Patriotic Front (PF) Presidential aspirant Edgar Lungu says contrary to assertions in sections of society, he has a vision for mother Zambia once elected as Republican President.

Mr. Lungu dispelled sentiments that he did not have vision for Zambia referring to how the PF emerged victorious in the 2011 general elections.

Addressing a public rally at Mulambwa Ground in Mongu Districttoday, Mr. Lungu said that the PF party managed to come into power in 2011 due to a number campaign messages of developing Zambia under the leadership of the late President Michael Chilufya Sata.

Mr. Lungu said that it was necessary for the people of Zambia to elect him as President of Zambia so that he could continue with the on-going developmental programmes that the late President Michael Sata left behind.

He said since the PF under the late President Sata had a vision for the country, there was no way he could abandon the on-going PF developmental programmes when he is elected into office on January 20th, 2014.

Mr. Lungu said that being a patriotic Zambian there was no way he could mess up on-going developmental programmes that were for the benefit of the citizenry adding that that him and his party would even initiate for more.

He said that the on-going developmental programmes in the health, road infrastructure, and education sectors in the province will continued by his administration if elected.

And Edgar Lungu has warned that he will not support gay rights in Zambia.

Speaking at a public rally in Mongu, the Defence Minister said he was not going to compromise human nature because of money.

“We will not support homosexuality. I will not compromise human nature because of money.

God made man and woman. A certain newspaper attacks me because they support gay rights. There is one small editor of one small newspaper who thinks he can overrule the will of the people” Lungu said

Earlier, the PF president first paid a courtesy call on the Litunga in Limulunga before proceeding for a public rally at Mulambwa ground. Former Republican Vice President under the MMD Lupando Mwape and other distinguished dignitaries where in his entourage.
