Politic is no dirty game – Nawakwi tells fellow women

Forum for Democracy and Development President Edith Nawakwi has advised women to stop looking at politics as a dirty game fit only for the un-baptized and wicked as it is a calling to serve.

Ms. Nawakwi is calling on fellow women in the country to stop looking down on women in politics as political leadership is not different from any other leadership.

She has noted that women leadership is also provided in the bible hence women should stop shunning politics as that is the only way they will liberate themselves.

The FDD president has observed that if many women were in political leadership such as Councilors and Members of Parliament (MPs) cases of illegal land allocation and other immoral vices associated with politics would reduce.

She has however suggested that former Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Mutale Nalumango should have taken over as the Speaker after Amusa Mwanamwambwa.

Ms. Nawakwi says she had personally hoped that after the changes in 2011 there would have been a female Speaker to join other countries in the continent that have female Speakers.

She is of the view that having a female Speaker would help the women’s cause in the country as Ms. Nalumango would have used her position as Speaker to impress on the country’s President to use his prerogative to appoint women as MPs to increase women representation in Parliament.

The opposition leader was speaking at the fundraising breakfast for St. Lawrence orphanage of Misisi Compound Chelstone Catholic Women’s League in Lusaka today.

And Ms. Nawakwi has suggested that it is the duty of all citizens in the country to give a helping hand to those in need and that the CWL should be helped in the works they are doing by all well meaning Zambians.
She say it is also the duty of the communities to help were government has failed so as to lessen the burden of taking care of the needy in society.

Speaking at the same event United Party for National Development National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango said political party supporters should not take the debates and different opinions of the leaders into physical differences.

Ms. Nalumango says leaders differ on principal but that they will never fight over their difference in opinion or policies.

She has since called on supporters of different political parties to avoid fighting over political differences because their leaders argue in one minute but in the next minute they still interact at social places.

  1. Good talk ladies. I support that we should have ladies in leadership but they have to fight for it on merit not just giving them.

    Please you must as well remember that 20 January 2015 Edigar Lungu is president of Zambia.

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

  2. POLITICS HAS NEVER BEEN DIRTY BUT DIRTY PEOPLE HAVE WASHED THEIR DIRTY IN POLITICS HINDERING CLEAN PEOPLE TO STEP INTO POLITICS DUE THAT DIRTY OF DIRTY PEOPLE. HENCE ONLY THEM WHO ARE STUCK IN POLITICS SINCE THEIR DIRTINESS IS SO MUCH THAT NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO CLEANED IT. BUT THE MORE CLEAN PEOPLE GO INTO POLITICS THE MORE CLEANER IT BECOMES.

    IT IS SERVICE TO FELLOW MAN KIND AS IT WERE GOD HIMSELF SERVING MAN THROUGH FELLOW MAN.

    ZAMBIA IS THE CHAMPION AND MUST EMULATE SUPER KEN WHO MANAGED TO UNITE ALL THE 73 TRIBES OF ZAMBIA FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT. IT CAN BE DONE AGAIN! ASK SUPER KEN HOW HE DID IT!

  3. Saki refuses to rejoin UPND

    UNITED Liberal Party (ULP) president Sakwiba Sikota yesterday said UPND president Hakainde Hichilema is not honest in his offer of reconciliation because he has failed to deal with tribalism in the party. Responding to Hichilema who on Tuesday invited him to rejoin UPND in the spirit of national unity and development, Sikota said Hichilema’s offer to the leadership and membership of ULP to rejoin UPND was not genuine and was laced with thorny issues.

    Sikota accused Hichilema of playing to the gallery by using the press without apologising to the people that suffered at the 2006 UPND convention and those who were still affected by the alleged tribalism in the party. He said if Hichilema really wanted…

  4. Saki, if he really loves Zambia, must genuinely forgive HH and help Zambia develop because he is one of the Zambians who have the capacity to help develop Zambia. Why? Because we saw what they were able to do when they team up with our beloved late brother Mazoka. There is power in unite.
    Please Saki, think Zambia and not HH! ONE DAY hh WILL BE GONE BUT ZAMBIA STILL REMAINS AS ZAMBIA FOR ZAMBIANS!!!!
