Edgar Lungu bounces, regrets beer party cancelation due to national mourning

The Extravagant Zambia Prisons Service senior officers’ annual ball that was scheduled to take place on Friday 8th February at the tennis club in Kabwe was unceremoniously cancelled due to the national mourning declared by President Michael Sata in respect of the 55 Chibombo Post bus accident victims who perished on Thursday, but habitual drunkard home affairs minister Edgar Lungu tried to resist the cancellation.

Sources from the prisons service told the Watchdog in Kabwe that the annual ball was initially supposed to be held in January but was later shifted to two dates in February and that the prisons service had spent a lot of money in preparing for this event and wonder if ever they shall have it again.

According to the source, over KR1 million was spent on food, drinks, event decorations and acquisition of TV sets and fridges for the event at which Lungu was scheduled to be the official guest.
