    • It can be great if Gary joined PF, he will make an outstanding minister of National Planning and Development.

    • He went away because it began getting hotter near him. I am waiting for the time where his little god seats to begin getting hotter too. When you like blood you NEVER have all days free without your seat getting hotter one day.

    • Prof Hanshoni must be the first to join PF first. Maybe he can dump his tribalism which education could not wash away.

  2. Mr Litete is just playing a tactical game…falling short to mention someone who should have stepped down voluntarily.

      He implies the party head is undemocratic.

  3. Too much emphasis on the fact that a Tonga has given way to a Lozi and a Kalubale is a deputy thereby the party cuts across all Zambian tribes. Unfortunately, all this is cosmetic. Story izibika kudala!

  5. Thought he resigned because of the warn and caution which he knew was coming. The trib.als think that they are smart and sophisticated but actually to norm.al Zambians they are like the naked emperor.

  6. Its funny those talking about tribal issues are pointing at others being tribal but them. Zambia where are we going with this tribal nonsense. We are one people why are we allowing party issues to divide us by region. We can certainly walk together in diversity. When someone just makes a comment that doesnt suit you they are tribal. What animal is this that separates us instead of talking of development. So what if Garry has Presidential ambitions, it just that we are so undemocratic that in any of our parties leaders are hanging to their positions and if anyone says anything we all jump at them. Ba Zambia lets behave ourselves. Leave Garry alone he has resigned on his own free will and for that matter was he making money in that position. He was serving freely. Let him serve in…
