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
