Pres. Lungu Stands Firm on 2021 Bid

President Edgar Lungu faced up to the debate about his candidature for the 2021 elections by saying that he wants to contest the 2021 elections.

Featuring on a ZNBC special interview program, the Head of State however clarified that he would not insist on contesting if the courts of law rule otherwise.

President Lungu recently uncharacteristically sent a veiled threat to the judiciary against being too adventurous with their rulings and replicate the Kenyan example of ruling against the state.

The debate about President Lungu being eligible for contesting the 2021 elections has dragged on despite the matter still pending before the courts of law.

President Lungu said that his opponents were scared of facing him as he was more popular than them.

He said that rather than demonize him for availing himself for the third time they should be happy to challenge him.

On foreign trips President Lungu said that they were beneficial to the country as they enhanced Zambia’s global reputation.

    Yebo Your Excellency Mr President! It is not right that you can surely ignore the that you made a declaration of your net worth the first time you became republican president which is documented as K2.5m in 2015 and K23.7m 18 months later in 2016. Before we talk about the corruption in your government SIR, are you able to talk about the tenfold increase in your net worth over a period of 18 months A-LUNGU??????

    From these comments readers sound tired of your leadership. Sir work on the noted weaknesses, poverty levels are on the increase, corruption allegations on the increase and need to reduce on foreign trips. PF may be digging its grave through those activities. The economy should directly benefit the citizens not what’s happening on the ground, there is need for a paradigm shift in the way some public affairs are being managed. Viva Zambia.

  36. Zambian Observer from Russia

    This is Lungu’s second term. He should know that out of morality. if he has forgotten, zambins still loathe the way KK made them foolish by standing with a frog at elections for more than 5 terms. Up to now no one has ever explained what that frog meant. weather the courts rule that he can stand, zambia was not born through the current constitutions. dictators all over africa temper with constitutions and other laws to legitimate their autocracy.

    No matter our personal feelings , wishes, or otherwise , the ultimate decider for our leader is God almighty .

  45. Metra

    Even though you plan that,think you will be there next term,if there shall be a person who shall vote for you then I may say he or she is a danderhead. A wise man cannot be blamed but only like you lungu are being blamed each every second,minute,hour,day,week,month and years. Lungu you are just polluting Zambians to remain in poverty instead of development. If there was a way to handle you I would have deal you but despite distance thank God you’re alive. Lungu you only focus on beer and you are commanding. Zambia was a Christian nation but now it’s a beer nation due to your foolishness.
    Everyone here in Zambia is complaining about you,why is you exist?of course you are but stop distracting we are as Zambians citizens. God bless you.

    Sometimes it is necessary to be ashamed of yourself, especially when your rule is about destroying other people. it means you are not worth the name a human being but an ANIMAL being. How do you literally bring the entire government machinery under your care, fearing to be challenged. The postponement by the Con-court is just in order, lest they are all killed by the powers that be.

  47. Rasco

    It is always absurdity to think that you are the only Zambian that can rule Zambia decently. There are a lot more Zambians who are capable of ruling Zambia. Zambia is never, Never short of capable men and women who can rule it. Just pull out and we have more willing Zambians with good hearts to rule us. We have seen your style of rule, it is quite harmful to Zambians , I dare say.
