  1. One thinks that reshuffles are meant to correct the wrongs and move forward smoothly, nay, here, you replace an incompetent PIG and relace him with a more incompetent and biased PIG. I cannot imagine how Zambia will be under Kapeso the cadre. As to the quality of ministers ati ba Kachinda, you move 100 steps backwards from bena Lusambo. Indeed it is a miss in totality. Where is Kaizer?

  2. What a load of rubbish. Lungu is so dull mwebantu. This dull mediocre koswe mumpoto has to resign immediately. Reshuffles, what reshuffles? We are being led by thieves. From stealing votes to stealing mukula trees. Ati the president.

  3. It is rather late for any damage control. Image building has come rather late when irreversible damage has already taken root .Koswe Mumpoto has brought with it unbearable outcomes and open resentment by many.No amount of reshuffles will change anything. I now agree that PF and its leadership is being troubled to rule the country. When fart has been unleashed there no other way to control the smell.

  4. Doris is she dumped. Jean Kapata must be the first to drop but madam mukula logs is there to supply corruption and maintain the supply chain

    • The way the” COOKIE CRUMBLES”: The PF is only a matter of time. Remember King BERLUSAZAR in the BIBLE?

  5. It is academic. Political will to selflessly serve the electorate is not there. Chipantepante chabe!

    People are dreaming please get the basics right the date of reshuffle is so wrong some won’t even be around then that’s politics at its worse.

    By the way where is Dora Siliya? Jean kapata went to Germany for safe planet conference, but keeps cutting the trees was a waist of public funds.
