  1. Mr President , have you forgotten about the “Elbow shake”? Hand shake is still spreading covid. Why did you forget your white gloves . Your friend Biden is down with Covid again. He had just come from the middle east which not too far from Tanzania.
    Take care Sir…… We need you. Covid is real.

  3. Dear Mr President, negotiate with President Sululu to open ZRA customs and RTSA offices at Dar es Salaam port so that all motor vehicles are taxed and registered before they enter Zambia. If need be, Zambia should like Congo, join the East African Community.

  4. Zambia needs TAZARA more the Tanzania I dont know why we bother them with it just go all in …Zambia should also be pulling fiberoptic cables from TZ to reduce cost of broadband and business in country.
