They have further charged that management has been issuing threats to lectures that demand their pay and those that speak out on the poor conditions of service. “We have suffered enough and we cannot go like this. How do they expect us to survive when we are not being paid. This management has been asking us to report for work but the question has been how do we move every day when we have not been paid for the past six months,†one of the lecturers said. The lectures said most of them were living in rented houses and it was becoming difficult for them to pay rentals due to delayed salaries. “We as calling on the relevant authorities to come and assist us because this is inconveniencing, we have some of our colleagues who have had to be evicted from homes because of not paying rentals and this management does not care about all these issues,†another lecturer said.

Black Panther bit-part-actor Patrick Shumba has owned up to his porn acts that have taken social media by storm in the last 48 hours. Shumba drew admiration across the country for his bit-part into the famed Black Panther fell off from grace just as rapidly as he had risen when images and video footage of his indiscretions that also bared his gay side. The United States of America based actor has apologized for his acts through a statement stressing that the emerging files of his porn acts were from a long time ago. OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM MR. PATRICK SHUMBA Recently there was an unsavory video released of Shumba Mutukwa to the Zambian public from his 20s. He was a young man that made a choice not all may agree with however, it does not change who Mr. Mutukwa is as a man, philanthropist, or actor. Mr. Mutukwa has grown and learned from his past as we all do. Although he recognizes his errored decision he does own up to the immature behavior in his past. There is nothing more he can do but continue to use his celebrity to better the country of Zambia. He temporarily closed down his social media accounts only because he knows there are children engaged with him that he knows should not witness the video. He asks that people refrain from sharing the video on social media to look out for young eyes. Again, he was a young man himself and is not the same youthful person he was. His life is dedicated to bettering others and what he did in his past has nothing to do with what he’s accomplished and will continue to accomplish. He has strong pride in Zambia and works hard to make the country and its citizens proud. That is his path and he has proven well beyond a doubt that who he is today and will be in the future. The man you’ve grown to love, not the youth that makes immature decisions. For any questions or statements on this matter please contact Mr. Mutuka’s publicist Larissa Long. “Thank you for understanding we all make mistakes but know I will continue to bring pride to Zambia. My growth continues in everything I do from errors to successes.†-Shumba The post Black Panther Actor Owns Up to Porn Acts…Tenders Emotional Apology appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Zambia Is The Only Country Where Rivers Are Full But People Don’t Have Water The water crisis in most parts of Lusaka has irked MMD youths who have described the situation as an embarrassment to a country with abundant fresh water bodies. In a statement issued to the media, MMD National Youth Treasurer Geoffrey Mulenga lamented that it was saddening citizens where being subjected to searching for water when rivers and lakes are full. He said the situation was regrettable and a serious indictment on President Edgar Lungu who was voted on the assumption that he identified with the poor in the country. “We want to express our disappointment with the water crisis in Lusaka. Its really sad, when you move around the country the rivers and lakes are full but people have no drinking water surely. “This situation is highly regrettable and is a serious indictment on the President who is identified with the poor. The people charged with the responsibility to help our President to deliver to the people are betraying him. These people are systematically burying the humility of our President who was largely voted by these same people they are denying water,” he said. Mulenga observed the Ministries responsible should be disbanded because not serving their intended purpose. “Its been over a week now, there has not been any government official to address the residents in the affected areas. The Ministries responsible must be disbanded because its not serving any purpose. “People in the compounds don’t watch TV or buy newspapers, what should have happened is that the Members Of Parliament, Councillors, Ward Officials, Lusaka Water officers should have gone on the ground to communicate to the people. In South Africa currently there is a national water crisis which has been declared a national disaster. South Africans are rationing water but unfortunately here we are playing with water. With this abundant easy to consume water in all the provinces we are surely grappling to manage our water resources,” he said. He wondered what the country would become if the crisis the magnitude of the one being faced in South Africa was to it the country. “This amount of recklessness and incompetence by the Sewerage Companies dotted across the country is reason why we had a cholera outbreak. This negligence must be stamped out. What would become of our country if we faced a similar situation as the one being faced in South Africa? Even when people have water, the water is not safe for drinking or its contaminated. “As politicians we cannot afford to be “all talk and no action,” and we want to urge the President to move in on some of these people sabotaging his delivery of services to the people. Because ultimately its the President’s image they are denting, not that of Councillor or MP or the Minister responsible. People don’t even know the name of the manager of the Water And Sewerage Companies, its the name of the President they are disparaging day and night,” he said.
