  3. Katwe is the new governor of Katanga! Where is that Zambian Jewish Congolese man, Katebe Katoto’s brother? Has he been exiled?

  4. DRC delegation which was led by Katanga Province Governor JACQUES KYABULA KATWE while Hon Milupi was leading the Zambian delegation. ITS A VERY UNFAIR DELEGATION JUST LOOK AT THE NAMES JACQUES KYABULA KATWE its like a name for a KID GIRL WHILE MILUPI A STRONG MALE DISCIPLINARIAN BEATING HEAVY SLAPS , HOW DO U BALANCE THE TALKS LIKE THIS AS THE KID IS INTIMIDATED NA MALUPI

  5. @: Kaizer Sosala: didn’t your pf only employ Bembas and few Easterners? So let Milupi employ even his dog. No problem , we are in control now and answerable to nobody. Just like your Lusambo was, Chitalu, Chanda, Kampyongo, Luo, Mulenga , kabanshi, all from one region and channeled all resources to one region and you Kaizer never talked.

  6. UPND must now take dev with priority to Southern, Western , Northwest etc all provinces previous sidelined, as a priority. In that order. Bembas received everything and surprisingly they never even did anything with 80% our tax payers money going to them. Watch how Southern will become a powerhouse from just CDF. Wealthy is born with you, u cannot force it. If it’s not in you it’s not in you.
