Nshakulaumfya Ifyabupuba, President Lungu Tells Off Critics

President Edgar Lungu took on his critics as he stepped into the Copperbelt Province declaring that he would stay focussed on his job.

Speaking on arrival at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola, President Lungu said that he was alive to the fact that Zambians only appreciated their leaders once they were gone.

He said that some people were always on his neck to distract him from delivering to the Zambian people.

The Head of State said some people have focused in painting government black as a way of preparing for 2021 elections which he said will not work because government has continued to perform as per aspirations of the people.

“There are people whose agenda is to detract government from working for the enhancement of the welfare of the people, to stop government from working for development, I want to take this opportunity to say “nshakulaumfwa ifyabupuba” (I will not be listening to nonsense), President Lungu said.

President Lungu has further indicated that his action to fire some ministers has nothing to do with the criticism from his opponents which he said was full of malice.

He said certain decisions are made because there is need and not necessarily that someone has spoken about it.

“When things are wrong, we have a responsibility of owning up and telling our people things are not okay and not to shy away, they are blaming us when we are doing the right things, I am saying this because Zambians don’t appreciate. What Dr Kaunda did they don’t appreciate, they only appreciated after Dr Kaunda left, what Dr Chiluba did they don’t appreciate, they only appreciate after he left, the same goes for President Levy Mwanawasa they never appreciated him when he was in office but when he left they even mourned,” he said.

“They have said the same about President Rupiah Banda and they have said the same about Mr Micheal Chilufya Sata. I have learnt my lessons from these great sons of this country that when you are serving as President they won’t give you space, they will keep detracting you and if you are not strong you fall and when you fall they are happy but I assure you that I am not falling, ofcourse my name is ‘Chagwa’ naliwa kale ine nalima nokwima (I have fallen before and I am up already) and I am not falling again.”

 

President Lungu said is on the Copperbelt to launch the US $ 449 Million, Kafulafuta Water Supply System Project.

  27. Zambian

    Mr k talk about ur one vote do not include Zambian MU VAUPUBA your leaders best is not good enough for people to start singing praise. Critics make us better people in what ever we do there is still room to improve. Advise your masters to read JAMES 1vs 19

  28. leon

    One does not command for praisal when uk is demanding a refund

  29. Mako

    May the God show you the way sir.

  30. Tuli Bantu

    Comparing mwanawasa and him why, mwanawasa was a great man, he balanced the dollar to kwacha and if you can afford to balance the kwacha and dollar then you are a man, mwanawasa brought free education that even poor people were able to educate their children, in your leadership school is very expensive that poor people can’t afford to educate their children, in some villages people are suffering but you are busy enjoying their votes in plot one, you are busy building some hospitals but there is no medicine in the hospitals and people are dying, ati development ,and the bursary is only for daughters and son’s of the ministers not for villagers why?can you see what is happening in your government ka!!!!!.

  31. FGM

    The negative comments should be treated as mare checks and balances. They merely expose points that need to be worked on quickly. Nothing more!!

    • Umuntu

      Anano saana Iwe,. People think negative comments is for blaming, no, it’s to help the president work on areas that people are crying for. That’s what helped the great leader who balanced up dollar like no man’s business, he gained investor trusts, that’s what our president should aim to achieve at the moment. Imagine once Zambia was ranked B+ we miss those great days us lovers of our nation Zambia

  32. Phwishi

    What hav u done 2 de Zambian pipo so far?absolutily nothing apart frm enriching yourself with money meant 4 de Zambian poor.

  33. Mr Kennedy

    Close your ears Mr president you are my choice for 2021 , pipo will never appreciate they always appreciate ngakali mwitobo, go go lungu

  34. Chris Botha

    Mulenga Kelvin don’t you know that even Kambwili was fired due to his corrupt being. Anyhow us we are working for the people of Zambia wait and see how we shall sweep 2021. We are here to develop Zambia unlike you who think creatin was done in one day. Even the most high God he created everything but not in one day it took God six day to form , create and give life to the void surface of the earth and everything came to be then he rested on the seventh day. So stop yuppying

  35. Mtl

    It’s unfortunately that Zambian leadership is based on personal gain not for the benefit of our country Zambia. Honestly we have lost track

    • Umuntu

      100% mtl, it’s a shame now that people are joining politics to enrich themselves. Zambians let’s wakeup before it is too late!!! , We can create a president we want if we blame the wrongs together but if ba kandile surrounding him keeps on telling him at “all is well ba able bodied leader” then our president who 99.9% is traveling won’t know what is happening or our crys.

  36. Mr Kennedy MUKUPA

    People of Zambia less try to move not pamo napamo umwana ushenda atasha banina ukunaya ubwali, its not about Zambia African countries at all, give my President time apart from Lungu who else can we put there? Twakana ifikochikala mu town he Ngombe less just support him he will do wonders viva Lungu 2021 nidununa chabe

  37. Stephen Mwanza

    Garte men don’t west time in talking that’s the work for women just do your job you did not put yourself into power but the same Zambian people whom you say don’t appreciate are the ones who gave you that power you have to day and tomorrow you can loss it just do your job been a leader is not something sample just expect anything from Zambian people when their are not happy and they don’t appreciate when their are not appreciated by putting you into power Zambian people just want good work from you.

  46. Lad

  47. Razor

    That’s why pipo day the president is arrogant. Please learn to listen to your pipo and get some good advice so that you leave a better legacy. Like this pipo will be saying you were the worst president zambia ever had once you leave office because of not listening.

  48. menomeno

    Let him be courageous in stealing

  49. SAMUEL Muchindu

    It is very true that we have a tendency of not appreciating the ruling party but let’s be realistic here, what good have you done since the time you were elected huh. All we have seen is taxes Chinese people owning land which should be owned by zambians. So frank speaking sit down and make us appreciate you whether dead or alive.

  50. Silent

    Mxm these people are thieves mxm and the sad part is we the zambian people are paying the price. Oh Lord please save us from these corrupt leaders.

  51. jones Mulenga

    Why insults are you =in ur brains?

  52. KENYAPITHECUS

    Yah yah bad idea Mr president ofcourse u r right with your words but to compare thee to kk,Patrick chiluba its a big mistake all these weere guud fighters for corruption…corruption was there but not of today even snakes….chameleon bees flies are so scared to other things Mr president u r right…maybe try to check in records of Sata immediately wen he entered office wat he did to corrupt men’s ndeibukisha he fire ministers and other officials who so corrupt especially. So maybe try to follow his formulae maybe it will help us who know that corruption has not come today even intimes of Jesus corrupt men e.g like those of yours men’s there were there but men’s of today are more mweeeeee do u know dat soldiers who were guiding the tomb of Jesus after our Lord rise from dead they saw and they were the first witness they went and was corrupted by the king but u can’t imagine that there were corruption u see but today aweeeeeee CHABE CHABE u know we forget one things things we’re doing Will follow us to the Grave yard and they will be our tombstone maybe u don’t know but dats not my prayer to wish try to change for u to see HEAVEN

    Lungu is the worst president this country has ever had. He is corrupt, incompetent, without leadership skills, and arrogant. He should resign while there is still time.

    jumping splashing water doesn’t necessarily mean that one is swimming……there is a bigger difference between being at work and working……only those who knw hw to swim can tell who is swimming and who is not…..you ar making a lot of noise with your splashes by constructing roads at the expense of other sectors of the economy and fools thinks you’re swimming…..mwanawasa used to construct but wisely-meaning with calculated steps-and the world could see he was swimming-kwacha could favourably compete with dollar with single digit inflation rate.but you,even the deaf can hear the world crying of poverty for our voices are louder than ever before not even in sauna era did pool so loud…..you could hear our voices but you’ve choose not to listen……enjoy your jumping but don’t forget to jump carefully ‘coz one you will jump out the pool and it will be for gud.

    Don’t think those who are telling you that you are strong are building you!
