    • In Zambia we are officially metric…so it is 10:00 hrs (before 12:00) or 22:00 hrs (after 12:00) when referring to 10:00 on the clock. So the 10:00 hrs in the report refers to morning.

    • Zambia uses the 24 hour system my friend so that should tell you what time if day the incident happened.

    • Stephen K Manda don’t try to be smart for nothing understand the statement which was reported n my comment then u will stop talking about 24 hrs
