    • The Lungu Image Builder Ltd will now end up declaring Ba Ester as future queen of UK.
      Imagine how that mother was when she sat next to a drunk minister of Home Affairs Edgar, and today you dip her in milk 6 hour before parading her for pictures. 4 weeks more. If she was my wife, time she could have been with her grandmothers in village, not campaigning at airports.
      You will even cry for all that milk & magerine she is stepping in while watching Muvi TV.

  1. I think this is good progress and great encouragement for women in aviation in zambia and aspiring aviation enthusiasts.

  2. I told people here 3 days ago about PROFLIGHT being a PF cadre company,employing and training sons and daughters of PF cadres in SOuth Africa.Next you will hear that Lungu’s Son is a pilot too or he owns an aeroplane.These Thieves have entered deep into the Aviation industry too.Proflight is theirs.That Nkwashi housing project is theirs.The new car showroom that Lungu launched is for them to buy expensive cars from.The Thieves are creating a lifestyle of their own,but unfortunately dreams wont come true.Soon a watermelon will explode.

  5. #Anyoko….errr some of us like those protruding stomachs, a sign of being well fed by their husbands:-)….but seriously, we need to encourage the culture of healthy lifestyles from top leadership to the so called common man. Taking walks and drinking lots of water, can do wonders!

  6. This leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. As much as I congratulate Besa Mumba (congratulations young lady), I will not allow Esther Lungu using her for campaign benefits. This young lady could have been Mapenzi or the young lady PF cadres stripped and Esther or Mama Wina never came to any of these women’s aid. Esther only cares about her image and what makes Lungu and PF look as if they are doing something for women. I am not buying this and hope genuine Zambians don’t as well. As a First Lady one needs to be graceful and embrace all women and not be selective. Esther can do so much more for the poor and alleviate poverty, malaria, reduce child mortality and empower women but she discriminates against women.

  7. Be careful with the EU. So they released 5.6 million Euro’s because they know they will gain triple back. Let’s think this through, they have an interest in our aviation and they pushed for the importation of trophies? One just has to add 1+1= 2. Don’t let them make us think 1+1=5 because this is where we will fail. There is a reason why Britain voted to leave the EU. In our case Trophy Hunting is a multi-billion-dollar industry that feeds developed nations. They will not stop until all our natural resources are whipped out. Those lobbyists in Europe and North America belong in the EU. Be careful when they flash money. Because everyone expects far too much for their money! Only at the expense of our wildlife.
