    • Its simply a tourist visit…. they are better people in government who would have leant something from the visit. If you have met this lady you would understand that she does not even have the basics of education.

    • Fellow Bloggers,
      I have a question that has been bothering me since yesterday 18th October (Sunday) concerning the prayer and fasting that was televised live on TV.
      My question is; Why didn’t any of those close to 50; so called Pastors, Reverends and Bishops including the chiefs who were lined up by PF pray against CORRUPTION and BEER DRINKING? I recorded all prayers that were said yesterday but no one of those “Men or Women of God” ever directly prayed against corruption and beer drinking.
      Is it because they realized that their pay master (Mr Brown Envelop Expert (ELC)is gilt of these two vices.
      Surely we had prayer and fasting! What a mockery!!!
      BUT REMEMBER, GOD CAN NEVER BE MOCKED. CONSEQUENCES WILL FOLLOW THE SO CALLED MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD INCLUDING EDGAR LUNGU AND HIS BUNCH…

  4. While poor Zambian women / wives were busy praying and fasting, Esther Lungu was busy making allowances in Arabic countries. After prayers some Zambian women had trouble to find food while Esther Lungu was busy eating and mis managing there hard earned money.
    Meanwhile, before 13 hours yesterday, Edgar Lungu ate food and drunk beer and came at 13:00 when the easily cheated Zambians were busy fasting, what a shame.

    • That is the same kind of fundamentalism you are developing on your christian nation, stripping women of their clothes in broad daylight and caling anyone who does not agree with you a satanist.

  7. Diplomacy aside, I still think the nice lady mama Esther Lungu over-did the Islamic garb thing. I doubt very much if the wife of that numskull King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud were to visit Zambia she would even bother to wrap vitenge around herself.

    • The contexts are completely different. In Saudi Arabia all the women are required by law (their religion is their law) to be fully covered. In Zambia there is no such requirement for women to be dressed in chitenge. It is a tradition and no obligation for women to dress in chitenge

    • My dear friend Blahbla, I’m sure you have your own reasons for defending the double standards of these Muslim guys. I can go through a laundry list but I will not. Let me just point out to one. In Islamic countries it is against the law for a Christian church or Jewish synagogue to he taller than any mosque in the vicinity. There is no such law in Christian countries. Why? Because Muslims are not capable of respecting other people’s religious beliefs but expect other people to submit to theirs. That’s what rubs me the wrong way.

  10. I wonder whether Zambia has enforced ethics underpinning who this country associates with. I mean the Saudis have a poor human rights record. China is abusing Christians and what about the ordeal our bright young students endure in Russia? Need I mention the trip Wynter Kabimba once took when he was in grz, visiting North Korea and Palestine?! Bushe chaba shani! A country must have values and principles that shape who our friends are, sha!

  11. The protocol office did not do their research properly. Ordinarily, moslem women do not shake hands with men. Conversly, hard core moslem men do not shake hands with women. Easther Lungu may not have known that, it could be that Prince Al Waleed was forced to shake hands with Easther.
