  1. What a waste of fire equipment… Put the fire guys on WhatsApp (with 30Ngwee float) so they can see dropped locations.

    • Sharon you’re really a terrible person, with your childish comments, and a sick obsession with UPND. Is UPND running Zambia today? Can’t you be serious even for a second? What a foooool.

    • Laughing Gas. I wish they found HH at the wrong school and watered him down. He may be the cause of these fires! See how his supporters have red eyes daily!

  2. Instead of wasting US $1000,000 on a firetruck that proved to be useless when it actually mattered, you were better of improving fire safety and fire prevention systems such as automated sprinklers in 100 such schools.
