    • I am more worried about his marriage than his expensive travels. I wish he was traveling around with Ba Ester. Can’t have leaders with broken marriages.
      Those other convinient night arrangements are costly too.

    • Two days in Tanzania…four days in India then another local trip when he is back that’s a week done…what a lazy bum he is this moron…wasted years indeed!!

    • Just look at who received him in Tanzania…you will not hear that the Tanzania President clogged traffic to go and receive another head of state on the airport tarmac.

  1. Bwana president. You were enroute to India then made a U turn to Tz.

    Be serious sir. Ask your zicta boys to give you all our comments. Rb was kicked out because he became airborne and put his children in govt affairs and simply stopped listening

    Bwana ! You preach austerity measures but look at your travel expenses on the treasury.

    Go to uth and see how the hospital you created are struggling.

    Simply put. There is no money in the country.

  2. If he’s not loitering locally, he’s loitering abroad.
    He really does not care for the cost of his trips.
    It’s all about himself, but then we warned you about him and you insisted that “Ni Lungu Chabe”

  3. Junketing ,globe trotting and loitering in a time of serious hunger .Bwana Lungu stay home and attend to the many ills affecting Zambians as priority.

  4. Well done for rushing to Tanzania, but how come you rushed to go to Tanzania when you know your Eastern, Southern and Western provinces are crying for your presence to address the hunger situation caused by the droughts. Does it mean Ku Tanzania is more important than Zambian lives dying on your watch from hunger! A humble demon indeed, how do you even sleep with people dying in your own back yard yet happy to show you crocodile teeth with a gap that you should tell you Chinese connections to address coz its horrible if no-one has told you.

  5. The administration feels safe when his outside the country,

    looks like he doesn’t feel safe, when he his in Zambia (Home).

    When is at home (Zambia)is protected by bodyguards dressed in fatigues; “battledress,”

    Why did we get independence?

    Remember we were one of the strongest colonies, because we had structure, currency and laws Compare to other countries in Africa.

    I think we had a good foundation I don’t know why we didn’t build on it.

    • If you Swahili people in Tanzania want a corrupt president,he is right there now in Dar. Zambians are fed up with him.

  6. TZ President too busy to receive another global trotting president. Magufuli does not believe in useless trips that just drain the country’s coffers. He believes in saving and not useless expenditures. He is now building the state of art railway line with speed train from Dar to Morogoro for your own information. He has also flashed out bogus civil servants with fake certificates but here we are embracing fake certificates in government.
    Someone could have forced it on the Tanzanian president as he does not tolerate squandering government coffers.
    He may not even be there where he was forced to meet some presidents of a neighbouring country with no reason or tangible agenda – he needs a reason why he should meet someone who is already in the country for no reason.

  7. Be sure to choose wisely ,Zed, next time elections come around . And think more of our survival as a people than just of our selves and individual families and that for all of us here who scream PF, UPND,MMD… Coz like it or not, these r the same guys !!! so instead of wasting your hours on LT blogs invest that time into solutions for the future. Coz with no memory there is no history and with no history there is no future. Our enemy is the rotten system we have endorsed for years . Stand up and fight for something that’s yours , that’s ours. Shame shame shame , shame on you , on me, shame on us all . Let’s stand up for change ,change ! coz that’s the African way and has been so for the last 4000 years. If not , none of us would be in zed now. We disagreed and that’s how we broke off…

  8. Lungus electral contract with the defence forces of Zambia and the PF caders is to put money in their pockets in return for them turining a blind eye on his corruption solied administration……..

    that contract is in difficulties as money to bribe as promised in his electoral contract has dried …..
