    • Ba kandile wants the president to realise he exists also. The President is not immune to allegations. Its for him to answer to his critics. There is no case to take to court here.

      At president of a party.
      Joker waste of time .

    • Hunger is really a curse to a land of unprincipled people.
      Here is a man trying to get the attention of Lungu so that the crumbs from the table of corruption may fall on his side of the bootling table.
      No shame, no principles.

    • Generally speaking, you can file a suit on your own behalf without being a lawyer, but you cannot file a suit pro se on behalf of someone else. (If you have legal status as someone else’s guardian, you might be able to sue on their behalf without a lawyer, but I’ve never seen that attempted)

  1. What is special about any politician that they need protection from citizens? Are they like all the gods who need help to defend their omnipotent stupidity?
    Pointing out the shortcomings of politicians helps to keep them honest.

  3. Edgar must wean his useful idyots from their perpetual dependency on his pocket. Have they finished the money he gave them during campaigns? I also don’t understand why our Courts entertain such cases, they just waste time. Court processes are costly so from where has this loafer gotten money to sue Kambwili? You are just disgracing yourselves

  4. Useless man. Opposition parties that are paid to split the vote, this is the result. Instead of fighting for zambian peoples people’s rights and welfare or telling us what his useless party will do, this gorilla of a man is instead suing fellow opposition on behalf of a mediocre president. And you guys wonder why I married a non zambian whlte woman. Zambiand are useless half the time

  8. As soon as ba Jona is out of State House, these same Lazy unproductive Goons like Peter Chanda who survive on Jona’s “Kasaka ka ndalama” – (Zambian taxpayers money), will turn against ba Jona, & like moth’s to a flame, or files to Sh.1t, move on to leech, & suck on whoever replaces Mr Jona in Plot No1, mark my words.
    Same as Monday Chanda, Bowman, Dollar Siliti, etc.

  10. Country Men and Women, As Alangizi Ba Chitukuko we would like to advice the citizen of this country Zambia that, We must work passionately and unrelentingly for the goal of Freedom, and we must be sure that our hands are clean in the struggle. Therefore we must never struggle with falsehood, hate, malice or bitterness. It is important to respect and work with the government of the day, talking will never provide any solution to this country.

  11. Check your comments, and analyse them well, we stand for peace and unity. We read that we ought to forgive our enemies; but we do not read that we ought to forgive our friends. A country with divided hands can not develop, it takes you as a citizen to be bold enough and develop a forgiving heart.

  15. In spite of our political affiliations and ideaologies, Politicians should learn to work together for a common purpose if we are to develop this country. However that does not mean that those in opposition can not offer checks and balances to government. We must also realise that there can only be one leader at a time just as it is imperative to note that the party in power can not develop this country without the oppostion. By so doing our country will develop.

  16. The leader of an opposition Party ‘suing’ the leader of another opposition Party for allegedly defaming the leader of the govt. they are both opposed to? It says it all. Judge for yourselves.

    If only the same endeavour could be exerted on the issues facing the country and the possible solutions ……? – Instead of this diabolical waste of breath to venerate a fellow mortal in the shameful hope of being invited to his banquet table.
