PF CLARIFIES FORMER PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU`S INVOLVEMENT IN POLITCS

By Leah Ngoma

Patriotic Front Media Director Antonio Mwanza has clarified that former President Edgar Lungu has retired from active politics as evidenced by his letter submitted to cabinet office although he retains the right as a citizen to comment on political matters.

Mr Mwanza explains that chapter 15 of the benefits of former presidents act defines what being in active politics means, which include the doing of any act indicating a person’s intention to hold elective or appointive office, or the holding of elective office or appointive office in a political party or in an organization whose main aim is the furtherance of political objectives.

Speaking when he featured on Friday’s edition of Let The People Talk Programme, Mr. Mwanwza argues that Mr. Lungu is therefore no longer in active politics and has no control of decisions of the pf as he is not in any leadership position

Mr. Mwanza notes that there is a notion by some sections of society that the former head of state should not comment on matters affecting the country but warns that Mr. Lungu will not keep quiet when his family is allegedly being persecuted.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mwanza has reiterated that the current fight against corruption is allegedly a malicious campaign aimed at denting the image of the former President Edgar Lungu and the patriotic front.

  1. Also comment on the fact that you and others were encouraging Lungu not to give up power. Give us your position on what you know about the matter.

  2. I hope lungu has learnt not to listen to advice Antonio. Meanwhile Antonio should ve arrested. He was advocating for chaos in the country by telling Lungu not to concede defeat. Prior to this Antonio was advocating for ensuring HH died in prison.

  3. There is nothing personal about how the investigating wings are going about fighting corruption in the country. Only those who stole from the Zambian people should and must feel the heat of the envestigations.Thise who looted the resources meant to benefit the ordinary people are the ones being targeted. By the way, there shall be no sacred vows, no matter who they are or what position they held. If they stole from the Zambian people, they will be visited and asked to tell their side of the story. The innocent have absolutely nothing to fear!

  4. What is there to clarify, when the rat toothed mouth vomited clear vomits on the screens of the TV stations?

  5. No one, including ECL, is being persecuted in the fight against corruption. The man is a well-documented thief having robbed a widow of her inheritance.
    Revelations by President HH that the Gulfstream jet cost USD 190 million are deeply troubling and this matter alone warrants locking up ECL for good. The jet should cost no more than USD 76 million.
    Where did the extra cash go?

  6. PF DENTED ITS OWN IMAGE THROUGH MOBOCRACY, KLEPTOCRACY, AUTOCRACY, FAILURE TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION INSTANTIATED BY THE ILLEGAL STAY IN THE OFFICE BY MINISTERS DURING GENERAL ELECTIONS, PF CADRES ATTACKING POLICE OFFICERS AT POLICE STATIONS, DENYING THE OPPOSITION FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY, AND OTHER PF GOVT IGNOMINIES. SO ANTONEEEYO SHOULD KNOW THAT THE PF DENTED ITS OWN IMAGE BEYOND REDEMPTION.

  7. HOW CAN THE SECOND DEVIL, ANTONIO, DEFEND FIRST DEVIL ABOUT THE EVIL THEY ARE STILL DOING, WE CANNOT AGREE TO WHAT ANTONIO IS SAYING, NOOOO. THEY WERE SERIOUS, WANTED TO KILL HICHILEMA AND ALL STRONG UPND SUPORTERS LIKE SOME OF US. HE CANNOT REFUSE ABOUT THEIR CORRUPT ACTIVITIES BECAUSE OF THE USD 32 BILLION LOAN WHICH WENT MISSING BUT THE OWNERS WANT IT BACK THROUGH NEW GOVERNMENT OF UPND. NO SHAME AT ALL.
