  1. P.M. pass comments based on the feature article. Your incessant attacks on President Lungu is no throughput to winning 2021. It seems you have your brains slime and drool.i.n.g.

  2. Tonga are respected and do succeed in diaspora, not in Lusaka. Under PF that man can’t be nominated to parliament or permanent secretary.

  3. @Nostradamus, that position one must be sponsored her/his country who is also member of AU, and this case must have been sponsored by Republic of Zambia
