    • I told you! You are now in a mature police state. Continue praising the boss to avoid imprisonment or disappearance!

  1. Edith Nawakwi faces a simple choice. Give the state the evidence and she walks to freedom. All the best, Edith.

  2. This is not necessary at all. We did not vote for him to be harassing citizens. We did not vote for him to fix by doubling cost of living, doubling load shedding, doubling Kwacha depreciation, more than doubling price of fuel, more than doubling price of mealie meal. No we did not for any of this nonsense.

    Vote wisely in 2026.

    • Indigo Tyrol you’re a foolish supporter of Defunct TuPF crimminals and very soon we will squeeze your b…s
      Vote wisely vote for HH7 in 2026/31

    • You never voted for him and will never do that because he’s not your favourite. Your favourite is your a criminal lazy family that possibly provide free handout for you to enjoy. Only hard patriotic zambians are supporters of HH.

  3. The nonsense is you together with your PF criminals. You are gone forever no matter what you say.
    In 2026 it’s HH again till 2031. Mwalalila you criminals!

  4. Please dont release her, shes just a problem. She is just busy making noise and confusion in Lusaka without doing a development in Nakonde. What a wasted outdated polity. The should be applied on her behaviour

  5. Zambia is a country of Laws and not of President Dr HH!
    If people think freedom means doing anything or saying anything without due regard for the Law, this is how they will end up!
    It’s even long overdue for Nawakwi!
    Let her now take this opportunity to substantiate her many wild claims in court!

  6. Hakainde was in Luanshya today… I Watched as his motorcade passed through the Central Business District, waving at people, and no one, absolutely no one was waving back. And the UPND thugs and Tribal Zealots were hiding…no UPND regalia in town. Just saw 2 Tonga women… speaking Tonga , in UPND attire. The whole town, just 2 women in UPND regalia.
    How Hakainde has fallen from grace!
    And so Nawakwi is detained! Munir Zulu..Jean Chisenga too…for what ba Hakainde?
    It’s things fall apart!
