  1. Yup, our First Lady looks “upgraded”, just like this marvellous site. I she got a tip from Michelle Obama and finally discovered Victoria’s Secret.

    Jokes aside, she held a good lecture at the golf club. AIDS and Cancer still remain serious threats against humanity and more attention than is currently being given to the sw. flu.

  2. Reading Roger Chongwe’s responce to his compensation saga swirling around Kanitundila made very interesting reading. Like I have stated before, it vexes me deeply that the same country which the likes of this learned and highly intelligent legal mind call home could also be the home of Mr Bwezani Kanitundila Banda, the Zambian president, who seems completely incapable of any reasonable length of sustained logical thinking without lurching either into embarrassing inconsistencies or wallowing into stinking plain lies. Maybe being born in Gwanda has something to do with his character but one tends to see this in many of them, here I have in mind Chiluba, Sata, Mulongoti, Miyanda etc. They all need their heads tested for “masalamusi”!
