  1. In Zambia what does such a rich CV have to do with how people vote? No one cares and the only thing that people care for is knowing the candidate has Grade 12 level education and that’s why they are on the ballot! Had people cared for the kind of service one of Mrs. Mwanakatwe’s CV could deliver Zambia would not be in a situation it currently finds itself with Lungu at the helm!

  2. Ndiwe chikaali madam! I never knew we had such big brains in our womenfolk. I salute you even if I don’t support the party you belong to. I just hope they give you a second chance if they ……. the August 2021 polls, which I very much doubt.
