  2. RB, a polished diplomat,the best president zambia had ever had.The most recognised zambian president in the world. You leave it or you take it, it is all up to you.

  3. Mr Banda is being pointed fingers at, lets wait and see how many fingers will be pointed at you. Moreover no one will be as successful as Rupiah Banda when it comes to International recognition. Keep on hating as he keeps on enriching his name/ CV.

  4. If sata was a dictator childish bwezani banda could hav been behind bars for stealin.fake watchdogs.

    • If sata has failed to convict kapoko with overwhelming evidence of thieving how could he have managed with rupiah when there is zero evidence? And point of correction, Ukwa is indeed childish. Just refer to the parliament opening speech

  5. I’m waiting for a comment from Winter and his ‘friend’ Masebo or any other PF cadre.

    I will spare GIVEN this time around.

    By the way, i hope the more you become more vocal in speaking ill about the opposition in Zambia, the less the price of meali-meal will become.

    Talkative politicians with nothing to offer but simply to enrich themselves and their families.

  6. RB is learned. He suits anywhere. How do you invite former president and not incumbent? Valueless. Sata will lecture at Sondela after retirement.

  7. what of sata when is he going to be invited ?

    coolman - January 7, 2013

  8. RB= Mealie Meal K38.400 in 2011
    Sata= Mealie Meal K75.000 in 2013

    Where are we going Zambia, HH is very correct we will face very hard times with Sata

  9. RB, PRESIDENT FOR ALL ZAMBIANS. I think he was for the following reasons: He allowed freedom of assembly for all Zambians; His Police IG protected all Zambians and political parties whenever there was need; His agriculture policies allowed the selling of mealie meal at K40,000 to all Zambians; His cabinet was better balanced with Zambians from all provinces than…; He respected “the wrong decision” of the “majority” of Zambians by accepting the will of all Zambians… Indeed, a great man he is.

    • My dear friend you are 100% correct RB was by far the best President Zambia has ever had.

      Fred phiri - January 7, 2013

      • Good to know there are people who are objective , not those blinded by loyalty

        joze - January 9, 2013

  10. RB = Mealie meal price @ K40,000.00 or less per 25 Kg

    MSC= Mealie meal price @ K58,000.00 or more per 25 Kg

    Clock Wise - January 7, 2013

  11. RB = Mealie meal K40,000.00 or less
    Sata = Mealie meal K58,000.00 or more

  12. There is NO substitute for humility and nobility. Two very essential human traits that sadly are missing in our current crop of leaders. Look at the arrogance of Winter and Masebo. They would do well running a bar together coz its the only place where wild rumour mongering is acceptable as part of entertainment and certainly not in governance!

  14. he lost because of bemba tribalism. otherwise he seemed to be a president for all zambians. my people are tribalists lets face it. to solve this problem of tribalism, we must point at the biggest culprits who are the bembas.

    Sata M.C. - January 7, 2013

    • He did not lose because of bemba tribalism but because of the BAD constitution which allows for a president to elected by a minority of voters. Watch out. The next constitution will be as bad as the present one. The majority 57% voted against Sata.

  15. If hez president for zambians they would have voted for him, but he did all what he could to rig the elections but failed, hez your presido but not for a normal zambian. Jealousy pipo.

  19. It was also sad to hear that KK never went to south Africa for the celebrations of ANC, and yet Mandela is his friend,i wonder what has got into KK to be campaigning for PF and telling everyone to support PF, instead of telling his UNIP party which he has dumped with his SON???its funny, how can KK be busy supporting PF when his pary UNIP is still there and his only dear son is president…that he even shunned appearing at the ANC just to be busy receiving CADRES for PF?/ Really? has he become active in politics, i though his benefits MUST then be stopped

You see, when RB was in state house PF cried he is traveling too much, they thought they fixed RB by lying to get him out, kanshi they were just jealous of his invitations, NOW RB is not in state house, YET he is STILL TRAVELING….wooooo, mwailashya…RB still travels the same way he did before, this time the world is inviting him even MORE…
