  1. instead of going to God through prayer, they are going to TB Joshua for miracles. They are following a cult, not Christ.

  2. 2010 up to now,even though nangu ni investigation.that 750 is rebased or what.
    so if the lady was dead it means even the invetigation could have died a natural death.
    ba acc please you need to be quick in your actions,you are full shit.ba swine.

    • Kutumpa uku imwe Ba Edward. Anybody can think better than you tried to think, because what you are thinking EVERYBODY knows.

  3. The town clerk committed the office in 2010 and the agency arrest some in 2014, were they asleep all this time please. I know a wrong is a wrong and should be collected but what I am trying to put forward is people are employed and paid to do work every month. Its not fair to wait for so long most of the cases go an detected for this reason. Any way let us wait and see. the witnesses may be long gone.

  4. ya! we will see who eat cash btn ourselves and you chikoti ,you shout in bemba too much you think council is yours,what goes around comes around.Celebration time gentle men….
