    • God help us, why have you allowed such evil people to bring misery to this once peaceful country.
      Here we are after being roundly rejected in the entire Sesheke, the PF is planning to burn the market in the ‘town’ center then blame the opposition.
      A few market traders aligned to PF have been advised to remove their merchandise from the market ahead of the planned torching tonight.
      The idea to burn the market has been authorized by Home Affairs Minister Steven Kapyongo who is camped in the area.
      Meanwhile, relative calm has returned to Sesheke after police and PF thugs failed to intimidate the residents.
      The police and PF have somehow retreated and most PF cadres have crossed into Namibia to shop using violence allowances they were paid yesterday.
      Meanwhile, the UPND took advantage…

  2. Icalo cesu kuwayawayafye mwe. Please people if Zambia advise our government to improve on electoral processes before the next elections. I am so shocked to find out that here in Nigeria the population is close to 300 000 000(million) and the vote one day and count in two days and announce the elections on the third day. No compromise! Is it not the same Africa we are in? Our population is not even up to 15 000 000(million). Bushe bututu or we don’t know how to count? Zambia as country is just like the smallest state(Province) in Nigeria. Whats wrong with us? Other thing is to improve the social warefare of our people, please we are not poorat our people can be failito meet the demands of having three meals a day. Corruption also is at rumpant. Please advise. In my view, there is nothing…

  3. Somethings are better left unsaid unless it’s Tshisekedi who requested the meeting,it could have helped to stay away from him than congratulating him without conviction and inviting him to visit after skipping you in invitations to his innuagaration in his tour of neighbors.Shame,shame,..no statesmanship,no quality!!

  4. Ba Lungu I know Felix from Kraainem area. He is a rich kid probably not corrupt. Right now he’s troubled by being a president for an election he never won. In the picture: ba Lungu always leaning towards the other. This public display of hypocrisy of humbleness not fair. Nevertheless, at the moment we only have Ba Lungu for 2021.

  5. Bwana Lungu this Tshisekedi president has already made known which regional allies he values by making official visits to Kenya ,Angola and Republic of Congo . Too late you ruined relations by calling for a GNU after their elections.

    • What he did as Chairperson for Politics,Defence and Security was ok but he seemed to have overlooked certain procedures by issuing a statement through Amos Chanda instead of channelling it through SADC as a communique with endorsement from other Heads of State or their Foreign Affairs Ministers.Everything looked personalized as coming from one man in Zambia!!Shame,shame…!!

  7. Trying to mend fences now after realizing the person he backed with a view to getting a few deals and even giving him a zambian diplomatic passport one Katumbi who was part of fayulu coalition is not going to have any influence in DRC because their candidate was not the one declared winner.

  8. Virtually all significant goods and support for Congos’s mining passes through Zambia. Zambia has the stranglehold on Congo. Good that ECL helped Felix get over his sulk of opting to visit Kenya among other unuseful countries to Congo first, by inviting him when it’s him who should have requested.

  10. ….or just to make easier for your lazy trib.al brain, please suggest tangible improvements on what we have allready in place until 2021. Please let’s not encourage Trib.al Hacks to hallucinate that he IS the President whenever he is in Sisheke or Mongu. Please help your trib.al, he needs it more than your so called lazy Lungu. For me any non-trib.al is better than any trib.al. Given a choice on the Ballot, I think even a frog is better than a trib.al, and all Zambians agree with me.

  11. And political failures aka trib.als condemning others, even when their trib.als have castrated democracy by refusing to hold a convention and instead insisting that it was time for their trib.al to rule. Regardless of what the constitution says. You trib.als, can you first remove the log in your eyes before you even participate in any discourse on democracy and elections.
    Starting point is to acquire additional brain cells from your current amoeba like one cell.
