Allow me to speak my mind on the happenings of country Zambia.I was never there during the colonial era but what I am witnessing in our country Zambia is worse than that era.
There are a few selfish individuals who think Zambia is their own and no one has a right but themselves and are willing to go the entire mile to make sure they achieve their goal which is to enrich themselves.It is very disheartening to know that these people we elect and die for during campaigns to serve the country are the ones killing it.
Our politician’s failure to mature and rise above partisan, personal and tribal politics is the downfall for this beautiful country. We have never had a government in this country mandated to rule who still think they are in opposition and in the end no plan of action is ever implemented or made in the first place.
One other problem with Zambian politics is the type of people who occupy ministerial positions,the police,the judiciary, the government papers , NGOs and the so called donors.They are never chosen on merit.
Look also at how the Post Newspapers has since lost all its direction. I feel really bad that such a promising paper is slowly but surely dying. to make matters worse killing itself after having struggled so hard to reach the heights it had attained and gaining the peoples trust.No matter what comes or how many years to come the Post will never be the same again. One piece of advice I would give to Mr M’membe -sir dont let money blind you,don’t drag the paper in your personal wars as Post and M’membe are two different entities. Come out in the open and declare your interests instead of hiding behind the Post and your dictionary English.
Finally I want to tell all Politicians, Fake NGOs, Police, Judiciary and Churches that you shall be judged accordingly for what you are doing for making the masses especially the poor die because of your selfishness , your greed ,your drunkenness for power and desire for revenge -you shall pay.
