President Lungu assures Zambians of adequate security tomorrow

President Edgar Lungu says adequate security has been put in place as the country goes for polls tomorrow August 12, 2021. President Lungu explains that the deploying of police officers and other defence wings is meant to curb lawlessness during the election period.

The Head of State has since assured the public that tomorrow’s voting will be conducted in a peaceful and conducive environment.

He stressed that there is a government in place even as people exercise their democratic right tomorrow adding that He will only hand over power after the election results are announced.

“ There is a government in place even as people exercise their democratic right tomorrow. I will only hand over power after the election results are announced,” he said.

President Lungu furthermore urged the contenders in tomorrow’s general elections to allow Electoral Commission of Zambia ( ECZ ) to do its job professionally.

In his speech today during the last PF virtual rally held at Mulungushi international conference centre, President Lungu dwelt mainly on the need to uphold peace before, during and after the election results are announced.

He advised political parties taking part in tomorrow’s polls to emulate the PF for not resorting to violence after having lost the 2001, 2006, and 2008 elections.

“ The then PF leader late Michael State restrained members from engaging in political violence after losing the elections three times in a role, “ he said.

He counseled the victors of tomorrow’s polls not to habour anger or vengeance against the losers of the general elections.

Meanwhile President Lungu took a swipe at people who have been approaching him to accept defeat in tomorrow’s polls.

President Lungu wondered the motive of the people who have been asking him to accept defeat even before the votes are cast.

“ How the PF administration can lose the elections after having delivered development in parts of the country, “ he questioned.

Citing the energy sector his administration has invested massively in a bid to curb power blackouts in the country, President Lungu said the country now has enough energy to even export in the sub-region.
