  3. Lungu keeps himself busy by visiting numerous nations, yet, Zambia is currently a basket case. It is absolutely disgusting for one of the wealthiest nations on earth to deteriorate to a basket case, whilst the so-called leader does not notice anything wrong. Furthermore, Lungu is known for being a villain who has positioned himself to gain popularity by persecuting a vulnerable wealthy energetic young man (HH). Lungu’s counterparts who espouse ethos of democracy question his autocratic leadership style which is masked by a democratic veil. Lungu keeps on burning expensive jet fuel for absolutely no tangible purpose, yet, an average Zambian in very indigent. Shame. The same indigent Zambians are forcibly bused to attend events where Lungu delivers hollow speeches. Shame

  4. …”existing warm bilateral relations” The never ending excuse to gallivant endlessly for no useful purpose. When he is in the country, he is ‘commissioning’ small projects that are everyday things that need only be overseen by district commissioners or the like. He is hardly at his desk, nor does he present himself to the press to answer issue based questions. What REAL work does Lungu actually do – aside also from persecuting perceived ‘enemies’?

    Zambia and Zimbabwe used to be pretty much one country – Rhodesia. Separated by a natural barrier, the Zambezi, one was Northern Rhodesia, one Southern Rhodesia. Political history determined otherwise, but recent occurrences seem to indicate that the countries have become one entity again – for all the wrong reasons. By MAYNARD MANYOWA.

  6. First published by Khuluma Afrika

    As it stands, both Zambia and Zimbabwe are governed by heartless autocrats who have no respect for human dignity, human rights, rule of law, or other people. The only difference being that one, Robert Mugabe, has already turned his country into a kingdom, where he rules like a glorified sultan, while the other, Edgar Lungu, is tracing Mugabe’s footsteps, in his bid to make himself another primitive king.
