  1. At whose cost is this trip? Hope my tax paying poor relatives in kabwata are not taking on this burden.

  2. The New Minister of Health who is not answerable to anyone. She goes to all these health conferences but the only relationship she has with govt is been the wife to the President. Can she tell us the impact her last sojourn abroad had on the health of Zambians? Zambia is too poor to fund both her constant holidays and the new hospital at Plot one.

  3. Under the able leadership of MMD TBA training was abolished because they added no value to the health system.Kaseba please ,instead of asking for more alangizi to trained ask your ailing husband to stop wasting GRZ on costly byerections and channel that money into buying equipment like fetal eletronic monitors and drugs in hospitals and clinics.You also must stop these PR trips to USA.There is nothing you are doing to improve the welfare of mothers in Zambia.Whatever the occasion,those Yanks can never allow you to register and practice medicine in USA because your Ridgeway training is too inferior no wonder high maternal and child death in Zambia.Please stay home and operate the dialysis machine.You are wasting the tax payers’ money.This is too much mweeeeeeeeeeeee.

  4. Let Christine expand her mind, she compliments Sata.

    Have a wonderful stay in New Orleans Chrisy!!

  5. Only mad people like hh and Nevers Mumba can listen to u lunatics. All that u have written nothing makes sense. Jearous from u demons.

  6. ACOG stands for: American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; NOT what you have written Lusaka Times!! Do you even know what “Collage” means, for heaven,s sake! It is also sometimes referred to as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; but NEVER “COLLAGE”.
