  1. Another ceremonial Veep, just when i thought we were done and dusted with Guy Scott!


    • MHSRIP. I remember Mr. Mulimba in my school days at Petauke as the man who lost to a popular candidate in Petauke by the name of Mr. Chiwawa in the 1978 elections. However, he petitioned the result and subsequently won to become MP for Petauke. Those were the UNIP days. Mr. Chiwawa was a very popular candidate, very eloquent especially in the Nsenga language, whereas Mr. Mulimba was from the emerging elitist group from Lusaka, a preferred choice of the UNIP Central Commitee. How time flies!
