  7. I dont see Kambwili being given a ministerial position because of His utterances during against Lungu & Wina during campaigns.
    But The appointments are fake coz Lungu stole His friend’s victory.

  15. When evil men rule see what happens. God allows evil to cover His children but just for a season. Zambians what we are passing through now is out of God’s wish so that both HH and his followers, Edgar and his panga, gun trotting insulting elements can learn something.

  16. Although I am PF,I am not happy with these appointments. If they are saying that CK and GL will be given strategic ministerial positions, why not reveal them as early as possible. Satellite ministries are better named in the early stages of a good government to be. We won’t take rubbish of teasing us like those will be mentioned later because they are of potent political influence; rubbish! Name critical men in the early stages of officiating.
