  1. Pic 2-That should serve as a warning to Mumba that he still has a lot of things to change on the ground…it is quite embarrassing actually.Those youths too can do something better than drinking shake shake in the morning.Pic 7 the government should make sure that all measures are put into place to control those worms otherwise we risk having widespread famine come next if this issue is not solved.

  2. Pics 1/2. Politics yamu maliketi. Why go there when you know you’re very unpopular.

    Pic 8. PF govt should sort out the shortages of mealie meal. Why shortages when we had a bumper harvest? These ‘re signs of a failing govt.

    Zone 6 pic. Great pics!

  3. mmmmm aya ma pictures aya for the Zone VI games ……but Zed pa waamaa.I earnestly pray and hope that PF won’t spoil the little gains we have made so far. Siba oneka steady ba chimbwi aba.

  4. The Zambian Ambassador to Italy is the one who should have been attached to the Vatican and not Nkunika who is based overseas from the Vatican. Reason is indeed a rare commodity in PF. And now that Christine has had a tour of TAZAMA facilities, we would like to know when her report to Parliament or the Cabinet!

    • @Rasta; you dont continue doing the wrong thing simply because that’s what you’ve always done! That’s why people elect new governments so that the wrongs are righted. It is more convienient and cheaper for an Ambassador based in Rome to deal with Vatican relations. Your myopia just confirms why Zambia is in a static mode because you lot dont believe in self improvement or progress. You are forever doubling up on the wrong stuff you’ve been doing since 1964! Shame!

    • I am equally puzzled by this arrangement … Ala kwaliba ubukopo muchalo chesu. Vatican is in Rome … Even if they claim to be somewhere else.

  5. Pic #7, The army worms could be a plague on the country.
    Pic #8, Yes, the dreaded UNIP days are back with a vengeance, unexplained shortages of Zambia’s staple food.

  6. Dr. Christine Kaseba needs to lose weight. She has already had one health scare. Next time she may not be as lucky. Mind you, this applies to a lot of our leaders. Kambwili at the on-going games is not a good advert for Zambian health.

  7. @Picture 22. The girls look like boys. Are you sure ba LT these are women playing basketball?
    Definitely wrong caption! Not Angola and Zambia women’s basketball teams but Mozambique and Fimofimo men’s basketball teams. Report properly ba LT!

  8. Whites dominates swimming.. can’t Zambia find some swimmers from those lakes? You don’t need to speak English to swim. Or is it fear that kuti balamfya amenshi?

  9. The first Lady is really enjoying the taxpayers monies.She seems to be travelling every week.what was the purpose for touring the TAZAMA pipeline? You should stay home our people are suffering-army worms,mealie meal shortages,somalians shooting us,opposition leaders arrested for visiting a chief to name but a few.

  10. How can a black man swim?
    LT that is Photoshop , whites swim, Black men cant swim
    I am tired of seeing things I shouldn’t 

    Thanks

  11. Pic #1- surely if I were Mumba, I’d not go to the market after coming out of jail. He should’ve gone straight home to wash his stinky azz. Even touching food like that? Eeyyyeeeuuu!
    Ok, ba Kaseba but I must admit it, lose some weight kwena pics # 3,4,5 and 6. Not looking healthy at all mami!
    Pic# 8, bruce lee tampopele, careful. That’s 125 kilos on that fools’ head. The Nkunikas…hmmm, NO COMMENT!
    Ba LT

    22 ?? Finshi mu pepa imwe guys? Those are men not women ba swine imwe.

  13. Mushota, what do black people do instead? I thought they do swim but they are yet to be lucky in the sport. I’m curious to know the source of your apathy against we blacks. It seems we are such a pain in your ass, aren’t we?

  14. Nostradamus is pureley a failed lecturer. One who doesnt know the difference between Incriminate and crimate, One who does’nt know whta road furniture is, Shocking and all he can do is condemn Zambia stupidly.

    Am in Australia as a mechanic and even here which is a world leading nation with smimmers only third to China and the USA no one is sent to swim in crocodile infested rivers. Cna the fool nostradamus say which lakes he proposes. Shame to his wife and children if he is even married or farthered any kids. Please forgive my typos but am good at fixing things.
    Thanks Extremely high paying too here

  15. Why is Lt. Col. Nkunika, who is Zambia’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, presenting his credentials to Pope? Is the Pope running the UK now?

  16. @24, oranje91:

    Baba, it is standard practice that in order to cut down on govt expenditure, there are certain “countries” not worth posting an exclusive Commissioner per ser. The Vatican has a very limited # of Zambians living their or do Zambia have huge economic, social, or other interests to warrant a commissioner specifically for the Vatican.

    There are actually other Zambian Commissioners/Ambassaders overseeing more than one Zambian mission. You would have made sense if U complained about why the Zambian Ambassader to Italy (if we have one) couldn’t oversee the Vatican mission too. But I am not familiar with the protocols at the moment to tell you why, but I am sure there is a good reason why Nkunika is the man.

    So, leka ubufi and stop displaying your ignorance in public!

    • The Vatican State came into existence in 1929 after the signing of the Lateral Treaties between the Italian State and the Papal States. This followed centuries of civil war. In the Lateral Treaties, it was agreed that Italy and the Vatican would never share their diplomatic Representatives. Meaning that no Diplomatic envoy from a sending country to the State of Italy can also be an Envoy to the Holy See. It’s up to each country to determine whether to open a Mission to the Vatican to extra accredit one of it’s other Missions nearby.

    • Thanks @Informer. There you have it @oranje91!!!

      There is always a reason why things are done the way they are done. It is wise sometimes to politely ask when you do not know certain things!

  17. has LT. Col. Nkunika been moved to Nigeria because of this. the guy who was in Nigeria has been swapped with Nkunika. ba sata nichani ma moves ya so kanshi
