  1. Remember at some point HH was refused entry into chipata by some hateful scared pf members. Today he is president

  2. What is needed is these hospitals is well known. These hospitals need medical supplies and equipment not touring them and taking selfies. Times for campaigning are over for UPND. This is the time to deliver on the many lies that the Zambian people were told by iChilema. Meanwhile the price of mealie meal is at k300, fertilizer at k1200 not to mention fuel and electricity. With zero tangible infrastructure to show for in two years.

    • The only achievement they have made is to buy white gloves for the president so that he doesnt get germs from handshaking citizens of his constituency.

    • Sorry Zambians , HH can’t go beyond this performance you can see around he has reached his fullest capacity, asking for more from this president is not fair for him , the only biggest problem he made for himself is to overate himself thinking that he was in the level of the late KK , and the late Michael Sata now you can see for yourselves the man you highly rated .
      See how he is fumbling there are no more ideas in that spongy brain , watch him when he goes southern province traditional ceremonies how he dances.

  3. Mr CDF omitted to visit 2 most important areas, the dispensary and the mortuary. He should have taken time to see for himself that there’s no medicine in the dispensary and he should have seen for himself how many cadavers were brought in dead and how many died in wards because of a lack of medicine. He lost the opportunity to see for himself how much damage has been caused to health service delivery since his government embarked on a fruitless witch-hunt to fix their predecessors

  4. OMG KK comes to the fore again
    A person who took this country from riches to zero held as an example Really ??
    Even Chiluba was better than him
