No Need For State Of Emergency – Pres. Lungu

Pres. Lungu SuitPresident Edgar Lungu says he will not enforce a state of emergency despite the political violence that is being experienced in the campaigns.

The Head of State who is currently in Uganda has reaffirmed his call to the political players to stop violence.

Violence has been a major sticky point in the ongoing campaigns with the church having twice sat political parties to urge them to renounce violence but political related deaths have so far been recorded.

President Lungu said he will not yield to the temptation as he believed the problem could be solved without resorting to the drastic step of imposing a state of emergency.

The country is gearing up for elections that a little over a month with the competitive spirit of the election pushing political players to some unorthodox methods.

    God fearing president, u are going back to plot one.we dont want change.

    Certainly there is no basis for emergency decree during an important election season. The country has enough tools to target and exterminate the architects of violence to a conclusive end. I have said it many times that freedom is not absolute in democracy. See how Hoover dealt with the KKK, Panteers and all violent groups that emerged in the USA. We can learn from that from history and reactivating our capacity to deal with anarchy.

    So Chakolwa was even contemplating a SOE when he is the one causing all the political violence and the recent xenophobic attacks. If he wants Zambia to go on fire he should then try that.


    My humble President, the rest kuwayawayafye

    President Lungu is a tolerant and humble man. Look at how some people have been insulting him with impunity! Yet he is the most powerful man in the land at the moment. Tha’s why the “prophets” of The Post even want him to interfere with ZRA’s operations.

    If need be Mr. President, use your thick stick as long as it will help to uphold law and order uniformly.
