  1. I cannot believe this is happening between a president and a minister. I think this is a chief and his induna. This is Lungu’s plan to appoint people who always agree with him and clealy has no respect for human beings.This is recipe for disaster and Zambia is not going anywhere with this useless leadership.

    The UK ,for example, is developed not because it better than us but has strong oppositions not only in parliament but also in the cabinet.Minsters are able to challenge the prime minster and still remain loyal.

    Somebody had said that Obama worked with people who knew what he did not know.

    • This is the way to express one’s respect to an elder.There are some tribes where subjects prostrate on the ground or kneel AND crap for their traditional leader called a Chief.Is there anything wrong with this,ABSOLUTELY NONE!!!

  2. even if they say ukupoka ichisenda kunkoko kunakilila this was too much it is just more like a senior police officer talking to a junior on phone and the junior at the far end is busy saluting and saying yes sir .

  3. Under the Illegitimate Lungu govt u will see more of this. Lungu imagines himself as Kamuzu Banda of Malawi and thats why Sangomas are part of Lungu’s life. Unless Lungu is stopped Zambia will be transformed into a One Man Dictatorship.Nkwazi Edgar Lungu is already focused to single handedly Rule Zambia beyond 2021. The Petition must be heard without fail otherwise Lungu’s Dictatorship will take root. The writing is on the Wall!

  4. Courtesy and respect demands that Lungu should have stood up to talk to his Minister. Or Lungu should have asked for an addtional chair for whoever was meeting him to sit so that they could talk at equal level.
    It is a Zambian value that nobody should make another person grovel and prostate like this so-called Minister.

  5. How can that be happening in the 21st century surely? This is why Zambian Presidents think they are Gods. Why would a grown man, elected as MP agree to be treated like that!!!!

  6. The culture of knelling is normal part of a Zambian, we cannot close our eyes to believe this is the way it should be. Kanshi cabs Shania mwebantu mulefwaya atankamane?

    • Its not normal the best should have been the President telling poor Katambo to stand up. This is the pure dictatorship where people start worshipping the President.

  7. Ah no the President should’nt have allowed this man to kneel down. The worst place where such could happen is in the Army but even there it does not happen. An officer cld be punished for kneeling down before his superior.

    Bwana Edar the Presidency is a fleeting job; it comes and go. Dont allow power to crowd yo head to this extent where it switches off your basic mental faculties. This is embarrassing to you Mr President.

  8. Emperor Lungu. We have had seven presidents and none of them allowed such a thing to happen. Only Lungu who went to Jesus’ tomb in Israel.

  9. @Phir,you are spot on.The president should have told the Minister to “pull a chair”. Power corrupts!!

  10. Lungu is the King of Tribes. Respect is earned not demanded. The minister looks miserable.

  15. Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the
    web the simplest factor to take into account of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as
    people think about issues that they plainly don’t recognise about.

    out the entire thing with no need side effect , people can take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

  17. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
