  1. Boza yayamba manje…..Gold mine for donor funds…..but keep on lying and forget about tourism industry in Zambia

  2. The world now is full of trickery all of a sudden everyone is now dying only of COVID,,,,,something is not right

  3. The launch of the Makeni bridge was heavily congested and there was no social distancing. What a blunder!

  4. When people saw these politicians self isolating after testing positive, some people think you can self isolate in one rented roomed mu komboni, nanga ma BID yapaka bwanji?

  5. Dr Chilufya …i beg u oh…Make some $$$$ out of these morons.
    Sue them for false arrest and malicious prosecution

  6. My sincere condolences to families and friends of the deceased. As we move away from cold weather we will see a remarkable shift to less fatalities. This virus doesn’t discriminate. We humbly request you all to abide by the guidelines. Where not sure, please contact relevant authority for advice. Do not live in ignorant because it is costly. Oh lord watch over our country. We rebuke any evil wishes and thoughts by the diasporans and upnd against us. Amen

  7. Alarming to say the least. Please, please introduce new measures to safeguard citizens in markets, bus stations and on buses as well as funerals. Most shops are doing fine with compliance. By month end, the results of that ill advised makeni bridge “congregation” will be felt.

  8. Am sure the parte is happy for breaching the 5000 cases mark! This parte celebrates all negatives high debt, high inflation, low GDP growth, high cost of all public procurements, high corruption profile, high poverty levels, high unemployment, more closed media houses, poor governance….when every other country are targeting opposition trends!!

    Dununa Reverse at work!!

  9. And the fooolish leader thinks all is well …how can someone go to open a $13 million mushemuko when there’s a pandemic.

  10. When we test they cannot tell us covid results in a week yet they are able to immediatly establish a dead body that has just arrived of having died of covid? niyabwanji iyi?

  11. This COVID-19 thing is deadly bane. Lets get united and win this fight. All we need is to accept that it is real, we walk the talk and it will definitely be over. Zambia is favored by GOD always.

  12. #Chichi, the notion that the president is the custodian of your life as a Zambian is erroneous. A head of state has responsibility to a limited extent as overseer of our resources, but we cannot impute every cost and actions of citizens to one person. We as citizens are squarely responsible for our own actions. If you go around our city Lusaka look at the rubbish strewn everywhere, are they by thrown by the head of state? no! it is by you and me. One reason your Bally will never be president is that he has joined this school of thought of cry-babies that leaves with no mind of his own to think of progressive ideas. Sadly, there is a sizeable number of citizens whose mandate is helpless blame game even for things they are squarely responsible. Let us think outside of the box and do…

  13. … Sadly, there is a sizeable number of citizens whose mandate is helpless blame game even for things they are squarely responsible. Let us think outside of the box and do something individually good for our great nation. The politics will be there for ever, but we will not be there forever so let us live and do the best for our own.
