    • The President is serious with uniting the nation. Three weeks ago he was in Kawambwa with Mwata Kazembe. This weekend with Chitimukulu (even though he’s a trait0r). This is leadership in action. Not ilya iyabambi ngikwite…May that useless kind of leadership be forever consigned to the pits of history.

  2. Mr president continue with your developmental agenda but we need to earnest appeal to your team to implement the much talked about payment of napsa and znpf payment to all the beneficiaries regardless of age

  4. Heading north from south. Is Chief Chitimukulu going to appoint sectional headmen on the event of Ukusefya pa Ng’wena, or that such appointments are only a preserve of the Lwiindi Ceremony?

  5. Also when will the presidential jet be sold? We were promised it would be sold and the money given to free education

    • It’s a process bwana. That Jet is under ZAF and it cannot just be sold like that. At least the law is being followed, not like before where someone can just say I need an expensive jet, and it’s bought for him.
