    I was beginning to warm up to this old lady as the only sane person in PF. I haven’t heard of any scandal involving her and possibly her fingers are a lot far away from the public funds. Her useless apology has erased her good character. Anyway she’s not bad at all. The thief at state house is a problem. He is dirty and smelly.
    Signs off cute Chichi girl.

      If UPND has to learn a lesson,the voting NO by PF on a very well meaning motion moved by Garry Nkombo for the speedy payment of retirees monies should teach them to congratulate Government whenever they do good things than opposing everything GRZ does.Clearly,this is what PF did in Parliament by opposing a Bill merely because the opposition party moved it .However,in terms of implementing the Bill,GRZ will quietly implement it.

    No need to apologise Mama Wina, you voted correctly. The others voted against for no reason at all. is it fair to keep pensioners who served the govt waiting until their death….those are the funds that are being stolen, some surviving families, spouses etc don’t even know how much pension is due to their departed one. No need to apologise ba Veep

    Madam Vice President you voted with your heart, you compassion for the retired poor souls who sometimes die leaving their loved ones suffering with no source of income. Their retirement benefits end up in the pockets of ba pompwe in government. So don’t apologise please.

  12. Twalakumona

    That’s the biggest problem in Zambia, we support motions because they have been raised by our party member and not because they will in the long run lead to widely shared values

  24. hasty

    Comment appologising for what is right,,life is funny!

  25. hanene

    Zambian has a big problem. Voting for a motion morally right does not call for an apology. We see you as an upright old woman and you are showing us to be a stooge. When the opposition comes up progressive ideas, need is there for people of sound minds to support. The opposition is not there just to disagree with the ruling government. Do not work like a robbot.

  26. Allan

    Apologizing for what? In fear of the supreme ataaaseeee!

  27. Hasings

    Madam wina y are u in government f u failing to do the right thing for the people that voted for u….A motion that was raised by the mazabuka law maker shows that upnd is full of intellectuals that care about the welfare of the people of Zambia.. Anyway u people are good for nothing

    This certainly does not make sense.
    Why apologize for what you know is best? Because it turns out you sided with opposition?
