  1. A Whip in One Hand and a Bible in the Other:

    Forget what you have learned, and learn what you have never been taught!

    Things You Never Knew About Slaves and Christianity

    • Is Zambian defense minister Edgar attending too, how can he miss such a meeting when he is one who told us about the tension in North Western provinces?

  2. One problem we have in Africa is we are quick to agree and sign documents without studying them first. I only hope things they agree on will, indeed, be implemented.

  3. @heart&soul ninshi ulelanda kanshi? post clear things coz there is no bible discusion at the meeting its all about security mwana stop halucinating,the only worry is army commander and inspector general ar busy making allowance about 2days ago they were in mozambique and flew straight to south africa the chaps are busy making money coz they fear they might not be in office after 2016

  4. Kalaba is really so excited about international travel! Minister of Foreign Affairs doesn’t entail foreign gallivanting only – sometimes leave it for your PS or deputy bwana. Same applies to your boss! Namunfwa!
