President Lungu

President Edgar Lungu says he will not be distracted by people making allegations of corruption each time government unveils a major project.


President Lungu said this in Kafue Gorge today when he officiated at the diversion ceremony to mark the construction of the US$ 2 billion Kafue Gorge Lower hydro power plant dam.


He said it was the interest of his critics to cause fear in his government so that it fails to implement developmental projects around the country.


The Head of State stressed that government remains resolved in ensuring that it delivers according to the promises it made to the Zambian people during the 2016 general elections.


President Lungu wondered why for 14 years the Kafue Gorge Lower hydro power plant dam was not being implemented despite feasibility studies being done.

The Head of State said he was ready to lose popularity for making bold decisions aimed at spurring national developmental.


And speaking earlier at the same function Southern Province minister Edify Hamukale praised President Lungu for making a bold decision to kick start the hydro project.

  2. Your Ecellency President Edgar Chagwa LUngu! There are verbal proofs, from C.K, on zambian tv channel, that you have amassed massive wealth ever since you came to power with proof that you declared a very big sum of money after one year, and that you are building In a number of towns at once, using AVIC international. And all those surrounding you are in filthy rich, like Kaiser,….etc. Kindly tell the people of Zambia something about these allegations, because zambian feel betrayed and are losing faith in you.

  3. Silence is confirmation. If one is accused of murder surely if u didn’t do it u must plead innocent in Court. Lungu has been accused of amassing massive wealth from corrupt deals during a short period in office. Lungu has failed to act on maizegate, Roadgate,Mukulagate and now Firegate. He is an alleged beneficiary from these Corrupt deals.Lungu has to clear his Name in all these corrupt deals. To make matters worse Lungu has a well known Criminal Record when he stole a client’s money as a Practicing Lawyer. Its on record that Lungu was de-registered as a Practicing Lawyer by LAZ for the theft. Once a thief always a Thief. Lungu started his thieving career by stealing money and then in 2015 & 2016 stole votes.Now illegally in Power he is stealing money at every opportunity. He is now a millionaire within 3 years in power.When Lungu leaves office he will go to Jail for committing numerous crimes and self enrichment.

    • I pray that you live up to 2021 to see Lungu and team go to jail. As for bo Inonge, I think she is truly just as guilty. Otherwise she should have resigned the same way Baldwin and Akashambatwa did. Kiyona taba.

  5. Surely any sensible person can see that this man and his cronies are real time robbers. Now that they are under attack by one of their own who has equally stollen, they have taken to physical violence.
    The idiots will soon or later have to testify against one another. We told people not to trust the wolves and now they are hearing it from the horse’s or is it the thief’s own mouth.
    HH and the UPND have been insulted called all sorts of names for telling the same story. Now you can judge for yourself who the true patriot is. Lungu, mu masholi, makulakulenge tota tota kono lutamibona.

  6. The Chinese govt’s Policy towards Corruption is Zero Tolerance. What is visionless Lungu’s Policy towards Corruption? It appears it is 100% Tolerance hence Lungu and his criminal Advisers are now filthy rich.Lungu has rapidly transformed himself from a poor Chawama Resident to a multimillionaire President. Lungu is a beneficiary of all corrupt deals committed in his govt.These corruption deals include Maizegate,Roadgate, Firegate etc scandals. As CK revealed Lungu is Mr Corruption Number One in Zambia. Lungu is the most violent,thuggish and Corrupt President since Independence in 1964. With Lungu at the helm Zambia is doomed.
