    Levy Mwanawasa (mhsrip) said Zambians have a short memory. He seems to have been right. Kalaba was indeed accused of sending his relatives and friends in foreign service. Now he and his friends and relatives are victims!

    If the lady in the picture is the elder sister to Kalaba and assuming the picture was taken this year, then I could be much older than Kalaba but look much younger.

    Shame for kalaba who spent his time insulting guy boy for the current head to be the president. This is normal mostly in Africa were professionals don’t have Cvs. Well that aside I now come to the the inquiry set to hear the causes of regional voting and election violence I wish to advise the learned justice that his really wasting his time whuch besides the allowance I bet he would have quit it already. Today we have him travelling around the country yet we are seeing excertly what caused the violence happen, UPND are deny payments left right and centre but on the other hand PF is given security at every angle in the country including tax payers bought camera even for the SG. Shame and sad.

    the only thing consistent in this country is the corruption and continuous misleading of the general public. its sad to see the current state of affairs in Zambia. there is a major need for change in our country. we must address our faults not as political parties or presidential candidates, but as a people, one nation , regardless of tribe or religion. we are all the end of the day we all need to remember that if we ever want to make real change that can be shared and manifested for generations to come.

    If someone is not for you why keep even those who worked closely with him? such people will not stand for your vission and passion to save the people so better they all follow him or simply be fired- it is very much expected- well done greatman H.E Lungu

    Sometime back you Watchdog were telling us how Kalaba was giving jobs to his girlfriends. I hope Chimese got that job on merit. But such purging happens everywhere in the world under similar circumstances – even in America.
