Parliamentarians viewed the body in the morning before visiting Heads of State also get their chance later at State House where the body will lie in state prior to burial tomorrow.

    The”lockdown mode” was announced yesterday, if my memory serves me right. Bring interesting news please – not boring repetitive news. What about what is happening at the parliament gates for example.

  2. Blago

    Such an inconvenience is totally unnecessary and unreasonable. Will Sata`s body be going round Lusaka roads for Government to block the roads? Let the people go about their business.

  3. Thrash Metal

    The dude must be petrified at the prospect of going back to being a minibus conductor with the impending implosion of the Party for Fools (PF)!

  4. Walhelha Ochavo

    Too sad may his soul rest in peace

  5. Picture Frame

    Its time for change!

  6. Chils

    Roads closed, businesses paralyzed for 2 days and the government expects employers to pay employees for 2 days not worked. The cannot happen in North America.

  7. Zimba's finest

    Looks like lsk will be a restricted city tomorrow

  8. Cosy sister

    Brothers, what a relief it will be on 12th November. 11/11 will be burying of Satan of Zambia and reclaiming of the land of our ancestors. Henceforth it will a Zambian ruling Zambia.
