    • Hire and Fire….ifintu ni Lungu, meanwhile the free fall of the kwacha continues….economy has no direction……

    • Let the man sort out his house and we shall judge them all on performance and delivery.
      So far Lungu is on cue although a couple of concerns along the way. In particular Kambwili at Information and Broadcasting (although he seems to be behaving), Expelling of GBM and Masebo (bad move at a time of failing economy – should have told them to find themselves new party in time for 2016 and get some new faces campaigning).
      Other than that, he is on track and we await to see economic policies.

    • Hiring & firing, hiring & firing, hiring &…When are you going to sit down and actually start working?? Come 2016, you’ll have nothing to show to the electorates and it will be their turn to fire you!

    • Fix the economy not busy changing name of villages to towns and firing your follow bandits. The Kwacha is weak not a single bandit in your government ever cares . Why are you busying borrowing money on behalf of Zimbabwe were Zambians we can’t even fund ourselves .

    • @Nostra. He is a coward, insecure and Councillor type of material that can have time to play pool while the economy falls apart and violence increases.

    • President Dental Formula, awe nalilafye Kachasu. Rainbow Party, Strength And Vision For The Taxpayers. 2016 here we come.

    • OPPOSITION UPND President Hakainde Hichilema is allegedly to have spent a night with former First Lady Maureen Mwanawasa whom reports say is having a secret sexual relationship with moments after appearing for questioning at Woodlands Police station on Wednesday.According to media reports, immediately after appearing before police at Woodlands Police for questioning were he became deaf and dumb Hichilema went to his home and later drove off to join his girlfriend at Golden Bridge Hotel along Great East Road, as he left his house he carried his usual entourage but as they drove half way, 3 other cars carrying his caders were excused and asked to wait for him at his old Kabulonga residence,

      Hichilema arrived at Golden Bridge Hotel, a White Toyota Hilux Registration ALZ 9361 and…

    • Appointing and disappointing staff from 1 to 30, that is all that is being done now. Now news at all, but predictable stuff which wont improve the lives of common men and women on the streets.

    • Can Dora Siliya now justify her claims for PF continuity. I had thought Dora reasons but she is just a wind-follower. She should have stated other reasons otherwise how can she be vindictated now with all these appointments, terminations and transfers?

  1. Holy lord that Edgar… even Igutu Suba, Mr. Sata’s Ex??
    And why he didn’t fire the drunk new deputy finance minister we watched at ZWD?

    • @Nostradamus
      iwe! ine shocked, my anuntie shuba, side plate for your late uncle,,, shuwa! she is terminated then fired!,,, maybe beacause she refused to drink with president lungu…

    • @Nostra
      please the new deputy finance is my friend,,, didnt you hear my voice in the back ground asking to be served a beer??… he is our friend please spare him for now

    • @Ndobo, you know I don’t sing like Mvunga or Lungu, if there is music I just dance, but not your new friends, ati ba minister…. Ndobo better just keep to our crew, abenena Lubinda. GBM has shifted intemba, joining the sober SDA.

  2. EL terminating and transferring civil servants; he is now consulting his debtor, the former president Banda on who he should pick, Sata is turning in his grave…in all honesty why should dull politicians handpick people for these positions.
    Meanwhile he still continues to cling on to the Defence position.

    • Wondering too. Maybe there’s no one suitable for that ministry. How is he running it? From plot one? Files go there everyday?

    • Let Sata continue turning in his grave, he was Zambia’s worst President and left deadwood in key positions.

    • He is targeting Mr Sata’s friends. Fire them but remember Sata is watching through the RAINBOW PARTY, VOTE FOR RAINBOW PARTY 2016

  3. HH was in serious tantrums this morning when innuendos were made that he should start grooming a winning candidate and that he should perhaps give his electorate hope by announcing his future successor.This ended in the doomed rally!

    • One thing worth noting is that it’s not easy to run a viable party. Ask Sakwiba , Miyanda and Nawakwi. The moment HH steps down, that will be the beginning of the end of UPND. Those advocating for that are probably hired guns. You only start grooming someone when you are in the ruling party.

    • Maureen has confused the Under Five (HH) and it’s time the blind followers realised this. Masebo too doesn’t know where to go since her usefulness is no longer a factor both politically and otherwise……
      HH is the late politically and those who supported him in the January 2015 elections are regretting. Kabimba too doesnt know where he is going because everyone knows that his cartel colleagues (Post) have openly resurfaced and are everyday trying to advance his failed political ambition.

      This leaves only one might party (PF) in contention for 2016 and now that the foundation is laid, development never seen in our country can now begin.

      Viva H.E. ECL!!!!!

  4. I will tell you who lungu is!!!! he is a dull jigaboo hahahahahahahahahah very soon wina azalila your relative will de deprived of their positions to give his relatives chances of consuming and combusting the resounces of our mother zambia!!!! shame on pf look at your preferential lingu noww look

  5. These changes are smart moves, ask civil servants who work with these Permanent Secretaries and you will understand!!!

  6. Let Sata continue turning in his grave, he was Zambia’s worst President and left deadwood in key positions.

    • He was the best president zambia has ever had. condemn him-kawiso takakabepo president not even Councillor.

  7. What Malupenga the North Western Puppet? What is he doing in NWP, Just Drinking Mineral Water. One day Real Change shall come to Zambia.

  8. Politics of Nepotism, Hiding under One Zambia One Nation Sugar coating the chloroquine Pill with cream, Sata planted Nepotism, Triblelism,Segregation,Division publicly. At his rallies he openly used to say “When your children and those of the neigbour are crying for food that you have,who do you give?” , ati Icikalilwa pansaka ,Musumba wabwali, kabi ati “Uwakwensho bushiku , bamutasha nga bwacha”

  9. Kasolo has survived the chop. Very lucky chap. Yes Dr Chileshe is a true professional , him and Dr Bwalya Ng’andu didn’t deserve to be shunted into rural areas. Thank you Vodgar Chakolwa Katata Tobwa Lungu for recognising their talent.

  10. A President must be free to choose own team. You cannot question that. He cannot be retaining, disappointing or indeed appointing people you the unelected fool. This amounts to usurping his powers. Some of you just want him to appoint your relatives. So keep waiting until you die of envy.
    So far EL has scored more than what many people expected. Only the disgruntled are complaining.

    • Totally agree with JL, but Lungu also needs to sort out the DPP (Nchito) saga fast roads in the interest of Zambia.

  11. what about the woman in Southern province who is ever in Lusaka doing nothing ? we don’t see her value here although u hate us.

  12. Can you admire on this information below and tell me how we shall come out of these dates bamunyeme baiba;
    1. US$750million Dollar Eurobond
    2. US$52.5 million loan from the World Bank
    3. US$70.1 million loan from the Nordea Bank of Denmark
    4. US$52.5 million from the World Bank for healthy
    5. US$144 million ON BEHALF OF ZIMBABWE
    6. EUR 53,14 millions from French Development Agency (AFD)

    10. K80 billion for Poverty Reduction from China
    11. US$26 million loan with International FUND for Agricultural Development (IFAD)
    12. US$5.6…

    • This is peanuts as long as we borrowing for developmental projects. Which country doesn’t?
      Imwe ba UPND concentrate on advising your to think before he opens his maggot filled mouth!

  13. This will just put all the Zambians into poverty and if we are not careful, we shall go to Ethiopia and find refuge. PF must go in 2016.

  14. Title; “makes new changes” instead of “makes changes”

    Is there also such a phrase as “makes old changes”?

    • Did you guys ever research what the rainbow flag stands for before you named your party the Rainbow party?
      You will soon be getting support from all over, kikikiki!

  15. Zedos your mother has just been caught in the act of making ya pamela and amalume. Stop spending money pa net and help her out of hunger.
    Zedos your father was recenbtly caught in Maamba area naked. Find him money for transport from Choma. Do not disown him just because he is a mfwiti.
    Zedos you must be a dog. It is a pity that your parents defaecated an animal like you.
    End of full stop.
    Reshuffles are health. EL commits no sin by reshuffling his players.
    It is only a sin not to reshuffle fossil damaging master Chikwanda.
    Plse ba kateka chinjeni ba Chikwanda twachula twapapata.

  16. PF risks repaying all these debts/loans as they will be treated as odious debts by the coming government as these loans were not prudently utilised & were corruptly acquired & solicited by PF looters. Coming to the issue of tribalism & nepotism in the appointments of employees in government -public service-it is all BEMBAs in top management: such as in;ZESCO,ZamPost,ZambiaRailways,ZamTel,…& all other sectors including .Ministerial Positions & Permanent Secretaries! Its really difficult for Visionless kachasu Lungu to effectively & efficiently deliver! Its a flea circus in this last episode of that failed Regime reign PF!

  17. Edgar Lungu and RB were seen in Windhoek having a foursome
    with Margaret Mwanakatwe and Dora Siliya.
    umbi nearly fainted coz was stoned drunk .
    The other one near collapsed after taking VIAGRA

    BREAKAWAY PARTY FROM THE CURRENT PF GOVT

  18. Government of the east by the east for the east.Sasa bwana Lungu fukuza hawa Bemba tribalists wote.

    Wajinga na wakora Bembas walifikiri Zambia ni yao pekee yao.

  19. Govt of the east,by the east for the east.Bwana Lungu fukuza Bembas wote walifikiri Zambia ni yao pekee.

  20. Lungu is still in “new car” thrill mode and thus consolidating his new authority.

    Just like with a new lover,the thrill of office will soon be gone bwana Lungu.

  21. Leave us alone nase tinyopoleka.The Bembas were eating alone now its our time and there time will come too.Even the Tongas ,Luvales Kaondes and Lozis ,there time will come.Who knew in USA Obama a Black muntu would be president.Lungu do like RB its our time in eastern make Chipata and Katete as beautifull as Livingstone.

  22. Even Suba! the late President’s sweet heart! Maybe she will concentrate on her law firm as opposed to using govt resources for her law firm. Should have retired kasolo also ba Eddie, he is just a kapoya, part of his brother is a cartel

  23. [email protected], be informed that the more you talk about HH the more confusion PF will plage itself in. Your hate for HH takes you nowhere and only yields you trouble. HH is a well gloomed BUL, and such cheap atterances will just lead you to your grave yard. I am telling and informing those bent on Insulting HH that their days are very much numbered. You mean you people are not able to do your analysis. Since HH came into politics and those who have dared him are 6 ft in the ground. He is a simple looking gentlemen, but he can move mountains and rivers to open up, Well cooked, if you know what I mean. Have you ever noted any worries in the way he does things, regardless of gravity involved. HE IS A COOL GUY. Say whatever you want to say about him, but all things love him. His roots difficult to k
