It’s A Lie, Bill 10 Won’t Make Me Stay In Forever, Says President Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has told Southern Province chiefs that it is a lie that the Constitution Amendment Bill No.10 of 2019 will perpetuate his stay in power.

Speaking when he met traditional leaders from Southern Province in Livingstone on Friday, President Lungu said some people in the country are taking advantage of citizens’ ignorance by spreading lies about what is contained in Bill 10, saying it is a lie that he wants to stay in power forever.

The Head of State also assured the Chiefs that his government will not relent in developing all parts of Zambia, including areas where he got little or no votes at all in the last election.

Speaking on behalf of other chiefs, Chieftainess Sekute of Livingstone the traditional leadership in Southern Province is happy with President Lungu and the infrastructure development agenda being implemented across the country, which the region is a beneficiary.

The traditional leader further said Southern Province chiefs were in support of Bill 10 and those opposed to it have not read the contents of the Bill.

    If that is what it is,why has it given you a great pressure? If it is not your intention, then,forget about it. Concentrate on other things. Bill 10 is a reject. Three quarters of its contents, are not for the public interest. That is the reason why it failed.

    if same people are taking advantage of people’s ignorance,who’s job is it to make people understand?why rushing it to parliament before explaining it to the citizens so they understand

  3. CONCERNED CITIZEN AMPLIFIED

    We had a lot a of problems after the 2016 elections because of the toxic constitution we have. Somebody wants to refine it and the upnd are refusing. So the most important thing the president can do is to make sure we have the right constitution in place by making sure that bill 10 is actualised.

  5. Concern Zambian

    Yes it is a lie. In 2016 we were suppose to have the bill of Rights. But some body who is dull, misleading,no vision some body who has the fear of unknown. I am talking about some one who told us to total lockdown the nation, some body who informed us Lumumba Rd costed $1bn instead of $70m, some body who saw wheelbarrows for co-operatives and informed us that foreigners have bought Gold mines. Total Lockdown Political Party.Some body’s head must be flushed out. 5 loses in elections is not a joke the is confused. This Bill 10 youths, women, disabled and Chiefs will make you fix up our nation. Bally wama Lockdown will make you be lockdown he will not fix

      Concern Zambia and friends read claise 32,36 and 59 and tell me what is progressive about cabinent trying reinstate deputy ministers and cabinet approving international treaties and loans without parluament ratification. Its trying to removevthe clause of independent MPx needing 2 months prior to resigning from a party to be declared independent so some parties can have some “independent” canidates after telling them to resign so they can be fielded independently. No matter hos much you try to sell us this bill 10 it is for a few greedy individuals who are not even so clever or thoughtful. Lets us see where you get 2/3 from.

  6. Go Away Lungu

    We cannot continue parading ourselves as a country like the ruling party or government is an imposition by foreign interests.We must learn to be patriotic.We always opposing everything the government does.We spent hours no end with spite.We are aware that not everything our leaders look appealing to all of us and we belong to different groupings.Just the level ignorance is what is disturbing on national issues.People who have gone to school,cannot read and articulate issues properly and in the process mislead other folks who believe in these uneducated academicians.Let bill 10 face parliament and all those wonderful views expressed.This is just a bill!Our MPs should always avoid walking out of parliament and worst their brilliant ideas on social media. These MPs should be held accountable by their view constituents.They are not helping the nation or proving their ability to debate matter constructively in parliament.
