Clergyman John Mambo says former President Edgar Lungu has just declared war against people who voted him out by returning to politics.
After endless speculations, Lungu on Saturday in Lusaka whilest addressing Patriotic Front members at the memorial service late President, Micheal Sata, announced his come back to politics vowing, “I will not allow factions in the party”.
Mambo told Zambia Monitor that Lungu had put everything in jeopardy and risked being ridiculed by people who respected him after he announced his retirement from active politics.
He said Lungu had made one of the biggest political blunders in history and would regret once the same people who are misleading him that he can win in 2026 scamper in different directions and leave him alone.
“Lungu should have learnt from second President Fredrick Chiluba who when he noticed that people did not want him to stand for the third time decided to let go of his plans and rested away from politics,” Mambo said.
The clergyman said Lungu was back to not only fight President Hakainde Hichilema in order to return to power but would spend the period between now and 2026 fighting his own members like Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa.
He said Lungu was being deceived by those who want him to come back to politics and that this would not work because his time was up.
“He is the only surviving former President apart from Hichilema, and the young people who voted him out of power will exercise their right in 2026,” Mambo said.
He claimed the process of reconciliation had been put under jeopardy by the bad, selfish decision which Lungu had made to please a few deceptive individuals.
