The PF roadshow continues to super spread covid with an empty coffin…they have absolutely no shame at all.
Very emotional road show. As a patriot I feel proud of my country and government

Look at them …these are people who are flying from Lusaka to Kasama and have been doing so everywhere the empty coffin has been, and you factor in the soldiers and security. This is clearly a govt that has no care for covid-19 guidelines…am sure they will be more saddened when KK is put in the ground as the allowances being accrued will cease.
Road show, what is it trying to sell? Why are last remains of our beloved president moved around than burying him to reztbinNpeace? It is a disgrace to treat coffin in such disrespectful manner just for PF stooges to get hefty allowances. Politicking 9n dead bodies!
Good point, why Chanda Kabwe receiving so much “allowances” following ba KK’s body, but Panji is getting NOTHING?
Nostradamus – Please adhere to my advise dear friend and go to sleep ..sober up and come back tomorrow !!
