  1. Zambian leaders you really disgust me, how do you even call reporters to show that you have bought a tipper truck!!!?? That’s just your normal job, its like you buy a bin in the house and you expect an applaud from you children and wife!!!
    You must be ashamed of you selves for buying the tipper so late.
    I even wonder if the are bins in mongu town!!

  2. mmmmmm, K784, 200.80 almost a million, before the kwacha was rebursed this translates to almost a billion for one truck! Who paid for it? Nayaa ineee

  3. Where are you going to get parts for that thing in Lusaka from Mongu…doesnt make economical sense procuring Chinese rubbish!!

    • “blur, blur, blur, BUT,” TONGA TRIBALISM and HANEGATIVES H-at work. Pathetic human being with an evil heart. “He who does not give praise is a son of a witch.”

  4. Buying a ripper truck for a council in zambia is national news? Just like the time they exported honey. Next even filling a pothole on the road will require an official opening.

  5. Honestly, is this news, might as well call the media when a mongu resident buys a car and decides to make it a taxicab. This is truly sad.
