  1. Don’t say all bills. Just be magnanimous and say the bill which intends to prolong our stay in power which is bill 10 and this is despite you failing to perform as seen in all economic health indicators of the country. You have failed, MMD did a good job than you by far. Why can’t you morally leave, voluntarily please

  4. RUBBISH.WHAT DOES THE PARLIAMENT ACT?SIX MONTHS WHEN IT ELAPSES IT MEANS THE BILL HAS BEEN THROWN OUT.U ARE JUST TOO DESPERATE THAT PEOPLE SHOULD VOTE FOR ECL.PIG,THE WAY U ARE BEHAVING MORE LIKE SOMEONE WHOSE A DUNDERHEAD LIKE KZ.

  5. Kikikikiki…..so as usual when that evil Bill 10 is re-tabled, opposition members will walk out. PF: Zambia’s worst disaster. We want change, we want change.

  6. Replace useless bills with topics more worthwhile like:
    1. Why Zambia paying salary to an Ethiopian claiming to be a CEO at already privatized Zambian Airways for last 3years?

    2. Who is paying The PF cadre Milingo Lungu at a privatized KCM mine? What is its job there?

    3. What is update on the arrests in a case of a man addimited at UTH whose d!ck was cut just because his name is “Katuka”?
    4. There is a clear campaign video of a PF thug shouting on top of its voice to children about tribalism. It should be arrested for crimes against humanity.

  7. The fall of Tutwa will be so devastating, it will be like a steroid from outer space landing in a desert at full speed watch this space.

  8. Why is it that only ECL, Lusambo, and Tasila are the only ones enjoying. And why are we letting these guys treat us like this? Like they are entitled to rule us forever. Ine ukupapa mwe

  9. The likes of Tutwa know that without bill ten they have no jobs next year and that is why its a do or die matter for them. One wonders why they even want to cling to power when they have totally failed to manage the economy. What the exchange rate today?
