  29. Agogo

    Zambia Police dig dipper, that case is more than what the eyes can see.The stolen drugs are prescription drugs and are supposed to be stored under lock and key at the pharmacy , therefore some people at the pharmacy are involved. We hear of perpetual shortages of drugs in hospitals and even drugs for mentally sick people,this is shameful.
