  1. We don’t want this Bill 10 nosense anymore and put it to rest by shooting it down.

    We must now focus on the the next year elections.

    Meanwhile PF must go!

  2. The debates are pointless as they don’t yield any positive change. Enjoy your allowances while you are at it.

  3. The parliament has to deal with the Chinese issue before they talk about anything ! there is a giant in the room which should be attacked before any other discussions come about, we are Zambians who are being called foreigners in our mother land and racially insulted by these small eyed mountain monkeys of China.
    Our parliament shouldn’t spend time talking about non related issues to the problem Zambians are facing, what our people must know is that these characters came to Zambia to make in order to enrich their country they are not doing us a favour it is our minerals they looking for they don’t love us, as there is known to all of course they are on business.

  4. It looks like the PF and its rotten head, Chagwa, has Irrevocably committed to a course of action called Article 10, they seem to have clearly made a fateful and final decision regarding this most treacherous of Articles intended solely to ensure they retain power at all costs. They have absolutely submitted their resignation, they have indeed crossed the Rubicon. Edgar Chagwa Lungu’s fate seems tied to that of one Ghanian Lt. General Akwasi Amankwaa Afrifa. He was executed together with two other former heads of state, General Kutu Acheampong and General Fred Akuffo, and five other Generals (Utuka, Felli, Boakye, Robert Kotei and Amedume), in June 1979.

  5. To do what, just pay these guys to stay at home please. The past two months have been peaceful and relaxing without Tutwa Ngulube and company, mweba napapata!
