What is that protruding on your belly Mr President? Ipad or…?

Ailing dictator Michael Sata will soon to appoint a Referendum Commission that will conduct the  National Referendum on adopting the Constitution of Zambia, according to information deliberately leaked to the Watchdog by  Minister of Justice Wynter Kabimba’s office.’

The Commission will be set up at a time when the Technical Committee has finished holding the National Consultative Forum on the Draft Constitution in Lusaka,’ reads part of the document leaked to the Watchdog.

Continues the document: ‘President Sata is considering appointing Supreme Court Judge Florence Mumba to chair the Referendum Commission while two other members will be Non Governmental Organizations Coordinating Committee (NGOCC) board chairperson Beatrice Grillo and the Young African Leaders Initiative governance advisor Isaac Mwanza.’

According to the document Justice Minister Kabimba said: “the PF still remains committed to fulfill its promise of the referendum as contained in the PF manifesto”.

  10. In my opinion, a Referendum is the only way to go in order for Zambia to come up with a people’s driven constitution . It shall surely be a Big Plus to the head of state and the entire government if this very important document was to be subjected to a referendum. Thanks to you in advance.

  15. STATE HOUSE OFFICIAL VERSION

    You people seem to be deviating yourselves away from the principles of reality. We have been magnanimous enough and allowed this unwarranted speculation but there comes time when enough is enough. If you were versed with the happening at statehouse you would have known that his excellence Micheal Sata was concealing some presents which he intended to surprise the kids with. What you see there could have been books, dvd, ipads or laptops (real ones not katele’s). Due to unexpected circumstances he reviewed his plan, reshuffled the gifs, realigned the presents from his back to his belly and then reversed his decision. So the fancy gadgets were rebased to just a mere photo shoot out.

  17. John Lennon (Singer):

    Some years before, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:

    ‘Christianity will end, it will disappear.

    I do not have to argue about

    that.. I am certain.

    Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him’ (1966).

    Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.

    Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ):

    During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

    Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being made President, then he died.

    Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet):

    During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ),

    while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:’God, that’s for you.’

    He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.

    The man who built the Titanic

    After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.

    With an ironic tone he said:

    ‘Not even God can sink it’

    The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

    Marilyn Monroe (Actress)

    She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show.

    He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.

    After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said:

    ‘I don’t need your Jesus’.

    A week later, she was found dead in her apartment

    Bon Scott (Singer)

    The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang:

    ‘Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell’.

    On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.

    Campinas (IN 2005)

    In Campinas , Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend…..

    The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:

    ‘My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.’

    She responded: ‘Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause Inside Here…..It’s Already Full ‘

    Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died,

    the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.

    The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken

    Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer) said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.

    In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

    Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

    Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive….

    ‘Jesus’

    PS: If it was a joke, you would have sent it to everyone. So are you going to have courage to send this?.

    I have done my part, Jesus said

    ‘If you are embarrassed about me,

    I will also be embarrassed about you before my father.’

    You are my 8 in 8 seconds. I am not breaking this.. No way!

    I’M TOLD THIS WORKS!!!!! Bishop T..D. Jakes ’8 Second Prayer.’ Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!

    ‘Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless me, my family, my home, and my friends, in Jesus’ name. Amen.’

    Pass this message to 8 people {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{EXCEPT YOU AND ME}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}…..You will receive a miracle tomorrow.

Maybin kambwili can take over or lubinda coz they are wise and shares the same principles with sata for the poor. But even that can only be when God takes sata after he builds a better zambia for all of us. Sata will not die now coz God has not yet spoken. As for all of u wishing him died I pray that Back to the sender. Long live micheal

  23. The trouble with reviewing the current republican constitution in Zambia is that it takes only one person to throw a spanner in the works,and that person is the President of this country ; and when he disrupts the process that can be the end of the debate.That’s why the republican Presidential powers should be clipped.
    So,if Michael Sata wakes up tomorrow and decides that ALL that has been agreed upon at the Constitution Convention should become incorporated in a new republican constitution,it can happen,even without a referendum being held.
    Kaunda,Chiluba,Mwanawasa and Banda had no interest to give us a people-driven constitution,that’s why we are in this mess.
    It remains to be seen whether Michael Sata will also fail to give us a constitution which will stand the test of time.

  36. I am appealing to all those responsible of choosing Sata’s catheter and urine drainage bag because of hus urinary incontinence (leakage) to choose small bags not the kind that protrudes like the one has on in this photo.

    The best Sata can do is use a leg bag attached to him all day. You can move around freely with a leg bag not this one that makes the stomach look abnormal.

    You can easily hide your leg bag under pants. They come in all different sizes and styles – please Kaseba choose a small and smart urine bag for Ukwa.
