  1. Picture 19 says it all and thats exactly why we dont need an aging or ailing president. Energy needed in state house bwana!

    • @ Matac0 Yanjoka, you are very dull.The President is also human like you and can get tired. He is not a robot. do you think he’s the one who came with that chair? the people who organized the the celebration were wise enough to know that people might need to rest when they are tired.think b4 u comment

    • You will be lucky to reach his age; being old is no disease; only comes to those who are blessed. Old and tired he may be; but he has reached the pinnacle of his career; presidence of the republic of Zambia while you and me are “Makwere kwere” “bloody immigrants” as we are told day in and day out. where would you rather be?

  2. #1 You are right, for those of you who have been doubting the fitness of this man, there is a lot of evidence in picture 19 for you and pictures don’t lie. Clearly, this is at state house and for the president to be sitting on a funny uncomfortable chair is suspicious. It clearly shows the big man was not supposed to be sitting at that spot, but standing and mixing it out with others, but the big man got tired and somebody had to bring him a chair fastele fastele. Indeed we need a young man with energy at State House.

    How can a president be seated when everybody around him are standing and mixing it out. Let the rumour mill go in full swing. Thanks LT for great pictures

  3. You guys are so cheap Keen Observer and Matac0 Yanjoka, what is so so wrong with sitting down?
    Keen Observer, you live in the USA, are you not aware that Rooservelt was in a wheelchair but run that great nation from 1933 – 45 and triumphed during world war 2? Its not about physical strenght, its mental strenght and will power. Besides who never ever sits down?

    • Look at the chair first bwana, just at the middle of the lawn/garden. No other chairs around it, there is no other way it would have been brought there except in an ’emergency’ when the president felt dizzy. Akapuna!, akapuna! ba kakeka baumfwa ulunshingwa.

      Lets not pretend ,he was a heavy smoker and had a heart attack less than a year ago. Books and doctors say heart attacks have a tendency to reccur, unfortunately, and he is doing a good job to rest whenever he sees stars.

  4. Kwena muli fipuba mwe bantu imwe. When someone sits down, that sends a message that they are sick? You just lost elections ladies and gentlemen and no one is going to die until 2021. Wishiful thinking and also rotten heads.

    • And whats wrong with that?! Only Noah, yourself and other fools will lose it when drunk…not Sata and the likes of me!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Our dear beloved president is 74 years old, he spent his youth chain smoking and drinking whiskey heavily. We dont expect him to have the same phyical strenght as a younger man, but he has the mind capacity to run this nation. He soent the greater part of last year on rugged roads touring the country and campaigning. Long live Michael Sata!

  6. For someone to be fit to be President of Zambia, one must eat while standing, sleep while standing, pray while standing, use the toilet while standing, drive a car while standing, fly on a plane while standing. Unbelievable negativism!

    Sata is the President of the Republic of Zambia. He is President to those who are PF members, those of us who are not members of any political party, and those of you who are members of other political parties – the opposition.

  7. Stupid SENIOR CITIZEN and ITALIAN BUNGA fimofimo, MMD CHIEF BOOTLIKER, Where are you. Can you comet on that truck carrying bicycles. You thieves. Your party deserves Death and for sure it will never resurrect. Infact Sata should be tougher on you. He should engange ba shushu to sort you out so that you stop yapping and confusing people.

  8. Not a very good site if you are in opposition like Boot Fimo Fimo or Capitalist.

    Maestro Pwe pwe pwe must be very cross with that Seventh Day Adventist church.

  9. But why were these politicians uying so many bicycles per person? Well because of elections. Where did they get the money? Daft intellectuals. People are suffering while they keep stealing from them! Zambia. These politician side with foreigners at the expense of their fellow Zambians for some myopic gain, truly. Educated ministers, no wonder there is what they call educated but daft.

  10. Pic 10&11, That structure is not even fit for keeping in animals and you call it a church, where are the council building inspectors, in the 21st century people meeting in such a building as a church, surely God is not that poor to be worshipped in such a building.
    Shame on the council, its safer to meet under a tree than in that building and just the site of it makes me feel sad.

  11. The caption of Picture 7 says Sata and Zuma are at Vista University. Are you sure Vista University is still in existence? The campuses of the former Vista University were taken over by other universities following the merger of some SA universities a few years.

  12. All you PF supporters of this Gonger you put in state house, the issue is not about sitting. The issue is about sitting WHEN you are supposed to be standing and mixing it out.

    As we say in Nyanja ” Ku Nkala Pansi Kweve si Tilesa, Koma Ka Nkalidwe”. Nothing wrong with sitting down, but when one seats down matters and that is the issue.

    As usual PF cadres in denial

  13. So this is Ms. Elizabeth Kanjela up close!!
    Why do ZP female officers have these masculine type hats, they used to wear the smaller more feminine version not so long ago..

  14. No disrespect, but has ba Sata used jaribu in the past??? Just asking……because balemoneka kwati balikwatako ‘they came to stay’ ku face kwena

  15. pic 19. Look at the chair first bwana, just at the middle of the lawn/garden. No other chairs around it, there is no other way it would have been brought there except in an ’emergency’ when the president felt dizzy. Akapuna!, akapuna! ba kakeka baumfwa ulunshingwa.

    Lets not pretend ,he was a heavy smoker and had a heart attack less than a year ago. Books and doctors say heart attacks have a tendency to reccur, unfortunately, and he is doing a good job to rest whenever he sees stars.

    • There are people who had heart attacks in 1980 and are still alive up to now. You will die and the person you are talking about might just go on to live longer.

      Who knows!

  16. Dora, Dora, Dora Dora what happened to you, what happened to that attractive news reader? Look at you; you are just a big fat ass blop now like most Zambian women when they get a few bob $$$ in their purses. Zambian women look after your bodies the same way you attend to your heads with fake pricey hair.

  17. Dr Kaseba, learn to dress well please. why should you put of tropicals in a plane on duty , this woman is an embarrasment were dressing is concerned. some one needs to help her up. i hate her dress code as if she is not educated. walking on read carpet in siple sleepers. why didnt she but shoes at Kamwanala at 10 pin. please can some one help this woman improve her dress code. for sure its not good at all. am not being political but its embarassing to drees like that on duty. the chitenge suit was okay but the sleepers are for dual people and not a doctor that she is. please look at other high profile dress code like Masebo, Tandiwe,even old fera Nakatindi dresses well than this Kaseba thing. please save as embarasment at the airports mmm ala

  18. #27 Matac0 Yanjoka,
    Your observation and analysis cannot be ignored, it’s logical and makes sense. A simple looking chair at some isolated spot for the president? Unfortunately #27 I missed the point which you wrote in vernacular ‘Akapuna..etc…,’ I don’t understand/know this particular language, must be very interesting.

    • Thanks, thats bemba. in nyanja, the second language, it would read like ‘kampando!, kampando!, buluzi amvela chizwe-zwe, aona nyenyezi’

  19. No.29, Leave the first lady alone…she’s well educated, professional, comfortable and at ease with who she is.. I’m sure dressing to please narrow minds like yours is not one of her priorities! By the way, what she’s wearing are slippers, not sleepers. Peace:-] 

  20. PF haters or should l say under5 blind followers alimwi its bearly 3 months and your hatred for our president has reached boiling point ( stroke and heart attack risk levels ) HE MCS has a full 5 years to govern,, please reserve some of you hatred for later or l fear for you.. PF is in power till 2031 ,, spare some of that pain for your siblings please, this hatred will make you infertile and you shall chase more of us tonga women into the arms of these bemba dons–LET US LOOK AT THE PHOTOS OF THE SDA SHACK AND FIND WAYS OF HELPING TO BUILD OUR FELLOOW EDUCATED TONGAS A BETTER CHURCH NOT THAT SHACK hh help please HH ndakomba kondi gwash

  21. Where is Ndandula siamana? I miss that beautiful police spokes person. The chinese ambassador looking at the British high commisioners thinking” we got this copper money now.”
    hahahaha.

  22. Iam so disappointed to hear Zambians pass such very sad coments about our president. Fellow zambians remember aouthority comes from above. Sata has been placed to rule us by the lord. and whether we like it or not he will reighn until the lord removes him. the best we can do is pray for his health pray thath the lord gives him wisdom to lead the Zambians (Gods people) well. and pray that all zambians will learn to love each other then all things like corruption ect,ect will end. I challenge all Beliievers to take it upon ourselves to prayagainist this spirit of hatred. Ilove you all Zambians. and I love u bakateka.GOD BLESS ZAMBIA.

  23. BUSHE, NIKA MOSI MUMINWE BA PRESIDENT?? THIS IS WHY HE SAT DOWN???. BA MUDALA KUTUNGAFYE KA MOSI CHILIFYE TWASHIBA MULANDONSA. Let me come to be your assistant on private affairs, I WILL INTRODUCE YOU TO HEINIKEN

  24. Kaseba should go for cat walk training. She walks like a villager from a maize field. Sata is paying for heavy whiskey drinking and smoking in his youth, now good things have come and he has no strength. Kanjela belongs to Dr Malama IG of police.

  25. Ndandula Siyamana was the bomb, very natural….I know Kanjela, her apparent beauty in photos is because of Mafuta…jaribu! @ Zeus and Italian Bunga bunga…very bad taste in women, come for lessons!!
