    • Shameless
      Leaders with questionable democratic credentials, some under state capture and political killings ....meeting to review fact finding mission outcome of killing of some military guy in Lesotho. What do you think will ever come out of this ???? I challenge anyone who thinks something progress will be achieved. Especially humbly dumbly is a timid coward.

    How does Sadist and Dictator Lungu become part of the murder solution in Lesotho after jailing HH for 127 days. SADC is a joke and a Club of Dictators. Lungu was never declared the Winner of the 2016 by Concourt so on what basis is SADC recognising him without Petition Hearing and Concourt Validation Certificate? The Kenyan Precedent has rubbished and discredited International Foreign Observers Validation of Election. Lungu is an illegitimate President who was not democratically,legally and Constitutionally elected President.SADC should take note of Election devts in Kenya. SADC Qiuet Diplomacy is shielding Dictators in the Region.
      Stories have emerged that that the judge who overturned the elections victory was bribed. To educate you the concourt is not mandated to declare any winner. It hears the petition and make a ruling within 14 days based on the substantial evidence brought before it. Yowa tribal leader failed to bring any evidence within that 14days period and the case was closed like it never was presented there and the status cuo maintained. If you want since you're under5s you bring that petition again in 2021.

    Funds for international travels are always available but we have some pensioners who have been chasing after their meagre terminal benefits for several years in vain. Some are even jumping to their deaths from tall buildings out of desperation and frustration. God help us!

      The trips are unproductive waste of Zambian tax payers money. Jonathan is a "waster"He's only visiting Zambia to officiate for unbudgeted building projects-money stealing tricks. And for your own information, we all know who's heading to prison when out of office.
