    • HOW MANY PEOPLE HAS PF KILLED? HOW DOES THIS COME ABOUT. IN FACT IF YOU CAN ANALYZE AND CHECK ON THE NAMES THEY ARE NOT NW PROVINCE NAMES. THESE ARE NAMES FROM PPPPPPPS. NW IS BITTER WITH THE OUTCOME OF THE RESULTS AND AS LONG AS LUNGU IS ON STOLEN SEAT THE NATION WILL EXPERIENCE SUCH AS THIS.

  2. It is sad but what I know is that Kayekesi is PF and you remember his hate speech when Lungu was said is the winner, there was jubilation by PF in this region. People are not happy with this elections even the president himself knows by heart that I did not win. I want to tell PF cadres to reduce their tone when speaking or else they will start burning you at night.
    It is not about land dispute but about hate speeches especially by the PF.

  3. I think sometimes we blame politicians even when its not directly them..I dont think this issue is about any political party being to blame but its a problem of poverty and greed by family members in that area. From the information provided in the above we are not told of cadres but a family dispute over land, some members of the family did not agree with the man and so decided to have him murdered..

  4. @sengeliti am sure you’re only describing your own feelings so don’t bring in politics. You say people are not happy with the election, so you mean you wanted all of us to vote for HH just to make you happy.

  6. Sad to hear about the death of Kayekesi. I want to see one day when Zambia shall be respected. It looks like what is happening we are going back to stone age period because even the current judiciary is biased in its dealings. I know that an innocent person may be arrested but the thugs will be left out.

  7. I dont believe that it was a mob burnt this man. This story is not telling the truth because if it were a mob, what could be the motive of all people killing the man? If it were a mob at least one could have been arrested and would have revealed others. Kayekesi family is not liked in the area because of boastful and next we shall hear will be DC himself beaten up because of bad language in his mouth stinks odor

  9. In no erection has everyone been happy and that’s how life is.next time it will be DF to rule after winning erections in 2026 after PF has had its three terms.No more up and nd on the zambian history. No Tonga party can make it now now. Remember ANC and nkumbula ,up nd and mazoka till now. No future.Zambians are very serious people.

  11. But people are happy 7provinces, the majority win.
    That is democracy must respect the wish of the majority even if you didnt vote for them.
    There are so many demons in the strongholds of UPND.
    To them a loss is a win , how do you with less numbers, it doesn’t make sense. Satan thinks the opposite, there was nothing stolen from elections.
    But there boss claims a win he is a devil.
