    • Yes, Nawakwi was the best. She outsmarted all of them. Elias was second best and Nevers Mumba came the third, mainly due to his excellent stance on foreign relations. HH was usual pompous and self-praise. He was distant 4th. Laura Miti and the lady from Radio Hot FM were unanimous in declaring Edith as the winner followed by Elias and Nevers as the best in articulating issues facing the nation.

  1. Just look at the names! They would be PFoolish cadres, wouldn’t they? What national duties is Mwaliteta performing when he is Vodka Lungu’s tail right now?
