    One can not fail to notice in the midst of the tragedy , lungu and Lusambo holding public gatherings to prove PF popularity, spreading this virus further………he most likely contracted the virus from one of his reporting OP officers who went to work at one of these gatherings

    It should have been one of them to die instead of innocent people …..

  7. Why not just say he died of covid-19? We’re all at risk from this virus in the absence of a vaccine. Samuel Nkhoma was ordinary flesh and blood and therefore as susceptible to the virus as all of us.
