  1. Good Induna I hope she will make it. Zambia is yes a roll model in everything we need to teach others our good governance.


  2. #4 EASY, Zambia is a role model?, in what? maybe teach others how we can enact a constitiution that gives a president absolute power and makes him a civilian dictator, or how we can sell our country and have 80% of our people unemployed, role model…


  3. Inonge is a political prostitute who only cares about the interests of the appointing authorities. In Washington they have fsiled to sell Zambia to investors instead they are getting free money for themselves in terms of salaries ans allowances. They cann’t even treat fellow Zambians with respect.

    I challenege her for a debate with me on various issues here in DC and in Zambia.


  4. #7
    What are you doing there yourself in the first place I am sure you are an economic prostitute. And what you yourself done to sell Zambia to Investors ?.

    Inonge is a pricipled and educated person. Fof your information Inonge spent most of her student life there in the USA. Her father is an Icon in his own right apart from being the founder of ANC party in Zambia, he was one of the most educated politicians and later become King of the Lozis.

    I challenge you for a debate my self


  5. The OAU is gone. Africa needs new blood and new thinking for the AU. Otherwise, it will just be another OAU under a different name.


  6. Wash DC,
    We know you, tenomba wayamba. To you it would have made sense to field either Kayope or Mama Chikamoneka.


  7. We are behind you , Doc, you are just what the Continent needs! Zambia needs to reclaim it’s position of being a leader and an beacon of light.
