Every dog has its day
Congrats Hon. I hope I will work hard to reach this level
There’s nothing wrong for any individual to own expensive luxuries. The question is how true this cadre earn his wealth to purchase this helicopter.
Why is it when these so called people become ministers and presidents they become millionaires/ billionaires but before that they are paupers
Look at the lusambo a street thug before becoming a minister and now a multi millionaire. A grade 12 drop out with no qualifications
Hon. Joe Malanji is a long time business man, if he bought this it’s because he deserves it and from his hard earned money.
Congratulations to him.
Bwafya.. Africa will remain 3rd world for ages to come.
@Scouser. Malanji is a different story.
Kwena ba PF mwatusangusha ifipuba ifwe ba Zambia. Bushe ngakwiba nifi?
We have business people like Trade Kings. Look at thier owners. Do they splurge thier wealth in public.
Thier wealth is infinite. Let’s look at malanjis business revenue, is he paying taxes.
But ACC will go to Asians and harass them in paying taxes and going through thier accounts.
How many black businessman are paying true taxes
Well done Mr. Joe Malanji. No problem with any one acquiring assets. We are happy because we know you are not in that category that of people who don’t do straight things. And it is also good that you donate generously to your constituency, however the biggest problem in your constituency id unemployment and handouts don’t help much. I would advise that maybe you put up a constituency employment committee with specifics tasks, documenting the unemployed, what skills they have, and also importantly opening up agricultural land and form various cooperatives
A simple google search on the Bell 430 helicopter will reveal the prices:
Brand new:$ 8 million
Used (1996 model- present):$ 5.9 million – $ 6.2 million .
While the majority of Zambians live on less than $ 1 a day, a PF government minister can afford a private helicopter.
A wealthy man like HH who has been in business for decades does not even own one.
Where is this money coming from suddenly .
A helicopter for what? Campaigning? Picking premarked ballot papers?
Pray that you retain your seat and Eddie is president
Work hard also and buy yours. Does it mean I should be poor because you are poor? When you were sent to school by your parents, you used to abscond thinking that will feed you in future. Work hard in your sphere and make a difference. Do not compare where it can’t be compared. Buy what can fit your pocket.
PF in the most are very dull, the lot of them.
Especially their media teams. They have no clue about out the value in keeping ahead of the information curve……very dull.
Knowing this story will break…..The PF media team needed to write an article about the businessman milanji before and while in politics , information like this cancels perceptions of corruption and enhances the PF image…
It could be that the Helicopter is for someone else (A bigger fish), whilst Joe is only a front or rather caretaker.
congrats hon it means you have managed resources you were paid or its good debt . Not long ago its was a probable case to buy a phone as a civil servant but today its a need.
Helicopters are death traps.Kobe Bryant, George Saitoti -a former Kenyan veep,John Garang -a South Sudanese independence leader, Colin McRaer -a British rally driver ..famous people who died in helicopter crashes .
Failures in diaspora cannot fathom how hard working zambian are. People are doing well here. You need to visit and see your own friends you left behind who are owning businesses and making movements. You are there abroad cleaning toilets and working 20 hours a day for minimum wage then you come here to spill your jealousy. Fuseke
Independent so we should live our lives like hh? Are you mad? Who the hell is he? A f00l who stole privatisation money. Malanjiis a self made successful business man who never stole from privatisation. The two are very different. He can do as he pleases with his money. For me I even bought a new motorbike. Powerful machine
A case of getting rich when in govt. These guys must be earning a lot of money aayi? I think all Zambians must be aspiring to be in politics as it is the short cut to get wealthy
Kachenje Chibale if their cadres can be making money videos what more these top guys?
I know Mr Malanji that he is was a big businessman before Politics i cant be surprise with this, he was richer than HH before Mr Malanji became a minister.
You can have anything you want in life. All it takes is Wisdom, Smart Thinking, Hard Work and knowing how to make good Investments
We call it conspicuous consumption na kulibonesha. Let’s see what happens in the not too distant future.
Hon Malanji Riches are success of a hard working businessman, the problem with Zambians its all politicking.
Leave the Honourable minister alone. He is not the first person to rip off Zambia and neither will he be the last one. People such as HH became a multimillionaire in US dollars at the age of 27 suddenly with no track record of business. The difference is HH does not flaunt his wealth where as these others do. Cry my beloved mother country Zambia.
Let learn to work hard as Zambian, this country is blessed with a lot of resource, just like Hon Malanji he was rich before he joined politics.
Even a Car, an Air Plane, Motor Cycle and Bicycle – are all death traps. On any given day, you can die from a Plane Crash, Car Accident, or being hit with a car while cycling.
Lets learn to embrace success. Doing so it helps others to get aspire to high grounds
This ambulance will be used as air ambulance and disaster response after August.
Worry not citizens.
That is very shallow thinking. Life is a personal choice.
Just because HH does not own a helicopter, then all Zambians should be afraid to own one. What anyone does with their money the have earned is their business.
Are you the type of a person who has to get permission from some one to buy what you want to have in life. Or the life style you should have?
Kaizar in developed nations like the one you are in, the serving leaders lose wealth while those serving in Zambia triple theirs. Are our leaders even working or busy with their businesses. Also in this time of covid businesses are struggling how is malanji making it when big companies are folding up
If there is any MP who will be difficult to beat in the August elections it is honourable Joseph Malanji. He was a successful businessman even before he became a politician. He is one of the few MPs to have bought a Marco Polo bus that he has put at the disposal of his constituents in Kwacha, Kitwe. He allocates money on a monthly basis for fuel for running this bus for use for funerals and all manner of activities for his constituents. There are other things he has been doing there. Another MP who will be difficult to beat will be honourable Kampamba Chewe for Kalulushi. Her numerous works in the town to the service of her constituents speak volumes for her. Honourables Malanji and Chewe are not capitalistic like HH who even lends money to UPND candidates wanting to stand as MPs and have…
… to pay him back with interest. Meanwhile, UPND cadres in civil service contribute to the party on a monthly basis and that money gets into HH’s account who controls it.
Downloaded images…these Helicopter pictures are not even in Zambia…it could be fake news
Also in this time of covid
What businessman? I know Malanji from National breweries when he used to own mini buses. That business went under he went into supplying. Let him just tell us where he got all that money because as far as I know. He never made money to that extent.
That is very shallow thinking
Audit trail- What has Mr Malanji got to his name as a declaration of his personal assets before he became minister? Go on KZ list the assets?
We agree that he was a business man even before he joined politics. I remember all his businesses going under around 2005. He only picked up after joining politics! I used to take my vehicle for service at one of his businesses (Gibson & Gibson )
PF needs to go this year. They are all thieves and have no heart for zambian people including ECL.
The kid is rich, he is rich, hot his own chopper!
Next time, call it a chopper not a helicopter.
Next it’s me. Don’t say its Government’s money.
Now stop all your phd yada yada.
Fuel, hangarage, insurance, maintenance, crew. I feel for the minister, unless he puts his new toy to work its will cost him al lot more then he paid for it.
Fuel, Hangarage, Insurance, Maintenance, Crew, Landing fees, Navigation fees, Licensing fees. The minister should put his toy to work, else it will cost him a lot more then what he paid for it.
When they are in govt they think they are smart businessmen …really laughable…look at BUFFOON CK he cant even afford a ticket to London now for a cup of tea…this why lifestyle audit is paramount but the opposition is sleeping as usual even to attempt to pass a bill.
@Souser you’re right. His ZRA account should tell whether is laundered wealth or genuine income..
Tarino must be very dull boy. How can you say kambwili cannot afford plane ticket to London when he had over 160,000 pounds lying around in his home.? That is money you will never earn in your life and you are here with that your big mouth saying rubbish
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.
Never mind rich Zambians whose wealth passes through our banking sector. If you hold huge chunks of cash outside the economic system, you will be gasping for air like a fish out of water. That cash will not help you to but any air so that you pay for distorting our economy.
Look at 27bn debt increasing as we speak is the source of this helicopter.
Iwe iyo this is not necessary ba Minisita
Why are people wasting their time commenting on Hon. Joe Malanji acquiring a chopper which he has bought. The man has been in business for a long time. Its difficult to hide money or wealth at one point there is that urge to show off. As for broher Hon . Joe Malanji has just done that. No situation remain static this is the beginning we are yet to see these honourables showing off their wealth as we go towards elections.
Tarino , You are right….. about trolls… There is one troll on this blog who makes me SICK!!!
What does this got to do with people who are abroad? leave us alone, who said cleaning toilets is a sin or suicidal? People have built homes with the toilet cleaning money. continue with that attitude while people are progressing through cleaning toilets !!! its better than stealing people`s money and becoming rich overnight.
