    • I find it very disrespectful of grey Zulu to be sitting whilst bigger names like president Lungu and Kaunda are standing.

      Stand up sir. Who are you anyway ?

      Thanks

    • Very poor reporting by LT. The President was awarding medals and not models; which are otherwise referred to as national honours. And they come in various categories with the top most being the Order of the Eagle

    • The characters referred to as Freedom Fighters were, in all honesty, stone throwers. They never handled any guns like the brazenly defiant ANC umkhonto-we-sizwe. The chap didn’t even have any medal pinned to his suit.

    • If stupidity could fly you would be a jet Mushota. So despicable your behaviour is. Learn your current affairs on Grey Zulu and get on the ground to see who finds these puctures “amazing” in the true sense of the word. Gosh!

  4. BY THE WAY WHERE IS IMBENI DANCE? I HOPE IT IS STILL LIVING. IMBENI DANCE WAS INVENTED IN THE COPPERBELT BY THE BEMBA PEOPLE. THERE ALWAYS USED TO BE TWO PARALLEL LINES OF SMARTLY DRESSED DANCERS. ONE LINE FOR MEN AND THE OTHER FOR WOMEN- THE PARTNERS IN DANCE. I CAN’T EXPLAIN HOW THE DANCE IS PERFORMED, BUT, THE DANCE DEPICTED THE MIDDLE CLASS OR ELITE MINERS OR ANY PROFESSION WHO DANCED WHILE WEARING EXPENSIVE SUITS AND WATCHES AND SOME EVEN HAD WALKING STICKS WHILE THEIR WOMEN EQUALLY WORE EXPENSIVE DRESSES AND BLING, ETC. THIS DANCE AND DRUMMING SEEMS HAS DISAPPEARED FROM ZAMBIA JUST AS THE CHITWANSOMBO DRUMMING. IMBENI DANCE INSPIRED THE FORMATION OF BENI DANCE IN MALAWI WHICH HAS SPREAD EVEN TO ZIMBABWE, ANGOLA AND MOZAMBIQUE, ETC.

  6. Kuyoka kwamwana kuzima mulilo.

    The way a child roasts meat extinguishes the fire.

    In short an inexperienced person will always mess things. Zambia is in a mess.

  9. Lungu is a bewitched selfish mother fcking ar.sewhore! Even his devil God father Rupiah Banda spends most his time in SA on treatment and his estranged devil son Henry lives there in hiding! Imagine what would happen if SA (not ANC) decides to retaliate on the many Zambians especially PF Supporters living in SA?
    Just one possessed evil leader wants to spoil the good relationship with SA for so many Zambians surely!!
    This is a reminder that days are long gone when a dictator could close the borders of his village – we are now in a global village and Lungu cannot and will NOT be able to hide even when he leaves that office he occupies illegally!

  10. Presidents who end up wearing safari suits end up being dictators; Why did Lungu and his immigration minister deport the South African opposition leader? South Africa should start blocking PF leaders from seeking medical help in that country; LT where are pics for UPND?

  12. Africa Freedom Day is one commemoration that should be ditched in Zambia. It’s been meaningless and irrelevant for decades and worse under the ruthless dictator Lungu and his accomplices.
    It is time when the state house occupants and their families and friends and accomplices feed each other with cake, wine and dine while those who dance for them go without a decent meal. Where is the freedom when your you have your home searched by criminal police. Scrap it!

  13. Every time there is some sort of function they are dancing. The President, the army, the civil servants. I think we need to upgrade the ‘software’ in the Africans. We can surely commemorate the occasion in a decent manner. There is more to life than eating and dancing.
