    • We call all well meaning Zambians to start calling for the resignation of the President on medical grounds.

      The man is making the value of our currency to go down.

      No mercy for Edgar Lungu is a disgrace, how can he stand when he knew he was not fit.

    • Manje where is the so called vice president Wina? Still in USA doing God knows what. Her activities in USA are just wasting tax payers money from a poor country. These activities add little or no value to Zambia and the many poor Zambian citizens. She is supposed to have come back immedeatly her boss fell ill to run the country. We now have a vice vice since the incumbent vice is not here when she’s most needed

    • You call Ngosa mature? Did you not see him when they were fighting Scott? Yet Scott has been proven right in less than 2 months. He is just another foolish lawyer.

  3. The doc is a very principled man and he has no ambitions of leading pf as some of you are suggesting. Sata brought this man on board because his maturity and intellect. Remember that he is just a nominated MP. You will never here Simbyakula making silly comments or even politicking. The is just not petty. Boma Inonge and EL are not much to this man, like it or not!

    • I totally agree with observer Dr Syms is a very knowledgeable and educated man. Infact he is sort out throughout the world for legal advice. He has educated many of our lawyers. I would put him at par with the likes of professor Patrick Mvunga! He is not a typical PF-ian!

  4. The information just received indicate that President Edgar Lungu’s illness is very complicated and the government sources are planning to transfer (evacuate) him to Pakstan or India.

    Meanwhile, information has emerged that President Lungu trusts Ngosa Simbyakula than Innonge Wina.

    So Simbyakula will remain the Acting President even when Inonge Wina will be back, but sources fear Inonge wina may be bitter and even bewitch Mr. Simbyakula as the Old Lady is feared wen it comes to the use of African Magic.

    Thanks for the trust u have for the Accurate Sources.

  6. Instruments of power are with Simbyakula. When the man who has gone for an operation in South Africa does not survive in the theatre, Inonge Wina will come and grab those instruments from Simbyakula.

  7. We just need to cut this country in the middle so that the serious ones can get down to work and not these charades going on. Barely two months down the line and you are already being flown all over for medical tourism? It is so embarrassing. You have just been appointed and you are already going to New York, to do what, really? Even the Americans are surprised, what do these people want here before they even sweep their homes? Let those who just vote on ‘ifintu’ go on with their circus so that we also get down to serious business.
