  3. Responsible government which ensures scientific advice is taken on board before making decisions. We still ask you all to be responsible and do not relax with compliance to social distancing. As for me I am headed to KAFUE THIS weekend. Boat chills. If you know me come and say hi. I don’t bite

  4. He has done well to reopen schools because the school calendar is already in jeopardy. The President lost an opportunity to properly bid farewell to Mr Speaker, he never get another opportunity to address Parliament before he becomes at ex-president. Anyway I can’t blame him, what can his Political Advisor advise him if he also a kandile, they’ll go together. This time around even ba Chitawala will vote. The PF must preparing for a Convention to elect another leader before this one causes them a humiliating defeat. There’s nothing new that Edgar will bring to the table, we ‘re fed up with his poor leadership

  5. @Ayatollah, what do you mean by “we”. Speak for yourself. The way I see it, a miracle needs to happen between now a elections day for Lungu to lose. Lungu might not be the best President Zambia has ever had but looking at the alternatives they a worse than him. The alternatives are in opposition for either bitterness, hate, selfishness, hurt or fired for corruption. None of these reasons are good reasons for being in opposition.

  9. UPND, the have to find something wrong from the speech and comment. They will never say it was a good speech. Just like a new car at the road block, the traffic officer has to find something wrong with the new car. The president alone cannot solve all our problems. Just like a salary cannot buy all the needs in the house.

  11. I was driving through Chibuluma road this morning this road goes past Mukuba Secondary school in Kitwe this road is just infront of Mukuba secondary School were the the Head state Dr.Edgar Chagwa Lungu used to go to. I tell you this road is dilapitated it’s a deplorable state such that it looks like it’s in a war torn country. But guess what I tuned on my car Radio only to hear the last part of the Presidentail Parliamentary Speech which went on to say Zambia is now better than we found it. I just said Woo with this type of Road going past his former Secondary School is better?? that brought to mind other things like the depreciation of the Kwacha,continous loadshedding,etc.Ya

  13. What ? Only a corrupt mind can support Lungu.You continue stealing but there is time to pay back. It may not be in your life time but you will surely pay, that I promise you…

  14. What about school fees? for this came in without a proper plan. You should have given us three month to source for school fees. we are broke as word itself. plan plan plan plan please.

  15. When are you going to walk the walk. Lungu with unfounded assurance often misunderstand economic development within Zambia because he is constantly pretending to care or trying to please people to take their toll on FAKE promises.

  16. Good move opening bar from 18:00hr to 23:00hr and from Friday to Sunday I like it. I think Nabaiche balachepako muma bar mwe

  17. Nafuti nafuti nafuti!

    Nafuti³

    PF 100%
    ECL 100%
    Elite Zambian Patriots 100%
    Zambia overdrive 100%
    As 2021fast approaches.

  18. The reopening of schools is a great move.
    But how do we prepare school fees in about 2weeks?
    Not all are well financially at the moment.
    Is it a free term? Or will school admins understand installment payments?

    About night club, forget social distancing… Do u know akamusango kabwalwa imwe?
