  1. Zambia Breweries has reduced the prices of beer. Some trips abroad have since been cancelled. Well done ZB. This will save the nation quite some money!!!

    • Lungu should just beg for an invitation to the inauguration or a state visit to Ghana in the new year. The target of 5 foreign trips per month is falling apart quickly.

  2. Hello Zambians. You great people I ask you to vote NEZ as best Blogger. The nominations are opened. Please exercise your right to vote by voting me the most honest man here as blogger of the year. I trust you will make one right decision this year. You already made an error by voting in PF, so please undo your wrong by voting NEZ and nominating me as best blogger. I thank you in advance…. aluta. Lungu always congratulates others but his presidency is not welcomed in his own country

    Chief Strategist of the UPND
    Incoming blogger of the year

  3. To echo father Frank Bwalya, African Electoral commissions are truly independent and are not controlled by the state.
    In Zambia, ECZ oversaw the successful democratic change of government from UNIP to MMD, MMD to PF.
    Gone are the days when small minions, scared little men like (HH) would disguuse their unpopular character in vote rigging.
    How can a failed reject like Kaponya (HH) claim stolen elections? Swyne!

  4. Mr Kudos seems too be too, too bitter. Enjoy eating with the PF. At least you have your myopic view of a perfect political party in power. Wishing you increased wealth.

    • Sore and bitter winners seems a crazy idea but it is true for PF and Trump supporters. That’s the problem of winning through hacking and rigging when you don’t have real support. You become thin skinned and sensitive to criticism.

  5. Edward should also congratulate President Yahya Jammeh of Gambia for refusing to handover power to Mr Adama Harrow who is President Elect. Jammeh has challenged the Election of Adama Harrow as President Elect of Gambia. This matter is b4 the Supreme Court of Gambia . Edward is also in the Courts defending his re-election. Edward is an illegitimate President until the Petetioners are heard and the Petetion is disposed off. No wonder the International Community is wirhdrawing its recognition of Edward until the matter is resolved in Court.

  6. Edward is shameless and a hypocrite. He is congratulating the Opposition Leader for winning elections in Ghana after stealing election victory from HH. Edward has been blocking the Petition becoz he knows there is overwhelming evidence showing that HH won the election outright but he then stole the Victory from HH and illegally swore himself in power. Edward must have realised by now that stealing elections has grave consequences. The Petition is now haunting Edward and he has to find a way out. Edward should closely watch events in Gambia becoz that has relevance to his own stolen Presidency.Without disposing off the Petition Edward will remain between a rock and the deep blue Sea. He has to swim himself out of danger and call for SOS. May Day!

  7. somehow Ghana still manages to shines and remain a good example of true democracy. Unfortunately majority of Africa is ruled by people holding office illegally

  8. Nana Akufo-Addo’s brother was my brother’s lecturer at UNZA, Prof Akufo was for years the head of the Dept of Education at UNZA and his wife was a UNIP MCC. He does look like Laurel Kabila, and to me too old to be president.
