  1. i hope this is not about tribal dominance, tribal affiliation and tribal appeasement. One thing for sure is that politics has changed in Zambia to Regionalism and all this thanks to the PF. It shall forever be their ever lasting legacy.

  2. @2, PF has got nothing to do with tribalism in Zambia. Tribalism is the brain child of UPND right from UPND’s inception. Only a Tonga…blah,blah, blah. is inthe UPND constitution.Quota policiy is in the UPND constitution. This Tonga, that Tonga is only in the UPND, not any other party in Zambia- big or small. Long before PF won elections there was already Quota Policy in UPND. So, maybe just be proud of your child.

So you mean to tell me you haven’t seen serving ministers go campaign based on tribe, tell us or show us evidence of the other party doing that apart from the ruling party. Very hypocritical of the ruling party to accuse others of the same thing they are doing. PF has nothing to offer in the north but tribal speeches which everyone is tired of
