  3. Prof Luo is right.
    Key to Sustainable Industrialization, include: Clear Policy; Political Leadership and Drive; Steel Industries; Skilled and Innovative Manpower.
    The Government of the Republic of Zambia, should start creating a pool of highly qualified and skilled manpower.
    Western Industrialized countries have the technology, needed in Zambia.

  4. Mama Nkandu is right. Only that we are too late and wasteful. But they say better late than never. We need technicians, engineers and scientists to come and run our nuclear energy plants and nuclear medicine.

    But what do we do with JETS projects minister? National Council for Scientific Research or whatever we call it is on deep slumber. ZASTI is dead…CBU??? Nomba big question, where will they work? Zesco, UTHs, mines, Zamtel, MTN….where else, Kafue steel… But these are inadequate prof. Let’s start building TVs, laptops, phones, watches, drones.

    And to cap it all, Harry Potter graduates to bewitch….who…??? Natural Science twafola nomba kutampa fye Spiritual and Satanic Science….in a Christian Nation. God forbidden oh
