    Best travels and best meeting with president Trump’s representatives,tell them about Zambia for them to know the truth than they lies they read on social media.atlist you have that chance to do something to convince them over the negativity published by haters.

  35. Asiff

    Even thieves and robbers ask God to help them execute their activities without being caught So help them Lord to enrich themselves while we the poor continue in our rags and gnashing our teeth.HH is a rich man but he doesn’t wish you the poor to remain in perpetual poverty. I don’t understand why some people are always blaming HH for their misery.ECL won’t even give you those old pairs of shoes and clothes he used to wear in Chawama.Ask Kaiza or Amos.

  36. Joseph Muhau

    Am in love with what Mr President His Excellence Edgar Chagwa Lungu is bringing to our country Zambia.
    May God bless your works to be a success.
