  1. These ldiots are a bunch of morons. One talks about engaging the CIA to gag the media (online) while the other craps about taking the AIB to the AG for clearance.

      As evidently you consider yourself a member of ruling intelligentsia, can you please clarify:

      1. Government position on “engaging” CIA to “gag” online forum dealing with Zambian internal issues?

      2. After reading recent interview given by current Acting AG, I am concern that he may just be “proof” reading the Bill for spelling mistakes and not going into “legalities” of compatibility with the Constitutional provisions.

      Your civilized and learned comment will be highly appreciated.

  4. Chumbumunsholwa the office of the AG known as AG chambers does not stop functioning because one person has been fired. There are many lawyers that work there and give opinion. At the moment the Solicter General is acting as AG.
