President Edgar Lungu has given Secretary to Cabinet Roland Msiska, seven days, to take decisive action towards curbing all malpractices in the administration of the Social Cash Transfer (SCT) programme.

President Lungu has further directed Minister of Community Development Emerine Kabanshi and her Finance counterpart Margaret Mwanakatwe to continue their engagements with donors.

He has further directed them to assure donors of the remedial measures that government has been undertaking since the reported cases of misuse, earlier this year.

The President has further regretted that that the comprehensive report on the administration of the social cash transfer funds ordered four months ago, was only availed to him on September 14, 2018.

Reports indicate that a total of K43,819,164 accounts as an outstanding balance owing to beneficiaries in Luapula, Northern, North-western, Muchinga, Western and Copperbelt provinces respectively.

The Head of State has since directed that all remaining actions and remedial measures be availed to him within one week.

“I want a speedy and decisive investigation into the matter, to establish the status of the disbursement of the Social Cash Transfer programme,” the President said.

“Wherever cases of abuse requiring criminal investigations may arise, such cases must be reported to relevant agencies and where administrative action is required, I want to see prompt action taken,” he added.

President Lungu has also raised concern over the reported breach in the administering of the Social Cash Transfer, saying the perpetrators are disadvantaging the vulnerable who society who depend on this vital safety net.

And President Lungu says he is as frustrated as the donors funding the programme because the main aim of the project is to ensure that the plight of the vulnerable in society is met.

On September 5th, 2018, the Secretary to Cabinet led a government delegation to a meeting with donors, where measures being undertaken to address the problems encountered in the SCT programme were shared.

This is contained in a statement made available to ZANIS by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda.

  1. Good job Mr. President! Wise and a great president! You have turned around this country and soon we will be very close to many of the developed countries and that is why CHILDISH and his supporters Ha- panicking! God bless you with more wisdom! HH will NEVER be like you nor will he EVER be a president! He is a REJECT in Zambia!

    • There is too much stone age thinking here so apparently after all the denials Lungu and the PF were aware of this scum 4 months ago … He didn’t even raise the issue in his Parley address in his usual PF fashion he showed distaste at people raising these issues his s1lly mouth in the PF went ahead to even condemn the Africa Confidential as being anti Zambia unfortunately even the Cadre Habazoka at Econonic s Association went after the Africa Confidential what a shame for a professional. Edgar should take responsibility for creating a corrupt environment in this country he is the corruption and theft itself. If he was aware he should have stopped his cadres from issuing stupid statements lying go citizens

    • “…President has further regretted that that the comprehensive report on the administration of the social cash transfer funds ordered four months ago, was only availed to him on September 14, 2018”

      Speaks for itself, and no further comments necessary. Is ECL really informed of what is going on?

      No wonder he doesn’t see corruption since “comprehensive corruption Reports ordered a year ago” have still NOT been AVAILED to him. SAD. The GRZ is dysfunctional, as it works on DIRECTIVES or on Bowman visits

    • @General Kanyenye the report probably reached him on Friday 14th after the initial Africa Confidential report was released on social media. Dora misled the entire nation in that press briefing.

      Kanyenye why are you happy that funding to the rural poor has been cut? Your heartless nature in UPND really amazes me. So you think this is an opportunity for your ‘god’ (HH) to enter Plot 1

    • @Sharon, you are proofing people that life of trans-gender has bad side-effects, yours is HH hallucination.
      Just help your thugs to recover stolen money.

    • Where have you been all along to take action now when the British government have frozen aid to Zambia .You are sleeping on the wheel .There ia more to the corruption in Zambia which is run by Tuma thieving PR directors .

    • Where have you been all along to take action now ? Why now when the British government have frozen aid to Zambia .You are sleeping on the wheel bwana Kateka .There is more to the corruption in Zambia which is run by Tuma thieving PR directors .

    • Next time be proactive not reactive to matters of the heart. My President claims, he was in the dark. How? It’s AC 1 – Zambia Govt 0 on this one. While Siliya is awaiting for a more formal confirmation of a UKaid freeze, a tweeter feed has gone wild. Siliya should be embarrassed with these tweeter kids from the west. Noisy UPNDEADS are so excited while the ACC is waiting for an order to indict. Wake up ACC and act on the Auditor’s Report.
      Double h will soon seize the opportunity by staying he told you so.

    • Did it have to take the donors to request an audit and stop funding for Lungu to react? Mr. President please extend these measures to state house and all government institutions to instill full donor confidence. Additionally these social transfer chaps are just the small fish. We want the big fish

    • BUT you said your own.

      ================================
      President Edgar Lungu says persons responsible for financial irregularities cited in the latest Auditor General’s report should be taken to task.
      The President says he expects investigative agencies such as the Anti-Corruption to do their job in relation to the findings in the Auditor General Report on accounts for 2016.
      President Lungu says those found wanting should be investigated and brought to book.

    • LAST YEAR ALONE: STORIES OF THE AG REPORTS ON LT.

    • Its too let bwana Lungu.When people talk about your govt over corruption, sometimes take time and reflect on it and not always denying and politicking.Look where your politicking has taken you. Not everyone who criticise hate you ba PF. we just want to clean the country.Nomba Naikaba.am watching

    • Thieves have built mansions out of this money. Therefore, ensure whatever has been built using stolen funds is reposed by the State without compensation.

    • Sharon twala amatako uko even your ECL Has admitted to Laz1ness he forgot about this report until the shyt hit the fan….his cadres at Zampost bought expensive vehicles not only at the expense of the poor recipients but also at the cost of poor employees at Zampost who have not been paid for months. Such n0nsense of bringing in the your Hazaluza Hagain halabaloo in such important issues is abhorrent and shows a mindless kunkubiti who doesn’t seem to appreciate purpose of their creation or existence.

    • It had to take UK to withdraw donations for Ba Lungu to issue WEAK orders…
      When we call to probe abena Kaizer etc, nothing happens. Ba Miti was ordered by courts to go face law, he holed up at state house. What if the Social Cash Transfer leads to state house, what will happen??
      Even these China thing, so many countries may pull out.
      We are not here to discredit your PF government, we are here to help you get from mud from cow dung, be patriotic.

    • Integrity start with being elected in free and fair polls. But when you rig, you will have to spend sleepless nights figuring out how best to rig the next rather than focus on improve the standards of living of millions ordinary flocks. Unfortunately the economy can’t rigged. Now you can’t even enjoy your loot which keeps on piling up like its coming from a popcorn machine. To make matters worse you have destroyed all institutions that would have helped stick to the rule of law.

  2. Hahahaha, this guy is a lunatic. He wants to show that he is working but he is investigating K100.00 and leave those who stole $42 million in firetruck fiasco and those building mansions in eSwatini. He thinks we don’t know his arrangement with Scania Trucks. Criminal number 1.

  3. What a stupid monkey president! He has been told about corruption everywhere in his administration but the idyot never listens. He wakes up one day and starts ordering people to work on one or 2 things to please the donors yet he is the one that enjoys and even encourages sloppiness at work because it suits and benefits him.
    Look at his judges, it takes 5 years to dispose an election case like that of Nkandu Luo and Margaret Katwekatwe – what nonsense is this?
    The real problem and the author corruption is him and he knows it! He has been stealing and his associates have been stealing like there is no tomorrow. Those orders mean nothing, donors will never trust him in his entire life. He talks of Ubomba mwibala and you think anyone with a sound mind would ever trust him again? Ther…

    • THEY PRETEND THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING WHEN THEY ARE FULLY AWARE. THEY KNOW THEY HAVE DIRECTED DONOR FUNDING TO PAY GOVERNMENT WAGES. THEY NOW PRETEND TO BE INNOCENT – AND THE INNOCENT WILL PROBABLY PAY FOR THOSE IN CHARGES SINS AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA !

    • The nine Supreme Court Judges this morning could not hide their anger as they literally abused and insulted lawyers representing anti corruption activist Gregory Chifire in a matter he stands accused of Contempt against the same Judges, who are the complainant, prosecutor, witness and Judge in the matter.
      The angry Deputy Chief Justice Marvin Mwanamwamba , who called the three defence Lawyers “fools” said the court would not entertain any further adjournment as they were ready to proceed to handdown judgement against Chifire.
      The three Lawyers representing Chifire are Landilani Banda, McQueen Zaza and a Ms. Kumwenda.
      The three lawyers tried to seek clarification on the procedure that was used on the matter but this angered the Judges who accused the three Lawyers of lecturing to them…

    • The UPND minions will now be laughing at us for the rest of the year with the “I told you so” syndrome.
      Now I begin to wonder just how much of the Africa Confidential report is true.
      Dora was busy giving us a media briefing refuting the entire report. Is she going to be fired? Has the ZamPost director been relieved of his duties? So when is Amos finally going to disclose that we have sold ZESCO and lost all sovereignty.
      This is bad for our image. Look at the UPND quacks laughing at us above like clowns at the circus

    • Hehehehehe……that’s when you are waking up ??

      Hehehehehe , we told you, lungu and his GRZ are all corrupt…

      Hehehehehe….

    • Load that skull with something sensible, for once, and I commend you for this.
      The core of you knows that things are not okay, but you keep pretending and defending your PF just because of your hatred for HH and UPND.
      We are always telling you to take off that “PF hat”, its all about you the ordinary Zambian and your children. A normal person simply doesn’t get it how vehemently you defend your PF.
      It’s indeed a disease, no wonder Mushota has the guts to say, blacks are inferior to her muzungu, it’s because of the thickheadedness displayed here.
      Good, you are coming to your senses.

    • Empty tins make the loudest noise…when these thieves leave only then you see what these dingbats borrowed in your children’s names!!

  4. Now when I the chief strategist of upnd tells you all that pf is corrupt and a bunch of thieves ati ny0 ny0 ny0. Can we hear from mbanje khakis and his fellow rats. Why is it very quiet in here. By the way who will investigate lungu himself? Zambia is now an embarrasment thanks to illiterates being in power. When a rich man like hh stands up for you ati he is an angry bitter man. Hope u enjoy suffering u dogs

    • NÉZ you chap after the investigations arrests will be made. Funding from the donors will resume and this whole episode will be forgotten by 2021. Our people will vote for us again.
      The people who vote don’t like your proud, elitist ‘rich man’ attitude. Your small Kaponya ‘god’ cannot ascend to power with such an attitude. 50% + 1 Zambians hate his stinking guts.
      UPND United Po Nio-nio Dogs.

    • Why you asking for him?please we await your response to the article . You normally have a lot of matuvl to say to support your fellow thieving thugs.. lelo ati spaka ? Go and eff yourself you useless twat. Whilst your own relatives are suffering and sleeping with hunger you are here supporting thieves all because bakudyesamo change kiki

  5. ZAMPOST koseni. Mune McPhason Chanda tendeka ukupepesha. Its this guy behind the troubled cash transfer. Cash transfer was run by ZAMPOST and deviated to something else. Mcphason thought he was smart. Here comes your time of reckoning. Fire him and send him to prison. How do you enrich yourself at the expense of the poor? Answer me Mcphason.

  6. It’s amazing that some PF supporters don’t see anything wrong with all the wrongs taking place under this government. They still want to blame HH for their government’s failures and crimes. What a shame! We really need to change this government and lock up all the crooks, including their blind supporters.

  7. How can one steal money meant for the poorest of the poor in our society? Their means of livelihood have been cut out and left at the mercy of harch economic conditions. Then they are called for prayers in the next few days! The tears of the poor never falls to the ground, they fall in the palms of their creator.

    • ZAMBIAN’S NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE!!
      You are asking “How can one steal funds meant for the vulnerable”??
      What a question! The current Zambian President -(Jonathan Pombe Corruption Chakolwa Lungu), STOLE FROM A WIDOW, someone who was very vulnerable, as She had just lost her husband, & had NO income coming in, or means to sustain her living standard.
      So why are you surprised that Zambian’s see nothing wrong stealing from the most vulnerable, when THE HEAD OF STATE led the way, & showed the example of how to be a cheap heartless Crook???

  8. Well done British government for jolting Lungu. Very insulting that he listens to foreigners complaints about corruption but he ignores millions of Zambians painful cries.

    • Integrity start with being elected in free and fair polls. But when you rig, you will have to spend sleepless nights figuring out how best to rig the next rather than focus on improve the standards of living of millions ordinary flocks. Unfortunately the economy can’t rigged. Now you can’t even enjoy your loot which keeps on piling up like its coming from a popcorn machine. To make matters worse you have destroyed all institutions that would have helped you stick to the rule of law. Never take your corruption to the shores of Europe or USA, you will cry!

  9. Mr President it is you that is the problem…..no amount of window dressing can fix this mess…..

    Your silence on major corruption scams , 42/42, enswatini only reinforces the perception that you are a corrupt theif heading a corruption syndicate as alleged by many.

  10. Auditor General’s report is always ignored, manje uku ndaba our balls are being squeezed ndiye pamene mukamba ati investigate, Mr. President sure.
    I don’t even know if I still have both my balls, let me check.
    DAMN! Only one is remaining, and it’s tightly being squeezed in this vice called corruption.

  11. Lungu’s body language can tell that he is s man without confidence in whatever he does. He knows he is on that seat by accident. we have the dullest president in the whole world. His facial appearance tells of a man who is only good at tasting different brands of liquor. what a country. Can’t understand how we ended up where we are, with Edgar as president! fun indeed.

  12. It’s actually quite embarrassing forthe nation to be put on the spot….account for these monies bane…misapplication,misappropriation,mis whatever…just about any mis…you can think of just to save your skins…..this is UK taxpayers monies….what about Zambian taxpayers money….coz bad zed mwalibadelela, mubulapofye…..nomba isho shabene….did someone forget they needed to retire receipts for these monies spent???this social cash transfer was meant good for the”vulnerable”I wonder how it was being implemented coz pa Zed che kaya….bumukuku na buseka….ne Nansoni no mwenso fyalipwa mu bantu….it’s a shame!

  13. These monies people knew that they will somehow account for it…as in audited by the financiers…but they still did something to it…..what more monies that only them will audit….monies being hidden in Contract values and what not…..ala there’s no smoke without fire…..elo ifilala fyamuda yanama….umulandu nao taubola…..those entrusted with these issues be weary…

  15. Comment: Drinking is not a daily thing – this is just the beginning. ..one day the bottle top will drop out – u can fool some people sometimes but not all people all the time

  16. you are being reactive mr presido,otherwise that’s a story which has been exposed about three months ago.leaen to be proactive. Shame on you and the responsible minister. Minister responsble and zampost boss resign, thats shameful.

  17. Dull upnd cadres think running a country is as simple as looking after cows in kraal.Cash social transfer money is handled by several junior Govnt officers across Zambia and not the president.If you look at the report above,it is corrupt officers at zampost who misused the funds minus the president knowing.So even if we had HH in state house,this could still happen.This is africa where almost all civil servants are corrupt!!!NO NORMAL PERSON CAN BLAME PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU HERE UNLESS TRIBAL CREATURES CAMPED IN UPND WHO SEE LUNGU IN EVERYTHING DUE TO THEIR BITTERNESS!!!
    Please ACC cage the culprits as we hate corruption in Zambia!!!PF is doing very fine and come 2021,it will be PF nafuti nafuti!!

    • You are the same corrupt rats sucking the blood of my people ati

      ” cage the culprits ” ?

      Look in the mirror you will see a corrupt rat staring back at you….

    • Running a country is very simple. Rule # 1. Do not steal. Rule # 2. Report all thieves to authorities. Rule # 3. Arrest all thieves and corrupt individuals.
      Lungu fails on all. He steals. He does nothing about those who steal and He has never arrested or prosecuted anyone for stealing or corruption.
      He will be in the next government.

    • @ Njimbu–Grow up uncivilized boy! How can Zambia develop with people like you? When are you going to stop being a bigot? Why do you call people tribal creatures? A normal person would know that Zambia is polarized and reverse the situation. People from some ethnic groups are excluded from the affairs of the country, you call them tribal creatures.

  18. “The President has further regretted that that the comprehensive report on the administration of the social cash transfer funds ordered four months ago, was only availed to him on September 14, 2018.”

    If this does not scare you, then you need your brain examined. The president should always be given an intelligence briefing, even a scribbled one. He must let the Post master at Zampost go, and investigations to begin immediately.

  19. Kateka Edgar Lungu ewachitile commission ubupupu mu Zambia when he invited his PF cadres ukumba nokulya mwibala. The president should not only speak when doors hold their money. He could have listened to Kambwili long before now he wants to pretend as though he hates corruption meanwhile he promotes it.

  20. He has no shame always in his dranken stooper guess where KKIA he makes statements such as give us evidence yet institutions such as the ACC are only told to act only on his orders thats only against political opponents.Ala bwacha yama nomba filioko tuleya.

  21. Tasila, Chitotela, Eastern Province grade seven dropouts own dubious construction companies where all these monies is channeled and Lungu is fully aware of it. The donor money is tip on the iceberg with regards to how much these crooks have stolen. These *****s need to be put to death when they are out of power.

  22. This is sad for my beloved Zambia. Corruption, fraudulent behaviors and many more have come about because of Lungu himself, the president should be to blame for all the confusion going on in the country. “It’s like in a home, if the father abuses his wife in front of their children, they will also learn to be abusive, period!” What has happened to the $1000,000 fire trucks saga and many more unseen deals? The issue of fire trucks has died a natural death and nobody wants to talk about it. Where on planet earth a truck of that kind cost one million dollars, where?? Maybe on Mars planet! We all need to understand that what has been unearthed in Zambia has been going on for a long time. It amazes me what goes on in Zambia, people drive very expensive vehicles when they can’t even account for…

  23. As people above are saying, lungu is only acting because PF are broke and need western assistance …….now imagine what happens to Zambian tax payers monies , or monies from toll gates ?

    Lungu and his ministers are filthy rich…..our estimates put lungus pearsonal wealth at no less than $60 million….

  24. ,people drive expensive vehicles when they can’t even account for it. Only Zambians can hold these criminals accountable for all the crimes. Zambians need to wake up from slumber, we have been sleeping for so long. It’s about time we claimed what belongs to us, my beautiful country.

  25. Did it have to take the donors to request an audit and stop funding for Lungu to react? Mr. President please extend these measures to state house and all government institutions to instill full donor confidence. Additionally these social transfer chaps are just the small fish. We want the big fish

    • It took Sweden for the MMD government to act on the Kapoko case. Yes it’s bad for things to come to this. KK was right to introduce the law that required individuals to explain the source of their wealth. Simple people driving expensive Benz cars should explain how they managed to afford such cars. The social cash transfer funds were not only stolen at Zampost but even at distribution level. Officers don’t give the money to all the intended persons. They pocket the and you can tell by the lifestyles they lead.

  26. Zambia will fall apart and non of these chaps will be there. There is no future for this country. You will only accept corruption if you are caught. You can steal grant and aid for the poor. You have no honour and respect. Its just scandal after scandal.

  27. Alternative Facts Fake News S**thole Countries Social Mobility Chinese Zambia Police Reservists Corruption scandals: Ambulances Fire Trucks Mukula Trees Ndola-Lusaka Rd Malawi Maizegate Fuelgate Swaziland landgate Zesco Loans

    Being reactive and ordering speedy investigations that don’t mean anything just to save face.

    A scandal this big where all our major donors have frozen aud he can’t even front the media and the nation to address the issue live, preferring to issue lame statements through his mouthpiece minions. Unbelievable!

    The problem he is Corrupt in Chief so he’s work is already cut out for him. He could have asked the Heads of these departments to step down to allow forensic auditors and the law enforcement agencies to step in and investigate freely. How does he know that the secretary to cabinet and the minister are not involved in the scam themselves? Does this guy really have competent advisers around him? What an incompetent corrupt man this Lungu is!

  28. What time would he read a report, anyway? He is always on the road or in the air. But seriously, this is not the only issue. So many have been ignored – which we have constantly highlighted on this blog. The misappropriation of funds is alarming in Zambia. The tragedy, though, is that in spite of it being glaringly clear for all to see, all we have had are pathetic denials, simply not doing anything or literally giving those who dare complain, the finger.

  30. “President Lungu says he is as frustrated as the donors funding the programme because the main aim of the project is to ensure that the plight of the vulnerable in society is met.”

    Action speaks louder than words.

    When speaking to internationals organizations candor goes long way toward building a strong relationship

  31. THIS DISHONEST PETTY CHAWAMA DRUNKEN SORRY EXCUSE FOR A PRESIDENT, IS ACTING, & SHUTTING THE BARN DOOR, WHEN THE HORSE HAS ALREADY BOLTED!!
    Chawama Chagwa should be arrested, & his thieving Drunken party be dissolved asap, before more damage is done to the Nation!
    In the meantime, where Zambian Enterprise Junior, to tell us how Zambia is now developing with donor funds hidden deep in his & other P.F cadres pockets??

    • CHAKOLWA CHAGWA, WHAT HAPPENED TO, WHENEVER YOU WERE TOLD THAT EMBEZZLING WAS THE ORDER OF THE DAY, YOU WOULD WITH A HANGOVER REPLY “BRING ME THE EVIDENCE”?
      KOMA LELO VA KOMA.BWANJI??

  32. Mayi were!!!
    Ati President Lungu has ordered Msiska to probe.
    These are the same Kabolala’s who’ve been embezzling, & sharing the spoils with Chakolwa Pombe Chagwa, & those funds have been diverted to build the Drunks Mansion in Mbabane Eswatini.
    JOKEERS, PIMPS, THIEVES, & P.F PIRATES TRUTH BE TOLD!

  33. THIS TOTAL NOSENSE , WHAT KIND OF PRESIDENCE IS THIS , AFTER THE BRITISH GOVERMENT HAVE CUT AID , THATS WHEN YOU ARE TAKING ACTION , PEOPLE HAVEBEEN SAYING THIS FOR A LONG TIME ON THE CORRUPTION IN GOVERMENT BUT YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN ANY ACTION AS THE HEAD OF STATE OR HOLD ANY PRESS CONFERENCE TO CLALIFY OF MANY IMPORTANT THINGS HAPPENING IN THE COUNTRY . ZAMBIAN WHY ARE ARE WE SUBJECTED TO THIS KIND OF LEADERSHIP , THIS PRESIDENT IS A CORRUPY AND THATS WHY HE TORRARANTS CPRRUPTION IN THE GOVERMENT , IMPENCHMENT CAN BE A WISE THING , WE CANT JUST GONE LIKE THIS IN ZAMBIA , LOOK AT THE SCANDALS , IN ALL SECTORS AND IN ALL PROCUMENT , THERE IS CORRUPTION INVOLVED .

  34. But why after 54 years of independence do we need other countries to fund our programs. The thefts aside, I must say there’s something terribly wrong with all of us…without exception.

    • You are right. !mbecility has taken over the Country.
      So much about visionary, anointed and Endemically Corrupt Leader of Plunderers Federation!!!

  35. corruption fight is the least on the gvt agenda!! no wander the president doesn’t seem to be bothered by it only if the donors threaten!

    • Mr president, u have a report! Act now not delegating such a serious issue! fire kabanshi, why is it so difficult with u to fire some people?

  36. Apakomailanondo ninshi pali ubulema _ukumfwa tamumfwa kano mwamona _ amaano MWe limo yalafuma mwifwesa yaya mu chulu . ………… Kuli Pele _ Pele eko ifintu fibipa . could it be only the funds meant for social cash transfer ? ???? I wonder !!

  37. These allegations came from Africa Confidental. The same publication that has warned of the Chinese takeover of state assets such as ZESCO and high levels of corruption in govt. Seems their findings are correct. Why should Lungu act on this part of report at the same time claim Africa Confidetial is just propaganda from the West? Wake up Zambians, the PF regime is highly corrupt!

  38. Where are we going ? What is the destine of our good Zambia ? Who do we trust ? Where have we gone wrong ? Who can answer these questions in true sense ?

  39. THIS IS ORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. THE BATTLE IS BETWEEN THE WEST AND CHINA. ZAMBIA IS JUST THE GRASS THAT SUFFERS IN THE NAME OF CORRUPTION.

  40. It is very interesting to note that today the great leader who used to taunt people who said that there is corruption to bring evidence and yet he knew four months ago that there was embezzlement of funds and yet he didnt even care to take punitive action against the culprits only to do window dressing after the donors sound the alarm, what a dimwit!

    • Sharon you’re not thinking properly. Ubomba mwibala alila mwibala. Its ecl Pf president who told them. Just the he has fired kabanashi, he must also fire the tender probe. He shud also fire the one who stole 86 million dollars money for mukula tree. If its himself involved, he must step down…Zambia needs a clean up

  41. Chisenga maybe someone needs to slap you so you can come back to reality. We need to send you the Chinese loans too to pay off then u would understand the gravity of the situation than this hulicination of uncle bob
