    • I dont even know why LT has to tell us this! Professionals say News is about a man biting a dog not a dog biting a man. So its only news if HH doesnt return to Zambia. You cant be telling us that HH has now opened the gate at Community House…and he has entered the living room…now he has taken off his jacket

    • Marcopolo president, a drain on national resources, a nasty itchy rash on Zambian public. Shameless tinpot Satan

    • Why not stay and enjoy watching DRCongo game, than coming to depressed sorrowful Lusaka to watch depressed Israeli coach?

  1. The BBC reported him as the president of Congo, just goes to show that the whole thing is stage managed. 2H will be imposed on the Zambian people until the west find another one prepared to protect their interests the same way these stooges have been behaving. Africans need to stop being nice to these Muzungus otherwise they will finish us off.

    • Seven times did you people try to assassinate Mr Mazoka, and on the 8th time you succeeded. Now you are hallucinating as if HH is an illegitimate president. HH won in the face attempted rigging. He lost to rigging in 2015, and 2014. He lost to an unscrupulous liar who go the Lozi to vote for him by lying. You write as if HH is the enemy of Zambia. The enemy is you who steals and lies; the enemy of Zambia is you who kills people. HH will win or lose on the merit of his record in office. He will not win because he rigged. HH comes from a culture of honesty and hard work. If he does not win, he will leave his unpaid position as president, and return to his businesses. You are the ones who must stay in to power to continue stealing, and to hide your previou stealing.

  2. Wasting tax payers money when his country is ravaged with cholera. A caring president would be home dealing with cholera crisis, not this pathetic liar hh

  3. Returned. When did he go? How much the trip cost, who else went with him? Useless trip by the most useless presidio any country ever had. People are dying, this peoples’ chief servant is globetrotting.

  4. Not sure why he has returned to Zambia his west media crowned him the president being inaugurated. Hakainde has only continued to impress the western coloniser annd imperialists and not his employers (the electorate)back home. Any way he does not care because his heart is truly not for the electorate but his family and foreign financiers. The Zambian electorate are the biggest lossers.

  5. Re-election of President Tshisekedi is great for DRC and for business. Look forward to launching my products on the DRC market.
