    • Better be a puppet than continuing the slave trading tradition and history of your ancestors by selling Zambians into US $33 billion of debt slavery. Since some *****s here like to lashout, I would like to ask them to suggest solutions to the US $33 billion borrowed and looted by their relatives. If you cannot, then you should shut up

    • Classic! Well put @Ayatollah. Wasn’t this n@mpty just rebuking ‘airplane-loving PSs’ recently? So what will be productive about this trip? Just stay at home and at least be seen to be trying to solve the myriad of problems the country is facing.

  1. I don’t understand this, Zimbabwe elections were fraudulent and chose to abstain. DRC elections were fraudulent yet he is attending .

    • This is poor neighborhood on part of our president. You never know where and how Zimbabwe can hit us… they may look like helpless but…?

    • Actually Edna Lungu solved Zimbabwe. The Kazungula Bridge check mated them. They know this and they moved heaven and earth to stop it. They went to the UN to get it to try to declare that Zambia only has border with them; it has no border with Botswana. Zambia and Botswana went back to the Korean bridge builder and had the bridge curve Westward over Namibia. The at inaugaration, the Zimbabweans appeared, claiming to want to be a part of the project. The reason is that 70% of their traffic taxes come from the Beit Bridge-Chirundu road. When they failed to stop the Kazungula Bridge, the useless *****s spent US $600 million to upgrade the that road, to try and induce Zambia and RDC to use it. We have the advantage

    • The opposition, all of them, intend to protest and even Kabila is not attending. But HH with his love of travel, picture ops wastage of tax payers money is travelling. Why can’t he stay at home and pretend to be working when he is not?

    • No mathafaka. Zimbabwe is spoiled. Kaunda grovelled to try and ease a grudge they had against Zambia for supporting Joshua Nkomo. They spent the first 20 years of their independence making Zambia pay for it at every opportunity. You do not live in Southern Province, so you do not know how abusive they were to Zambians visiting their country. You are uneducated so you do know about how they built an unreliable coal fired electricity generating station in 1986. On the day they commissioned it, they called Zambia and told us they did not want their power, without notice. When Zambia got the Europeans to sell power to Botswana, they went behind the back of Zambia to make sure the power lines passed through Zimbabwe. They are used to eating free from Zambia.

  2. Shouldn’t our president just cancel the trip and address the cholera out break and find the solution to the problems!! Because ppl are dying! Some of these Ppl are our families and friends We should learn from COVID the number of ppl dying is increasing it’s a tragic as it is now!! A concern Zambian citizen !!! Bless
