      At what time are Citizens going to enjoy favaourable UNZA/CBU FEES? When compaign time comes some politicians even promise free tetiary education or @ least paying the barest minimum, but put them in power even feeding hand to mouth becomes tough for most of the population in the country.
      Serious begging is back on the Streets by people of all ages. Mwe Lesa cine eko mwaba.
      Education that started off as free will now be unaffordable financially by many people. How is the National cake being shared? Ati imiti iikula empanga. Nomba impanga eyo tamwa cemenene bwino?
      The Have-Nots will ‘ve even the shirt on their backs stripped off them to expose them to the sun, wind and rain (No hope). Haves will ‘ve more added onto them. Comment
