  1. Great African ubuntu. We are one and the same people. However we have amongst us a few rotten diasporans who are trying to create animosity amongst us. These evil creatures were praying for a full blown war in the hope that it would lead to their tribal demigod going to state house. These chaps are not even zambian after running away and renouncing their citizenship. They are now beenused by their slave masters to create division for us here in Africa. MwanyalA

You know that your demigod leader is unsellable and yet all because of tribe you cannot force him to stand down and give someone else the mantle in your ka useless party. You are now insulting my mother like you are in primary school. Grow up. Meanwhile you left your mothers here suffering while you ran away to diaspora. Thank us for taking care of them..chimbweee iwe

  10. You shud have asked why KK did not take this issue to SADC or AU (OAU) by then? You should have also asked why the MMD is its 20 years rule didn’t hastily resolve this issue!! YOU ARE LOSING LAND AND MINERALS AND YOU ARE BUSY CONGRATULATING A FACILITATOR FOR THAT?! I JUST HOPE OUR PARLIAMENT WILL NOT RATIFY THAT HASTILY DONE DEMARCATION SO THAT IT CAN BE REVISTED WITH SERIOUSNESS!!

  11. Next time use drones take our land back swiftly. We are peace loving people but we should not be taken for granted ala. Look at the size of DRC. They have no shame to encroach all the way into Zambia making us to cross borders just to get to the other side of our country? Malabish.

  12. The word ‘Jagaban’ means ‘leader of warriors’. It was formed from the chieftaincy title bestowed on Tinubu in a town in Northwest Nigeria: “Ja a gabar borgu” which means “the leader of Borgu land or in the Yoruba Language the asiwaju of Borgu land”

  13. What I am interested in is: How has this resolution changed our territorial claim? What is the total land area for Zambia after this “resolution”? In fact, Zambia’s land issue should be resolved with the Pedicle in mind – we can’t have such a stupid land map in the history of mankind.
