    K5billion for a pointless exercise. And that’s just one bank. Has anyone really counted the cost of this rebasing? Especially that non of the perceived benefits actually translate into tangible value creation. Useful, yes. Buts its not urgent, and its most certainly is not a priority. Just saying.

    Ms Melu, I am worried about my shares in your Bank not earning me income. I know you have doubled your pay over the time plus bonuses whilst shares of investors are not earning them anything. You use our money to make those profits but you let us go without dividends from our shares. Give us what is due to us if you are worth it.

    Mizinga, you’re boasting about profits. What about our shares which are now selling at K2.00 per share? What is our divident this time around. We spent money on
    those shares. Do something please.

    So 5 billion kwacha is a drop in the ocean if you can make so many billions in six months. What have you given back to the customers? Is it us milking forever?

    These foreign banks Stanchart and Barclays should start sponsoring football teams like Zanaco bank. They’re just reaping from Zambia without paying back. Standard chartered shares are the worst performing despite their cost conciousness. Zanaco’s shares are the best perfoming. Barclays is not even listed.

    She is Mrs Mizinga Shansonga Melu. Young sister to fugitive Attan Shansonga but the bembas were swift to get her. Sharp good looking Ila lady and very down to earth. Off course she has mooolaa in pounds sterling. No doubt about that. Genuinely worked for. Wezu ngwangu mushimbi ndamuyaya loko nkambo ngu musongo.
