Support, not criticism needed on load shedding – Lungu


PRESIDENT Lungu says there is no need to criticise him for load shedding the country is currently experiencing because this is a regional challenge.


Mr Lungu said people should support him in efforts to overcome the problem, instead of criticising him.
The President was speaking on Saturday night when he addressed Kenya-bound soccer fans at National Resources Development College (NRDC) in Lusaka on Saturday night.



“Namibia, Botswana, South Africa are all facing the same problem. Support me instead of criticising,” he said.
The President said this when he was advising soccer fans against criticising coaches unnecessarily.


And President Lungu expressed concern over the poor state of infrastructure at NRDC.
He observed that the only thing that has remained intact at the learning institution is the road while other structures are in a deplorable state.
Mr Lungu said there is need to refurbish buildings at NRDC.



  1. av been quiet for a long tym but I can’t hold it any longer, imweeeee ba Lungu bamudala don’t play innocent here, are you getting me, don’t play innocent, every country as a national climatic center, I believe they recorded the poor rainfall pattern we experienced in the previouse rain season, not only that, nafi ZESCO nafiena they record, why didn’t they seek for back up measures.. You have just failed us, you are a big disappointment together with the ZESCO management board, after noticing the poor pour of rains, they wud av set up back up measures, but due to lack of seriousness nd poor working habits, u affecting everything negatively hence contributing to a vicious cycle of development the cprices of copper on the international market have crumbled, in addition, the energy sector of this country is deteriorating hence affecting mines nd the industrial sector, hence reducing production hence contributing to hiking of prices for basic necessities. How do you expect us small business holders to surpport ourselves or meet daily needs, businesses like Barbing, saloons, metal fabrication(welding), butcheries, nd many more to survive? Shallow ! Shallow, Shallow lads, don’t make us lose the sense of patriotism
