I’VE DEFEATED UPND LEADER TWICE AND A THIRD LOSS IS COMING, SAYS PRESIDENT LUNGU

“In 2016, I beat him, in 2015, I beat him and in 2021, I will beat him,” President Edgar Lungu said in Kaoma on Wednesday in reference to UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.

President Lungu said he knows that Patriotic  Front will emerge victorious again in 2021 because Mr Hichilema has failed to build on the fortunes left by founding leader Anderson Mazoka, making UPND unpopular and constantly losing elections even in areas considered the party’s strongholds.

In recent by-elections, the UPND has lost several local government seats previously held by its members to the ruling PF, including a parliamentary seat in Mangango which was not long ago predominantly pro-opposition.

It is on this premise that President Lungu said on Wednesday at a rally ahead of today’s (October 10) council chairperson by-election in Kaoma that even UPND founder Anderson Mazoka who died must be wondering what has happened to a party which he worked hard to grow.

“Up there in heaven, Michael Chilufya Sata and Anderson Mazoka are watching us. And Mazoka is asking  Sata  that  how come your party is growing and mine is not, all I see are diminishing returns as its losing ground in its strongholds? And I know Anderson Mazoka is saying I made a mistake, I allowed a bully to lead my political party. And unfortunately, the man who is in charge of the opposition party  here which Mazoka left is saying the party is growing. But the party is diminishing. Because he was left with 50 cattle, he only has 20 now…He is cheating people that his party is growing. In 2016, I beat him. In 2015, I beat him. In 2021, I will beat him. I know that in 2021 he will lose again because I am with you and I listen to you and I know what the people of Zambia want,” President Lungu said.

“Zambians want development, Zambians  want good health, Zambians want good education and that is what we are doing. So how can someone say I have the wisdom, I’m educated, I’m rich and you don’t listen to people. We know that the next election is in 2021 but we know  before that time, we can surely do something tangible to change the face of Kaoma.”

He said further said there is no need for violence because “the people that are dying are you”.

“My children are home, HH’s children are home. Why should we allow you to fight? It’s nonsense! Our Members of Parliament who are in PF, in MMD, in UPND are in Parliament right now; they are even sharing a cup of tea. So I am advising parents here to tell the children that there is no need to shed blood for HH or Edgar Lungu. If they injure you, you suffer alone. If you are lucky, you die alone. If the police arrest you, you will end up in jail alone. So I am asking you for those who belong to my party PF that please, just be as peaceful like I am,” said President Lungu. “If you believe in me  and believe in PF, you will hear my command. My command is that let us be peaceful after voting tomorrow.”

      Typical dictator style
      One of Africa’s remaining dictators Yoweri Museveni and his new found friend Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa partied on Wednesday at Uganda’s Independence celebrations while main opposition leader Bobi Wine was placed on house arrest.
      In a Twitter thread on Tuesday,Wine also a popular musician in the country, said Museveni wanted to frustrate a music concert organised by his party.
      “Since 11:00pm, police and military surrounded my home and my private property, One Love Beach Busabala, in yet another move to place me under house arrest and block our Independence Day music concert. 156th concert so far! For singing truth to power, I can’t perform in my own country,” said Wine who posted pictures of the police camped outside his home.
      Wine, an ally of Zimbabwe opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa, said Museveni was afraid of critical voices.

    How one wins matters most. Failure to hear the 2016 presidntl petition still lingers in the mind of many Zambians as to whether truly you defeated HH. Many feel pf stole, no wonder the economy is not doing well. ‘Cursed is the hand that steals’

      Edgar is not cursed iwe wine mune you are cursed. The 2016 election our friends won. My fellow members were forcing me to petition the election result . more especially this GBM. I won’t give him his money we used during campaign. 2021 I see it will be tough for me because Edgar has turned the face of Zambia . Zambia was not like this . if I look what he has built schools universities , hospitals , and house. Nangu kutalika bane tuletasha. Mwsbombemi ba LuNGU

    A’m surprised so much to hear the president say,Sata and Mazoka are in heaven,all the people who have died before us are waiting the significant day of resurrection.The problem of politicians they do pretend to worship GOD in denominations they enter almost every sabbaths and sundays having defferent beliefs,and they fail to catch up what the bible clearly says.To them is their privilege for campaigning.1Thessalonians 4:15-17& 1Corinthians15:51-52,for ressurection.

    Lungu CANNOT BRAG ABOUT WINNING THE 2016 ELECTION TO BE HONEST. HE LOST COMPLETELY AND IS IN OFFICE ILLEGALLY. SO HE MUST BE READY TO ANSWER THAT CHARGE AFTER 2021 ELECTIONS.

    The wind of change is not seen anyway in Zambia apart from the minds of Lazy upnd members who think that HH will bring them a bag of mealie meal and the rains when he he wins. Dream on, friends dream on. You will loose again, Remember that it seems the weather pattern interms of the rains looks promising next year this mealie meal prices will come down giving you more head aches on issues to campaign on. Dream on HH, Dream on HH.

    Lungu eve alemesa, even in the government portfolio almost every one doesn’t won’t him, only just that they can’t tell him that they are tired of him, my request to the ECZ is, let 2021 election be free and fair not of rigging, that will satisfy Zambians, because what we see is war if not, us Zambians are suffering in the hands of pharaoh, we are even remembering our mistake of voting RB out, it was a great mistake, so don’t think this dununa reverse is making Us happy.

    I thank God for the great things that I have done. I actually, know that it’s rare to find people recognizing what the scripture articulates.. For we all know that these are last days as the Bible puts it. So the issue of ECONOMY, CLIMATE AND WHATEVER; these are just basis of what is written.

    Therefore, open the eyes of your heart and soul.. Peculiar people have no time to explore and argue on politics. Regardless of your ethnic group arise coz even the Israelites failed to thank God due to their daily murmuring. What happened? God punised them 40 years in the wilderness, for He hates murmurs. The more you murmur, the more you shall struggle in Zambia. Let’s keep focused on the TRUTH
