I went to one of the Department of One of the Registration centres in Lusaka to have my lost NRC replaced, when I reached there, I was told to produce a police report which required me to pay a K54($2.71) before obtaining one from Zambia Police. I never managed to do so because I lost all my vital documents previous day. On my way out an officer told me to follow him and I did like he said, we ended up in an office with two other Women who had also lost their NRC’s and we were told to pay a K100.00($5.01) each and get our NRCs instantly, the other persons made the payments and I couldn’t due to poverty. I left the offices in disbelieve and went to look for a K54($2.71) for Police report instead. And this trend I have experienced though differently but at the same offices, poor people spend days at these offices just for them to get an NRC which is an entitlement meanwhile people with money spend minutes.

I went for a job interview on the Copperbelt where l was asked for K10,000 ($481.20) so that l could be given a place in their company. Unfortunately, I didn’t have that money, but even if l had that money, I still l couldn’t have paid, but rather setup a business that could make a difference in my life. So that’s how l missed that opportunity. Corruption is like a Cancer that is slowly destructing the economy of many Nations of the Earth. I hate corruption with passion.

Hi friend, I am a professional teacher, I completed my tertiary Education in 2017. After draining all the little savings my parents saved for their retirement, I became so desperate to haunt for a job in government. As it has now been none, I met a lot of District Education Boards Secretary (DEBS) on WhatsApp from different Districts through friends and family. The first one, asked for k5000 ($239.07), that I would get a job instantly, I sold my phone plus other items and sent him the money, immediately his phone went off and was went offline forever, Mpaka nalelo(till today) so.

I was coming from town with my friend when we met a female traffic police officer, she pulled us over to the side of the road because the car we were traveling in didn’t have insurance. Because we were such in a hurry the officer said she would only let us go if we offered her something for lunch which we did because we were so desperate…we gave her a k150 ($7.16) and that’s how she let us.
