HON. EDGAR LUNGU WILL NOT USE GOVERNMENT FACILITIES
It has come to our attention that there are concerns that government facilities are being used in the campaign.
We wish to inform the nation that PF President Hon. Edgar Lungu will conduct a fair, peaceful, and non-violent campaign as enshrined in our electoral laws and has provided for in good governance principles.
Hon. Lungu will not use government facilities. Although he is Minister of Defence and Minister of Justice, he has used party resources to conduct his campaigns.
In this vein, Hon. Edgar Lungu wishes to advise all ministers and officials to comply with his directives on the use of public resources.
From our laws, only the Republican President and the Vice-President are allowed by law to use such facilities.
As demonstrated by the two functions relating to the National Launch the party held in Kitwe and Mansa, the Helicopters and Plane used were hired from the private aviation companies and we wish to emphasize that NO government facilities were used from the Zambia Air force (ZAF).
We also wish to inform the nation that our National Campaign Committee will today Monday, sit to craft and announce a comprehensive 40 day national campaign program that will give details of the public rallies and public appearances by the PF President Edgar Lungu.
