  1. RIP.

    I hope my bro lusambo will attend my new year’s party. I have your favourite drink. Just don’t drink and drive.

  2. Bowman you cannot cherry pick who to help. Every poor Zambian deserves help from the government. You continue to peddle partisan assistance, shameful. Well, those that are not getting your help are counting down to your party being kicked out. Good riddance in advance
