‘I will win 2016 poll’


PRESIDENT Lungu has declared that he will convincingly win next year’s election.
The President said Zambians cannot be misled that the current economic challenges and power deficit have been caused by his administration.
He was responding to a question from a journalist during a press conference at State House yesterday.
“Zambians cannot be misled. If you cheat them, they will flush [vote] you out. But as for me and the Patriotic Front, we are coming back convincingly. It is Edgar all the way,” President Lungu said.
And President Lungu says the Public Order Act is an essential law.
“The Public Order Act is a good law but it is abused by those in power,” he said.
He said it is only politicians that view the Public Order Act as a bad law.
President Lungu said before the PF ascended to power, the party thought the Public Order Act was a bad law.
“Politicians who see the Public Order Act as a bad law have not brought forth suggestions,” President Lungu said.
And on violence, President Lungu said it clear that it is only one known political party that perpetrates violence.
“This violence is coming from one group. Zambians are not violent,” he said.
President Lungu said it is sad that suspected UPND cadres attacked relatives of Vice-President Inonge Wina in Nalolo.
President Lungu said the PF could have easily avenged Mrs Wina’s attackers but the party upholds the rule of law.
“Let us respect the law. When police say don’t hold a meeting here, heed them. Let us be sincere in our politicking,” President Lungu said.

    A group of prestigious university graduates came to visit their old professor. During the visit the conversation turned to work: graduates were complaining about countless difficulties and problems of life.

    After offering coffee to his guests, the professor went to the kitchen and came back with a coffee pot and a tray, crowded with many different cups: porcelain, glass, plastic and crystalline. Some cups were simple, other ones – expensive.

    When the graduates picked out the cups, the professor said:

    – Notice, how all the beautiful cups were picked out, and the simple and cheap ones were left. And although it seems normal for you – wanting only the best things for yourself, but that is the source of your problems and stress. You need to understand, that the cup doesn’t make the coffee better. Most of the time it’s only more expensive, but sometimes it is hiding what we are drinking. Actually, all that you wanted was only coffee, not the cup. But you consciously picked the best cups, and later watched what kind of cups others got.

    And now think: life – is coffee, and job, money, position, society – are the cups. They are only instruments for maintenance and upkeep of life. The type of cup we have, doesn’t determine the quality of our life. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cups, we forget to enjoy the taste of coffee. The happiest people are not those who have the best things, but those who enjoy the life and get the most of it with what they have.
