  3. Tarino since this according to you this government is so useless at everything they do and they can do no right, why don’t you come and stand as president? Since you know best, why don’t you open a party or stand under another party such as upnd? What are you scared of?

  7. All she has said was that permits will come from the health ministry but has failed to categorally state whether they need to pay or not since that is the bone of contention.

  8. Just how more ridiculous could the name of a ministry be: “Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs”. This comes complete with a reverend as minister going by the name of Godfridah. This is blasphemous! No wonder nothing seems to b e working in Zambia today.

  9. @ Kaizer Zulu
    Tarino just expressed his personal opinion shared by most Zambians anyway, Lungu remains the most completely useless president Zambia has ever seen. Even globally today, I wonder there is any president anywhere who can surpass Chagwa’s gutless uselessness. You whence did not need to patronise or denigrade the man’s opinion by asking him to come and form a party in Zambia or join UPND. What do you have against HH, did your whoring mother give HH an oral blow job and she chocked on his cum and died? What a whore your mother was, if that’s what happened then she deserved to kick the bucket, in a blast from a robust Tonga bull!

  10. These PF people are so backward they even shame cavemen with their type of thinking..The council gives what is known as “Occupation Certificate”…They already have registration documentations with relevant govt departments…

  11. Mudenda is an epitome of typical disgusting perverted upnd misfits. And they wonder why they are perennial losers of elections. You will grow old there in diaspora and die an angry f.ool because your demigod will never be president. Those insults don’t hurt me because I am proud to be serving my nation- something zambians will never let you do. It must be very painful and angering to know that people don’t like you enough to trust you with leadership. In fact you are hated.how does that feel ? Hahaha

  12. The minister is calling for prayer and fasting on one hand and on the other hand we are requesting churches to obtain permits to worship. Churches were told to apply through Town Clerks on the copperbelt now we are told to apply through the Ministry of Health, Where are we headed to? Let’s respect our Christian declaration and respect worship

  13. In chingola the council town clerk cancelled church gathering up to today so how do you expect people to pray. Today you have said permits has to collected from the ministry of health, so which is which?

  14. This is the most useless Ministry ever. We need practical solutions, not just seven days of prayer and fasting.
    KAIZER ZULU, will be in jail in 2021 unless he runs away to South Africa.

  15. Minister of National misguidance, please please madam honourable we are trying to put that fack up behind us. It left a bad taste in our mouths.

  16. GODlessFRIDAH….GO AND WASH CLOTHES IN A KIDS ORPHANAGE IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING GODLIKE. OR INVITE THOSE SAME O RPHANS TO ONE OF YOUR FREE SUMPTUOUS WORKING BREAKFASTS AT THE N’DEKE HOTEL.. TILL THEN KEEP YOUR FATUOUS MOUTH SHUT AND STOP STRUTTING ABOUT IN THOSE RIDUCULOUS HATS TRYING TO OUT- DO MASEBO
