President Edgar Lungu launches a PF Manifesto for the next 5 years

Headlines President Edgar Lungu launches a PF Manifesto for the next...

President Edgar Lungu has launched a five-year Patriotic Front (PF) Manifesto at Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka to be implemented between 2021 and 2026.

The Head of State said the PF Government would create a Stabilization Fund to cushion challenges and work towards eliminating road taxes in light of the road tolling program being implemented in Zambia.

He said the PF Government would roll out affordable loans to Zambians, recapitalize local banks to build capacity and reduce interest rates, consolidate taxes into single tax paid by companies as well as investigate and quickly prosecute cases reflected in the Auditor General’s Report to fight corruption.

President Lungu had since congratulated the Given Lubinda led experts for a well-thought-out Manifesto which was a measurement tool for the ruling party giving direction to PF.

He said the Manifesto created a new covenant with the Zambian people as a tested and experienced party whose focus was to make every Zambian count further promising better days to come.

The President said challenges affecting key economic sectors were not limited to Zambia alone as they had been compounded by the COVID 19 pandemic thereby affecting job creation and cost of essential commodities.

He said the PF Government remained committed towards debt servicing stressing that investments were wisely used to invest in infrastructure development which among others saw the energy deficit addressed.

President Lungu said the Manifesto was in line with the Economic Recovery Plan launched last year to address fiscal matters by reducing inflation and debt accumulation in order to spur growth.

He directed PF Secretary General Davies Mwila to give the document to all aspiring candidates at levels to campaign in line with the new Manifesto.

And PF Secretary General Davies Mwila said the new manifesto gave an account of all the key policies, programs, and projects that the PF initiated and implemented since forming Government in 2011 and the next five years.

Mr. Mwila said the Head of State had led a solid foundation for future development of the nation.

  1. Nothing on how you will control the spiraling exchange rate, the impending increases in fuel and electricity etc etc.

  2. If the PF failed to deliver on their last promises of more money, more jobs etc. They won’t deliver on this again. A new covenant can only come when the previous one has been fulfilled like the old testament covenant was replaced with the new one when Christ fulfilled the law. PF have failed and don’t deserve any chance especially with the fact that they break the law of the land all the time to cushion themselves and preserve themselves or insulate themselves by manipulating the constitution. Zambia needs a leader who will harness all the resources Zambia has and build a stable economy where everyone will be able to afford rather than an economy that hinges on handouts.

  4. I spent sleepless nights working with others on this history making documents. It feels good to finally share it with the amazing zambian people. Our people can now read exactly how we plan to make Zambia even better for them and their future generations. I love my country and my people. I am drunk with patriotism.

    Meanwhile our brothers the upnd diasporans are been killed by police there abroad. Very sad. Rip George floyd, you should have moved back to Africa and you would have still being alive.

  7. Lies and more lies. What do you expect from a convicted thief.

    The manifesto does not highlight any of the current economic hardships. How does the PF plan to pay off the debt.

    There’s no medicines in hospitals. Since 2011 which PF politician or cadre has been investigating on corruption and proceeds of crime even though the auditor general has brought to our attention of public theft and money laundering.

  8. KZ, yet another useless document full of lies from the most corrupt PF government ever to see the light of day. And yes, we all know that you are threatening all media including LT that they must obey orders. But August 12 is not far off, and then you will be in JAIL and LT will publish a photo of you behind BARS.

    The majority of Zambians don’t drive but are unemployed, so this is a useless desperate move….

    An empty useless document similar to the
    “more money in your pockets” slogan…..

  16. For Govt in Power u start by reviewing the targets in the 2016 Manifesto. If the targets were not met then suggest how those targets are going to be met. The 2016 Manifesto promised to put Money in the pockets of Zambians and jobs for the People. PF failed to meet the targets so what are they promising in 2021-26 Plan Period? What about inflation, exchange rate,jobs etc targets? How will the PF Plan 2021-2026 improve the welfare of Zambian? What will PF do in the next 5 years that they failed to do since 2016. This is not a Manifesto but a wish wash list. Not buying this “Manifesto”. Straight into the Dustbin.

  17. The Secretary General should upload this Document on their website so that we can all have access to it and appreciate how they are going to do it for mother Zambia.

  19. Compare this manifesto to that one produced by others. Thumbs up to the level headed Given Lubinda for helping on this well thought out document unlike the other one authored by South African students lacking in Zambian political knowledge

  20. Continue ranting and laughing like mad cows. We are continuing with our programmes. Your tribal leader is no where to be seen. You think you can f00l us by having people post on his social media while he lies lifeless in coma.

  21. PF 2021-2026 Manifesto has not been published yet. That was a Manifesto speech delivered by HE President Edgar Lungu. A speech and Manifesto are mutually exclusive.

  22. Governing parties are judged on their records and not on their manifestos. It’s their challengers who can be judged on their manifestos. Having said that, election manifestos aren’t serious documents for running government. They’re campaign documents written in poetry whereas government is run in prose. They’re therefore not to be taken too seriously.

  23. Hahahaha

  25. @KZ are produced by Economists and other Economic and Financially literate Experts. Such documents are not produced by Election Riggers like u. That’s why the Manifesto is of poor quality. What happened to the promised Money in the pockets and creation of jobs? PF broke its 2016 Covenant with the People and it break this fake Covenant with the People. PF is in Govt right now so what stops it from abolishing the Toll Roads now and giving the People soft loans now? This is a New Manifesto full of falsehoods.

  26. Same old stuff every 5 years, PF fye awe, Please God give us a Chakwera this year. We are tired of PF failures
    Iyi Manifesto is like singing a song, ”uno mwaka tulechinfya” on 31 December 2021 @ 23:59

    Mark my words there will be no PF after they lose election, They are united now for one reason, to delay impending prosecution for those who have embezzled public funds. Bakapasangana
