  1. Can’t I just wake up one day to read a message of hope for Zambia such as 100 retirees paid in Zambia, not in the areas where by elections are due. I am in tears right now for a country I call my own, a failed state. Why me?

  2. Mr President, honestly is there hope. Give us the inside story. You have the instruments of power you must know if there is hope for Zambia or not. I know a doctor needs to reassure even a dying patient but on this occasion give use the bitter pill because we can already smell the coffee.
