  1. They have been committed for the past 50 years and keep changing hands in State House without fulfilling the commitment. What a mess of a country’s leadership we have suffered with! Lord what have we done to deserve this!

    • This is the same loser that told us on national radio that load shedding would end in November. Let us show these guys the door next year. PF has has been a bad experiment.

  2. Kalok, my dear friend, what do you expect from these thieving Id!ots. Instead of working they have spent the last five years kneeling before crowds & shedding crocodile tears while looting the treasury.
    What does Yaluma, for example, tell his wife & children as his achievements as a cabinet that have positively impacted on Zambia as a country?

  3. those are just words, and they have never been matched with actions………….. and stop the fake humility its getting old.

  4. How is this empty tin still in the job given the shambles that had been going on in Energy and Communication…only in Zambian politics!!
