Headlines Let no one disturb Zambia’s peace-President Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has reiterated that no one should be allowed to disturb the peace and tranquility which Zambia has enjoyed since time immemorial.

President Lungu said Zambia is bigger than any individual as such hence no one must disrupt the peaceful environment in the country.

The President has since appealed to the church not to relent in praying for the country’s peace during and after the August 2021 general elections.

ZANIS reports that President Lungu was speaking during a thanks giving service for the silver jubilee of the establishment of the Bishop Jhone Osmers house, built by the Chipata Anglican church in Chipata yesterday.

President Lungu also commissioned the house which has been named after the first Bishop of eastern Zambia.

President Lungu also praised the Anglican Church for the work it has continued to carry out to uplift people’s lives.

“The Anglican church has been actively working with the government in the provision of quality and health nation through the establishment of several health centres and schools,” president Lungu stated.

He stressed that the church has not only grown in the number of years it has been in existence, but in good deeds as well as.

The President said the church has is involved in providing timely counsel to the government on various issues affecting the country.

“I also wish to commend you for the silent diplomacy approach you have adopted in engaging the government,” he stated.

He has since encouraged the church to continue with good works for sustained national peace and unity.

And during his homily, Archbishop of the Anglican Church for Eastern Zambia, William Muchombo, praised government for implementing national health guidelines that have ensured that the Covid-19 is not exacerbated in the country.

“We thank you Mr. President for handling the pandemic very well, though we have lost some of our beloved ones,” the Bishop said.

Earlier, National Guidance and Religious Affairs Minister, Godfridah Sumaili thanked President Lungu for providing an empowerment scheme to the churches which she said will result in sustainable programmes to the churches.

Eastern Province Minister Makebi Zulu also extolled government for several developmental programmes in the region.

“Your Excellency, what you have done in the province is visible for everyone to see, we have 30, 000 beneficiaries on social cash transfer, we have clinics, schools roads among others,” he said.

  1. I thought forcing a 3rd term on Zambia is disturbing her peace. I suppose we are now used to double speak!

  2. True, a third term when the economy is crushing and stealing is at its highest. The man has failed let others rule too than this selfishness and lawlessness. The Hatembos are running for their lives and you failing to protect them

    PF and Church vs GRZ.

    PF time out. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? Third term you call that peace?

    The church supports third term, and we don’t.

    We want GRZ back,”We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.”

    Are you saying we only have peace only if GRZ allow third term?

  6. Enemies of Zambia, internal and external, are trying to bring the democracy down. Their only weapon is anarchy, violence and social unrest. But they will be defeated. We are with Mr President.

  7. Churches can play a pivotal role in guiding the society. It is, in fact, the duty of every right thinking person to uphold the peace and harmony. We are with you sir.

  8. By that the…….

    corrupt moron dictator wannabe means don’t challenge the status quo of high debt, unemployment and PF corruption……

  9. Those celebrating the falsehood that President Edgar Lungu is not eligible to contest 2021 General Elections are in fool’s paradise. The selfish opposition leader is taking them for a ride. The Constitution of Zambia is the supreme and no one can surpass it. Those day dreaming need to wake up and smell the coffee. According to Article 106 (3) and (6), a presidential term of office that ran from 25 January 2015 to 13 September 2016 can’t be considered as full term, as it is less than three years. Even the constitutional court, in its judgment has said that the Presidential term of office that ran from 25th January 2015 to 13th September 2016 and straddled two constitutional regimes cannot be considered as a full term.

  10. This game, ‘They Want to Kill Me’ has lost all the charm. Even a child won’t believe in it now. Your master needs to find out something new that people will believe. Someone needs to tell him that he has already lost the plot.

  11. There you are. That’s what is called setting a narrative. They have been pumping fake news all the time and you had been gulping it happily. You seem to have the IQ enough to think rationally. Why don’t you read the judgement given by Constitutional Court in this matter? You are the classical example of how anti national elements brainwash people and use them to disturb peace in Zambia.

  12. Zambia is known to be a peaceful country. We can’t allow anyone to disrupt it at any cost. We will do whatever it takes to protect the peace in our country.

  13. I am confident that the peace and tranquillity in Zambia will be eternal. No one can destroy it. Not even the one who is playing at the hands of foreign mafia.

  14. Peace is the identity of Zambia. Anyone who tries to damage the peace, is anti national and will be handled accordingly. There is no place for violence in Zambia.

  15. Peace is the way forward. Zambia has been the guiding light has shown the peaceful way to neighbouring countries. Under the leadership of President Lungu, Zambia is further consolidating the peace in the country.

  16. Do you really think, whatever you vomit here affect the public opinion? Like your master, no one takes you seriously.

  17. I THOUGHT ECL IS COMMANDING HIS PF CADRES WHO FOLLOW UPND AND DISTURBE THEM WITH GUN, PANGAS AND STONES? i THOUGHT THE PRESIDENT IS PEAKING TO KAMYONGO WHO IS NOT POLICE IG BUT ALWAYS ON HIS TOYS OF SPEAKING VIOLENCE PRETENDING TO SPEAK OF PEACE?
    I THOUGHT ECL IS TALKING TO NAWAKWI AND CHILUFYA TAYALI WHO SPEAK WITHOUT SAME ON WANTING TO ELIMINATE HH
    AWE BA ECL, PLEASE TALK TO YOUR CADRES TO MOVE OUT OF STATIONS AND MANY OTHER EVIL GAMES.

  18. Total hypocrisy from a thief. This fool should be jailed and investigated for all the stolen wealth.

    Can’t wait after august 12. Change us coming. The masses are fed up with PF’s antics

  19. THE DEATH OF 2 CIVILIANS MEANS NOTHING TO THE PF WHO CALLING IT COLLATERAL DAMAGE ??
    WHAT ABOUT ALL THE COVID DEATHS BEING UNDER REPORTED BY THE MINISTER
    AND WHY ARE MOST ZAMBIANS SHUNNING THE VACCINATION ?? BECAUSE WRONGLY THEY BELIEVE THE PRESIDENT HASNT HAD IT
    WHICH MOST KNOW HE HAS AND NOW PRESUMABLY TOO ASHAMED TO ADMIT TO THE FACT

  20. @Dorren, Timba, Mundia, above…. all the same person. Trying to appear like people are ‘supporting in numbers’

  21. I can not stand this useless man Lungu. I wish he could go somehwere and never come back. Utter rubbish waste of time dealing with such.

  22. If ECL stay away from third term there can be peace in the country. May the courts come in the open and teach us on the eligibility clause in the consistitution, the way it was done to sensitize the people on dead bill 10? Does the president qualify to stand for elections? This can be the source of confusion

  23. But your PF came on the scene in 2011 and disturbed the peaceful economy that MMD had left. Now its chaos, defaults ,unsustainable debt and faling GDP yet you want peace Lungu?

  24. How many years make a presidential term? Has lungu ruled Zambia for more than 10 year. Ithought a term is 5yrs.Wanshi lungu muletina? Let him stand and if you think your party is more popular than PF defeat him and his party through the Ballot. You can call Lungu all sorts of names but to tell you the truth there is no credible politician at present in Zambia who can do better than Lungu. Uyo HH mulumbula has got no stamina to take Zambia to economic heights. He is just another high collar criminal who is specialised in manipulating monetary figures like he did during privatisation. He was a simple man and suddenly became a millionare with no traceable business. What a joke? As it is just now, lungu is the right person to lead till other political leaders show political maturity. Advice…

  25. ZAMBIA CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO SINK FURTHER INTO A BOTTOMLESS PIT
    IT HAS TO BE SAVE FROM LUNGU AND THE PF
    WE THE PEOPLE NEED HOPE AND AS OF NOW THERE IS NO HOPE JUST DISPAIR !!!!!!!
