    • @1. You full, your ediotic tribal comments are the last thing we need here. Just grow up already and stop being the village ediot here. Am not tonga but your attack and hatred for tonga’s won’t make you a better person.

  1. Your observation is on point but your language is not right either boss. Let’s correct our erring brothers in love then they will hear you and adjust.

    • @Bupe, I beg to differ, Some one got to do he’s Mother a favor and let “Oval Head” know he’s an ediot. Once Oval Head fully understands himself he will be careful with what he types.

  2. Why are Zambians so obsessed with titles? Eng. Ferguson? Zambia is probably the only country in the world in which Eng. is a title. Poor Mr. Ferguson had probably never referred to himself as Eng. Ferguson. Quite silly really…

  3. You don’t know what you are talking about! Nigerians are numero uno in terms loving titles. You will find someone with Engineer Chief Something and so on!
