Lungu urges PF to mobilise Voters

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |


President Edgar Lungu has directed the PF leadership to focus on mobilizing voters ahead of the august 11 elections.

ZNBC reports that President Lungu said the secret of winning elections does not lie in holding rallies and meetings but convincing voters to turn up in large numbers to vote.

President Lungu urged the people to turn out in numbers and vote for the PF on Election Day.

Mr Lungu was speaking at the Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International airport shortly before departure for Lusaka after a two day working visit on the Copperbelt.

The president further said the PF has shown maturity by upholding peace despite facing numerous provocations.

President Lungu said the maturity demonstrated by the PF deserves continuity.

The president also said he will soon come back to the Copperbelt because it is the heart of the political life in Zambia.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport to see off the president, First Lady Esther and his campaign team.

  1. I agree with ECL. The “secret of winning elections does not lie in holding rallies and meetings but convincing voters to turn up in large numbers to vote”.

    Indeed if Zambians are to vote out ECL and his PF thugs—and to avoid electoral theft and guarantee a future of this country—milions and upon millions of Zambians voting with nullify fraudulent PF votes and rigging schemes. It is that simple. ECL is such a disgrace to this country and a shame to the rule of law and order. What a fresh mornning it will be on Aug 12th when PF is a former ruling party, and ECL is no more president of Zambia!

  4. I urge all registered voters to turn out in their numbers to cast their vote for change. Let’s get rid of this incompetent government and preserve the lives of the people of Zambia. Staying away will only enable or facilitate rigging. This country is headed for economic disaster if we the people of Zambia allow PF/ECL back in power.

  10. Anybody who promises to invest in our farmers deserves your vote.

    Anybody who plans to fix the economy and proudly place agriculture front and centre deserves your vote.

    Anybody who plans to improve delivery of inputs and payment to our farmers deserves your vote.

    Anybody who plans to invest a lot in agriculture, instead of borrowing billions on international markets deserves your vote.

    Anybody who plans to lower food prices by increasing productivity in Zambia deserves your vote.
    Anybody who plans to draw on his experience in farming to set up training centres and invest in extension services, as well as increasing access to affordable credit, including cattle loans for our youth deserves your vote.

    Anybody who plans to help our farmers to access the market of more than 600 million people on our doorstep across the COMESA, EAC and SADC region deserves your vote.

    Anybody who plans to let government oversee investment in value-addition to transform raw groundnuts to peanut butter, cotton to cotton seed oil, soybeans to soy oil and soy cake, and maize to mealie meal and maize bran deserves your vote.

    Anybody who plans to make us be able to buy food and products that are Zambian from farm to fork deserves your vote.

    Vote for this person next week because farming not only puts food on the table and creates jobs, but if we invest in the sector and support our farmers then we can drive our whole economy forward.

    Farming is one of the greatest areas of opportunity for us as a nation. It provides many answers as to how we can move Zambia forward and can be a great source of national pride

    Agriculture is central to economic growth and development in Zambia.
    If we make Agriculture a dominant sector it will contribute to improvements in Zambia’s GDP, employs a lot of jobless Zambians in towns and contribute in the growth of other sectors of the economy.
    The agriculture sector can provides many people with vast employment opportunities in Zambia. Lots of people shun agriculture because our policies do not support farmers enough. If we can make farmers among the richest in Zambia, lots of people will be encouraged to divert in this direction and consequently resolve our national food security issues.

    The agriculture subsector component which includes many important crops and just Maize. The performance of agriculture sector in Zambia should not just be dependent upon weather condition but also upon investment in Agriculture technology especially in all provinces where we have timely availability of input (water) through our rivers. Driving between towns in Zambia we should only see developed forestry or crops.

    In spite of Zambia being a remote and land-locked location, Zambia can be relatively successful as an agricultural exporter.
    The tax collected through agricultural lands can be one of the main sources of income for the government which in turn can be used to protect the welfare of the Zambian people.

    Although what I am articulating sounds like an impossible dream, the solution lies in us voting wisely and coming up with sound policies and investing in agriculture.

    Investing is the process of making your money work for you, instead of simply sitting safely in the back, and it is increasingly a necessity of modern life.

    By investing our national treasuries wisely we can make a profit that we can then re-invest or put aside as a nest-egg. A good return on an investment can maximise earning potential.
