  1. Hey we need to spend money on the 100million USD presidential jet. We need to buy kaizer a new VX every few months since he bashes them every so often.We need to pay 42million USD for 42 sorry wheelburrows. We need to build 48 houses for corrupt PF guy who we dont know. We need to pay millions if dollars for another private jet from Russia, and then run out of money to finish paying it off. We need to give overpriced contracts to Pf cadres. We need to pay 1.2billion USD for a 316km road. We need to pay 40 million for a toll gate. Who cares if 8000 HIV patients go without treatment right? That is PF.
    I often wonder what kind of morality people who support PF have.

  2. These ARVs are supplemented with US tax, send it back let’s see if Lungu can pay for it from his Chinese hand outs. They can no even afford to pay for importing electricity
