Fr Bwalya is right


I refer to the letter from Fr Frank Bwalya to Ms Sibeso, mother to M’membe (Daily Nation, September 23,2015). This letter when read can easily be noted that it came from a person who came from a home where he was taught to respect elders regardless of where one came from as his mother, father and uncle. Compare the humility in the letter to editorials in the Post written by Ms Sibeso’s son on presidents Chiluba and Lungu. Simply indecorous.

Union leaders becoming



The judiciary union leaders are not telling the truth. They are just advancing their political goals. They do not have support from the 6,000 workers for the political strike which they want to push through. Before the PF came into power the lowest of them was getting K700 to K1,000. Then PF came and the lowest is getting K3,500. What the union leaders are doing now is politics? Let Hon Kambwili defend the workers from what happened at UTH not to be repeated at judiciary.




Solar-powered milling plants welcome


The solar-powered milling plants are a good idea to reduce basic food prices. These plants must be located countrywide and it will be futile if retail shops are insufficient and left unsupervised. The cartel would make sure it enlists members of Zambia Co-operative Federation on its payroll so that this exercise does not go anywhere.

The presidential speech



Congratulations Mr President, your speech at Parliament was humble, visionary and inspirational. However, consider implementing the five new ministries next year so that they can be budgeted for. In the same vein, consider abolishing ministries of Gender and Chiefs so that their functions can be done by Community and Local Government or  the Vice President’s office respectively. Consider cutting costs by reducing the number of deputy ministers.

Where is he getting the

money from?


What is the problem with PF in Kafue? A senior council official is selling plots in front of Rail club which belongs to Madam Lungu, the widow. One wonders where the man gets the money to buy vehicles. The PF needs help in Kafue.

UPND should explain


I find it very strange the condemning of the splitting of some ministries by the UPND. Can they explain how they will manage two vice presidents and who among them will be the running mate to HH; if that is not bloating the government?. It’s very confusing.




Well done, President



I commend  President Lungu for abolishing the building of houses for former presidents. Building of individual mausoleums for departed presidents is equally costly and space consuming, hence it should also be abolished. It would be cost-effective to build one big mausoleum which can accommodate 30 to 50 graves under one roof for departed presidents.

Some media houses up to no good


It is a fact that some media bosses and some opposition leaders are sadists and economic saboteurs. The earlier our Government realizes the better for Zambia. These people cannot hold us hostage in our own country as if we don’t think to allow them to continue on the path of destroying our country with impunity in the name of freedom of speech.
