  1. Mister Justice Minister, you are better than Edgar Lungu the galloping horse. Who is just interested in gallivanting. But HH is far much better than all of you Pf members.

    • I am appealing to all PF Members of parliament to consider impeaching the ailing president Edgar Lungu.

      He is an impotent president who is just interested in global trotting.

      Edgar Lungu, please stepdown, Zambians do not need you. You are such a useless man for the highest job in the land.

    • GRZ should put on hold all these expenditures until the economy improves. These guys will require allowances every time they meet including travel costs. It’s time to put the economy back on track. The president should also consider reducing his international travels as it is costing the Zambian people a lot of money which currently, they do not abundantly have.
