Electoral Violence Worries Pres. Lungu

President Lungu said this at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport shortly before departure for Angola to attend the Southern African Development Community (SADC) double Troika Summit of Heads of State and Government in Luanda, which starts tomorrow, 24th April, 2018.

He says it is the duty of political party leaders in the country to ensure their followers do not engage in such negative vices.

President Lungu hopes that there will be no violence during the voting in Tuesday’s by-elections.

Meanwhile, President Lungu says he remains committed to dialogue despite indications from some political party leaders opposed to the proposed roadmap.

He says the dialogue process should go ahead because of it importance to the country.

President Lungu says he is pleased with the efforts coming from stakeholders who want to see the dialogue process succeed.

And President Lungu has disclosed that his Angolan counterpart João Manuel Gonçalves Lourenço will be coming to Zambia in May for bilateral talks.

  13. FGM

    Correct leadership and guidance is lacking in our political system. Politicians don’t seem to mind what happens to their opponents , cadres are armed with pangas and guns . The point they have missed; Zambia is a multi party state. All should be allowed to campaign freely. Shame on all those using violent tactics to remain in power or to get to power. Government should use its authority and resources to maintain Peace and tranquillity at at time.

  32. FGM

    Officers charged with the responsibility of maintaining peace and order are waiting for partisan inclined leaders to give directives. Professionalism has been sacrificed at the altar of cadreism . Only true Democrats are working professionally in this politically divided nation. Leaders should revisit our Democratic values if Zambia is to achieve its aspirations.
