  1. Nice to have you back safely Mr President.

    Watch out, Bembas didn’t like their loss of power and might send a hitman against our dear president.

    • BA PRESIDENT, JUST ONE SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD THING CAN MAKE YOU WIN ELECTIONS NEXT YEAR. PUT UP STATE-OF-THE-ART MILLING PLANTS IN TEN (10) RURAL TOWNS. THIS IS NO ROCKET SCIENCE. IT IS THE SIMPLEST THING YOU CAN ACHIEVE BUT ONE THAT CAN SEE YOU IN PLOT 1, AGAIN WITH NO DOUBT. THOSE MILLING PLANTS SHOULD HANDLE ANY GRAIN. ONCE THAT IS DONE THERE WILL BE EVEN PLENTY TO EXPORT TO ANY COUNTRY, 2017 THERE WILL BE MORE FARMERS OF DIFFERENT GRAINS HENCE MORE GRAIN EXPORT AND STRONG KWACHA. PRICES OF ALL GRAIN WILL DROP TO A DRASTIC LEVEL. YOU WON’T HAVE TO FORCE MILLERS TO REDUCE THE PRICES OF CORN MILL. THAT IS THE ONLY EFFECTIVE THING YOU CAN EASILY ACHIEVE WHICH CAN ECONOMICALLY, GO A LONG WAY. DON’T PUT THE UP IN LUSAKA OR PROVINCIAL HQs BUT REAL RURAL TOWNS.

  3. If this guy cared so much about Zambia, by now,you could have seen the difference. Unless you can prove to the Zambian people just 1 thing and not even 2 he has done so far to improve the living standards of the Zambian people? Yes, maybe that of the Zimbabwen people by f o o lishly comitting the country to paying a big loan on behalf of that country.

  5. ATTENDING AN INAUGURAL CEREMONY ESPECIALLY FOR ANY SOUTHERN AFRICAN COUNTRY IS A NOBLE AND ACCEPTABLE THING. BUT UKULASEYA FYE NGE NDA YA MUBUKUSHI NAPASHILINGILE TAKWATWALE CALO PANTANSHI. THERE’S A LOT TO BE DONE AND ACHIEVED IN ZAMBIA. FOR INSTANCE, IT IS TIME LONG OVER DUE ALL ZAMBIANS STARTED AFFORDING ALL THREE MEALS PER DAY AND I MEANS EVERY ZAMBIANS. STORIES AFTER 50 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE ARE NOT MAKING ANY SENSE. BA PRESIDENT LEAVE RB’s UKUSEYA ALONE. UKUSEYA CAN COME LATER.

  7. This president will be remembered for his departures and arrivals and his habit of moaning about how tough his job as president is.
    Soon he will be returning to the RSA for medical review and the cycle continues.

  9. WASN’T LUNGU ASHAMED WHEN HE SAW HOW ORGANIZED AND DEVELOPED NAMIBIA IS? JUST YESTERDAY WHEN NAMIBIA GOT ITS INDEPENDENCE, AND IT’S ALREADY PERFORMING FAR MUCH BETTER THAN THE CRAZY ZAMBIA WHICH CELEBRATED ITS GOLDEN JUBILEE LAST YEAR, YET ITS ECONOMY IS STILL RAVAGED AFTER SO MORE THAN 50 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE. ZAMBIAN POLITICIANS HAVE DRUGGED OUR COUNTRY INTO THE MUD. THEY HAVE NO POLITICAL WILL-POWER TO DEVELOP OUR ECONOMY, AND LUNGU IS SUCH WORSE CULPRIT!

  10. “…Vice President Inonge Wina, Defence Service Chiefs, Cabinet Ministers and other senior government and Patriotic Front party officials where on hand to receive the President and his entourage…”

    Wow, special welcome after long absence of less than 48 hours!!!

    Now I got it. Instead of working, all this lot is employed just for airport greetings?

    In comparison, when Obama comes back from intercontinental travel, from AF1 to Marines1 to WH without any greetings.
