  1. Why was Mutinta HH not invited??
    Ba Ester, first unit with Mutinta, go get Nevers Mumba’s wife and drive together to Mwembeshi prison to visit Pastor Mumba.
    And then give that speech of unity.

  2. Unity, like empowerment, Is not a very neutral action. For example, someone has to be disempowered for another to get empowered. So unite against who?

  3. These useless women who are in their own circles. Go in rural areas and help young girls so they can also succeed in life. Help save a life by giving life in impoverished remote areas where young girls and women are killed by crocodiles because they are fetching water. This is just another social event where the fake all gather to wine and dine! Esther Lungu! There is nothing you do in terms of uplift the lives of the vulnerable especially women and children. What have you done about Kaizer Zulu stripping a female police officer naked? What do you do when we hear of young girls being defiled in the country? General Kanene is still in your circle campaigning for you and your husband. You should be ashamed of yourself! Stop using the vulnerable sector to make you look good!
