On its morning programme show of May 6, 2015, Radio Phoenix conducted a live research on toll free emergency numbers.
It is shocking that most emergency numbers are non-functional or there is no-one to respond to them. The Fire service, the Police, Ambulance Service and Child helpline are some of the lines that were not reachable or had no response.
I hope journalists will take up the matter with relevant authorities.
There is a lot of negligence of duty in Zambia and a lot of things are not being implemented. I wish all the people in charge of these departments offering emergency services can explain to Zambians why these numbers are non-functional.
