    • You are a black sheep of your family. have respect for elderly people. GBM has done his part for the people of Zambia. Look at the number of people he has employed including donations. You f.cker has not donated anything and the only thing you can do is either be a blood donor or sperm donor. Get a life.

  2. Pic# 2 – The Firefighters in Lusaka have no water to fight fires and yet they are throwing water away on a plane. If its a celebration throw confetti on the dam.n thing instead of precious water!

    That Cheetah awe sure! A wild animal is a wild animal.

    • @Nubian Princess,
      That’s a good advice, ‘a wild animal is a wild animal’. We have seen on several occasions handlers of such animals being brutally mauled to death. Is it worth the risk?

    • A cheetah is a small cat, it not as big as lion or leopard (panthera ` cats`) cant kill a human being unless its the baby,,, you can actually scare away cheetah in wild… a cheetah is perfect wild cat to tame.. so worry people.

      And what kind of africans are you who have no knowledge of your african wildlife?

  5. Photo 20 – teaching students at Chipata College of Education sharing single chairs and some using their laps as desks and our gov’t is busy boasting about building one university in each province when the existing infrastructure has been neglected….misplaced priorities indeed.

  7. Dear fellow Zambians,

    Where is our pride as a nation when even government ministers feel no shame in launching other airlines from other countries’ flights into our own sovereign state?

    Surely, we are completely incapable to run even a small airline that we can call a flag carrier? Even poor countries that just grow cash crops like coffee, tea, tobacco are way ahead of us.

    Madam Masebo, food for though if at all your conscious is alive to the dreams and aspirations of the Zambian people and if you call yourself a Tourism minister worth her her salt.

    Shame, shame, nicha nsoni bane. Sometimes I feel like changing my nationality mwe.

  8. I commend the management and staff of Big 5 Mukuni for bringing a living Cheetah to Linda highschool of livingstone. It gives our young nationals practical learning. no matter how dangerous of a predator a cheetah is. The handlers am sure carry tranqulizers and Teazers to subdue the animal, if at all it went baulistic.

    Picture # 4, I thought the Cheetah ni chi kadoli, like ndobo, jay jay, Saulosi nebashala. How do I know you guys are real people. We are on lusaka times like we are related. I eve miss you guys :). Even you Nubian princess and your woman defending ways :).

    Behave yourself and stop being a spoiled crybaby….what do you need a national airline for??? Proflight is one such small Zambian airline ask GRZ to stick our flag on their tail if it makes you feel better.You don’t have a clue whatsoever about what it entails to run an airline company.
    Wake up!!

    • I’m around, bro. Just keeping a low profile…

      People seem to forget that a Cheetah is a wild animal. To stroke a wild animal is pure recklessness and not bravery!

  12. Pics# 24 & 25 shows why zambia is a poor failed state.We’re to quick to cut corners and not put good effort and discipline into whatever we do.You can actually see this trait in pics 21-23 with structures built and maintained half decently with no finesse,refinement or attention to detail.

    • Spot on. Lack of consistency is a big drawback. At this pace of development, we might take another 50 years to reach the stage Europe, America and Asia has now reached. Our friends will probably be biulding galactic cities in space by then…

  13. Pic – 10. My Laptop shook just watching GBM run. But if GBM wants to be cool and break new grounds, he should consider including a cheetah in future races, with a caption:- “ As Quick As A Cheetah – in Mental speed”
