  1. Slowly but surely, using government funds during an election. Coincidence or PF in repeat? I leave that for the reader to decide.

  2. It shows what kind of people that Zambians are. Those in leadership positions will use all means and excuse to dangle carrots to the electorates who will in turn use every excuse to receive them and sell their vote and regret for the rest of the time. We just move in circles. We expect most of those serving today to spend their time at DEC, ACC, ZP & Courts when Bally leaves office. They have bought motorcycles at K130,000 each when the price on the market is K35,000. They started with fertilizer. There will be more scandals as they begin to procure more goods and services. The bells that are tolling on the PF will toll on the UPND
