    • Israel is one of the most racist countries in the world. Christians, Arabs and Africans are the most hated people in Israel, it’s not the holyland but a business hub to milk money from brainwashed *****s and a paradise for prostitution drug abuse and homosexuality! Israelis are selfish bigoted a s s h o l e s! What did Lungu go to do there?

    • Has anyone in PF told the vision-less leader that millers are in business to make a profit and not save the Zambian people but the government is their to save the people, Reduce the production costs/cost of doing business in Zambia and then prices will go down, That is why you where elected to create a conducive atmosphere for business and people of the land. At times i do think EL is too dull for anything.

    • Welcome back sir,

      and well done fore the successful tripe.

      This is one of the most important trips for Zambia.

      Other than Japan, my respect for Israel is unequalled.

    • Lungu is an incompetent leader! What was he doing on holiday in Israel? The anti corruption commission of Malawi has found over 58 000 dollars in the bedroom of corrupt former Malawi agriculture minister George Chaponda! Why is Dora Siliya not under investigation? She and George Chaponda were the ring leaders of this crime.

  2. Which cabinet ministers welcomed him.since all the ministers went with him.
    Dont be surprised when these same ministers are denied entry to Dubai, Saudi and other Arab states like what happened to Simbyakula when he went to print the rigged ballots.

  3. Just fire Dora today then you can talk about the tripartite agreement. Otherwise, it’s not the agreement but the market forces that will determine the prices.

  5. Statement after statement…what happened about the other statement regarding corrupt ministers with hefty bank accounts and you sorting the out. Or are you still dwelling on the notion that it’s best to be seen talking about something like corruption and doing nothing about it because you Mr. President is at the centre of these corrupt activities. Which is which?

    • Looking at these travels, one would be forgiven to conclude that the man whose name must not be mentioned (according to Matibini) , would rather be out there and occasionally come to Zambia for a visit and replenish the pockets!

  7. Western leaders tour countries to sell warplanes,semiconductors and fast trains while our visionless leaders tour to seek aid and feel important.
    You know if you develop the disease known as “dependence” you’ll die poor.

  8. Hypocrite!!! Going to Israel where they burn African babies with petrol bombs!

    African refugees in Israel face violence, discrimination and an uncertain future. They are seen as ‘infiltrators’ and a ‘cancer’…

  11. Yes, he looks very drunk and NOT befitting of a President. Shameful state of affairs but that is the level Zambia has stooped down to. Really sad that Mwanawasa died before he completely wiped out Sata. And sad that Chiluba died before he could stop Sata. All this would not be there!

  12. Lazy is back to visit State House….there he is talking about Millers when he is forgetting why he spent over $200million on useless overpriced Chines Solar hammer mills..this money could have been used to improve water supply at UTH and other frontline services.

    • @Jay Jay, so he (is) came(ing) back on the tarmac at KKIA at 7pm on Saturday and the security forces’ children are asking their dads were they (are) went(ing) that time on Saturday evening…? (sic)

      By my watch I still have to follow some lunch time football kickoff and Zam U20 are yet to play Egypt!

      Is it Back to the Future?

  16. He appears sick, unable to look into the faces of those welcoming him. The best for PF is to make a statement over the health of the president. Let them not prevaricate as they did on late president Michael Sata.

  17. UPNDonkeys….kikikikiki……when are you winning the petition? Or is it lost? Is that the reason you are now wishing that you could bewitch His Excellwnt? But have you forgotten the constitution so soon? It’s Inonge who takes over, hh has to wait for his umpteenth loss in 2021.
