President Edgar Lungu has challenged the opposition to furnish law enforcement agencies with evidence of how the ruling PF plans to rig Thursday’s general election.

President Lungu has also urged PF members not to retaliate saying the opposition wants to use political violence as an excuse not to accept defeat in August 11 polls. 

And President Lungu has said Zambians should not make a mistake of voting the opposition UPND into office because its leaders are businessmen whose sole interest is to only improve their businesses at the expense of Zambians. 

Speaking when he addressed a rally in Masaiti district, Mr. Lungu warned that once elected into power the opposition leadership will rush to award themselves government contracts to recover the money they have spent on campaigns since 2001.

ZANIS reports that President Lungu has meanwhile,asked Zambians to fairly judge those who are putting themselves up for elective public office.

The Head of State said humility and self-sacrifice are important attributes of a leader.
He urged Zambian people to reject Mr. Hichilema and all his aspiring candidates because the opposition has got nothing to offer. 
And First Lady Esther Lungu who is also in president Lungu’s campaign team called on Zambians to vote for God fearing leaders like her husband Mr. Lungu. 

Mrs Lungu said Zambia is a Christian nation which should be led by those who honour and respect God like President Lungu. 

The President is on the Copperbelt for a series of public  rallies in Masaiti, Mpongwe, Lufwanyama and Kitwe districts ahead of Thursday’s polls.
