    • I really can’t believe this kind of trickery and he thinks we are stupid. Anyway enjoy your kuseya and ubupuba as Saviour Chishimba puts it because your days as President are numbered. Kuya bebele

    • As you go to Eastern province your excellency please note that I have no power at home in PHi from 8 hours yesterday morning Wednesday to now Thursday, this is well over 24 hrs with no word from any body from ZESCO. Not sure if it is extended loading shedding, over 24 hours

  1. Iwe Ka ** ka lungu there are more important issues facing the country and there you are busy commissioning things that can be commissioned by a 15 year old. Many governments would have resigned by now looking at the power cut confusion in the country. You will realise when it is too late and the country is attacked by foreign element due to lack of power.

  2. I think there is a reason why Lusaka is the capital city and why state house is in Lusaka. The president is supposed to be working from state house on mostly policy issues. That is the work of the president….policy on economy, policy on mining, policy on agriculture, policy on energy and many more sectors that contribute to economic development. The president is not supposed to go around the country commissioning and opening gravel roads, tetiary institutions, classrooms and God knows what else. It is so shameful really. He is neglecting the most crucial problems the people are facing to go and campaign and drink.
