    These jokers and conmen. Instead of working they are busy with personal vendettas. Endless comedy.

    Remember Malupenga and Mwamba have both tried to have each other arrested.

    The same should go to all public servants. In the past, no permanent secretary or any Government official was allowed to issue public statements or address the Press without the approval of Secretary to Cabinet.
