  1. While disinfecting Parliament Building by the Muslim Community is welcome Ministry of Health should ensure that all MPs and Parliamentary Staff are tested and those who are Covid-19 Positive are quarantined b4 they go back to their constituencies. If this is not done then these MPs risk infecting people in their constituencies.

  2. Kekekekeke, Indians to the rescue, when you even have ZNS. Who the fvck is the minister of Lusaka province? Whoever is minister of Lusaka must be thrown away. Please spray the ministers in the next cabinet meeting.

  3. Let’s see how qualified and creative our ministers are. Death is knocking on your door step. Think about all the things you have decided to politicise and let’s see if you can add this one to the list. This is a sign from God that people in charge should start executing their jobs diligently. It’s not much to ask is it? channel resources the right way and start doing your jobs to save this country.

  4. God has his own way of doing things. He is in control right now. This is time to repent. Mwapya shikulu is around.

  5. Mr. Khankara has done such a commendable job during this pandemic – he is more deserving of a Presidential Medal of Honor on African Freedom Day — unlike many undeserving people like the nurse who became a General when only a qualified Medical Doctor is supposed to head military medical services.

  6. At the same time we hope the sprayers were also given holy water to spray so as to get rid of the evil spirits of the upnd from our parliament.

  8. Remember Mr Ismail Khankara is not even christian.
    He is helping the so called “Christians” who have lamentably failed to control covid-19.
    These “Christians for Lungu” are experts at stealing and holding national days of prayer.

    • They just busy pushing for a Zambia is a Christian nation clause to be included in the constitution. Just one question would Americans or British allow such to happen in their congress or parliament? I thought such security sensitive places , its the military that should have been doing the fumigation.

  9. Disinfecting the Parliament Building is commendable but test, trace and quarantine the MPs and Parliamentary Staff. This should be done b4 MPs return to their constituencies and families. Lets follow the WHO Guidelines in eradicating this disease.

  10. If the well looked after MPs with the latest technology at their disposal are not safe, what about the pupils and students in our schools ??

  13. AICZ ought to be applauded for their considerate deed. But, where is the Ministry of health in this – shouldn’t the Ministry be leading on Covid 19 prevention and care? Politicians etc., need scientist’s advice & lead – where are they?

  14. Where are the COVID-19 donated funds being spent, by the way? A breakdown if someone could, please? I ask because of this latest noble act by private citizens to disinfect Parliament and the fact that ventilators were not working when one of the MPs died at Levy hospital.

  15. After fumigation shut it down parliament n come n fumigate again when you’re about to open. Forget Bill 10 , life is too precious.
