Mr. Mtayachalo added that he will also tackle the issue of water supply, electrification, taking health and education services closers to people and economic empowerment programmes for young people and women, among others, who he said were the most vulnerable groups in society.


  1. When I said that the upnd cadres are violent animals, people said KZ is talking lies. Those that thought pf cadres were violent will now know what real violence is. As for me I have my licensed fire arm so if any upnd animal thug approaches me violently, I will protect myself in self defence

  2. One day in opposition and they are already crying, how the mighty have fallen….after stealing everything in sight.
    Please leave these empty tins!!

  3. Normally I wouldn’t condone violence, but these cowards were silent when PF cadres were terrorizing people – even police. I give zero f*#ks!

  4. That thief kaizar zulu thinks a fire arm arm can save him…he is part of the violent moon instigators whose pf thugs terrorized citizens for 7 yrs.

    He now cries foul less than a week? How many bullets did your firearm hold you criminal?

    You,particularly you chi kaizar zulu already have blood on your hands.. we will catch you..

  5. Faka pressure.

    Let us give these PF thugs a taste of their own medicine for another week (only).

    After that, we can send all cadres (PF and UPND) to national service for 12 months. On completion, we can deploy these boys on farms.

  6. Ba Kaizar Zulu, when will this end. Calling others as animals is not a way to start healing. I bet you are Christian right

  7. Mr. Mutaya whatever! Opposition cadres were brutalizer for 23 years and you want to complain just for a day. Stop being a cry baby man!

  8. Please understand the simple logic, we want peace. The loss of life is not good, it is not that pf cannot defend itself. We can hence our request is that the winner must behave. Remember, chama north has majority in pf so should we manhandle upnd???

  9. Opposition members were living like in hell during the once Mighty outing PF and what is happening across the country is just getting rind of the bottled up anger and frustrations but it will still cool down. This should never be allowed to happen in future. Zambians should live in peace as brothers and sisters enjoying the little they have.

  10. Myatachalo were you not FDD? Where is your former FDD president nawakwi ? We are looking for her. Nothing serious, We just want to buy sausages.

  11. I totally agree, these pathetic Foools thugs had beaten and taken money from people for yrs and they are crying for one day, cry babies just like meno meno…. He cried when he lost and tried everything all in vein

  12. Stop harrassing PF members? I’m only STARTING! They have harrassed the Zambian population for over six years, so we have all the right to some harrassing back. Especially total id!ots like that UK based troll and imposter KZ – I will harrass him to my hearts content until he serves his time in Lusaka Central Prison – and then I will harrass him there!
