  1. This is unZambian, where is this all coming from? why are we allowing these dangerous creatures to roam the streets? God help us.

  2. Yes it is un Zambian but we have a president and government who have no interest in the truth, or in honesty. Edgar China Lungu has been lying for six years, has intimidated all institutions to support him (or loose your job) and now Zambians are fed up and want him OUT! And Lungu has already said he won’t concede, so all that’s left is violence!

  3. Well this is very sad but we have always been warning PF and UPND to desist from such violent activities that they are both reaping from. Under the PF leadership, we have seen a massive increase in such cases which they failed to quench. The Panga Family has been blessing these activities and now look were it has led to. It would not be surprising if some of these criminals are those who were recently releaed by the head of state. These big guys in PF thought they were very protected but now the cadres are pouncing on them too. What a pity!

  4. What is painful is to be forced to concede. Lungu China Edgwa will concede otherwise he will just ask for trouble on himself. People dont want Lungu anymore we have suffered enough as civil servants. Let him answer treason charges.

  5. Zambians we are one let us be United and be in one Accord .we shouldn’t fight one another we are brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus let us be God fearing people because Heavenly father doesn’t allow such notion . Elections comes and goes .please avanges are for God our Father.and I salute our security wing for protection given to all .may our God bless us all Amen
