Mrs Shoko has also told ZNBC News in an interview that the vice President’s presence at the conference is indicative of how seriously the Zambian government takes matters of disaster management and reduction.

  1. I like her but she is too old to carry out her work succinctly.

    The president must replace her with Mumbi Phiri

    Thanks

    • How can that be done whe Gogo is protected by the running mate constitutional clause? Mumbi is a useful i.d.i.o.t only fit for political fical work. Let her enjoy under a full tenure of Chagwa as she gives national character face of a Zambian inclusive Government.

  2. Finally the old hen has been allowed to travel…she is useless she is supposed to the voice of wisdom but alias..

  3. I’m sure Lungu wanted to go but his wife told him “they are calling you kamwendo munjila just let Inonge take your place this time. You can go later when people have forgotten”
