    Chanda is supporting PF on grounds of boot-licking not basing on micro-economics on Zambian conditions. Subsidy is there in both rich and poor countries. The only problem in our case the removal of subsidy coincidental to Euro-bond as one of the condition attached to it. Its not true that the Euro-bond money will solve our economic crisis. All politician,CEOs,India traders and expatriates [UPPER CLASS]

          We are not against education but violent behavior. Mind you, dialogue is a more civilized method of solving than throwing bricks at each other.

      I have a UK degree and agree with Popopo, relocate them to Chongwe. That’s prime land there, they can build more offices there. Let’s have an Up-town. Cairo rd and Lumumba rd is filthy. Just keep the Vendors away from Uptown.

    Some of things its better for the government to explain and defend such decisions. What does Chanda know about the whole issue. Let government explain to us why they plan to remove the subside. Maybe the reasons could genuine – we shall tell.

    At first we Lifwekelo speaking for the ‘citizens’, then came Thabo Kawana speaking for the ‘youth’ now we have Sunday Chanda speaking for ‘the society’. One wonders why the registrar of societies allow such individuals to abuse the acts. Let these be taught a lesson so that we put an to this nonsense. Chanda should learn from what has become of the individuals I have mentioned.

    Stop posting “Ndeloleshyafye” – Your passiveness is unproductive – and you are making the blog BORING! That’s why you are taken advantage of. It’s not clever to just write “Ndeloleshafye”. You are mentally lazy and relying on other bloggers to discuss issues for you.


    Stop it! You are mental parasites.

    Mali- Only God will save the human race, believe it or not, some of our fathers used to miss the colonial days a few years after independence. Some food for thought.

    Current Government and MMD are no different; exposing a mere student who does not have a parliamentary seat is evil in itself. and for a bottle of wine he also goes to parade himself on media and speaking for who? The ones you are speaking receive free mealiemeal each month, stupd!

    You play with someone’s tummy you ‘re in for a rude shock!

    President Sata once said on Radio that “when someone hates you, that person will hate you even if you cook him chicken” but I’m saying: “structure or no structure people can still vote what they want.

    Mind you… God is still in control!

    you do not need to be an expert economist to understand that even if the government comes up with a transport system that will carter for the poor they are saying it might be cheaper yes but if you can reason like a normal individual you will require to incur costs to run any organization the so called UBZ come back will require great set costs two they will require administrative costs such us maintaining Clive Chirwa which if you reason will nerver come cheap strationery office equipment buildins and land Sandry expenses salaries for employees purchasing of the core center of the business which in this case are the buses they are talking about ETC there are so many we can even write a book tough i can not end here but pointing things like maintaining the Buses country wide under the same they will have to purchase spare parts which will have to be imported time is also important now is the they are saying there will be no subsidy on fuel which means the diesel and the petrol basically all petroleum products will be expensive in trying to provide for the so called poor in the society they will have to bring down the bus fairs lets say by 45% from the current bus fairs and the fuel prices will 25% more than hence there will be no profit for the organization to carter for the expenses Basically the cost of doing business hence in the long run such a business will not continue in existence i believe any business should be self sufficient that is just one point out of the many

    Now we look at the agricultural sector which the say they are trying to grow it will be directly affected because it uses mostly petroleum products
    i will end here expect more
