  1. Kikiki, it 1st grade comedy. Asking PF govt to help end hunger is like appointing hitler as israeli ambassador.
    They even tax a borehole or well you’ve dug by yourself coz govt has collapsed.
    Next they’ll tax septic tanks.

    • This is a sheer waste of our meagre resources. How much money is going to be spent on this unnecessary trip? Why not take the money and invest it in something meaningful? Reckless spending by Lungu and his gang.

  2. Yes, we end hunger by purchasing expensive aircraft for our V.V.I.P & hide Social Cash transfer funds meant to alleviate hunger & poverty in a Zanaco Bank account, while our most vulnerable & poor learn what hunger & suffering is all about.
    We in P.F care for the suffering masses.

  3. The only challenge facing Zambia is the unprecedented theft by government officials all the way from the top down and misuse of public funds to end hunger. Misplaced priorities such as seen this week, you buy someone who has already pilfered public coffers a house worth $5 mil, for once be serious and stop mocking people. You madam and your crew deserve hell fire kwasila

  4. The Old senile Hen Bo Inonge is simply wasting jet fuel…they are keeping her busy as they dont want her to ask them too many questions!!

  5. Ba LT, first and foremost Thailand does not have a Vice President; It has a prime minister and deputy prime minister. The king of Thailand is the head of state but the Prime minister is the head of government. Its a constitutional monarchy .
    Second and most shocking point is that Hamid Ansari( Mohammad Hamid Ansari) is the FORMER vice -president of INDIA, not Thailand.
    Check your facts so you can keep us better informed.

  6. How can these leaders end hunger when they are just building roads from which they have amassed riches? They just go to these conferences to read speeches, make hefty allowances and come back to sit in their cozy offices and wait for the next trip be it local or international
