  1. @Mushota As much as i countless times, love your intellectual and factual comments on Lusaka Times. Some times you can be down right heartless, like right now.

  2. the article does not tell us the time the accident happened so that we lobby for the minister to come up with another SI to restrict vehicles travelling during that time

  3. @mushota, Zambia is in a mess because of Bemba thieves.have a heart for every Zambian whether Bemba or no Bemba otherwise your end will be terrible. Remember what goes around comes around. This is a friendly warning

  4. Just realised that this Mushota has an empty brain. How can you bring tribe in this. This person weather a she or a he is a BIG FOOL
