      I feel it is good to thank the PF on such developments even if you do not support them sir.

    Well done, it’s beautiful and the rate at which it has been completed should Shane critics.
    it’s good to go for sustainable development credit facilities, than abusing the legal and financial system and militia to run around those raids stealing from an achieved woman??? And then seeking to cover up and launder proceeds of criminality …. well meaning Zambians will always remember you ECL for the beautiful infrastructure you gave Zambia….not the privatization saboteurs, from which their followers are copying a culture of thieving and impunity. . Don’t allow such complacency.

    • Dumisani

      It’s one thing to complete these infrastructural projects But it’s another thing to see how long they will hold strong because a corrupt country like zambia always means more sand and less cement!

  10. kasoosa

    change is inevitable wether u lyk it o not.

  11. Hax

    Thanks Mr president,but my vote goes to HH ,wheth wh you like it or not

  12. Frank Chombela

    We’re paying so much money for these things but why are we getting substandard roundabouts that aren’t even lit? It’s not right.

  13. SP

    Why is PF taking credit. I am quite certain that the money for decongesting Lusaka City is a grant from the Indian Govt. This is one project they can’t steal money from….

  14. WILLIAM SIWO

    Zambia is now a land linked country hence the need to have such a good Road network. We have all seen the massive improvement in the Road Sector. Keep it up MR PRESIDENT. there is also need to increase the number of WEIGHBRIDGES in the Road Sector in order to curb overloading as it is one of the contributing factors to the collapsing of bridges and Culverts. Once again keep it up MR PRESIDENT and May GOD Bless Mother Zambia .

  15. Saga man

    Thanks a lot Mr President for such infrastructure but 2021 weather you like it or not you have to go

  16. MARTIN MUSHOKABANJI

    IF MONEY SWINDLED IN THE PRIVITISATION SAGA WAS UTILISED IN THIS WAY AWE SURE NGA PATALI, NOMBA CHILUBA NA H.H UMMM

  17. Lethal Weapon

    That project was a grant funded by the Indian government…commisioning of bridges can be done by a minister….ba lungu you should be occupied with more serious issues like how you plan to pay back the 27 billion USD we owe…be serious ka.

  18. Lethal Weapon

    A country that has a debt of 27 billion US dollars shouldn’t be experiencing load shedding imwe ba mumbwe…support wisely not just becoz you are a beneficiary of the stinking corruption.

    • BJ

      Dr. Weapon, nkhalani zeee when you don’t have anything to say. Ecl apapena nabomba. Give credit when due. Politics of bringing others down, ño bwino bwino!

      • Rumours

        It’s very honourable to leave the stage while the audience is clapping…thanks to the Indian taxpayer. Hope we can replicate the gesture.

  19. niso Kodibba

  20. Danilo

    Ba munwkole f**k dem all

  21. True Man

    The change should be to all part of Zambia not only on one town. It’s not a benefit to the one outs

  22. True Man

    The change should be to all part of Zambia not only on one town. It’s not a benefit to the one outs lusaka we need equality in terms of development

    • Awisi

      Filemoneka let those with God’s eyes keep seeing the development which is happening and those with the devils mind continue keeping a blind eye. With Dr ELLEN my vote will always remain yours period.

  23. Isaac Chitupa Chimanga

    I find the words used by the President ati “utupuba tuletalika”to be out of place mwe!I feel he should be above the level of one of his dull minister Lusambo.

  24. JMS

    BJ is useless,wait for VIP coming through.

  25. Happy DC Ndhlovu

    Let’s not personalize development. It’s not his Excellency’s money that built that built these bridges. Hence personalizing development becomes political campaigning. It is the governments responsibility to develop the country and this is a sign of them doing part of the job they were elected for. Corruption, pilfering and partial implementation of the law on citizens is exposing the weakness of the PF.

    • D'Kap

      But how many govts have you had? Why didn’t they do it?

  26. Chimushombo

    But better to improve people’s life before improving the structure of the Nation…We love you PFs

  27. Gm

  28. Gm

    Upnd you are saying that PF will lose in 2021 ,but why are your upnd mps & councilor s resigning from your party? This is clearly showing that upnd you are not doing good. I was very sad about you upnd what you did in northern province .
