  5. Interesting pics which leave me with some questions:
    How did the pigs get to the Bus Terminal?
    Why is Mugabe seated away so lonely at an official ceremony?
    Is LCC not doing it’s job sufficiently for private garbage collectors to come in?

  7. Pic# 3, that intercity bus terminus is a nightmare, survival of the fittest. I was there 8 months ago. Every ng’wang’wazi trying to grab your luggage in the name of service.Even fists flying over each other for control of handling luggage.. never seen such behaviour anywhere else…really embarrasiing..

  15. Ba Mugabe pa #9 even relaxing. How do such people move around freely, do they have a conscience. Mugabe has broght untold suffering on Zimbabweans, people have been forced into prostitution to find money to feed their children. educted people reduced to chocolate vendors……chimanibaba. Ba LT you are lying that the council does not collect garbage. I hate it when people who diseminate information peddle lies. The council has a waste management unit., well I know for Lsk that collects garbage at a minimal fee. The trucks are seen all over and the green bins all all over.

  21. Picture No.8 will the powers be look into the sanitaion situation at Levy’s resting place. The place continues to attract pipo from all walks of life locals and foreigners and there is need for a full time caretaker. There is no need for excuse of lack of funds I am sure the previous presidents, serving and future ones when nature calls to pack up they will find themselves there. What happened to the Kenyan Gvt offer to train Zambian officers on how to maintain the late President’s resting place? Or was it just political taku from that part of Coalition Gvt. Someone to help me on this one. There usually one cop assigned I wonder if they are provided with lunch and smark looking kit. Those guys are supposed to be wearin g ceremonial. It ud ve made sense if ZNS,ZAF/ARMY tuku guard daytime.

  24. Its a relief that during colonial and post independence times pipo from N/West were called Nyamazayi that encouraged our brothers and sisters to study hard. Now its different story its guys from the North & East who have taken over the job. During time its was really kip Rhodesia & later Zambia clean. We did not need donors to come and teach us how to live in a clean environment. Mind you CLEANILINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS. As for my friends from South I ve often visisted their villages and when called by nature its difficult to find chimbusu just got told wait for night go behind animals get pushed around in the morning and its cleared. Ku Liverpool and west its right from the canoe and business is done. Lets us kip our environment clean. I invite guys to visit Zambezi & Mwinilunga to leni

THESE AFRICAN LEADERS THEY WANT TO LOOK YOUNG IF WHEN NATURE DICTATES. THERE WAS ANOTHER ONE WHO RECENTLY DIED HE KEPT HIS HAIR PAINTED NOT DYED. NO WONDER THESE GUYS HAVE CRIP ON POWER. LOOKING AT JAKAYA KIKWETI THE MAN LOOKED FRESH AND LIVE NO COLORING. THE ONLY GOOD THING IN PHOTO NO. 19 IS HH HUMBLED LIKE A TRUE AFRICAN CHILD GIVING DUE RESPECT TO ELDERS. THE GUY TALKS & DOES THE OPPOSITE WHEN IT MATTERS AS FOR PRESIDENCY COME 2011 SATA WILL USE HIS EXPERIENCE AND NUMERICAL ADVANTAGE TO CARRY THE DAY. UPND WILL USED AS BALANCING FACTOR.

  30. LT, Please stay faithful to your duty of informing and educating your readers so that they are able to reach valid and informed opinions. Try as much as possible to avoid the bias that has become the main feature of Post Newspaper. In pic #15 you say private operators collecting waste because Council garbage collection does not exist. The accurate position is that the Coucil has given private operators mandates to collect solid waste in designated areas and to do this the operators sign agreements with residents for such collections. I believe this is a good solution and it works well where I live. In pic #17 you say fairview where Executives eat. Actually, there is no legal restriction or adminstrative barrier to discriminate aginst anybody. Remember, you have an international audience.

  31. # 7. who cleans Levy’s Tombstone ? looks clean. Does anyone know how much they are paying the cleaner and to which ministry is reponsible ?

  36. Zosa Mugabe attended the Lwiindi in Livingstone for the Toka Leya at Mukuni village near the Victoria Falls. There are two Lwiindis one in Monze for Tonga’s and the other one in Livingstone for the Toka Leya’s though strangely happen at the same time.

  37. Pic # 13, imisebo sure. The car looks like it is balanced on 3 wheels! Reminds me of one of the trips i undertook to chilenje (Lazy Man’s) to have a beer and check out tuma honies mu hood. The road there is unbeleivable, at one point i thought i was in the movie transporter 3 coz the car was nearly on its side!

  38. Fairview hotel “where Lusaka executives have lunch”?? Thats very funny. I must admit when i was last in Zambia due to having missed the local vegetables and other delicacies i used to have my lunch there quite a lot. I thouroughly enjoyed it and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it, but to say where executives eat is pushing it a little. Its nice to see pictures every week.

  43. Pic. 1 is showing coins which are now obsolete. Why can GRZ ask all Citizens with coins to hand them back to the Bank of Zambia or at special points so that they could be melted into some useful products as a way of disposal that can help us regain some money value from those coins.

    Pic. 11 has remnants of vimbayambaya (very old vehicles) and I am wondering what plans GRZ has with regard to extracting useful money there.

    As for Pic. 19 President Kitwete and president HH are looking ready to discharge National duties while President RB Banda appears to be forcing himself to continue as Zambian President as he looks like their (Kitwete and HH) father — folowing his own words about him being HH’s father at his recent press conference.

    Have a good day.

  44. Bola Panshi # 53. Agree with you about the inefficiency of having so many people at reception. Fair, and any other hotels in Zambia, rarely operate at above 60% occupancy. To be efficient therefore, they would have to fire a lot of workers, which would lead to untold misery. From a management perspective i do not encourage wastefulness, but taken into context, and considering fairview is not a private institution, there are some social-economic benefits to having over employment at times. think of it as a form of welfare benefit.

  45. There has been serious debate in Zambia on the best method of baptism.

    Some think that submerging is the best while a million others think sprinkling water is a lot better

    Monkeys sat down on it and decided to do a reseasrch on the best method; one sprinkled on RB but there was no repentance what so ever. So the other decided to submerge Mpombo and we have all seen the results….

    Please Repent and choose the best

  46. Nice Pics, No. 10(samurai), What great things did chiluba do. Dont talk about selling houses to miners coz, we the new employees dont have decent accomodation. Lets not forget our mother tongue but still lets remind ourselves that only(usually) English can bring food on the Table. Yes we should respect culture, but remeber that that is all bututulism. If people used to use cort carts, it doesnt mean that if we can afford we shouldnt use cars. Civilisation is key. How can you be using a language unknown even by your president in an official function, just like SATA who uses bemba in all his campaigns. It tells me something

  51. TK 61, i agree with you regarding 38s’ use of capitals. It is gramatically wrong and creates the nuance of someone shouting or being rude. Capitals at the beginning of sentence or for proper nouns.

  52. Chanba 65, Zambia is not South Africa so why do you expect them to have what they have in South Africa?? There are a lot of fundamental factors which affect our economy and they will take time to correct even with the right administration. Its a bit naive to expect an economy of Zambia’s size and lopsidedness to be comparable to S.A. To pretend you are shocked, as if you never saw worse dirt when you were in Zambia is just plain embarrassing. Do you think that nurses would be striking for want of more money if there was enough to buy bins? When you were in Zambia, did you, or your Parents pay a levy (Council Tax) to your local government to cover provision of services? Where was the Rubbish at your home thrown, was it collected by bin men? Keep it real.

  53. LT you are slowly turning into the POST, what has goverment done to you? showing frustration through the captions on your pictures.

  57. Josphat, leave chanba alone. He or she came form a clean village and a Zambian city where there were council bins. Money is there in Zambia but corruption has made people like you think that there’s no money for councils to buy bins and refuge trucks. Where does the money the people pay for rates and car parking fees etc go? Look at the pot holes on our roads when people are always road tax and parking fees. High time we made our councils to be responsible.
