    The only institutes that have the technical know to organize and make substances to gas people are labs. This labs can only exist under the permission of the government. It is strange that the government and the police pretend not to know anything. Yet the same criminals like Mulenga from Chingola who are paid, protected by the government even find audience by the President at state house. It is a shame to see the President mixing with criminals. Even habouring ministers like the minister of health responsible for stealing millions and only to share with the President. While a lot of poor Zambians are dying without medicines and without foods. It is is strange that even poor people like minister Kapata and others have become contractors to projects and turn into some of the richest Zambians. This will one day come to and end. We are all watching them very carefully.
