  1. Let us not politicize this. Where is the rich Milupi to build these Mongu family members of ours, energy efficient homes? I deliberately stated that, ’cause we all know none of those crooks will do any of this.

  2. Zambian villagers should learn something from Malawi villagers. There are no villages in Malawi now which are grass thatched.

  3. Sad development, hope these people are assisted fully. The pictures show the structures in some of our villages who one blogger has refused them being called houses. This is a fact of the state of affairs in our peaceful and rich country, sad.

  4. The Litunga looks rich enough to provide for these poor families. It is time to show that you care for your people Sir, do something now!
