Zambia is in safe hands under President Edgar Lungu-Luo

Headlines Zambia is in safe hands under President Edgar Lungu-Luo

President Edgar Lungu’s running mate Professor Nkandu Luo says the country is in safe hands under President Edgar Lungu.

Speaking at a media briefing in Kitwe, Professor Luo said President Lungu walks the talk and means well for the country.

She said President Lungu and the PF have laid a strong foundation that is moving the country to greater heights.

Professor Luo said the country under the Patriotic Front as seen major transformation in all sectors and the opposition now have no clear campaign message to sell to the electorates.

” We have been able to look at the foundations we made as a party when we formed government in 2011, we made a decision to focus on massive infrastructure development and our critics laughed at us but to see Zambia a prosperous nation we needed to focus on infrastructure development, any person who understands economics understands the importance of a good road network. ” Professor Luo said.

” Zambia had bad road networks before PF formed government but now with the good roads it has made trade and commerce easy especially in rural areas where farmers are able to move their produce to the markets,” she said.

And Professor Luo said the PF government is forward looking.

” We have been looking into the future as a team and we have laid a foundation and we have put into practice most of the things we had promised,” Professor Luo said.

Meanwhile, Professor Luo said the opposition UPND has no message hence resorting to violence.

She has since challenged UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to openly condemn violence and tame his cadres.

” Our critics have no message hence resorting to violence. As PF we have never had a fight in areas where we have been because we have a message. Just yesterday we heard of stories where our people where beaten by the UPND in Keembe. Any single place they go to, there is a fight,” she said.

” Zambians should begin to analyse leaders and reject violent ones. President Lungu has always condemned violence and has never tolerated it. Hakainde Hichilema is promoting violence and if he is a good leader he should condemn violence by his cadres,” Professor Luo said.

And Professor Luo said the ruling party is conducting its campaigns with strict adherence to Covid – 19 health guidelines.

” We are not having any mass rallies. We chose a strategy that could achieve the same results as mass rallies.We meet small groups of people and focus on the messages, you can have mass rallies and achieve nothing at the end of the day.

  2. Even my garden boy , Solomon can build what lungu has built if given borrowed money,

    If you tell him he can even default on repayments , I am sure he will guarantee full employment for Zambians which lungu and PF have miserably failed….

  3. That is gospel truth my mother. We are in safe hands now and beyond August 12. Viva pf viva ECL

  4. For the first time in our history, Zambians were being gassed and lynched as a result in our towns and cities under lungu……

    Zambia has never seen so much tribal divisions and polarisation, coupled with corruption and unemployment such as we see under lungu ,

    For the first time in our illustrious history , even amnesty international and called out Zambia under lungu for repression and political violence

    LADY PROFESSOR LUO NKANDU, PLEASE, DON’T WASTE TIME PA FINKULA. VIOLENCE IS PART OF HH/UPND DNA. IF IT WASN’T HH WOULD LONG CONDEMNED VIOLENCE IN HIS CAMP. BUT HE IS A FILTHLY VIOLENT PERSON TOO. HH WILL NEVER CONDEMN TRIBALISM BECAUSE HE HIMSELF IS FILTHY TRIBALIST WHO SEE ANYTHING ON HIS TRIBE LEVEL. MUTALE NALUMANGO HAS BE SINGLE-HANDED APPOINTED AS RUNNING MATE BECAUSE WHEN HH/UPND LOSES ON 12/08/2921 SHE WILL NOT PUT UP A FIGHT TO REPLACE HIM. HE HAS AVOIDED GBM, CK, etc, BECAUSE THESE GUYS CAN NEVER ACCEPT HIM CONTINUING LEADING HIS TRIBAL APRTY EVEN AFTER LOSING FOR A SIXTH TIME. HH SPENDS SLEEPLESS NIGHT ON THE NEED TO EXPLAIN HIS SUDDEN WEALTH. HH THINKS HE CAN AVOID THE…

  6. Mr. Luo I hope you haven’t severed your ties with Tasinta since that is where you will end up after August.

  7. OPPOSITION IS SPENDING NO SLEEPLESS NIGHT THAT IS FOR SURE
    PF IS PLAYING CATCH UP ALL THE TIME
    YOU CASNNOT ERASE 5 YEARS OF MISMANAGEMENT
    WITH MUSIC UP AND DOWN ALL STREETS IN ZAMBIA
    ACCEPT YOUR FATE GRACEFULLY PF

  8. HH AND HIS WEALTH ??? WHAT ABOUT THOSE IN GOVERNMENT NOW MUST WE KEEP QUIET ABOUT THEM ???
    THEIR TIME IS COMING TO ACCOUNT MAKE NO MISTAKE

  9. MMD borrowed money but did not build infrastructure. It is not anyone who borrows money can invest wisely. PF has and is investing wisely. Persons without saleable message resort to giving examples. PF message is too strong for UNPD to knock votes out of PF. As of now, PF is a better party. VOTE ECL and PF for a better Zambia.

  10. How can it be in safe hands under President Lungu when all economic indicators used to measure the health of an economy are in negative and this was even before Covid came. So what parameters are you using to issue your statement since we are using universally accepted principles ourselves as independent and objective minds.

  11. Luo’s statement would have stood tall if it was coming from an independent person, surely conflicted with a heavy jock in the neck of running mate. Madam, do you know that you inherited a very decent economy from MMD.

  12. Thanks Mum for thid message!! People should also know that underfive Halelusa Hagen. We are with ECL mum

  13. All the negative economic indicators clearly show that the country is NOT in safe hands with Lungu/ PF.

  14. President Lungu has tried jealous down. The only area I fault him is dealing with corrupt individuals. Like it or not, the president has acted where his predecessors ducked and dived. He is haunted by many bad eggs in the PF party. I’m not a PF supporter and will never be because I was one of those that predicted what this party was going to do to our country. Just like I’m predicting that UPND will be the worst thing that will happen to our country.
