    By the way, are you guys aware that this Kalombo Mwansa does not contest any seats? He has been relying on nominations, is there something special about him?

    Mwansa Kalombo. Well, at least he can’t organise a coup. Why is he looking above the glasses. There is something fishy about this guy. And that is the best RB has?

    Wawa. Kalombo is one of those no impact chaps who chew silently. He is only in the news there are appointments. Actually i think he one of the dullest lawyers Zambia has produced
