  1. Lungu has the easiest job on planet earth! He just sits in the office waiting for AVIC and Chitotela to deliver bribes from construction contracts. When he gets bored, he jumps on a plane to see some drunkard chief. Which president flags off distribution of relief food? Kuti waseka!!

    • Spot on Danielle! The man does nothing! He doesn’t make any decisions, he doesn’t supervise anyone, he has no vision, he doesn’t govern anyone, he never speaks to the people. Nothing! No press conference to address national issues. He just sits and enjoys ill gotten wealth and flies around in planes, gets allowances and “commissions” projects that he has neither conceived nor driven.
      Meantime his corrupt underlings and bootlicker are working overtime to plunder national resources. As long as they give him, Kaiser, Amos and Munir a share of the pounder, it’s all good!

  2. Danielle, which chief? Even if I don’t like or agree to the idea of such an extensive presidential itinerary, respecting elders is still culturally a good thing to observe. Referring to a chief as a drunkard is not part of our culture.

    • Chiefs where responsible for selling our ancestors to Arab and European slave traders. Chiefs where responsible for giving colonialists huge tracts of our land and displacing our ancestors.
      Litunga Lewanika, when he met the queen said to her “my land is your blanket and my people the fleas on it”… this is in the public domain. You can research it…
      Chiefs! Chiefs have been nothing but a curse on Africa! They ruled to satisfy only their greed. They never ruled for the good of the people.
      Mwaata Kazembe was known to cut off people’s ears for silly offences in his chiefdom. You can verify this from David Livingstones journals.
      Chiefs where mostly cruel.greedy men that gave themselves divine status while trampling on their subjects.

    • @The Observer, when you hear Mpezeni is in Lusaka, just pass through the bar at Longacres lodge in the evening. You won’t believe your eyes

    • And what about the ridiculous practice that chiefs owned all the land and they only lent it to the people? Land belongs to the people not to one man.
      Can you tell me even one positive that we have benefited from having chiefs, except the silly notion of “preserving cultural heritage”? Which culture? The culture of child marriage? Of poligamy? Of marrying several young girls to satisfy a chiefs lust? Of ignorance and superstition? Of selling your brothers as slaves for greedy ends? Of being used by politicians? Come on.
      Chiefs are a useless institution. No wonder the Europeans got rid of chieftaincy centuries ago. Everywhere you still have chiefs in the world, there is poverty, ignorance, backwardness and primitive thinking. It’s time we moved beyond this obsolete institution. It…

  3. This thing so called @journeyman!

    why attacking names of chief Mpezeni and Chiti-mukulu?

    Plainly speaking we don’t like the tr.ibal manners of Mukuni.

    Hope you understand.

    • I am Bemba Mr. P. From Mporokoso and Kawambwa. I am actually a descendent of chief Chama in Kawambwa from my grandmother’s side. But that doesn’t blind me to facts.
      Am just stating facts. If you don’t like facts, that’s your problem. You are free to do some research to verify my claims. Insulting me won’t change the facts…
      Also, I have not mentioned chitimukulu. But he is just as bad, as is chief mukuni.
      Cheers mudala.

    • Mr. P….Your assumption that am from chief mukuni’s area simply because I criticise PF also shows you tribal attitude.
      Leave that kind of backward thinking my friend. Have a “Ubuntu” spirit. The reason we are called “bantu” is because we all come from the same origin. That is why we have so many similarities in our languages my friend.
      But above all that we all come from Adam and Eve, and ultimately from God. Your hatred of others based on tribe is shameful ba yama.

  4. President Edgar Lungu will also commission the Kalindawaro Road (Prison Road) in Chipata that has perfectly been completed by Sable Construction Company in a record time- 30 days to fully construct 100KM tared road. Ask mayor Snoya Mwale, he knows how good the road is. Ask Hon Mawere, he will show you clear road markings and signs on the road.

  5. So even mere distribution of relief food to starving communities require an official flagging off ceremony. Does that mean starving families will not get any relief food until the President takes time off his busy schedule to actually go and flag it off?

    • Using a $70 million Gulf Stream to fly to Chipata is like going deep into Kanyama compound with a low Ferrari to buy vegetables and eggs
