  1. ya so??its like GRZ wants to be given credit for things they are supposed to do.actually they aint only supposed to grade the road but put tar on it.

  2. They built a house for K30m? Hope it lasts into the next rainy season. And if that picture is anything to go by, it will be a miracle that these schools survive the next 5 years

  3. I thank the donor 4 the k30m contribution to enable build a teacher’s house. However a big wonder is the standard of house built from the said donation. I was enquiring from one officer at ministry of education PS about the cost of a standard staff house and am informed the house cost k80-100m !

  4. I think the Zambian goverment is the worst ever in southern Africa! This is so shameful to ask someone for money to support these projects, when RB just need to cancell 2 trips to facilitate these constructions! I ve given up and I am no PF / UPND supporter, but just a concerned citizen! I have never heard so much rubbish! Ba Zambia twasebanya!!!
