    • Here we go again, immpullti issula…
      And PF continues to deny dictatorship.
      All reasons given by Edgar’s cousin from Petauke, Dora, are same reasons North Korea uses.
      Nakachinda and Sunday Chanda has just been in some west African country for some Patriotic theories.

    • The PF regime do things we are not even familiar with in Zambia …. this has a Mugabe Zimbabwe feel to it

    • EVEN THEN THERE IS NO ZAMBIAN WHO IS TRULY A ZAMBIAN. EG, THE BEMBAS AND LOZIS COME FROM THE CONGO DRIRECTION. THE BEMBA PEOPLE CAME THROUGH CONGO FROM SUDAN IN SEARCH OF GRAZING LAND AND AFTER DISPUTES OR DISAGREEMENTS WITH THE LEFT BEHIND GROUP. THE SO CALLED NGONIS RAN AWAY FROM SHAKA ZULU WHO WAS KILLING AND CHASING AWAY FEEBLE MEMBERS OF THE ZULUS. PROBABLY THE FIRST BANTU PEOPLE TO SETTLE IN ZAMBIA- THE TONGAS WERE ALSO CHASED FROM ZIMBABWE TO COME AND SETTLE IN THE COUNTRY NOW CALLED ZAMBIA. THE FACT THEY NEVER LOST ALL THEIR ANIMALS THROUGH TSETSE FLIES OR DISEASES MEANS THAT THEY NEVER TRAVELLED A LONG DISTANCE FROM WHERE THEY CAME- WHICH IS ZIMBABWE. OTHER GROUPS CAME FROM MOZAMBIQUE, ANGOLA, NAMIBIA AND TANZANIA. THE STORY OF, THIS OR THAT PRESIDENT IS AS BORING AND OLD AS…

    • …THE STORY OF, THIS OR THAT PRESIDENT IS AS BORING AND OLD AS ZAMBIA ITSELF. BEMBAS ARE EVEN THE MOST UNFORTUNATE WITH THIS STORY. EVERY BEMBA WHO IS GOING TO RULE ZAMBIA WILL EVER COME FROM CONGO. GUYS GET ON WITH REALITY. WINNING PRESIDENCY IS THROUGH A BALLOT BOX NOT FINGER-POINTING OR PETITIONS.

    • Disappointing that Dora, A Journalist herself would tolerate such nonsense. What’s wrong with them Covering the event. This shows stupidity

  1. “The GRZ does not permit foreign politicians to participate in internal politics” this statement is hypothetical. A few months ago we had youths of foreign political parties come into Zambia saying a lot of good about Ecl and Pf, but no spokes said we don’t allow foreign politicians. The Hon Minister is showing double standards. And which law says friends and other foreign politicians are not allowed to attend a mere launch of a party. This is mere abuse of authority.

  3. And what’s wrong with that Jesus Christ…what’s wrong with you paranoid freaks…(PF) get together you are embarrassing your selves.

  4. Lungu and kapoyongo seeing shadows every where……..

    Iwe kapoyongo , your boss is about to be impeached impart for you burning markets and other places to justify 42/42….uza ululla, lindila….

  5. Zambian JOURNOS DONT COVER SOUTH AFRICAN POLITICAL EVENTS. WHERE IN THE WORLD. THAT IS WHY WE USE CORRESPONDENTS.

    • If that were the rule, there would be no Dan Fathers and Amanpours of this world. Very narrow mindedness.

  6. I dont know how long you will hold on to your fears. Fear produces results as Job in the bible stated that “the thing I feared has befallen me”.

    What you fear will show up!

  7. Pf r just useless and most of them are carders they have no respect for the rule of law.and they are afraid of UPND and wat is coming on there way.impeach the koswee

  8. I feel like taking a shower after looking at photo of this woman, she insulted Sata and now she is enjoying the fruits of what Sata and Guy Scott built over many years. Sad!

  9. One has to address the root cause and not just symptoms. In Zambia people act intrinsically without thinking through stuff. Many don’t even know how this is connected to education and political leadership. We have had a period I guess like 2-3 decades of useless or no proper education and leadership in Zambia . Now we are reaping what we sowed. Raw and unworthy individuals in sensitive positions in the civil service, in government etc basically everywhere. In my mind these consequences are proof of the importance of education and proper political leadership for the good of humanity. Until we get a window of opportunity with a good leader , our country and its people will remain doomed!

  10. Bashi Mulongoti please say something about what the nsenga chiefs have said over President Lungu’s parentage. What research did you make for you to come with the conclusion that ECL came from Malawi. This is becoming very interesting indeed. Can you please invite the chiefs to Camnet or diamond tv for a debate so that we can be told the true cos you have said a lot over this issue. Please don’t back down.

  11. Deportations unnecessary, such decisions motivated by shear political stress which has generated unknown fears in the ruling MMD.

  12. Mantha ayo! Kikiki, it is just like ECL travelling to the inaugurations of Presidents in other countries!

  13. they should deport ECL when goes to inaugurations to foreign countries. He is a liability. Honestly what can anyone learn from him?

  14. UPND SHOULD PRAY THAT MMEMBE DOES NOT SUCCEED WITH HIS PARTY. IT WILL SPLIT THE VOTES IN WESTERN
    PROVINCE. HE IS HALF LOZI. AND ALSO RELATED TO THE VEEP ( INONGE WINA )

  15. Country men and women especially those who feel are learned. Let us not politicize everything. Immigration laws a policy of each country world wide. Journalists world wide are aware that when you go and cover an event in another country ,you need accreditation. Membe himself knows this. If you invite people from outside your country, prior authority is supposed to be saught. Even in your own home you can’t just bring visitors for lunch without infoing your wife. You can either call your wife or whoever is it home that you are coming with so and so for lunch. The problem in Zambia now is that, whatever the GRZ does is wrong and whatever the opposition does is right. Let’s look at thongs critical.

  16. Mmembe has come to replace upnd who will be deregistered for not winning elections for 3 elections and not having internal elections in there party to me its good to give chance to us not just same chikasa see the other one mbuti bass
    Let’s move zed from primitive politics of destruction to development

  17. This is madness of the highest degree. What are you afraid of? Pathetic Failures PF you are a disgraced party. How can you deport Journalists for coming to cover the launch a an Opposition Political Party?

  18. @20 INDEPENDENT OBSERVER. You are on point. That’s why multiplication of political parties always works to the advantage of the ruling party. With Kalaba about to form his own, there will be one more. In 2001, MMD should have been kicked out but there were too many political parties. 2021 will be a repeat of 2001. Do not say you were not warned.
