  1. Let the numbers go up so that we get into lockdown. Vasco Dagama wanted His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu to get this beloved country into lockdown. Let Dagama do it.

  2. Kaizar Zulu and Deja Vu, have you noticed how quiet the new dark government supporters are on Covid-19. They have failed. The next you hear them, they will be blaming PF.

  3. Henry very true my brother. What is even more annoying is that it is probably hh who brought omicron to Africa with his constant irrelevant travelling

  4. UPND supporters are very much alive and not blogging too much because they are action oriented. Everything concerning Covid-19 is left to the experts to deal as they are positioned to deal with matter. We don’t want to seen as masters of all yet know nothing.
