  2. To dismantle debt. Just tell Edgar to pay from what he has stolen. By the way you Ministers owe Zambians a lot of money, where is it? That money should be going in UNZA and other universities and the health sector but obviously you don’t care. You think that debts can just be dismantled. What the hell is that? Is that Professorial language?

  3. This man will never cease to amaze me. Bragging of 11 storey ridgeway nonsense and yet failing to settle bills and salaries at the universities. This is real sh!thole country where we have ministers with scattered brains masquerading as professors. They fail to solve issues now and want to solve future issues – issues that are still hypothetical.
    What a disaster!

  4. So if it is eleven stories it will be a good institution? What has its height got to do with its being set up? Why not tell us what it will be intended to contribute to society. Why not tell us about the research that will come out of this place? You just focus on 11 storeys? Meaning Zambians should just look out for an 11 storey buidling at Ridgeway. Our priorities are what gives birth to the kind of leadership we have.

  5. So with all the challenges our three public universities are facing, some one finds it prudent to construct two brand new universities in Chisali?
