First Liberia, now Zambia.

Recently in Liberia, all the students who wrote a university entry examination this year failed. Now comes the news that in Zambia, out of 250 students who sat for post-university law practice examinations at the Zambia Institute of Advanced Legal Education, better known by its acronym ZIALE, only six passed.

The news of the grim result was announced by lawyer Maureen Mwanawasa (@mwanachilembo), former first lady and widow of Zambia’s third president, the late Levy Mwanawasa, in a tweet to her followers:
