  1. What about kaizer zulu, he was not there kikikiki? i hope you make your maiden speech and point out the evils that the British and Americans have done to Zimbabwe and Libya. Expose as the terrorists they are and also implore other members to give a vote of no confidence in the security council unless it includes an african member country as a permanent member.

    • I was also there. That was the saddest & coolest presidential reception/welcome I have ever seen. Don’t understand me wrong, it is not only Lungu who has no “value”, but the POPE is in town….. Even me I didn’t want to go and check on Edgar, I was forced to drive someone there.
      Anyway, your PF president arrived just fine, he didn’t dance today, sorry.

    • @Mbuzi, Edgar nachimulasamo ka round-bottle of tequila. Ati dabwa sana, na mona Mumbi Phiri andolesha with surprise, she asked “Nga uyu mulumendo ni nani, tabakwete na belly?”…. so I walked to her (I didn’t know she was that short), I told her that I will be back Saturday, after Edgar finish his ukubwatabwata…. so your recommendation of HENNESY will be delivered via Mumbi Phiri.

  5. Go visit some gas stations and see how cheap gas is. Please plan to visit some of the manufacturing plants, auto as well as energy plants. You might learn one or two things to help you plan on how to alleviate the load shedding and ways to create jobs. DON’T GET DRUNK, ask you former worker at the Zambian embassy in the USA who got drunk and was arrested. There’s law and order in the USA. Lastly, you might want to try to demonstrate by the road sides and see that there’s no POA here. WELCOME TO THE USA no ichmpwena kuno te ku Chawama.

    • He is getting drunk thinking that problems will run away from him. Am PF but his mobility is questionable really.

    • @kabu…

      Sata only traveled then because he was under pressure to prove he was healthy and for his selfish wife to collect some award…a healthy Sata in these circumstances would have been at home pretending to work.

  9. That is the best thing LUNGU can do best. He leaves his economy yawning and goes to collect Dollar cover to increase his personal savings. The man is just something else. Zambia as it stands now is hopeless. All the things LUNGU mentioned in parliament are not doable because he never gave outline how these were going to be done.
