  2. why you never investigated right at the time it was reported in the media? Did you have to wait for the then minister to be removed?
    A little pharmacy by the corner wins a tender worth millions and you just sit on your laurels until the whole country gets infected with std;s un knowillingly that is when you start to do your job?
    To whom do you report.hey?
    Problem you think we are so gullible-

  3. Stealing in this manner in Zambia is a reflection of our upbringing. One doesn’t become corrupt because they have ascended to a higher position. It is a reflection of who they are and the home they come from. Therefore when Police officer, Mp, PS, Manager, Director, Supervisor, an employee, maid, etc steal is reflection of who we are as a society. The rush to become rich quickly (poverty mentality) It doesn’t matter which party is ruling, for as long as there are people the vice will continue. Some steal in political office, some in Church, workplaces etc. We need to change.

  4. We warned this lady that when the day of reckoning comes these politicians and businessmen she thinks she is working with will never show their faces…they will just pull strings in the background just pray Lazy Lungu wins in August as you will send the rest of your time in courts. Did you not learn anything from that lady who took her life who used to Zambia Agriculture Union after she looted funds.

  5. Its laughable to think that a civil servant can have so much influence on a procurement of a $17 million Health contract whilst the minister is oblivious to what going on especially if his name is Dr. Chitalu Chilufya in a party of thieves.

  6. Iwe KZ you one ignorant monkey.

    Change is coming. You better run cause you will lingering in solitary confinement and getting raped day in day out

  7. Did they really write “The Commission has since assured the nation that it will pursue all cases of corruption diligently and to their logical conclusion.” ??

    What a joke, this party really had a fun with the country’s finances l

  8. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “Don’t feed the trolls.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.

    You should try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how poorly they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re not worth your time of day.

  9. She was stealing with that useless minister and dull Lungu, don’t think she did it alone, anyway every body in p0rn front party is a thief even their children and unborn children all thevies

  10. All that money was shared by a few individuals leaving the masses to suffer. Unfortunately, there is no justice in country. Hoping for something fair to come out of this investigation is wishful thinking.

  11. And this is just what has come to light. What about all the other issues which have been hidden or swept under the carpet.

  12. PF party / government have some little sense of shame, you send an heavily armed troop of cops to HH ‘s inlaws. Chilufya, gassers and FIC people especially, Honeybee murderers moving around freely. We have reported all that to the Lord and God will judge you very soon
