    Pa last you will find the only person belonging to PF is the president himself and all the ministers and deputies and PSs will be from UPND…Maybe Lungu is short of saying let this be a one party state to avoid checks and balances (my opinion

    It’s difficult to please politicians just like prostitutes. You were crying for inclusion in governance but you ‘ve started crying foul. Whoever is not pleased should hang.

    EL definitely needed to consult HH before appointing Shamunene…its is a question of morals. However I am not surprised. Politics have gone to the dogs. I now understand why KK used to stand against frogs and hoes….he had a premonition that after he leaves office, the whole political arena will be a total mess. This country only had two presidents: KK and Mwanawasa. The rest nibangwele…KK made his own mistake and this is because one of the greatest sons of Africa (KK) did not know when to step down. But when he finally stepped down, Mwanawasa should have taken over direct from him…. This country would have moved forward in every aspect not this nonsense we are seeing. IT IS SO NEAUSEATING.

    Iwe trixy star, HH is just a mere citizen like me who can also be appointed and demoted as well. Serving in government doesn’t mean serving a party but the people of zambia.
