  1. I have never seen pictures of our President shaking hands with president Emmerson Munangagwa since he was re- elected as Zimbabwe President.

  2. “President Hakainde Hichilema Attended Burial of Late Namibian President” Is that news? He attends everything as long as it is out of the country

    • He is mass Ng wealth through unnecessary travels. A day time robber. Socialist government shall lift his immunity and fast track his shenanigans privatization, dipping in mine deals and travels. Make an example of him

  3. If you are Zambian president and you have quarreled with your Zimbabwean counterpart in the recent past, don’t get near him or greet when you meet outside of your two countries! Bad luck could soon follow you …

    • @Nsimbi….Mwanawasa got knocked out soon after shaking hands with Mugabe at the AU summit in Cairo. Lest we forget Mnangagwa was one of the first terrorist to be trained in covet operations in China or the Soviet Union back in 1965

  4. How is this news seriously….HH is always moving up and down…..Politicians are buried in style….buried with money and how much tax payers money was spent….but when it comes buying medicine for the poor people in Hospitals they say the government doesn’t have money..POLITICIANS JUST THINK ABOUT THEMSELVES

  5. The monthly maintenance cost for the resting place for Kamuzu Banda of Malawi is enough to build 5 rural health centers in Muzuzu…..the monthly maintenance cost for the resting places for Chiluba…Kaunda and Lupiya Banda is enough to build 15 rural health centers

  6. I am just surprised that the opposition presidents never sent messages of condolences the way hh used to when he was in opposition even sending condolences before the ‘official’ statement from plot 1
