  1. @Suntwe wa Suntwe, comment on the issues raised by Edith and not on Victoria’s looks. Oh, I forgot that you could be like Lungu with no vision for mother Zambia. For months we have been telling visionless Lungu to do Zambia a favour by reducing his bloated cabinet but PF cadres have been singing praises to him. We have criticised PF for its handling of the Kariba dam and PF cadres labeled all of us as UPND people and blamed mother lack of more rain as the reason behind load shedding. Here is a knowledgeable Edith agreeing with us why Zambia is in a mess today because of corrupt and visionless Lungu and his PF full of useless MPs whose only aim is to put more money in their pockets

  2. It would not work for Zambia as opposition are primitive and would cause unnecessary conflicts. It would weaken central gov’t and be a breeding ground of anti gov’t activists like HH. Deliberate conflict as we are currently witnessing with the constitution amendment

    Good idea for a fully developed gov’t, not for Zambia currently. Gov’t needs to rule with an iron rod to burch unruly citizens.

    • Seriously, I actually watched the first video and can comment further. Nawakwi’s agricultural revolution is nothing more than a hack from president Kaunda’s ‘Go Back To The Land’ campaign of the 70, 80’s. Our parents responded by buying farms. This Agriculture message is one that comes from our culture not Kissinger. In fact Africans have always been subsistence farmers, in our villages. It is something that is natural to us.

  3. Edith talks about, Soya Beans and Sunflower and making oil, like its a revolution to Zambians. Well, Edith, Soya Beans consumed in a large a quantity in the daily diet can cause infertility. Current Studies have shown this. Soya is a good alternative but it is really being pushed as the ‘be all.’ Making our own oil is progress? Well, I have news. When I was a toddler( I remember that far back), I stayed with my Grannies in Chipata. GrandMa used to pound groundnuts and store them in a warm place until oils were drawn out. I used to peek impatiently waiting for some action.

  4. My parents had a bumper Sunflower crop in 1977 as part of their back to the land experiments. When my sister and I went back home after a spell at National Service Military Camp in Mansa, we were given the chore of supervising and shackling the seeds from the heads. There was mounds of it! What a summer and home coming.

    The point I am making is that Edith states the obvious to Zambians. And that is just the problem. It’s not small scale stuff we can already do. It’s big scale farming support to farmers and rightly as she does support to small time subsistence farming to village folk. The gov’t is on it.

    • Agriculture in Japan is nothing except ‘small scale farmers’. And they are supporting a nation of 150 million. So it is not the scale of agriculture that is the problem.

  5. Effectively, her message bangs on about decentralisation as the one pony party trick she maintains through the years. I iterate that in Zambia that would be a disaster to weaken Central Gov’t because the idea of multi party democracy is still young and opposition parties are still at nursery school stage. The real reason PF works us because it has many Historically Long Term Politicians back in gov’t and that us a good thing far much more than it is a bad thing. Because they have experience and provide familiarity, longevity, and therefore security. Familiarity does breed Contempt, and that is what PF needs to understand. Corruption, failure to collect Investor Tax, waste of Mining Resources by continuing even with poor yield should be what may cost them their tenure in Office in…

  6. However, PF have been impressive in their efforts and have kept a gov’t in place despite the huge opposition distractions they are inflicted with. If there is to be an alternative gov’t it would be a disaster if it were UPND, only violence, break up of Zambia may ensue. Dictatorship is a real threat with HH’s character which has list it’s initial hope into severe psychotic Megalomaniac Leadership. One unsavoury fact about Zambian opposition currently, is their penchant for causing violence and conflict among the people. The opposition is happy to make one Zambian fight another in an effort to ‘wrestle’ power base. His Excellency President Lungu is an impeccable consummate Leader. He and First Lady have humbly kept to their guns over the last year in the face of ridicule and…

  7. He and First Lady have humbly kept to their guns over the last year in the face of ridicule and person insults haranguing every of their movement. Zambians would be fools to throw away Lungu for an ‘idealist’ as Edith. They have been very hardworking no matter the economic climate, they did not faint.

    Finally, the Zambian economy has been barraged by so much uncontrollable external forces that it is disingenuous of opposition to suggest its PF ‘s fault and that they could do better. No such thing is possible. We have to wheather the current economic climate as stout, citizens. Hold hands and walk over the coals together as a united citizens fighting for their country’s well being. Zambia has given us so many female politicians who have been well used. Dora is better in a…

  8. Nawakwi is by her own admission an Idealist. We have to wheather the current economic climate as stout, citizens. Hold hands and walk over the coals together as a united citizens fighting for their country’s well being. Zambia has given us so many female politicians who have been well used. Dora is better in a challenging portfolio than an easy Media portfolio she could do in her sleep.

  9. I just started to play the video and just Nawakwi’s opening statements put me off. The trouble with Nawakwi is that she seems to think that she is THE expert in governance. Well Nawakwi, you are not. For example, the problems of load shedding have more to do with your performance when you were a vision less cabinet minister for energy than with Edgar Lungu. Energy problems and their solutions are long term, it’s not like growing maize or bananas ba Nawakwi twa papata.
    Now if you want us to consider you seriously for president please start by displaying the potential First Gentlemen for our consideration. To us voters he is as important as the running mate you know. Before that we won’t even look at your face twice.
