  1. Pic# 21
    HH campaigning.The chap carried a cow to this funeral.I know HH cohorts will say he was being humane, but his main intention was to campaign not mourn.

  2. Well done to the brothers in Picture #4. Well proud of ya, chaps!
    Nomba ba LT shuwa, putting captions under pictures is not rocket science, FGS! As pointed out by Blogger #2, the caption for Picture 10 is downright pathetic!
    Better kanshi, you don’t write anything at all, as we can clearly see that these two kids are carrying ‘vigumbulis’ of water. Yaba!

  3. Congratulations Alexious Mulemba and Manda Banda In all honesty,with news and accomplishments like this,it doesn’t only make you and your family proud but up lifts all Zambians everywhere.Keep up the good work

  4. #21 continued..
    HH went late so as to attract attention and he made sure he greeted all mourners as shown in the picture.

  5. # 9, The picture does not show HH greeting all Mourners, it shows HH greeting 1 or 2 Mourners who seem to pay attention to his greeting.

  6. Pic 1-5-Nice knowing another Zambian making a difference.Pic 13-I wonder if that car was a runner before the burning ,i think it is just one of those vehicles one finds at police stations that were impounded many years ago.Nice pics atleast no Thandi Banda lelo, probaby the LT camera man who has a crush on her didn`t work.

  7. You M.O.R.O.NS leave HH alone. He always delivers cattle whenever/wherever there is a funeral which i believe in his tradition it’s normal. What did your Bwezani or Red lips took there if at all they visited????? Stop draggin HH anyhow, he deserves respect as he leads a big group of people too.

  8. @ LONDON the fought of oppression and one of the greatest empires in world history so as you could today blog from England.

  9. Wow Zambians in the middle east! we are everywhere.Bravo to Mulemba and Manda.#2and7 get your heads out of the gutter.Adults do many things other than what you are thinking.Those cutie pies are emulating their mothers,aunties and women in rural Zambia.pic 23 is that David Livingstone or maybe Cecil Rhodes? Guess some looks are here to stay.

  10. # 6, please be informed that its a southern province thing for people to donate a cow at a funeral. Its not prudent to go empty handed to a funeral when you know people need to eat! Especially if everyone knows you have thousands of cattle in your backyard. Just keep quiet if you have nothing to say.

  11. Well done … the middle east has got to be one of the most difficult places to crack. You guys have obviously shown them a thing or two.

  12. Where is Thandiwe? Is she not leaving state house these days? Nobody seems to mind the photos from the Middle East, whereas there was an uproar when the Zambian guy sent in pictures form Norway, why?

  13. # 19, on pictures 1-4, LT is telling us something about those zambians, but that guy from that country i can not remember if it was norway or Germany, it was just a picture posted and nothing was said about him. VIVA- ZAMBIANS

  14. #10 aka London. What your history books have failed to teach you is that Zambians actually fought in World War II as part of the British Empire. A lot of African troops served in areas such as Burma. You have to search very hard to find this info. In Zimbabwe a young man actually embarked on a journey to locate and document the WWII veterans in Zimbabwe. Since you are in London there are actually some archives you might be able to access to see who from Zambia served in the war.

  15. Congratulations to Mulemba and Banda! Zambians can do great things if given a chance, but corruption and nepotism at home has dis-enfranchised so many Zambians, robed them of opportunity and deprived them of fair play and level playing field. For years, successive governments have failed to tap Zamnbian skills and talents but PHDs, cronyism, tribalism, nepotism and sectarianism have been the order of the day! The Parastatals were led by people with challenged capabilities while brainy and capable Zambians were sidelined if they did not wave a UNIP card! MMD came but simply put on the same shoes.

  16. WHERE IS VJ RIGGER?DAT IMBECILE! MAKAKA IWE! THAT COCKROACH VJ RIGGER HAS BEEN CAMPAIGNING MY BAN FROM LT AND BLINDLY AND DUMBLY LT IS FOLLOWING THROUGH! IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY THERE WS A RULE STATED BY LT IN CONFORMITY WITH SELF REGULATION, SO HOW CN A PERSON SAY DELETE ME AND LT ACTS ACCORDING TO ONE IMBECILE’S VIEW? THERE WE HAVE IT,THE SIMPLE REASON WHY U ZAMBINS WILL NEVER DEVELOP AND ACHIEVE BETTER THINGS IN LIFE AS A COUNTRY! I AM SLOWLY CLOSING DOWN MY BUSINESSES AND SETTING UP IN OTHER COUNTRIES AS I AVE REALISED THAT ZAMBIANS HAVE A PROBLEM WHEN IT COMES TO FREEDOMS GENRALY, EVERY1 WANTS THINGS THEIR WAY AND THE LAW STOPS APPLYING IN SUCH SITUATIONS. THE BRITISH SHUD HAVE BEEN LEFT IN THAT COUNTRY FOR LONGER! CONGRATS TO MULEMBA BT ALL I CAN ADVISE HIM IS TO GET NEW…

  17. btw mulemba i advise you to marry buga woman, its much wiser to do so to prevent fighting after you are gone as is the case with the mwanawasa family! buga is the way! deuces!

  18. btw let me warn vj rigger and all those against me! lelo i ave smoked aka kali! try me and u will find out! im in bad mood and i will finish you! cunts!

  19. atleast the police officers in garden are eating women live! i like that bane! kulya fye! do u wear plastic mukanwa when eating inkoko? olo eat sweet na wrapper? kulya layvuuu!

  20. LT, Point of correction, Darius Hakayobe was not former Minister for Southern Province. He was former Permanent Secretary, I think from 2000 up to the time he was retired probably 2009.

  21. African leaders, whats wrong with them??? At that age, Queen Elizabeth still carries the wreath by herself but all the leaders in Zambia prefer to be assisted by other workers, whether its part of the protocol or not I really do not know. Why cant RB carry the wreath by himself???????????????????????????. All the past Presidents have been assisted to carry the wreaths why?????????????????

  22. Pic #1 -4, Jealous down guys. You see how Zambians we are, they have all disappeared, they are used to see Thandiwe and her husband.

  23. all that water from the kafue and our government fails to implement suitable delivery systems so that our people can access it. Thirsty yet surrounded by water!!! Those two little girls are cute but it’s a terrible indictment that 46 years after independence they can’t simply open a tap or go to a borehole…”My people suffer through lack of knowledge”…for shame!!

  24. LONDON@10. Second World War. And don’t think they should be dead by now, if someone was 17 in 1945, he will be 82 now and very much alive.

  25. Why honouring veterans of war?????? What about veterans of JUSTICE AND PEACE eg Haille Selassie????????Was it a cold war or there was bloodshed, anyway, its our human way of dong things.Even Barnabas in the bible was aqcuited at the expense of christ’s life .

  26. Hello #37 Shidada and #41 Miss Daisy, I’m also proud to have him as my fellow countryman… greet him for me when you see him.

    I’m sure there are also a lot of other Zambians making a difference around the globe. Better still, it would make more sense for us all to merge and make a big difference in our country. That is why the Zambian Diaspora Business Group is a very good initiative. It might not bring the desired change immediately but hey, it’s a beginning. The EU also had it’s forerunner, the EEC.

    Pics 13 & 15 LT has left me guessing again as to what led to these riots? Can some one fill me please?

  27. Hi Nine Chale… Yes if we all worked together, there would be no limit to what we would achieve.. i will hola at Manda….

    Guys, did you perhaps realise that when you click on the pic.. you can actually move it around.. baie cool nhuh..

  28. iye iwe ka daisy! omg! walila? this is ka mu guys kalya ka walai! how are you my lovely!? people keep blocking me! looking sexilicious baybay! ya nakumisinga! landa tumfwe! deuces u ka baby!

  29. Yes Mulembas, Alex Man we have always been proud of you. Such Leadership qualities used by other Countries. I know Zambians work hard but veru certain you have shown Middles East people one or two thing. You make Zambia Proud. Keep up the Good work man. Hope RB and his team can see what Zambians Do for other countries as they always believe in Muzungus than own citizens… well done

  30. #23 TO 27 Ndalya live, yes you do not only deserve to be deleted but to be cremated as well. You are full of filth that and I wonder why your silly comments are entertained on this blog. Be good and blog with respect.

  31. jeff kalale! its past your bedtime olo uli mu night shift mune? this is not yo site! my comments are my views free speech.. read about it. this is not a dictatorship. blame chiluba for freedom of speech.nili na ba madamu mu buga mu bed as i blog. goodnyt u ka 2vee

  32. You know, you know, you know. Alex just did what all you could do. Nothing special really. only thing is: you don’t have heads of government like the ones Alex works for. Those guys want what is good for their people.. Your heads of government want what is good for themselves. Huge difference!

    Simbao is now contemplating consulting foreign doctors. Reads the Post. What an insult to you all!

  33. @ Ndalya Live….LMAO!!! All that Pot in the Netherlands has clearly gone to u’re head. Soon you’ll be crying for Zambia. LT published your comment so that we can all laugh at you as a nation. One Zambia!!!
