  1. This is what happens when people put their hope in bars instead of their leader. Do you know how many hopeless people are out there? They don’t know what Edgar Lungu will offer them. It’s Dununa Reverse

    • Muziganiza, do u want any president that will ever rule Zambia to come and tell me what to do every single moment? This isi insanity at its peak.

    • You are an ***** to say the least. Sometimes better keep quiet that expose your ignorance. It’s time you started thinking.

  2. This is insane! A baby in a bar? The owners and security should be charge for having a minor in a bar. The government is also responsible if they don’t monitor these places in making sure they fine establishments that allow minors in their bars and sell alcohol to under-aged drinkers and in this case they must. Take away their alcohol licence for 6 months or close them down as a lesson to others. The police and the government need to work together on this case. The mother too should go to prison for a year including servers. If they kept serving intoxicated guests is another fine. Don’t serve intoxicated guests or to the point of intoxication! We all owe a duty of care to our patrons and responsible for them when they are in our establishments. This is why mothers need to stay home.

  3. The council and state police have both failed to control under age drinking and many more by laws. Mothers can drink with babies on their back and even give the babies some chibuku as they drink as early as 07hrs till after dark.
    A visit to shanty compounds like Chipata Compound, Kanyama, Chawama, Mtendere’s UNIP place reveals sad scenes of where women exchange sex for Chibuku, Junta etc..
