Edgar Lungu has stated that he wants to contest the 2021 presidential elections because his friends want him to do so.
Speaking when he featured on a special interview on the PF controlled ZNBC today, Lungu said he was not causing any controversy by announcing his intention to contest the 2021 polls.
He claimed that the opposition was scared of facing him in 2021 because he is popular across the country.
‘I want to stand because my friends have asked me to stand so that we continue with the projects,’ Lungu claimed.
Lungu further said if the law says he is not legible to contest elections again then the earlier the decision is made the better.
‘If the law says you can’t stand bwana, the earlier they say so the better so that we find a substitute,’ Lungu said.
Earlier in the day confused former priest Frank Bwalya said Lungu will be asked or compiled to contest the 2021 elections by PF members.
The Zambian constitution does not allow Lungu to contest the 2021 elections as he is serving in the presidency for the second time but his sponsored minions took the matter to the constitutional court to determine his eligibility.
