  1. Tamumfwa fye, just stop this. Na Ba Mulongoti should just refuse to go wherever they want to take him. You just buried a Tonga chief, now again a very important figure you took him to same India. Balepwa fye.
    If he had been admitted at Maina Soko nga tabafwile ba Chintu.

    LT or ZAF, care to mention the cause of death? Accident, illness, etc.?

    By the way LT it is called New Delhi (not New Deihl). As a nation it’s about time we strived to deliver anything we do with the highest level of performance and professionalism, that includes writing articles meant for public consumption. Yes one or two errors and mistakes are tolerable, but not constant and consistent errors in almost every article.

    • This is not an official media site. Its called bloggers site. Bloggers careless about what and how you want to hear. In short bloggers are kachepas in other words.

      Mate, not sure what you mean but whether it is a blog or not, doesn’t give them the licence to write errors all the time. I read blogs elsewhere and they rarely make errors.

      Besides I believe LT has now become an official source of news as they don’t write their own opinions but the report on official matters and don’t make up things. Certainly it is my only source of news about what’s happening in Zambia, and I believe many others too. They need to up their game!

    • Some people are too stupid to comment. How can you post stupid comments on such an issue? This is not a political but a funeral platform so mind your speaches.

  8. I write this without scientifically-collected data and so, I do not claim total truth (that is, perhaps things are not as suspicious as they appear to me). Whatever the actual situation, my observation has been that almost everyone I know that has received treatment in India has died either there or shortly upon return to Zambia. It has made me wonder if black Africans are given all attention in Indian health facilities.

    Let us take a look at these:
    – The caste system (ethnic group ranking practice) history of India suggests to me that good enough attention cannot be given to black people.
    – Not all the people working in Indian hospitals are fully trained. For example (in an effort to minimise cost) one eye hospital uses women from surrounding areas to give some amount of…
