  4. This is in response to a news item in Z.w.D that Lota’s body is stranded in South Africa and government has refused to assist. This shall serve as a lesson to become self-reliant. We are a nation of beggars, from national level to individual level, from school fee, beer, food, to funerals, we always expect others to chip in and help.
    We have lost dignity and become shameless people. Even Z.W.D begs from the likes of Mahtani and blocks comments on them. This is not a news but disgrace to Zambia, Lota family and footballers. Why does not FAZ have a fund for such eventualities? Why did not the player save from his earnings?
    Why, why?
