  1. Zambians can grow all these crops on their own without having to bring foreigners to do their work! As a developing country, it is our own task to do so! We must educate our kids to take charge of this country and its resources instead of the current shot-cuts to a brickwall since Zambians own nothing in real sense due to having an ignorant leadership in office
