  1. Are you saying The Zambia Revenue Authority ceases to legally exist?

    What department does the Zambia Revenue Authority fall under?

    I can’t imagine one senator dissolving the Department of treasury.

    IMF did you know this is going to happen?

  2. I almost forgot about the hundreds, if not thousands, of MMD campaign bicycles that were found at his farm after RB lost power until I saw a picture of this from the archives. Now I understand his comments about the PF that they shared road construction projects like they were sharing bottles of castle or mosi.

  4. @ Daniel Chisebwe. You do not understand the difference between Governing boards and Management ? What type of work are you doing in the diaspora – hearding monkeys ? This is normal and these Boards have a life span. And an ***** is already calling the move tribal as if the board members are already announced – who is the new Commissioner General at Z R A ? . A clique of thieves are so scared of vengeance due to their past misdeeds.

  9. I took note of the president inaugural speech and his sentiments that we should record in our diaries from day one that he is going to appoint people not based on tribe but based on number one must be a Zambian citizen and must be competent.i must state these firings most people appointed are those aligned to UPND so that’s not what he preached about uniting the country
