Former President, Edgar Chagwa Lungu has moved and settled into his new residence in ibex Hill, The house which was once put on sale for about 23 million kwacha is owned by Footballer stoppila sunzu and will be rented for the former President and his family by government.
Information has emerged that President Lungu shifted from State House on Tuesday afternoon just after handing over instruments of power to incoming President Hakainde Hichilema.
On Wednesday, Mr Lungu was pictured at his new residence in the company of visiting Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland.
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 honour 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.”
