UPND MPs Face Pres. Lungu

UPND Members of Parliament will have no choice but to sit through the House when President Edgar Lungu addresses parliament today.

Last time President Lungu addressed parliament the UPND MPs shunned the sitting on grounds that they did not recognize his Presidency.

Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini found the MPs guilty of breaching parliamentary procedure.

The UPND has been challenging the election of President Lungu alleging that the vote was stolen from them.

President Edgar Lungu will today address parliament in line with the amended constitution that compels the Head of State to date the House.

The address will be an opportunity for the President to set for the tone for his vision during his rule.

Under the amended constitution President Lungu will be expected to address parliament quarterly with MPs having an opportunity to ask him questions.

      Upnd mps are useless nd ignorant rags nd wetha they dont accept the president their just fooling themselves. upnd doesnt have the aspirations of zambians at heart. zambia is bigger than upnd. hh will never rule zambians but his wife and children.upnd mps and hh cant accept president edgar lungu they should go in exile because edgar lungu didnt impose himself as president of the republic of zambia but was given a mandate to preside over the affairs of this great country by zambians so its either you accept him or leave this country. go to malawi may be they will meet their aspirations and selfish desires. mind u president edgar lungu did nt steal votes from upnd as they claim but they were denied by zambians.

    …..set for the tone for his vision during his rule.!!

    Lets see. Which countries has he not visited yet?

    Mongolia?
    Uzbekistan?
    Fiji? (Nice beaches and plenty of RUM!)

    Or maybe he should pretend his tourism is part of the job?

    Chile? NO! they might show him why they started copper mining long after Zambia and are now producing 3 million tons a year – embarrassing!

    Or somewhere in Africa?

    Somalia! YES. DEFINITELY!

    I will let El Shaabab know he is coming!

    Shame for Zambian politics. People steal maize you keep quiet. They steal your votes you keep quiet. They steal your money through allowances you still support them. They go on holidays every day, the entire cabinet you still shut up your mouth. KK could have said ‘stupid idiots ‘.

    He thinks being president is about the ‘merry-go-round’ and wait for this constitutional periodic meet with parliament. Is he going to talk about the countries he has not yet visited? Pliz ba lungu, running a government is a serious business where you have a plan of activities and time frame for each of them, either immediate, medium or long term. Then implement them accordingly and evaluate. But am sorry, unfortunately someone calling himself leader is visionless, with no hope for the suffering majority zambians. ‘Bon voyage’ on your next ‘beneficial’ trip, sir.

    Comment But why do they attend when the Veep is therein parliament, even asking her questions when they know very well that the Veep was elected together with the person they have not recognised. Does it mean they recognise the Veep mama Inonge Mutukwa Wina as a national Veep?

    To those who are saying that,HH will never be president,if Zambia was created by you or any of your relatives then he will never be president because GOD is listening to the cries of His people who are suffering and very soon Hes gonna act.Keep watching.

    The country is being run by our party cadres because we do not have a president. The one calling himself “president” to us, does not exist because he does not inspire. That’s why we, as party members have taken advantage of his “humbleness”, which to us, is his being dull. Period! We are the ones “ruling”, while he is busy globe-trotting.

    Hallucinating hyna (hh), hakaivotela heka (hh), hakainda hakafina (hh). Upnd members ar a bogus. They dont think straight. They just have natural hate for lungu. Upnd hates other tribes and expect to be loved by the same pipo they injure.
