  1. First Lady Thandiwe Banda arrives at the University Teaching Hospital to donate wheel chairs………………………. on behalf of the tax payers (I just thought i should clarify that)

  2. !Iwe chi Mali Kaya kwati teiwe chi mod. Write that in english you tool!

    #1 Please let them be. Ku Zambia you are all thieves.

    #10 What music were these two men dancing to? I bet Dongo na Sunda! lol!

    #5 Talk about dressing for the occasion!

    #4 Did any one watch that Brit girl in Uganda with her programme about gorillas on Wednesday? No offence here please.

    Off kuma pint now. Hope you all have a good weekend. Please pray for that boy and girl back home who

  3. #5 Contd. Please pray for that boy and girl who have not had a meal today. Even as you go to throw those left overs in the bin please say a prayer. There are people in Zambia who have not had anything to eat today. Yet one is dancing to the Dongo na Sundu tune with a full belly. I love you all!

  4. hold on that mercedes pullman that Banda is residing in is impressive… pa zed first time to have a leader like this, i used to hate the one mwanawasa used to ride in old school s600

  5. Picture 1 tells a very sad story.zambia has been denuded of trees and forests to such an extent that it will be part of the Kalahari desert within the lifetime of a generation. Those who can, look at Google Earth and you will notice how brown is the predominant colour over Zambia where high resolution maps are available. I wonder whether the Environmental issues are very widely publicised. The excessive deforastation will cause soil erosion, mud slides and silting of water reservours. This will lead to worse water blues and failure to generate electricity. Zambians wake up!

  6. Magicroundabout Hope You Find All Your Answers In Kuma Pint You Are Worse than The Thieves In These Pictures Your Words Even Tell What Kind Of A Person You Are.

  7. The National assembly grounds looks tidy,why does the city council not do the same for lusaka innercity because in some areas, its a very shameful sight to behold all the dirty around.

  8. The mp’s look very dapper , I wonder if they are just a bunch of bench warmers or do they realy advocate and campaign for their constituencies and not only show up when it’s election time.

  9. #5 & 6. Hilarious Magicroundabout. How long did it take you to work that one out? I like Dongo na Sundu. Gorilla is just about right as well. Ma guys mulibakali zoona.

  10. Uuuhh, Is that SAKWIBA SIKOTA seated on front bench? isn’t that area only reserved for ministers, or may be even State Councils

  11. #10 What has Magic done? I smell a rat here! Magic don`t be pulled down by little sados like #10. I enjoy your contributions let alone todays. Once again. Hilarious.

  12. The problem we have in the poor nations is that we missplace priorities we spend all the money mea nt for development to buy one posh car for one man;; we put emphasis on pride rather than reality what a shame icipale capa musebo ku nganda ba le bongolo nensala mayo whom do you want to show because we know Zambia cannot even manage to feed its own people;Pride on borrowed money?

  13. No.19..that is so correct.Unless we Zambians rise up in masses to re-direct our country into the right course,we will be worse off than Nigeria on the index of the most corrupt nations.Right now is free for all….´´GET ALL YOU CAN THEN CAN ALL YOU CAN GET AND SEAT ON THE CAN AND LET THE REST ROT AND WOLLOW IN POVERTY´´:

  14. #19 and 21 are you guys serious….. zambians will never make anything out of themselves, we missed our chance after independence, guys dont wanna go to school… there is no mineral exploration in the country and for those in the west u know there is a lot of people smoking, u would think zambians would grow tobacco and export it like it was cocaine… but no, instead they are more interested in zambianism, which is “stealing or complaining”

  15. The House is not in session, so I believe one can sit anywhere depending on when one arrived. That is why Sikota sat in that position.

  16. While we are busy fighting over politics demonic racist cults like the Mormons are setting camp in out beloved Zambia and around Africa. Let’s fight all things evil. If you think I am wrong I have lived in their areas before, this one time Zambians cannot be docile, balitumpa ababantu, I rebuke them in Jesus name, ama mormon. Great pictures though let’s look at how blessed Zambia and Africa is and let no foreign entity taint them, from the east, north or west.

  17. I love my beloved country, my beloved people and all from the brother king Solomon to my Lord Jesus. I even love you too Mushota and feel for you when you give up on the most beautiful males the Lord has created, yes us the brothers. For really all werecreated in God’s image those that choose to become indoshi do so at there own descretion. So by any means wisely necessary we need to enlighten our brothers and sisters back home. May God bless Zambia.

  18. ba LT pali dora bushe ni police or policy.
    but mudala moves muchela benz bakalamba. ninshimbi iyashupa zo-ona.
    I WANT TO BE PRESIDENT ALSO come 2020 i am standing…….

  19. GUYS Zambia needs us let us work 2gether to develop this country. i very much believe that our country can really develop to a level of a first world yes we can. we only 10 million people this is a small # to feed…..we can do it people please believe me. if we don’t do anything today our lives will be in mess come 2o years from now when we will be old. come lets do it think positive for this beloved country……we have everything name it…….
    me i cry mwandini….we are better than most countries ..all we need is a bit of push then we can pull thru….we have the peace so lets just work hard with our brains.you will see this country changing for the better in 5 years.

  20. Intermarket Banking Corporation should be reminded that who ever came up with the idea of lending money to marketeers is a wrong chap. Marketeers are highly mobile and majority trade due tomvarious circumstances. Whatever the amount they are exposing themselves to high risks. Wait and see. They gona cry yellow tears

  21. The whole idea of an impressive motorcade is spoiled by those chaps in an open van. The pipo concerned with RB’s security detail should rethink and come up with a better strategy. Those chaps should be made to diembark at a certain and made to trot not being made bwanaz. I still remember the likes of Duncan Mtongo trotting besides KK’s motorcade. The problem nowadays is that we dont have career cops, soldiers, Shushushus, teachers etc but chancers and businessmen. Lufumo uko, matako monga ba Zimayi. Fit men and women in uniform are only seen when there is a passout parade or during shows. The rest is just window dressing. Imagine those chaps lamped in an open van and in a situation like Iraq or Afganistan.

  22. Nice pics LT.

    #25 & #31 where have you been? Go back a few days backwards and you will find the story/pictures you’re asking for.
