  1. How many people are you going to detain. You are just irritating the people of Zambia. They will not stop talking. You are just waisting your time , and bringing more division, tension and hate in the country! In the end you are laughing stock!

  2. Zambia is a country of Laws!
    You abuse your freedom to misbehave and break the Law, the long arm of the Law will do it’s work!
    At the rate people have been misbehaving and kudelela asogoleli, this is the end result!
    Anione anione anankala pansimbi yamoto!
    We need Civility in politics!
    Those proposing war in a peaceful nation should be stripped of citizenship and treat them like terrorists!
    Bye elections are loading!

    • There is zero equivalence between booing and issuing inflammatory and seditious comments. Any rational and impartial individual wouldn’t be comfortable with Hon. Mabonga and Zulu’s comments. Those were fighting words meant to alarm, incite and divide. Enough is enough, we shouldn’t allow such for the sake of political expediency

  3. All this happening is as a result of too much
    Freedom given by new dawn from the time
    They took over power to opposition.

  4. JJ Banda has luckily been found alive and unharmed. Had he been killed or seriously harmed, Maureen Mabonga and her ilk would have succeeded in persuading people to believe their false narrative. This makes the case against Maureen Mabonga quite strong. According to her own recorded speech on tv, Tonga people have utmost hatred for people from Eastern Province and all the Bembas and this is what led to JJ Banda being abducted by Tongas. She has to prove in court that it’s Tongas who abducted JJ Banda to win her freedom.

  5. What has jj banda dispearance got to do with whst she is saying?
    Has she got evidence it’s tongas??
    You politician’s are just tribalists by nature!!

  6. I keep saying the calibre of MPs, specifically PF MPs in the current parliament leaves much to be desired. Their indiscipline and lack of social intelligence is shocking. And to think they are charged with the responsibility of enacting laws! Such lawless characters.

    This lady must face the full force of the law. We are tired of politicians’ divisive language and their selfishness. They want to use us to preserve their privileged lifestyles mostly achieved at our expense.
