  1. You mean using kaloba which our children will suffer to pay back in the near future

  2. Something doesn’t sound good here. What’s so special about this contractor that other contractors don’t have to be paid in full. Is he a local contractor or Avic and which committee gave a go ahead and instructed by who? Come on Zambians let’s fight this trend of contracts being given without following the right channel.

  3. Caution ! Watch out that quality control is not compromised here. Payment I believe should be done upon satisfactory work is done is done. To say the least, that doesn’t sound transparent.
