  4. Sorry he is NOT resigning. At least he is holding a press conference. For all those that have been crying for a press conference, he it comes.

    Viva Lungu! Show them you are better than they thought.

  5. We will wait and hear what he wants to tell us Zambians over the failures of PF to deliever. The violence created by his party. We want to know whether he is for democracy or panga or guns. Whatever he wants to talk he must know that we will support good ideas for developing this country. We are going to support Hakainde Hichilema and vote for him and UPND in 2016 general elections as they seem to mean well for the entire country. No more blaming God but solutions are what our people in Zambia want. A president should talk real issues NOT some paper (the Post) or opposition (HH, EN and others) but talk of solutions and no more promises. No more tribal sentiments and stone age thinking of blocking others to campaign in places you cheat yourself that are your strongholds. Those were for Sata Not Lungu. Real PF died with that man who manufactured lies. Yours is guns but are sure we will support a party full of enemies of the people they want to rule?

  6. Sounds like a great event when it is supposed to be a regular briefing of the nation in a democracy. Obama has regular briefings and public interactions with the public. This is good as it automatically kills the power of kachepas.

    Leadership is a serious matter

    • True, here in Zambia a presidential briefing is a big deal now.

  10. Day dteamers! Those who think UPND will win 2016 r dreaming for sure u will be shocked. I loved Mazoka and will love him for ever he was a real man M.H.S.R.I.P he was my president and true founder members of UPND really miss him

  11. I dont expect anything new apart from some crap like he’s in control….i dont expect any form of hope or workable solutions.

  12. Its up 2 zambians weather thy need 6th or 7th president.But seventh is 4 God

    November 25, 2015 at 8:36 pm

  13. @Robert, are u God to make such pronouncements ? The fact is u created nothing and you have got no part to what God Almighty created and determines. If it’ s God’ s desire that at some point, UPND will rule Zambia, who is you to say ”No” with your big, ugly, stinking mouth ? On this planet earth mwana, which you did not create, you have got no say to things which are put in place (determined) by God Almighty because you are just a fly. So do not expose your folly by making pronouncements which are beyond human orchestration because in the process, you just make a f.o.o.l of yourself.

  14. Drunken master to hold press conference at 12:00 hrs today. Whatever he is to say it’s unfuturistic and divisive. He sometimes says something sensible and does it opposite in implementation, what’s wrong with Lungu people? He talks of peace and unity in the nation, blackmailing people with fasting and prayer, on the other hand he’s busy dividing the nation. Lungu is a untrustworthy, just wait see.
