  1. What happened to the one who was there because they keep on losing three election in a raw now they bring in their own.

    • That cartoon can’t handle Zambian elections. Nobody is excited about him, he has already failed.
      We lost another opportunity to give such important to women. There are powerful women in civil and legal society who could serve Zambia with dignity.
      Not these silly chaps who are all about building lodges.

    • Patrick Nshindano should have refused to be part of a flawed process. This position was not advertised and he lacks the requisite qualification. From running a 5 man NGO to running a election budgeted at millions of $$!

  2. LAZ should stick to its mandate and not interfere with legislature. I suspect Sangwa has paid some few coins by HH and other good for nothing citizens just to frustrate the amendment of the constitution process, but it work. The goodness of democracy is that the majority always wins and in this case the majority of MPs with the mandate given to them by the people of Zambia want the constitution to be amended.
    if HH wants to be president he should go to planet mars together with bena sangwa and minions to go and rule themselves and make laws on planet mars no one is stopping them, otherwise, It wont work here in Zambia.
    The people here are happy with the leadership being provided by ECL and want the constitution to be fine tuned.

  3. Mr Nshindano holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics with Development Studies from the University of Zambia and Master of Business Administration from Copperbelt University.

    Nothing suitable for the job. Dont UNZA and CBU offer courses in elections? I mean like Master of Electoral Matters? Or Election Petitions, given that petitions account for 90% of our election activities? In 2021, maybe 95% or more the way I see things if NDC, PF, UPND will still be the main political parties in Zambia.

  4. Who calls themselves Kryticous? It sounds likes certain part of the feminine genitalia. Imagine he married Dora, she would be called Dora Slit Kryticous, apuu!
