  1. THE SHOPPING MALLS AND MFEZs WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF URGLY BUILDINGS IN ZAMBIA, I AM PRETTY SURE. ARE THESE THE BUILDINGS OUR UNZA AND CBU GRADUATE CAN DESIGN AFTER 4 YEARS AT UNIVERSITY? IT’S A SHAME!

    WITH RIOTS- IT’S HUNGER THAT ISCAUSING ALL THESE. BA RB BANABA NDALAMA. MOST OF THESE WILL DISAPPEAR WITH DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECTS PF IS IMPLEMENTING

  2. is that the great east road bafikala? who is in state house?….poseniko amano guys Zambia has never experienced war since Independence

  3. Let’s cry for our maize we produce,block the boarders,if zambians were lazy we can’t even export a single bag.Let zambians enjoys the fruits it bears.

  4. Mr Salim, Kavulamungu, kesons ,isusyas, my regrets to you all for your terrible losses during the riots. it pains one when they are looted by uncivilized barbarians. These thieves and villagers always look for a chance to loot others. our laws are very weak, the govt must bring in stiffer penalties to deter similar occurance in the near future. The govt must compensate these businessmen for the heavy loss they have suffered .May all mighty god help them to recover from the trauma they have faced.aameen

  5. I could not agee more their should be compensated for the loss these babaric and out of jealousy should stop.the police should also investigate these crimes professionally and not what is heppening where they let barbaric acts to heppen.i only think its god who will delever us from all evils by citizens even after 48yrs plus of independence and the police should bring the real criminals to book.

  6. Poverty is really serious in Zed! Those people are helpless and have no hope whatsoever. Meanwhile the guy who was buying voted from them is busy enjoying life in Lusaka despite the immunity being striped. The Kavulamungu chaps are just reaping off those Katete villagers. I feel sorry for those people as they will end up in prison for expressing their hunger!

  7. Every time we came for inter-school games in Katete; I used to think it was the coldest place on the planet at the time due to those mountains. Little did I know that I was going to be experiencing harsh winters of -2*C in the future.
    Great East Road still looks the same old no difference yet its a trunk road!!

  8. This is a blow to Asian businesses who depend on the local populace to sell their merchandise. It will take a long time for Asian businesses to normalise in Katete because of the detention of about 50% of their clients. We pray that this fire does not spread to Chipata, Lundazi and Petauke – and hopely not along the line of rail. Peoples’ anger has been bottled for too long. Sata must change his attitude towards the people of Eastern Province as demonstrated by his harassment of the our leaders. Bad political policies can breed harvoc to the nation. PF leaders can ignore these sentiments at their own peril.

  9. ANNISA Iwe chimutu stop blogging your racial hatred on this L.T site. Grow up you under five. We Zambians should understand that Kavalamungu family has been operating business in Katete and Chipata since before our independence and the whole family are born Zambians, being jelous wont take you anywhere.

  10. Iwe Sangwapo, stop being jealous, if you have nothing better to comment than just drink kachasu and wee in your kabadula you under 5 from Chibolya primary .Zonda uza lema

  11. those people with long beards and round caps are always terrible. Why are they in Zambia, a christian nation?

  12. You racist blogging barbarians who has stopped you from being a commercial success?Some ma imbwa mu zed are lazy,jelous,still primordial & very hateful.Education and travel shoulda taught you that success got nothin to do with race or location but hard work,discipline and focus.Alas,you still have village mentality.

  13. This 15 century shops must be be demolished so that these indians and pakstanis can invest in new modern building. Way to go. These building make me sick in y stomach..

  14. …and yet these same looters will go to church on Sunday and proclaim what a wonderful guy god is.

    There’s so much lip service about god in Zambia, but the actions of the people couldn’t be any further from what Christ stood for. The sad thing is that religion has become such big business that every kaponya is now a pastor of sorts. Now people don’t even call themselves pastors; they are Apostles and Prophets now. All crooks!

  15. Telling the Indians to go home does not make sense, Zambia is home, no need to be racist, the dependency on the Indians is huge, Katete was closed for a couple of days & it was difficult to get basics including talktime. The riots were planned to loot, wednesday night a meeting was held & Police knew about it, why they became incapable, only God knows. Affluent marketeers. & residents were the thieves. Same peoplle who sing loudly at church on sunday.

  16. A big shame to the so called christian nation. The riots were well organised by the barbarians.they were out to loot. this was day light robbery.I know this Indians for years. some of them have been in katete for more than 60 years. they have been helping the local communities in many ways. they sponsor football teams and tournaments. they help the st francis hospital with food.blankets and other requirements. they are taking care of hundreds of oldmen, widows and orphans. tgey have dug wells and borholes in places where water was very scares.they were just made the scapegoat for the murder they can never commit. let us learn to stay in harmony. what type of christians are we. Ler our elders in churches preach about ending this hatred.they might have made mistakes as they are humans but…
