And Isoka DC has praised the Army for responding urgently in curbing illegal Mukula activities in the district.

Mr. Mutambo said Isoka was the core centre of the destructive harvesting of Mukula trees.

He said the endangered tree species could have been wiped out of the land in the area had it not been for the deployment of the army.

Thank you once again for coming to our rescue during this dangerous cholera period. Every father is a hero to his child, as the saying goes, but you you are heroes to the entire nation. We salute !!!

  4. So the army has a voice and speak! Or do they only use it to endorse Lungu and team’s stealing using ZAFFICO? Better to concentrate on cleaning city roads and markets if you ask me … Cry the beloved country!

  5. Some of the comments are very disparaging against the army. It should have been council police and cleaners to clean the filth from the streets not our gallant army personal. We have a very disciplined army and I salute them.
