  1. The young man has done exceptionally well, keep it up Christopher Kang’ombe. Dull chaps like Freedom are busy trying to frustrate the youths, we don’t want Mayors to be elected by councilors as proposed in Bill 10 because it’s retrogressive. These are the youths we want to take over leadership at the highest level not those smiling hyenas who have surrounded the Presidency. They’ve nothing to offer

    • His city Kitwe is ravaged by youthful criminal gangs and somehow he has done well. If this is what success looks like, it means we hv a problem.

    • @Nemwine, he doesn’t manage the City alone. Street gangs are a security matter which falls under Kampyongo. If he dares do anything he’ll be accused of interference. In Zambia even good people look bad

    • Kitwe is not a city to be proud of. Right under nose nose of Mr. Kangombe at the council there is massive corruption . Who allocated land just opposite PUMA offices in Chibuluma Road? Who allocated land on the Zambia Army land at the Barracks? Who allocated or sold land to a so called investor opposite the Chingola Road Cemetery? Rubbish collection remains a big problem in Kitwe. The town stinks!!!

  2. Ayatollah didn’t you just see an article about his residents complaining about the rates the pay and run-down infrastructure. Kitwe seems to be regressing and not the once vibrant place it was. Go there now and you won’t find much going on excpet for the malls
