  10. Check Bowman Lusambo displaying a one-man protest post for U K minister for Africa Vicky Ford to see. Thought former president Edgar Lungu does not need the West. Protesting to Chinese would be more meaningful. Alas!, the British know Lusambo in person as to type of person probably PNG to UK. Ignorant and hypocrisy – worse blinded by inferiority complex

  11. All those praising the British here are really shallow. You went to school hoping to get an education but ended up brainwashed. Our president didnt get a well rounded education at UNZA.
    Please Do some research and stop seeing things from your colonial master’s point of view: that is what brainwashing does to most muzungu wanga Africans. They admire their colonial master toe to hair while hating everything about themselves. Read Marcus Garvey. When a person thanks the British for consistently supporting Zambia and forgets their consistently draining Zambian resources for 400 years then you can see he doesnt have the guts to stand up to his colonial master. Kagame stood up against France and Rwanda is recovering while you waste time making noise about the British leaving you with an…

  12. Yes When a person thanks the British for consistently supporting Zambia and forgets their consistently draining Zambian resources for 400 years then you can see he doesnt have the guts to stand up to his colonial master. He went to school to learn how to count but not what he is counting.
    Kagame stood up against France and Rwanda is recovering while you waste time making noise about the British leaving you with an economy. They didnt. They left you with an economy dependent on them like South Africa has now. The economy is for whites, parliament is for blacks

  15. convince him you say in your attempt to sanitise Europe’s invasion of Africa.. Which
    coloniser convinced any native? The coloniser who always sang about human rights,arrogantly raided other people’s property after killing them plundered everything they owned. The human rights he preached about were only his. No sane black man can sympathise with the coloniser unless one without hindsight or foresight

  16. The down votes don’t lie. People have lost confidence in upnd. Continue lying to yourself that I am in uk..that is whole point of vpn. To avoid any legal repercussions and being hacked by f00lish upnd. I am here in Lusaka. I warned you that I would not sleep until upnd are out
