    I forgive the upnd diasporans who have insulted me all because I am mourning

  3. MHSRIP. Ba LT please do some editing before you publishh your story. You are in a field where many people read your articles. One typing error in a very short article like this is one too many. Micheal “Sara” , Simon “miri,””Fifth” predisdent after a coma (f), “Chingww” district in Lusaka? etc much as we appreciate your provision of information, this careless typing is un acceptable. Please go through your work before publishing it.

  4. That’s a decent burial, at his village. Not gather at that cathedral in Lusaka and go to your Lusaka cemetery for the “famous”.

  5. These were proper Ministers of Justice in Sata’s govt not the moron we have today who is a Agriculture Diploma holder in the name of Bo Lubinda masquerading for Lazy Lungu.
