PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has today turned 63 years old.
He has been President of Zambia for the past five years having won a presidential by-election back in 2015 following the death of his predecessor Micheal Sata.
President Lungu was re-elected in 2016 and is poised to run for a third term in 2021 general elections.
For his supporters, President Lungu is a humble, likeable and prayerful Christian who has put Zambia on the path of remarkable and unprecedendent development.
But critics accuse President Lungu of corruption, bad governance and tyranny.
Political gatherings by opposition political parties have almost been outlawed by police and many blame President Lungu for it.
In his address at State House on Friday, President said he was a democrat.
