    A few facts to correct. Melcom Pharma was sold to Lungu, the commander in Chief of Zambia.
    Mohammad was a backwad looking Islamist. He was a stupid to travel fir wedding to Zimbabwe and bring COVID 19 new strain These Indo Pakis are worse than the Chinese and European colonisers.

      Mukhtar, you may be right. I’ve noticed so many of these Indo Pakis businesses and individuals are being implicated in various scandals and most of them hold Zambian citizenship even though they’ve not been in Zambia very long. I’ve been denied Zambian citizenship many times even though ‘ve lived in Zambia since the 1960s. What’s going on at immigration? Has ACC probed how one group of people could be awarded so many citizenships in a short time. The group also seem to be close to government leaders.

    He was a great man and rendered a lot of services through charity work. I remember this man jokingly saying that he had worked hard in his life and could lay his money notes on the ground or line the route to reach India. MHSRIP
