Lungu’s government mute on Gambia

Filed under: Latest News,Politics |

President Lungu

The Zambian government has remained mute on the political happenings in Gambia where the incumbent had refused to handover power until military intervention from ECOWAS.


Zambia’s neighbours – Botswana and Tanzania came out strong on the issue saying they were not going to recognise Gambia’s Dictator President Yahya Jammeh.


The Botswana government urged President Jammeh to respect the will of the people of Gambia while Tanzania strongly condemned the move to cling on to power against the wish of the people.


But Ugandan dictator President Yoweri Museveni supported his fellow dictator condemning military intervention by ECOWAS.


In Lusaka, the government has remained mute over the matter.

  2. Zuma of South Africa,Khama of Botswana and Magufuli of Tanzania have already recognized President Adama Barrow of Gambia. Dictator Mu7 denounced Ecowas for invading Gambia and interfering with the internal affairs of Gambia. Mu7 wanted Jammeh to hold on to power even after losing the Election. Jammeh petitioned the Election Results as a tactic to cling to power and prolong his 22 years Rule. Jammeh has been removed from power in Gambia and banished to Equatorial Guinea where a fellow Dictator,Obiang will host him. Lungu,Mugabe,Mu7,Dos Santos and other dictators in Africa and are in quandary and do not want to recognise the Regime change that has taken place in Gambia. With a Petition still hanging around his neck illegitimate Lungu doesnt know what to do. He is scared stiff that a Resurgent SADC might compel him to allow the Petition to be heard,determined and disposed off. We salute Ecowas for upholding the Will of the People in Gambia. We hope that Ecowas will urge SADC to do the same in Zambia and DRC. While in Gambia a Petition does not suspend the inauguration of the President Elect and Zambia it does.Four months after the Election in Zambia the Petition has not been heard. Lungu has disregard the Zambian Constitution and is illegally clinging on to power. Lungu has been blocking the Petition Hearing in Court using numerous tactics in his book. If SADC believes in Constitutional Democracy it must call Lungu to order and force the Petition Hearing. Zambians want to know who truly won the 2016 Elections and who is their Legitimate President. The Petition has to be heard without fail.

    • Ba Mwape imwe bushe whose results were announced by Gambian Electral Commission?? Was it for Jammeh or the fully elected one?? You must respect ECZ in anyway it executes its duties. Ecowas came in because Jammeh lost as announced by Electral Commission which is the ONLY body entrusted to do that. But Jammeh refused later without bases. Same with upnd. It never won and SADC cannot come in because they trust and witnessed ECZ’sfull duties. You are backwards. Selako tubombe mwaice.

  3. Mr Ian Khama of Botswana went to Zambia to witness Lungu’s illegal inauguration but he Never issued any Statement recognising Lungu. To seek recognition paid jj stealing the Election Lungu sought a State Visit to RSA but Mr Jacob Zuma did not issue a Statement recognising Lungu. Next Lungu sought a State Visit to Tanzania but Mr John Magufuli did not issue a Statement recognising Lungu. The Morrocan King cancelled a visit to Zambia and EGYPT also mysteriously cancelled Lungu’s State visit.Zuma,Khama and Magufuli have been the first African Presidents to recognise President Adama Barrow. It will be a tall order for Lungu to gain recognition without Hearing,determining and disposing off the Petition. Now Pressure will mount for Lungu to allow the Hearing of the Petition without further delays.Lungu is between a rock and a hard place.

  4. Lungu is in a serious dilemma. If he recognises President Adama Barrow of Gambia he will have accepted Constitutionalism.The Gambian Constitution provides that a Presidential Petition is filed within 10 days after declaration of the Election Results the President Elect should be sworn in within one month. The Petition in the Gambian case doesn’t suspend the inauguration of the President Elect. In the Zambian case a properly filed Petition with Concourt SUSPENDS the President Elect and he cannot be sworn in until the Court hears the Petition,determines it and declare the President Elect the Winner of the Election. Additionally the President Elect, if an Encumbent President, should automatically resign and allow the Speaker of Parliament to Act as President of Zambia while the Petition is being heard and disposed off.Illegitimate Lungu disregarded all these legal requirements and proceeded to swear himself back in power illegally. As matters stand Zambia has No Legitimate President today.It is therefore imperative that the Petition be heard and disposed off so that Zambians can know who won the 2016 Presidential Election and the Winner of that Election should be inaugurated as the Legitimate President of Zambia. The AU and SADC should facilitate the Petition Hearing without further delays.Illegitimate Lungu has to step aside and an Independent Electoral Tribunal appointed to adjudicate the Petition.

  5. @Chando. You are correct in your observations except in the Zambian case a Petition duly lodged with Concourt does not suspend the President Elect. A Petition in this case SUSPENDS the ECZ declaration of a Winner.The President Elect if an Encumbent President, is legally forced to step down infavour of the Speaker of Parliament while the Petition is being heard and disposed off. The Court after carefully hearing the Petition will Rule and declare the Winner. Once the Court declares a Winner that Winner is then sworn in as the Legitimate President of Zambia. It follows therefore that Until the Petition is heard and disposed off Zambia has no Legitimate President. Lungu is currently masquerading as President but he is illegal and illegitimate.Period.

  8. He has to remain mute for long time, because he also did not win, hence he is wandering to say. Male mu, has told mugabe to rest, as he cannot think on his own. Grace is running the country. Him is like a zoombe in the seat.
