    • Nabwekeshapo Its in preparation for next year’s elections that these things have been bought. Im very sure even the holding cells have been prepared with UPND members’ height weight etc in mind. I will prepare myself for entering one of those trucks

    • THE PF GOVERNMENT IS DIGGING A GRAVE FOR OUR SOVEREIGNITY. WHEN THESE CHINESE PEOPLE GIVE THEM GUNS, THEY ALSO BRING IN SOME FOR THEMSELVES. ONE DAY WE’LL WAKE UP DISCOVER THAT THE CHINESE PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA HAV EMORE ARMS THAN OUR SECURITY FORCES – AND WILL BE THE END! SO, THE FIRST THING THEY DO IS TO PIT GOVT AGANIST IT’S OWN CITIZENS, SOW A SEED OF DISUNITY AND CONFUSION, THEN TAKE OVER. OUR ZAMBIA IS GONE!!!!1

  2. A munumental lack of priorities and waste of tax payers money .Hopefully these are not costing a million dollars out of which is the said 2 million Kwacha peanuts treated as loose change by these clueless scum bags .How can this be a priority when we have schools without water and sewarage systems yet you decide to buy these ?Zambia has gone to the dogs because this government is worse than covid 19 and cholera put together

  3. The invisible hand of China at work. What is happening in Zambia is nothing new. It has happened in Uganda and Zim. China believes in heavyhandedness when dealing with masses. It’s a win-win arrangement for PF and China. PF needs this approach for their political survival while China needs a puppet regime that favours it’s approach. We just hope “Mr Takapite” will live up to his new name. Agony is buying these things and only to get them used on you the buyer! Time to get 50kg of popcorn. This movie is getting more interesting and we don’t know the endgame!

  4. PF niba Onion mumenso twanaka nabo bamambala! The police and Army should arrest the pompwes who said ubomba mwibala alya mwibala, and that kaponya minister who steals for the future of his family!

  5. This is a country with no public toilets…….
    Did Lungu see how the president of Sudan was carried in the same trucks to prison?

  6. Weaponizing the police with military equipment against the population is an arbitrary admission of failure.
    They are expecting more riots because they now know they are failures.

  7. Theirs a God bigger than the god of PF and he has heard the cry of the Zambian people.
    The riot gear is an investment in vain and won’t save PF.
    Better build comfortable prisons for your selves PF

  8. This display of military equipment bought for police is meant to instill fear amongst citizens as they go to vote in 2021. Unfortunately most citizens no longer get scared of police. The same PF has degraded police by allowing PF cadres to attack and abuse men and women in uniform. Please dont lose the focus- register to vote and use your vote wisely in 2021.

  9. Armored vehicles definitely meant to crush protestors after rigging next year’s elections. This is where the evil intentions of PF for the upcoming elections becomes clear. No one should doubt the resolve of Lungu to impose himself for a 3rd term. The trucks above are a harbinger of bad tidings as far as next year’s elections are concerned. The opposition must think outside the box to outsmart these PF quarks. Fortunately, PF outfits are not good at thinking and this is their weakness which needs to be capitalized upon.

  10. Gaddaffi bought similar ones 2 months before his unfortunate death.
    Even the Mali President has them, but he failed to use them 3 days ago.

  11. Is Zambia a peaceful country??
    From this priority I do not think so.
    Just invest in de-escalation of economic and political tension.

  12. This administration is full of fools….what a waste of money…meanwhile hospitals don’t have medicine. National debt reaching ski high…and some people are calling this a win.

  13. More of police emboldening and intimidation equipment! PF is preparing for the mayhem it’s cadres will unleash on the electorate that will want to exercise their civic right of voting! Of utmost importance to the Zambian people and for accountability is the cost associated with purchase of this equipment! And since the government now spends on “used” equipment as has happened for fire tenders the painting in blue should not deceive the citizenry! The equipment looks like decommissioned from army! What is the cost please?

  14. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. As Daniel has indicated the opposition and citizens must start thinking outside the box to outsmart the PF gimmicks. I trust the army and police are also smart and are learning lessons from other countries on how not to use corruptly procured military equipment against their own citizens!!

  15. They are getting ready not to hand over power peacefully when they lose and instead use the police to intimidate the citizenry.

  16. Lungu is preparing for total control of the Zambian population by force

    From prioritising housing and living conditions for the police and army to arming the police with suppression equipment over economic well being of the citizens………

    We predict Zambians will never get rid of lungu peacefully even if they wanted to

  17. I personally feel sad for mr lungu with his intetions.hes one of us and wat hes doing doesn’t not look gd for a brother. We shd all kno zat the country shall outlive all of us.no one can own a country,jst no one.not evn the great mugabe who used to all zim as my zibabwe.i blame selfish kambwili,kalaba,alex chikwanda,kbf,chitotela for hving pushd mr lungu so hard 2 bcme presdent. Look nw.Wen sata was sick Mr lungu hd said on tv zat he had no intentions of goig for the presidency.

  18. With the Kwacha now heading towards K20 to a $, the cost of living has already started showing an upward trend.
    Those who thought of buying these machines are really myopic because those machines cannot contain the wrath of the 18 million Zambians when they choose to erupt!
    They are forgetting that machines fail or burn up into ashes!
    So PF now want to mass murder Zambians?
    See you at the Hague!

  19. So, where are the riots or when will they occur and who will cause these riots, meanwhile covid-19 is all around Zambia without enough ventilators, hospitals without medicines and the youths without jobs. What are priorities of investments in Zambia?

  20. Job well done!! This is proper planning. The same people talking nonsense now would be the ones castigating the police if they fail in their duties of tackling lawlessness, partisan or otherwise. The mood in the country and especially going close to election time warrants that govt prepares for any skirmishes by cadres from different parties. We have witnessed rioting in bye elections and clearly the police were found wanting in terms of adequate resources to quell these riots. People in the past have blamed the police for not doing enough to stop the violence, Sesheke is a good example. So, I say kudos to the govt for being proactive.

  21. Great news indeed! The next government will be well prepared to arrest and imprison all the PF supporters who will be turning up to court to cause problems as their leaders are arraigned. Reminds me of the biblical story of Haman, the man who prepared gallows to hang his enemy but ended up being hang on the same gallows himself.

  22. If only the Ministry of Health would get half this kind of assistance. Our hospitals would be good enough to keep Zambian politicians from seeking medical treatment in South africa

  23. Does the Zambian government under Edgar Lungu really have priorities ? KZ and your fellow di(kheads go to Kapisha in chingola and ask people out there what they feel about the economy and get a sense as to whether this should be a priority or not ? You lot are fvcking useless .You are worse than cholela and covid 19 put together .

  24. Ba KZ did you listen to your brother Lungu her is a force to recon with KZ economy what’s your comment dollar manje is touching k19 so what’s your say covid19 useless

  25. Clear preparation for the aftermath of rigging next year. How much was spent, where did it come from? There is no money for a lot more critical things but some splashing has begun into such areas. Are you spending the same in other areas of human endeavour?

  26. And yet they fail to pay salaries or pay pensioners.

    Tomorrow, they will be begging other countries for money and donations.

    We can see how this money is being spent. By buying armour and vehicles to quash opposing voices. From the amount of armour bought, one would think Zambia is getting ready to invade DRC or Rwanda.

    With Lungu, anything is possible.

  27. Citizens let us be serious.

    Why would a police car need a machine gun to police its own citizens ?

    These same weapons they are buying will be used against them.

    Lungu has gone mad.

  28. This is a sad development. Clearly the government of the day is not progressive on the issue of police disarmament. In China police officers do not have access to weapons. Matter of fact, guns are non existent in Chinese society. The police do not have guns so do the citizens, only the military is armed. The PF govt has showed a lack of priorities and instead of increasing salaries of the underpaid hardworking officers, they go and buy this crap to instill fear. Mind you an officer takes home around K3000 a month. What can you do with that change? What is wrong with you PF? Next year, I smell bloodshed in Zambia and unfortunately my friend Lungu, you are arming a monster which will annhilate the masses and you will answer at the hague. Mark my words. Such acts never end well. No man is…

  29. Most excellent! We must have Order on our streets.
