  2. Who is killed? Who was pierced to death? A confusing statement.
    This is what happens when due diligence is lacking in our scribes.

    • Mulongoti I have stated before that the general poor education in the country reflects right here. Journalists can’t write, lawyers can’t rationalise, engineers can’t construct, our universities have been downgraded, excellence has fled, politicians resort to theft and corruption society degenerates

  4. This means whoever passed the story was either drunk or doesnt have a modicum of comprehension. The headline says “Mother stabs 22 year old son to death” The story says the opposite! Its the son who has killed the mother. How on earth could a sober person confuse the issue?? Nikufunta olo ni just dont give a hoot attitude?

  5. So who stabbed who? Lusaka times, you need to be serious. Please find a competent editor to double-check your articles. Be professional.
