  2. The problem with our system is that Parliament is simply a rubber stamp, when have they opposed to anyone…look at the SA style system where a commitee publicily interviews candidates.

    • Contributing to debate on the ratifications, This boy Stephen Kampyongo expressed reservations on the appointments of Mr Gilbert Phiri,Mr Chad Muleza and Dr Henry Mbushi who they said were known UPND members….but still they are ratified, we need to reform.. This is what led to State capture under the PF of Lazy Lungu and Sata.

  3. How’s Gilbert Phiri going to discharge his duties with impartiality when clearly he is a staunch UPND praise singer
