  1. From the face of it, it sounds like a a vague MOU. You should have attached a copy for us to read. An MOU should spell out specific objectives of the partnership, the obligations of each party and the benefits of each party gets from the partnership

  2. Progress at last, Progress at last…Thank God Almighty, there is progress at last.
    Let the Chinese sell vegetables, we will assist in the health sector

  3. I hope this will stop politicians from going to India & Milpark clinic. but is shameful to see the standard of the UTH equipment in the photo. But knowing Zed politicians, they’ll still make excuses to go to India or RSA. Let the incoming govt put in legislation which will discourage politicians going outside Zambia for treatment at 100% GRZ funding.

  4. #Dilip Patel, you Patels don’t like to come to our level to sell in the markets. leave the Chinese alone. They’re our friends. Without them, there would be no Tanzara, no Gabon Disaster (sorry, Heroes stadium, no highways and other big infrastructure and no made in China products. Indian (not like KCM) help is welcome and is long overdue. So leave the Chinese alone because even God knows that the Chinese are our all weather friends.

  5. In the entire length of this story these reporters dont tell us WHERE this BLK hospital is situated. Where is this NCR? Ba journalist bamu Zambia!
