    • The ECL/HH debacle has been the most has been the most trying political time in the history of Zambia. God forbid!

    • The president is childish

      Cadres are childish.

      According to upendi thats a best thing one can ever say.

    • Then pardon HH or disband that gang waiting for him on Wednesday. In HH’s bio, Chieftain Choongo is his mother’s sister.
      Maybe she died of heartbreak of her nephew’s tomentations.

  1. #1 Analyser, oh yes he has relatives, many, but maybe he does not want publicity, unlike many politicians. But again I have not heard of trib.al Hacks attending a family funeral, does he have relatives? But for him maybe there is value attending a poor relative’s funeral, he can’t find any publicity or political mileage, yoh know our trib.al Hacks and the thing he values most, to be admired and to dream of being in state house. He gets a lot of that from his trib.al region though.

    • Those are private and personal activities which one can attend to without attracting public attention.

  2. What proof do you have that zaffico has been sold to Chinese

    Answer: I did not incite anybody

    According to upendi thats a clever answer and they clap hands

    Anything spoke against there leader is blasphemy. The view him like prophet Muhammad.

    • Lungu: I will create 500,000 jobs in 2016..

      Come 2016….

      Opposition: where are the 500,000 jobs you promised Mr president ??

      Lungu: I have them black mountain…..

      Come black mountain disaster

      Lungu under cover, nowhere to be seen.

      Citizens: can we have a press conference from the president ??

      Citizens: Mr president ??

      Opposition: mr president ???

      Only for Lungu to be seen on the airport runway

  3. ECL president for all including Halloween Halloween. This is what a president for all can do. We love you ECL. The satan1$t is a shame to this country.

  4. Remember Last East last year, Lungu arrested HH during eater ( Good Friday), It was this time Lungu went midnight to attack an innocent soul in his home with his soldiers and police officers who even sheeted inside HH’s house, last 18th October, after devil’s prayer and fasting, Lungu tried to sacrifice an innocent Pastor for nothing but he was embarrassed, this time around when people are talking about Independence and end of world war 2 marking 100 years celebrations, Lungu plans to sacrifice HH as a way of shedding blood.
    Truly speaking who is Lungu. Is he a believer or hypocrite? People must judge themselves and know the true colors of what he is after.
