  1. Ba Lungu you launch anything even things meant for councillors you fly to go and launch, one day you will launch naka ntember. What a useless boss you are, Mr Sata stopped people from dancing for him and the whole lot of you without a vision is the one doing the dancing what a shame.

  2. New civic centre commissioned at astronomical cost and yet service delivery is non existent and council workers have not been paid for 6 months. I honestly do not understand our priorities.

  3. Misplaced priorities and the Chinese constructing these so called infrastructures are walking away with a lot of our money. They lie to meno meno build more more and he follows at the expense of workers not getting paid on time, escalating debt, reduced reserves, increased load shedding, unemployment and more. When hunger worsens don’t expect those people to vote based infrastructures they cannot eat

  4. He spends K1.5million to travel and commission a K3.5million building. Mr austerity indeed. Surely the local government Minister should have done that. This presidency is amazing. Active from the party angle and clueless on statecraft.
