  1. I think this was a healthy debate overall. My take is That HH broke the law, he should stand trial for his offence, like any other Zambian would. The only thing I strongly disliked about this debate was the comments from Vanguard Africa. Foreign entities must stay OUT of our politics. We can solve our problems on our own!

  2. Every African "democracy" is constantly under threat by definition. History teaches us that you can't have a stable democracy when the citizenry has an average IQ of less than 90. That's why it was a fools errand for George W. Bush to attempt to bring democracy to the Middle East. Those low IQ inbreds are better off with a strong armed authoritarian regime or else to be governed by colonial masters.
