  1. What does a Pf cadre know about challenges of African financing to end poverty and hunger and informing the nation that Zambia is sending envoys to the talks in Addis-Ababa. There better government sources and persons concerned to diseminate and inform the nation about such important matters. This is not an assemble for devicing use of ‘Pangas’ or shooting innocent Zambians at political rallies. PF need to be systematic in disemination of information to the nation.

    • The PF district commissioner is now the one taking over on commenting on national financing. What happened to Chikwanda and other useless, silent PF ministers? Which month are elections in 2016?
      We know Kambwili was at funeral of his friend Jerabo leader at notorious Nkana stadium.
