  1. Maggie can you make sure you put life in the industrial base for ndola. Make sure those exhibiting from abroad with businesses that can mean well to our great country should be talked to so that they establish their branch in Zambia.
    Let’s capitalize on the xenophobia in south Africa and and attract the south Africa companies to come in Zambia.

    • @2.1 YOU ARE ASKING FOR TOO MUCH BROTHER/SISTER FROM LT. JUST FORGET. POOR JOURNALISM IN ZAMBIA IS ACROSS THE BOARD. CHECK THE DAILY MAIL- THEY DO NOT ANNOTATE IMAGES. AS IF THAT’S NOT ENOUGH THEIR IMAGES ARE NOT EXPANDABLE. THE TIMES OF ZAMBIA CONCATENATES IT’S ARTICLE HEADINGS. MEANING ONE CAN’T QUICKLY READ THE HEADINGS BEFORE HE/SHE SETTLES TO READ THE ARTICLES IN DETAILS, THEREFORE, CUTTING THEIR READERSHIP TO A SMALL NUMBER BECAUSE ONE GETS FRUSTRATED EVEN BEFORE HE/SHE GETS TO READ THEIR STALE NEWS.

  2. Why not just say “Kenyan President to officiate at Trade Fair?” Me i thought two presidents are coming from outside Zambia

  3. Surely you can never say two presidents to grace the occasion, is it lack of knowing gramma, especially when one is incumbent, please, please let us learn how to put the Queen’s language in its proper perspectives. Is it because Mwanakatwe is coming from the other side of …….Well, this is encouraging. At least now there is a sigh of relief, Zambia is part of the bigger Africa. Late Cobra was anaza.

    • You Ka @Rasco also!

      Zoona you are ‘Rascal’, Do u even know the meaning of your blog name: ‘Rascal’?

      What do you mean one is ‘incumbent’? Is the other (Uhuru) aspiring? I thought one is the host President and the other is the visiting President! Or better call Lungu resident P’resident’. Don’t just laugh at another person’s grammer when yours is faulty!

    • Kekekekeke! You are number!

      Talk of strategic planning in Zambia… you cracked me up!

      Welcome brother, Uhuru.

  4. Bloggers lets not criticize for the sake of criticizing: 1 Edgar plus 1 uhuru adds up to 2- simple. When did 1+1 became 1- simple Arithematics

  6. This man Uhuru Kenyatta is a no-nonsense guy. He sent 175 top govt officials home on corruption charges to be investigated by the Anti-corruption commission and many of them including ministers , permanent secretaries, heads of departments etc are on their way to prison after being found guilty. He is as tough and development-minded as his biological father jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s founding father.

    • He is corrupt as well finshi mulelanda? He even has blood on his hands. Why is the ICC tribunal looking for him?

  7. You can’t blame them. Material distance journalism Just look at how the new curriculum. Is mixed grill. Social studies mwafaka tu civics na tu RE in one subject…kiziezi!

    • Clearly your brain has stopped feasting on Grammar and comprehension with your petty self. Lumela!

      Viva President Edith Nawakwi.

  8. @UBUNTUNGWA: Be updated! Didn’t you hear the ICC dropped /withdrew his case last year for lack of evidence and the plaintiff apologised unconditionally for tainting his name worldwide? Don’t remain behind the news.
