The development we see to me is basic and must be routine activity for any govt in power. Trouble is we are in the 21st century but still battling with provision of basic services like roads, water, sanitation, health, education and even food on the table. These are things that trouble poor nations. And if one’s vision is about providing these, then we are doomed. We need development that can pull masses out of poverty. Basic Infrastructure is sweet to any political party in power for two reasons: 1. it can be seen by many ignorant people as development since they don’t really understand the term itself and 2. it is opportunity to get kick backs for those responsible for making it happen. So I am not surprised why many are clapping. Until our people demand real development, we shall…

WHY HAS THIS BEEN ON FOR DAYS ??????????????????? LT ???????????????
YET MINING IN THE LOWER ZAMBEZI GIVEN LITTLE TIME ????????
WE NEED TO SAVE THAT NATIONAL PARK AND SAVE ZAMBIA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
