Luncheon with EU Ambassadors on Friday 19th February 2016

Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) acting Spokesperson Rev. Reuben Sambo says that diplomats meeting leaders of political parties is normal and nothing special, especially in an election year. He said meetings of politicians with Ambassadors are routine and they do not mean an endorsement has been given.

Rev. Sambo said when MMD President Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba met ambassadors from the EU last Friday on 19th February 2016, the event was low key as Dr Mumba has been an Ambassador before and understands diplomatic etiquette. Dr Mumba revealed his meeting to the public on the MMD facebook page only after permission was sought from the head of the EU delegation.

Rev. Sambo added that on the day that the MMD secretariat was attacked recently by hooligans, the British High Commissioner went to pay a courtesy call on Dr Mumba. The British High Commissioner was en route to meet Dr Mumba at the Secretariat and was forced to U-Turn to avoid the fracas that was taking place at the party Secretariat. The meeting had to be held at Dr Mumba’s residence instead.

Rev. Sambo said Dr Mumba has met many more diplomats on more occasions than any other opposition political leader in Zambia and his diary is loaded with invitations and meetings with diplomats accredited to Zambia and other eminent persons.

Rev Sambo advised all leaders of political parties in Zambia to be sober on some of these issues and realize that diplomatic matters are very sensitive and should be handled carefully.

    • Lusakavoice:The UPND leader last month wrote letters of invitations to Diplomats accreditated to Zambia inviting them to his house for a luncheon. Although some Diplomats from Western Capitals attended the luncheon on Saturday, African, Asian and Chinese Diplomats accreditated to Zambia stayed clear of the suspicious meeting. “We view Mr. Hichilema as one being promoted by Western Capitals, he is not a friend of Zambia or Africa or China and its agenda” says a senior member of the African Dipomatic Community. “This scenario is almost identical like that of Morgan Tsvangirai and Tendai Biti on one hand, and the government of President Robert Mugabe”. Robert Mugabe was supported by Africa and China governments during the political and economical turmoils of Zimbabwe while Morgan Tsvangirai…

    • Robert Mugabe was supported by Africa and China governments during the political and economical turmoils of Zimbabwe while Morgan Tsvangirai was seen as a stooge of the West. “Tsvangirai was always invited to Mining Conferences and Western Capitals, but the people of Zimbabwe refused to be used as tools of regime change”. On Saturday, following an invitations made to all Diplomatic Corps to attend a luncheon at his house, China, Asian and African Diplomats stayed away from this meeting.

    • @Nubian Princess; USA is not as formidable as it used to be. The country lost grip when Iraq was destroyed on jacked up WMD allegations and voted in a black president who is not respected by white America. Why do you think the clown Trump is amassing wins from the Caucasus? It’s on the simple premise that he wants to make “America Great Again”.
      White America knows that no one is scared of the USA any more and they are hell bent on voting in as USA president Donald Trump because he says out loud what most white Americans thinks.

    • Sebenza this is not Zimbabwe and you can keep your MUGARBAGE fossil and his dictatorial tenancies voetsek. It’d not the first time China has sided with a dictator (refer Norh Korea ) those are not countries we want to become. China itself is starting to move away from such policies and you in your reverse gear think it’s great idea. No MUGARBAGE politics for Zambia ÑO

    • @Real Olivia Pope; I totally agree with you regarding white America. I remember when last year Putin decided to go into Syria and had that meeting with Obama at the UNGA. The deragatory comments by American whites on blogs against Obama where appalling! Obama’s tail has been clipped by the entitled Republican Party. Hell I don’t even have to go that far but look at how Obama was blatantly told to shove his nomination to Supreme Court after Scalia died.
      True USA is not the main player any more. Not if China or Russia has something to say about that.

    • Mr. Sambo, you sound bitter in your article. I wonder who/what has provoked the publishing of this article. No one requested for information about Mumba’s meeting with a handful of diplomats. Yes, Mumba was a diplomat himself, a bad one at that. He still faces theft cases in our courts of law over embezzlement of public funds he sent to his personal account while he was in Canada. Our memories are still fresh. Don’t think we are stupid.

    • @SIDOMARK
      I totally agree with you .

      PFMMD I predicted in 2012 has finally arrived on the political scene and its running scared of UPND.

      UPND does not need an alliance now. Even during second round people who will haved voted for other opposition parties will simply vote UPND.

      I have said time and again that Political alliances in Zambia are not worth worth the paper they are written on because they have no legal backing

      Political alliances only work in democracies like South Africa where MP go on to elect the president after being selected.

      SOUTH AFRICAN democracy is what most African nations needs to fully democratise because its difficult to rig parliamentary elrctions.

      VIVA UPND AND THE HH TEAM.

    • @Ba Sebenza, Mugabe has not won an election for a long time and he has only been remaining in power through vote stealing and military intimidation. His independence liberation army has vowed never to salute anyone who never fought in the liberation war.

      So, that’s Mugabe for you – clinging to power against his people’s wishes!

    • Rev Sambo, when did you become an opinion leader in matters of diplomacy? Just market you selfish leader, who is about to sell his party in an auction sale. PF is the only bidder unfortunately for you and they have started putting terms for your leader to follow. He may just accept a deputy minister’s job, please remind him that in the new constitution that is illigal. PF is likely to do a dochi kube ba on him and the remains of MMD.

    • I find this very confusing, really. I thought diplomats are deployed to COUNTRIES to foster relationships between their governments and the governments of the countries to which they are deployed, and NOT POLITICAL PARTIES!!!! Is this a regime change agenda by EU ambassadors? Come rain or shine, they’ve exposed themselves and their agenda wont work – ask Tsvangirai. We need democracy, but not by selling our sovereignty in this manner…

  1. The final word lies on the Zambian electrolate. Not even a one on one meeting with Obama can reverse their decision. No celebration yet.

    • Quote “Rev. Sambo said when MMD President Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba met ambassadors from the EU last Friday on 19th February 2016, the event was low key as Dr Mumba has been an Ambassador before and understands diplomatic etiquette.”

      Its not too late for your candidates to go back to school. lol

  2. Nubian Princess,

    I didn’t realize you could’ve be this naive and gullible. What this Reverend is saying is very correct. The problem you UPND supporters like you have is that you worship HH like a small god. The fact is you are upset to learn that Nevers Mumba was also visited by diplomats. Just because the American Ambassador was not there does not make the visit any less important than the visit to HH.

    • Stop kalijo ba PFMMD so called alliance.HH has not commented what is your problem.What is giving you sleepless nights when HH meets diplomats if it is a normal occurrence .Tell me which Opposition leader has been visted at home by 15 super power Nations representative in 50yrs.That speaks volumes that’s why you scared.This meeting with HH is a clear endorsement .I have told time and again that HH will not form an alliance with individual political party but people will flock to him to form an alliance just like Sata did because God has anointed this year.No amount of intimidation and alliances will stop him because Jehova has given him poor.

    • Elections are not won by endorsement and rubber stamping by diplomats.The people of Zambia are the one who endorse and have a final say.Diplomats are just there to wine and dine with you.The final say is a Zambian,in Kaputa,Phikamalaza,Shang’ombo who will cast a vote.If a Zambian is disgusted with the current leadership,he or she will chuck it out.It is not a diplomat who will cast a vote.The best people to beg an endorsement from are the people of Zambia.It is not a great fuss that HH or Nevers are being visited by diplomats.At the end of the decisions will be made by Zambians through a ballot box.A diplomat will not be near a Zambian ballot box.He will just come to witness the sobbing and crying of people they have endorsed.

    • @SIDOMARK
      I totally agree with you .

      PFMMD I predicted in 2012 has finally arrived on the political scene and its running scared of UPND.

      VIVA UPND AND THE HH TEAM.

    • If you people have followed this story carefully, these diplomats were invited by HH; they didn’t decide to go there on their own without invitation. In fact, HH did something rather strange: he decided not to invite Asian and African diplomats accredited to Zambia.

    • nubian princess it is you and your party that are afraid of losing. Nothing wrong in diplomats visiting HH. Let these diplomats countries cut off aid to Zambia and we see what is going to happen to us here. Note no UPND member made a comment about diplomats meeting Mumba, no not even your party.

  3. Even Sata was at one time visited by a high powered delegation of diplomats and he lost to Levy Mwanawasa. You must understand though that diplomats will never show any bias towards a particular candidate, they’ll always be neutral. These meetings with politicians gives them an opportunity to gauge the political landscape in as far as protecting their interests in concerned. For them security and safety is their number one concern.
    Don’t be fooled, Diplomats are very smart. Meeting a particular opposition president does not necessarily mean he has more credibility than any other opposition Leader (worth his salt).

  4. Rev. Sambo, who said that that was an endorsement? MMD is not going any were. I am saying becoz with few months b4 August 11 it is still has issues to resolve within its membership. Remember in the last election you came number 4 becoz of the same problems. I wander wen u will resolve yo problems, focus on yo party problems than attacking others. With these court issues within yo party, MMD may end up not filling a presidential candidate.

  5. Sata was at one time visited by a very powerful delegation of Diplomats, he basked in that glory just like HH/UPND, but he lost those elections to Mwanawasa.
    Diplomats are smart, they’ll never show any bias or publicly endorse a particular candidate no matter how popular they are.

    • Nga chumu babani tyani mweo a PFMMD, ala, muchita monga mwa fuma pa toilet after kusilizya 1 ton ya raw guava, kupusa bati…..

  6. THE VISIT IS NORMAL BUT TIMING IS VERY POOR.THE QUESTIONS ARE ~

    *WHAT IS THE MAIN aim & OBJECTIVE?
    * in short u have endorsed hh becoz its election related is it?
    *why now not last year?
    *have u been doing this before every election zambia and in other nations?
    *was this activity a local or instruction from yo varius countries?
    OSERVATION
    -IS YOUR MAIN AIM TO MAKE SURE ECL LOSE ELECTIONS TO ACHIEVE YO OBJECTIVE REGARDLESS OF THE CONFUSION YO VISIT WILL CAUSE?
    -U DECIDED TO SUPPORT HH BCOZ HE OPENLY SAID HE WILL BRING ANGLO AMERICA WHILE ECL SAID HE WILL NOT.
    YOU WENT TO HH S HOUSE AS AN INDIVIDUAL TO AGREE ON TERMS WHAT SUPPORT U CAN OFFER IN TERMS OF TRANSPORT,MONEY,ETC OTHER WISE IT WAS NOT OFFICIAL (U WOULD HAVE GONE TO UPND OFFICES)
    *HOME MET PRIVATE AND SECRET…

    • Yes only thieves are scared of this meeting.The reason is simple-powerful nations will send enough election observers with powerful and sophisticated spies to stop any rigging.2.They will document any electoral violence and malpractices and even recommend some one to the international court of Justice.3.They will provide enough protection to HH from those planning an assassination and or an form of physical harm on him by monitoring his movements all time.4.They will provide enough resources to enable him campaign effectively. The main objective is to stop PF from rooting there donor money and human rights abuses. This is to save the country from anarchy perpetrated by illiterate individuals .

  7. HH never mentioned anywhere that the diplomats visit was an endorsement. Why is MMD and PF issuing statements to downplay the meeting? If Nevers Mumba had a meeting with EU ambassadors and decided to keep it a secret, that was his choice. If HH meets diplomats and decides to make it public, that’s his choice. Why has this become a topic only for MMD and PF? Why have they become gittery?

    • The purpose of the visit is simple, to urge the diplomats to pay attention to the violence and electoral infringements and bias of the ruling party. Of course they don’t influence voters but can put pressue on government to conduct themsrlves fairly, particularly with POA and curbing violence. Don’t know why people unnecessarily complicate things.

    • Naine napapa sana. You invite diplomats for lunch and you say diplomats visited you. I was under the impression that diplomats out of their own volition visited HH. “UPND spokesperson said diplomatic community in Zambia did not endorsed Mr Hichilema but only wished him good luck in the August general elections. Mr Kakoma, who is UPND spokesperson, has dismissed assertions that the diplomats who were invited for lunch by Mr Hichilema at his residence, had endorsed the opposition leader but that their visit was meant to share with them the parameters of the political situation in the country.”

  8. Ba nevers Mumbai thought he was the only one visited and wanted to tresure those moments for the rest of his life, only to realize that actually a larger contingent of diplomats visited HH after his ka little meeting earlier,can’t keep that to yourself anymore, it was just a luncheon what so etiquette about it? We see leaders of nations popping champagne in public ba nevers beve ati diplomatic etiquette, malabishi ya muntu.

  9. HH is better, it shows that he doesn’t want to keep secrets from Zambians, probably ba Mumbai kept it has a secret thinking them diplomats will give him something in monetary terms for his campaigns, HH doesn’t need to do that, just put it in public domain because there was nothing sinister about the meeting.

  10. It’s Etch – Etch on Eleven Eitch.
    It’s our stomachs that endorses. Every time the stomach aches, the brain is reminded of who has increased those aches and who can alleviate them

  11. UPND never issued statements when your man of gold was visited. I wonder what has prompted/irritated MMD to issue statements on matters that are outside their finshed carcass of a party.

  12. In fact if MMD members if there any, are serious, let them find out why their president kept such an important meeting a secret to them, and if it was a luncheon we saw madam HH welcome the guests, where was madam Mumbai? Only him and Sambo, maybe they thought something monetary was in offing thus so much secrecy about their meeting, Fallen Pastors, or is it PF=Pastors Fallen!

  13. lets get organised and defend the independence of our country. We dont know what is in the consession which HH signed with imperialists. He sold our companies to whites now he wants to give them our country.

  14. haha! I chuckle when I consider the way information is handled in Zed. Sketchy at best, insidious at worst. I am certain most of these practices are nicely laid out somewhere, there is a little paper trail leading up to this gathering and a few more diplomatic practice entries are enshrined somewhere. But NOOO nobody will spell them out as is – it is all political mileage at every turn! Phew! What a trip! Much ado about NOTHING.

  15. Useless Satanist HH. Zambians cannot vote for him as he is very stupid with no respect to human beings.

    ECL down to earth but very intelligent will carry the day on 11 August 2016. Walk the talk!

    Viva PF the crowd puller.

  16. kenyans voted kenyatta when their candidate was facing International court of justice cases to defend their independence. It is a responsibility of every Zambian to protect this country HH wants to sell our country to colonial masters. lets retire this money thirsty person in August

  17. Fi UPND fitutu period.For them receiving diplomats is like HH has won.Kwena these chaps are desperate with ubututu pamulu.I’ve never seen such dullness before.This chap HH will sell zambia to Agro-America.He wants to bail them out.Aglo America is a finished company n HH wants to chase chinese investors n bring Anglo-America who ran away when mwanawasa came into power.HH indeed sold mines cheaply.He can’t be trusted to rule zambia.We need a nationalist leader not a tribalist n capitalist leader.Viva ELn PF.Pabwatoooo

  18. These diplomats are they here for individuals,political parties or zambian pipo.
    Doing so is more like a neighbor who talks to someone ‘s children secretly avoiding parents. Now in case this was happening to the usa diplomat how wud he feel and what will happen to the relationship with his neba.
    Kindly LT deliver these questions to this group.we want facts.

  19. Two points to note:
    1. HH met a wider range of Ambassadors and they actually followed him to his home. On the contrary Nevers sought this appointment with EU Ambassadors only at the latter’ office. It seems Nevers is doing a copy cat of what HH achieved.

    2. I am finding it difficult to comprehend which statement from MMD is genuine and which one is not because there are too many spokespersons, factions, rebels,etc.

  20. The diplomats summed up the visit by telling the zambia people that ‘HH is a strong candidate’. Surely HH has persevered and has proved to be the best candidate for republican presidency.

  21. HH is a very desperate man!!he thinks that if he invites those diplomats and pose for photoes with them,then we shall vote for him-NEVER!!these useless diplomats cannot influence us voters to vote for a chief tribalist HH in Zambia-NO!!THEY JUST WASTED THEIR TIME!!HOW I WISH PRESIDENT OBAMA CAN RECALL THAT EXCITED FOR NOTHING SHORT MAN US AMBASSADOR!!WHETHER THESE DIPLOMATS LIKE IT OR NOT,WE SHALL ONLY VOTE FOR PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU AND NOT THE SATAN1ST HH!!ZAMBIA IS A CHRISTIAN NATION,SO NO FREE MANSON SHOULD RULE US CHILDREN OF GOD!!GO PF GO!!

  22. i wud rather be a PF interllectual cadre who understands diplomacy than a UPND cadre who thinks they have won the elections already by the visit of the diplomats………thaats wat diplomacy is..it leaves many unaswered questions bcoz wat ws discussed remains top secret to the attendeees kwasila…..so lets wait and see u loosing again…mayb in 2021 u will come up with a credible and formidable leader rather than yo small god…anyhow we all knw ati IFINTU NI…….u can finish

  23. The meeting with Diplomats is okey. whether they endorse or not, the people of Zambia already endorsed for emancipation from suffering. An average zambian will not vote for untold misery and suffering brought by PF. Banks lendining rates are as high as 40%, the price of commodities is way beyond the reach of an average person. Imagine for the first time in the history of Zambia Tomato is costing K350.00/ Crate, kepenta meda (5kg) K110.00, SUGAR K30/ 2KG, Mealie meal 95/ 25kg, chicken K40/BIRD, choice beef k55/kg, Mbuzi K500/ goat, the list is endless. The only cheap staff is beer and sex from zim girls. WHY??? VIVA UPND

  24. Divide and Rule ati HH does not want to keep secrets from Zambians. Your hungry hyena has kept the biggest secret from us of how he amassed so much wealth. He never talks about his parents, is he mwana wamuchingololo or he is ashamed of his parents? He wants to hoodwink us for votes that he is now so popular even diplomats meet him, let them vote for him. To upnd cadres this was an endorsement and it is very big news in Southern Province right now. Maybe these diplomats are his fellow masons. HH can not be trusted, he is rotten to the core and very very very sneaky. By the way, where was Maureen?

  25. After reading most of the comments.One thing is true is that most people are jealous of Hikainde Hichilema LIFE AND WEALTH .LIFE IS SHORT GENTLEMEN AND WOMEN YOU CAN NOT LIVE LIFE HATING ONE PERSON’S JOURNEY OF LIFE.WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN HH WINS TO THOSE WHO ARE TRIBALIST AND THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIAN LIKE EDDY(who does not know what a christian ought to).IF SOMEONE WAS TO ASK ME IF EDGAR Lungu is a christian my answer is NO.If he knows that leadership comes from God and he has been anointed why cant he allow others to campaign?if he is christian why is he not following what the bibles says?To Nevers Mumba,no one stopped you from publishing the photos with Eu delegates.STOP BEING JEALOUS AND HATING.WE ARE ALL IN DIFFERENT ZONES OF LIFE AND STOP COMPARING YOU WILL GET FRUSTRATED…

  26. Gabby, you mean the diplomats are now campaigning for HH and telling us who to vote for. It is you choice to vote for whoever you want, but I refuse dictated to by any foreigner.

  27. Ni Diplomat wangu lini:) Kalaba from the ruling party and its Government contended they had no issues with foreign Diplomats visiting opposition leaders. Manje mweo a felliow opposition a Marubeni Sambo chamibaba bwanji? What happened to your deliberations as running mate for ECL? The role of opposition parties is to promote checks and balances on rulling party, but for Nervers MMD it appears their role has is on to mudsling and condem fellow opposition, just dissolve your party and join PF. If anything Kalaba has more etiquette and diplomacy than Nervers, he is calm, collected and resolute.

  28. I have said it before and Iam saying it now. The campaign strategy being employed by UPND is having no impact on the ground. Being visited by diplomats as a political leader is a normal diplomatic gesture which diplomats world over do.

    Zambian people are not going to vote for you because white diplomats visited UPND leader. I dont know in which world you live in. You seem to live in utopia.

    The sooner you engage the Zambian people on the ground the better otherwise WINA AZALILA

    • Lapkenfamily

      Wait until campaigns are allowed by the F00lish PF to see and appreciate the full impact of UPND on the ground.

      VIVA UPND.

  29. Nevers the western diplomats you met said you are a week candidate!
    please stop being trivial and being a “me too” your playing to the gallery shows that your base is weak.
    strong leadership yields unity not division, your MMD is in shambles right from the day you took over concentrate on strengthening the structures within your party, as we speak you do not know if you are an opposition leader or not,are you offering checks and balances or you are offering support for a failed project pastor, pastor you are supposed to be Shepard of the flock but you are now a wolf tearing the flock apart.

  30. Oops typos; meant ppears their role is mudslinging fellow opposition. In fact if the opposition do not unity now and do away with their egos they will suffer serious consequences come Elections. Now is the time to strike alliances if you are to unsit the ruling party.

  31. @president has your changwa mulamu told us what made him not to succeed in any business venture ? It’s none of our business, just mind your damn business. Is it a requirement in the Zambian constitution for presidential candidates to showcase their parents in public, and do they need their parents to help them run the country? NO! so what’s your point? So many Maureens in this country would try to be specific and to the point.

  32. Comment:Peter
    February 24, 2016
    IF YOU CANNOT ACCOUNT FOR ‘YOUR’ WEALTH THEN IT SIMPLY MEANS IT’S NOT YOURS. IF IT’S YOURS, YOU WOULD BE VERY PROUD TO TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU PASSED THROUGH BEFORE YOU BECAME WEALTHY. NO ONE HIDES HERE IN THE WESTERN COUNTRIES. MOST TYCOONS SUCH AS DYSON, RICHARD BRANSON, ALAN SUGAR, TO MENTION BUT A FEW, ARE VERY PROUD TO DISCUSS THEIR WEALTH. MOST IF NOT ALL HAVE EVEN WRITTEN BOOKS OF HOW THEY STARTED AND IT IS INTERESTING TO READ ABOUT THEM. WEALTH CAN NEVER BE MADE OVER NIGHT. UNLESS IT IS INHERITED IT OR DUBIOUSLY OBTAINED IT. SO, BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THOSE PEOPLE WHO CAN’T AND GET ANGRY AND BITTER WHEN ASKED ABOUT THEIR WEALTH. TOTALLY, REFUSING TO DISCUSS YOUR WEALTH IS A CLEAR TESTIMONY OF THE DUBIOUSNESS OF SUCH WEALTH. SO, KEEP SUCH PEOPLE AWAY…

  33. I am wondering why the MMD is concerned about what the UPND is doing to sell its candidate. I think Mumba should realise that HH is a poolitician and he is behaving as a politician. The diplomats are experienced and the US ambassador in fact said he has been in the job for 30 years, so they know what they are doing. If they didn’t want the whole thing publicized they would have said Mr HH please no cameras and no journalists. So Mr. Mumba is best advised to concentrate on President Lungu since he wants to take over the job instead of wasting his energy on a fellow opposition leader. Maybe its the alliance already in operation.

  34. Only a fool can fail at there seducing words of this diplomats, When PIlato insulted our President they called him a hero he must be a full. you insult your father and your neighbor praises you but that neighbor cannot allow you to insult hi father.

    This people carried a bible on one hand and a gun on the other hand. Now they have come with Democracy on one hand we don’t know what they have on the other(maybe it is satanic culture).

  35. I don’t know what is being wasted on this issue,wether it is space or ink. But to help you all, it’s only the diplomats who know wether it was an endorsement or not. We all don’t know, so let’s go back to some productive work. How does the MMD know it was not an endorsement? Let’s leave the issue to the diplomats.

  36. Ba Sambo jealousy will not help you and your party to win the hearts of most Zambian peoples who hate your party, like they do now with pf, because it destroyed Zambia. The departed Sata and his team went all over Zambia to discredit RB and MMD as a very corrupt people who had plundered Zambia’s meager resources. Zambians in hatred toward RB and MMD believed him and voted them out. ELC comes in and brings back the corrupt mmd thieves who are parading themselves as angels of light when they are darkness. Diplomats have found HH as a strong contender, and that is the reason they went to confer with him, period.

  37. UPND should be investigated well.Even last year elections these chaps were jst marking ballot papers.Never trust such pipo in southern.The turn out was 70% in southern province whereas the rest of the country 27-30%.PF should find good monitors otherwise it will be 100% turn out in southern province for UPND.let PF send pipo to monitor elections in southern who are trusted otherwise trusting chuundu chaitwa pipo will be an embarrassment to lungu.These chaps we’ll be making ballot papers coz almost everyone in southern province is UPND except a few pipo in towns.Ba Lungu plan well otherwise southern province will shock you n PF if not monitored.They are planing to come up with UPND polling agents and monitors who gonna pretend to be PF.

  38. ubukulu bwa ma-ta-ko te bwingi bwa mafi for sure you will see as if they store from but they did not

  39. ….this Sambo guy reminds me when I was about 8 or 9 years old….I used to have a dull neighbour friend of mine about the same age….when ever I said we ate Nshima ne nkoko, he would say so what we also ate nshima ne nkoko thru out the whole of last week…when I say dad brought us sweets he would say our dad also brought us pan cakes….until I said I passed number 1 that’s when I got him to shut up…eeish

  40. Where is the problem kanshi? PF are saying there is no problem. Kalaba said that and the Diplomats agreed with him. So what is the problem with this hungry MMD.

    Please sort out your messy in the party. We are looking for strong opposition political parties for our strong democracy. Stop behaving like rabid dogs biting anyone who comes their way.

  41. “when some one is searching for some one or something,anybody or anything resembling who or what they are searching for becomes it!” From yesterday’s comments,UPND supporters picked diplomats’ visit to HH and their comments as an endorsement and likely win for him. But no ,since there is still an election to be won! What MMD is trying to do is to say Diplomats meet political leaders,may influence the opinion but they have not the deciders. So they show that they have had such meetings before at the offices (not at home)! MMD is also trying to dilute HH’s meeting because they want to show that they are actually working with government (alliance) to weaken UPND. So MMD’s show of how they have had engagements with Diplomats is merely to show UPND supporters that it is not new and has…

  42. Peter Tosh prophesied and warned us a long time ago in his famous song called “Fight Apartheid”. Just after that album, he was shot dead! Listen to this song and get the truth, ..In my land, they dig Uranium, they get their forces right where you are digging our diamonds… we gonna fight fight apartheid….
    So lets be careful with some of these people, HH and UPND have already sold Zambia and the only way to pay back is to go go extremes.
    We will NEVER ALLOW HH TO SELL OUR COUNTRY AND WE SHALL ENSURE HE IS BURIED DEEP ON 11 AUGUST 2016!!! Zambia is too good for the likes UPND and HH.

  43. These diplomats are fake u got drunk and started over praising the landlord
    WHAT U SHUD KNOW
    -WHATEVER EACH OF U SAID WILL BE USED IN CAMPAGNS MEANING HH WILL FEEL HAPPY AND ~
    -OTHERS AMONGST YOURSELVES WENT THERE TO KEEP AN EYE ON~GET INFORMATION ETC WHICH AT LATER STAGE WILL COME OUT.
    REMEMBER DO NOT INSULT A CROCODILE WHEN BATTOCKS ARE STILL IN WATER (WITUKA NGWENA ILYO AMATAK- YA CHILI MU MENSHI.
    SOMEONE S TRAP HAS WORKED BUT NOT AS PLANNED.

  44. REVEREND SAMBO. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS MATTER INTO THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE.

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NEVERS AND HH IS THIS. HH WROTE LETTERS AND ACTUALLY PERSONALLY INVITED THE DIPLOMATS TO HIS HOUSE FOR ‘ANIONE ANIONE’ NOT KNOWING THAT DURING THE PREVIOUS WEEK, THE DIPLOMATS HAD PERSONALLY INVITED NEVERS MUMBA FOR LUNCH AT THEIR HEADQUARTERS.

    HH MUST HAVE GOT WIND OF THIS AND ALSO AS USUAL DID A COPY-CAT. BUT AS SOME BLOGGERS ARE SAYING, FOR NEVERS, IT WAS NOT FOR ‘ANIONE ANIONE’ AND THE PUBLIC DID NOT EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT BECAUSE YOU CANNOT USE THAT FOR SHOW.

    THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA SHOULD BE IS SLOWLY COMIG OUT. FEELLOW ZAMBIANS, LETS KEEP OBSERVING.
