  1. It’s fine if Parliamentarians practice safety using the recommended health guidelines under the new normal.
    Government business and the economy cannot be brought to a standstill by Covid 19
    So why is Akainde confining himself to his house? He’s a coward

  6. Opening parliament next month is not a good idea. It should be postponed till corona infections drastically reduce. Is it a must for parliament to open really? Then government should as well reopen our children’s schools. They have lost one full term

  7. Eagle one. The one and only chosen one. Hh cannot attend parliament and yet he is leader of opposition party.all because the chap has never and is not in public office. Parliament cannot be cheapened by allowing someone who has no clue about public governance to attend.

    • HH is PF’s biggest threat to their continued stay in power. No wonder they mention him everyday. I mean why not mention Nevers Mumba, Harry Kalaba, Chishimba Kambwili, Mutati?

  9. Lusaka times
    10 july 2020
    Cabinet approves bills to provide for economic processing and export of canabis.

    SO YOU HAVE ALL MISSED IT, I THINK THIS RUSH IS ALSO TO TABLE THIS IN PARLIAMENT AT THE EXPENSE OF MPs lives just like what happened to bill 10.

  10. So, according to PF regime covind-19 has been eliminated and can open parliament as they opened the fly over bridge in big fake numbers, ask Lusambo if he will be in attendance.

  11. What a useless president this man. Hope they will hold the sessions over zoom otherwise if they do them face to face ninshi confirmed kali pena kamudala aka. This boy just wants power but he is outwith modern political governance. Politics of the belly chabe. VW successfully assembled cars in Ghana this week, what have you done for Zambia iwe ka Lungu. Kenya is equally industrializing, not infestors, i’m talking of local industries. Tizadya Bill 10 iwe mbuli?

  12. I thought we adjourned because of Covid19. Right now the Covid figures have risen and are rising much higher than what was obtaining then. So, what is the logic in opening that chamber at this point in time?

  13. The foolish dictator is in denial of the fact that Bill 10 is dead and buried. He still hallucinates that Bill 10 is still here. Bill 10 is gone. What a shameful so called president who is ever preoccupied with trivial things. His fingers are still dripping with the blood of 2 MPs whom he killed by prolonging parliament openning in the face of covid with the hope that they will deliver Bill 10, his life line, for him. Jail is awaiting baba.

  14. I know the real nine chale you crazy fake clown. Go and play with your little p.e.n.is rather than disturb us big boys
