  1. This is sad because CopWaste is struggling but there’s a bigger problem that requires your attention madam. Why were newly appointed teachers made to pay K384 instead of K84 to pick finger prints by the Police at Kitwe Central yesterday? Who among your ranks is getting the K300?

  2. Lung’s legacy, you need guards to guards to be safe. Everyone wants to build 14 flats “immediately”.
