We’re watching Lungu’s next move: Lt. Col (Rtd) Kaunda warns

RESPECTED Zambian Lieutenant Colonel (Rtd) Panji Kaunda says if there is any civility left in President Edgar Lungu, he should not think of doing anything mischievous over his “next course of action.”

Lt. Col Panji Kaunda, the son of late Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda, was reacting to President Lungu’s statement that he is charting the next course of action after the commission continued to announce results from Southern, Western and North Western provinces, even after the ruling party complained that their agents were barred from the polls.

Lt. Col Panji Kaunda said President Lungu is a competitor who did not have any power to stop the electoral process.

The former military officer said this was the same President and his party who told the opposition to wait for the announcement of results in 2016 and then take their matters to court.

He said he should follow his own example by allowing the process to move on and then take the matter to court once the results announcement had been finalized by ECZ.

“I don’t know what he is thinking. Let us see what he will do and then the people will decide, because the people have clearly spoken,” said Lt. Col Panji Kaunda to Daily Revelation.

Lt. Col Panji Kaunda served as Zambia’s Deputy Minister – Home Affairs (2015), Deputy Minister – Transport, Works, Supply and Communication (2012) and Deputy Minister – Defense (2011). – Zambian Observer □
