    • Hello Ernest:

      You are one of the smartest people the Zambian Enterprise has ever produced and thank you for making us proud … just make sure the profits from there are also used to boost CEC’s capacity at home.

      Kudos to you and thanks once more for all the great things you do for Mother Zambia.

      You are the best,

  2. This is a Very good attitude within Africa. Africa needs to rely on African skills to solve african problems. Botswana recruited plenty of Zambian school teachers to lay the foundation for good education in that country. Nigeria knows it has problems that only a fellow african can have the experience to solve. Its time we started having confidence in ourselves

  6. CONGRATULATIONS ENERST. You are brilliant and fly your family flag. It is your family and people of the highest intellectual capacity that will understand your move to serve other nations instead of wasting time in your dilapidated self centred zambia. It is sad to see yet again and again zambians doing extremely well in other countries.
    You were called names, nearly framed of abuse of office. Why why mother zambia….Stop it. If not the country will remain one of the poorest. Pull up your socks zambia.
