  5. This guy is encouraging anarchy in the country. Look at his head gear which is coamoufraged like the military uniform. This is the man behind Panga Family youths who put on military antire and beat up innocent people even killings happening in our neighbourhood. Please let us advise Edgar Lungu that he is a President and it is time for him to do right things for us Zambians.
