  1. This what you started, PF, Lungu. And your president is quiet. People dying like chickens. People killing freely. The PF must go. We can’t have that condons such levels of insecurity in the country. If they can’t protect citizens, they must go. PF must go.

  2. The situation is alarming. The govt. needs to declare a state of emergency and enforce a dusk to dawn curfew immediately.How many more lives will be lost? How many lives have been lost to gassing? The perpetrators of the Gwembe murder must be arrested immediately.
    Zambians .this is no time for blame gaming.Its time to arise and stop this killing of innocent lives. The population needs to be aware that no death has happened and most of it are just rumours.

  3. There seems to be only one answer to the current breakdown of law and order; early elections! I urge the president to choose peace instead of flexing military muscle on the people he purports to be protecting. Mr president accept the your own failure in governance and do not cover up this failure with brutality. It would evil and all your prayers will be in vain. The people are your most precious ‘commodity’. Please learn to be selfless and empathetic.
