  1. This is great News! Why dont we hear about it? The news media are only interested in which politician has insulted who. Turning all of us into tabloid spectators drooling over when will Nawakwi insult HH and how will HH slap her back. Come on media . This is a great story:

    • I hope the foreigners pay handsomely. This can grow as medical tourism. We are charged an arm and a leg for treatment in India, RSA etc. The govt must manage this, it wil be a big forex earner for the country. I suggest earnings from this hospital are channeled to improving facilities and resources at our govt run specialised hospitals.

  2. ‘Conducted various cardiac diseases.’ This is a first in the history of the world. Zambians conduct diseases! kikikikikikiki
