    • The cholera situation is a good measure of the PF chipantepante koswe mumpoto approach to governance. It is time for people in compounds to hold their leaders accountable. Was it correct for Edgar and his friends to spend $42 million on fire tenders. Half this money would have provided for a safe water reticulation system in Kanyama.

  2. But they can congregate in bars to drive the economy of the country. What hypocrisy is this? God can not be mocked.
    They day of reckoning is near.

    • Have you ever heard the scripture: ” For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
      These words Christ did utter in Matthew 18:20, telling us that it is not about large crowds and huge gatherings, it’s all about your personal committment to God.

    • You would do better to refrain from these tribal remarks! We’ve got better things to do than judging each other on the basis of our ethnic background all day.

  4. #3 you seem to forget that GBM is your vice president and running mate. Or are you confirming that GBM is just window dressing, a cosmetic to try and quench the tribal stench in upndees?

  7. Upndees, don’t work yourself out of steam and out of words, we have a more juicy agenda for today for to comment on for the next few days. Have you forgotten that our beloved President His Excellency your favourite topic is visiting Muchinga beginning today? Please keep up the free publicity and free campaign for our Edgar, now even the people in the 3.5 regional magic number know him, thinking “oh yaa this President is a good man if these people our so called leaders hate him so much, next elections all of us here in the 3.5 regions will vote for him and see what happens”.

  8. Oh sorry Madam Hon Reverend Sumaili, I meant to greet you first but had to deal with these upndees first. You are a very motherly figure compared to Madam Nalumango. For sure even upndees must agree with me that Hon Nalumango is more like a upndee opposition politician, no inspiration at all, the only good thing is that she does not insult like her bosses or Gary Nkombo, where does she come from? She can’t be from the 3.5 regions surely? Impossible!

    • She is Bemba from Kaputa married to a Lozi…Former Headmistress,Former Minister of Information and indeed was a cunning Chief Govt Spokesperson like Kambwili and lastly Former Deputy Speaker at Parliament…before being co-opted in the UPND she lost her Kaputa seat while as Deputy Speaker to PF New comer in 2011 hence her frustrations against the PF…

  9. What happened to the week of prayer? No rains and still recording Cholera cases. Effective prayers should have made it possible for people to congregate after a successful WOP. This is why us who care to use our brains don’t believe in state sanctioned religion! It is fake and done for political expedience! Reminds me of The biblical contest between the the state’s 450 prophets of baal against a lone prophet of God, Elijah on mount carmel (1 Kings 18:16-45).

  13. Are people in these Compounds still alive? Very little economic activity = no food. Is curfew lifted now?
    All alive people are vaccinated and all exit and entry points have hand wash basins, observation points and/or screening systems.
    It must be tough for our brothers and sisters.
    Almost done, please be patient and cooperative with authorities so we return to 100% normal.
    ONE MORE WEEK!

  15. There goes Godfridah, just “eating” taxpayers money, while she heads a useless superstitious ministry, that does NOT add value to the nation whatsoever, except her own belly.
    Chakolwa Chagwa should have made this Godfridah his minister of Taverns & drunken affairs @ Chawama his tavern, or dodgy Casino’s, & paid her from his own pocket.
    WHAT A WASTEFUL PRESIDENT, & GOVERNMENT!!

  16. At least Vincent Mwale has allowed bars to operate, it’s a bold decision that night women have applauded. Pastors are out of business
