President Edgar Lungu says he is ready to listen to
constructive advice from people who tell the truth and will
only respond to sensible things that will help the country.

who will confide with him on issues affecting the country than
someone publicly spreading falsehood which he will not tolerate
as he is human.

President Lungu said he is aware that some people who want to
become president are peddling lies about him in the Copperbelt
Province and said that he will not be bothered to respond to
them because doing so will signal that there is truth in what
they are saying.
“I don’t know who is peddling lies about me. I will not answer
back, at my level when I answer you back then it’s like am
promoting you and you may think am accepting what you saying.
For people who want to be president when am retired should work
with the people then you vote for them, put them to be where I
President Lungu said people should not think that when they
talk loudly they think they have the following of the people.
The Head of State instead advised people denting his image to
explain to the people on what they intend to do for the people
of Zambia once he leaves office.
President Lungu advised politicians vying for presidency to
learn to respect the will of people because he was
democratically elected by Zambians unlike some people who have
held onto power in their parties without holding party

lot of projects on the Copperbelt that President Lungu has
launched, which are progressing well.
Mr Lusambo said that the provincial administration will
continue to closely supervising them.

province were happy to celebrate yesterday President Lungu’s
birthday with him.
