    This is ridiculous… what for, parading the body of a dead person amid the alleged COVID-19 pandemic. Did you see Prince Philip being paraded across the UK? Please just let the old man rest in peace and stop this f00lish showboating for political expediency. They want to distract the Zambian people from their incompetence. Unbelievable!

  4. We deserved national funeral. I have volunteered my time and my company work force to help facilitate the logistics for the national burial. I am not claiming any money for it because it is the least I can do to thank our father Kk. We have not had a single donation from HH. Evil hearted man

  6. KZ the UK based troll and imposter has his not existing company workforce working tirelessly to facilitate the lining of his pockets. You have done NOTHING for KK in the past so don’t start your hypocritical talk now. And Edgar China Lungu is laughing his head off for all the free campaigning publicity. PF: Lying about everything, not delivering anything!

  11. Normal and decent people are mourning our president and reduced presence on LT.
    Fu.uls are busy arguing. Your actions are dishournering KK.
    Its sad he had to die during covid period, he deserved a galantly funeral, and a state bariel. This lonely, for a man of KK caliber.
    MHSRIP – Wamuyayaya, One Zambia One Nation and Tiyende Pamodzi reigns on forever !

  12. The question is where is Lazy Lungu? All this is just distraction whilst they can have time to cook something in the background. Let me check Flight radar 24 website to see if our aircrafts 9J-ONE and AF001 have made some trips this week.

  13. We want to see the body of our founding father. The one FTJ ignorantly accused of curving the tunnels at state house.
    We need to see our wamuyayaya in that coffin, the one FTJ hired bullets missed. How dare FTJ?
    Me I will go and see.
    Why are the 5tup!d !d!0+s against this development?
    I want to see all people of color white, yellow, brown, pink, black go give the last respect of our late leader super Ken, Kumulu nilesa panshi ni Ke Ke!
    In 1986 KK wept and reduced the price of Mealie Meal. Ine I will body view mwe.

  15. PF think they are clever by insisting on parading the casket of former President KK to the ten provinces. Voters already know this is a campaign ploy for the entire PF to sell themselves to them so to speak. This is outrageous. ECL is now a dictator, the obstacle to normal LIFE. He can’t listen to anyone including the bereaved KK family on funeral arrangements. KK has way older sons who are grandparents to take control of the funeral and not PF. The goodness though is that voters on the ground know all about PF tricks.

  16. Numbers; #10, #14, #16 and #17. I like you guys…let’s continue to encourage our fellow Zambians to vote wisely and vote for change come August 12. The voters are a change unto themselves. They have the power through the ballot to effect CHANGE.

  17. Most likely this is an empty casket. But even if KK’s body is in it, what’s the point of taking a dead body around the country like this? Ba PF don’t know this is putting people at risk of contracting COVID, once they begin to gather in masses to take a glimpse of the body? What will this accomplish? Just wasting time and resources. Yes we loved KK. He was a great leader and a true father of the nation. He educated most of us. He cared more about educating Zambians than these PF id1ots we have now. Body viewing should’ve only taken place in Lusaka. Let the man rest in Peace.
