  2. The new Ghana president is educated I think it’s only fair that he invited educated people what segregation are you talking about go to Kulima tower and hang out with the thugs there if you don’t segregate, eat with them talk with them thugs are thugs like pf is full of thugs I even animal packs are led by the same bread you can’t have wolves being lead by bears, I m not and RB supporter but I d rather have a gentle man , than have broot plus truth be told what has pf done for the very kaponyas nothing only a few who are bembas are the ones who have been given jobs so really even for the kaponyas it’s not good so don’t come and glorify sata and pf band Nyama soya you go represent good luck and enjoy

  5. ba watchdog pliz we know pf has not delivered but promoting RB as the president for all is nonsensical pfs failure does not make RB a beta preisdent

    • That was His Identity just like Donchi Kubeba. Its not ZWD who said it.

    • @ridge, just face it, he was president for ALL, he used to say it, and lived it,didnt he tolerate your pf to do whatever they wanted and did, he allowed them to wade pangas on roads, he allowed them to insult,and tell lies, until you believed them and got them into govt. for sure as you have said, now you are seeing failures….instead of developing its politicking, chasing, and confusing themselves and other opposing views…your Medias znbc,daily mail,times, post are all for pf, and its clear they cant swallow their pride to just show RB as public news, but they wasn’t you to believe their lies upto now about RB, well the world has embrassed RB and its not a lie or fiction, its real…

  6. RB: PRESIDENT FOR ALL ZAMBIANS
    SATA: PRESIDENT FOR BEMBAS ONLY, THOUGH SOME DONT LIKE HIS KIND OF RULE.

    RB: SCHOOLED PRESIDENT
    SATA: UNEDUCATED

    RB: ABLE TO DISCIPLINE HIS MINISTERS LIKE MULONGOTI
    SATA: SUPPORTS IN-DISPLINE MINISTERS LIKE KABIMBA

    RB: HELD PRESS CONFERENCES TO GIVE US VIEW OF WHERE THE COUNTRY IS HEADING.
    SATA: AFRAID TO FACE THE PRESS BECAUSE HE WILL FAIL TO ANSWER THEIR QUESTIONS.

    ETC,ETC,ETC,ETC

  8. i think RB has never really been a president i have been proud of. when i voted for PF its not because i thought PF were better than MMD at the rate we were moving. RB was more of a laizzes faire president than a worker. he was running this country like a father in a home. yes there are attributes that are good about the man as an individual but not as a president

    ine wine - January 7, 2013
    06:56

    • what hard wok is Sata doing, he is also laizzes faire, we dont hear him doing anything, a president should rule like a father, not threatening everyone each time he shows up in public, thats all we get, and yet the ministers are disorderly, so @ine wine you like what is going on NOW??/honestly

  9. Mind you, the same president in Ghana has been shunned by some sects within Ghana and his election was recently set under probe. so weather sata goes or not, what income will the general zedian get?zero and so better someone doesn’t go than pretending rb is president for all. we have to be mindful that among the millions that voted sata, some are high ranking citizens and not merely kaponyas. even kaponyas are people unless you want to segregate against them.

    • which money has ba sata brought each time he went out to other countries, lets use common sense here, not just saying street words….just accept rb has proved to be better after we voted,,

      NewZambia - January 7, 2013
      07:46

    • So what if high ranking people voted for Mr. Sata. He just has to deliver on his promises and put his house in order. PF is a failure full stop.

  13. I read with dismay pf registering hungry cadres n transport them 2vote in byelection. Cheats, tinpots must be fought and eliminated frm wherever they are zambia under siege of this tinpot dictator. RB was not a dictator. This one corrupt, tribal, liar, tinpot dictator.

  17. EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO DEVELOPMENT, NEVER EVER UNDERESTIMATE THIS FACT. HONESTLY, HOW CAN U ELECT A CALL BOY TO HIGH OFFICE LIKE THE OFFICE OF A PRESIDENT ? DULL AND UNEDUCATED PEOPLE ALWAYS ELECT THEIR FELLOW FAILURES IN ORDER TO FAIL THE COUNTRY FURTHER – HENCE THE CASE IN ZAMBIA.

  19. I have learnt a lesson , that Education makes a big difference in a person’s life .RB is a graduate,so his way of solving problem is different and relating to others, but other one qualifed to be a leader on tribal grounds ,now we shall see which one is better education or tribal?.

  20. Ba PaFwaka party just accept the fact that RB was by far far better than Ukwa CNP. Dont be bitter over nothing. I know it pains to just think why people ignore you when you think you are the main man. Just celebrate with us and tomorrow we will celebrate with you when Ukwa CNP is invited in Zimbabwe.

  40. RB is unemployed and has time to attend such functions. Just look at the other people who have been invited Bakili Muluzi, Gowan all are unemployed.

    Sunkutu Hichilema - January 6, 2013
    20:45

    • It is not the issue of being unemployed but whom you invite. Ghana cannot invite a dictator like Sata because she is a star for African development in the eyes of many and they cannot stoop so low to invite the illiterate dictator, Sata!

      Sara - January 6, 2013
      20:59

      • U support him because u were stealing together,idiot.

        jozi - January 6, 2013
        21:32

      • Sara,
        How many serving African leaders have been invited? Are they also dictators. RB and his friends are unemployed and have time to attend such functions. Sata doesn’t do a lot of travelling himself. Last time he sent Winter Kabimba to represent the country at a similar event in Gambia. So even if Ghana had invited him he probably wouldn’t have gone there anyway he would have sent a junior minister or VP to represent him.

        Sunkutu Hichilema - January 6, 2013
        21:33

        • Thats exactly why you are ichilema. I do not think you think right.

          Chimangeni Napapaata - January 6, 2013
          22:50

    • Even Sata is busy, what is he busy with? Scheming to create a one party state or busy on dialysis or procedure that performs many of the normal duties of his kidneys, like filtering waste products from his blood because his kidneys no longer work adequately. Useless leader!

      Sara - January 6, 2013
      21:04

      • Unga seke but zoona.ati sata is busy.busy doing what?peeping in the camera.he was suppose to be busy preventing munali nickel mining from finally closing and making all its employees jobless,he was suppose to be busy making sure zesco does not lay off the 300+ labour force.i can now confidently say that president sata is the laziest president zambia has ever had.
        Chi Rb chena chaume though i did not vote for him.he is now enjoying pressure free journeys.wherever you are rb,just know that i am happy that you are representing me and my family.

        22:02

      • You are happy because he is appointing relatives to all positions of government.

        You are happy because he is locking up all opposition leaders in order to create a one part state.

        You are happy because he told us he would not allow Chinese to exploit after coming to power, but he is now dinning with them.

        You are happy because he promised more money in our pockets, more jobs, Windfall tax, Constitution and Barotse Agreement in 90 days he has done none.

        I know why you are happy. You are sharing in the plunder.
