    Better they at least have a classroom. We of late used to learn under a tree such that when it starts raining, You would have to go home and hid in a liking grass thatched house.

      I had the previlege to attend classes from grade 1 to 7 at Alexander Mc Neil Primary School during the mid- 70’s.
      We only had european, aussie, newzealand & asian school teachers, who left after i completed my 7th grade.

      Then the Zambian teachers took over..i went to visit the school a few years later it looked worse than the picture in Mumfumbwe! I found all the windows had been broken, no desks or chairs or school piano insight.. even the wooden tiles had been dug out & damaged and the school pond was filled with rubbish. It was a sad sight!!

    Mufumbwe farmers are rejoicing because of the fast pace at which they are being paid for the maize they sold to FRA. They even completed the maize marketing exercise and remained with plenty empty grain bags at the main depot. Doest it have to take by-elections for people’s needs to be met? Cant this encourage the bewitching of M.Ps in the quest for development fast-tracked by by-elections? Victory won dubiously does not bring glory. When are we going to level the political field during elections?

    It’s really sad to see school pupils in such condition after 48 years of independence. Shame!!

    The amount of money they’ll spend on the bye-election is enough to furnish more than 10 schools and our politicians are very very happy about that.

    MOE distributes desks in almost all districts but the problem is the locals hav no sense of awareness in safe guarding school resources common scenerios in my districts solution is to promote preventive maintainance system in schools

    You vote wisely or foolishly, NO difference! Read about a girl who walks 100ks per week to school. YES here in Zambia!

    The tendancy of indetifing problems when a bye election is in place is a sad thing which we should stop as Zambians,dort create heaven on earth during election just because you are ruling remember the other party made a mistake by working on the election year i.e distrubuting chitenge even to trees,sweets bearing the president,paying farmers through FRA and buying maize endless,building schools even in forests were they felt they need vote,distributing desks in districts more than the number of pupils in that districts just to get votes,using presidential helicopters and motorcades to officiate even toilets, i fill pity of the young children siting on the floor in this era,PF should learn from MMD and do it different. right now there is no opposition in Zambia MMD was ruling for the past 17 years it will take more than 5 years for them to learn how to oppose that why one MP had to tire the President speech he was thinking he was opposing,i think FTJ was right when he wanted to have a school of political science look at how long THE PF is taking to adjust,and the opposition MMD is taking to adjust and UPND is taking to udjust from personal politics we need to start thinking of how to udjust from opposing and ruling and i fill we need to learn how to oppose the ruling and the ruling to accept opposing and no why they are opposing we should not be enemies during elections and we should be objective as we oppose

    Then vote wisely for the betterment of your future.North western is very behind in terms of development,they are dull.They are very difficult people to understand,you can take look of solwezi town,it is not even worthy to be called town,it needs some adjustments and some buildings which are built in town centres are in a dilapilated state.I hope and trust that the new govt will look into it.You can imagine where copper and gold is coming from and leaving the city in poverty.Roads are impassables too much dust and come rain season will be disaster and they are happy about that.Imagine for 48years of independence,pupils are still sitting on the floor and you have MPs in the constituency for what?whom are they representing then?please change for the better,its high time you kaondes to change,God loves you all.

    what selfish leaders such as Mumba and RB want to see for the people. this is from Mumbas comments that he just wants to frustrate PFs budget not because it will not help in alleviating poverty for many zambians but simply to teach Ba Sata a lesson. is this the type of leadership which has the people at heart. at pastor?
