    • Why can’t they just switch roles and save Zambia from the disgrace we currently have at Plot 1?

    • Chi Engineer (Australia ) ichimutwe. What has the president done to you? The fact is that he won’t die until God says “ok”. You will die earlier than him. Time for you to repent. You economic refugee.

    • This woman has a wrong man as her husband. I wish she was somebody else’s wife. It’s a mismatch.

    • please you people leave the first lady alone,,,,,, she needs some very fresh air away from mwango katongo,,, mixing with leanered people with good manners ku UN

    • Iwe ANTI-ENGINEER, what do you mean by ‘Economic Refugee’? Is it a BLACK AFRICAN who sees an opportunity to better their financial situation by applying their academic and professional skills in a country where such skills are better remunerated than does their motherland? Or is it a Chinese or Indian contractor or Trader who runs away from competing with better companies in their own countries? If I come to a foreign country with my own start up capital for a business and get 1000% richer you call me an investor. What if I come in with my academic and professional skills and make millions, does that make me a refugee? Do you know of a Zambian chemist by the name Professor Chibale whose spearheading research in a malaria vaccine at the university of Cape Town? Is he too a refugee?

    • From the time Charlie Katos Sata got in the dock, BaMuka Yama Sata has lost 30 kilos.
      Plus nabalamba sana ba mayo aba, she can’t afford cocoa butter? Even Ba Emerlina Kabanshi bawaminamo.

  1. Utter waste of taxpayer’s funds this woman will do anything to keep away from the noisy old man in State House. ..don’t we have a Ministry of Health?

    • One thing you chaps forget is that I’m a health practitioner and a highly qualified one for that matter. So I got to these meetings not using the Zambian taxpayers money but organisers of these conferences fund my travels. Don’t you people have such conferences in your professions? Thanks

    • Jay Jay, if you have followed closely Dr Kaseba has exploited the privilege of being the lady in plot one to the maximum building her CV. From the time the husband occupied plot one she eclipsed the Minister of Health attending to all high profile professional world gatherings where the the head of the health ministry was supposed to be representing the nation! In comparison to the past wives on plot one in Mrs Christine Kaseba Sata we have a very selfish individual whose mission is bent on shaping her after state house life and smiling all the way about it that is using tax payers money that our legislators approved!

    • @Christine
      When are we going to rid ourselves with this outdated mindset…just because someone is a medical practitioner doesn’t make them the ideal persons to run a hospital. There are people who go to university to study such courses. It is a sheer waste of resources appointing doctors in these political positions from Minister to PS….look at the people they are talking to in those photos do you see a Doctor so and so.
      Wake up!!

  2. This report/photos is very progressive and informative. This is how a newspaper should work, to inform the public. It is inspiring also for our younger generation to get enticed and to work even harder in their school work.

    Why then do the ZWD in particular keep calling President Sata a “Dictator”? Wasn’t it the Zambian masses themselves who democratically chose him to become President? Even the UN, AU, etc., all congratulated him for his victory. Former President Banda congratulated him too and openly conceded defeat and evidence is there for all to see. Banda is still alive today – free and enjoying his freedoms, at least for now…

    Yes Sata may be ailing but, is it a crime to “ail”? He is only human and could succumb to certain body pressures/ailments and even die (God…

    • well it’s very simple: Mugabe was elected too! so was Morsi and Basha Al Assad, etc, etc, Need we say more??

  3. This girl Kaseba has taken over ministry of health attending all international functions on behalf of the minister if health who can not say anything for fear of being fired , she is all over the world wasting tax payers money when hospitals are in a very bad state the fact that you have no one to shag you at state house does not give you the right to abuse the state funds. Mps bring up this issue when your house opens this girls needs to learn to put her a.s.s down or go back to UTH. Nonsense!

  4. …God forbid). I am warning you Watch Dogs to stop this HATE campaign because your time will come too when you will vote or install HH, your idol; hopefully…

    • His time has come also, he mocked Levy about his illness, now it is his time busy flying to India for checkup’s and arresting people for killing a rabbit

  5. A Total waste of tax payers money.we have ambassadors/min of health officials to carry out this tasks. Just a shopping trip i presume ……..Thanks

  6. We have a Minister of Health. This woman has no role in our government except to keep Charlie Katongo’s bed warm.

    • You are very dull. How dare you even bring your dullness here. Who tells you that only ministers attend such meetings. She is a medical doctor and she should attend such meetings. That is a health practitioners conference and she is one of them. She needs to keep attending such to keep abreast with the trends in health issues. You want her to just sit at home when she has a career? Useless human being you are Concalves!

    • picture number 6,7 and 12. Kasonde is shown in a blue suit. that is the minister of health right there.

  7. It is now evident that the irrelevant Dr Kasonde has been completely obliterated from the minister of health portfolio. Under normal circumstances you would expect him to represent Zambia at the World Health Assembly not this woman.

    • And you can’t see Dr. Kasonda (Health Minister) in the pics???

      Do you also wonder what Melinda Gates was doing at this conference instead of the Cabinet Secretary responsible for health matters in the USA?

      I think some of this complaining and moaning about non-issues is simply a Zambian trait, really!

  8. Truly Christine can do better / or she would do well to look after the husband. It does not make sense for her to be gallivanting when the husband is damn sick in state house. The love of money and status…that is how the devil works.

  9. Question: Would Vera or Thandiwe been able to deliver a keynote address at such a high profile event? Haters will always hate! We as a nation will benefit from her rubbing shoulders with the likes of Melinda Gates.

    • That’s the reason why we have a minister of health, who is allocated a budget for these trips ….this woman is merely polishing up her CV using your sweat your hard-earned PAYE. We all know what Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is doing in Africa, if she wants to promote Zambia she can do more at State House by persuading her frail husband to promote good governance and leadership instead of pointless facebook updates.
      Wake up!!

  10. haters will ever remain haters, let my mum do her work, as long as she is doing the write thing let us support her…….opposing even when things are alright…sorry guys….we are behind you mum.

  11. ” Without Prejudice” The first Ladies rated as follows:
    1. Vera ingwe Chiluba
    2. Betty Banda Kaunda
    3. Dr. Christine Kaseba Sata
    4.Dr. Maureen Kakubo Mwannawasa
    5. Tandiwe Banda
    6.Regina “Mwanza’ Chiluba

    • Regina mwanza was not a first lady of Zambia.she got married when FTJ was out of his presidency.therefore she can not be referred as first lady

  12. @ 14 & 15,
    First of all it looks like you are one and the same person.
    I think you have missed the point, it is not about the ‘ability to deliver a key-note address’ or ‘doing her work’ (in fact this is not her work but Dr Kasonde’s).
    How would you @ 14 & 15 feel if your official duties and role are usurped by someone else behind your back?
    It’s only in Zambia otherwise in many parts of the world Dr Kaonde should have opted to resign. He is being humiliated so badly.

    • Come on London Eye, your Dr Kasonde was NOT invited to give the key note speech. Give credit where it is due.

    • @ Kavundula,
      I very much appreciate your comment but hasn’t it surprised you then that the organisers of all these workshops only ‘invite’ your Dr Kaseba in preference to Dr Kasonde? I emphasize, this only happens in Zambia and we know why.

    • She does not force herself to deliver a keynote address. The organisers decide who should give a keynote. Don’t just condemn for the sake of condemning. Dr. Kaseba is a medical doctor and a highly trained one for that matter. So when the WHO want her to deliver a keynote address on matters that she is well acquainted, who is she to refuse.
      Don’t just condemn things because you hate Sata and so whatever and whoever is connected to Sata is therefor wrong.

    • One Masumba
      If she is such a good doctor why is she not volunteering at UTH and where was she when the nurses were being laid off by her husband for merely requesting an increment….I’m sure she understands the role their profession plays in the medical sector.

  13. As far as I can tell, this was a constructive meeting and tour. She is a qualified doctor and gave the key note address. Nothing wrong with that. The entourage also seemed to consist of the right mix of people who should have accompanied her on this trip.

  14. Just wasting our tax monies on useless trips.She must just come back and look after ka Sata lassa lassa testicles.

  15. Can you haters of Dr Kaseba tell us what your spouses have done for mother Zambia? Why can’t we appreciate good deeds. Some Zambians are so jealous of other people’s successes. MC Wabwino calls it PHD. (pull him/her down) I would love to see HH’s wife’s C.V. as well please.

    • @Judy:

      You are probably asking for too much to expect Zambian men to respect a SUCCESSFUL WOMAN like Dr. Kaseba. Most Zambian men (especially haters), believe a woman’s place is the Kitchen and childbearing only!

      Judy, all you have to do is look in the archives and see what the leaders these people believe in said about women. Do you remember HH’s comments about Edith Nawakwi? Well, that should tell you the warped psych of these people. To them, an educated and successful female is simply an eye-sole! They just can’t fathom a Zambian first lady being this high profile as to be invited to these world gatherings. To them a Zambian first lady is only fit to cook, do laundry, and parade herself in front of State House to welcome guests—not a woman of substance like Doc. Kaseba.

  16. The only good thing about this Presidency is the First Lady. She’s not an embarrassment for sure.

  17. Most of our first ladies have had one cause or another. Vera Chiluba had HOPE Foundation, Maureen Mwanawasa had MMCI and now Dr.Kaseba is a crusader in her own right. Personaly I have nothing against or for her. Its her time others will have theirs.

  18. Ba Jay Jay na London Eye ubututu! You clearly have never attended such events. Besides the technocrats you will always have highly placed dignitaries. We see a lot of wives of politicians attending these functions as sign that their governments are in support of these international efforts. There are separate breakout sessions for the likes of Kasonde.

  19. I have taken time to read most of the comments on this page, I think most of the people here are abusing the service by posting nonsense only because your Identities are anonymous. I think lets have constructive criticism and think before you post your rhetoric. In this time and age why should we insult our leaders, fathers and mothers? I can’t believe some of you even go as far as thinking you can have the audacity to make comparisons of sexual performance as you claim to be youthful. I wonder how rotten your heads are because the first lady probably is old as your mother or perhaps you think so ill of your mothers at home? shame on you! if you don’t have manners or respect were you come from please this is not the best place to post your nonsensitive comments.
    Try to be more…

  20. you numbnuts can hate if you so please.And for the record,Melinda gates is giving me a fat cheque for you to hate more.Talking of home,how’s my hubby doin back home.?Anyway,hope his taking his vitamins.
