  1. Why can’t we get rid of ALL HIV/AIDS persons in Zambia so that we can save money we send on drugs on other more important national projects like increasing budget allocation to university students on bursary schemes and cattle re-stocking in Southern province??? We can start poisoning them one by one till the last person is eliminated. I think, this would go along way.
