  2. Garry start behaving like the late mwankoles. Why take a pastor to a business meeting with his staff?
    Why wear white hospital overcoats just to visit soweto market walking majestically?
    Those new white overcoats can be used at Soweto clinic.
    Garry you are embarrassing the elite cabinet.

  5. Madam Speaker! Madam Speaker! Madam Speaker! Madam Speaker!

    Talk is cheap. That talk was extremely empty on promises.
    None of the pronouncements tackled promises made. It sounded a campaign
    I put it to you that all youths were swindled.
    Next, the budget. Zeris no free education. Ni beans.

  6. Anyone is capable of reading that decorated speech but not everyone is courageous enough to act upon it.
    Who knows maybe thses guys don’t even understand what they read out to the people after all.
    No difference. Just a matter of singing the sequence.
    I wish for a day a president will be so clear with their pronouncements. Eg. This is A we shall use this and that for us to arrive at B.

    ALL CRAP!

  7. Give him some time. At least better than Mr Lungu. This man can fire ba kabolala and have them imprisoned. Ba Lungu awe he was not seeing suspected criminals, every one was ok.

  8. I dont even need to watch HEHH maiden journey to parliament to know he is the right man for the job……….

    We have invested a lot of confidence and reputations in the ability of HEHH to turn zambias fotrunes around………

    If HEHH carries the same determination and brilliance he has shown in his private life to statehouse , I see the whole nation being disappointed with the 2 term rule………

  9. Saulosi,

    Please do not share your ignorance on a public platform. Surgical gloves are made of latex/neoprene and not cotton you have no shame in calling USA as your home, others built that economy that you are enjoying, while the rest of Zambians in Zambia are doing their best to turn around the economy. USA is more than 270 years of democracy! and Zambia, less than 40 years! There are a lot of Zambians in Diaspora who have contributed and contribute to making Zambia a model country. Criticize please do by all means, but let it be constructive .

  10. UPND’S Successful accomplishment of its set goals is a good thing for the Zambian people and everyone here wishing HH to fail is a wicked person. You had your chance to do good for Zambia and your wickedness got in your way.

  11. Who ever is not happy with Our president.Shame on you.Only God owns the universe and holds the future.Every man is his creation and he knows our destiny and what he has put in us.Its time for HH to reign.Learn something from his life and improve your own life and character.We are just visitors on earth and one day his reign will be over.Stay focused God is real and his coming back again to judge the world whether we like it or not.
