    • Welcome back Mr.President. Here is what we are expecting from you 1- Fire Davies Chama for hate speech and explain to us why despite evidence that his gun shot and injured a human being, he has not be called in for questioning, 2- Fire Chikwanda for borrowing to much money, 3-Stop the purchase of cars and use that money to improve infrastructure in our hospitals so that perhaps next time you may be reviewed by medics in Zambia

    • Kamwendo munjila soon to go to Mozambque. We need economic independence not you sir running around like this

    • Been away a whole week and comes back only to take off for somewhere else! So when does he receive an update of what would have transpired in his absence? This just goes to insinuate that Zambians can be governed by remote control.

    • With or without Edgar , Zambia is running itself. Who really cared or missed Edgar who took his family for shopping?
      I don’t see no president in those pictures, none of them look like a president.

  1. Ndeke ni ndeke! I thought chikwanda said you and your bunch should reduce on traveling. Or did he mean you up the travels?

  2. Am I missing something from this report, there is no mention of the vice president or the acting president at the airport to welcome Mr Lungu. Rather unusual.

    • As if it’s not enough wasting money paying for his holiday in joberg, the entire bunch of his cabinet ministers burning fuel to go to the airport to welcome him for what, when we have an economic crisis in the country. This lot don’t care.

  3. Good that you are back, now plan to invest in Zambian hospitals and pay doctors well thank going to SA or Israel for treatment. The money Zambian president have spend on medical bills can build another UTH. Sad poor Zambian who can’t be flown out die in ill equipped UTH. 2016 vote for true Zambian other hire a foreign like FAZ! Anyway HH will change things.

  4. Is PF still SATA’s party that was meant to champion the plight of the poor? Mr. President you have betrayed the tenents of PF. Does your conscious not haunt you are you embark on this crusade which purely violets the the foundations on which the party you have hijacked. Are you human? That Challenger costs to shuttle around. Build a hospital or a school for our children, solve UNZA problems and the list is endless.

  5. Welcome back you Excellence. We love you an wish God’ blessings as oversee the affairs of Zambia. Be strong, you will have or you already have many enemies, but look only to your duty of being Republican President. Because you equally have many Zambians who love and support you!!!

  6. President Lungu you are a let down we thought a young person will be good but you being with RB and all MMD crooks is very unacceptable.

  7. And please Mr president Lungu you need to have control over your people Davies Chama can not be allowed to insult Tongas like that surround yourself with better people not those two you have put to be in charge of PF they will cost you your presidency if you have eyes and ears listen.

  8. He is happy BUT are we? He is supposed to be doing things on our behalf. We expect him to tell us what he achieved for us by his travel.

    • There is nothing for him to tell about his travel because there was nothing achieved. Ask him what the benefit of his trip for reducing unemployment, he won’t have an answer for you.

  9. This lazy visionless bum has been in power almost 6 months and he has taken up to 30 days in paid holiday and sick days…only in Zambia..truly laughable!!

    • Shut up Jay Jay, let Lungu rule. Your bitterness will lead you no where. It is time you accepted that HH is no match to EL in politics. HH is a bad strategist, a regionalist and liar.

      We know HH and his gang have nothing but bad intentions for HH. But remember, there is also a good number of people who love, respect, and have accepted EL as President.

      You will not succeed with your rethorics to defeat EL. The harder you try, the harder you fail.

      It is your HH and UNPD who are laughable for losing and being poor politicians.

  10. Shame upon tribal HH and his fellow haters like ZWD,Mbinji etc for wishing president Edgar Lungu death!!ECL is back and very fit,shame upon u all satan1sts!!U CANT WISH ONE EVIL THINGS FOR THE SAKE OF ENTERING STATE HOUSE!!GOD SEES YOUR EVIL WISHES AND THATS WHY A SATAN1ST WILL NEVER RULE ZAMBIA!!ECL i wish u wisdom,good health and God blessings in your daily duties!!MAY GOD BLESS ZAMBIA!!

    • @eddy! Did you read anywhere were HH was wishing your Lungu death? Leave the man alone, it is you who are tribalists and haters! Why do you have to bring up the issue of tribal each time you open your mouth! Not too long ago your Edgar called tongas ba Kachema! Imagine that coming from a president! The same statement has been repeated by the SG and his deputy of your PF! What can you call that if at all you have a brain in your head?

  11. Welcome back Mr Presido, now can you address the allegations of corruption surfacing every week, the natives need reassuring that every thing is not being stolen. Dont be comfortable listening to your advisor’s that the majority of Zambians don’t get news from the internet, word travels Ka.

  12. @Musonda Bweupe, why do you use bemba names instead of your true bantustan ones?you’re not pride with your real names or tribe?shame!!almost all UPND cadres online use bemba names and i wonder why!!THE FACT IS AM BEMBA AND I WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR YOUR KACHEMA!!ECL HAS OUR VOTES IN 2016-PERIOD!!I VOTED FOR HUMBLE MAZOKA IN 2001 BUT I’LL NEVER VOTE FOR RUDE AND PROUD FOR NOTHING HH TILL HE RETIRES FROM POLITICS!!GO TO YOUR EVIL ZWD SPONSORED BY TRIBAL HH AND SEE WHAT THEY WISHED PRESIDENT LUNGU WHILE HE WAS IN SA!!GO PF GO!WAIT FOR KOLOPA.COM RELOADED IN 2016 IN FAVOUR OF PF!!!

  13. @eddy! I don’t think I can reason with you at the same level! In this day and age you can still vote for someone just because he/she is a tribesmate! Are you so blind that you can’t see what is happening to all sectors of our economy! Be civilized! Yes you cannot for a man with brilliant ideas simply because of petty jealous and you know that! By the way, ndi mubemba nkonko but I look at issues in an objective way and I think about my grand children to come! Your kind can’t look beyond a pack of shake shake given by a PF branch chairman!
