  1. These elections are already a scam as said by Sishuwa Sishuwa. How do you explain the increased number of voters in the perceived PF strongholds and a glaring reduction of the numbers in the UPND strongholds. These elections have been rigged already. I’m surprised that the opposition is quiet about this. I know Western and North Western Provinces have small populations but mmmmm……something is very fishy here. Under normal circumstances the number of registered voters is supposed to increase everywhere. Why the reduction?? Unless in the event that the tables turn whereby the PF strongholds massively vote for the opposition

  2. Fake “born again” Christian calling other Zambians “evil hyenas” is total hypocrisy .Kachasu drinker probably.

  3. Its unfortunate bishop Maybin Mulenga is preaching a peaceful elections but the politicians see this period as do or die. The politicians have their own ways of doing things they pretend to listen attentively but do the opposite immediately they meet with their strategists. Its all systems to go.
