Lusaka – President Edgar Lungu says he is willing to concede power if Zambians decide not to vote for him in the upcoming 2016 elections, according to The Post.
Lungu said this while addressing congregates during a church service at the state house.
He said he would not cause chaos, but go peacefully.
"I want to love the people of Zambia and I don’t want to bring chaos in this country. So when Zambians decide to say Edgar Lungu should go, I will go. But for now, allow me to work,” Lungu said.
The president was adamant he would not allow blood to spill over State House.
Lungu has been under fire in the past weeks, with opposition blaming him for the continued deterioration of the country's economy.
Reports indicate that Lungu’s administration has failed to deliver on promises made during the election campaign early this year.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
