  1. Rest in peace Sir,

    I pray your family finds comfort in the good Lord.

    This disease has overstayed its welcome.

  2. I just pray people start taking this disease seriously. Even if you do not have symptoms, you can pass it on to weaker members of the community.

  3. Very sad, but the PF has generally ignored health guidance to avoid gatherings. The opening of that hump by Edgar Lungu was characterised by PF cadres ignoring all the rules just like what happened in the Chilufya case at the high court.

  4. PF are responsible for most of the deaths and escalating spread of covid ,

    They ban opposition while Inviting their followers Enmass to rallies

    If we were wicked we would say let them continue with their rallies to deplete their ranks , but we are not that evil , a life is a life

  5. HAS died or HAS died?
    Which is which?
    Where is the editor?
    And why don’t our leaders announce their illnesses so that we pray for them? Of what use is it to only announce deaths? This treatment of disease like it’s a crime to be sick is what is killing us! It’s called Stigma! And the worst form is Self-stigma!

  6. I hv said before right here on LT that we hv a crisis on our hands. I hv also called for allowing parties that held respective parliamentary and local government seats that become vacant to go unopposed so that we don’t expose more people to avoidable risks of catching covid-19. The nxt elections are less than 12 months away, people. Surely we can wait. Wht will it take for political parties to listen? Should I start insulting to get attention?

  10. @KZ, You should have said those “Sweet Nothings” when he was still alive. Truth is that he can’t hear you now. Neither is he aware or conscious about your condolences. As the Bible says, The dead are asleep, neither do they have any part in anything under the sun! If you want to show me love, do so while I am still breathing!

  11. Devil he knew how I felt. Death affects us in different ways. It helps to talk it all out for some of us. There is nothing wrong with me singing my praises for such a great man after his death. Why do we have memorials then if we shouldn’t praise people after their death? You sound very evil and bad hearted. Grow up and let me mourn how I want to.

Don’t bring that diaspora stuff to me. Kz

  13. Civil servant Kaizar Zulu and former presidential adviser calling Zambians in the diaspora “grow up you sons of dogs.”
    Next you will blame diasporans for not paying your workers.
    Surprised to see you quote the Bible, thought you have no time.

  14. Corruption scandals: 48 Houses Social Security Cash Luxury Presidential Jet Ambulances Fire Trucks Mukula Trees Ndola-Lusaka Rd Malawi Maizegate Fuelgate Swaziland landgate Zesco Loans

    Kaizar Zulu, the guy who is supposedly ‘weak’ and ‘mourning’ still trolling Lusaka Times, watching to see who has mentioned his name or given him thumbs up… what a pretentious hypocrite! He’s not even the real Kaizar Zulu who was fired long ago by Lisholi Kawalala Lungu, but he thinks he is. Talk about insecurity and looking for validation on the Internet, sad!

  15. Too bad to hear of the death of such a relatively young OP director who I have known in academic circles and interacted with. Always soft spoken and wearing a smile such that you would mistake him for a member of the clergy. He was indeed very human. RIP and may the bereaved family find comfort in God’s strength.

  16. Sorry for his death but he was no better than his other cadres. He helped rig the last election results.God can never be mocked and his time can never be changed.Who knows KZ might not even witness next yeats election. Bembas say ” umwaka ushili obe, tabauchulibuka ibaka” Let us repent and humble ourselves before our creator. He stabbed Mwanambale in the back, where is he today? Rest in peace traitor.

    .Everything comes to an end.

  18. Yes you stabbed Mwanambale in the back, helped rig the 2016 elections but today you are gone and Zambia is still there.Gods time is wonderful, who knows KZ may not see the end of this year. We need to humble ourselves before our creator.

  19. Iwe chi KZ why upuba so monga ndiwe mwana wa nsanya. You claim your wife is in the UK so I guess you include her in your insults. Chimutu monga gumu gumu! Ala.

  20. “The continent is at a pivotal point,” said Dr Matshidiso Moeti, the WHO’s regional director for Africa, last week. “The virus has spilled out of major cities and spread into distant hinterlands. Countries need to keep apace and urgently decentralize their key response services. We can still stop Covid-19 from reaching full momentum, but the time to act is now.

  21. Those ar the guys who don’t respect other pipos lives.remember the gassing. Nw hes gone. And the day for kaizar zulu to die shall also certainly cme. These guys bhave like life belongs to them..

  22. Kaiser Zulu stop insulting dogs,dogs are loyal something you are not…and if you should know by loyalty i mean loyal to the country…

  23. RIP sir. You gave your positive contribution to your mother land therefore those that are grateful shall definitely remember you. May your family be strengthened during this trying time.

  24. He helped rig the 2016 elections? If yes, MAY HE ROT in HELL! He pushed our country into harms way because the thugs who are ruling us have no hman feelings for Zambia and its people. To them, only money matters. Selling our sovereignty to the Chinese makes us slaves to those inhuman beings. I HATE YOU AND YOUR PF THUGS!
