COVID IS REAL…AM NOT TRYING TO RESTRICT CAMPAIGNS – PRESIDENT LUNG
PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says COVID-19 is real, although some people think he is trying to restrict them from going round to campaign.
Speaking when he met traditional leaders in Chishinga, Kawambwa District, President Lungu who spoke in Bemba said the country would find itself in a dire situation if people did not adhere to the COVID-19 health guidelines.
(We know that we are holding elections on August 12 this year, I want to encourage you tell the people that the COVID-19 pandemic is real and a lot of people have lost their lives. Some people think I am trying to restrict them from moving. I know the pandemic is real. So I want to encourage you, tell the people of Kawambwa that let us adhere to the health guidelines and wear masks so that we see how God can help us,” said President Lungu.
“If we start denying that the pandemic does not exist, we will find ourselves in a dire situation. And people will be looking to the government that we did not caution people. So you help us. Our friends think that we want to hide, there is nothing we are hiding.
You can gather few people so that you can tell, explain to them your messages without bringing a lot of people like what I am seeing).”
