  6. You have sold all sports fields to the Chinks in urban areas ..now you want the very little land to be used as fish ponds like at State House. Please take Lazy Lungu’s daft mindset somewhere else.

  7. This is excellent!! I actually recall having Production Unit, aka P.U back in the day in different Secondary Schools. It’s good to see that some of the previous excellent initiatives are being re-introduced and appreciated as they become more and more essential with a growing population that must diversify their career goals. In my opinion, any form of farming at this point is the way to go and a good beginning to bigger projects to come!!

  8. This is excellent but I hope the production units are being used as learning resources and not just for raising funds for school running costs. In some schools, only locally employed staff work in the so called production units. Children do not even know what is happening.

  9. Excellent but this is not a new initiative it was implemented long time ago during UNIP era.
    The only problem is leadership quality in country.
    These are the same ideas of kaunda vision.We used to have production unity at boarding
    school across the country.
