  4. Time to rethink our health infrastructure development policies. Engage the Zambians abroad with ideas, so that you stop wasting so much money on taking moribund people abroad. Please, reflect on this.

  7. May he rest well in the favour of God Almighty. Bless his family with the grace of peace.

    Although we moaned and groaned about airlifting him abroad at least now we can sign relief that he died knowing Zambia had honoured him for his works for us. It is good to give Love.

    • Oh……and Secretary to the Cabinet Roland Msiska, will be missed for his infinitesimal service in the role. As Head of Atomic something of Zambia, he will uphold Brilliance on the sector. God Bless him and thank you Sir for your shining example whilst serving in the highest Office.

      His Excellency, President Lungu, will surely miss your polished performance.
