  1. An African magazine registered in the UK to feed Africans to Europeans. They need to explain why he is the best African leader for Europeans because back in his country his ministers are announcing load-shedding, lack of medicines in hospitals, handing over poverty schemes to cooperating partners, arrests of political opponents, sale of government assets without parliamentary approval, Army audit by external auditors selected without security clearance. We would love to celebrate our president but he needs to prove to the Zambian people that his commitment is to them not his friends in Europe.

  2. Hahahaha I am not fully recovered but even I have found this very funny. An imperialist magazine giving its chola boy an accolade for doing as they tell him. We don’t celebrate such faeces here. Fuseke!

  4. Same stupid old story meant to hoodwink the nprmally foolish Africans. They praise you when you are doing nothing for your own employers (the electorate) and when you start doing things for your own people they vilify you because they are not gaining anything. When will the sleeping Africa work up? These are rubbish stories by stooges planted by the imperialists to confuse the iliterate Africans.

  5. They said they have stabilised the economy and now they are unlocking resources…

    Whilst the economy is crumbling… there is no cash flow… the currency is going from best to worst… we are giving away state assets interms of shares… reducing taxes on mining thieves… exporting power whilst load shedding home grown businesses… providing an environment of zero-education by creating a 100 pupils to 1 teacher ratio, whilst talking about rewriting the school curriculum.

    Are we on the same page??

  6. The truth is, he’s doing better than the pf. Yes he has failed in some sectors but, yeah, we’re better than we were in pf.
    We have freedom of expression, gathering and speech. No caderism, free education, reintroduction of student meal allowances, napsa..

    So for me, he’s still the only one I can give my vote so far so good ?
