State House Clarifies Video Skewed To Suggest Pres. Lungu Is A Dictator

State House has moved to clarify an online video skewed to paint President Edgar Lungu as a dictator following remarks made light-heartedly during fundraising walk for the aged.

Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relation Amos Chanda said the remarks were made in jest.

He said the remarks were meant to discredit President Lungu by his detractors.

The clip was conveniently cut out to eliminate the context it was filmed when President Lungu apologized to motorists for having budged in the bus soliciting for donations for the aged at Cheshire Homes.

“He made a comment in jest to emphasize the apology that he was making for inconveniencing people on the road,” he said.

Chanda said there was nothing wrong President Edgar Lungu did by saying Zambians tolerated President Kaunda for 27 years.

    Please put things in order their is nothing wrong or right it just someone ‘s minds which detamines which way go. Their is such financial ventures for the President why can’t you just divert a small amount rather than being involved in critics i’m sorry for saying this but its true that their isn’t wrong with but if a wrong advise is given people will critizes but when the advise is nice even the out come is nice few roads or few things will let people complain

    I see no reason to talk about a gallant freedom fighter. How many times was Kenneth jailed before independence? Mwikula umutwe ba mwisho. No one stays there forever. Ask Robert M if you want!

    The only think one can do is to apologise even when he did do something wrong that exactly shows how much respect and love he has for this nation, We love you Mr President and we will continue praying for you.may the all night Lord bless you sir

Please sir just concentrate on leading us the way you will read is the way Almighty God will give you gifts.

    The first republican President Dr kk to me, he has been the better among the presidents of Zambia today.I grew in he’s days…When i compare & contrast…Jobs for all the youths was well planned & programmed…Zambia had the power of all the mines,parastatals,farm blocks,airways….etc despite some ups & downs as compared to some Presidents of Zambia today.
