ABA kuchilye chamilandu, ba ConCourt balilanda ati Lungu achitafye one term, one term ilya ine ukufuma mu 2016 ukufika nalelo ni one term. ilya yashile ba Sata one year six months napo ngani eight months teyandi iyo yaba Sata, ifyo balandile ku court, says President Edgar Lungu.
Speaking when he addressed his supporters in Central province, President Lungu emphasised that the Constitutional Court ruled that he only served one term from 2016 to date.
He said this is because the remaining months he served as President, were not his term but for late President Micheal Sata.
The Head of State also condemned those who were claiming that Bill 10 was bad.
“Bill 10 tamuli mulandu, balenda ati ni Lungu, Lungu alefwaya ukubwekelapo imiku itatu, fyabufi fyonse ifyo, ala umulandu ngawaku wila kusuminafye, pali Bill 10 pena bali lufyanya abanesu, ngamukabelela chili kuli imwe”, he said.
President Edgar Lungu urged Zambians to vote for a Government which will work with the people.

ZAMBIA’S High Commissioner to South Africa Major General Jackson Miti says no Zambian trucks were torched in the recent spike of violent protests against foreign drivers in that country
This is according to a press statement issued by Mrs Naomi Nyawali, First Secretary Press and Public Relations at the Zambia High Commission in South Africa.
General Miti said speculations circulating on various media platforms that four trucks belonging to Zambian drivers were torched are not true.

General Miti said the Mission in Pretoria was making frantic efforts in ensuring the safety of Zambian drivers together with their properties
He re-echoed his advice to Zambian drivers traveling to and from South Africa to be vigilant on the roads for their safety.
General Miti has further advised the Zambian media and the public to get accurate updates on the situation from the Mission or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to avoid being given fake news
South Africa has recently experienced an eruption of violent protests against foreign truck drivers by local drivers, the situation which has seen about 30 foreign trucks burnt in some parts of the country, particularly in KwaZulu-Natal province.
