INTELLECTUAL DISHONESTY

The horrendous lie that the Zambian economy has collapsed must be condemned in the strongest terms possible and those spreading such falsehoods must be brought to book. It is regrettable that some respectable institutions have remained mute in the face of such malicious statements which do not only plant a seed of cynicism but demoralise […]

Mulenga the ingrate

  Mulenga Sata must be one of the most ungrateful persons in this country. Of all the injudicious reasons for defecting, Mulenga Sata’s wins the prize for being the most otiose. His own father did not appoint him into government perhaps knowing the sort of person he was.  But Edgar Lungu nominated him to Parliament […]

ECZ

  GOVERNMENT’S decision to introduce a Bill which raises the profile of the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) in line with the new Constitution and also gives the electoral body some teeth to bite offenders is a welcome move.

  GOVERNMENT should beef up staffing levels of inspectors in the Ministry of Labour to record any meaningful achievement following the introduction of a labour toll-free call centre to receive labour-related complaints.

Guy Scott’s havoc

  ZAMBIANS sometimes wonder what actually drives Guy Scott’s hatred for President Edgar Lungu. Dr Scott’s outburst that he will cause havoc in the country in an attempt to remove President Lungu and the Patriotic Front from power, is frightening.

Armageddon

  HH may not have meant it but the imagery of Armageddon at a time when the church is imploring for a peaceful election was not only incongruous but totally misplaced. Armageddon as an apocalypse or revelation represents the final battle between good and evil in which as expected evil is totally annihilated. This is […]

IMF stigma

  WE HAVE nothing against politicians politicking, but we have everything against misleading statements made by politicians which are meant to gain political mileage from misleading statements on technical economic issues with the intention of undermining the national economy. The attack of the International Monetary Fund programme which the Government intends to pursue is one […]

Humility is a virtue

Dr. Nevers Mumba has lost the plot completely. No political leader can stand against the tide of change.  No political leader can withstand the political will of the people and indeed no political leader who believes in the ballot can avoid the ballot so doggedly without regard for the outcome and often egocentric aspiration. The […]
