  1. This woman is not zambian.She acquired zambian passport dubiously in order to conceal her true nationality.She is congole.Lozi women are morally strong.

  2. Leave the lady alone! That’s far much noble as compared to the thefts of June,Work,Talker and Leaking-Grandpa

  3. People that person is probably non Zambian it is so easy in Zambia to steal someone’s identity. A lot of people are coming to EU via Zambia ask yourself why?

  6. Not a Lozi, just a Bemba twat! Hang the whore and get the passport back to the owner.

  7. This woman was going to Congo not Zambia. that should tell you she is unlikely to be a Zambian.

  8. Shaka go to hell. you and all those who hate HH i wonder if you are paid for that primitive hatred. you want to call him tribal if he answers you back. may i give you some free advice that is also applicable to all those miserable souls like you.

    some of the teachers teaching in your village are tongas, some of the medical staff in your village are tongas. needless to say that, some of your girlfriends are tongas too. your foolishness does not help you in any way.

    the poor lady involved in this scandal is not a representative of lozi speaking people nor Zambians. if you are not that educated, try night school classes my hopeless friend. i will pay for you school fees.

  12. This is nonsense – and a pure case of stolen identity!! A congolese woman got a Zambian passport in the name of a lozi woman and has been caught in India! Otherwise what would a lozi woman be doing in Congo?

    CHOOMA - April 11, 2013

    • Delivering drugs of course. While it could be true that the suspect may not be Zambian after all it also plausible that she is and may have arranged for safe landing in the DRC. Drug couriers use all manner of convoluted routes. E.g. flying from Brazil to RSA then Zambia and finally Angola, when there are direct flights to Angola.

      mop - April 11, 2013

    • I agree with you. It “can’t never”, a Lozi tota! Who doesn’t know about Lozis’s self pride in Never wanting to sink so low in their clan, society let alone Barotseland!

      It would automatic in beleiving if it were a Bemba. Bembas live and thrive in crime like their fish and water. Does any Normal Zambian argue on such facts apart from the “nabulafye” thives!

      God save my country’s name. Of all the things, its agony to find oneself in the same Country as Citizens with this crap known as Bembas! Its Agony Indeed.

  19. Our Immigration structures are porous. its no wonder every other nationality can masquerrade as a Zambian. Given a chance, u would discover that the woman in question is actually of Senegalese or Nigerian or for sure Congolese Nationality. The easiest document for a foreigner to obtain in Zambia is a Zambian passport. What a pity. Our name has been tarnishe.

  27. Greediness is what is making our ladies indulge in these risky, shameful and embarrassing vices. they are ready to do anything ranging from prostitution, pornography, bestiality, lesbianism to drug trafficking. All this is done in the name of wanting to live a plush life. its very sad.

    missed call - April 11, 2013

  28. for some of these ladies,it is poverty that drives them into enganging themselves in such vices.It is a question of survival.Its rare for a person who is empowared and lives a relatively comfortable life who woould take such a risk.So,lets not demonise them but find means of empowering our women folk.

    • How can a poverty stricken woman find her to India?

      PF Yosila - April 11, 2013

      • only 2 possibilities; either she has been doing it before and can afford, or someone is using her as a courier and paid her ticket. The drug in question is also called mandrax. A courier is paid KR30000 upon delivery in jobg. She obviously planned to connect via road from Lubumbashi to jobg.

      Kb - April 11, 2013

    • it is just petty greedness.No drug lord would hire a woman without any educational background to go as far as india.Imagine a woman from chibolya in a plane going to Jburg.It would look suspious on its on but a university or college graduate that would be considered normal.WOMEN IN ZED SHOULD TAKE A CHILL PILL. SIMPLE.
