‘Lungu can’t win elections, PF needs another candidate’

President Lungu’s welcome press conference yesterday, unfortunately, showed again how he lacks the tools to deal with the multiple problems facing Zambia.

He is at sea about how to deal with an economy that is flat lining largely because of overborrowing, reckless expenditure and straight out corruption carried by his administration.

Then, his views on the contentious issues dividing the country like #Bill10, abuse of the Public Order Act by the police, respect of court rulings are dangerous for stability.

Again, I conclude that the PF are best advised to replace EL in the 2021 election. It just makes no sense to go into an election with a candidate needing to explain so much he has got wrong.

I am certain that, if the PF decided to, they could find a candidate with limited personal garbage – one who could win them an election without the massive electoral irregularities needed to assure an EL win.

Simply, EL cannot win a free and fair election.

On the other hand, a rebranded PF under a solid candidate still could.

All that said, a view I strongly hold is that, if EL does the right thing for Zambia and does not stand in 2021, he should be left alone to enjoy his retirement. No court cases, no harassment. We should give the man due respect as a former President.

If we get a new competent President in 2021, all our energies should go to rebuilding Zambia because gosh, this Zambia is on life support.

    ECL will win again, the problem we are looking at the elections we are not looking at what someone has contributed in this country. Which Angel will make heaven on earth in this Zambia i believe our task is to put our hands together and help the vision for the president to be achieved. Let us think development, other countries are development because their focus is not elections but on development, because it in changing governments which makes us remain behind.

    I suspect Manga is Antonio Mwanza looking at the vulgar and childish comment. He is upset that we know he is a ghost worker at ZESCO.

    He forgot to mention ‘satanist’ and ‘freemason’ as per PF propaganda manual for online vuvuzelas.

    Laura, please concentrate on your upnd…! Are you sure you still want PF to win in 2021? Does it not make you happy that PF is going into 2021 elections with a weak candidate? Your advise is misplaced and only makes sense to your fellow negative minded opposition followers. It seems ECL is giving the opposition sleepless nights. Advise your upnd on how best to face ECL…. otherwise, your double h will cry again…!!!

    The article is well written but the problem of PF is that who among them is credible enough to win the Zambian Vote, when you look at the length and breadth of PF/MMD previously only two people were showing a bit of cleanliness in terms of not being corrupt and these were Inonge and another PF by association the Madam to the Alpha, but Ma Inonge has also plunged herself in a lot of issues that include forest 27 and the wife to the Alpha went ahead to bring those dinosaurs from America in pretence of bringing in fire tenders so it leaves no one at all, This KBF is the one who created the monster, therefore, making himself a write of or political Broken hillman, the best is let them go ahead with ECL so that we all wear pointed shoes to boot him out.

    PF needs to go to a convention where a presidential candidate should be decided upon. PF itself has been demanding of such from the UPND and other opposition parties. Therefore, it should lead by example by going to a convention and showing to all and sundry that it has nothing to fear. Even under a one party state with rules for political contest skewed towards the incumbent, UNIP still held party conventions. The problem we have today is that people who fear conventions are those who fear losing their positions of privilege should their favoured leader not make it. These are the charlatans speaking vociferously against conventions. For without a government job some of them have no qualifications to find a job anywhere else.

    Laura is roght on all key points including “giving the man due respect as a former President”- hoping this is only to persuade him to abandon his ambition to rig elections and stay in power,causing us more misery!!However,later,wherever he will be discovered to have committed crimes with impunity he will have to be brought to book! We need to set a precedent!

      Read between the lines. The article isn’t about Lungu going scot free.

      They want to block someone again like Mazoka in 2001 just because of regionalism. All it takes is rigging. PF only won in 2011 under Michael Sata.

      Laura Miti and Team RB would have preferred Mutati but his fortunes have since dwindled.

      At least she admits Lungu has failed on the economy but which competent puppet will they find to sort out the mess? Lungu or another stooge will mean a Zimbabwe Apocalypse. Besides the name mooted (see ZWD photo) is already implicated in corruption so the status quo will continue plus is competence is health.

      To be left alone to enjoy his retirement, the next one will also dip his dirty finger on the grave tray. And guess what left alone to enjoy his retirement, no, no no …
