FDD president Edith Nawakwi says President Edgar Lungu’s billboards should also be removed from the streets until the next election campaigns begin.
She was reacting to information minister Chishimba Kambwili’s directive to councils to pull down posters and billboards of opposition leaders because they made them feel like ‘they were also presidents’.
Kambwili told Kitwe district commissioner Chanda Kabwe that on his way to Kitwe, he was greeted by Nawakwi and UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema’s billboards and he wanted them pulled down because campaigns were over.
The chief government spokesperson said only President Lungu’s billboards should remain.

But Nawakwi, in an interview, said all political campaign posters, including those of President Edgar Lungu, should be pulled down to clean the environment.
“It’s not only the poster of Nawakwi or Hakainde that should be removed from the streets, because these are not the only political parties in our nation. It’s the duty of the council to remove any kind of a poster as a way of cleaning the environment, including the President’s posters, should be removed. Time for campaigning is over so every party should clean up; President Edgar Lungu’s posters shouldn’t be seen in the streets until our next campaign period,” Nawakwi said.

  1. Ba Nawakwi jst stay mute if u dnt have any devlopment topics to talk abt. wat is the bill boards doing to u? why do u like raising issues tht are nt constructive? why do the media even torelate u by delivering ur useless issues to the masses?

  2. There is a billboard for Nawakwi here in de CB still there not removed now where is the problem mama nawakwi

  3. What amazes me is how desperate Job seekers or bootlickers can be. They have included Edgar Lungu on the Jubilee Presidents. What I remember and know is that from 1964 to 2014, we have had on 5 Presidents and Edgar Lungu became President in 2015. That alone should make President Lungu uncomfortable about his followers. He is President for now yes, but why include on the Presidents that have served from 1964 to 2014. Who ever that initiative was must know its a dull decision to include President Lungu on those billboards where KK, FTJ, LPM,) and MCS are. If I were EL I would intruct the boot lickers to paint me out and find better ways of licking my boots. Zambian history from 1964 to 2014 does not include Edgar Lungu as President. The bill boards are misleading including EL.

    • Do u know wat u r talking Victer I think u Dont Know so let me tell u.From 1964 to October 2014 is not jubilee years BT October 2014 to October 2015 is the year of jubilee n that makes the 5 Presidents not jubilee Presidents BT ECL is the jubilee President so don’t talk abt things u don’t understand read the Bible young Man
