  1. When is Lungu arriving back to Chibolya and Kalingalinga to see the poverty and hopelessness he presides over?

  2. What time did he arrive? Did Bowman make it to KKIA that early?
    Anyway it is good that they did not have to disrupt us with traffic jams this morning. This is as it should be.
    In fact I now propose that the President travels only in the early hours or late at night when our traffic is minimal.

  5. I AM STILL DISAPPOINTED WITH ZNBC. DO THEY DO SERIOUS INVESTIGATIONS AND FIND OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THEM? YOUR OWN HEAD OF STATE HAS ARRIVED. AND YET YOU ARE REPORTING TO US THAT HE IS YET TO ARRIVE. ?????? SOMEONE MUST BE FIRED AT ZNBC FOR GIVING US WRONG STORIES.

  6. Amos Chanda said that if IMF delays approving the $1.3 Billion Loan they will get a Cash Bailout from China. Was Lungu given a Cash Bailout by China amounting to $1.3 Billion?

    • This is so wrong. Zambia has not been auctioned. For that to happen, there would have been some form of bids from other countries. Zambia has been given away to China like a child bride to an abusive, middle aged man.

  7. Well come back your excellency but handle Chinese investors with caution, not everyone of them means well. On the other hand, can we stop selling land to them but instead partner with them?

  8. As much as they travel, they need to invest in a bigger and new Presidential plane. This habit of Chartering aircrafts is too expensive for a broke country like Zambia.

  9. Welcome back your Excellence. I want to report that generally all is well except for the gossip that you have borrowed to unacceptable levels on behalf of the Nation. Please put us in the clear. I do not think you can get to those said levels while you enjoy advice from the best there is in terms of economic advice both from within and outside your Government.
