    • She was one of the architect of the Wako-ni-Wako” tribalistic movement that saw Easterners rallying behind Lungu & ended up in a merger of RB’s MMD & PF whilst other tribes were retired from civil service “under national interest” & replaced by their relatives.

      They then taught Lungu how to steal through loans for roads & other projects making him one of the richest zambian in 3 years whilst turning Zambia into the most indebted countries & worst performing EURO-Bonds.

      Anyway MHSRIP.

    • Three days of national morning from lazy Lungu .For waht ?!Some people need to get a life and learn what to work not pretending to be working .Let us give him credit though for cutting down on unnecessary air mile he put in last year espcially to Swaziland to see semi naked girls and to learn how to grow crops .Zambia deserves better .

  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.

  3. “Why won’t God heal amputees & people with HIV AIDS like Victoria?”
    God truly is a fnckn jerk. Why did he create some people to be born with disabilities – especially genetic problems – or deformed bodies? If he was so powerful, surely he would be able to prevent this or at least create everyone without these problems?
    Summarizing, here is what Jesus promised:
    If you ask anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:14)..Ask, and it will be given you. (Matthew 7:7)
    God answers prayers as promised in the Bible, and if God is performing all of the medical miracles that we read about in inspirational literature, then God should also be restoring amputated limbs. Why would God help cancer victims (e.g. Marilyn Hickey’s mother) and people bitten by rabid bats (e.g. Jeanna Giese), but…

    • CONT’D…
      (e.g. Jeanna Giese), but discriminate against amputees and Victoria Kalima who died from HIV AIDS? No one God either has never healed an amputee at in the history of the world.

  8. i would like to convey my heartfelt condolences to the PF for the demise of Ms Victoria Kalima. Ms Victoria was noble lady who was always available for the people of Kasenengwa. She was the voice of the voiceless. May the lord comfort her family as they pass through this trying moment.

    Condolences to the good people of Kasenengwa.

  10. Yes we need to mourn the departed but 3 days is quite long for a Minister. A day would have been enough. What matters is not how we mourn but how we honored and related with a person when they were alive!

  11. MHSRIP.
    For this administration it appears everything is wrong.Is a cabinet minister entitled to that period of mourning?The annoying thing is that it is the same administration that produced a circular on guidelines of state funerals.

  13. Its time government stopped harassing the entertainment industry in the name of national mourning.
    “all radio and television stations will play solemn music from 06:00 Hours to 18:00 Hours everyday.”
    Why not restrict this decree to your own state broadcaster, DeadNBC ? Every other industry will be working normally so why single out entertainment? Will the govt cover their losses? LAZ is this constitutional?
