24 COMMENTS

    • They forgot offering part.
      Who will be master of ceremony, I hope it is Mwansa Kapeya, since Edgar Lungu decided to call himself VIP.
      Remember Mandela’s funeral Ramaphosa hosted, but Zambians all want to be on “ARRIVALS”.

    • Well done, No speeches from Mugabe??
      To Save Public Funds let Guy Scott continue until 2016. we dont need the Presidential By-Election.

    • I have no problem with HH being the next president. The trouble is the vultures he has surrounded himself with. Sorry maningi!

      Since he is spineless, it’s gonna be Christmas everyday.

  1. “There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die”. Rest in eternal peace Mr. President.

    • It must be a long boring day for Lusakaians” today… i hope you stashed enough marijuana “DAGGA” to smoke today in honor of King Cobra!!

  2. That’s all Sata wanted. to be buried at Embassy park. This park should have been a park for all Zambians since there’s no park in Lusaka town center.now it is for the dead. Sata divided the nation and only took development to Muchingas and now everyone is singing songs to him that he was this bla bla bla.

  3. He was a great leader I will miss him so much, he never gave up until he won the presidency, have felt the impact of how he was now may he always be remembered. Till we meet again on the side were God has prepared a good place for us all.

  4. Why doesn’t everyone arrive at the same time in Higer Buses….
    we can save a lot of time, traffic,fuel,resources….

    No wonder we don’t develop.
    period.

  5. God will only prepare a good place for those remembered Him here on earth, do good deeds and keep to what God asked us to do and abstain from what he asked not to do. The late President is not a saint just like any of us. We have all sinned. Whatever shortcomings he had during his lifetime, may God forgive him. Adieu a Great man!

  6. Lets mourn our president in peace.if pf continue fighting, then their campaign activities will be pertubed giving room to opposition.wy is that Edigar Lungu fearing convetion.Let him attest his popularity there!

  7. Advice to citizens, how to identify bad and corrupt leaders in a sea of candidates.

    1. those who are proposed or supported by the Post – danger!
    2. Those who claim to have been mentored or inspired by the late – danger!
    3. Anything kabimba-ish – danger!

    If you follow these three simple rules you will have eliminated a lot of chaff and remain with a narrow field to choose from.

  8. This programme should have ended more than two hours ago but the speakers seem to be enjoying listening to themselves, except Edgar Lungu :-).
    Please spare a thought for our guests the foreign guests and other VIPs, they may need to go to the bathroom.

  9. I DON’T THINK THIS DEATH’S GONNA SINK INTO ZAMBIANS. SATA WAS OF COURSE NOT WELL BUT IT WASN’T EXPECTED THAT HE WAS GOING TO PASS ON DUE TO WHAT HE WAS DOING FOR ZAMBIA. I AM PERSONALLY FINDING IT VERY DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE UP TO THIS TIME. ANYWAY, HE HAS SET AND LEFT US STANDARDS. IT’S UP TO US ZAMBIANS TO FOLLOW.
