    • The happy are more than the sad.

      The inauguration is just for 1 day, and Zambians have the right to celebrate the inauguration of their beloved head of state and his vice.

      The Zambians’ right cannot be denied on account cost when politicians have the right to petition even before finding any evidence, holding the nation to ransom for almost the entire month, causing more loss through non-productivity in the economy.

      So when it is a politician fighting for his own selfish ambition, it is his right to keep galavanting from count to court and back, costing the nation far more than this single-day’s function.

      What about the right of the commoner who wants to be accorded chance to celebrate the important event, should their right be denied?

      Peace for Zambia

    • Mismanagement, high levels of poverty, deployment of political thugs to interfere in public institutions and corruption must be declared as national disasters — hence pipo will come in large numbers to put to rest lungu, Pf devoncee says.

  7. Let’s suppose zambia’s workforce is 5 million
    Meaning 50 million man hours will be lost just to swear in one person. These lost man hours will not be replaced in the next 50 years, that I can assure you

  12. This is third term for our children and soon they will sit for final exams. Loss of contact time is again promoted by PF. If a teacher stayed away due to family problem, he/she will be blamed for not teaching. Now,why monday and Tuesday declared holidays? I don’t support changwa but again told not to reach poor children for two days,why ?

  13. Secession is the only answer – Copperbelt and Lusaka Provinces are not home provinces for the Bembas and their cousins in the Eastern Province. Therefore, let there be a new chapter opened henthforth and I am inving all young men and women in these provinces to stand up and fight for a just course, to liberate Lusaka, part of Central, Copperbelt, North Western, Western and Southern Provinces to self determination and independence as a separate republic. We can’ t afford to continue with these morons with no brains whose main agenda is to preach tribalism and sowing seeds of war. We are ready to take arms and fight for this just cause. Enough is enough and we can create our own destiny with a positive future. It’ s no more time to be led by PF thugs and their chief thug Edgar Lungu. The liberation war is inevitable.
