  1. Situmbeko is expected to present his budget by 30 September against the background of many unfunded projects and unpaid contractors. Worst of all the CDF mystery, funds that aren’t available. We’ll go into another budget cycle with most of the CDF money unutilized. I hope that he has realized what negative impact this has. Can you relax the conditions so that these funds are unlocked? It’s not enough to disburse funds that can’t be utilized. A year is gone with nothing to write home about. You can do better

  2. He has never held a parliamentary seat this hh. It is an insult to that great building of law makers.

    I am mourning a great man today.RIP edem djokoto. As a man who came from humble education background I never know how to read or write and always admired edems prowess with words. He motivated me to become a better speaker and writer. Years later I was to become an advisor to the president of the Republic. Go well. Aluta continue

  3. The next sitting of parliament must put up strong punishment for plunderers so that we stop the free fall plunder that we saw in the PF regime, the truth is that plunder was massive and the marjority of it will never be known or uncovered. The ubomba mwibala alya mwibala regime was more advanced than all previous government plunder put together, ACC,DEC, Zambia Police will never un earth the massive plunder, they will only scratch the tip of the ice berg.
