    • The Barotseland Agreement 1964 is now on the international affairs, now watch the space as things unfold.

      The USA’s State Secretary John Kerry reminded the masses to the fact that, Zambia does not recognize the BA’ 64, & has persecuted innocent people for treason just b’coz they stand for facts & truth. The U.S. Human Rights Report found Zambia with violations of people’s rights in Barotseland.
      Viva Barotseland, bye bye Northern Rhodesia.

      The Skeleton Key

  1. Bamasoldier batu bama bisama during piece keeping. Basokoloka ngati paleka kunvela chongo chapapapapapa.

  2. The ZAF Chief said the Zambian economy was improving, and urged all compatriots to participate in its further growth”

    Dude, stick to your role, you are not a competent person to comment on the country’s economy. You’re not an economist nor a Ministry of Finance/BOZ official. Your statement is a thinly veiled campaign message for the ruling party. You will never hear Military commanders from more advanced democracies veer from their mandated role to take up added role as “economy spokesperson”. Happens only in Communist countries.

  3. Chibaula Silwamba, Lt. Gen. Chimese, Dr Mwaba Kasese-Bota, ZAF Legal Counsel Brigadier General Jonathan Chola Makanta, Zambia UN Mission Military Adviser Brigadier General Erick Mwewa and Defence Attaché at Zambia Embassy to the US Brigadier General Henry Mukuka, and photographer Capt. Michelle Mwiza Kayanda etc. Is this a coincidence or carefully appointed personnel from two or three provinces only? Or is it only One Zambia One Nation when we are seeking re-election? What happened to Kanunda’s tribal balancing in the Defence forces and elsewhere. Is this the case in all Government and Parastatals?

  4. Useless you want UN missions abroad when you cant even protect our airspace from wildlife smugglers who fly in and out at will…shameful commander!!

  5. When the Zambia National Team plays or is selected fuus you don’t say anything like this. What is wrong with you? Kalulu-Rabit.

  6. The chosen one….
    Security is a very dynamic term. Food security, economic security etc….All militaries world wide have repositioned themselves to respond to the dynamics of the new global security enviroment….unemployment is a security risk….ask your friends….

    Do not be naive and show your ignorance at this platform!!! Anything that can create conflict deserves a security comment. At this level of leadership, this dude is expected to highlight important security and national issues….you missed the point…read the article again…Government is a system and all activities compliment each other without killing specialization or division of labor….

    Learn at times to simply read an article and identify the main points…

  7. Wigs are a curse to our women, be it an educated Doctor/Professor etc., it does not matter. Our women are an embarrassing lot when it comes to dress ; they are simply colonised by their warped minds
