  1. But as always,whatever consultations will be done over there will only be archived when they get back to Zambia.Zambians are not good at following up on consultative meetings or implementations.

    • TRUE. AFTER USING A LOT OF PUBLIC FUNDS TO ATTEND THE MEETING, ALL THE GOOD THINGS THEY WILL LEARN IN AMERICA WILL NOT BE IMPLEMENTED BACK HOME BECAUSE WE HAVE A DICTATOR , ONE EDGAR CHAGWA CHAKOLWA KAMINAMINSA LUNGU. LUNGU HAS RETARDED ZAMBIA’S GROWTH POTENTIAL.

    • Khikiki…I recall one of Mambilima’s sentiments “We in the Electrical Commission are as helpless as you are, about Zambian Watchdog. The Watchdog has no fixed aboard, it is not someone you can pick a phone on and call to find out about something or any story, we dont even know where they live or operate from” She lamented during election results announcement…lol

    • Too true, HOW MANY TRIPS WILL THE JUDICIARY MAKE TO THE USA, with ALWAYS THE SAME PURPOSE, BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO CHANGE IN ZED!!

      Another shopping trip!!

      Vote wisely 11/8/2016!! Vote Zambia FORWARD!! VOTE UPND!!

      #chagwamustfall!! pamaFi kuyabebele!!

      I thank you!!

  2. You bet half of all that staff you see there are relatives of Sata and Kaseba. Thry must start packing because come August 11, they are all being replaced. They should start buying plots ka NaBwalya to build tunthemba.

  3. Why not bench mark with Costa Rica? The US justice system is only for the rich, and its jails are full of minorities due to serious social injustices

  4. At @Muubu you took away my thoughts Kaseba imprinted everyway as a result of Mumembe and Nchitos ‘MICHEAL”

  5. Zambian Twasebana, no wonder we get F*cked all the times. What’s the meaning of independence. Why seeking advice from the country with their so many screw ups,…LOL….LMAO!!!!!

  6. They are just here to make allowances, consultation meetings for a wider audience can be made over webcast-webner, the phone, emails and so many other means of modern communication other than travel. They have to show us the entire itinerary.

  7. Zambia establishes a Constitutional Court (Concourt) and the President appoints judges and 5 months later Concourt is not operational coz there are no Court rules. Who is supposed to draft and operationalise the court rules? In the mean time the President who appointed the judges creates a constitutional crisis where he retains his Ministers in their posts illegally after Parliament is dissolved. Applications are made to Concourt to seek clarification on this constitutional breach but the Concourt judges cannot sit as a full bench to consider these applications becoz they are no court rules. How can we handle urgent constitutional matters so haphazardly like this? The Chief justice travels abroad in spite of this constitutional crisis. No wonder Zambia is now a failed state under ECL.
