  1. IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS VISITING ALL PARTS OF ZAMBIA. THIS WILL MAKE SLEEPING CIVIL SERVANTS AND CONTRACTORS WORK. MY APPEAL TO THE PRESIDENT IS THAT THE RDA’S TOP MANAGEMENT BE REMOVED. THEY ARE VERY CORRUPT AND IT CAN BE SEEN THROUGH THE RAZOR-BLADE-ROADS WHICH ARE EASILY BEING DAMAGED BY MERE RAINFALL. US$1MILLION/KM ROAD SHOULD EASILY STAND THE RAINS FOR AT LEAST A MINIMUM 50 YEARS BUT UP TO 100 YEARS BEFORE STARTING TO SHOWS SIGNS WEAKNESS.

    • It’s culture that has been replicated from the one party state, if a monster, party official was not present at such a function, the possibility of such one been labeled as a rebel was high, and you know in such regimes if you considered as such, possibility of you having your nutters crushed using a pliers was non negotiable.

  2. ROADS IN THIS COUNTRIES (EUROPEAN AND UK) WITH WATER-LOGGED LANDS STAY FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS AND THEY ARE BY FAR LESS THAN MAYBE HALF THE COST OF OUR ROADS IN ZAMBIA. A VERY GOOD ROAD IN ZAMBIA SHOULD COST BETWEEN US$250,OOO.OO AND US$350,OOO.OO. GO TO BOTSWANA AND CHECK THE THICKNESS OF THEIR ROADS. THEY ARE ANYTHING FROM 25CM TO 30CM BITUMEN AND STONE THICKNESS. CONCLUSIVELY, A LARGE CHUNK OF PROJECTS MONEY END UP IN PEOPLES’ POCKETS.

  3. So what do all other government officials do if Lungu’s job is ‘not to stay in Lusaka’ as he says? This is becoming ridiculous. The President on the road everyday – claiming it is his job to visit all ‘developmental’ projects. What are all those ministers, perm secs, district commissioners etc. for?

  4. Haters will hate, when the President is in Lusaka ati lazy Lungu, now he’s inspecting his country aluvyanya munthu is no good, akafa ankhala chipuku. Please

  5. Lets hope our NW compatriots will thaw out enough to vote for someone who is delivering change and economic growth. Suspect no wellwishers turned up to meet and greet the President on his arrival there as we don’t seem to have any pictures!

  6. For upnd cadres whatever president Edgar Lungu does is wrong.what kind of creatures are you?and you call yourselves as SDA members-shame!!a true Christian should not have this kind of HATRED.only one person can be a president at a time.for now until 2021 its ECL and we all must accept that.in 2021 it may be ECL again or HH or anybody else-Only God knows!!!please stop sining by hating an innocent ECL!!lets all give him space to rule Zambia in peace until 2021!!!BA UPND MWANYANYA MWANDI!!your hatred for ECL is DISCUSTING TO SAY THE LEAST!!!

  7. @Nubian Princess, just look at my ID and you’ll see the reason. Good that PF cadres like Nubian are now starting to see some light
