  2. Good development.

    I have just received intelligence that hh has made some improvement but that he is still unresponsive and that there maybe permanent damage to his brain

  3. KZ’s intelligence….. HAHAHAAAA. Share that WhatsApp photo that allegedly you say you received. Not forthcoming huh?! So that was yet another corrupt PF invention and lie. Talking about permanent damage to somebody’s brain: just maybe this is more about your corrupt boss than anybody else…..

  4. Let’s also teach these communities to also work hard ..subjecting them to free things is one reasons why poverty keeps skyrocketing becsuse some Z ambians especially youths only want free things or do simple activities yet demanding more money. When you subject someone with a poverty or lacking mindset to free things, they will not see value in it infact yoi make them more poorer. What we need is start subjecting people from young people on savings, financial knowledge, networking, businesses etc

  5. PF stop wasting resources, you can’t win in Kaoma. Maybe in Mwandi constituency with Iris.
    I want Iris to win, she may change ugly picture of PF.

  6. We must have elections every two years. It seems elections unlock money for development…now there is money for every problem..bwafya…
