Pres. Lungu’s Inauguration Halted

Pres. Lungu-PrayersSecretary to Cabinet Dr. Rowland Msiska has suspended plans to host an inauguration ceremony for President Edgar Lungu scheduled for Tuesday 23rd August 2016.

A check at the National Heroes Stadium found workers packing their tools stating that the urgency to the preparations was removed as the event would not take place on Tuesday.

“The Secretary to Cabinet, Dr. Roland Msiska advised that we suspend preparations due to constitutional implications.”

On Friday the United Party for National Development (UPND) filed in an urgent application contesting the validity of President Edgar Lungu’s win.
