  1. Students to pay for a weekly visit of a health professional? Why? Health professional from where? Are there no health professionals at that or those clinics? If there are no qualified health professionals why don’t we have any because we have a lot of qualified nurses and clinical officers that are not employed? I hope the medicine is written in English language.

  2. I am tired of Africa being dependent on hsndouts despite being rich in nstural resources. How can you as head of a family hold your head high if everyday your nieghbours come to the rescue of your starving household while you spend your salary on booze and prostitutes? Everything is about donors…please. Meanwhile you have a finance minister who says there is nothing wrong drinking on duty !! And a president who says Ubomba mwibala alya mwibala. Whats wrong with us black africans? We have this affinity to electing incompetent and thieves into power. Obama despite being fathered by a kenyan became USA president because that country believes in excellence.

  3. I agree with you @PM I will not mention Africa as a whole but we as a country should stop this habit of receiving handouts and publicizing such in the media. If anything self reliance should be encouraged and if charity work needs to be done, it can be done through formally registered foundations owned by the well off individuals of our country. But such acts of charity should not be publicized in the media, do it quietly so as not to incalcate dependence mentallity among the citizenry. If Zambia is to develop, she needs to grow a bone of self reliance and become an innovative state herself.

  4. “under the able Leadership of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu ”
    Are our diplomats instructed to always insert the above phrase in their speeches? I notice that the European diplomats never mention their presidents or prime Ministers
