  1. Air Zimbabwe is still operating? Or is it the Presidential jet? After all those years of economic chaos Zimbabwe’s national airline is still there?

  2. Useless corrupt dictators, both of them.

    Cholera out breaks and drastic food shortages with a breakdown of service delivery is what characterises Zimbabwe…but munangagwa seems not to care and it’s bussiness as usual.

    If the problems facing Zimbabwe were experienced in a western country, the president would not travel outside until everything is put in order….

  3. Another time for the Lazy Lungu to shy away from office….I mean how many Head of States go to physically welcome leaders at the airport.

    • Ha Jay Jay, the most negative person on the face of the internet. It’s sad your Tonga comrade HH will never rule Zambia because of how he became president of UPND sidelining the other eligible leaders only because he was Tonga. We will never forget, Ha Jay Jay!

    • Lazy bum illiterate hooligan bully tribal online Mapatizya formula for the tribal gathering son of a polygamist father who never taught him toilet training pooping in public HAGAIN. Need a diaper? HH the thief will NEVER be a president in my lifetime and yours.

    • TRIBALISM never wins. Thank you for helping us know what goes on in the little head of CHILDISH. I love all your postings with Gay Jay and Nose Demon and NEDCOZ Inferiority Complex. It helps us know about your TRIBALISM in your H-organisation and it helps Zambians know you better. I am here to uncode it and I will continue to interpret your hatred of the hard-working president of Zambia who is liked by the majority of Zambians except your clan.

  4. It’s time for a new generation of young, dynamic, visionary African leaders. These here don’t inspire me at all.

  5. While his here let him fill his aircraft with sugar, cooking oil, meal meal, flour, soap, etc etc because just now they are not available in Zimbabwe so he can either go sell them at exorbitant prices or keep them for himself to use in the presidential palace.

    • Laughing at the pain of your friends caused by matters beyond their control is being UNWISE and CHILDISH. Zimbabwe and Zambia are one. Don’t be fooled by language barrier or borders. I am also one with the TONGA. Only, I want them to be SANE and stop the hatred.

    • Zimbabweans please don’t take it to heart! We have a HATRIBES H-ORGANISATION – a clan of NEGATIVITY in Zambia that is led by HHHHHHHHHHH a tribal cult leader. Any NEGATIVE COMMENTS you see are not from Peaceful Zambians you know but come from a group of people with TRIBALISM, FRUSTRATION and HATE for the President because their cult leader had lost the elections FIVE times because he is TRIBAL and UNELECTABLE.

  6. What happened to kamisa. Very childish. Ati I will fix it. I will turn vic falls into LASVEGAS ki ki ki ki

  7. Another vision less leader was in Zim about a week ago, things r bad, mare grapes were $15, this dude hasn’t improved anything since he took over from the other dictator, African leaders are just a disgrace

  8. Another vision less African d!ctator, was in Zim last weekend and things r worse now than ever before, a box of grapes was 15 dollars, nothing has changed since he took over from uncle Bob

  9. It’s better for HH not rule than to have a president an embarrassed to humanity, even going to a a door bouncer at East point he would be off than him, hats off to HH cause he’s not a part of the failed governance pathetic failures (PF)

  10. Welcome to Zambia comrade Mnangangwa!!!As usual Kainde and his tribal creatures camped in regional party UPND wont be part of our celebrations.However,majority Zambians do not care about those minority around Kainde so life shall boom tomorrow together with you Sir!!!
    MAY GOD CONTINUE BLESSING MOTHER ZAMBIA!!

  11. What Zambian independence ? Are we gonna celebrate indebtedness ,cholera , chibolya slums ,Chinese takeover or the financially struggling rural farmers ? Even the kids still learn under trees.

  12. Only fake presidents would turn up. All genuinely elected presidents don’t take Zambia seriously. Next year it will be museveni turning up

  13. He arrived in Lusaka at about.I remember my English teacher in high school who said it should be either at or about.For example,he arrived at 15:30 hours or he arrived about 15:30 hours.

    • You are right @Jayd. This LT journalism is a minefield. Sometimes I gawk – other times I gag. I am assuming that 14:15h was more of an estimate than a definite one – so we shall just say about 14:15h. It’s hectic following up on these guys’ writing styles mwandini…
