  1. This impounding of Trucks by Unruly Party for Non-Democrates (UPND) is worrying, that is the reason they will cry again. The Unruly Party for Non-Democrates always gives ruling party a good race. They are good in opposition and not in ruling and governance

    • Imagine the 1diots even demanded to break the seal so that they can just see what is in the truck which was enroute to nothwest. Ababena mashilu.

  2. PF cadres, you idiiots amaze me, evidence of foreigners being registered in our ECZ databases is there, we have ugandan scammers working on the voters register & a recording of Kapyongo & Malupenga & you still want to restrict UPND from protecting their votes. Insipid much!
