  1. The two Chiefs one from the north and the other from the east must be advised to stop being partisan and promote peace and unity. The law is very clear on the participation of Chiefs in politics. Rest well KK, You ran your race and made the nation very proud.

  2. Ba Lusaka times na imwe!! how do you photo of Panji and talk about KK. What are you implying imwe ba kolwe!
    Do you have editors to read your postings?

  3. Journalism involved facts, editing and accurate reporting. Lusaka times you have failed lamentably. You’re absolutely below reporting standards and you can make the nation dull if they continue reading your posts.

  4. Ba LT you need to educate your journalists and your editors. How can you surely put the photo of Col. Panji Kaunda when the story is about his father, our founding father of our nation? Learn to get serious especially that most of us are hyped with sorrow of losing one of the greatest statesman the world over, ever knew. May Dr Kaunda’s soul rest in peace.
