If you don’t recognize my presidency, accept me as a tourist, Lungu tells L/stoneBy Mirriam Chabala on 22 Feb 2017
IF YOU do not accept me as President then accept me as a tourist, President Edgar Lungu told Livingstone residents yesterday.
Speaking upon arrival at the Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport, President Lungu warned that the consequences of not recognising his presidency might be too bad for those who dared him.
“Some of you might be wondering what I am doing in Livingstone. This is the tourist capital and if you do not accept me as President, then accept me as a tourist…For those people who are playing games by saying I am not President of Zambia, the consequences may be too bad for them because I will not recognise them too,” President Lungu said.
He asked the Livingstone residents to work with government officials in order to realise development.
“Don’t complain that President Lungu is ignoring you. So people in areas where PF lost, just receive us and let’s work together, because time for campaigns is gone. Let’s work with our Permanent Secretaries, DCs, Ministers, because this is time to work,” President Lungu said.
He insisted that he was free to travel to any part of the country to inspect government projects.
“Zambia is my constituency and I am free to go to any place in Zambia because I am responsible for all Zambians including those who did not vote for me; I am responsible for their security, health, education and for everything that the government is duty bound to take care of,” said President Lungu.
President Lungu, who was in Livingstone for a one – day working visit, also addressed a tourism stakeholders meeting at Chrismar Hotel accompanied by tourism minister Charles Banda.Related ItemsHeadlines
