This is according to a statement availed to the Zambia News and Information Service (ZANIS) in Lusaka today.


  1. opposition MPs please demand from the speaker to explain why the Constitution was breached by the President to unprecedented levels .Many of us are wondering if we still have a constitution in this Country.
    please invoke the impeachment proceedings with minimum delay.

    • @1ambanwa,Please try to weigh what write? Do you believe that should be the first issue in Parliament if at all it is even a matter worth discussing? The opposition is almost a third where do you think they will find the numbers from to win a impeachment vote? Electioneering is over people will be discussing issues of getting going with work:Budget and possibly how to deal with TRIBALISTS who destroyed others’ property and threatened their lives thereby ENDANGERING OUR DEMOCRACY! After all we have yet to see IF OPPOSITION WILL BOYCOTT PARLIAMENTARY OPENING BY LUNGU who their party leadership CLAIMS IS ILLEGAL! That is how LOOSERS think, NEGATIVITY ALL THE TIME.

  2. There is time for everything, time lose and time to move forward… Ambwana is still sleeping he friends have waken up… Thank you Bwafyaa.
