Zambia Better Than We Found It – Lungu

President Edgar has said Zambia is today better than the PF found it, saying the ruling party had promised Zambians a better country.

And President Lungu has advised Zambians to spend their time productively rather than wasting it spewing out vitriol on social media.

Delivering his State of the Nation address in Parliament this morning, President Lungu said the PF government is determined to turn around the country’s economy for the benefit of all Zambians.

The Head of State said he will turn around the economy through dedication, resilience and innovation of the government, in partnership with the citizens, as the economy can only be built through hard work and prudent use of the country’s resources.

“We must get up each day to do something productive for a better tomorrow. Something to improve our ourselves, our families, and our communities. Let us spend our time productively rather than wasting precious time spewing out vitriol on social media.
Let me thank our people for the continued faith and belief in my administration. Your continued support is what has given us the impetus to soldier on, despite the many challenges we have faced. Let us continue to put our country first in all we do. There is only one Zambia, the Zambia that belongs to all of us, the Zambia we should be proud of. And the Zambia we want. Let me also thank our cooperating partners who have continued to believe in us, and our development agenda. On behalf of the nation, I want to assure our cooperating partners that they have our gratitude,” President Lungu said.

    Your Excellency, whilst there seems to be a milestone in the developments you have done since you took over power. I have been made poorer during your tenure of office, and I demand my hard word to be compensated. I spent little time abroad working so hard, educating myself from money I earned from casual work . After attaining good quality education, I became a Diplomat after competing successfully with several candidates from various parts of the world, and I worked diligently. Dissapointingly, satanists became envious of my hard work and skills and mobbed memin alarming numbers spewing their vernom at me in several hatred conspiracies, killing my daughter and refusing to account for it, stealing my Zambia Police benefits and personal belongings. Despite such embarrassing acts. I stood out of the crowd with unshaken integrity coming back home with shipments of household goods from the the two homes, I lived in at my duty station and where my I was keeping my children. However, the vernom and hatred conspiracy spread to the legal and justice mechanisms, through which I was pillaged inhumanely. Several years on, the pillagers are still shopping for loopholes to cover up their shame. But it’s too late. Zambia must now learn to do away with impunity. You can’t allow them to live complacently and fold your arms and look on, whilst they manipulate, steal and kill others in abuse of state machinery??

    International justice mechanisms are now working to address their inhuman acts. I didn’t have to rush back and report your government to international justice mechanism, if those implicated had not abused their responsibilities to envy and admire, what a woman has achieved and then embarrass you by stealing in abuse. ??
    I respectfully ask you, continuously and in the same manner you have worked tirelessly to improve Zambia’s economy, as you say??? To ask those implicated to apologise and make good on restitution towards their spoils. Of course I have requested that you hand them over for criminal prosecutions by independent authorises, and thatbis the best way, I can teach my fellow Zambians, to not engange in hatred conspiracies as a way of progressing their livelihoods. They have no idea how hard I worked and stayed disciplined and alive in foreign countries. They have not even thanked me for the hard work I did for mother Zambia?? You are very much aware that I don’t envy or find pride in illegally acquired wealth and I don’t even get intimidated at seeing them feeding their children and wives from such illegal gains. Women empowerment needs your attention, and they ought to learn nit to pull down a self empowered woman, as they do not even have skills of empowering women. Then I am also asking you to address sexual exploitation and abuse. Women have been sexually used and exploited and conduits of bringing me down.. And how do you feel to go and have such issues addressed before the global public?? They should emulate me and work hard and stay above sexual abuse. Give me back everything that I worked hard for and achieved, and give me back everything that your people looted and stole., and hand over the satanist bandits to an international justice mechanism.

    The state is illegally withholding my money and I was robbed and extorted in abuse of the judicial system, blantantly assaulting my capital market investiments and violating my right to human development. Where do you expect me to find money to be productive again, when. My right to earn a living and to life has been inflicted.

    Please let me live. There is dire need for education and publication of resourceful use I find th financial and legal systems in Zambia. There is dire need for formulation of policies which will improve corporate responsibility.

    The waste and irresponsible by a lot of people in responsble positions is unacceptable. Let them tell you what they thought when they were stealing things they have no capacity to generate. They cannot cover up, and now matter how they try to justify their illegal conduct, they commit further crimes. Please kindly remind them that accountability is not optional.

    I need you to give me back my money and compensate me for the stolen items, spoils and loss of bussiness and career opportunities.

    They must be held accountable for killing my daughter. Being jealousy of my achievements and my daughter’s good looks, is not a shield to their wickedness, and neither is it a procedure of achieving. I am not competing with anyone, and they ain’t my class and type for them to conspire to kill my my child whilst I was working for an international organization???

    I didn’t have to report Zambia to all global mother bodies for such irresponsible inhuman acts.

    It’s incredibly sad to have a President with no vision. How do you measure improvement, if you don’t have any goals? To me and many others in my position, Zambia has deteriorated in the most crucial areas of any nation’s development. These include complete destruction of trust between the governed and those who govern, essentially because of deeply entrenched corruption, wholesale stealing, destruction of governance systems, national and local, breakdown of rule of law, cadres taking control of the country at al levels; destruction of the Police; Judiciary, Parliament and civil service; abuse of power; misuse of resources and abuse of power; poor guardianship of national assets, especially natural resources, and so on. I do appreciate that most of our countrymen have accepted the culture of corruption and facilitated the demolition of our country, especially Chiefs, but a President is there to protect our country, not to be at the head of the mobs. For me, this just goes to show the need for radical change. Not only do we need a new vision and more informed leadership, with a better moral campus, we need a complete removal and replacement of the constitution, so that this sort of presidency becomes a never again event.

      I think what the President is comparing the predecessor govt (MMD) and not the UNIP as some people think.Any way those comparisons may be true to certain percentage though no president from any political party can truely solve all the issues effecting the lively hood across the country To day one would do take his part of anxiety and tomorrow another one will also forecast on different implementations according to their manifesto and governance goes on and on.

    This a man who is hallucinating. Tell us what Zambia’s debt was when you took over and what it is today. Tell us how much reserves Zambia had and what it is today.? Tell us what the exchange rate was and what it is now… How many people were in employment and how many still have jobs today. What the price of meanie meal was and what it is today! Only you have become rich while to majority of Zambians have become poorer. Your day in court will come even if it takes a 1000 years… Remember Baddie of Sudan!
