  3. HH, Zambia’s richest politician, should also buy motorbikes which he should distribute to headmen. Besides, UPND members contribute K 500 each per month to the party.

  4. Chagwa should also distribute mirrors to all chiefs and headmen, so that they’re able to look themselves up and see how shortsighted they are. Eff off you scum bags ‘headless men’. Instead of asking for COVID vaccines, they want bicycles. Wankers!

  8. In American political discourse, states’ rights are political powers held for the state governments rather than the federal government according to the United States Constitution, reflecting especially the enumerated powers of Congress and the Tenth Amendment.

    Say no to top-down leadership, ukukubuta.

  9. HH, we know that you are one of the richest ” businessmen in Zambia” share some of your wealth to the Zambians. Village headmen need to move from one point to the other. We also know that in 2016 we saw politiciansincluding HH in the opposition hiring jets and Helicopters to fly all over the country, don’t pocket all the money given to you by your financiers share it with others, Don’t call others corrupt when they share their money either as gifts from their financiers or their own money.

  15. Check that song in the zambia Observer by the Luapula Boyz. Please help me give this message to the OPPOSITION ALLIANCE. ADVICE TO THE OPPOSITION PLEASE GIVE WORD TO THEM: THIS SONG GREATLY CAMPAIGNS FOR YOU. BUY THE RIGHTS FROM THIS GUYS AND GIVE THEM SOMETHING FOR THE GREAT ARTISTIC WORK. THEN REPRODUCE IT AND DISTRIBUTE IT FOR FREE COUNTRYWIDE, IT HAS ALL THE MESSAGE YOU NEED TO HARM PF POLITICALLY.

  16. Hand outs and endorsing. This is madness. Zambians we’re still into the politics of handouts surely? What is it that Lungu is proposing to do that he has failed to do in the past 6 years?
