  1. How when internet is so expensive in Zambia ??

    Zambia has to be one of the most expensive countries to acsses the internet……

  2. Professor, please work on the recent downgrade of the Zambian universities to college status.
    This is more important than migration to self-paced distance learning which can wait.

  3. They need to improve our internet first before people start complaining about not being able to access classes. How do you also upload and download huge files with our so unreliable internet. These people need to have town hall meetings where we can question them about the viability of such an undertaking succeeding. Also what happens in case of load shedding and other interruptions.

    • Yes,and the easiest way for your competitor to seriously damage your credibility is to hack your system and bring in down for days.Are you game for this kind of turf war?

  4. Ma ma ma…PhDs for cadres galore, This time they will get on be PhDs at rallies. Wither us who got degrees during Kaunda’s time. We shall be judged as being a “Dr”Kambili like!
