  1. Um! All Bemba names. After PF, i can bet Zambians will take 100years to be able entrust a Bemba into Public office again, this tribe has managed to decampaign itself – now and in future. There are claims of Tongas being tribal but i doubt, and very much doubt that it is to this level, where an entire ministry Top to Bottom is managed by one tribe. If you go into HH’s companies today(number one tagged tribal), you will find that he has employed the whole nation, including Indians and Whites. Pure non tribal, non racist, and he is still a private citizen, Based on this, do you think he would become tribal in public office, if he wasnt tribal in private office?

  2. Brian may have his limitations but having someone of his profile as MP and in cabinet was of great benefit to the country. A real pity that PF can fail to see this and sacrifice him for someone of such low calibre like Chomba. Such is what indicates that the party does not mean well for the country.

  3. Go well engineer mushimba we appreciate your contrubution in our High education achievements.

  4. Its unfortunate that PF Central Committee traded Brian Mushimba for Dobadba man like Eddie Chomba. Any way when you talk scrap and lies that is when one is noticed by the powers be. May be Mushimba was under performing or had some problems in his private life that the BIG eyes were able to see.
