    A leader who ferments confusion is not a leader but a glorified thug.that is what some of these dictators in the opposition are doing. If this man continues like this he Must be caged. Those supporting him have no idea that the chap has his loot stacked in safe tax havens out of the country where he is going to run to when he sets the country ablaze through his anti Chinese Xenophobic stance.

      Iwe ka PM whatever that means, your president’s remarks sparked both UNZA and CB riots. Tell your so called president to tame his mouth. I have given you ten (10) days to produce evidence of the sale of both Zesco and Zaffico or we de-register your so called party.

      muntungwa here is the proved you want to know shup up you fool…. UPND
      President Hakainde Hichilema ducked
      questions about his statement about
      ZAFFICO being sold to the Chinese
      when he featured on Hot FM breakfast
      Hichilema could not bring himself to
      offer a categorically where he fished
      the information about the sale of
      ZAFFICO that infuriated some
      employees forcing them to riot.
      The UPND leader opted to stick to the
      elementary response of “I did not
      incite anybody.”
      “I did not incite anybody to riot, let’s
      state that very clear. My position is that
      I incited nobody to riot. What is true is
      that citizens are aware of what is going
      on in the country,” he said.
