    • Easier said than done. If it where campaign bicycles; this would have been achieved before year end.
      Where is the Zambian Government if its Ministers just refers to a PF government at International Conferences? International delegates must have been scratching their heads to try and guess where the PF country is located in Africa.

  1. This a good and progressive move. But it calls for more & concerted effort especially in most schools.
