Detractors will fail – Lungu

STEVEN MVULA, Kasama
PRESIDENT Lungu says he will continue collaborating with the church no matter what detractors say.
The President has also said Zambia is for all and anyone is free to go to any part of the country.
“Those of us who believe in God today are reaffirming our faith that the Lord is capable of overcoming any challenge.
“I will keep calling on the church to help Government not just in the ministry of the gospel, but also in the social sectors where the church is doing a great job,” President Lungu said.
President Lungu said this yesterday when he greeted people at Saint Johns Catholic Church in Kasama.
“My message on this great Easter Sunday is let us continue working together,” President Lungu said.
Meanwhile, the President has said all citizens are free to go to any part of the country as no part of it is a restricted region.
He said he will soon travel to Sinazongwe to open a project.
“Let me see who says this and that area is a no-go area. I went to Mongu in peace and informed the Litunga that I came in peace and did not want to politicize the ceremony but they tried their best to provoke us and the police, and the result is now in the public domain. I leave this matter since it is subjudice,” President Lungu said.
President Lungu has also said that the governing party, the Patriotic Front (PF), has nothing to do with the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND).
“We can do business without the UPND. We can run Parliament without them, we can run the country without them, and so, we are proceeding without them, but I will not allow them to spoil it for all of us,” President Lungu said.
He said Zambians trust the PF more and more because they know they have a decent government in place.
“Those seeking to take power using underhand methods are tempting fate, and let me warn that I will take no nonsense from anyone bent on disturbing our peace,” President Lungu said as the crowd agreed with him in unison.
He said the August 2016 general elections are long over as the final whistle was blown by the elections office and courts.
“I am quiet and peaceful, but not a coward, and so, UPND MPs planning anarchy will face the full force of the law. The police are here to deal with any mischief.
“I want to show you that when you voted for me you did not vote for a coward and you did not vote for violence and unnecessary disorder,” he said.
President Lungu has been in Northern Province primarily to thank the people for voting for him and to personally inspect developmental projects.
