      That’s what he telling this dull Justice Minister who has proved to be a bootlicker and stand on his own two legs but bending the law to please his boss.

  2. The main problem I have with the USA projecting their influence is …………

    their own back yard……..some of the Latino countries and Haiti are a mess……

    Right in their back yard, there is some of the highest murder rates and drug addictions with high employment and poverty…………..

    Sort out your back yard first , as an example of what good influence USA power can project………..

  4. America, and the rest of the Western world, could care less whether Zambia develops or not, as their priority is to look after their own interests. Don’t be fooled. Wake up.

  5. Cautiously, he is saying there is no rule of law in the New dawn Government. Sad, in this edge we are unable to apply a rule of law. Today, the ruling party is using a rule of man to grab two seats in parliament. Later, with the comfortable number of seats, they will use rule of law to remove ECL immunity. There are many other examples.

  6. The Ambassador has borrowed Nakachinda’s microscope and has seen everything the NEW Dark government is doing

  7. ANY MATURED ADULT SHOULD BE ABLE TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES. I THINK IT WAS NOT MEANT FOR CLOSED UP MINDS, BLIND SUPPORTERS TO UNDERSTAND. DE JAVU YOU ARE ON POINT.

    • After the disaster of Donald Trump the US can’t preach to anyone about democracy or rights. If democracy can take a fool into power and the chap fools such a big following then it’s the wrong philosophy. The Chinese must have been patting themselves on the backs for having soberer leaders. Sh1thole countries never had a single president suggest that bleach could cure covid
