Part of the Jobless 6 protesting
Part of the Jobless 6 protesting

The six former UNZA graduates who were recently arrested after staging a protest over high unemployment have described as illogical former President Michael Sata’s daughter Stella for graduates to venture into entrepreneurship as illogical.

The six who have now being named Jobless six feel Stella should be the last person to offer advice to young people on entrepreneurship.

Featuring on the HotSeat radio program on Hot FM, three of the six youths condemned Stella’s reaction to their protest and accused her of mocking their joblessness.

The three, Frederick Kapambwe who graduated in 2004 in Environmental Education, Vincent Chaile, a 2013 Bachelors of Science graduated and Gasto Boniface Mugande who left UNZA in 2014 with a degree in Public Administration and Economics said their crusade over the lack of jobs will spark a revolution in Zambia.

‘For Stella, she is a child who has never suffered, some of us were brought up in a ghetto and we are closer to reality, there is no way someone who has never suffered and has never been to UNZA, she was taken to Malaysia because she didn’t even quality to come to UNZA can start asking us to start selling tomatoes,’ Chaile said.

Mugande said the Jobless six have all done their level business to find jobs but to no avail’.

‘We have done everything, which country I don’t know in Southern Africa because i did cross border trade. I used to suffer to pay my school fees, i even delayed to graduate because of school fees then after finishing hoping to get a good job only to receive wrong advice from a daughter of the late President Mr Sata that i should go back to the streets and sell tomatoes. I think that is misguided especially coming from the child of the former President, it is quite unfortunate,’ Mugande said.

Kapambwe said, ‘It is sad to learn that throughout my school life in Zambia, i didn’t come across any lesson to teach me to write a business proposal, i was just taught to write application letters.’

He added, ‘I used to buy laptops from China and resell but because of the dollar issue, i have stopped because i will be making losses because of weak Kwacha.

Chaile said most young entrepreneurs face difficulties with accessing capital and that most of the young people are from poor family and do not have c collateral.

He also condemned Government for imposing the new retirement and freezing the wage freeze.

Kapambwe stated that Zambia’s developmental challenges today are due to leadership and policy problems.

‘The business environment is unfriendly making it very difficult to start a business in Zambia,’ he said.

They also condemned Government for issuing over 30,000 work permits to foreigners despite work deficit without considering the plight of local people.

  1. Stella is very dull and stupid. She is a failure and she never had any challanges, so she should just keep quite as she is enjoying her father’s money. Thank you.

    • The fact is that Stella’s dad failed lamentably to provide an enabling environment for youth to thrive in Zambia. if we had a vibrant manufacturing industry, youths would be employed. How about agriculture, tourism and commerce…what did the late Sata do to expand these in Zambia for his spoiled daughter to have guts to mock people ?

    • Stella was right! You are university graduates be innovative! Even in the most developed countries, a Degree doesn’t always translate into a job upon graduation.

      Anyway UNZA graduates are half baked, they want everything handed to them. If a Kaponya with a high school education is able to make a living, ngaiwe why are you standing there holding silly cardboard signs?

    • OUR ZAMBIA GRADUATES HAVE FOUND THIS A VERY BIG ANALYTICAL JOB. BEING TALKATIVE AND DOING NOTHING TO SOLVE THEIR UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEM IS BIG AND PRIORITY OCCUPATION FOR THE ZAMBIAN GRADUATES. I PERSONALLY INSIST THAT STELLA SATA WAS RIGHT. BEING A GRADUATE IS IN PRACTICAL SENSE BEING A BRAIN STORMER AND THEREFORE, PROBLEM SOLVER.

      Half backed because there is too much umwembeshi (copying) pa UNZA. Most of the chaps scrap through plagiarism and other crooked methods and that is why when they face the real world in the their area of study they fail to excel-I only give respect to the UNZA graduates of the 1990’s and years before that. Many current recent graduates in the first instance went there through leakages and try to pull through their 4-5 years programmes through copying, many will confess to this ……………

    • @ Nubian Princess: Well written: UNZA students think being at UNZA gives the right to everything. Just the name makes them limited to Innovative thinking, Is it the word Tomato that Stella used which has made them Angry?

      Get serious Guys and don’t embarrass yourselves. Zambia is not the only place you can look for Jobs, we are in the Global world of Social Media. Look outside. Also don’t think Sata or any other Politician children have it easy, they work hard. Therefore eliminate that Notion and don’t criticize every advice.

      Start looking than making silly noises.

    • Yes, it is the duty of the government to provide an environment where jobs can be created. However, since our successive governments have failed us,I wish to advise my jobless brothers, now that they have got the attention of many Zambians, to come up with a plan together with other unemployed graduates and present it to the relevant ministry or business houses and see if they cannot be assisted. Get a piece job to get you going, remain focused on yo goal until yu succeed. 20 years ago I had a hand to mouth job in Zambia. I used it to cross the border. Although I cannot call myself well to do, I live far much better than I did 20 years ago. The good news is I earn an honest income with no deals, nepotism, corruption and the like. Never give up!

  2. Just look at the courses they did, VIKWAKWA VEKA VEKA..no wonder they are on the street languishing and thinking that the World owes them a job. Zambia and the world owes no one a job, show us what you can bring to the market, show us what problems you can solve for us, show us how you can help us better our lives , and capitalist Zambia will create a road to your house with a lot of cash.

    ABASH this spirit and attitude of entitlement. And VIVA Stella Sata, just look at her web site and the things she is doing and look at any digital profile of these so called UNZA graduates who used to sell laptops. It is obvious why they languishing on the street. Stop blaming the Zambia you inherited, you inherited peace and affordable education, do the rest please

    • Chanda BJ: You are just a failed Ar.se without an ounce of intelligence! If your wh.ore Stella was good enough, she would have been doing Business in Zambia not Europe.
      You are so foo.lish to admire something as simple as a website – she just paid someone $50 to do it for her because she has no brains to do it herself!! The bit.ch is enjoying the stolen RDA money in the Europe where Govts have created good business environments WHILE her father messed up the economy in Zambia.

      Your Stella is just one of the pay “per do” black call girls in the UK – no one even knows her as a bas.ta.rd daughter of Satan.

    • @Chanda BJ; exactly my thoughts. Those courses are useless. In this day and age one has to get a degree that would translate into a job. Being a UNZA graduate in name only does not guarantee employment. That school and all the universities and colleges in Zambia do not teach enterpreneurship. They only concentrate on making students study useless impractical materials that do not translate autonomy and or jobs. Next time get a degree in IT, or teaching or nursing better yet bricklaying. Otherwise get a space at your nearest market!

  4. The civil service is over subscribed so don’t excepect government to squeeze you into the civil service. Why are you taking it out on a young girl and intepret what she said out of context? She is telling you to be innovative, the fact that she used tomatoes as an example should not limit you to tomatoes, try selling pupwe as well. Ask the propriator of DANA services, the man graduated from UNZA and has never worked. Today he is a millionare, ask Silvier catering she started by selling nshima today she even runs a college. Gratuated in 2004 and you are still waiting for government to give you a job? Try in Mass.

      LOL. I was going to say the same thing. The one with some qualification in economics should know better. Whether stella was raised rich or poor, I don’t care but finally someone has given these graduates homework. They should continue blaming everyone else but themselves for their misery, lets see how well that works out for them.

  9. Wrong approach! I recently explained,and I wish to retaliate that in most african countries today, a university degree is regarded as basic education. It is interesting that you learning it so late. Many with Masters and PHDs are equally toiling. The purpose of education nowadays is gaining skills for self reliance. I used to ignore that bitter truth but it is the true position. The earlier you accept it, the better. Expose yourself to any available chance and utilise it promptly or you live to regret. The girl was right, her palatial status notwithstanding. I expect an equal share of supporters and opposers.

  10. its getting interesting. however, to expect a freshly graduated person to venture into business is fallable. Govt needs to provide enabling environment. there should be choice of those who want to work and those who would like to venture into business. it shouldnt be must that everyone will become a businessman. look at the mess in Nigeria, where everyone is a businessman. corruption & unlawlessness is the older of the day. let govt show leadership and find a solution to youth unemployment. Then it should also address underemploymentness in Zambia.

  11. Stella is right. You did not go to school for someone to come and find employment for you. Thats why you are called University graduates. You need to create one yourselves. You are kind of the people that is taking this country backwards. Make a step forward and create one yourselves.

  13. Not everyone will be an entrepreneur. Do not beat about the bush! Govts all over the world have a responsibility to create jobs for its people whether govt jobs or in private sector. That is why civilised govts are concerned with unemployment; they always talk about how many jobs they have created. So instead of wanting everyone to be an entrepreneur, let PF tell us how many jobs have been created in the first quarter of 2015. Zambian entrepreneurs are having it rough under PF govt as kwacha is difficult to find.

    • Just how many tomato sellers are there in Zambia? With the faltering economy venturing into business when people dont have many to spend is ridiculous. Stella should just keep quiet, Zambia was doing fine economically until her late buffoon of a father got into state house.

  14. Those who work in the toilets, sell tomato or work in the banks, kwacha ni imozi (Chris Chali). I am a UNZA graduate and currently working as a Manager at one firm in Kitwe. Believe it or not, I grow and sell tomatoes! My neighbour is a Magistrate and he also grows and sells tomatoes. Sorry, I do not have a farm yet but do it on some rented piece of land. Very little capital was required. Uzalila uzalema and no one will give you free lunch.

  17. Old proverb. When a father died he told his five sons that his wealth was buried somewhere in their farm. He did not tell them exactly where in the field he had buried the treasure. The boys started digging. They dug and dug without finding anything. They had finished digging the whole farm when an old woman heard them complaining over the work. The old woman told them that since they have the whole farm why not plant maize in digging they had done and they planted the maize. The yields were very high and they made a lot of money out the maize sales. THIS IS THE TREASURE THEIR FATHER MEANT, NOT GOLD OR SILVER.

It’s not only them who are Jobless, but they are doing the part that will take many people of you who are loughing at them to good.My friend those guys are not fools, they want Jobs. Just Imagine if 500 UNZA graduates will locate themselve to abroads for jobs, what will your country poor zambia remain with? You will not have Doctors, Nurses etc, it will remain with the Bikopo you are saying. Thus why you are having poor leadership. Provide jobs for them don’t arrest them for what is right to do.

    ….in Zed, where-ever you look you are likely to see an empty plastic container lying about, I can see among the jobless six is an environment graduate…engage your brains, come up and sell an idea how you would recycle these environmental nuisance….

  19. It goes further than Stella’s advice; it goes to the education system we inherited which preps our young people for jobs that we can ill afford to create. The systems we use are meant for an industrialized, production-oriented country. Ours that is based on eating and consuming only requires a few adjustments to first increase jobs in the area of service provision as well as off-shoring. That is part of the solution the paper tigers employed in trying to address this globally pressing problem.

Sale your ideas and if possible implement them and your will be paid for that. Govt still has an enabling environment for doing anything because I managed to make it in that same environment. Outsiders also see that enabling environment and for you it’s to protest after HH pays you. Shame indeed.

    • Even in 1976, when my sister and I finished our GSCE’s, the first thing my dad said was, before university a practical skill first. We were both enrolled onto Secretarial courses ( like a lot of posh girls in the West)….. Something top fall back on! My sister then took a training on the job with Buildings Branch to become a Draughts Woman and worked on Blue Prints for architectural designs. Her complaint was ………yes you’ve guessed it! A lot of Europeans were holding top jobs and they never got promoted as OUR gov’t favoured them!

  31. One can assume that most people commenting on this topic are graduates and the first thing you did after graduating was to find a job which you are dearly holding on to this day. It is very easy to talk from one ‘s perspective and not the other persons. I for one am curious to know why most of you even left this country if being an entrepreneur is as easy as you are putting it. It is understandable that the govt will not employ all the graduates in this country but it has a responsibility to ensure that they become entrepreneurs and that some are taken by the private sector.

    • You are somehow right. The reality is that times have changed; in the olden days, ZCCM and other companies would literary follow the students graduating from the school of Mines and Engineering and get everyone interested in working for the giant conglomerate. Those days are gone and the graduates now need to think outside the box to survive (or at least they should throw away the box so that they are not tempted to go back to it every time njala ikaba nyokola).

  32. The advice is OK. It all depends on how you define “Selling tomates”. It does not mean you have to parade yourself as a vendor on the market. With a bit of financial support and enthusiasm, you can become an organic expert in tomato cultivation, innovate and develop products like Heinz Tomato Kechup and excel to enerpreneurship heights.

Stella is right, when are the so called graduates to mention a few going to start thinking of doing something for them selves rather than always depending on government? like for instance Environmental health services is easy to start, there is a lot market in pest control issues which councils have failed to curry out. Do some peace work some where raise money to buy a sprayer and chemicals register a small firm to get a practicing certificate and start eradicating cockroaches, rats, mosquitoes, ants, termites and other pests in peoples homes and market your self to public. Money will not fall off from a tree do shoddy jobs and only concentrate on your motive you will make it some day.

I HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS AND EMPLOY PEOPLE AND HAVE SEEN THE CHALLENGES OF DOING BUSINESS IN ZAMBIA. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO GROW GROW YOUR BUSINESS BECAUSE OF THE ENVIRONMENT. BANKS DON’T GIVE OUT LOANS; NEED COLLATERAL. AND WITH GOVERNMENTS IT SEEMS LIKE YOU NEED TO BE CONNECTED.

  42. Fellow bloggers, the comments are skewed towards the impression that people don’t need a degree to succeed. No surprise because very few access UNZA.

    The point is UNZA should introduce entrepreneurship as a compulsory course at final year. This could go a long way.

    The fact that Zambia is full of illiterate businessmen explains the fact that we can’t manufacture anything. We can trade but we can’t manufacture. A degree goes further to enable you manufacture.

    Fellow graduates let’s go further than just buying and selling. Let’s go into value addition. Let’s manufacture. Then the world will begin to respect graduates.

    To the jobless six, don’t take the political way of doing things. Use your intelligence to get smarter, in your business.

    • CAN THEY MANUFACTURE WITHOUT CAPITAL? AND WHY DO WE HAVE DIFFERENT COURSES AT COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES? THERE IS PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION, SOCIAL FYAMUKATI, TEACHING AND MANY MORE. A TREND THAT I HAVE OBSERVED IN ZAMBIA IS THAT MANY OF THE SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES ARE FOR THOSE IN EMPLOYMENT AS THEY CAN GET A LOAN AND USE THEIR EMPLOYMENT AS ‘COLLATERAL’. OTHERS ARE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN IN EMPLOYMENT BEFORE.
      PEOPLE, GRADUATES INCLUSIVE, GO THE THE STREET AS A LAST RESORT. AND BY THE WAY WHAT IF ONE DOES NOT HAVE THE MINIMUM OF CAPITALS? LET US DEBATE THIS ISSUE WITHOUT THINKING OF POLITICS AND WE WILL SEE IT IN THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.
      LET US DO A RESEARCH, AND WE WILL FIND THAT SOMEBODY FIRST WORKED SOMEWHERE BEFORE VENTURING INTO REAL BUSINESS; NOT THE BUSINESS OF TATWIMA TATUWA.

  43. Stella Sata’s (SS) statement is very right. Well spoken young woman. She is pointing these six to real entrepreneurship.

    He advice, to my mind, may not mean literal selling of ‘tomatoes’ but for all job seekers to think beyond academic qualification.

    SS and lack of employment are challenging the government system to come up the alternative to self sustenance. But above all that academicians need to think beyond the box of waiting to be ’employed’

    SS does not need to apologise for waking up ‘the jobless six’ from slumber.

    If we had more voices like SS, Zambia would be a better place for graduates and non graduates.

But if you become this rebellious, which government will employ such a dull rebel…he will just end up being blacklisted in government…then who will employ him with public administration. So wise up and continue job hunting successfully. The people supporting you are those who always want to be against government even if they are well employed…

  45. those six *****s are irelevant, vincent chaile spent his entire life UNZA insulting fellow students, the same people he was insulting are now hr managers in top firms, how can he find work? i had an encounter with him, i am employed and if he applies for a job in my firm, i will not hesitate to wipe my dirty bottoms with his paperwok and flash it down.

    stella is right, when she says they should sell tomatoes, she is thinking big,not several tomatoes but they should venture into agri business and set up farms to feed their arses. the problem is Zambians think small, so they though about a bucket of tomatoes!!!!!!!!!!!!

    who says being at UNZA is entitlement to a job out there? create jobs for yourselves you slobs!!!!

  46. Stella is 100% correct whichever way you look at it. Just because you are a good hunter doesnt mean you should starve to death just because there is no game to hunt. Grow up imwe ba graduate. Jobs are there but you think you are too smart for those jobs. Learn to adapt and dont wait for someone else to shape your life. For once be inovative. Ask those that have migrated to other countries and find out the sort of jobs they have had to do to survive. Have a goal (being Manager or whatso ever) but before the dream job materialises do whatever it take to survive even if it means selling tomotoes, cleaning security etc.

  47. Sata and many of the politcians stole money from Kaunada and this is the reason the economy was on its knees in 1991. Today, this Stella, with her misplaced advice, most bloggers have become her cheerleader.This girl was raised with a big stolen silver spoon in her hand and is not the right person to give advice to the these boys, because her story is completely the opposite to theirs.These boys have shown courage,boldness and leadership to stand up against this useless government, which is alien to a typical Zambian. A typical Zambian is docile, timid and with a it is OK attitude.The reason why so many of you pipo don not agree them is simple. The wise King Soloman (Eccl:9-16)once said wisdom is better than mightiness, yet a poor man’s wisdom is despised and his words are not heeded.
