  1. No sacred cows indeed. But we want actual valid convictions – not punitive arrests on trumped up “insults” charges!

  2. The most important component of the corruption fight that is you as the incumbent must ensure that your Ministers and senior officers behave. Some tax holidays and concessions might not be innocent. Acquaint yourself with the Varun K15BN tax holiday that Kingsley Chanda exposed and collected. The moment you appointed Situmbeko we knew that Kingsley’s days at ZRA were numbered. It’ll be futile to pursue former leaders when you own are doing the same. And think that it’ll be easy. Zambia is in the hands of the Mafia, a very dangerous Mafia. LPM’s speech on FTJ’s immunity was stolen from his office at State House. That’s not a joke

  6. Fighting corruption is not an easy task Sir – ku koosa…! By now you may have seen how they want to appeal to tribal support. They stole from the same people they want to claim are being segregated on tribal lines. The weak minds can actually believe them.

    How can one balance tribes on crime ? The people who were in power are well known and nobody amongst these same thieves corrected the regime that time to balance tribes in the public offices- why ? They were comfortable with the state of affairs and would have loved it to continue.
    Your Excellence we wish you God’s guidance and protection as you preside on the affairs of this Great Nation and let no thief stand your way – AMEN and AMEN.

  8. @ 6 Exactly my question. I think we as a country are ill trained to handle corruption cases. The caliber of professionals at ACC and DEC leaves much to be desired. I really don’t like how alleged cases are being publicized. Isn’t that tipping?

  9. Starting from yourself….explain how you acquired wealth…..and look at his face and body Language when he is with bazungu….you never see him smile when he is with fellow black people…pure uncle Tom….and don’t forget Musokotwane and 48 houses

  12. When will recovery of assets and prosecution of thieves start ? In year 2031?

    Where I am standing, I can only hear barking, no biting.

    Remember you only have 4.75 years before next election. Zambians will fire you if you do not start acting.

    Where are the fast track courts you promised ??

  13. There is tendency for Politician – thieves to always call for tribal sympathy. Somehow it works because of the sensitivity associated with it in a multi -tribal country like ours. I remember of a former Minister who issued some hate speech against his wife’s tribe just to get his tribal support.
    SHAME…!
