    • Hello CK
      Eeeh! What e doesze the eeh hihi word academic mean? LPM would ask.
      Guess what? You will be compelled to live with the outcome whether you participate or not.
      This thing is going on. Its good that you and other overzealous characters are not participating because progressive goons like you are doomsayers.
      If chiefs can attend, who is CK and his minions?
      Enemies of progress.

  1. Another bullsh*t way to get PF elected no matter what, we have serious financial problems in the country and spending money on a predetermined dialogue for ten days, even the UN general assembly doesn’t sit for this long

  2. Kambwili your colleagues in Upnd have allowed members who wish to attend to do so. Keep your warped opinion to your warped brain.

  3. CK is right. An exercise without blessing of the church and its people is bound to flop. Waste of resources. It is surely predetermined and those in attendance will realise too late and held responsible for the confusion that will erupt

  4. Chimbwili says what? Whatever, consider it trib.al bullsh1t and ignore.
    When the amended constitution is passed both Chimbwili and Trib.al Hacks will live and abide by the same rules, whether they participated in the Forum or not. Otherwise on what basis are they gonna petition the next election in 2021?

    Surprisingly, despite Trib.al Hacks opposing the Forum, some of his MPs are attending. Not that they are allowed by their party but because they are principled and the trib.al party cannot afford to lose them despite them actually defying ka underfive, for that is what it is.
    The trib.al upnd is not as united as it is made to look. Remember U5 trib.al called for protests? Who has obeyed him? Not even his strongholds or his wife and children,… nor even himself…

  8. Shut up naiwe Chimbwili, amano kwati ni trib.al.
    It is the same law that you and Trib.al Hacks will use to petition the elections in August 2021. So why not join and influence the law for your sure loss in 2021 rather than regret 2 years from now, we cipuba we, bushe uyo Trib.al Hacks ecipuba winga konkelesha?

  10. I get shocked when people say KAMBWILI ALALANDA KA EDGAR KUMBI KUMBI FYE. WACUMFWA IFYO CACILANDA? EBAUME. I feel sorry for Zambia. Edgar may not be good for you but to base your endorsement on platform utterances is sending Zambia even to worse levels.

  11. How I wish this dialogue can even call for more controversial amendments to make the big headed guys cry more like babies. Their presence was surely needed to articulate issues and bring out outstanding issues according to their understanding. Shying away and just making noise outside will not help develop this country. These guys are just like dogs that bark at everything they see. Get in there and tell the nation that this is what you want changed and make us understand.
