    How on earth could someone dwell and find zambia habitable for their rest of life?
    The lifespan of people doesn’t lie, the poor health conditions, the food where people eat insects and roots together with mashed maize and the scotching heat that comes from a country landlocked says it all.

    I look outside my office and look at these pictures and one word spring to mind ‘Suffering’ and trust me when I am saying this because i have experiences the life of both worlds and although l love visiting zambia, it is suicide to plan living there for the rest of my life.
    God help Zambia. How sad, I am trembling with embarrassment as i type this

    Thanks

    Zambia is for the rich, if you are poor just lay down and die thats the only solution thats there for you. Ministers pretending to work, taking tours and fake inspections. Education minister you can’t even be ashamed. A poor child laying on the ground like that? You Zambians never learn, why you voted PF into power only God knows.

      Picture 20,27 and 28 clearly paints that situation that zambia is in.The govt both past and present have failed the people of zambia.The billions of kwachas that MMD and PF has wasted on the useless constitution review commission can be channeled to bring health development in these places.These two parties have spent billions of kwachas on ink,paper and microphone and nothing has comeout that is meaningful and progressive whilst people are dying sleeping on the floor with no healthcare.The local members of parliament receive billions in CDF and people locally do not even have both access and available to minimal healthcare.This is a shame and a failure of common sense.

    I Agree with the Prince, Robinson Zulu is a thief , he stole from DBZ and ran away to the UK and stayed until everything was forgotten, Zambians have a short memory , then stole from people. The donating is not genuine, why call a press inference just because you have given peanuts? I would respect him if he had done in annomously, the bible says when you give something with your right hand do not met your left hand know about it. He is a show off. Wait for for your turn to answer corruption charges regarding the land you took From NAPSA.

    Sorry I meant press conference! Mr Robinson Zulu, if you do good deeds, do not show off or expect people to praise and worship you, do it genuinely with no ulterior motive. Posting a picture with journalists on LT about your donations is pathetic. Please donate more money for the dual carriage from Lusaka to Ndola that would be very helpful and would prevent accidents.
