  1. The level of foreign dignitaries sent are telling a clear message which we all know but they are doing it in a calculated manner. Its not too late this generation of Zambians can change this and do even better in future.

    • Nobody want to come who has any sense. Who dresses this man? His suit looks like it was grabbed from the used clothing store. The political prostitute judges must be so proud as they cash their checks sent by Lungu. Useless

  2. This level of delegations leaves much to be desired.The Presidents have serious business to attend to than this stolen victory.Anyway the mood in the country is not exciting as many people feel that this is an illegal President.
    We may not even have any sitting head of states to come to this useless ceremony

  3. Who is celebrating Lungu’s inauguration except those who are benefiting from his shameless crimes, appalling dictatorship and plunder and creation of a ruling super mafia in Zambia. Our Land is now divided because of this selfish man. Zambian will need a miracle to deodorise all institutions and bring the country back to normal.
    Lungu will definitely not enjoy his presidency because he will have to constantly look over his shadow, and will have to think about security seriously given today’s prisoner explosive ‘scandal’
    He will forever be guilty of dividing Zambia and abrogating the constitution. The worst dictator in the history of the country ever. SHAME ON YOU!!!

  4. Whenever you get foreign VPs instead of Ps showing up an a national event such as an inauguration of a thief or when you have rejects in their own countries such as dinosaurs Museveni and Mugabe showing up, then you know the host is equally a toxic thug no serious country wants to associate with. Africa is dead. Finished.

    • Sour Grapes…it’s really painful to lose an election for a record time and if you really over rated your self it is even more painful especially if you think of 5 more years to come…

  5. Only callous president can leave a disaster at home and come for enjoyment. Even Obama had to abandon an important international meeting to attend to the Texas shooting of policeman. Upnd members instead of concentrating on trivialities, start campaigning for 2021.
