    God will see us through. These are the Sign of times there is nothing new on the earth but this the time to HOLD on to GOD almighty. LUKE 21:28 When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

    If Zambia is to be locked down I think people will be excreting water because of poverty,so I urge the government to distribute food to the people before undertaking this method.
