  1. Ok now lets start moving.
    Tho i laughed about the Unemployed Associassion of Zambia,never heard of it till ystday wen they were supportin LPM roadmap on “better TV”

  2. Kuku# This is a chance for to come of Ndola and contribute something to this process. You fall down the church or civil society. Remember this a raodmap to make new Zambians laws.

  3. #2 Easy mwaice wandi, our parliament is biased, MMD dominates the house so even if a bill is not plausible its bound to go through because of the high votes it will get.So its not a very health thing,in short the house is not representative enough since what counts are votes not otherwise.
    We shall just wait and see were this move is leading us to, may be its taking us to Garden in Lusaka or Eden in paradise

  4. KuKu I beg to differ with u on that everything that has MMD signature will pass because they need opposition to vote with them because they don’t have the 2/3 majority in parliament.If the oppostion vote against the bill then it will not pass.My thing is that how much influence can the voters have on the vote that their representative are goin to cast on their behalf?
