  1. Excellent work by ministry of health and education and all stakeholders. This is evidence that Zambia is a blessed country with competent government. Even in Europe they are falling to open schools and yet here we are doing it successfully. Those in diaspora how does it feel to be in first world which has failed lamentavbly

  2. I’m beginning to think that apart from your insolence, you are an ardent image builder for Zambia and the PF.

    Hopefully, you will continue to build Zambia’s image if/when another party is elected to government.

  3. This old hen must be very dull…I mean how children or Under 16 without any underlining illnesses has died from covid-19 anywhere in the world. …she thinks covid is cholera.

  4. Tarino are schools open in your England? Fuseke. Continue isolating. Immigrants like you won’t even get the vaccine before zambians. There if you are poor and black as you are you are considered a waste of space. Now go on and post your copy and paste comment about trolling.hahahahahahahahahahaha

  5. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “Don’t feed the trolls.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.

    You should try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how poorly they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re not worth your time of day.
