  1. Lying to the people about Lungu delivering when the project is funded by others. Those poor people think it’s lungu building them a hospital kanshi it’s good wishers who are tired of us being so behind. So what happens to the money these people collect if everything is either a loan or grant from others. We have to learn to do these things on our own instead on being so dependent on others.


  2. For all intents and purposes it’s a clinic. It is either a full grown duck or a duckling. A duckling cannot be a mini-duck.
