  1. Who is going to believes the Pathetic Fascists who have so far almost brought down two aircraft through violence (Kampyongo in Kasama and the stoned helicopter and Miles Sampa in Ndola)? These are two faced liars (bokabemba mucahabeli). Look forward to the opposite of what they promise.

  2. This man shud be serious with his boss ECLungu, hw about the sinda incidence where the area mp was on most wanted by pf cadres,upnd supporters beated when Lungu visited the area but no arrests made, Mwila shud call for a reflesher training on his boys Lilayi product its like they dont understand peaceful gathering and let them avoid tear gassing peaceful assembly like what happened in choma

  3. This grade 7 also/////. Just politicking to deceive.What is he doing in parliament when the new constitution bars him and he likes abena MWaliteta?

  4. PF always does opposite to what they say starting from topmost himself. Just watch PF hooligans and their PF Police the savage they do to innocent people during and before campaigns start. All what we will hear from the same goons and their myopic media is oppositions condemned, oppositions condemned as headlines. GOD please save us.
