  1. Insala yamwa Lungu ngatawibile kunya amenshi.,
    There are too many starving people in Zambia so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of food.
    The couple’s marital dispute was because they had no money in their pockets as promised by PF instead of voting wisely they danced to dununa music. It can never end well.

  2. Dear Dununa,
    Is this the first time this has happened in Zambia .? Do you know the circumstances that lead to that sad development?. I think your conclusion is so weak and premature . Do not link everything to politics of the day.
    Yes, we shall vote wisely and we have been voting wisely. Do not suppose that we do not know how to vote. Your thinking also shows that you are not an analytical thinker who can analyze our political leaders who are promising fake economic fix over night,

  3. It always ends this way for Men who can’t satisfy their wives. Leave the woman so that other men who are stronger than you can do thr right thing, rather than force her in relationship where she is starved and forced to seek ntwenu elsewhere. You then find out and kill her then take your own life. This is a upnd coward
