Chawama MP Egar Lungu says he will reverse the decision by cabinet to increase the retirement age from 55 to 65.

Acting president Guy Scott recently signed a law that increased retirement age for public workers to 65.

But Lungu who is also the justice minister told people at a campaign rally in Mandevu compound that he he prefers that the process of setting the retirement age should involve consultations from all stakeholders.

He didn’t say whether he is justice minister was not part of the cabinet that approved the increment.

Lungu also said he to listen to everything that the people of Zambia instruct him to do once he is elected President.

He said he will do everything that the people of Zambia want him to do because as leader he is a servant of the people and therefore must listen to them.

Lungu also said there are people that are bent on opposing him because they owed the Zambian people billions in taxes and that he will ensure he recovers them once he forms government by strengthening authorities responsible for tax collection amid cheers from the crowd.

Llungu further pledged to recognise Henry Kanyanta Sosala as the Chitimukulu the moment he walks through the doors of State House.

Lungu claimed that the process of recognizing Sosala was already underway even before President Sata died.
