    It’s not lack of self-control but serious hardship facing most families. This is leading to failure by most men and women to provide for their families and is leading to regular bickering. It’s not possible to have a normal conversation when there’s hunger in the family.

    Realities of an economy that is poorly performing being felt at unit (family/home) level. Tension is gripping everyone coupled with frustration and many are seeking ways to release valve and let out! Pity the man as he probably acted under force of being tensed up and the normal being within self had failed him! I guess Lusambo coordinates his brain and heart to understand what his K2 million shopping change would mean to 10 000 families some of whom are supporters of PF!
