  1. Mrs Kaoma what you should be suggesting is another cheaper and affordable bouquet with lical contebt only as as an affordable option instead of this “crown tv” whose content has no bearing on the cost, the outcry of your customers.
    This is just a tell tale sign of how people at the top can behave like “Ostriches” with their heads in the “sand”. Zambia needs leaders who address the issues not those that use lipservice and rethoric to run away from issues. This isnt South Africa where ANC lipservice works…and people tolerate their loadshedding and corruption stories
