  1. Why Has the PF CORRUPT ENTERPRISE OF A GOVERNMENT Shut down the Internet & Social at the most Critical time for Citizens to Communicate.
    This is TOTALLY UNDEMOCRATIC and clearly demonstrates the fact they are up to no good.
    They’re trying Impede the Democratic will of the people of Zambia.

  2. And vigilant the people are. I have never been this proud to be Zambian.
    I am very happy that there is a record turnout at the polling stations across the nation. We desperately need change. If the incoming government underperforms we shall happily vote them out too and any other government that underperforms in future.

    Leaders are servants of the people and NOT masters of the people.

  3. Lusaka Times itself has written to comfirm the shutting of internet.Yes in the morning it was running, by afternoon it was shut down up to now Am using VPN.
    It’s wrong to shut flow of information besides internet is used for business, location etc.
