    It’s always the vice that acts when the office holder is away. Now this is bringing confusion. Who is in charge is it mwanakatwe or inonge.

    • Naps

      Mrs Inonge Wina is out as well if you don’t know

    • Elis phiri

      Yes it is supposed to be the vice president acting as president.But the president and the vice are both out I guess.

    • Uncle Bizzo

      Ba Razor read the all story not the headline only before you pass your comments , the vice president is in Turkey that’s why the story states in absence of the president or the vice president the finance minister will act as the president , you’re not the only one who does that


    I’ve never seen a dull person like Razor, so you don’t know that Inonge is in Turkey I think you belong to the dustbin or pitlaterine or a dirty cunt whatever you like


    Comment congratulations

    Am sure it’s important to think before you comment.margret mwanakatwe she is very intelligent woman and sure she can look after the nation properly than Bowman lusambo to mention one.if you remember president lungu was once reporting to madam Margret at Barclays Bank.people stop this habit of commenting nonsense at social media
