  1. As we remember our messiah ,lets us also remember Judas Titus Chilubas Iscariot and his elder brother Rupiah Peter Bwezeni problems that People are tired and you must go .

  2. Nice pictures…….Question 2 (all those who like insulting are welcome to answer too) If you have not been to Zambia in the last 3 years please do not answer.Just out of curiosity please outline how RB has wrecked Zambia since he came into power in 2008.State how Zambia in 2011 is worse off than it was in 2008.Please give references where applicable.Are Zambians(not those in the Diaspora) worse off today than they were two years ago?

  3. HOW I WISH PEOPLE CLD LIVE IN PEACE AND HARMON LIKE THIS FOREVER JST IMAGE IN SOCIETY WHERE POLITICAL PARTIES CLD INTERACT THE SAME AS ABOVE PICTURES.ZAMBIA WOULD BE A BEUTIFUL PLACE .

  4. I envy Zambians so much.. they live in faith.. all their life and needs are besotted in the hands of the lord.. the diasporan survives on and believe in credit cards…..

  5. It suprises me alot these same pipo wld be at each others neck if they were to meet on the same grounds at a political rally .Any how may be thats what makes us humanz

  6. #3.RB hsa messed up the exchanged rate. LPM left it at 3000 its now as low as 5000. we are losing more $700million annually for U- turnin on the wind tax.imagine wat that money would do to better our lives. LPM managed to bring dwon the debt to somthing like $.500million. in RBs to yrs we have stagering debt of about $.1.3billion.wasting $53million on mobile hospitals. the fight against corruption is un heard of in RB’s Govt. he dines with chiluba and other crooks.disregard for laws, procedures and reguations. this is evident in the way he handled the zamtel saga as well as syphoning money out of napsa.RB is always travelling, wasting tax payers money. lives have been lost for lack of leadership on th barotse agreement. the list is endless

  7. #7the editor in chief…..A WEAKER CURRENCY IS NOT ALL THAT BAD A WEAKER CURRENCY WILL HELP THE COUNTRY TO EARN A LOT OF PROFITS FROM EXPORTS OUR URANIUM,COPPER AND AGRICULTER PRODUCE. AS FOR THE MOBILE HOSPITALS, WELL LETS TRY TO GIVE THEM A CHANCE YOU NEVER KNOW THEY MAY TUNRN OUT O BE VERY HELPFUL

    • if we are not getting sufficient tax revenue from increased exports then increased exports in itself simply benefits the foreign companies and not the country as a whole

  8. Bo Inonge at No. 3 – you have a point. My only concerns are: the copper mining companies are not paying adequate taxes in line with their production and profits; illegal land allocation still continues unabetted; there is still massive youth unemployment despite good economic growth; local authorities are not operating at optimal levels; and there is alot of “pork and barrel” politics. Other than that, RB has managed the transition well from the time LPM died. As to if he should lead another 5 years, let the Zambians affected by his daily rule decide. I live in Montreal and I am a Canadian!!

  9. #11 The answer is a very BIG NO. There is no record in the Holy Bible about such a celebration during the first century of our Christian Era. They refer to the time when the Jews welcomed Christ with palm branches in there hands. The Jews wanted Christ to liberate them from Roman rule and therefore welcomed him not as Messiah but as their own King. Christ later corrected their misconception and he never commissioned this as a celebration to be observed by Christians.

  10. # 8 Jombo Nokia, your economics is correct in theory, however, the Zambian case is different because our biggest export, copper, is largely owned by foreign firms who are not required to re-invest any proceeds from their sales back into the country. Having a weaker currency has not helped the Zambian economy to the extent that it could if the right policies were in place.

  11. Reminds me of those days when i used to be a Kampenga at a parish in kitwe. its time to repent especially mmd cadres, their leadership and sympathisers for insulting MCS and the boat crew.

  12. 100% WASTE OF TIME, DO THESE PIPO UNDERSTAND ALL THIS, KU ZAMBIA, THERES A SPIRIT OF TRADITION!

  13. Palm Sunday was not on Sunday in the Bible. These are Jewish matters which we would do well to try and investigate rather following clever made traditions and attributing them to G-d. If one understands that Jesus was a Jewsih man, and that he lived in a Jewish community with all the Jewish customs etc one would understand that he was crucified on Friday but on a Wednesday. That throws your Theology degree into quandary, and probably your faith too. When one wants to understand G-d, and Jesus one must begin with the Jews and Judaism, and the Jewish Calendar. That;s why Christmas and Easter are a big hoax.

  14. Olymipia Extension Chick is also loggin in as Editor in chief and blogging in from zed .cover blown

    • # 22. Under Cover Agent, if you look closely at my writing style, you would definitely know that Editor in Chief and I are separate entities. I do make comments on LT once in a while, used to comment a lot back in the days, but not as much now. You have your homework set out for you.

  15. This is nice that Zambians are gathering together, though let it be known that it is through Christ that we are saved. All you need Zambians is to accept Jesus as your lord and savior have a good preacher and share the word with your families.
