I don’t think you guys know what you are playing with. You can call each other names and laugh about it now but when you end up inciting hate here as I read through your posts here and a real civil war starts in your country you will regret what you are doing now.

Your religious and political leaders are trying to divide you between religious lines and you are helping them do that rather than standing up and say we are all Zambians never mind our tribe, region or religion. That’s the only stand that will save your blessed nation.

The foreign powers pushing the government to take certain decisions will abandon you when you start killing one another and reject you from running to their countries so be careful.

Our 11 year war in Sierra Leone was not even based on religious or tribal difference and see what we did to our country. The worst conflicts are those based on tribal and religious differences. See Central Africa, Bosnia, South Sudan and Rwanda. To have a better knowledge of this, please watch the documentary/movie called _”Hotel Rwanda”_ or _”Sometime in April”.

My heart bleeds when I read what you guys are saying because I know what this will lead to. You will be the losers all of you whether Christian, Muslim, Bemba or Tongas.

Stand as one and save your nation together because you have only one Zambia that has the potential to lead Africa.

  1. The Redemption of General Butt Naked (2011)

    Tells the story of Joshua Milton Blahyi – aka General Butt Naked – a brutal warlord who murdered thousands during Liberia’s horrific 14-year civil war. Today, the General has renounced his violent past and reinvented himself as Evangelist Joshua Milton Blahyi. This portrait takes viewers on Joshua’s crusade to redeem his past, as he confronts his victims and attempts to rehabilitate the former child soldiers who once fought for him. Whatever you make of him — liar or madman, charlatan or genuine repentant — the film challenges viewers to ask important questions about both the power and the limits of forgiveness, amid a nation’s search for healing and justice.

    • @Omar, you are wrong. Zambians are not stupid like most Africans you give examples. Even in this failed elections, all soccer clubs are playing with no problems. People go drinking with no problems. The president goes to Church, no problem.
      Zambians we are smart… Its only you Seria leone who are worried, not Zambians.

    • well said and talking from experience, Zambians should stop being manipulated by greedy politicians. PF controlled by RB started the wako ni wako nonsense and they expect everyone to follow them. Zambians have become tribal to think a Tonga, Lozi or another province like North western can produce an inclusive leader? They put fear in people like easterners to think HH is bad. its a shame when Zambians have some much inter married each other. If LUNGU is a true leader, why has he not come on tv to talk about this? his conscious know that he never won the election.. stealing at the highest office is a shame. starting from poor Tax payers money to a vote.

      Zambians should think and act differently and not let these politicians divide us. because such hate will have endless troubles to…

    • HH’s beginning in politics was founded on tribalism. Patrick Chisanga, Shinono and Saki were chased from UPND because according to them only a Tonga can lead this mighty party. We have not forgotten, brethren. As a matter of facts, it is HH who has brought tribalism into Zambian politics. He is just using gbm and a shield for his greedy presidential ambitions.

    • @ Nostradamus, that’s exactly where the problem lies; Zambians think they are too clever and they can never have a civil war in their country; Zambians think some tribes are naturally stupid. Grow up Zambians and start behaving like normal human beings.

  2. This is a never before seen confession of one of Liberia most feared warlord and his time under the control of satan. He talks about how he became introduced into the satanic realm when he was a boy. This video was recently made and publish in Liberia. I hope you enjoy it and share the links with others.

  3. Selfish and envy is what the opposition are all about. They think if you in opposition everything is to oppose. A country is not a debate club where the opposing side and the proposing side won’t settle for anything but see an eye for eye.

  6. Any blood at this point in time should be blamed on HH and MUMBA. HH has decided to use his ungrateful tribe to get power, Mumba is also busy alarming things on muvi tv. These two evil men should be taught a lesson because Zambia is far much bigger than these two buffoons.

  8. Never in my life-time did I ever imagine that one day in Zambia,some politicians will be born, who will change the landscape so grotesquely that the nation will be split (like North Sudan & South Sudan) against each other. Zambians have always been such peace-loving people; so forgiving, so tolerant of each other. When I read the things people are currently writing about each other, in this column; the ugly insults they keep hurling at each other, it makes me think I am reading a completely alien newspaper. Indeed, as the Jehovah’s Witnesses have always prophesied, the end is near. Today,Zambia has ground to a halt, economically, and the welfare of the poor masses has been totally ignored, while these tycoons are busy fighting about “who got more votes than the other”… Out here in…

    • There is one politician born every minute. As for the world coming to an end its been doing that since the 60s according to the Jehovah’s Witnesses. People should stop being selfish just because you’re old you want the world to end now atase

  12. I don’t know what the worry is about. So far we have shown that we are a country of laws. We had an election whose results have been disputed. Those who don’t agree w8th the results have taken the matter before our courts as provided for by our constitution. The court has not yet made a ruling. Stop scaring people. So far we are on course.

  13. There will be no war in Zambia as far as am concerned. Its a bitter pill that UPND is failing to swallow. They made themselves believe that there was a wind of change in Zambia when in actual sense that wasn’t the Case. Do your home work and come back in 2021. No one will take to the streets to do any crap. Lets get to work.

  14. 8 UPND Cadres are in KAMFINSA, They stole the ballot box for Lungu, what they wanted to do with it we don’t know. Mwaliteta’s story is well known. Preliminary investigations are showing that UPND was fraudulent in their strongholds. Lets wait and see the court’s ruling. HH and his UPND were overconfident for nothing.Truth be told, Edgar Lungu is the man. He won the elections convincingly. HH and GBM are the ones bringing all these confusions. They will find them selves in prison

  15. I thank my brother Omar for the advice to ALL Zambians. This should be taken into consideration to all those who want to start violence now. Think about our children and women where are they going to run to. These leaders will run to other countries say GBM will go to his second home SA, HH will also go to his second home Nigerian/UK. We should think of “Where are we going ourselves?” Whenever you take a stone think of your family members and relatives. These borders are now open but when that time comes they will close completely to allow no enter their country. So please dont start fire when you are in a thatched grass house. Brothers and sisters take this advise as serious as you can. For what benefit after all. Politicians eat alone and their families

  19. I was the PO during the elections, I can say it is practically impossible to rig the elections the A0’s of GEN 12 with results are still stack at Polling Stations with signatures of political agents affirming credible results, deep down in UPND’s hearts they know they clearly lost the elections that’s why you’re using pre-election evidence as the basis, HH should come out and condemn the violence we all thought Sata’s career was over in 2008 bye elections but he showed maturity and won the hearts of the people in Western which made him wim win in 2011, whether ConCourt rule for re-run HH will lose by a land slide vote coz now even those who supported him in CB and Lsk are upset coz he wants to subject the country to more expenditure by having another election so he can run down the…

  22. Zambians, If we seriously look into all this, we find that politicians are the ones using tribalism to divide as for their political goals. Mostly especially from the rulling party when it saw that they had not delivered on their promise for more money into the peoples pockets, They had to to resort to tribalism for survival. Because it is easy to accuse one tribe for anothers insecurity. Consequently people did not vote for a person who will improve our living standards but for a tribe. The result is dangerous and should not be tolerated. From the extent of intermarriages in Zambia, ordinally Zambians are not tribal. Few mind the tribe of persons they are attracted to, marry, befriend, transact with etc. This only become an issue during presidential elections because its a simple tactic…

  23. When one seemingly saviour of the masses started reporting in the name of democracy all the so called middle class rushed to read his half truths and twisted stories. It was not long before many dug themselves so deep that they could not come out. The paper’s slogan had realized its slogan’ The paper that digs deeper” Deeper indeed the so called middle class of Zambia dug itself into it without looking back. The paper with its owner was so deeply involved in politics, and all manner of mischief including stubbornly refusing to pay tax that was collected on behalf of a legitimate Govt. Little did they realize that they were propping up the monster that would later promote sectarianism in our great nation. The hate speech was taught and touted in its so call news paper like a piece…

  25. It is said “first digest every piece of information given to you before you utter anything”. Again to be fore warned is to be fore armed. The Sierra Leonean has seen war, rather experienced war, in Zambia today in this time and err, when you shout saying there is bomb in town, people will flocking there to go and see. I end here… Now another fact is that how many refugees as a country Zambia have we hosted and from which countries? Do you want to be a refugee as well. I can help you with the line up: Angola, Rwanda, DRC, Mozambique etc. For me he has point. You will only realize how VALUABLE THE PEACE we are enjoying when its gone and moreover are you going to be welcome wherever you’ll go. AVOID this Civil war at ALL Cost!!!!

  27. By now, Government should formally use the evidence of those arrested in riots to officially write to HH and warn of the consequences if this wave of destruction and ethnic cleansing starts. International organisations that HH had written to who have okayed the vote will be more than willing to send investigators on the ground to compile more evidence against this destructive behavior and its architects. They can then be charged under international law for inciting ethnic hatred which can give to ethnic genocide!! These UPND chaps should be shamed publicly and internationally. By now those who supported UPND in other areas have now seen how hateful these people are and how for them this election was more about ethnicity rather a competition of ideas on governance! HH and UPND MUST BE…

  28. What the guy from the warlord sound simple but he is only trying to advise you. This is true anything is likely to happen soon. Remember the war in south South Sudan and North. It began as a result of getting wealth from south n developing the north. You we are happy with this gvt? Wait n see. Our quietness will cost you. Minerals coming from North western to improve your area? You’re sitting on a time bomb.

  29. The real bwafyaa is at hand than the one you have witnessed and your so called international will be nowhere. Everything is in place wait a moment. You will regret. What you have to undetstand is democracy. You should never think people be forced to vote for a person who cares em not. Now when a leader is voted for by the mojority, its fine development must go everywhere starting with the finger that feeds you.

  30. The article has a timely warning. Instead of being irresponsible like @Anyoko comments, let us reflect. We might be away from home, but there is no better place like your own Home. The articles and the letters are read by a number of people across the world yet some comments made are very divisive and in some cases very instigating. We are Zambians before we are Bisa. (I am a Bisa but I am Zambian First.)

This is disappointing, Omar Bangura, this is very poor journalism. Call for peace and for the leaders of Zambia to respect the constitution.
