    Thank you for protecting our values. Those few uncultured men tell them to marry or frequent streets around Long Acres to look at the local nudity. We can not import it in the name of Zondwa at high cost. Save our forex. Be proud, be Zambian and love Zambian.

    Stopping zondwa is not a good thing, what should the NAC who ever is envold done is to let her come and give her rules and values of Zambia if she is so Willing or not she could have answered not like that.

    Let’s be a cultured society imwe Bantu.Let’s not import pornographic people in our nation who want to corrupt our morals,twakaka,twakana,takana,Gigo,NO!Let her go and perform kwao,period.

  22. D man

    what is these naked girl going to benifit the zambians, these country is called a chritian nation.

  23. chansa chiluba

    ZODWA might react in a XENOPHOBIC manner to our brothers and sisters in S/Africa, we all know how S/African are.NAC should have given her a dress code rules to follow rather than just banning her.The ban was supposed to be diplomatic and psychological,not a casual one.

  24. Bonaventure

    Thanks for not allowing them because we do not want to be tempted by them Zambia is a Christian nation

  25. LAcoste

    The world is changing and they is nothing you can do about that…..Zodwa na kaja ka gelo kazipenta are common acts.Its time zambia adopts change thats:gay rights na ba lesb na porno….should be lamented as a part of their rights .its Free world for heavens sakE!!!!!!!!

  26. sim 1

    Thoze who ar supporting her 2 come ar children of darkness.tupit o u want is chintako u don’t want even to marry.

  27. Lloyd

    But ba zambia reports! Sometimes u take a week to post news. Today because its zodwa youre very sharp or quicker! kikiki zodwa alinakantu!

  28. Barotseland

    The Minister of Religious has to check the dressings of our local musicians their dress code as if they are mahules/prostitutes. Just to mention a few the so called Mampis of this so called christian nation of Jules and drunkards. All these indecent dressings are there bcos of povent .They carry AIDs in their bodies so watch out and stick to yo wife .Cost of living is too high in Pf govt that’s why there’s to much prostitution in Zambia .

    • Dc

    Ba NAC, do not you drink? I know you were once a pupil. As you have that post, try to ask the male teachers/lecturers and/or do a research on that subject. What and/or which values are talking of,? Those of democracy or christianity or culture? Do you or your people follow them? Why being ashamed of what we (me, myself, I, they and you) have seeing, if not doing? Do you know not that culture is dymic as long as there is globalisation? Let the outside in and the inside out. Reason, although you are reasonig, apply critical thinking, although you are creative. Is the subject not part of art? Take it slow, Ba NAC.

  31. hasty

    Comment….Hypocrites!

    • THE SECOND IGWE IN ZAMBIA

      The bible says remove what is in your eye before u remove a plunk which is in your friends eye

  32. Honorable John

    Mr honorable of tourism,I like the way you are doing,my country Zambia is actually a Christian nation.therefore,make sure that Zambia has reduced prostitution,when you check in courts you will find a lot of prostitute cases and also be aware that divorce contribute prostitute okay,work tightly with mr lubinda,health and education ministers over stated problems.thanks very much my Zambian people.

  33. cool

    if you have banned her to come into Zambia then I request that you should shutdown all disco houses country wide please where men pay as low as 30k to have sexual intercourse with girls who lives there

  34. Jms

    I would like to know what tribe is maanka.i doubt to say what province he comes from I know if you were in China you can debate on eating of other animals in short we don’t blame people but blame where the come from YOU ARE NOT CHRISTIANS BUT SATANISTS YOU CAN’T EVEN CONTROL YOURSELF. A GOOD LEADER ALLOWS OTHER PEOPLE TO FILL COMFORTABLE IN THEIR COUNTRY MIND WHAT YOU DO TO OTHERS THEY WILL DO LIKE WISE

    1.What’s the difference between Mampi and Zondwa?
    2. What’s the difference between Zondwa and Amanyenge?

    NAC IS JUST BROKE!
    People have the right to watch and listen to whatever they want. Since when did Gov’t start choosing for people what to watch and listen to?
    Everyone has a freewill. What is good for C Mato can not be good for me and I should not condemn! And Ba NAC what powers do you have to regulate people’s behavior? Are you now a regulatory body? Think!!!!!!!!!!!
    Enemies Of progress who don’t understand cultural exchange.

  54. Black panther

    The people are already corrupt the same NAC will follow zodwa on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter and watch all her videos even though they are stopping her here on public

  55. seasonal commentator

    Bushe she is the only hot artist in SA who can come here in Zambia? Plis you can still invite different artist with good morals better than Z.W.

  56. Peace dazzle

    Hehehe…In Zambia we do have prostitutes who move naked in the streets..but we can’t promote this any more…so it’s good that the so called Zodwa Wabantu has been banned..??

  57. benard

    Welcome move,if this can be extended to these ladies who stand at night in the streets so that our christian values can be realised fully.

  58. Tom London

    Let us face it . Religion and Art are different but some how similar . OK look at this then ( in religion there are so many believes , some are sdas , Catholics and so on and so even in Art there are different tastes .
    If you don’t eat crocodile meat don’t go for it but don’t condemn .
    This publicity has infact made Zondwa no kabudula more famous than what most people think . wabantu does it to intertain but what about those women in nightclubs .
    We are hipocrites iam sorry .

  59. Jms

    You are talking of Christian values look we have Moslems in this nation and other denominations tell us have you discussed the insure or you are an island

  60. Jms

    Tom London you are fantastic we need such ideas

  61. Nicolas

    Today Zodwa Wesu is bad to Zambian public. Tomorrow she will be performing in this same country called Zambia. After all, those saying no to Zodwa have actually watched her perform in some way.
    It was in the same interest of national morals that channel O on ZNBC TV was removed but those with Dstv continued being entertained by the same channel leaving ordinary Zambians disadvantaged.
    Allow Zodwa in the country.

  62. ZODWA WABANTU

    WHY ARE ZAMBIAN MEN DESIRING ME LIKE THIS?IM SORRY I DONT WANT TO MAKE YOU START MASTUBATING IN YOUR BEDROOMS OR EVEN CARS NO.JUST LET ME BE I WONT FORCE MYSELF TO COME THERE.

  70. Jms

  71. Joseph B Melly

    We don’t want pornographic people to come in our Country..This is Christian Nation.

  72. JOSEPH kalaluka

    We ve some prostitutes, everywhere, their just moving without pant’s. what culture, are u taiking abt ? let her come.

  73. Chansa Didier jr

    They did well

  74. Majoni Tyson

    Barring zondwa to enter our sacred nation is a very right decision becoz she shows herself that she is an angel of devil, in addition to that our young girls may copy such an immoral culture. Let them even deal with our Zambian women who are dressing like zondwe, becoz they are many and it’s not a surprise to hear about zondwe, we,re seeing naked women every time every where,quickly extend that sanction to all of the.

  75. Dundumwezi

    Ilenda ilepya!!!!! Chenda bwamba

  76. Sunshine

    Respect the rules of the country , even Shaka’s time they were leafs to put on.come on put some senses in your skull.

  78. Luckyz

    Guyz what do you want to promote for you to support this to come in our country I think it doesn’t make an sense at all

  79. Hasim

    The NAC did well to bar a pantless dancer to come and showcase her unattractive agry body. We stand to protect our norms and values, after celebrating world women’s day why should we allow such a disrespective way of dance in Zambia. She’s a disgrace to the most respected people (women).

  80. Dirty mind

    That woman is ugly…. Let are keep her stinking bum in her country.

  81. man muza

    Wooo wat greatly comedy guyz ,let her come and perform coz she knows wat shez doing to her ,its talent given by the evil spirit , if u don’t want to see her not even dare to go from the show ,coz wen u go there U will dancing with her pant less .

  82. Musonda David

    Bullshit,countless naked whores rule the night from Nakonde to Chirundu.Let her come,at least she is not afraid to show her assets. Christian Nation ifyabupuba!!

  83. Jms

    We have seen that if you kill you will be killed as well so be careful you will be done same.Now I’,m afraid if can welcome some one and put their laws in place. YOU ARE RIGHT BY SHOWING THAT HERE YOU DON’T PUT YOUR LAWS IMPRACTICAL PERSON CAN COME AND DO WHAT EVER HE OR SHE WISHES WHEN YOU GO TO ROME DO WHAT THE ROMANS DO NOW FOREIGNES ARE COMING TO DO WHAT EVER THEY WISH THAT’S WHY YOU DISCOURAGE OTHERS BE STRONG BY BEING STRONG IT DOESN’T MEAN BECOMING HUGE AND SO MUCH MUSCLES NO BUT BECOMING A NEUTRAL PERSON
