  1. His excellency Mr. President of the Republica of my country, keep up with your great for the people of Zambia. I repeat, for the good normal people of Zambia.

  2. The fruitful trip you made on behalf of the Zambian people though we will only see the juice is a well-deserved utilization of the of taxpayer’s cash. Zambia is on the right track, you’re a natural leader Zambia needed. Thank you.

  3. Welcome back your Excellence Mr President. While you were away your people were sharing fertilizer in medas and the Parliamentary Committee on Health found that there’s truly an acute shortage of drugs in health facilities across the country. But as usual your praise singers shot down the report in Parliament. The reality still remains that there’s a shortage of drugs. So in whose interest was that report shot down? Praise singers are enemies of progress, they’ll also shun you when tables change

  4. Well done Mr president HH for the fruitful engagement s at the US, Africa summit clinching 150us isn’t a joke.

  5. Begger mentality..when will Africa become dependent on its own natural resources…we can’t even deal with simple electricity
