Mr. Msoni was offended that Mr. Chanda used the foolish remark to refer to his suggestion Nasonthat government should consider cutting down on international trips to serve money that could be used on needy areas in the country.

people who are being paid from tax payers’ money should not insult in that manner


Mr. Msoni told Qfm News that should Mr. Chanda decline to apologise he will be left with no choice but to seek the recourse of the law.

The APC leader stated that his party does not expect people who are being paid from tax payers’ money to insult in manner that Mr. Chanda allegedly did in the said statement.

He notes that the APC is of the view that power should never be used irresponsibly so as to defame and insult citizens.
Mr. Msoni says he feels that he had been abused when Mr. Chanda referred to his suggestion as foolish besides referring to him as an alleged ignorant politician.
He says the combination of words foolish and ignorant politician is unZambian and unacceptable especially coming from a young man.

  3. The comments were indeed foolish! That does not mean he said Msoni is foolish even though he might be. Chizungu baba ni chovuta. It appears Msoni takes offence from disparaging remarks from people younger than him. This is politics Msoni we wont all agree with your foolish ideas!

  4. Lusaka Times, you have great news items, but you put me off with grammatical and typo errors.

    This is the second item I have had to short-read.

    We need the editorial team to please take time with editing your output before releasing it to your readers.

  6. “You are entitled to your opinion, intelligent or otherwise, especially “otherwise”, and so is Amos Chanda, and anybody else for that matter!” You cannot/shouldn’t take someone to court for calling a spade a spade! If you’re unable to see the folly of your argument, then that just reinforces the point, neh? Ah, well, even you are entitled to your folly, right? “He who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a…………………..!” Just a thought, to which even I am entitled, right?

  8. Yes Msoni is very foolish indeed to suggest that trips should be reduced. Those are the works of the government.

  9. Trouble with lawsuits, is that you pay if you lose. Better to take it on the chin and concentrate on winning the hearts of the voters by top class political stand.
