    • Its follow the leader!!
      Sata declared 7 guns as his assets during presidential nominations.
      HH declared stocks in companies and thousands, if not million now of heads of cattle.

    • Nostrasomething, don’t you have anything else to say apart from Sata? You are really troubled my friend. You need medication, seriously so because you have gone bananas over Sata.

  1. Things people do in the name of love ! Ala ngabakukana kusuminafye not even going to the extent of taking another persons life.Sad

  2. Gunam style.Crime of compassion.Need to get a gun also but not for killing over a ?@%ach.Need a gun for bankongole .Would scare them into paying back their debt.

  3. Wrong target. Next time shoot the woman, turn the barrel of the gun towards yourself and pull the triger again. The two of you can go and enjoy in hell. We shall bury you and write (MYSRIP)-May Your Souls Rise If Possible. KEKEKEKEKEKEKE


    • this statement sounds so funny and silly at the same time! maybe bcoz im a wman. anyway, no need for guns. no need for shooting, nga bakukana find another one and life goes on!

  5. Ngabakukana,kwikalafyeeee nangu wafwayako umbi.This girl loved the taxi driver and i see nothing wrong with that.Cage the chaps!!

  6. This police-men sure.. you have two pipo one fire the shot and othe other is the witness..but u still looking for the owner of the gun… before we know the docket will dispppear. The police need to just check if the gun is a lisenced gun owner..Ask Obama is doing this gun control may be he can assist…

  7. I hope it is not these ugly girls whose front cannot be distinguished from the back. Now the ***** with the gun will have more time behind bars as the girl enjoys her time with other men.

  8. i think Kitwe should be declared “a city of love ” i gotta a girl from Kitwe she’s hot and very beautiful.And if any one coulda try bonk her away from me i swear i could definitely do the same, but not monga uyo mwana wapofu me i coulda shoot ku joni olo ku musulafye

  9. Monitoring is best done when you have a couple of data to compare. A lot of blood pressure monitors have huge memory banks storing about 80 or more readings. If you’re going to buy a blood pressure monitor that’s so hard to use then might as well stick with sphygmomanometer and stethoscope.
