Accept I’m Your President, Urges Pres. Lungu

President Edgar Lungu took a dig at his critics on his occasion to host the Under-20 national team saying some of them had not recovered from the acrimony of campaigns.

A light spirited Lungu said some people have refused to accept he was President despite having won the elections.

“You have brought joy at a time that the country is still undergoing some division. I am saying this because some people have not recovered from the acrimony of elections,” he said.

“Some people are not used to losing elections; I have lost before I know how it feels. Kulabapepelakofye (just pray for them).”

President Lungu said he could smile because he could not lose sleep over challenges to his leadership.

“I should smile at your achievement because I am the President. Very few people say I am not the President,” he said in apparent reference to the opposition United Party for National Development that has been repeatedly refusing to acknowledge his victory in elections.

The Head of State also had a note to parliamentarians who were present at the event by alluding to their appetite for allowances.

“I will not take long because there are Members of Parliament. I know you want to go and get your allowances,” he said.

President Lungu also advised the Under-20 that they should never rush into signing hurried contracts.

“Do not rush into signing contracts that have been dangled on you but seek advice from coaches, managers, parents and guardians,” he said.

    Clearly, Edgar Lungu is delusional. How can he expect people to accept that he is the legitimately elected president of Zambia when the challenge to his election was not resolved on the merits by the inept Constitutional Court – a creature of his government’s equally inept constitutional making process? The country will continue to be divided as long as the courts do not pronounce on the merits of the presidential election petition. And, his supporters should be reminded that this is a person who does not respect the Constitution that he signed into law amidst much fanfare (Examples are his misguided insistence that his ministers stay in office after the dissolution of Parliament and his failure to step down from office pending the determination of the challenge to his questionable election).

      NO NO. AS A FATHER OF THE NATION ECL IS WORRIED AND CONCERNED THAT ONE OF HIS SUBJECTS CALLED HH IS SUFFERING FROM DELUSIONAL CONFUSION ABOUT HIS LOSS. SO ECL IS FEATHERY IN HIS APPROACH, ALWAYS CONCERNED ABOUT OTHERS.

    • Mfumukazi

      So if 100% judiciary rule in favor of HH then then the Judiciary would be deemed independent.? What a skewed way of thinking!

    Will any acceptance bring any Development in my life???? Or perhaps the price of commodities & end corruption in the country????

  13. Mapanza H Nkwilimba

    You steal an election and you expect law abiding citizens to accept you as their president? Let the petition be heard.

  14. Pedro

    Very uninspiring speech to the kids. Lungu is very insecure for real, why talk politics to these young fellows? He’s too immature to be a dictator.
    Why then talk about allowances? Is it all he and the parliamentarians think about all day?
    Very shameful, could have apologized about police teargas and kaizer Zulu.

    ‘ECL’, Elections Credibility Loser. How do you still remind the pipo how you did not win elections? Pliz that was a sports event and not your time to talk about your foolishness. No wonder -Kambwiri calls you ‘brainless’. Pliz spare those young footbalers from your primitive politics.

  18. Gevy Armyworm Phiri

    It seems HH & his dreaming disciples hav run out of idea as they can not realise the noise they are still feasting on is making us who ‘re undecided 2021 voters think he’s just in politics 4 trouble. If he can’t even use his brains & count how many MPs he has. I think this hh nids 2b shown a repeat in 2021 4 his blind disciples 2 watch his loss clearly this time arround. He’s making us not vote on merit but just 2 teach him a lesson so as 2 humble him. HH come 2 yo senses & stop irritating us pliz

  21. Pmc

    ECL should be worried about why some people have continued to live in denial of the fact that they lost and why they think we dont know who we voted for.
