  1. But why keep a mentality challenged person at home instead of the psychiatric hospital? Too bad for the loss. MHSRIEP

  2. Very sad and I agree irresponsible to keep a mentally unstable person in such a setting. I think ignorance here is the problem.

    Partly this is why Zambians should not vote upnd. You can’t have mentally deranged chaps in control of a country

  3. Why they kept him at home is because of lack of medical facilities in this PF era. You have find yourself to a hospital even in an emergency and then you have to buy your own medicines
