  2. If only our politicians could just show half or even a quarter of Jan’s integrity, hardwork, consistence, humbleness ( not to be confused with Lungu’s humbleness) sincerity, dedication and faithfuness, Zambia would begin to work. WELL DONE JAN….Have you considered politics as a career? Of course not….you are way above that and very much human.
