President Lungu should rule beyond 2026 declares Bowman as he files in his application to recontest Kabushi

Share

Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has declared that President Edgar Lungu should rule beyond 2026. Mr Lusambo who is also Kabushi Member of Parliament said President Lungu still has a lot to do for Zambia.

He said the outcome of the 2021 elections is already decided and that Zambians should now start looking at having President Lungu’s reign extended beyond 2026.

Mr Lusambo who is also PF Copperbelt Province Coordinator was speaking on Friday when he addressed a huge crowd that escorted him when he filed in his application to recontest the Kabushi seat.

He stated that there is no way President Lungu could lose the elections in August going the huge support he is enjoying across the country.

“All these people are here not because of Bowman Lusambo, they are here because they love Edgar Chagwa Lungu and you want to tell me that they will not vote for him? You must be joking!”

Mr Lusambo explained that he is seeking a second term as Member of Parliament for Kabushi in order to complete a number of unfinished projects for the constituency.

“We have done very well but we still have some projects on paper which we need to complete in the next five years,” he said.

“So far the roads are being worked on. We have opened a number of police posts which has reduced crime incidents and Kapalala Market is being worked on,” Mr Lusambo said as he dropped his application letter

  1. He knows what he is benefitting.
    He knows the hard life before he
    Joined PF and became a Minister.
    He fears for the wealth he has
    Accumulated and how he will account for it.

  2. Never wrestle with a pig in the mud because it will become victorious. That’s the feeling Zambians get in trying to make sense of Lusambo. Gutter politics!

  3. Another wamu yayaya mentality. Comes with failures. Real leaders groom others for future leadership & to ensure continuity. Failures want to cling to a position. PF has failed

  4. Edgar Lungu no doubt approves of this statement from Bowman Lusambo. In any case, he has also said as much. It’s the beginning of the Musevenization of Zambia and its politics.

  5. The constitution does not permit president Lungu to contest elections after 2026. As should always be, only two terms per president. That is democracy Bo Lusambo appears unlearned. Kikikiki

  7. Look at the dull intelligence of Hon. Bowman Lusambo who doesn’t care if the constitution is not followed. This is a tiger who wants to please President Lungu not the people, or a nation. Such people with stiff necked characters cannot bring effective economic development to our nation.

  8. Never allow sycophancy to enable abuse of the constitution. We would all have loved Obama to go for a third term in the US but the CONSTITUTION restricts. Bootlicking and Constitutional imperatives are two different things. I hope this has not broken the Cybercrime laws mwe… awe shuwa! Saulos ninakuuza kuti ucosepo ici ci LT pa laptop na iwe!

  9. IMF not giving GRZ funds = leaders of PF.

    How can IMF give funds when we looking to President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

    “We are united by our commitment to protecting our country as our oath says, from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And by our commitment to enforcing our country’s laws and to ensuring the civil rights and the civil liberties of our people,” Garland said in a speech at the department on his first day as attorney general. “The only way we can succeed and retain the trust of the American people is to adhere to the norms that have become part of the DNA of every Justice Department employee since Edward Levi’s stint as the first post-Watergate attorney general.”

  10. Congratulations bro lusambo for successfully filing. I am 100 percent sure you will win that seat again. As did my president I am so confident of his victory such that I have declared him a winner already and also that is why I have vowed to run naked and dance to macarena naked if pf lose. Why can’t hh agree to do same when upnd lose

  12. If ECL gets away with a Third Term he will bring Bill10 and Rule Zambia forever. We can see the shades of One Party State Dictatorship coming back to Zambia. Trouble ahead 4 Zambia ahead.

  13. “As I said at the announcement of my nomination, those norms require that like cases be treated alike. That there not be one rule for Democrats and another for Republicans. One rule for friends and another for foes. One rule for the powerful and another for the powerless. One rule for the rich and another for the poor. Or different rules depending upon one’s race or ethnicity.”-Merrick Garland

    PF time out. As incumbents there’s no fairness in your bones.

  14. Really laughable…this guy was a stonethrower and muscle for hire in MMD but in PF he is a full cabinet minister with the ear of the President…that should tell you why the economy is in such a mess…only Lungu can give thugs like him jobs in ministries.

  15. Why are we not surprised that chaps who joined yesterday after the death of Sata like Paul Moonga and Lusambo are they ones who want Lazy Lungu to rule forever…they know that their loyalty is not to the party but to an individual like those bodyguards that surround the Druglords!

  19. Unemployed computer scientist, you think we care about losing 1 seat when we have majority parliament and the presidency? Even your wives are voting pf but are telling you that they will vote upnd to make you feel good. It is exactly what they do when you confront them about cheating on you. They will tell you anything to keep you content and yet they sneak behind your back and are transported in the back of my tinted range rover

  20. KAIZER DONT BE DUMB
    ALL I PUT WAS JAC0B Z’UMA and ACE MAGAS*HULE TACTICS COMING INTO PLAY HERE
    MY MOUTH DOESNT NEED TO BE WASHED LIKE YOURS

  21. Lusambo is drunk with Power. We voted KK out to introduce Multiparty Democracy and Lusambo wants to take us back to the One Party State Dictatorship under KK. On August 12 Zambians must vote wisely to rescue our Constitutional Democracy.

  22. Bowman Lusambo’s desperation is alarming. After Zambians fought so hard to remove KK’s One Party State Dictatorship Lusambo wants to take us back to such an oppressive System for the sake of Power and Personal Benefits. That’s being shortsighted and dangerous.

  23. This is what happens when you have grade 7 failures as ministers. Lusambo is a complete dunderhead. Same thing for Kaizar Zulu and his buddy lazy Lungu. All these thugs need to be thrown out in August by the Zambian people. We can do better than this. We can’t afford to continue having thugs and criminals destroying the country while we stand idly by. Vote these clowns out!!!

  24. Ichi chena chisushi. Bushe ninshi kanshi? How does a country with people who have brains have this guy in leadership? The all world is awed by these hopeless so called leaders.

  25. STOP THAT MADNESS, HE HAS DISTROYED ENOUGH. IF YOU WANT TO WORK ON HIS FARM THAT’S YOUR PRIVATE MATTER.
    HIS MENTOR MUGABE DIED A MISERABLE MAN, EVEN REFUSED TO BE BURIED AT HEROES ACHRES HE CREATED BECAUSE OF SWEET POWER.

  26. What We’re gonna give ECL is his last tenure this 2021.
    Beyond 2026 ECL packs his bags out’a State House. That’s the way the game goes.
    But even after 2026; I do not see kleptoh² anywhere near the perimeters of State House.
    God through us will usher in a new leader for the elite people of this great Zambian Enterprise.
    I submit.

  27. Lusambo is in fact referring to wanting ECL to hold office for the fourth time in 2026, if he holds for the third time in 2021

  28. Such rhetoric should not even be making news, this is so embarrassing that a cabinet minister is ready and willing to break the law just so that he can remain a minister. How I wish the president could respond and counsel the minister for such reckless pronouncements. While he is free to utter whatever he wants in the name of bootlicking, Lusambo should be taught that only him as a member of parliament has no limit to how many terms he can be as an MP. It is totally different and we know how contentious this issue hence the need to be sober in making such utterances.

  29. Why is it that PF Cadres don’t trust Concourt Judges to re-confirm ECL’s Eligibility? Petitions made by Citizens in terms of Article 52 of the Republican Constitution should be heard and determined by Concourt. A Ruling will be given by Concourt as to whether or not Lungu is eligible for Election in 2021. Let Concourt decide after Nominations are closed. Article 52 of the Republican Constitution was not Repealed so any Citizen can challenge ECL’s Eligibility in terms of 106 (3) of the Republican Constitution. 4

  30. Lusambo is Right. If Lungu is allowed to Steal a Third Term in 2021 Zambia will be transformed from a,Constitutional Democracy to a One Man Party State Dictatorship and Lungu and PF will Rule Zambia forever. It is for this Reason that Lungu’s Third Term Steal must be stopped at all costs. Concourt after Nominations are closed on May 14,2021 must adjudicate Petitions filed with them against Lungu’s Third Term Steal. Concourt should hear and determine the Petitions filed in terms of Article 52 of the Republican Constitution. Concourt should handle these Petitions against ECL’s Eligibility in a Professional and Objective manner.

  31. Didn’t this man say he was going to stand in Southern Province. Empty words for sure. We don’t need such charlatans in 2021 and beyond.
