    • Without IMF bailout, these projects are non starters but yet Zambia is ranked 2nd copper producer in the world. True to other people’s words, “The country is ours but the monies from these copper mines isn’t ours – Chalo nichanu, ndalama is ours”.

      Or is it because of misplaced priorities by PF on the expenditures of for example monies collected by ZRA?

      And how much does it cost Zambia to fly that challenger with ECL across African nations?

      Why about the time wasted by civil servants dancing for ECL at the airport?

    • Every day is a holiday in Zambia. The same happens at Zambian embassies. American workers do not observe some of the holidays; but Zambian workers at the Embassy observe Zambian holidays plus all the American holidays.

    • He seems to be everywhere. When does he actually sit to do the actual work in the office.
      He seems to think traveling is working.
      “UKULULUMBA” too much

    • THE COPPERBELT (CB) AND THE KK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS WITH PROPERLY PLANNED PERIPHERAL ATTACHMENTS CAN ACCERALATE AND SET ZAMBIA ON A HUGE TRANSFORMATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND MODERNISATION. EG, THE CB AIRPORT CAN BE CONNECTED WITH HIGH-SPEED MODERN ELECTRIC TRAINS FROM TOWNS SUCH AS SOLWEZI, CHILILABOMBWE, CHINGOLA, MUFULIRA, KITWE FROM THE NORTHERN PART AND KABWE, KAPIRI FROM THE SOUTHER PART. WHILE KK AIPORT CAN BE CONNECT WITH EQUALLY HIGH SPEED TRAINS FROM FEIRA/LUANGWA, CHONGWE AND KAPIRI, KABWE, THROUGH CHISAMBA AND LUSAKA, ETC. THESE PROJECTS CAN BE ACHIEVED THROUGH PPP.

  5. Lungu is a very childish and vindictive little penis. He is so insecure about HH because HH has excelled at everything in comparison. I mean just look at how ugly lungu wife is while HH’s is marvellous looking. Anyway we hope the people on the copperbelt will wake up tomorrow and pour petrol or paraffin all over lungu and burn the rat.

  6. The problem with infrastructure built using Chinese loans is:-

    – 90% of the money does not enter the country
    – 60% of the money that comes in the country is stolen by PF cadres
    – 90% of the contracts are given to chinese companies
    – 90% of the materials are imported from China
    – 75% of the labour-force is chinese
    – 90% of the money is not taxed by ZRA
    – Govt is left with white elephants which they can’t maintain.
    – The white elephants don’t increase the economy activity & raise enough revenue to repay the loans.

  8. HH was President in Namwala? Where did he excel? In Namwala? The level of ignorance in Three Mansion and his supporters is frighteningly high! You can take an Under Five Card supporter to U.S. but you cannot remove ignorance from him!

  11. Lazy Lungu off again …how very convenient having a working holiday on a weekend, I bet you they are more in allowances on weekends when the lazy Sausage is merely partying and campaigning. How many times has this lazy bum travelled just this week. Again tomorrow the defence chiefs and whole cabinet with cadres will go to see off this lazy thing at Lusaka Airport.

    • Are we seriously expecting to develop Zed with this culture of hangers-on ,idlers and officials whose work ethic is more style than substance?
      I can tell ya no developed cuntry has this culture of wasteful BS.

    • Which church does Lungu Edgar belong to? When and Where was he baptized? who is his pastor now and who was his pastor before accidentally landing himself in state house? Keep quiet if you are knowing Lungu today.

  13. THE COUNTRY CANNOT DEVELOP IF PEOPLE LIKE JJ AND NEZ SPEND ALL THEIR TIME BLOGGING INSULTS ONLINE,

    • How long does it take to blog ? These are such miniscule posts people make and I don’t see how they can impact development? How many times does trump tweet ? Is America in regression? Don’t issue statements that have no bearing on an outcome. If Lungu has failed to spur development don’t blame it on a few bloggers.

    • And the country can develop by spending half the day at the airport seeing off a lazy bum flying to Chongwe from Lusaka.

  14. Keeping on working hard Mr Lungu and remain focused. Don’t be distracted by arm chair critics, you’ve proved to be humble & hardworking and that is why God is always on your side (1 Peter 5:6, Psalm 33:12). Make Zambia great again! One Zambia one nation! God bless Zambia!

  17. Give Edgar time to develop the country. Zambians learn to be mature. State house is the highest office of the land.
    The Inferiority complex by HH sympathizers won’t take them anywhere.
