  1. Chagwa danced because he won elections.
    Can your President dance after losing elections?!Or can your President dance after losing an erection!!!

  2. All this at what cost! President Zuma of wealthy South Africa used a commercial airliner to travel to New York. ECL President of impoverished Zambia chartered a private jet at a cost of US$500,000 rushing there before he could even complete putting together his pathetic cabinet! This senseless wastage by ECL has to stop. This country is facing very serious economic problems to whose solution Kaiser Zulu will not contribute anything. The next five years will not be easy for ECL and he had better begin showing seriousness otherwise his exit will be many times worse than his entry has been. By the way let him curb the naïve political ambitions of his parroting daughter who now wants to be Deputy Mayor. It is beginning to annoy many people.

  3. I believe those of us who voted UPND and have had our voice unfairly silenced must begin to urge the international community to impose economic sanctions on Zambia in order to force the due process to take it`s course. UPND leadership and its core base must not just sit idle and expect miracle to happen. DRC is currently on fire as people have taken to the streets to demonstrate injustice. UPND must start calling for sanctions and suspensions from international bodies.

    • Mulimba, most likely your HH will be at Hague very soon for the violence and murders he instigated in Southern province against people from Northern, Luapula and Eastern provinces of Zambia. Your greedy of seeing only HH as president for this nation will leave you totally demented very shortly. HH tried to push for a government of national unity through his terror in Southern, parts of North-Western and parts of Western provinces but he failed miserably.
      HE ECL has a mandate to govern up to 2021 and you fools cannot find anything positive to do within this democratic mandate rather than call for international sanctions?
      You are worse than worms in drinking water! Disgusting…!

    • @ Mulimba those who voted UPND had foresight, they wished citizens well and as at now just let go for what lies ahead will console and vindicate you for your choice that might have governed if not for the well known fact that the seemingly best was denied the opportunity to turn the country for better! It won’t be long dissatisfaction will manifest even among those that shied away from UPND. While those that had chosen UPND will suffer coming hardship it will be with knowledge that it was not their wish but that which was imposed by those who gave a blind government to the people of Zambia. It is actually more painful to suffer knowing that one actually participated in creating that which is causing the pain!

  4. Dancing is a reserve for winners only. Kalusas only carry very hearvey files up n down the stirs of courts with scrubled faces

  5. Lungu is a waste of time!!!
    Wasting money we don’t have going to USA just to warm the seat.
    Hiring a private jet then off to Namibia for another party wile we suffer.
    Come back a sort out this mess you and pf have done to zambia.

  6. No presidents or leaders were sitting in the halls. Only lungu in his quest to kolopa for recongnition. The presidents or leaders seen only attended to give speeches.

    • So, to you Spaka like lilo they gave speeches to empty seats? That is the craziness that lost you an election fi UPND cadre!

  7. Really laughable some leaders surround themselves with people more intelligent than themselves but our Lazy Lungu opts for his drinking friend Kaizer Zulu…he should have taken the tin called Bowman Lusambo as well!!

  8. A lungu sure hh has struggled for a long time no success. But here you are just a trial in January you won.HH cried and also imitated to dance but shame he could not hood wink the majority. Now especially with the Tonga hate speeches never ever think hh will rule aweeee

  9. It is pathetic to read some of the nasty comments directed at the president. Zambia has been a peaceful country compared to its neighbour like Zimbabwe where politics are concerned. We don’ t want any civil war and any refuges coming from Zambia due to people not uniting and humbly accepting defeat. If anything the opposition should be preparing for their rule next time round instead of embarking on disrupting the peace of the country. Divided we fall andunited we stand.
