  1. The level of incompetency among our leaders is appalling. This man couldn’t express himself, let alone be cohesive. Sad!

    • What a sorrowful man. Wait a second, is that a cabinet minister in Zambia? Extremely scared, I thought it was Edgar’s personality, but no, it is just how Sata left them.
      So who calms down Edgar when he is so stressed that he can’t even no longer dance, when people like Yaluma are caring themselves as if they impregnated one of their house maids?

    • This shows great lack of intelligence or understanding of the basic problems and concepts. If he understood what he was talking about, he would explain and express himself easily that even a three year old could understand. Infact this is what the measurement of understanding dictates: Explaining concept no matter how hard they are perceived to be in the most simplest of ways that everyone can understand.

    • YALUMA, YOU MUST LEARN TO FINISH A SENTENCE BEFORE YOU START THE NEXT ONE. I MUST SAY I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED BY YOUR SPEECH PERFORMANCE. I DON’T KNOW WHO CAN EXPLAIN THE ISSUES OF MINING IF YOU CAN’T, YOURSELF. YOU MUST ALSO LEARN TO RESEARCH BEFORE GOING FOR AN INTERVIEW. THE ANSWERS FOR THOSE VERY SIMPLE QUESTION SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON YOUR FINGER TIPS. NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY THE GOVT CAN’T MAKE GOOD DEALS WITH THE MINING INVESTORS. TO AVOID LENGTHY EXPLANATIONS I THINK YOU JUST SIGN OFF DEALS. BECAUSE MINES INVESTORS SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOLD FROM THE BEGINNING TO GENERATE THEIR OWN POWER, JUST LIKE DANGOTE GENERATES THEIR OWN POWER.

    • @JayJay, and he is probably the 2nd best minister in PF, can you imagine that? This why sometimes my fellow workers see me walking in the cold with my handkerchief wiping my tears… What has Zambians done to God?

    • The man lamentably failed when he was in charge of communication and energy …he has cost the country millions of dollars under his watch but he is still in the job.

  3. pipo are made differently. some are good talkers and are able to express themselves well in public. others are bad at public speaking but good at implementation. so you cant call someone dull just because he is not articulate in speech. Just like HH is a good businessman but a bad politician. Thats just how it is

    • YOU ARE RIGHT, BUT HE SHOULD HAVE DELIGATED REALISING THAT HE IS NOT A PUBLIC SPEAKER. MAYBE A DEPUTY MINISTER WOULD HAVE DELIVERED. THOUGH, I DON’T THINK THIS WAS A QUESTION BEING BAD AT PUBLIC SPEAKING, BUT, SIMPLY NOT HAVING SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE ABOUT HIS MINISTRY AND JUST NEGLIGENCE OF DUTY. ANYWAY, LET’S GIVE HIM A BENEFIT OF DOUBT.

      This man should not be a cabinet minister if he cant articulate basic issues imagine him trying to articulate gov’t policy or negotiate in our interest with business savvy Global Mining executives…these people are not worthy of the salaries they are getting from tax payers. A third year student can answer these questions with ease. It is no wonder lazy Lungu is eager to form alliance with MMD as his Party do not have the brainpower.

  4. This is appalling from ba Yaluma. Mr Yaluma could have done better in this interview. He was once Minister of Energy, now Minister of Mines and above all, he is an electrical engineer. So we expect him to articulate these issues without any difficulties.

  5. A simple group meeting before the actual main event our government official representing our motherland Zambia fumbled, what if he was given the responsibility to be among the speakers for the main event? Thanks HH for representing us well.

  6. Edgar, please when you win on August 11, first thing is to replace this “minister”, he is a liability. Failed to answer a single question. Mumbling about copper prices when he is asked what zambia is doing in the solar energy field.

  7. Zambians are to blame for voting such people into office. This kind of talk is expected of kambwili but now even Yaluma. I am changing my itinerary so that I am not on the same plane with this minister as I come back home.

  8. Sata said he hired only the most useless people to be in his cabinet. Yaluma here has just confirmed that. What punks!? Do you people now understand why Lungu can never face BBC, CNN or some other inquisitive journalist? The job of governing a nation that these guys have taken on is beyond their depth. How embarrassing for an “educated” man to fail to articulate simple issues, and he was literally sweating and nervous. It’s a miracle he didn’t break down and cried on TV.

  9. How does this man communicate mining strategic plans to his people? He does not seem to have a cohesive 50,000 foot view of current and future mining sector administration required for long term sustainability. It is sad, very sad indeed.
