  5. Mutati and his officials are attending a Ritual Meeting and earning themselves huge Travel and Substance Allowances but nothing of benefit to Zambia will come out of these Meetings. By Raiding HH’s home without a search Warrant, vandalising the Home,Teargassing the Occupants, beating, torturing the workers and arresting and slapping him on trumped Treason charges Illegitimate Lungu has demonstrated that Zambia is now a failed Police State. There is no longer Rule of Law, Respect for Human Rights, Good Governance and Constitutionalism. Mutati can go to hell and will not get a cent from IMF and other Multilateral Financial Institutions. Even Aid Donors will walk away from the Illegitimate Lungu Regime. Lungu is naive and has shot himself in the foot.

  6. Deny them! Deny them! PF is so stupid and will reap what they sow. Thought they were clever but let’s see what transpires now. I bet you abena Mutati are just shivering now. Ka Lungu has just destroyed Zambia reputation because of his ignorance and thinks he is God. Well it could not have happened at a better occasion (Easter weekend)!I am sure considering Zambia is a Christian nation, this will raise questions as to how we treat others differently. I hope no donors give aid so these ministers realize the amount of cobwebs in their heads. Ass-holes abusing donor money and use it to build mansions and put their kids in expensive schools to buying expensive vehicles. And to the Zambian’s supporting corruption. what do you have? Does ka swine Lungu pay your bills?

  10. IMF don’t give funds to Zambia. The govt is spending heavily on stupid items. Guns for police. In the west most countries their police force does not have guns. Zambia police despite being unprofessional and poorly trained, have most expensive armory and drive expensive vehicles for personal use.
    Last government ignored IMF checks on overspending, Zambian govt spent billions of dollars on arming police and ignored health and education system for development. Ignored job creation and road maintaince and water and housing projects.
    Do not give Zambian government money. Not even serviced loans..!

  12. The international financial institutions respect the rule of law. The rule of law does not exempt a politician who breaks the law. The IMF officials
    UPNDonkeys, you have been hallucinating and you are comfortable hallucinating forever. That is your birthright, seleniko tubombele icalo cesu.

  13. The international community do not need to be told about HH’s path to treason and prison. They have watched TV, read the newspapers, watched UPNDonkeys on the streets and in videos rioting even at the high court worrying about their money with those thugs on the loose, they have heard or seen HH on Radio and TV offering to go to prison. They have heard and seen it all, and they are amazed at Zambia’s high level of political tolerance not seen in Africa and other parts of the world where IMF has given loans. They have even read and accepted my assessment of HH and his party UPND as donkeys.
    To the world, HH is simply a criminal suspect not a political detainee. Sorry donkeys, the truth hurts.
