    • @ISIS.zm dont worry HK will only take 4 computers, 2 laptops and 4 printers! 1 laptop to be used by HK, wife and children! When will they use them? They look rich when you display all in the house! What about others? SHHHHH……..

  1. Why are you donating to Lazy Lungu who wastes $100k like its loose charge…this is bum who charters a private jet for 7 days.No shame at all!!

  2. How I wish this donation went to schools to promote computer subjects! Atlas some schools could have benefitted. Are the donors not even surprised that we have misplaced priorities?

  3. Thank you South Korea. but what a shame that a country which had the same economy like Zambia is a powerhouse and now is reduced to handouts.
