Congratulations to all. Make Zambia credible again.
Chipenzi, our well known cadre… this is only fair to UPND.
This is great combination Sister miti need also to be given something to do
What would we call this under PF?
THEY’RE BLOODY TRIBALISTS
Then under THE ABLE NEW DAWN
What’s this called?
A NATIONAL UNITY PROGRAMME!
LOL…! THIS IS HYPOCRITICALLY FAIR!.
If only Zambians and UPND understood that we are one despite of name differences they wouldn’t have labelled PF tribal. Appointments are about whom you wish to work with and not the which tribe i will work with. This is simply coming back to them. All those names come from my province and my cousin’s. A Kangwa is just a paya one name there.
Everything you see tribe you tribalist. You are thinking like a typical white racist man. May God deliver you from that sinful thinking.
Am not blaming HH here. I believe those are the people he knows well and trusts that’s why he appointed them. ECL must have known lots of people from the North and East. The reason he appointed them not that he favored his tribes. Unfortunately all lot’s of you UPND cadres including HH himself was tribalism.
And now everyone who plays the same game of name counting UPND introduced like M’membe are being labelled tribal.
Mr Kangwa’s confirmation in appointment as Secretary to Cabinet is well earned and deserved
Ati in UPND we will be appointing on merit kkkkkkkkk Mcdonald Chipenzi on merit
