  2. You guys are doing a great job for Zambia! Kindly stay focused and never listed to Hatribes Utd and their stinking tribalism. UPND has nothing to offer but hate. Keep developing it! It will NEVER be president.

  3. This woman will stay till 2021 when Parliament closes from Presidential elections and has court case will be pending and Maggies as well that’s how useless our constitution is …we need deadlines on these cases!!

  4. You’re doing great when it comes to education.Please we need science and technology in this country to move foward.U can also think of increasing salaries of teachers and lecturers who teach mathmatics,sciences and computer sciences.Come up with policies to encourage young pipo to do science and technologies)computer science related courses otherwise we gonna have a cabinet which will sell the country in future.If pipo are educated u can’t sell yo country with your own money.Money is composed of animals,precious stone and land.What we are using are papers and the country cant sell animals,land,minerals and water in exchange with fake papers(dollas).Please we need educated ministers like u to lead us otherwise Zambian can be sold to foreigners.
