  1. There goes another $4 million galavanting while his wife takes 25 people to the USA , all courtesy of the hard hit Zambian tax payer….

    • If SADC is paying for these travells, well and good. If it is Zambians, then they must brace for more or increased taxes consequently a depressed economy.

    • I am really not sure why Ba Edgar is doing this. We started to like him when he came back to help keep Lusaka clean etc. But here we go again, he left us to go to bother Congolese who have strongly said they don’t need help .

    • So all you fenta fenta & your crew that’s been fighting to attend the so called dialogue. Ba President tabalipo. U can all proceed & the President will receive a report for his perusal

    • Only today this morning did Flight 9j-ONE take off from Pretoria ..he has been AWOL for 8 days partying in RSA without shame he is keeping his Chawama wife with pointless trips!!

  2. As he is travelling, somebody please whisper in his ear that there is hunger in Zambia. Please I beg. Also tell him that retirees are not paid, and some retired over 20 years ago. Also let him know that his wife is going to America with 25 souls

    • It’s increasingly becoming a pattern among leaders who have their roots in home affairs ministry’s. Listening and dialogue is not in them, look Teresa May she never listened, even after the historical loss she is still in dinial. Emmerson Mnangagwa is contained with his die hard sycophants from engaging in conduct that will be attributed to him in both local courts and International courts of justice. He has chosen tripes over resolving the fuel increment crises which has resulted in lose of lives and clamp down.
      Our own EL, continues to throw the cane down the road over dialogue, hoping nature will take care. Politics are tidal, you will wish you had provided leadership when it’s too late.

  3. This the first time SADKI meeting to be held outside the region. I never knew that Ethiopia is in southern Africa. I can smell fish here.

  4. He has been in South Africa (presumably) since the 8th of January to meet the President of SA for a couple of hours and a day or so for a medical review. Any further news as to what he was doing for the rest of the time?

  5. People can’t protest or speak out even when all of us have seen and heard it all: ambulances, fire tenders, maize scandals, etc. Those arresting those peacefully and honestly protesting are also feeling it but yet pretending. Anyway hardships will teach us the hard way…. Unless we learn to act. This is our beloved country all of us and yet we are seeing it being sold, being ripped apart, looting of public funds everywhere, and yet wearing 2021 fimo fimo tshirts…

  6. The president is not for local news only, he also presides on international affairs. You quacks you always wish it was you in the forefront. Ma Rubbish.

  7. Pictures please or is he very sick that you can’t even take photo’s, I know that fcuker was in eswatini uku kosha efumo

  8. So you mean all this time he has been checking on his mansion in eswatini. How long staying abroad on tax payers expense.

  9. DONT WORRY OF TAX Payers money it WAS ON THE PRESIDENT THE STATE HOUSE SENIOR PRIVATE SECRETARY DANIEL SIWO (WHO IS UNDER PRESIDENTS PAY ROLL) SO REALLY NOTHING MUCH TO TALK ABOUT , ECL IS HEAD OF POLITICS PEACE AND SECURITY HENCE THE NEED TO GO TO ETHIOPIA DISCUS WITH AU WHAT SADC HAS DECIDED ON DRC INCASE THEY NEEN TROOPS FROM ECOWAS EAR AND SOMALIA

  10. And at last the moron shows up, there must be something very secretive he was doing, maybe over seeing the construction of his Eswatini mansion and paying damages for that girl he has impregnated, aba Bena chipuba,menomeno, bwafya….. I see he doesn’t want to b seen with dirty Esther any more

  11. Sometimes you wish Mwanawasa was still around… Or never died all these things would not have been so. Cry the beloved country Zambia.

    • He will simply wave goodbye to you docile foooools and wish you well as he flies over Mafinga Hills…one wonders why this utterly work shy moron wants to stand in 2021..its beggars believe. He just passes time farting and trying on suits and what luxury to spend our money with out any shame.

  12. Out of 365 days in a year, how many days does our President stay in Zambia? No wonder Zambia seems to be lost as it is on auto pilot.
