  1. Don’t be silly you willy. You can’t even manage to feed your own country or supply reliable power and here u are saying you will contribute millions. I heard that a lot from my Zambia ex. She always promised to contribute money to projects but always had an excuse. In fact she was just broke. Now my white wife is self sufficient. And you know they say independent successful women are very confident in bed too

  2. This should not surprise any Zambian anymore. This is the same government that is exporting power to other countries at the expense of their own citizens

  3. That time you cant even feed yourself…This is a story of a father who drinks too much kachasu leaving his children hungry but promising to contribute to his concubine `s well being…ba Zambia whats wrong with you kanshi and where is that money going to come from…?Your economy is in ICU…your hospitals are dilapidated…your schools…by the the way you promised to open Kabwe textiles up now people are still waiting…PF Kuya this time around.Only the blind cant those you eat together with cant see how wicked you are…shame!

  5. Kwena UPND cadres are confirmed indoors, they can’t even read. Read this you tribles:

    “Dr Chilufya also thanked the Global Fund for having contributed 1.2 billion dollars towards Zambia’s fight against the three diseases.

    “..And Mr. Erdington thanked Zambia for contributing money towards the Fund and pledged support to the country.”

    For your information you trible good for nothing upnd cadres, this is a global fund. In 2015 Zambia pledged $3m, and look at the massive support that we received. Today we pledge $3.5m, this is like seed money you fyuul. That is if you are sufficiently intelligent to understand what I am talking about. Too much trible in your brains you cant even see good things.

  6. The only thing that I don’t like about Dr Chilufya’s statements is the boring reference to His Excellency said this, said that, committed to this, that etc even at international fora. Di
    d you hear the British, South Africans, French or anybody else refer to their Presidents or Prime ministers?
    Please please please stop this rub.bish of trying to turn your leader into a god, it does not work and it is DISGUSTING to say the least. They tried it with KK wamuyaya, and now Bwalya Mwamba in Ethiopia is pleading with AU to recognise KK.

    Can the gods to be whoever they are also help us by rejecting this highly embarrassing fo..foolishness.
