  1. Good work PF govt. Development we applaud BUT corruption we don’t tolerate. Unfortunately projects like this have the cadres like Max score millions through balloon project pricing. This Unfortunately is the stench of PF development projects which overshadows the little development we see.

  2. After more than 50 years of independence, a relatively straight forward thing as street light installation is being sold to us as development. And we have an international company in charge of the project.

  3. In Lusaka, some streets such Burma road, Chilimbuli, town centre, Lumumba /Mumbwa road junction all the up to Star Cottage, no street lighting and they tell us that they moving this country forward. At Radian stores area, there are always call boys who block the road and extorting money from motorists. Charge between K5 and K10 depending on size of vehicle. This blocking of the road causes much traffic jams into Mumbwa road up to Zamanit and nothing is being done by the police.
