  1. Primitivity is what you are doing here – just because you encountered some Kaondes of behavior not to your liking, this does not give you the right to blanket ALL Kaondes with the same attribute

  2. The journalist reporting this story has presenting it half-baked. How do you know explain what ‘chikondo’ is when it seems to be central to the story!? The quality of the reporting leaves much to be desired.

  3. I think the coffin was headed towards corrupt individuals hence quick intervention by the police.

    Vote wisely.

  4. The issue of pointing a Tribe because of one person’s mistake is a grave danger to society. Please stop it. no tribalism in Zambia. we all make mistakes but it does not mean that we all wrong for one mistake.
