    • Just fulfiling the PF stratergic plan. This was well thought out blue print. we are happy that the UPND govt is moving with it. Well done UPND and Mr HICHILEMA.

  1. The quality and style of these structures being commissioned nowadays leaves much to be desired. They cannot be compared to the modern structures the previous govt built. Truth be told!!!! The ones we are seeing commissioned are so colonial outdated and tells much about the now Zambia.. shame the country has gone way backward again.

    • Just look at that building. The landscaping is half-done so all the dust will be blown inside and also brought indoors by us pedestrians. And given the fact that public servants in Zambia dont like working it wont be cleaned will be a slum. Take note reporters and give us a picture of this building on the same date every year
