Zambia’s Lungu tells Besigye to accept defeat


Zambian president Edgar Chagwa Lungu has asked Ugandan’s opposition members to accept that they lost 2016 general elections.

Lungu who arrived in Uganda on Wednesday evening is part of the African leaders who have graced president Yoweri Museveni inauguration.

Today, FDC said it had sworn in Besigye as its president and would go ahead to from a transitional government on national unity.

Besigye got 35% in the February 18 general elections.

Museveni won the election with 60% of the vote which was cemented by Supreme Court.

Yesterday, Besigye released 23 tweets alleging election fraud and proclaiming himself winner with 52%.

Speaking at Entebbe International Airport upon landing, the Zambian leader said the opposition must accept the will of the majority of Ugandans.

“Let the opposition parties accept the will of the people and accept the win of president Museveni because he went through elections and won,” Lungu is quoted by Daily Monitor as saying.

He added: “If you have a football club, you can’t use only one striker who doesn’t score.”

He advised the opposition to accept the loss and also change the striker because he has failed to score for all these years he has been on the football ground.
