  1. This is very sad- when nature and narture clash. I remember many years ago when I fought with a buffalo whilst on safari holiday. In fact I saved the lives of two careless diasporans who were annoying the animal. The two f00ls learned a lesson.

  2. Buffaloes are dangerous animals.

    I remember many years ago while on a safari holiday, my friend and I mistook a buffalo for a cow and started milking it. It nearly killed us both.

    Luckily, this skinny man with yellow teeth in our group fought the buffalo and rescued us.

    He said he was a lab cleaner so we gave him a 5 dollar tip. We even had dinner together that night, buffalo stew, of course.

    I just wish I could remember his name. Oh well, anyway, such is life.

  3. Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as c0ckey, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding.

  4. Why do have to let bushmeat kill us? And imagine on judgement day…..you are asked of how you died…only to tell God that it was bushmeat…Ndiyo that killed me….to hell!

  5. @Kajimano, lol. Good thing people don’t know what you are saying.
    At everyone else, please learn to appreciate sarcasm, that’s what the impostor from the UK would say.

  6. @4 Indigo Tyrol, yeah!!!! That friend of yours was me! I remember that pompous tiny jerk with yellow incisors who whispered to the buffalo to let us go unharmed. He also claimed to be a ‘Mouse Dundee’ from the east.

  7. Kaizar COVID Zulu….the real Kaizar Zulu made headlines on Zambian watchdog yesterday and this fake Kaziar Zulu is busy on Lusaka Times

  8. Why do you Zambians report of whereabouts of the dead body?? Deposited there… This country is fvcked up for real.

  9. The buffalo belongs to a private ranch (there are some whites in this area who are engaged in commercial game farming) and the owners must be held responsible for loss of life. It is unacceptable to lose a life this way.
