  1. Some news should just be kept to yourselves naimwe. BBC reports:”But despite the billions of dollars in military aid Egypt received during his time in office, unemployment, poverty and corruption continued to grow.
    Discontent boiled over in January 2011, after similar protests in Tunisia led to the overthrow of the president there. Mubarak was forced to step down 18 days later.”

  2. Robert Mugabe ,Dauda Jawara ,Arap Moi and now Hosni Mubarak . Former African presidents are dying at a fast clip.

    The dude was a Dictator that is the truth. Let us stop this culture of praising people when they die, fully knowing they were Dictators. We must call a spade a spade and not a spade a big spoon

    Hosni Mubarak would have not mourned Lungu he had died first. Eygptians hate black Africans, black people in Eygpt are treat like worse than slaves, Putin was right about black leaders see whites as gods Instead of mourning innocent Zambians who died because of PF’s dirty politics you mourn a stranger who wouldn’t give a rats a s s if it was you who kicked the bucket.. tsk.. tsk..

    Putin was right about black leaders see other races with light skin as gods Instead of mourning innocent Zambians who died because of PF’s dirty politics you mourn a stranger who wouldn’t give a f*ck if it was you who died.. tsk.. tsk..

  7. MUbarak was toppled. He was in jail for 7 years and you are sending condolences to him. I doubt whether the current government will accept these condolences. Mulibe vochita ba President?

  8. Ba Lungu, in Zambia many young people and the old alike are dying almost every other day from gassing and at the hands of your police force, and you have not sent any message of condolences to any of these victims’ families, not even for Catherine Namugala’s nephew. But then you are quick to send condolences on the death of a tin-pot dictator who never even knew you. What’s wrong with you?????????

  9. Arabs should be morning. They don’t even consider themselves as Africans anyway. Just do the protocol but we won’t remember him as a great African.

  10. I am beginning to like E Lungu’s new travel stance, he’s no longer plane whooped , that’s the Magufuli/Kagame stance…slowly getting into dununa forward.

  11. icho chintu…ndine odabwa maningi bati….this man is cold-hearted,I wonder where he came from to be zambias president…!!! nkalani koni na nsoni imwe ba mudala by stepping down tapapata shuwa.
