    These seats are for us to create
    Something which Zambians will
    Remember you for.Wish you full

  4. RB has done well to go public about his fight against cancer. He’s befits to play the role of a goodwill ambassador to speak for so many people that need help. The Cancer Diseases Hospital is full of people in a similar situation and need help. RB can speak for them

  5. I wonder why you people are morning yet. He is just fine. The only problem is Edgar who has even refused to forgive Guy Scott. Edgar has terrible heart, lets wait and see when he get back his illness.

  6. A quick recovery for the former president. Jesus Christ took all our sickness, including cancer and by His stripes you are healed sir. Isaiah 53:5
