  2. I can excuse Mwamba for saying this bcoz he is not a driver of policy implementation back home!! However,he needs to preach that to his leaders who have been giving away put resources to foreigners at the expense of locals;land,good government contracts and no emphasis on local value addition,just building malls instead of encouraging manufacturing.Result- an “artificial good economy” with high levels of unemployment and poverty!!

  3. When is Mwamba leaving for Ethiopia/AU? His transfer was announced months ago and the Zambian community in SA threw him a farewell party two months ago! Is ECL struggling to find a replacement for him in Pretoria? Or maybe he doesn’t want to leave SA for AU? May the powers that be please update us!?

  5. Mr Mwamba which strategy is going to implemented and when.
    1900 there is strategy to get rid of poverty and illetrace in Africa
    1950 still there is was strategy
    2000 there is a strategy
    Go through all African presidents 98% of the 53(or 54 countries) have failed .DR Congo,Zimbabwe,Malawi,Niger,Gambia,Zambia,Cameroon,Uganda,Mali,Mozambique the list go on and on over 2 centuries struggling. All the presidents are fighting to continue staying in office not economic growth and development. Look at Zuma his main focus was consolidating the relationship with the Gupta family. The rest is Chinese mega-billionaire dollar welfare. The Chinese mega-manufacturing base is the world warehouse supplying Africa all sort of products.

  6. For instance Chinese supplied military weapons for liberation and fighting communism. And also supplied about 1000 machetes to Rwandan before the genocide . So in Africa will continue importing from Chinese,meaning no jobs,no industries and no workable economic strategic economic and political policy. Furthermore,the Chinese gave billions of dollars with the aim to takeover the local potential industries and when this failed then workers have became affected as they are not getting paid in our case. So very soon we will start importing from Chinese products like meal mealie,salt,soup,tomatoes,riot gears,meat,drinking water,polish,Vaseline,building sand,crush stones and beer.
    Lastly the Chinese billion aid to Africa has result into a large scale of corruption,financial…

  10. Africa’s problems are not caused by colonialism. They are caused by poor governments.
    They are caused by corrupt selfish incompetent MEN .
    Look at the Asian countries that were colonised.
    They are now miles ahead of Zambia.

  11. Zambia needs to be liberated from their new colonial masters – the PF. PF has deliberately induced poverty so that the Zambian people can become docile to its misrule. May the Lord deliver us from these evil rulers.
