  5. ‘The United States remains committed to supporting democracy, human rights, health, education, food security, and economic growth in Zambia’. But alas, the PF government remains committed to dwindling democracy, human rights, health, education, food security, and economic growth in Zambia. What an insult to freedom fighters and the plurality of Zambians.
