It’s a hoax, I never challenged HH to a debate – Tasila

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

FB_IMG_1469083577655President Edgar Lungu’s daughter, Tasila has refuted recent statements that have been circulating in the media of her allegedly challenging UPND presidential candidate Hakainde Hichilema to a live debate.

The earlier statements, which came after Hichilema challenged President Edgar Lungu to a live debate, quoted Tasila as challenging the UPND Leader to a national debate instead, as her father is “busy working”.

However, today after a series of statements, Tasila has allegedly issued another statement denying ever issuing any statement purporting to challenge the UPND leader to a national debate.

Meanwhile, Hichilema’s daughter Miyanda has also issued a statement condemning Tasila for her alleged statements which have since been disputed.

Below is Tasila’s full statement:

MY fellow Zambians and supporters in Chawama, it has come to my attention that statements have been issued and circulated on and off line directly attributed to me, ostensibly challenging the United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema to a debate.

I would like to set the record straight here and now by categorically refuting any authorship of the statement (s), either officially or unofficially. Please treat the statements as a hoax.

I nevertheless thank you very much, especially the people of Chawama, where I am contesting a seat as a Councillor, and also thank you for the unwavering support you have continued to give President Edgar Chagwa Lungu as he takes his development campaign across the country ahead of the 11th August polls.
God bless you all.

SIGNED: Tasila Lungu, aspiring Ward Counsellor, Chawam

  3. There is no accountability in PF, it is a party full of loose cannons, even suckling babies can claim to know better than their parents. This is a party with no respect neither of elders nor rule of law. A coursed party?

  4. She has realized that she has put her daddy in dilemma, if she had shown up for the debate all by herself, people would have questioned why her daddy has always been absent in her life, UPND would have accepted the challenge, HH brought his daughter to debate with tasila as long as she(tasila) would tag along her daddy so that we have a daddy /daughter debate, but realizing that her daddy’s absence at the debate would make people ask questions about his absence in her childhood life.

  6. Like father – like daughter, they all talk and think afterwards, what a kind of leaders in pf. We take your foolish challenge serious and it’s gonna lose your father significant votes, withdraw it or not – the damage caused is consequentially grave. You loose canons.

  9. I understand Tasila is a step daughter to the first lady. If she is, the first lady should expect problems in the invent of Lungu dying earlier (I am not wishing him dead). It is just the same when Mwanawasa died, Maureen’s step daughter, Miriam, sprang up from nowhere to demand equal share of the property. We had no issues with Kaunda’s two children or Chiluba’s 11 (eleven) children save for Castro. We had also no issues with Sata’s over tewnty (20) children excerpt one who was threatening to kill journalists. In the case of Rupiah Banda, it was Mr Banda himself who was pushing his own children to commit crimes because of his love for money. We have issues with Lungu’s daughter, Tasila, with her lack of respect for other people. This new statement of refuting her own story is an advise from one well mannered PF wiseman or woman, certainly not Lungu because he did not see anything wrong with what she said, with his low reasoning capacity.

  11. So many sceptics of any PF statement. If you cant believe a single one of their statements then just dont comment because there is clearly no point in commenting unless it is just to make noise
