  1. AFDB given some land so that they can be closer to rape and indebt us? You can’t invite a rapist to your bedroom mwaiche.

    • Where are we with the following scandals?

      -fire truck $42 Million
      -Kampamba Mulenga and Mwalilino trading votes
      -ECL breaking the law

    • Koma you’ve pointed out something very important. Seems we’re never at the forefront of anything. Other countries can learn from us about falling off the pace for development.

  2. Does AfB give free loans at 0% APR….what is wrong with these utterly reckless fooools…the Bank is making money from you and you decide to give free prime land in Lusaka instead of letting LCC benefit…

  3. I hope they are paying for this land.
    How much have they paid ?
    Land has value.We should not be saying Government has given land-we should be
    talking about sellling

  4. Why is it so easy for foreigners to obtain land in Zambia while us citizens can’t? What’s the value of independence if we can’t own our own Land?
