  1. PIC#12 The poor thing lies prostrate before the King of the land. What a tradition! In the 21st century it look odd to carry on. Try wearing some loin cloth too- it is tradition. Why bother wearing a suit! My God, the people are suffering, seeing electricity 47 years after independence and just before elections!!! Very convenient!

    • can you imagine? its ridiculous. we should be much further down the development line than people getting electricity for the first time…sad!

  2. Pic 12-Ati ba mayo nabaya mukumona ba president kanshi balekunkula panshi.Wonder when this nonsense will end.Bet all she got at the end of the day is a pack of shake shake and chitenge material.Poor cadres.

  3. With all this spotlight he is cherishing there is no way anyone can expect him to handover power whatever happens at the elections. When he was struggling on his farm in Chipata he never dreamt that one day he would be president.

  4. Gooooooo rb its your prerogative bambi bale minfye amate and building castles in the air, and even living in them ! chwee, chweee, chweee!

  5. Chicken brains…..now that it? erection time, all people seem to forget that the same man has spent almost his all term up in the sky.

  6. Sata mwaume, he has put RB on auto-cruse, even if MMD give you 2 plate cookers and 2 band radio… just receive the presents BUT DON’T UKUBEBA!! Ni pa BWATOOOOOOO ….. MWAMUKOLOOOOO!

  7. Action speaks louder than words. This has never happened before in Zambia. There was just too much talk. For the 2 yrs you have been in power, you have done very well. My wish is that you remain for another 5 yrs to accelerate development. Well done BOSS.

  8. For the first time Zambia is seeing unprecedented levels of development. One wonders where the money is coming from all of a sudden!!!! Why did’nt we have this kind of development the moment Rupiah Banda came into power in 2008. This time we should have been more developed in terms of infrastructure. I can smell a rat anzanga here!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. RB has just been commissioning projects, we also want to see projects completed. the only projects which were completed are those which Levy initiated.

  10. AT LEAST A BREATH OF FRESH AIR FROM THE USUAL YAPPING OUR POLITICIANS ARE KNOWN FOR. LETS CONCENTRATE ON SERVICE PROVISION TO OUR PIPO.

  11. a radio and a two plate stove,this guy is a joke,even a student lyk myself can afford those things.poor old lady,wat can she do,eish

  12. Since he has been commissioning stuff after stuff, what is the unemployment rate in Zambia now? To prove that things are happening, gives us the numbers. Not even one job has been created.

  13. Pic 15..wow.the society house would be a bomb,,cant wait to c it in 2013. lets go RB lets go.u are the man with sustainable development in your palms,we have waited for long for our zambia to record such visible development,,our citiz should be flourish jst like other citiz from countriz like botswana,namibia and RSA. actually we need a national monument building not the findeco but somethn whch ll symbolize zambia..RB again,,nafuti nafuti.

  14. The level of desperation in the MMD camp is embarrassing. ont know why politicians think once elected to power then they gop on holiday. and this is not about rupiah alone, this is what all of them will do be it Sata, HH Milupi etc. they are all just a bunch of *****s.

  15. The unprecedented level of project initiation is because of the 7.1% GDP growth rate.Wait until we hit 8% GDP growth. Most of the projects will be completed in 3 years time. Mongu Kalabo in 5 years time because it is a 37km bridge in the swamps.

  16. Zikomo Mr president, if I look all the years back during elections people were only being given party printed chitenge material and were very happy and vote for the party distributing the materials. Unique pres. BANDA decided to use the money to develop the country rather than developing his farm. Hats off, thank you RB for the development

  17. # 15 kalos my brother your good question wont be answered because our politicians and leaders in Zambia dont really know how to calculate unemployment figures or poverty line numbers or they really dont care about that staff.

  18. The questions people are asking even those with half brains are ”is he using his own money, from where has the scares money saddnely come from?” Only retards from choma and chipata would fall for this.

  19. how does one justify free installation of solar gysers in mandevu only what about the rest of the country? will they do service freely when they are broken? and the money where is it coming from!

  20. Get the geyser, enjoy the power, chew the radio, chew the cooker, that’s your money and you know what to do: sssshhhhh DON’T KUBEBA.

  21. #21. I totally agree with you. Admittedly, I was not his biggest fan when he took over power. But now presisdent Banda is creating a legacy up and above the expectations of most of us. From these tangible development projects, the president is headed for the biggest accolade- the greatest president the country has seen in recent times. RB is not a vindictive person, but patient, mature and intellectual. Despite unjustified criticism to destract him by kapoyas ( you know who.. ) he carries on admirably with focus. He could have chosen lay back and wait for his retirement having earned a life pension. Instead he has decided to work and hand over a better Zambia to generations to come. Hat off indeed!

  22. Now he is dishing out two band radios and two plate cookers…. Hahaha this man is really crazy… Never seen Obama dishing out iPads to old ladies…. Lol… Mr. President when is the nation getting free laptops from Zampost or NAPSA?
