Joe Biden didn’t just drop from a privatization scandal to seek the presidency like some clown who want to project themselves as Joe Biden of Zambia
He is an experienced politician and leader. He served twice as Vice President of America from 2009 to 2017:He was a running mate to Obama for 2terms.
He started as a County Councillor in 1970, then served as Senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009.
Americans have learnt their lessons of entrusting national leadership to a businessman with no experience in governance. Trump was criticizing the chinese in public kanshi he owns a private bank account in China, Typical of shrewed businessmen like one in Zambia.
We dont have to repeat the mistake made by Americans to realise how dangerous it is to have a businessman with no governance experience for a President
Had to argue with this one
Very funny, praising Joe Biden who has not even proven himself yet. The guy has not even been sworn in
What is the point?
In one of his satires, Kalaki told us how one short shrewd fellow cut the balls of the dead giant Elephant Muwelewele and sewed them to his small body. He looked funny in his stature to have such a huge package below. However he kept jumping from side to side whilst bragging that he was a Tonga Bull! That was a befitting description of our man. He likes to put himself where he isn’t. He likes to compare himself to what he’s not. Next year even new-comers will do better than him. He’s a fraud. We know him well and we can’t make that mistake. When we say Edgar must go we don’t mean that he must be replaced by the 5 time loser, far from it!
So from the foregoing the writer is urging the people of Zambia to vote wisely and not vote for the Trumps of Zambia.
No substance in this article. The usual Zambian way of lack of in depth analysis of events. Donald Trump despite not being a councilor had the best economy America has not seen in years before Covid came to ravage it. What is the use of putting experienced people when inflation is double digit, reserves are gone, exchange rate is haywire, unemployment at its highest and all these started way before Covid. We are looking for people who are going to work – experience or no experience, and be careful that experience at times means getting bad experience like the situation obtaining in Zambia now. The good MMD economy totally ravaged by the so called experience
Hollow article, no comment
Nonse.nse. To hell with you.
Nonse,nse, To hell with you
You cant compare HH to Donald Trump. Yes HH is a businessman but has been in politics and having lost kaya how many times is better placed. Lets not disqualify pipo for personal haterade but let the majority voters decide.
Save us the trash please. You have no right to issue such insinuations in the midst of a failed leadership.
In Zambia, some politicians think they are born to rule. They want to go directly to the top post and that too despite being tainted in massive corruption. It is like taking the wheel of a car without knowing even how to start it.
Kwekwekwekwekwekwe….look how the upnd donkeys go ballistic when someone exposes their ka bally chap.
Yaba naseka. I have been saying this all along. From the upnd diasporans reactions you can see that the truth hurts.
They might want to change their demigod name to hajoe habiden
With the way they have brought the economy to its knees this chap can still afford to laugh. Strange.
Eish many Zambians will remain id!ots for many years to come. People like Salma Kapwepwe are just useless id!ots who know nothing about life. Shame on Zambia.
@Chibwe: Isn’t Cheswa Kapwepwe entitled to his opinion in a democracy and free speech?? Is democracy and free speech only accepted when it is directed at PF and Edgar Lungu???
It is anyone’s guess how an inexperienced person will run the government. This is not a private limited company which can be operated as per whims and fancies of the owner. This is the country and matter of lives and deaths of millions of people.

Iwe, Kaizar Zulu, you have really made m laugh. Ati the UPND praise singers would want to change the name of their demi-god to Hajoe Habiden. Except, their version of Hajoe Habiden would not fit that of the real Joe. They always told us, they wanted a younger leader. Joe Biden does not certainly fit the bill. The one who does is narcisstic Don Trump who is a con businessman like the Zambia Hajoe Habiden.
How can they claim to be Joe Beden now when they compared themselves to Trump a businessman. So for them whoever wins they join. I have never seen such a party.UPND was supporting Trump how can it change it’s position after the fellow billionaire loss.I can’t trust such a party.PF please start registering your people in strong holds.Ba Kaizer Zulu tell ba Lungu to make sure sure PF in it’s strongholds people register. Winning election is now.
Moscow we are spreading the message and have been working on the ground. We also plead with you to share the message with all your friends and family. We thank you so much
My simple question to Mr Hakainde Hichilema. Would he appoint a rookie as MD of his company? Won’t he seek his experience and test his abilities to run the business successfully? Then how can he give the advantage to himself?
Joe Biden has suddenly become role model of many in Zambia. They are seeing him in the White House. But these clowns have no time to take a look at his political journey spanning over more than five decades, which is even longer than the age of their party in Zambia. Day dreaming is not a crime, by the way.
Like it or not, we are choosing who we want and all the usual rigging points will be shut off this time
Salma Cheswa Kapwepwe you are wise.
MUNI YELLOW WAKO! ITS YOUR OPINION.
They have dumped Trump after realising that most millionaires are thieves like our own. They were using the same trump to threaten our leader. Ni ba muselela kwa kaba. No direction.
I can’t agree more with this statement. Americans have learnt their lessons of entrusting national leadership to a businessman with no experience in governance! A businessman with zero administrative, political and diplomatic experience can never be a good ruler. America has shown that and did a course correction. Zambia can learn from the mistake and prevent it altogether.
Awe koma naine naseka.. ati Elephant Muwelewele. LoL!
Lusaka Times has finally capitulated to be an appendage of PF regime propaganda machinery.
The article appearing on your online news outlet is not newsworthy. Instead of helping Zambia to strengthen the ECZ to deliver credible lections by ensuring PF does not sabotage our democratic process by issuing more than one NRCs to individuals and underage Zambians being issued with NRCs, LT is preoccupied with its partisan stand on alluding not to vote for a particular party and individuals. Its a shame to be masquerading as a news outlet, when in fact pursuing a propaganda agenda. Learn lessons from the defunct Post newspaper and individuals who owned it are paying the price personally. A timely warning.

PAN….IWE,USALENGESE KUTI NITUKWANE PANO KA?
YOUR ARTICLE GAT NO SUBSTANCE,IT IS FOR SMALL BRAINED PEOPLE LIKE UYU NDANI,MENTIONING HIS NAME IS A SHEER WASTE OF TIME.
HONESTLY THE CLOWNS ARE BUSY HEAPING THEIR INCOMPETENCY ON COVID-19.THE ECONOMY IS AT ITS WORST IN THE HISTORY OF ZAMBIA IF AM NOT MISTAKEN AND WHO THE HELL ARE YOU???? GET THE FVCK OUTTA HERE!!!!!!!!!!
Those who are experienced in theft of clients money are also experienced in wiping out the treasury and in borrowing to steal.
Zambians made a mistake of trusting a drunker with country resources.
All the resources has been changed with a bottle of jemason and shake shake beer..
Now he has also made our country broke and people are suffering now , Dollar 21 kwacha ubunga in shangombo is K190-200 one bag and you say all is well, debts owed by country 27billion dollar’s from 3-6 billion in MMD government.
When we go to vote let’s not vote because of is comes from chipata or mazabuka let’s just vote to save our country because if we allow people like bena lusambo to rule again all national asset’s will be confiscated due to unpaid Debts.
ANYONE CAN govern. Every experience a person has can be turned into something if they are intelligent. You can have a shepherd boy turned into a king. Donald Trump did not fail as President of the USA. 70 million Americans voted for him. That is more than the population of the United Kingdom! Unless taking a second term of office, no one has experience as President. Kaunda became Prime Minister and was heavily assisted by the British colonial civil service. After independence, he began to choose boot lickers and it went downhill all the way. The civil service in Zambia is broken and unprofessional and when it is professional, they get fired. Example: Kasolo. Governance is the civil service.
LT have standards …how do you post an article as if its some drunkard spewing gibberish in a pub…these are poor unstructured articles that encourage poor reading culture!!
Red colour is loosing the election, tell me why.
This is an excellent article. It clearly shows that you dont need to draft a long thesis to vividly describe the political situation with the upnd. It took this lady only few paragraphs to hit home with the truth. Now look how the tribal bigots are insulting lusakatimes for allowing freedom of speech by publishing this article yet they never complain when that son of a female dog hanthony publishes his faeces here
Wait, you see how we vote him to plot state house.
Interesting to watch us becoming a nation of duplicitous minds; doublespeaking and sidestepping real issues facing Zambia. Not contributing to productive dialogue, but advancing and entrenching some unexamined received wisdom from the mind of one Fred M’membe when he sought to install himself as Kingmaker pushing a partisan agenda.
You may convince yourself not to vote for a particular person, you may even convince your entire clan. But how does that solve the flooding issues in Kanyama, the perpetually evaporating value of the kwacha etc.
It is absurd to believe that the likes of Dora Siliya saved their best ideas for 2021 and after. What will they do that they couldn’t do with 9 years in office with $18 billion. The last 9 years were just a dyonko, now they will show us…
We dont need to elect a clown to be president, we already have one as president.
This article is too simplistic and lacks deep understanding of Democracy and the way it operates in the western world. 99.9% of people who aspire for public office are very rich business men. Their system is based on raising money to campaign and support free speech. Many of them don’t come across as business men because they don’t directly run their businesses like Jeff Bezos or Michael Bloomberg etc. When Obama contested Presidential Elections that made him President in 2008 he was already a millionaire running a successful Legal firm. In Zambia we have this misconception that experience must be in Politics, no. During the struggle for independence, if you talk to Freedom Fighters, they will tell you that they came from different backgrounds, eg Dr. Kaunda was a Trade Unionist Mr…
Obama was not a millionaire but managed to mobilise resources
The cleanest person to lead is Kaizer Zulu. Let’s work together and put him on the seat! He is like Biden, loyal and wise.
Its not a sin to drink beer, but its a sin to steal resources that belong to Zambians and pretend you worked for the money and you are best economist, when you are just a big crook! The ten commandments in bible do not talk about drinking beer as a sin, but Tongas dream so, just because one Edgar they envy so much drinks beer! What hatred! Your Hichilema should just quit politics because nothing favours him! You called him Hadonald Hatrump in 2016, now that Trump has proved to be a big failure , you are now calling Hajoe Habiden! Copy cats don’t work! Each and every person is made in a different way, so to imagine that because Joe Biden has won, so a thief and tribalist called Hichilema will also win in 2021, is comical and madness! Elections are not won on internet you Tongas. You can…
What a uselessness article without substance. First the author concludes that HH stole from privatization. The author just heard. If she has proof let her take HH to court. She shows how dull she is about privatization. In the first place Edith Nawakwi should be the last person to talk about that because she failed Zambians by failing to apply due diligence. Many of those ministers bought state assets at a give away price, and failed to run those same assets. She is trying to please PF in exchange of something. That is not being patriotic to the nation.

Matumbo kindly read the history or life story of Barrack Obama in his book THE AUDACITY OF HOPE, As far as you are concerned if you mobilize resources you cant be a millionaire, Mobilizing resources or money for Elections is legal in the US . Kindly read the book or visit the State Department website.
Support 200%. We will not vote for racketeers and traitors
