  1. MUNKOMBWE and CHIKWANDA look very tired and finished..why cant they resign and pave way for young fresh men and women to take over..awe sure!

    • The Idea of construction of Universities should STOP

      The trouble is , this government and many before them, think a legacy is more enhanced by erecting an infrastructure than repairing the depleted ones

      This is shallow thinking and the way the majority including the president’s mode of thinking

      A lot of Secondary schools and Primary schools are jokes, UNZA is crippled with its problems

      Anyone ever gone back to their old school and looked at it, and wondered how dirty dilapidated and sad the building looks?

      PF I demand you take my words into your mode of thinking

      Thanks

    • Hooligans and politicians.

      Pic#15 – Mrs GBM’s hairline is receding faster that her husband’s belly fat. I guess money doesn’t buy you good looks after all!

  2. Lovely pictures from Makasa university.LT you should show us how things are moving at Paul Mushindo university too.Wanna know how far the Mushindo construction has gone.Looks like GBM is enjoying his ahaha moment in the media.

  3. Development is being seen in muchinga. How about the rest of us Zambians? All we hear are promises! Even nkomeshya complained about this. U promised lewanika university but therz nothing not even a foundation stone!
    Mr sata, we did not vote for u to develop muchinga alone. HH is vindicated, we will vote 4 him bcoz u sir only think of your own people in muchinga.

    • Development only in Muchinga Province. How about other provinces? I understand 2 universities being constructed in Muchinga alone! What can we call this?

    • why are you complaining about that when people who hail from there and other adjoining provinces (northern, Luapula etc) constitute 45% of the total population of the country?

  4. @ Mushota. How do you suggest that the Government deals with the demand by over 1.63 million youths for tertiary education? By renovating UNZA and CBU? There is urgent need for new infrastructure as well as maintaing the current schools, colleges and universities. It’s not about legacy!

  5. In my opinion the following provinces need universities more dearly than having two in one district and these are :Southern Province ,Eastern Province, & northwestern province.
    Development should be taken to all parts of Zambia for all to feel part and parcel of this great nation otherwise others see it as an attempt to educate a certain tribal grouping at the expense of others which in itself is very devisive.
    Whoever the master planner of these facilities is should look at the bigger picture.

  6. Pics 5, 6, 7&8,
    Swearing in rituals are back with a bang, we missed them so much during the ’14-day working holiday in London’.
    Pic 14, Puddles of dirty rain water are still Lusaka’s common sight.

  7. @ analyst. SOUTHERN HAS ONE Already. We just need a GOVT UNIVERSITY to make it 2 University.
    Let Govt open one in LIVINGSTONE.
    WE have Rusangu University already Running.

    @ Mushota dont b JEALOUS, on UNIVERSITIES PF seem to b doing Good……THUMBs guys ba PF. We need to ve these UNIVERSITIES BUT “TOO MANY OF THEM”.
    Munkombwe & Chikwanda u r finished- Rest.

  8. Why not build that infrastructure at UNZA and CBU and make them first class universities on the continent and put an end to accommodation crisis.

  9. The newly constructed University should be accessible by people who are disabled. Meaning they should have elevators and walk ways where a wheel chair can pass. Good work. Next constuct universities in all provinces.

  10. viva gbm…there are so shaken such that they dont even know what to do. foolishly they bring up a case which they had closed. any sensible person would be able to know that it is politically motivated injustice.

  11. IF YOU SEE THAT DEVELOPMENT IS ONLY GOING TO MUCHINGA IT IS BETTER YOU AND YOUR FAMILY SHIFT TO MUCHINGA. BECAUSE HERE IN ZAMBIA YOU CAN STAY IN ANY PROVINCE OF YOUR CHOICE WITHOUT A VISA.STOP MAKING NOISE ABOUT MUCHINGA BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE THERE AND THEY ARE ALSO INTILED FOR DEVELOPMENT. ME I WAS STAYING IN MONGU I HAD TO SHIFT WITH MY FAMILY TO LUSAKA AFTER I SAW THAT THERE WAS NO DEVELOPMENT TAKING PLACE IN MONGU.NO ONE ASKED ME TO SAY WHY ARE YOU HERE IN LUSAKA BECAUSE YOU ARE A LOZI AND YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE STAYING IN MONGU ONLY . SO NEXT YEAR IAM SHIFTING TO MUCHINGA WHERE I HAVE HEARD THAT THERE IS TOO MUCH DEVELOPMENT THAN ANY PART OF THE COUNTRY, SO THAT I CAN ENJOY.IAM JUST GOING TO USE MY NRC TO SETTLE THERE AND NOTHING ELSE.

  12. SAMSUNG let’s be serious do you honestly need a Field Engineer to check the authenticity of a phone….a 12 year old kid can do that…just checking the IMEI number and you can get the answer simple as that.

  13. Ali simwinga is finished and Sata now sends him to Egypt so he can come back in a coffin. A total worst of Zambia’s tax money. Ali should be in kitwe nursing his health not what he is engaging himself in. We need young and productive Zambians to represent our beloved country. Retard appointing retard. Its not gonna last. HH for good….

  14. Why some people are demanding the PRESIDENTS holiday pictures? This is un african so you want to SEE him at a beach with only ka swimming costume kutimuone KATUNDU? The white people do that, but us we dont , have you ever seen your parents doing that? so keep quite

  15. Picture 15 GBM has now lost weight
    maybe he can even be able to contest for 2015 presidential by-elections. Prophesied by TB Joshua.
