    I don’t believe in coincidences. The monkey action has a symbolic meaning… an interpretation bloggers?

    The pic of Veep Kunda below the monkey clips looks like he’s turning aside to burst in laughter after witnessing the incident.

    Nice to see Kofi Olomide, I still enjoy his soothing voice & foot-stomping music. Lokassa ya Mbongo!!!

  18. The lady sitting next to Sarkozy is the new face behind Mopao’s grip on the rhumba scene. Watch out for Suzuki as well, for those of you old enuff to differentiate him from the suzuki car. Bord Ezanga Kombo is Koffi Sarkozy’s newest release. Each time this man is in the country I happen to away. If Sanjeni Airways were here, I would have booked first class to Zed.

    Please! The police woman is not marching as on parade where she would not be allowed to carry her hand bag but this is just an orderly way of moving from one place to another in tandem and disciplined. At ZNS we used to say ‘not woyo woyo.’ Do not denigrate people and speak ill of these hard working never striking but sacrificing service men and women.

  23. The monkey did not urinate. The President thought it did. It’s sad that RB has now become paranoid because of incessant attacks on him, that he accuses a poor monkey of such a dastardly act! The monkey cannot defend itself. By the way, the way he went on about Harrington was definitely uncalled for. I am sorry that he lost it. Please, your excellency maintain excellence and no matter what stones small boys throw at you, do not join them! Please, keep cool. Be angry but do not sin.

  24. But I liked it when he said, ‘I will give this one to Sata.’ That one needs to be eaten. When or if Sata becomes President, it will be a mbeba that will urinate on him.

  26. RB thought that it was a blessing, but the moral of the story is, make peace with your enemies by giving them their most cherished delicacy. The monkey was saying, ‘I am here. Use me.’ Sata should expect a roast monkey for christmas.

  31. A monkey is a hero now with opposition cadres especially those of Prince Cobra. Most people in the west would do anything to have a monkey in their gardens. On the other hand that cheeky monkey can do very well on you`ve been framed.

  35. MAMA G # 63, You asked why under a tree? For the 13 years i worked there starting with KK and resigning under Chiluba, all major press conferences were conducted under the same trees to allow mass attendance.Typical misplaced politics in Zambia, the incidence now has preoccupied politics diverting every head from debating what Zambians want to hears for progress.little do we know that this has become a campaign opportunity for RB. The more we waste time on it, the more his name is selling.

  39. That is good entertainment expected from Kofi and troupe at leat pipo will refresh their minds after being blasted by ZAMBIA ONE. Just watch in the audiance there will be alot of senior GRZ officials with their women. So there is still money to flash out 300 pins per head plus booz. See you there. The only thing we get from our brothers and sisters from DR CONGO is MUZIK ya kweli nothing else. Original Rhumba gone with the late Franco and other musicians of yesteryears. Seeing is believing. Dont be told be there to avoid heart attach.

  56. # 70 MAMA G, you have asked if there is anything special about the area where press conferences are held in Plot1. Nothing special but best open space to take a big audiences be it conferences or political solidarity rallies, clear view of each people in attendance and disadvantaging would be assassins.The many trees there offer reliable shade from scotching heat.Plot one has a lot of trees everywhere.KK did a lot of conservation and gladly all consecutive administrations have maintained nature and wild life.In the first term Mwanawasa failed maintaining it clean and sustained but started responding in the second term.I had 13 straight years career of serving Zambians there until voluntary resignation under FJT administration.

  62. I grew up in Police Camp in Ndola. It was a daily routine for Kapokolas to do drills each time their reporting for duty and knocking off especially if it was day time. This made it easier for the Bwana Kapasa to check if the officers were ready for duty in terms being sober and being in appropraite attire. Looking at that picture those in para uniform there was a mismatch in uniform others in combat others in ordinary gear. As for the lady Chief Insp. it was not her fought she might have just bin ordered to join the formation with her handbag. When we say standards have gone to the dogs that is one typical example. No wonder cops report or drink alchol on duty. They are law to themselves. What is the command doing about such issues. A cop mits local and foreign pipo and reflects Zambia.

  63. The problem with today’s kapokolas is the majority join the service for different motivies. Its called a service. The best way to is to bring back shorts not trousers from constable to Sub Inspector. That is when they will exhibit smartness and they will work hard in oreder to be promoted to avoid puting on kaputulas. Mr. Kabonde and Police & Prisons Commission consider bringng patish and kaputula’s. That is the only way there will be discipline in Police Service. The excemption should be those who are involved in combat like para and mobile units. in fact Francis and others you wore those things. Late Laima thinking that time that it portrayed lack of respect for a constable to wear a shorts were wrong. When footballers are on the field they do it in shorts. This is way forward ZP…

  64. The whole lot of President RB Banda cried out in his or some other local language; even when the monkey seems not to have done anything on him. He even seem to have mentioned Sata’s name whick makes me think that the whole episode was a fake to attract unnecessary attraction.

    Funny indeed.

  65. These monkeys are becoming more smart than the MMD cadres. They so nonsense in his Press Conference and instead of just leaving without comments, decided to just piss on him. How come Monkeys are thinking better than some Zambians? Everything happens for a reason. Monkey saw his time being wasted, response, piss on the bust**d.
