  1. This is so I scientific, this man should articulate himself like the doctor he is. Need more facts and figures and not just a global 70% without substance, I am assuming this ministry keeps statistics on diseases, but again we have a culture that cares less about these things

    • We can do it! I am sure he is still jealous of this report but you wonder how he “loves” the people he wants to desperately rule! Even his cronies are not happy! “ONLY a Tonga can make things right!” UPND is the waste news to ever happen to Zambia. Bitter herbs for breakfast, bitter herbs for lunch and bitter herbs for supper = BITTER HEARTS.

    • Lungu has very funny characters working for him…is this man a real doctor or Matero University doctor????and there’s evidence that this man is very corrupt….thieving doctor


    • @2, “Ati this is Lubbish to have a loser wanting to a president for Zambia?” You Ha right! HAZALUZA HAGAIN because he is UNLIKABLE and “UNVOTALABLE!”

  3. Oct 17th 2019 the heading was ” Zambia sees an Increase in Malaria cases” One week later, 70% drop. Wow genius government.
