    • I don’t understand, do u mean brains or dressing? Coz brains I can’t even mention this is a serious boot leaker i have ever seen, Dressing, well Neva and all the rest were as smart

  1. this man is sick look at how dark he has become…….and the wife too is too dark she looks sick too……imwe have you seen how the residents look impoverished……sad story imwe!

  2. In church politics…. Party symbols. Other are listening to the sermon chaps are busy gossiping picture 9 and 10. If the fellowshipers wavedback in PF or UPND sure it would have been an issue.

  3. # 5, Bishop Joe Imakando once told us in church that both politicians and Pastors go for the same market (people)

  4. You have changed the topic now! Are you not the same people who were saying the MMD is not wanted in Western province for the Kuomboka. Now you are talking about how dark the veep has become. There he is, so who attacked him? Ba PF, you are not popular or famous. Your fame begins and ends in the Post Noisemaker

  5. the last pic! George looks like he feels pain when flashing that symbol, poor guy, he’s really in a painful and pitiful state

  6. #9 You have hit the nail on the head.  This year’s ceremony was not supposed to take place because of threat of violence. Now the Past says the number of attendees was down because of police presence! If there had not been any threats of violence and disruption then the police would not have been there in the first place. If violence had occurred and there was no police presence, the Past would have said that RB does not care about the safety of the people of the province. If indeed the number of attending was low this year then the people who have suffered are the people of W province as they have missed out on a business opportunity especially the informal traders who sell such items as tuma drinks and snacks.

  7. The sickness has obviously attacked the brain.Am sure RB has noticed this that is why party VP position was scrapped.Soon GK wll be using opposition to attack MMD like Mulongoti is doing now.Mark my words, its soon especially if rumours going round are true,there are three candidates for MMD VP who will be appointed by RB as “temporary” then later confirmed and these are Criticles Mwansa,Humphrey Siulapwa and HH.

  8. Mwansa 4, I find your blog rather insensitive and foolish for one who seems to be computer literate. Here in Africa and Zed, we call that stigma and it kills more people than AIDS. Stop that stupidity and find something better to do with your insensitive and possibly idle oblangata!

  9. Nafuti Nafuti a lesson to disoriented chaps feasting on he shove of an embattled tabloid. Kuomboka ceremony is of and for the people. Against their lies us who have attended this ceremony can see and hear that it has again been well attended against their lies.

    Nafuti Nafuti.

  11. I think just looking at the people seems a sombre mood rather than a jovial mood. It was a last minute effort to scrape any semblance of normality which surprisingly is not really convincing. Michael Kaingu or perhaps even Dr Muskotwane would have helped galvanise the people to celebrate more fully. Anyway, that s a by gone now. Now what remains is for Veep to report the truth to the high office as he saw it and not as the photos would have us believe – that is a lot more need to be done to restore the party’s image.

  12. #15, Nice one. It’s a long time I heard one use that term/expression ‘Nafuti’. Reminds of my childhood.

  13. Kunda is an embarrassment – Fodep president

    Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) president Alex Ng’oma has charged that vice president George Kunda is an embarrassment to the nation.

    Dr Ng’oma says the recent attacks by Republican Vice President on opposition Patriotic Front leader Michael Sata during his trip to Western Province where he was attending the Kuomboka Ceremony should be condemned.

  14. Dr Ng’oma says it is disappointing that the Vice President who is an advocate of issue based campaigns has been engaging in politics of name calling.

    He explains that Zambians are tired of politics of character assassination taking root in the political arena at the expense of developmental politics.

    Dr Ng’oma has further advised the Vice President to concentrate on important issues that are affecting the majority Zambians as opposed to attacking people’s personalities.

  15. And Dr Ng’oma has warned Zambians not to fall prey to the alleged political gimmicks by the ruling MMD ahead of the forthcoming tripartite elections.

    He says the recent directive by President Rupiah Banda to write off outstanding debts of over 3000 former ZCCM housing units on the Copperbelt leaves much to be desired.

    The FODEP chief adds that Zambians should be empowered because they deserve it and not in exchange for votes.

  16. I thought this man and his wife were Catholic. Instead of joining his fellow Catholics for Palm Sunday, he prays with Evangelicals!!! He even saw to it that the Palm Sunday walk in Mongu was almost cancelled. Politics of the belly once again …

  17. Who is not sick? Better for those who know their status. I enjoyed watching Kuomboka. Water in the Barotse plains does care people have to vacate to drier land. How do you avoid the function, why stop it. Dialogue if there are any differences. Who cares RB is winning again… Avoid harboring hate rage.
    See you at Kufuluela

  18. Photo # 9: Mr Nalumambe, putting your hand on another man’s thigh is a homosexual gesture! There you are very comfortable with your hand almost touching the other man’s shaft. Only in Zed

  19. PF is MMD branch, as such I cannot see the change any reasonable person would claim. Having the same people from 1963 to date coming to us in different parties is not change at all. I would understand it if people can stop abusing the word change, but to call it UNIP/mmd/pf in the name of Sata and UNIP/MMD in the name of Banda, as these are the same people who found Kanyama dry when they joined politics and have been in politics till now when Kanyama is in floods. Voting for these would be like solving problems using the same causes, Zambians wake up no meaningful development will ever come through these guys as they have failed us several times. Their Job is politics and zambians will not be taken for granted by remaining in poverty just to secure them jobs. People of western province…

  20. If anyone of us can realise why that post called minister without Port folio was created, would understand why Sata is a dangerous person for president. All these crimes commited by those who served in the Chiluba government were masterminded by Sata. These recycled politicians will never allow anyone outside their circle to rule Zambia because they fear for their protection. They could not allow Mazoka to rule because they new that he would not protect them as he was not part of them. Mwanawasa could not fight corruption fully because the money which funded his campaign was from zamtrop account for plunderers, For Banda the people who campaigned for him were the same plunderers, and For Sata he was one of them and even the archtect of their crimes. So Zambians wake up from slumber.

  21. Let me won you,Lusaka,Central,Luapula.Northern worse enough C/B ,we are all voting SATA.Kuya bebele.DONT KUBEBA.If they bring just receive ,dont KUBEBA.

  22. Donchi Kubeba is positioning himself to be Sata’s veep, with an eye on presidency after the much expected state funeral. That is why he wont stand as MP, so there are no complications to stand as president………….

  23. Let us talk about issues not some one’s health any of you will be sick one day or just drop dead- I do not belong to any party in Zambia but any one who writes about Kunda’s health is a low life!

  24. Lozi brothers and sisters next time lets use our kuomboka ceremony to get zambia to kuondoka(swahili) from our Barotseland.
