    • For free??? Who paid air tickets, who is paying hotel expenses, you know how expensive chapati is?
      Ati free….

  1. “10 Indian Docs jets into the Zambia “…who writes your mediocre headlines LT ? Stop employing high school dropouts as journalists.

  2. Will they be screened by the HPCZ for competency before they are allowed to see patients? Some of these may not pass the assessment, India is notorious for forged qualifications. The next thing we might that those quacks have somehow found their way to Fairview Hospital as employees

  3. This is beyond ridiculous. This is an example of bad aid /charity.Those Indian doctors shouldchave be invited to train Zambian doctors in specialist areas of medicine. For example heart surgery etc, intensive care etc. Invite specialist in medicine to train Zambian doctors so that patients (who can afford )do travel abroad and those you cannot afford overseas treatment are left to die. There are several Zambian specialist who are using their skills and knowledge to save lives of foreigners when their country men are suffering or dying. How does the government recruit a foreign surgeon and pay he/she well instead of bringing back a Zambian from overseas?

  4. 10 Indian doctors (it’s ten of them so its plural ) jet- not JETS
    From:
    This is Jelita this is Mulenga. Mulenga and Jelita are- not IS- walking
