    • In your government, all of you were criminals. Your leader, Jonathan “Edgar Chagwa-Chakolwa Lungu” Mutawire, set his panga wielding thugs on fellow PF members, in order to secure the party nomination for president at that conference in 2015. You thugs terrorised innocent citizens in the bus stops and the markets, and murdered people wantonly and whimsically. That is why your party Secretary General, Mumbi Phiri, is locked up in jail Mongu. You are the last people who can talk about desperation, when you borrowed and looted the country into $30 billion worth of unpayable debt, to say nothing of selling the remainder to the Chinese and the Lebanese. Get out here, you worthless kaponya

  1. They didn’t murder him, they simply killed him. For those not in ZAMBIA at the moment let me tell you, thefts and break-ins are the order of the day. You sleep in the day time so that you can stay awake during the night to guard your property. There’s not a single policeman in sight whether night or day time. I have personally lost expensive items. What is worse is people are now poisoning our dogs.

    • Thanks Personally I can’t kill a human being. But I don’t have sympathy for people who like to exploit where they didn’t sew.
