  1. Lunngu should’ve gone to Tokyo straight from India to save $$$. Its telling too that he didn’t even attend the last TICAD 2016 meeting just close by in Nairobi.

    • And then will come back for change of cloths, pick some “experienced personal advisers” and leave for USA for UN “annual vacation” meeting.
      In the mean time, famine, destitution will continue unabated and “belt tightening” and “international statesmanship of the anointed one” will be new slogan of the PF horde of brainwashed mongrels.

    • Spaceman is ruling Zambia. He is always in spaceshuttle, hopping to copperbelt, northern province, northwestern province etc. etc. coupled with international trips to steal through daily allowance fir himself and his kachasu cronies.
      My vote will go to any frog, insect, cattle, rustler who promises to lock him and his cronies up in 2021.
      People are dying and this clueless moron is wasting money. His actions ate crime against humanity.

    • He just loves being in mid-air doesn’t he?

      At some point FTJ liked publicity and making a name for himself at the international scene. Maybe campaigning for international jobs when he was to leave office.

      Never a fun of fliers. I hope there is no backtracking on the so called austerity measures. Presidential travels just ought to hit the top list of items on the austerity measures’ list.
      From Japan to where? When you were in India I asked the same question. The moment we get a non energetic president, less travellers, they pass on while in office.

    • This lazy guy knows that he’s incompetent and clueless. He wouldn’t even qualify to be a dog catcher. And yet he’s President in Zambia, just wasting our meager resources. Don’t waste your vote on this clueless guy. Save the country by voting this clown out of office in 2021. People are starving and he is busy flying around all over the place. He needs prison time once he loses the election. Corrupt lazy Lungu.

  5. ECL has really amassed money through travel allowances. What a cheap and shameful way to steal from poor Zambians. And it’s more shameful because people know what’s happening.
    How long will this go on for, who will save this Country?

    • No we have a perpetual loser always wanting to be president for the continued stay of PF in Government. As long as there is double h on the ballots, I will always vote any other leading candidate but double h.

  10. When he comes back from Japan, tell him to give his employers a press conference so people can know what he’s been up to lately. Kenya – India n now Japan.

  11. If what is circulating on social media is correct then kaya mwandi this country. It is saying President Lungu is the most travelled President in living memory having undertaken 99 trips in the less than 5 years he’s been in power. Much more than Chiluba undertook in 10 years!
