  1. But appointment of Bishop Chomba goes against the desire to do right. If you need the counsel of the church, go to the CCZ, EFZ etc where legitimate church leaders can be found not those suspect bishops. ECL, you don’t mean well to use Christianity and the church. I call that crooked.

  2. That’s a dangerous request,We are praying to God for change of leadership in government. We are praying for wisdom among the electorate and an end to cluelessness, corruption, and mediocrity by the politicians. I believe God is just and faithful to answer our prayers

  4. Amen Mr President,
    The Good Lord appointed you to this office to deliver his people from the jaws of poverty….I KNOW YOU WILL NOT LET HIM DOWN…DESPITE THE SLIGHT TURBULENCE.
    It is international forces which are holding us back. We will soon break the shackles of imperialism. Persevere my countrymen. Zambia is in capable hands…Despite the rantings of the opposition.

  5. Kreeshan Zambian…you must be a comedian! Zambia needs a strong educated leader…a Moses…to lead her people out of poverty and despair. Zambia currently, is a lawless society, a den of thieves and corruption with a weak leader and incompetent people in government. Look at Botswana. Their President is a strong educated military man who looks after his people and runs his country and ministers with a firm hand. Forget about politics…PF..UPND…MMD…etc. The majority of the Zambian electorate don’t understand politics, the economy etc. Zambians need to be led and need EDUCATED leaders who have the interest of the people at heart….not ones who want to steal from their own people. Pray…yes…but pray to remove this useless government.

  10. The only miracle you need to run a nation is education. Last I heard you can pay for it at the same UNZA you are causing grief for students. It’s really simple than you think Mr. President, educate the majority ministers you have who lack manpower such as skills and it will balance itself out. Can we ask to see how many of your staff have a bachelor or master’s degree? You can’t simply have people vomit things they think makes sense. This is why you are killing the Kwacha because of the poor/lack management you made and keep making. We really question the number of educated people backing you.
