      You are forgetting the leading “light” of the PF “intelligentsia” (LOL) whose comments are insult to any civilized person. As much as he is sufferer of genetically induced 1mbecility, never-the-less, his parrot like comments based on tribe, age, gender and imaginary evidence are clear symptoms of the general state of mind of paid-up parasitic segment of PF sympathizers.
      Therefor my vote goes to Terrible

    • HH should blame either the voter or himself, w
      In the 2016 elections.

      ECZ is just a facilitator, not a voter. When you lose, the voter is responsible for that determination, and not ECZ, and not the winner.

      Blaming ECZ and the winner is disorganised thinking.

      It is like hating your classmate for passing ‘number one’ when you fail the exam. This is also uncoordinated thinking.

      After a loss of one month salary the UPND now confess that at the time the boycotted the opening of parley in 2016, they did not have the interest of the nation.

      Suddenly, the UPND MPs have the interest of the nation through the power of suspension.

      Thanks to the wisdom of the able speaker. He was right, they did not do things in national interest but their own, which they have now admitted by…

  1. 1.1 Obatala, I vote under5, he was appointed to succeed Mazoka because the next President of Zambia had to be a select tribe at all costs.

  2. Funny how your colleagues are accusing PF of using violence to win the just ended elections and here we’re told your party caused colossal damage to property and the FDD. For your information I’m not tribal but just state the fact where as you want to pretend that all is okay.

  3. As for the judgement, we have a by election in Namwala. Unless you are a UPN.Donkey who did not “see” the injuried suffered by the FDD candidate. She was in hospital while the female Donkey was campaigning freely unimpeded. Let justice be done.
    By the way, is this not the same area where after the elections ethnic cleansing Rwanda style was practiced?

  4. Pipo that refer to ethnic cleansing are not promoting zambia in any way whatsoever. This is done by terrible, et al to paint a picture to the internationsl community.. i tbink there are enough diplomats from lverseas in zambia to report how they see it rather than rely on politically motivated individuals

  5. @5 Masalamuso, I am addressing you UPN.Donkeys in all my posts. “International ego” and playing to the international gallery is beneath me, it’s for your under5 and his …Donkeys. Who flirts with Maimane, Terrible or Under5?

  6. ..and what do you UPN.Donkeys say about the torching of villages for people of the “wrong tribe” in the “wrong area” by the “right tribe”?
    It happened, we saw it, you can not bury it away, just as you cannot bury away the selection of under5 to succeed Mazoka.

    In fact that selection was the genesis of all the evil things that we have seen in this otherwise peaceful country in recent years of UP.NDonkeys. Acknowledging, discussing and resolving that openly by UP.NDonkeys themselves first and foremost should be the basis of any dialogue facilitated by Commonwealth. Everything else is secondary.
    …Donkeys could not even allow their “vice president” to act for under5 even for five minutes. The fact guy had to pretend to be flying all the show seeking medical treatment, but in…

  7. Bitterness is a sickness …with all your rants i have not seen one piece of evidence. As i have posted to you specifically on many occassions i am apolitical and pro zambia…your vile rants dont effect me but only go to show to the world the type of person you are and the vnegative effect you are having on your preffered political party.
    Terrible is a term used to describe little boys with bad manners and behaviour. If you look at the use of that name by you from a psychological point of view u have probably chosen it to inflate your ego to intimidate others, much how bullies behave. Cheers my naughty little boy

  8. …Donkeys could not even allow their “vice president” to act for under5 even for five minutes. The fat guy had to pretend to be flying all over the show seeking medtical treatment, but in reality seeking to hide his embarrassment!! We read in history books that in the pre independence nationalist days Mainza Chona acted while waiting for Kaunda to be released from prison….civilised parties do that all the tine without a wink, it is even in their constitutions……….kikikikikikikiki

  9. This judgment will dilute all the accusations about electoral violence upnd have used as a reason for their lose before the commonwealth man. Gambari will now see the true colors of this bloody thirsty party. Judgement will come at a right time for the world to see who they really are. This should even be news at sabc.

  10. Actually, the judgment is long overdue. In mature democracies Lubhezi Moono could not even be sitting in parliament today.

  12. Kikikikikikiki….you guys are funny…kikikiki

    On a serious note, this is a case that did not need to last to this day, one year after. I agree with @13 zedoc, in fact I think that “hon” Lubezhi should have been jailed the same day she took plea, deep down her heart she knows it and has been waiting. If she was an honest UPN.Donkey “honourable”, she should have admitted on moral grounds but how many of us would admit our way into shame and jail anyway? Not least a U.PNDonkey…kikikikikikikiki

  13. Namwala District where someone must be installed as Paramount Chief HH of the Namwala people and must stop pretending he is a national leader! He needs to start at the section level, become a branch chairman or maybe a youth leader, then run as an MP. He has no CV to start trying the highest office in the land! He is just wasting time!

  14. @ no.1, I think they didn’t know! They either thought they were PF or were “AntiHH!” Ignorance in this party is appalling! To date, they believe they won the elections!

  16. Zambian Judiciary really take too long in giving justice. Unacceptable in serious assault, criminal cases and especially, political violence.
