  1. Zambia never ceases to amaze me we are a great country but our laws are completely in disarray. And this begs the question on what our legislators paid by tax payers money do in parliament. Someone can start manufacturing medicines in your country without registration and all you can do is to tell the citizens to be careful! God Help us. The fact that someone manufactures items that they parade as medicines should give the ZAMRA the authority if they have one not only to tell them to stop manufacturing these substances without registration but must be charged. Otherwise every Jil and Jack will come in the country and just manufacture whatever without registration. Zambian authorities can we stop this inept behaviour and apply appropriate laws to safeguard our people.

Why not go ahead and seize the facility, all the products and arrest the man? People’s lives are at stake here!

  3. Surely how can people be taking medication over the counter for Acidosis as Africans the cures are found naturally. Acidosis causes can include chronic alcohol use, heart failure, cancer, seizures, liver failure, prolonged lack of oxygen, and low blood sugar. All this can be cured by adhering to an alkaline diet …cleanse your body with herbs by fasting, zero alcohol intake and as for prolonged lack of oxygen take Sarsaparilla root.

  4. No punitive measures?
    money realised by illegal means–you know what the law states about such
    What about Boom Detergent–is it safe for use?
    There is a lot happening right under your noses that are detrimental to human life
