  1. So you want funding to force your subjects to accept bill 10. Or you just want to use bill 10 as an excuse to chew government funds.

    • 1. By virtual of more than 80% Zambians been practicing Christians, automatically Zambia is a Christian nation.
      2. Zambia been a Democratic nation and political parties have a free will and right to adopt whoever they feel will increase the chances of their political party to win an election, unless we want to turn into a communist one party state maybe that can be feasible. What happens if a party adopts 100% women and 1% go through are still going to impose them on electorates to fulfill what you dream to be in a constitution?

  2. Are these not the same billboard of Bill 10 one guy called Given Lubinda which he said he he has never seen?

    These PF ministers one day they will deny that they have never been ministers.

    And this chief Kaputula is a hungry man and he just wants money for his palace.

    We know these hungry chiefs they are a number of them eying for brown envelopes.

    2021 PF must go!

    • “Bill 10 is now killing Zambians. Reports of members of staff contracting and actually dying from COVID-19 make very sad reading indeed. Is Bill 10 worth the lives of people who are now dying because someone must keep Parliament open while they look for that elusive vote to pass it?” he asked. “Should we continue to risk the lives of our parliamentarians and their staff just because Mr Lungu wants to carve out a third term? I don’t think that is right or necessary at all. I am calling on this confused government to adjourn parliament and stop the spread of the coronavirus at that institution. The one insisting on it being open just for the sake of ill-fated Bill 10 has no heart.” by SEJANI. And Retirees are not yet paid.

  3. BILL 10 is fake since when in the history of this nation was a bill been advertised on a bill board. Something is wrong somewhere be careful someone. Retirees are not yet paid.

  5. The fact that these PF crooks decided to advertise this evil BILL 10 on a billboard just shows you how desperate they are, This desperation should set alarm bells of danger ringing in everyone’s mind. Why are they spending so much money to have this Trojan horse imposed on Zambians? Come on people, wake the heck up. PF doesn’t do anything that does not benefit them directly. They really don’t care about the Zambian people, and they’ve not done so for the past 9 years they’ve been in power. Reject this evil attempt by these desperate crooks to have this thing passed, as it’s a way to have them stay in office indefinitely. We’re not that gullible to swallow their lies without question. PF must GOOOOOOOO…..to prison.

  6. Not every member of parliament (MP) understands Bill 10. If the system was that each MP was to appear before a panel to be weighed on being conversant with the Bill and why they would vote for or against it the results would be very interesting. A system that could disqualify an MP from voting on a Bill that they don’t fully understand would bring sanity in parliament as now how the vote is cast is in accordance with the party the MP belongs to!
