  1. Desperate upnd cadres attempting to do magic in the hope that it will salvage their dwindling support and failures. Disgusting party

  2. LOL, why do we abuse our police? Two adults decide to have sex in a cemetary, one becomes mad and the police rush in to arrest the other and charge for conduct likely to ‘bleach’ the peace?
    Superstition will kill us in Zambia.

    • Just wondering. I reported a break in last year and up to now no policeman has visited the scene of crime.

    • Imwe baDeja Vu, go to the police station. Tell those sleepy corrupt officers that you suspect one of the burglars was Edgar Lungu’s sister’s brother’s cousin. And you will see how active they will become!

  3. I hope Police do a good job, look at how Police awashed social media of pictures of a guy who died in some lodge in Lusaka recently, pictures which were only with Police themselves. When the Family approached Chilanga Police over the same, we hear the Police there were quick to point to their command where they send pictures. Who does that surely
