  1. China needs to stop its people working in Africa to stop corrupting govt officials. if china wants to be taken seriously and accepted in Africa, it’s got to have the same approach to corruption it exhibits in its own country. Poor Chinese citizens who come to Africa bear the brunt of peoples anger and disdain against the Chinese due to people’s belief that everything they do is due to the corrupt collusion between china businesses and politicians. It’s sometimes evident that the poor workmanship in some projects is also due to these businesses trying to recoup the 10% corruption fees they pay politicians and govt officials.

  7. You can only examine it. It cant be cancelled. That is law for you. So it isn’t a PF or UPND debt. Its a Zambian debt regardless of how you tricked your country into it.

  8. Just work no finger pointing the Zambians are waiting to see what you can do , if you go back every one past government did something good and somethings bad the same it will be with this government we all know that all human beings are corrupt and there is no question about it.
    However every one needs opposition to check that they do no wrong, when in opposition you did well but you are in power you need to be checked or else you even the worst , I said you politicians are the same you into power to enrich yourselves .
    Your opposition works for you so you should respect each other as partners in governance of the Zambian nation.
