    Football has resumed, we also need school to open inspite of the epidemic, if football which attracts many people can resume what about school , we tired of living in our homes , during lockdown others have ended up becoming prostitutes , thugs and so on, please we kindly request the Government in to reopen the schools for non examination classes

      It’s not possible, why? exam classes attending classes have been spread meaning a class of say 45 pupils has been allocated in 4 classes in order to observe social distance, exams will be written in December so non exam classes will resume in January 2021

      No game is more important than life.If there re so many people testing positive how do we know how many more are in the stadium? The risk is too high. The games should have been postponed. Dont act like the USA and Brazillian presidents who are killing their citizens because they want the economy to work during the epidemic

    I think we should not compromise things look people are getting effected and dying why the resumption of the league to me it doesn’t make any sense Ba FAZ look into this matter and you can imagine prayers being tested positive just immediately the game no wonder we had the between zesco and kansanshi being played late
