“…….What Edgar Lungu has done is very bad and I would rather die…..I will never seat back and watch an innocent person thrown in jail……” – Tayali
During elections I used to say, politics teyabana iyoo (politics is not for children) and I am sorry to President Lungu is one such political child who rose by walking in the shadows of Late Sata.
Before joining PF Edgar Lungu was in UPND but nothing is there for him to show, as in what he did as a politician. When he came to PF he was nothing politically, which is why he was could not be adopted in 2006.
I would tell you that, Edgar Lungu political career has succeeded because of others people and not because of his political astuteness. In 2011 when he won Chawama, it was because the wind of change that was there from MMD to PF.
The factor was Sata and PF, and whoever stood in the PF strongholds carried the day and that is how Edgar won that seat otherwise, if you check the archieves you would see how poor Edgar Lungu was politically, such that even my good friend Emily Nkoma used to wire him during debates.
I will leave out how he become President because Anthony Mukwita has done a good job to recount the event in his book “Edgar Lungu – Against all odds”. I have done a book review which I will post tomorrow morning at 08:00hrs (I could not post today because of the chaos of arresting HH).
Anyway, President Edgar Lungu is now a President by the Grace of God through the hard sweat of Late Micheal Sata, but the man is lost politically and on governance.
President Lungu does not know how to turn this Country around and give Zambians a better life. He is the worst mediocrer Zambia has ever had as a President. He does not even know where he is going and where coming from. He does not even know where he wants to take Zambia politically and economically.
Because of this political confusion and bankruptcy President Lungu is the most insecure President Zambia has ever had. He is so scared of anything and he is now using the State machinery to silence all perceived enemies.
Out of fear, he has closed down the Post in the pretext of collecting Taxes and caused Fred M’membe to go into exile.
Our President is such a political coward that he is even scared of women like Mutinta Mazoka who owns The Mast. Using his compromised friend Lewis Mosho, he is threatening the closure of The Mast like they have done with The Post.
Ba Richard Sakala thinks he is safe with his daily Nation, but let him keep writing about IG Kanganja and touch on Kaizer Zulu, he will come to appreciate my objectivity and desire for justice. I will always defend the oppressed and unjustly treated even if we don’t agree on some issues.
Instead showing leadership in dealing with Hakainde Hichilema (HH), President Lungu takes his coward easy way by using State machinery to send HH to prison for Treason over a motor race that himself (Edgar) enjoyed as he waved his fist out through an open window.
Instead of the Country focusing on how we should sort out our economy, President Lungu has set all the resources on trampling on all those that he is scared of.
The news in Zambia is about police, courts and intimidation. It won’t be long before people start dying mysterious while Rev. Sumaili and her fellow Christians for Lungu Bishops and followers are praising him of being a man of God when he is not even baptized as a Christian.
I will live to appreciate Kaizer Zulu for his good heart, unfortunately, he works like a robot to execute anything he is sent to do. If Kaizer worked with a good person, he can be very useful to this nation, unfortunately he is in wrong hands.
I have a lot of disagreement with HH, but you have messed up to imprison him for having had done nothing wrong. What Edgar Lungu has done is very bad and I would rather die of hunger if all those who help me in one way or the other do not agree with me. I stand on principle and fear of the Lord, therefore, I will never seat back and watch an innocent person thrown in jail.
God is seeing your evil actions and you will be made to account for it. God gives you power and you abuse it in this manner. I am not happy and I will never accept such evil. #RELEASE_HH
I want to do politics in a way that God will be plead with me and President Lungu should ask himself if God is happy with what he has done to HH. I can never do that. Lord have mercy.
