“Ignoring Lungu’s third bid is suicide”

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

It will be suicide for anyone to ignore the 3rd term bid mooted by president Edgar Chagwa Lungu.


It must be now clear to all doubting Thomases that the President means business by the endorsements he is already receiving from party structures across the country.


So let us all, lover of electoral democracy, pull our stockings and counter this monstrous effort aimed manipulating the constitution.


Am happy that president of NAREP, Mr. Elias Chipimo, and Mr. Isaac Mwanza have eloquently explained the illegibility of President Lungu.


My advice to PF is they should start looking for a heir to the party presidency in 2021 before they fall into the 2001 MMD Search for president which ended up dividing the party and the country.

  1. Unfortunately, the Lungu regime has pulled a fast one on the people of Zambia. The Constitution has been carefully crafted to give Lungu a Third Term!

    When PF went out to remove Cabinet fron outside Parliament; block Provincial Assemblies; and deleted Partial Proportional Representations in Parliament, no one raised even a finger, because they thought that they were not affected! But now that they realise that the maximum number of years for Presidential Office has been extended from ten to thirteen, they are crying foul, simply because they think they have been disadvantaged – hypocricies! There are no Provincial Assemblies, Cabinet from outside parliement, Proportional Representatives to protect them. Shameful hypocricies!

  2. Dancing in a fools paradise. Yes it can happen in our country because Zambians are docile. Bapena kuli bumushanina bunga .Zambians wake up men.

Look at the police force , they behave like they are the highly payed workers by chakolwa lungu . And yet they are the least payed. One uluse kuli ba buju. They are used like robots .

    • I totally agree with you. We are extremelly docile and PF know it very well. like they succeded in keeping Ministers to the polling day and ignoring court directive to pay back all stollen money, these clever idiots will allow their master to contest in 2021.
      If you look around there are vehicles with ECL 2021 registration plates already and no one has said anything about it. THIS IS STUPIDITY OF THE WORST KIND. THEY STOLE OUR MONEY THEN OUR VICTORY AND WE ARE ALL QUIET, SH*T MEN.

  5. I take it that both sides of the the debate are deriving their positions on the provision of the amended Constitution. Are the clauses so vague that they give room for various interpretations? My take is that whatever it is, serious pockets of conflict have manifested in many parts of Africa and elsewhere arising from misinterpretations of the provisions of the constitution. The earlier Minister Lubinda mobilizes a team to look at the lacunas in the amended Constitution the better. In doing so, please just focus on making clarity on the existing clauses, avoiding introduction of new issues rejected and/or not agreed during national consultations. That way, you will avoid the creation of a new national debate and crisis.

  6. Mcdonald Chipenshi(what can you give it) The Constitution is straight forward.
    Lungu qualifies, so who are you to say that he doesn’t?

    • Iwe zam@52, Who are you to say that Lungu qualifies to stand? Law experts have clearly articulated that Lungu does not qualify. He has already held office twice. 2021 attempt would be third term. Sure the entire P.F have failed to find a successor for 2021. Shame Public Fools (PF).
