    • You are even failing to type a simple comment ba engineer vapa lusakatimes. Fuseke.
      By the way, I thought you would be on your way to attend the diaspora convention in livingstone. Oh I forgot, you are too broke plus you probably haven’t sorted out your legal right to stay there abroad, so you cannot risk exiting the country. Fuseke

    • Saulosi – I have read the whole article I havent seen the word “landmark” you see …I only see the word “historic” very big difference …nothing special about Italy if were not for the EU umberalla it would be in deep trouble. Most Italy youth even tell me that its tough in their country that’s why they are in other countries especially UK and Ireland.

  4. They are still living in the days when HH was in opposition and they thot they wud still continue attacking HH left right and center. But yaba, the man is smarter than the thieves, he is no where to be found and seen by cadres. As he is only available to legitimate real Gov officials and individuals. He has kept his presidency super professional. Such that PF and SP and EEF mediocres cant even ve a glance of him on the streets. He has outsmarted them by very far. To make matters worse, the man doesnt even respond back to them-just like another known Gay journalist pretending to be a politician is trying so hard to attack & maybe get the mans attention but all has so far been always in vain. No single response whatsoever from the Presidency.Hahahahhahahahahhahahahhh!1

  5. I hope it’s not deals to have migrants shipped to Zambia from Italian shores. Otherwise Italians built the Karba Dam when others failed. Italians have African genes. Ni ma colored, they are our long lost relatives.

  6. people forget that Italy and Israel were at the forefront of helping Zambia go-steady after independence – QZ, ZAF,INDENI later LMA…muzibelenga imwe, jabaa!!!

  9. Can we concentrate on how we can benefit from such visit rather than being political. Our quest now is to export more into EU and having a number of high level personalities lobbying for us is great. We need to export Tomatoes, Beef, Flowers, Beans, Avocados, and many things we produce. We need to create jobs and wealth for our people. These links are always important. STOP WASTING TIME ON ISOLATED WORDS LIKE LANDMARK. Yes its landmark because its the first time. That’s what it simply means but this should not be the subject of our discussion.

  10. just hearing that a Muzungu President is coming to Zambia am sure house negroeees Spaka and Tarino Lemon both had very good orgasm…they messed up their underwear

  11. Third world mentality when a white man comes to visit they think that he is bringing stacks and stacks of money. First world travel for their own interest and third world minds starts dancing that they will get something. To show how shallow we are we even start comparing who visited who. Very sadd indeed.
