BLACK MAMBA SIGHTINGS SPARKS FEAR IN THE COMMUNITY OF ZAMBIA

Published

on

By

Several reports have surfaced regarding a black mamba (known locally as Mbobo/ Nkhomi) allegedly inhabiting the vicinity of the mortuary. Numerous sightings have occurred in this area, causing residents to express concern for their safety. The serpent is reportedly at least 1.5 meters in length and has been spotted in the yards of neighboring residences as well as along the roadside. Some residents have taken proactive measures to clear their yards thoroughly.

Unfortunately, the absence of snake catchers in Lundazi leaves the community reliant on hope for the snake to relocate, although its apparent affinity for the environment suggests this may not happen anytime soon.

What is the black mamba?
Black mambas are fast, nervous, lethally venomous, and when threatened, highly aggressive. They have been blamed for numerous human deaths, and African myths exaggerate their capabilities to legendary proportions. For these reasons, the black mamba is widely considered the world’s deadliest snake.

Range and characteristics
Black mambas live in the savannas and rocky hills of southern and eastern Africa. They are Africa’s longest venomous snake, reaching up to 14 feet in length, although 8.2 feet is more the average. They are also among the fastest snakes in the world, slithering at speeds of up to 12.5 miles per hour.

They get their name not from their skin color, which tends to be olive to gray, but rather from the blue-black color of the inside of their mouth, which they display when threatened.

Behavior
Black mambas are shy and will almost always seek to escape when confronted. However, when cornered, these snakes will raise their heads, sometimes with a third of their body off the ground, spread their cobra-like neck-flap, open their black mouths, and hiss. If an attacker persists, the mamba will strike not once, but repeatedly, injecting large amounts of potent neuro- and cardiotoxin with each strike.
Venom
Before the advent of black mamba antivenin, a bite from this fearsome serpent was almost always fatal, usually within about 20 minutes. Unfortunately, antivenin is still not widely available in the rural parts of the mamba’s range, and mamba-related deaths remain frequent.

Encroachment on the black mamba’s territory is not only putting pressure on the species but contributes to more potentially dangerous human contact with these snakes.

Of a sudden, Pastor Dr. Paul Enenche is a fake man of God because of a single mistake according to some keyboard warriors who have been waiting for privilege – Sen Onono

Of a sudden, Pastor Dr. Paul Enenche is a fake man of God because of a single mistake according to some keyboard warriors who have been waiting for privilege.

Well, all I can say is; This man right here have his own blame likewise the woman. Why? If you watch the video and you are the type that judge base on people’s command of English, You wouldn’t need a pre-convincing argument that the said “Woman Lawyer” is telling lies. The man of God couldn’t agree less than to embarrass her which was totally wrong but quite understandable considering the fact he acted on emotions! The testimony teams aren’t left out as well because courtesy demand interviews should be given before anyone comes to the alter to give any testimony!
while we all await Pastor’s apology, let me pen this down.

Once you become a public figure, You become a television everyone focuses on why? Because many await the day you will flop so they can use it as a yardstick to pour out their mind!

Nigerians expect public figures to be hundred percent perfect not knowing they (public figures) are humans too.

I read some comments and I can’t help but shake my head.

Nigerians?
Trust me, Few persons have the woman at heart because all I can say is, Most of the verbal outbursts on the man of God are uncalled for.

Why are Nigerians so quick to label others “Bad” and as well, Forget the days they were once a good person?

Why don’t we give people second chance?

Well, as said earlier on, Pastor should tender apology to the woman better still, He should do “MORE” for the sake of his reputation and those who are his true fans. If Pastor fail to apologize, some gullible fans would toil with his children’s mental health!

Pastor Sir, I won’t join others to crucify you because it’s okay to make mistake.
Sir, you are not God because he alone is perfect!

Your actions towards her is the reason why she’s trending on the internet today. (Still,not a good one for your brand and her mental health).

Please, Do the needful (Apology) and I would join your ‘True fans’ to celebrate you.

Regards.

Lungu, the Next Lying President Of Zambia in View: A Questionable Token of Appreciation

Published

on

By

In a recent revelation that has sent shockwaves across Zambia, former President Edgar Lungu reportedly disclosed to his legal representatives from Makebi and Company that the hefty sum of 24 million dollars from KCM (Konkola Copper Mines) was merely a “token of appreciation.” This statement has ignited widespread skepticism and further eroded trust in Lungu’s leadership capabilities.

Lungu’s assertion raises numerous red flags, particularly in light of the ongoing investigations into corruption and mismanagement during his presidency. The timing of this disclosure, coupled with the staggering amount involved, casts doubt on the true nature of the transaction between Lungu and KCM.

The notion that 24 million dollars could be categorized as a mere token of appreciation is not only absurd but also insulting to the intelligence of the Zambian people. Such a significant sum of money cannot be dismissed as a gesture of gratitude without raising serious questions about the motives behind it.

Moreover, Lungu’s track record for honesty and transparency is far from impeccable. Throughout his tenure, he faced allegations of corruption, election rigging, and human rights abuses, tarnishing Zambia’s reputation on the international stage.

This latest revelation only adds fuel to the fire of distrust surrounding Lungu’s leadership. If indeed the 24 million dollars from KCM was a token of appreciation, what favors were granted in return? What other undisclosed dealings occurred during Lungu’s presidency?

As Zambia prepares for its next presidential election, the electorate must scrutinize candidates’ integrity and commitment to accountability. Lungu’s admission serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of entrusting power to individuals with questionable ethical standards.

The future of Zambia hinges on its ability to elect leaders who prioritize the interests of the nation above personal gain. Lungu’s legacy as the next lying president in view serves as a cautionary tale, urging citizens to demand transparency, accountability, and integrity from those vying for public office.
