      Where on earth a five year old kills. My take on this is that an adult killed the boy and is framing innocent harmless children.

    This is what sin can do…. Our greatest problem is sin and our greatest need is salvation. Jesus Christ is the greatest solution to this problem. God said, “if my people who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray and seek my face, then I shall hear and heal their land”. As a country we need to humble ourselves before God, seek His face and repent from our sins. By so doing Zambia shall be saved.
