  1. That is a plus for PF’s Govt. someone will not want to hear that. Let us give credit where it is due and criticism where it is due and not blanket criticism. There has been a lot of positive developments in Zambia but little do we hear an aota of acknowledgement from vocal guarters. Instead all we hear is incenssant criticisms bordering on hate and sour grapes.

      Aren’t you supposed to know for yourselves that stealing is bad for the economy and everyone?
