  1. If only African Freedom Day really helped Africans to reflect on where we hv come from, where we are now and where we want to be. Even as African leaders and their friends toast themselves to expensive wines and cakes, there are Africans right now trying to get to Europe, yes the same Europe that enslaved, colonised and humiliated the Africans, by any means possible. Will Edgar Lungu remember today the Africans dying in the Mediterranean trying to get to Europe because African governments are refusing to grow up and get their act right? Hw much does Africa spend on summit meetings?

  2. Another corrupt PF government opportunity to dish out some “empowerment” to loyalists. But you can bet your bottom dollar that only PFakers will receive awards – no opposition members will be in sight!
