Good step! We want such action against UPND and its cadres as even they are roaming around the provinces and breaching the Covid-19 prevention guidelines.
And, HH is calling PF an incompetent government! He just knows, how to target the ruling party with lies and manipulate Zambians.
People are dying, please follow the Covid-19 guidelines for God’s sake!!!!! Covid-19 is real!!!! Wonder why such people even exist in Zambia!
Good decision by the government! If any nightclubs and bars are found open then the government must cancel their license! Nothing is above the lives of people!
If we all behave responsibly then there is no need for our government to take such serious or strict actions against defaulters.
Sad that some people are more focused on enjoyment rather than following the Covid-19 protocols.
People who are criticizing the PF government for the rising covid cases are the same people who are crushing the protocols. #Shame
If our government and law carry out an investigation then it will be proved that UPND is the super spreader of the deadly disease. Because of its leader, HH, and cadres third wave came into the country. #ArrestHH #UPND
THE TR00LLS ARE BACK KIKIKI
PF SHOULD BE D00MED TO HELL
ZAMBIA IS OUT OF CONTROL
ALL CAN SEE IT AND IF YOU CANT OPEN YOUR EYES
