After handing over the instrument of power to Hakainde Hichilema, Zambia’s former president Edgar Lungu has kissed goodbye the State House and relocated to a rented house which is owned by a footballer Stopilla Sunzu in Ibex Hill.

According to reports, the government of Zambia will be responsible for rentals of the former president and his family at their new residence.

Information has emerged that former president Lungu shifted from State House on Tuesday afternoon just after handing over instruments of power to President Hichilema.

In 2017, Mr Lungu had indicated that he does not want government to build him a retirement home after leaving office as he had a number of houses he would occupy upon vacating State House.


In a Tweet Wednesday evening, Mr Lungu admitted that he would miss State House.

“For the past 7 years, State House was a residence for me and my family but I never took it for granted that I would not take my last stroll in these grounds one day; and yesterday, I did. But I did it with a sense of honor that I did my part, just like the 5 presidents before me.”


“I carry with me great memories of the time I spent at State House; memories that we share with many who came as our guests. I’m thankful to the dedicated workers who made our stay memorable,” Mr Lungu wrote.

“My prayer is that the next residents will also create their wonderful memories.”
