  1. We have been hearing such statements from politicians for the past 25 years and yet our education system is in free fall. African governments/politicians will never commit to improving education because it doesn’t benefit them at all..
    Uneducated and suffering population = Easy votes..
    just give them chitenge and cooking oil and they will vote for us

  2. @Uncle T.
    Imagine they even have the balls to say they’ve met 7NDP key milestones. We challenge to take their children to GRZ schools.

  3. Yes. Uncle SG Mwila even got 6 points in his Grade 12. Well done, PF. It is beyond belief what this government is capable of mwe. Starting from the finish line back to the start shuwa!!!!
