  1. You have Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU) for a reason but this La7y B um Lungu as usual once again he wants to campaign. Pilato was right when he said they want you to be poor not smart so they can hand you gifts like what Bowman is doing rejoicing when he sees people queuing for food outside his house imagine 50 years after independence.

  2. Ba Edgar bena tamwaba… why get so moved by Mmembe? 2 days ago, Fred said “Edgar won’t buy off votes this election season “. And today Edgar start jumping up and and down with fertilizers. Why is scared of leaving presidential house?

  3. As I reflect on the past year, I have to say that his excellency EC Lungu definitely takes the top spot for leader of the year. This man is my role model and hero. Ba diaspora how is life uko nama lockdown. Happy new year you evil snakes
