Appeal for presidential visit
I would like to appeal to President Mr. Edgar C. Lungu to pay us a visit here in Meanwood Kwamwena near ZNS Chamba valley. We bought plots on a private land, but there is poor road network. Kindly help us.
Re-opening of UNZA, CBU welcome
The re-opening of the University of Zambia and the Copperbelt University is a welcome development as well as a relief to the students. UNZA and CBU were closed early this year following the riotous behaviour by the students over meal allowances. The Government was compelled to close the universities as a last resort. This is because of the impasse between the students and university managements.

Bravo, Zambia police
Bravo Zambian Police for patrolling and bringing sanity to our communities. We just want to say ‘thank you’ for your hard work. We have seen a change. At least ritual killings have stopped.
MTN should explain its ‘Spaka’ promotion
I would like to express great disappointment over MTN services. I have experienced that when you subscribe for their promotion called Spaka you to have a cheaper way of communicating especially on Whatsapp using their MB offer. However, on many occasions when customers subscribe and have airtime left, they deduct both the MB offer and airtime then send a message saying ‘‘you have n0 airtime in your account, please recharge’’. It’s very frustrating and disappointing. Can MTN change the way they run their machines because we are very angry about this.
A peaceful mouth speaks peace
‘‘As we head towards Armageddon on 11th August, 2016,’’ is how HH put it. But a peaceful mouth from President Edgar Lungu said we should not abuse provisions in the Constitution like freedom of speech to bring anarchy in the country. Those with ears can hear and see the difference.
Bring ritual killers to book
Permit me to air my views over the recent ritual killings and violent acts that followed later. It is sad to hear people being killed and their body parts removed, as it has been the case in the recent past in some parts of Lusaka. People now live in fear and uncertainty. This also happened in Mansa. Security forces must help the police to intensify day and night patrols to curb this vice and bring to book suspected ritual killers. All those proved guilty should be punished.

Sex workers ‘steal’ State Lodge husbands
We women of State Lodge camp are complaining over our husbands who are sleeping in Kangwanda village situated after the check point near the school. Our appeal to Government is that in this village, prostitutes are hiding dangerous criminals. Please clear this bush and build something there.
