    • Alice Lenshina was a cult leader.
      Her followers were made to drink urine and kill perceived agents of the state in the name of religion.
      We know that part of Zambian history very well

  1. “Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied ,men of power are feared ,but only men of character are trusted”
    I’ll leave it to my fellow LT bloggers to decide which one KK was.

  2. LT and all Zambia media organisations worthy their names, could you please stop with these headlines of “Pres!dent this, Pres!dent that”. No wonder these president’s think they are small g0ds.
    Go into society and look for inspiring and uplifting stories of everyday folks who are making meaningful changes… academics, nurses, doctors, volunteers, business people, civil society in NGOs, climate activists, women activists, farmers, influencers, prechaers, sports people, the list goes on. We want to hear of these Zambian, not just HH 24/7. Come on people!

  3. The president of zambia do his work as a president of the nation not part of nation.How ever it’s his work to touch all corners of the country.we love that Mr president keep it up for uniting us.
