  5. I hope we will now have a representative government. Dictator Michael Sata’s government was the worst in Zambian history followed by the dull Rupiah’s government. Chiluba and Mwanawasa tried because the issue of tribalism by then was not so pronounced. dictator Sata did it so openly/savagely and this will continue to haunt him even in his grave. He is resposible for the divisions in the country. Lungu/ Lombe chibesakunda/ Msiska/ Libongani and many others are all outcomes of the same stupidity and yet Vodiga Lungu wants to pretend he is not related to the dead dictator sata just because he has an eastern name. Zambians want a regionally balanced government as a starting point in unifying the country. We do not want people from particular parts of the country to continue rulling alone.The useful idiot may again nominate people from the same region where he has a lot of MPs instead of doing it the other way round. Lungu is too excited for nothing and may bring on the table a very biased cabinet, especially that he has no vision and follows the vision of an uneducated fallen dictator who never went to school. It infact looks like School came out of Lungu sometime back. It is too much of reading propagandist Emmanuel Mwamba,s speeches each time he is in public

  7. Kindly list all the names of diplomatic staff so that people can see the imbalance in the tribal distribution, this will allow you to justify the changes you will drastically make in the diplomatic service

  9. I would like to congratulate HH for sounding 2016 alarms for PF. I am a Bemba and will continue to vote for UPND over and over, not because HH is Tonga, but simply he is the best Zambia has as of now. I
