Lungu with Mswati confer

Dora Siliya

Information Minister Dora Siliya who is also the government Chief Spokesperson has confirmed that President Lungu is indeed building a mansion in Swaziland.

Briefing the press on Monday in Lusaka, Siliya casually stated that there was nothing sinister about it since President Lungu was given the land as a gift.

Ms Siliya also disclosed that even State House Press Aide Amos Chanda was given land in Swaziland.

On the picture are architectural diagrams of a mansion that President Edgar Lungu is constructing in Swaziland.

President Lungu’s Plot number is Lot 225 Nkonyeni Golf Estate.

“Dora was trying to justify it by claiming that these plots in a luxurious estate in Swaziland were given as gifts to President Lungu and Amos Chanda.

These are multi million dollar properties that don’t come for free. If we as NDC did not expose these hidden properties abroad they would never have declared them and Zambians would never have known that they owned these properties,” the opposition NDC states in a statement.

  1. If this was a gift to Lungu as a president of zambia then this is a gift to the zambian people not Lungu as an individual.It belongs to Republic of Zambia. This is a clear indication that Lungu and his pf don’t mean well for the zambian people. Does Lungu intend to stay in zambia at the end of his tenure of office? If not, why? Is he scared of the dirty under the carpet? Wake up zambians.

  2. This gift is personal to the President just like Amos Chanda’s plot is his.Our own Chiefs here at home receive a lot of gifts from their subjects when they go to visit the Chief at the Palace.INCIDENTALLY KK has also some Property donated to him in both Zimbabwe and South Africa.No big deal.

  3. But is it an offence to receive an unsolicited gift? Should he have rejected it? How would Mswati have taken it if President Lungu had rejected it?

    The only problem is that to build the structures on the plot, money will have to leave Zambia and empower the Swazis – suppliers of building materials, architects, supervisors, bricklayers and other artisans may have to be Swazis.

    Well, it is true that there is a precedence, KK was given property in Zimbabwe and South Africa, no qualms.
