    • Saulosi, try to think before you contribute nonsense . Are you aware that, HH is the president of Zambia and Zambia is a member of the commonwealth? Hence, our president sending condolences on behalf of our nation. Saulosi, you should learn to respect bereavements and situations of important nature. Not only is Britain in mourning alone, but other countries, including the commonwealth and 7 other countries were the Queen was head of state including Canada, Australia, New Zealand and and Gibraltar. The Queen was a very nice and important person who modernised Britain which has embraced all people from different ethnic background. Just imagine even Vladimir Putin of Russia who has been in bad books with the UK but has sent his condolences to the British Monarch on behalf of Russia…

  2. Whilst death is a sad thing, I want to distance myself from the statement ‘on behalf of the people of Zambia’. Perhaps that should have read ‘on behalf of the people of Zambia with the exception of Chiza Chirwa’.
    What did the Royal family do for us Zambians really? Grab the land with guns, enslave us, force their culture and political systems on us, and kept preventing us from gaining our freedom, supported apartheid in SA and recently showed their contempt of people like us by refusing to acknowledge a black woman as part of the Royal family.
    Why are we still in the commonwealth anyways?

    • Please Meghan was her own problem. If they didnt want to accept her because of her racethey would have never allowed Prins Harry to marry her and create children of colour, who still to this day could one day be king or queen. They welcomed her with open arms. I remember thinking before all the drama, wow, they are doing so much more for her than they did for Kate and her family. Meghan is a problematic woman. Thats all. She wanted titles for her kids, which wasnt their birth right loll. If it was, she could have sued for the titles, because these things are determined by law smh.
