    • LT What are you saying in that first paragraph? Please get an Editor. Even the next sentence is crazy. The head of state…Isnt the Mozambican also a head of state?

  1. Lets be civil and develop Zambia….i don’t care how the President looks as long as he brings development to Zambia…meaning electricity 24/7….running water….employment for the youths…clean neighborhood with affordable housing…affordable Healthcare…good road network ( with clear markings and signage)…how can you see at night where your lane ends if its not marked…no wonder we have alot of head on collisions….

    • Can you imagine………they can’t fix even simple traffic markings on the roads? I’m so scared of driving each time I visit the country. Something does not add up with Zambian politicians.

  2. Please chat with the President of Mozambique over power, here in Mtendere and PHI we last had ZESCO power yesterday thursday at 22 hrs and today is Friday and going to 18hrs, meaning 18 to 20hrs of no ZESCO power.

  3. Its about time Africa gets rid of corrupt leaders and all old stone age leaders who think that the only way to develop is to go and beg colonial masters for bread crumps….African leaders who think that posing and taking pictures with King Charles or President of the USA is a very big achievement..we now young and revolutionary leaders….but the problem is once you vote in a youthful leaders and they test “honey” and how sweet power is…then they become dictators and they want to stay in power forever….Chiluba is a very good example

  4. Makonde president conferring with a Tonga president ,its just beautiful. But number one is we need good hospitals, roads , 1st class schools,constant power etc regardless of whether its a Tumbuka or Lozi presidency.

  5. ………

    Wait first……….We are busy with african bussiness inter neighbourliness………

    Forwadee 2031…….
