Zambia will have a Tonga President one day, President Lungu says

PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says Zambia will have a Tonga President one day but that it will certainly not be Hakainde Hichilema.

Speaking in Livingsone, Southern Province when he addressed Journalists on Saturday, President Lungu said it is not about tribe for one to become President but that it is about one’s character.

“We will one day have a Tonga President but certainly not the current aspirant because it is not about tribe but it is about who you are, character,” President Lungu said.

President Lungu said people should avoid being tribal with politics because different tribes inter marry without making it a big issue.

“Me I grew up with people from other tribes and I am a product of Zambia. So don’t worry about mushobe (tribe) because the tribe is Zambia. I have got friends who are married to Tongas, Bembas and Tongas married to each other. But when it comes to politics they start saying ‘no, power! Power.’ It’s not like that,” said President Lungu.

LUSAKA Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has warned residents that the restaurants which they have now turned into bars are death traps as they have the potential to swallow and wipe out everybody in the city.
And Lusambo says Covid-19 is real and is a dangerous and debilitating disease which can kill someone in hours time.
In a reflection message posted on his Facebook page, Lusambo said it is heartbreaking to see latest videos of Lusaka residents in crowded bars and nightclubs with no regard to social distancing and without wearing face masks .
“What is even more disturbing is that most of the patrons are adults with families whose conduct places those families at a higher risk of contracting Covid-19,” Lusambo said.
And Lusambo appealed to the residents to be responsible, stay home, practice social distance and mask up.

PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila says the continued winning of ward elections in the UPND perceived strongholds is a sign that the opposition, both individually and collectively cannot unseat the ruling party.

In a statement, Mwila said in the recent local government by-elections, PF has won ten (10) Wards and that eight (8) of these were in the heart of the opposition UPND.

These recent victories by the PF including those ones in UPND strongholds include some of the following: Nakanya Ward of Nalikwanda, Western Province; Chabale Ward in Serenje, Central Province; Lobufu Ward in North Western Province; Nyoka Ward in North Western Province; Silumbu Ward in Sesheke, Western Province; Imusho Ward in Sioma, Western Province; and Nangweshi Ward in Sioma, Western Province among others,” Mwila said.

He urged the party structures to cement the aforementioned gains in the UPND strongholds, while continuing their efforts to replicate similar results elsewhere.
