  1. pic 12-14…nice ukumona banamariketi.I think illegal vending will never end.These people just follow where the money is at.I think even us consumers we are to blame coz we are the ones who encourages it by buying stuff from these tuntemba`s.Pic 6 didnt know that ba Banda has now been posted into the diplomatic service.Nice group photo too coz they looks the same age from the president to his diplomats.

  2. Our research students say that to have a clean city or country, you need a strong leader whose directives can be obeyed. You also need laws which penalise the culprits for throwing garbage anyhow. We Zambians have become immuned to garbage. When we’re in RSA or Botswana or Namibia etc we don’t throw rubbish anyhow. Yet in Zambia, we just throw rubbish anywhere. We need a people revolution that will go to Lusaka Dirty Council and demand the resignation of the incompetent officers, counsellors , etc. We also need to put pressure on the MPs within Lusaka.

  3. pic 12-14, PF controlled councils for you.The 90days turned out to be eternity for PF to sweep our cities of illegality.’Man of action’ my foot.

  4. Pic 1 Everytime I see a picture of the Tiyende Pamodzi singer, aka KK I just feel proud to be Zambian.

    Pic 2-3 Nice to see one of the contemporary Jazz artists in Zed. Was he in for a private visit or did he perform? If he did hope the audience enjoyed the way he strings the guitar.

  5. PICT 11:
    Thank God we haven’t reached the stage of rummaging through garbage for food and valuables as I saw in Mombasa, Kenya!

  6. Pic.6 – One look at their XXL sizes and you realise these guys have not missed many meals.
    Pic. 9 – Healthy looking kids. Boy sitting on Deputy minister’s lap with an ‘are-we-done-yet?’ look is clearly not impressed with the photographer fumbling with the camera and taking too long to shoot.

  7. LT picture no# 4 sentries sure!!!!!!( in my local accent and meaning) awe that’s a little iffy.
         Pictures with the dirt, are councils in Zambia there only to offer employment? that’s a lot of rubbish hahahahahahahaha.
    Zambian we need to arise ourselves and clean our surroundings then call on the concil to awaken.

  8. Good morning
    I also feel quite happy whenever I see a pic of our first president. I think it’s comparable to the feeling of pride that Americans get when they see images of George Washington. Pic #9 those kids look smarter than the vulnerable kids we’ve seen on the streets. Anyhow, it’s a good initiative and let’s hope it was not just a PR show for Easter. The filthy side of the city is really a pain in the neck. Doesn’t the council have enough work force to clear that rubbish or is it lack of proper equipment?

  9. We need researchers to go and check how to strengthen immunities of the sicka round the world. Surely no amount of medicines can save you from that amount of germs. its the strong immunity of Zambians that keeps them going.
    Amen

  10. @#14 SBM you are very right. Even the so called bursaries go to the already rich or GRZ officials children. *Fyolad*

    A Kaponya moment from a P.F cadre who does not understand its a P.F job that has failed lusaka city.

    VOTING FOR SATA IS UNDERSTANDABLE FOR THE UNDEREDUCATED.

  12. P.F = POLITICAL FAILURES…..SHOW US WHICH COUNCIL IMPROVED IN 90 DAYS TO LEAD ZAMBIA NATIONALLY AND WHY HAS LUSAKA P.F COUNCIL BEEN THE WORST IN HISTORY?

  13. I was recently in Lsk. I saw a Police officer throwing rubbish from the car on Independence Avenue just near SDA Church. I was on a bus going in the same direction with the same Police car. When we reached the traffic lights I told the Police officer to set good precedence by not doing what he did. The response I got from him was” don’t tell boma what to do and I can impound the minibus” and off he went.

  14. There was so called change at council level, look what we got!!! It’s shameful that such images are accessible internationally. Ba PF what benefits are saying you’ll bring to the people? This is scandalous, I went thru Kitwe, Ndola and Lusaka as far back as 2009, what a disgrace!!! You have made Zambia worse at local level, dont make it national level. Sata is a big con for personal benefit as his counillors have proved. Zambians tukasebana if u let PF get state house too. Many more peole will leave while others planning to come back will stay away or go elsewhere. Dont lie to people, there’s nothing you can offer as we’ve seen with the counils.

  15. The dirt in on the Copperbelt and Lusaka is a government ploy. All city councils controlled by PF are either underfunded, not funded or maliciously suspended. The blame must be directed at RB and Chituwo. Regardless, why am I wasting my energy? After all residents of these two provinces are smarter than RB and Chituwo. They all know why their places are like the way they are now. They know that Sata did it once and he can do it again.

  16. #21 well nailed Mr i was going to write that.Same as the UK all labour councils are being asked to cut down on spending while tory councils are spending millions on their council Leaders. RB= C’NT

  17. Why so much dirt? how can some one think properly when their is so much gabage? I still don’t understand how gabage collection can be a difficult thing to do. All one needs is a tipper or any other truck that can hold the trash and some kaponyas to load thus more money in their pokets. If you don’t want to use labour then a loader will do. It is such a simple thing.
