  1. Frank Tayali has really worked hard and being arrested for that seat…these are smart intelligent MPs we should be sending into Parliament not the dullards that have been going there in the past 10 years like Freedom “smiling fooool” Sikazwe. Bowman Lusambo will surely feel exposed in the presence of such smart men.

  2. As a non Partisan….my only word for HH is NO DEFECTIONS PLEASE…..anyone is free to Join UPND 10 years from August 12th 2021…..and another 10 years before they can be given any position….so Total 20 years waiting period and everyone should have a clean record,,,background checks will be done…it will take another 10 years to do backrground checks so make it 30 years waiting period…..Annonymous

  3. CONGRATULATIONS HON. TAYALI FRANK. REMEMBER HOW AN AK47 RIFLE WAS AIMED AT YOU BY AN UNRULY CADRE POLICE IN LUSAKA? AS YOU GO TO PARLIAMENT ENSURE THAT THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN TO ANY INNOCENT PERSON IN ZAMBIA.. THAT WAS ONE OF THE SCARIEST MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF ZAMBIA. MAY THE PF NEO-COLONIAL MASTERS ROAST IN ETERNAL TURMOIL.

  4. Congratulations Tayali..is this the gentleman who stood down that rifle brandish thug of a policeman a few months ago. Certainly LT is now trying to have a balanced editorial stand.

    The thug KZ is nowhere to be seen, must he busy gazing in his crystal ball for some magic!

  5. Congrats man you deserve it. Ba LT continue moderating us kaili. Whats going on kanshi. And where is that KZ i.diot we want to hear from him as well. Kikikiki ati still looking into the crystal ball. And what do you see – arresting of your boss for 3rd term treason. Mulandu siuola that treason case of 3rd term is coming. He forced himself to be voted by some sleeping Zambians. Ati Copperbelt ni ku bedroom – kwisa.
    Disaster.

  6. UPND, please don’t forget to invite Musi Maimane to the inauguration of HH, the way the man was shoved back in the plane when he came to try and visit incarcerated HH was extremely brutal, please make a public apology at the inauguration.
