Enough is enough – Lungu

STEVEN MVULA, Mpulungu
PRESIDENT Lungu says the United Party for National Development (UPND) must stop electioneering and give space to Government to develop the nation.
Mr Lungu said in Mpulungu during Easter that UPND are bent on bringing anarchy in the country, but Government will not sit idly by and watch them destroy the country.
“UPND wanted to embarrass me at Kuomboka but I told the Litunga that I was not at the ceremony for politics but to merely attend. Please excuse us so that we work,” President Lungu said.
He said the UPND have refused to “eat with government, but want to spoil the meal”.
“We will deal with them. If it means locking up all of them, we will do so. We can do business without them [UPND],” President Lungu said.
The President said “enough is enough” and that it is now time to take decisive action against the UPND.
“I am now reacting. I want to be angry this time. We will no longer allow fighting and lawlessness,” President Lungu said.
He said he is not a coward and he is on firm ground.
“Zambians have seen hope in our leadership and we respect the rule of law. They will not succeed in bringing anarchy in this country,” President Lungu said.
And PF member Jonas Shakafuswa, who was part of the President’s entourage, told the cheering crowd that UPND must concede defeat instead of resorting to bringing confusion.
“I am a living example of a man who lost an election and accepted. UPND must do the same,” Mr Shakafuswa said.
Mr Lungu was on a four-day tour of Northern Province to inspect various development projects.
He has since returned to Lusaka.
