    • Question to African voters, is it a God given privilege that all african presidents should automatically serve two or more terms?, why is it not the case in western democracies e.g USA where only about 30% of presidents that have served have gone on to be elected for a second term. Or is it the usual african political tactic during elections that voting for the incubate, will make same them give time tofinish, their unfinished projects , surely can any individual finish government projects, when governments are forever until kingdom come.
      What criteria do American voters and African voter use to vote someone for a second term.

  5. That’s the only thing he does better running away from problems and pretending to be working. Sit down for once and address us through a press conference, this is a curse to have befallen Zambia.

  7. Travel well sir, please go and learn how neighbouring Countries conduct elections without hacking each other with pangas nor wielding guns. So peaceful rendering victory very sweet, no blood lost, just sweat. Where is this culture of extreme violence coming from?

  8. Zambians have to grab the keys to that plane and let this man work he can’t continue getting away without working. Attending these ceremonies is not work but leisure. 15 hours of loadshedding and this man is allowed to loiter around

  10. Welcome to Botswana your excellency.We hope you will enjoy your stay.During your visit please find out from His excellency Dr. Masisi how the campaigns were done ,how many people were killed during these campaigns and how long did the electoral commission take to declare the winner of the elections.
    Let me remind you sir, the opposition were given freedom to campaign. There are no cadres in Botswana.Oh no load shedding.
    When you go back to Zambia ,tell your party how to treat opposition members.They are not your enemies.They are Zambians.Remind Mr Mnangagwa to bench mark how to run free and fair elections.

  11. He could delegate, (less costly) or send a congratulatory message. But as usual, he takes his favourite expensive option.

    When has he sat down to face the nation on the numerous matters that are bleeding the country? When he is home, he is gallivanting around the country ‘commissioning’ things that can be done by district officials. If anyone can’t see this extravagance and a complete lack of governance acumen by ECL and his cohorts, they need their minds examined

  12. Mwandi Chagwa, enjoy while it lasts!
    No one should point a finger at you.
    Zambians are very dishonest!
    You told them you have no vision but they refused to believe you! When you are back, please increase loadshedding to 24 hours!
    By the end of 2019, our GDP will be down to $24 Billion and our total debt will be $21 Billion.
    Please consider buying another presidential jet to enable you fly 6 days every week! Let the haters continue hurting! Let them talk!
