  1. Congratulations ba Majorie and all the best in your new appointment! Let’s hope you’re doing the right thing there by negotiating better terms for African countries. Yours and other competent brains are needed at BOZ to help manage Zambia’s finances.

  2. Way to go. May God open more doors in your life. If you can see it in your mind, you can have.

  3. Meanwhile in Zambia we have Christopher Mvunga as BOZ Governor an accountant and seasoned hardcore drunkard.

  4. Well done, Zambians are high flyers except in the political field where we have been a disaster and failing to use our God given resources to move people out of poverty. Very disappointed with Presidential debates on Diamond TV this evening, only Highvie Hamududu was more organized and you could tell that he knows what he is talking about, I hope he has a following though, but very level minded with the correct temperament for a leader, the UNIP aspirant body language very dead, a guy called Enock Tonga only has corruption on his lips, no message at all, a country is much more complex than corruption only

  5. But you are posting a comment so that same people you call ifipuba can like your comment though they have never seen you walk or heard yor voice? Kkkkkkk

  6. Thank you for representing us very well unlike the f00Iish upnd diaaporans who are embarrassing us there abroad by being leeches on foreign governments. Most of them don’t work there abroad or if they do, they are doing menial jobs like wiping old whlte mbuyas backsides.
