    • Isaac Newton Its a reflection of the fallen education standards in the country:
      “Mwinilunga man convicted for lying of driving a truck owned by Police I.G Kanganja” That cant be a headline
      Perhaps “Mwinilunga man falsely claimed truck he drove was owned by Police I.G Kanganja”

  1. Upnd will stop at nothing. This chap could have committed untold misery which was going to be blamed on Kanganja. He should be imprisoned.

  2. PLEASE LET THE INNOCENT MAN BE FREE, SOMEONE WROTE ON THE HINO TRUCK AS HE WAS AT A BAR IN MPIKA I WAS THEIR AND THE DRIVER DID NOT KNOW, ONLY WHEN HE REACHED PA CHECKPOINT BUT HAD NO OPTION BUT PROVIDE AN ANSWER
