  1. Mubita Nawa was saying some K6 million PF kwachas was given to someone to make face-masks? To me it sound’s like more than 40million masks. That’s 2 masks per each Zambian. So what happened with that production?

  2. Sooner or later this virus will run out of people to infect because the majority of the people are now getting immune. I don’t see the need of any vaccine. Once in our lifetime, African leaders should stand together and do something right for their people and say “NO!” to any foreign vaccines. Our people adapt and learn to live with hardships much faster than those in the western world.

  3. Hats off to President Lungu for now bowing to pressure to reopen bars and schools. Your team is doing well Hon Chilufya. We owe u gratitude

  4. Nine chale your wife is very lucky to have a patriot like you. I wish you could teach these other angry diasporans about being patriotic with pro African. These boys are brain washed
