KABUSHI PF member of parliament Bowman Lusambo says he plans to stand as President, vowing that in future, he will employ those who are insulting him today.

In an interview, Lusambo said people should not underestimate his popularity.

“I want to stand as President, but I haven’t told you on which political party, but I have told you that I will stand as President. We are going to cross the bridge when we get there. The Bulldozer’s name is everywhere, go to Mongu, go to Kalabo, go to Vubwi, go to Nchelenge, go to Serenje, the bulldozer’s name is everywhere. Don’t underestimate the Bulldozer’s name, this popularity is not just coming from without, we have been building our political future for quite some time. We have participated in politics at the lowest, middle and where we are today. For those who want to insult Bowman, I am the one who will be employing them tomorrow,” he said.

Lusambo said he possessed the qualities of being Zambia’s President.

“Bowman Lusambo is not a small name and I want to urge people not to underestimate Bowman Lusambo. I have been in politics for quite some time, I have worked with five presidents. The experience which I have gained from working with all these presidents, it is not a small experience, it is a very big experience. There is no one here who can boast to be a political giant in this country without putting the name of the bulldozer. Then that person will be lying. When we say one day we want to govern this country, don’t underestimate our statement,” he said.

“We are very serious, if we stand today I can assure you that we can’t manage to have one vote, we can’t manage to have two votes, we are going to compete with whoever is going to be there as political party president, we are going to compete. Remember when you compete you are destined to get the position. If President Hakainde Hichilema has qualities to be President, what stops me to President? One of the qualifications of Presidency is to have the heart of the people. I have more Presidential qualities than Hakainde Hichilema, so if Hakainde Hichilema is President today, it won’t be difficult for me to be President.”

He said despite his ambition to be Republican President, he would support anyone the party would select to be PF president at the upcoming general conference.

“Whoever will be picked as PF president when we go for our national conference, he will be supported by all of us. Whoever he will be, will be supported by all of us. Our common enemy is not positions in the party, our common enemy is to make sure that we rescue the people of Zambia from UPND. They are not fighting corruption, they have no capacity to fight corruption. They should not take it lightly that when we come back in 2026, us we will fail to fight corruption, we are going to fight corruption and we are going to arrest them. Us we have told them to arrest us and tell us what we have stolen,” said Lusambo.
