  1. It’s 2018 for God’s sake. I feel so sad that we have people like kci who still have medieval era mentality. They believe so much in superstition. These are the type who think anyone who is seemingly doing fine economically is a satanist. How sad. RIP Mrs Malila

  2. Is God willing to prevent death, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
    First of all, God created reality, and he is supposedly omnipotent. Secondly, free will of someone who only wants to murder, kidnap and rape seriously infringes of their victims’ free will.The first point is correct but not sure how it says anything important. The second point is wrong. Doing something against someone’s free will is not a violation of free will but a violation of rights.
    This is where fiction comes in. God is supposed to be perfect, but he’s a representation of a mass genocide murderer. You might say, we don’t know why God works but…

  5. Too sad indeed!!
    This is the reason why MPs should have retained a clause in our new constitution which allowed a person who can out second during general elections to take over unlike having by elections very often.Death is part of our lives,so MPs must not take it for granted that all elected leaders shall make it to next general elections!!!as a country,we continue wasting our limited recources on by elections which can be avoided atleast for 5 years!!Our MPs are really a waste.As for UPND MPs,all they know is walking out of parliament or blocking all progressive bills from PF Govnt-what a shame!!!Please you dull MPs amend the constitution to have runners up during general elections take over once one dies so that our money can be spared!!
    RIP Mrs Maria Malila!!

    • @Njimbu
      Allowing a candidate who emerged 2nd to take over in an event of death or resignation could be a source of problems. In our environment where politicians from both ruling and opposition have an insatiable appetite for violence, what could prevent a loser from killing the victor so that they take over?

    • Njimbu: Instead of the second taking over, how about letting the Party of the late provide us a replacement.

    • Then every one that comes second gets tempted to murder the position holder or his cronies murders the first person. where is it going to end?

  6. Sad may hsrip. Just noticed one thing that the wife is a top Upnd official and the husband is a Supreme Court Judge. Why do Upnd say that the courts are PF when they indirectly have a strong member on the bench. With due respect to the departed.

  7. Most UPND zealots don’t believe in God. Many believe he doesn’t exist. Some, even Dorcases, hate the President! Whom do you think they serve?
