  1. Typical show of last minute “empowerment”. Lungu’s dishonesty knows no bounds. And how a true socialist can end up in the corrupt PF camp I guess we will never know. Everybody has their price……

  2. Even the criminal crucified with Jesus Christ defected at the last minute. Better late than never

  3. I like the mood in Kawambwa. Peaceful nominations and peace must prevail throughout. Well done ECZ and candidates for maintaining peace. We are but one people with different opinions and choices. Let’s respect that. Come 12 Aug let the people of Pambashe and indeed entire country cast their votes peacefully without fear or intimidation. One Zambia one Nation One People.

  4. Why get adopted and only defect on the last day? That is a sign of being insincere and unprincipled. Not that it matters because you were not going toin anyway!

  5. What a insincere and insensitive person she is. Is it only on the nomination day that she has known that the previous MP did a lot. I can only smell dollars in her pocket. Poverty can reduce people to beggars or corrupt.
