  4. If only she could do just one only one good thing in her life let HER OPEN PRIME TV NOW.

    This closure and censorship of private tv and radio stations is only encouraging the masses to resort to social media platforms because of lack of news balancing by the main stream media. Bow bow should instead advise his counterpart to let media freedoms flourish.

  5. Covid has been a money making opportunity for pf, all the deaths are not Covid-19 related but other issues. Just as well all the deaths occurring in our health facilities should be included in the covid death statistics.

  7. YANKALA BAD NOMBA!!!
    You die of Aids,its Covid-19.Why adding someone who has died of Aids to covid-19?
    Maybe there is a trophy at the end for the number of deaths recorded for covid-19.There is no way some you can relate someone who has died of Aids to covid 19 with a history of poor adherence to treatment.Pa last noukaikuluka mukalanda ati ni covid 19.
    May the souls of the departed rest in peace.

  10. Siliya and Chilufya now test negative after questions raised from among the public as to why they had not been quarantined! Seriously? These two are complicit with those calling the pandemic extent a hoax! Be serious and exhibit professionalism in covid-19 management!

  11. This is costing the economy and is not worth attention at this moment.
    Are you waiting for the vaccine from Mr. Gates for 17 million people for a virus that has killed 10 people who had other diseases (and 1 suicide) since March?

  14. No covid 19 in Zambia just a thieving strategy. You may be able to fool a few but God is not blind. There is always a price to pay for all lies told. Next year is not far, wait until you leave office. PF is annoying.

  15. So if you test negative you throw away your mask? Aren’t both ministers supposed to be wearing masks?

  16. I told you people that Chilufya is not credible chap ….him cheating about having covid-19 is child’s play to him this is a corrupt thug who has helped himself to millions of dollars of taxpayers money!!

  17. Old photo sir, before the corona era. They did well to come back. Who missed them? Lungu did because he spent whole weekend with Lusambo and Kampyongo and Jameson special!! He now needs slit Dora to complete package and Chitalu to provide prescription for what Dora with upload into Jonathan (she imported it)

  18. Testing negative just in time for bill 10. In fact the entire cabinet should be under quarantine(like in Botswana).
    Because of bill 10, covid-19 will be spreading in parliament.
    ALL MP’s MUST BE TESTED FOR COVID 19 BEFORE PARLIAMENT RESUMES.
    ANYBODY TESTING POSITIVE MUST SELF QUARANTINE AT HOME.

  19. @Madilu system, so PF to go, who takes over another crony?
    Let there be peace. We do not want riots, skirmishes, disturbances. 2021 is around the corner. Let us vote in 2921 for a change of System (as you put under your name) and not installing one crony, replacing with another totalitarian. Time is ripe to do a real change of the sysyem

  20. It was nice when we had the real expert briefing us on Covid 19 and not dr. Chilufya. Well his face is going to be all over the place again.

  21. In solwezi, when a person with covid is detected, where are they treated for discarding and treatments, if they are mild symptoms, can they guide?
