  1. Arrest them …. no one from eastern, muchinga ,luapula and northern…..
    Arrest Mushota and munone, terrible, Richard sakala and his brother….
    Even Tasila Lungu… I forget…. she is building flats along Kalomo road

    • What is K12,459 euros? Kikiki pf journalism, just checking the mwaliteta court case in progress , the usual state fimofimo incompetence.

    • But why the cases are so old, including Chituwo in 2012, that’s why everything is between dates unknown.
      ACC is worse than courts…. Too slow, like singing Zambia national anthem.

    • Kikiki, even deadNBC is still analog, when others have gone HD. the Zambia vs mocabique game on deadNBC was looking so grayish more less like black and white, but on Supersport it was marvelously HD.

  2. I thought that they were arrested for giving the country too little or too much rain or for the extreme cold weather experienced this year.

  3. My word, I have never seen K12, 459 Euros… Can someone tell me the existence of this composite currency.

  4. ACC should also follow Akufuna. I hear he resigned from ECZ..kkkkk. They can not follow those liked unless retired weak chaps…kkk

  5. Three of them were on contract just to steal….and make life hard for hardworking staff who are not in good books with….
