  1. We knew we already had their support. Even the tongas in upnd strongholds are telling us that they are voting pf. They have had enough of voting for a myopic dog like hh. August he will cry like a pregnant dog

  2. Exactly what are these people smoking? Lungu for re-election? When you see Kaizar Zulu opinionated about PF/Lungu, then you know we need so many pyschiatrists in this country, and I feel sorry for our country. Ati Dr. Lungu? What a joke? I feel like puking. I have a real doctorate, worked for it, and wasn’t given to it like Lungu’s Kachasu. If Lungu wins, that is the end of Zambia as we know it. I will leave. And I will have River Zambezi for sale.
    I just bet $100,000 with a friend about Lungu’s/PF election loss.

  3. Like seriously….so is this the only Zambian capable of being President of Zambia for 3 terms…..which is even against Zambian constitution…remember Lungu himself said ” I cannot go beyond 2021″…….now I understand what it means when people say Zambians are never serious…they take everything as a joke

  4. Kaizar Zulu….am not UPND but please HH is not a dog… him a thief if you want just like Edgar Lungu is a thief…but he is human being just like you….

  5. Anonymous tell the upnd supporters to stop insulting our president and I might withdraw my statement. Until then it stands
