The Consulate General of the Republic of Zambia has received medical supplies worth US$38,000 from Huajian Group of China as a donation to help in the fight against Covid19.

  3. There’s something uninformed people don’t know about hand-me-downs. Check them out carefully before accepting them. Kenneth Kaunda as president of Zambia in the 1980s accepted food aid from one of the iron curtain countries only to find that it was contaminated with radioactive material. Read also the book entitled DESTINATION BIAFRA by Nigerian author Buchi Emecheta. There’s something she writes about the business of helping other nations that’s eye-opening. In this particular case she was writing about the attitude of British military leaders as they were deciding wht weapons to give to the Nigerian Army as the country was moving to independence.

  4. It’s one way to transport Chinese nationals to Zambia in that plane nothing more important.they have seen that no any other ways to bring Chinese in our country.when is Zambia going to stop receiving free things? Zambia has become like street kids whereby they are begging everyday no matter they have money or food. Industries are needed in our country they only know how to make bicycles that even a blind person can ride

  5. Africans and dependance syndrome! If you want to plunder and african, give the leaders a few small trinkets and you can plunder as much wealth as you want. Its what the west did during slave trade and colonialism. They gave chiefs small trinkets and the chiefs gave away land and minerals and sold their people as slaves.
    China is far worse. They plunder and promote corruption and do business with no ethics. The polute the environment and kill local industries. Then we are here thanking them for little trinkets.

  6. Receiving the left overs. Please tell us what the Zambian government has contributed towards covid 19 pandemic

  15. I find some of the comments very irritating, annoying and unfortunate.
    China has manged to reduce local transmissions.
    They were able to use their own locally manufactured equipment.
    Zambia is not able to produce any of the donated equipment.Absolutely not.
    If you Zambians don’t need the equipment ,then produce your own and don’t accept the donated equipment.

  16. It’s important to stay positive at this time. The shoe manufacturing will bring employment past the Corona pandemic. Although, we need medical supply manufacturing rather than shoes, we had BATA. Immigration should ensure investors are relevant to our economic needs.

    We are grateful for the gift to fight the virus.
