Dear Editor,
The background of my brief discourse is the partial solar eclipse that happened on 1st September 2016. The silence of those who have previously abused very natural atmospheric and astronomical phenomenon to advance their selfish ends rings loudest at this time opportune time. As physical light is best appreciated in darkness, like nothing else a solar eclipse raises our appreciation of the important role that light plays in our lives. The level of intellectual illumination in the discussion below, like solar eclipses, comes but a few times in our brief lives, so please pay close attention.

The progress of evil only requires that good people remain silent and by that silence become primary accomplices to the ongoing evil. Allow me therefore to vent my spleen.

In total disregard to the rule of law and the ongoing election petition Zimbabwean dictator Robert Gabriel Mugabe has congratulated Zambia’s home grown oppressor Edgar Chagwa Lungu. Let us not even mention Uganda’s rectal itch who was reported to be trimming his moustache at Mfuwe Lodge in readiness for the eagerly awaited presidential inauguration of his counterpart oppressor.

There are those who are either deceived or deliberately blind to the real nature of the allegedly pro-poor policies of Zambia’s ruling political party the Patriotic Front (PF). Even to those lacking peripheral vision including professional con men such as T.B. Joshua, the current state of Zimbabwe’s economy (presided over the last few decades by one Bob Mugabe and his ZANU PF, sister political party to Zambia’s Patriotic Front) will quickly and accurately prophecy where Zambia will be sooner than most people realise after the epic fiscal ineptitude driven by wanton greed and selfishness that is the lasting legacy and future promise of Zambia’s current gang of clueless misleaders. Soon as in before the end of this year 2016, Zambia’s contractual obligations to the IMF to remedy the financial illiteracy of it’s bungling misleaders will despite Amos Chanda’s self deception brutally kick in. Brutal as in the stripping of all subsidies with resultant fuel prices of no less ZMK18 per litre and no less than 100 percent increase in the price of Zambia’s staple food, mealie meal. In simple vernacular, a bag of 25Kg mealie meal will cost at least ZMK150.

Sorry, did Edgar Chagwa Lungu and side kick Mama Inonge Wina conveniently forget to tell you this in their heavily state funded campaigns? Let me apologise on their behalf and in mitigation add that ECL did mention something or other about making some painful decisions. Your pain, not his or that of Davies Chama. Chishimba Kambwili will be whistling his favourite tune ‘Dununa reverse’.

The contractual obligations ECL et al signed on your behalf will engage regardless of the outcome of the presidential election petition, so keep that pointing finger ever ready. Index finger, not middle finger please. For those who have any doubts about the veracity of the gospel according to ECL as administered by yours truely the IMF, please refer to the reliable Bloomberg website. If still in doubt, please ask ECL in person to tabulate the financial pain he has lovely prepared for you. I will not be responsible for any bodily harm that may arise from this encounter.

In closing, you may dear reader be wondering what the cause of our prophesied pain is. Systems, not individuals, ECL and previous fellow Zambian presidents without exception being victims of our very poorly thought-out constitution.

Unfortunately, the revised and very newly updated Zambian constitution 2016 besides the paltry addition of an elected running mate, does not sufficiently address the overblown powers of the Office of the President. The powers that the office currently holds are a sad hangover from the days when Zambia fought for the political independence of our neighbours.

In a state of emergency, which is essentially one ‘dununa’ next to a state of war, it is necessary and indeed an obligation in the interest of national security that the head of state appoint people who are loyal to them at a very personal level. In the current (pseudo-)democratic dispensation with no physical enemies in sight, the exercise of these powers is an abuse of the office which every former Zambian president without exception has graciously embraced to further their own personal interests disregarding the interests of the people.

And until this defect in the system is fixed, no matter which presidential candidate we place in State House, no matter how well meaning they may be or how many churches they build or how many ministers of religion they appoint, no matter how humble, being only human they will inevitably and predictably fall prey to the intoxication of power and all its trappings. Given a choice between personal gain and the interests of the people, few mortals have made the wise choice. So basically we spent loads of money to produce a defective document.

This is the bed we have ourselves made. Let is now enjoy sleeping in it.

Yours sincerely,

A very patriotic Zambian who did not vote.

    • Bitterness and doom prophecy will never win your preferred candidate any votes. Just sober up and accept that ECL won by the majority vote. Also accept that HH did well and has improved. If you continue insulting and cursing innocent citizens some of whom do not have access to your insults is just cursing yourselves more. Whoever could have won would not have avoided the increase in cost of living. HH was not going to offload his wealth to anybody free of charge. So sober up and come to your senses to accept the situation. Denial is medically fatal.

  3. Of course every nation has problems. The leaders u are talking about have policies in place to deal with the challenges u are talking about. I can assure that this country will deal with the current external indebtedness decisively. U choose to be very pessimistic because the leader of your preference has flopped for the umpteenth time. Don’t be cheated that the country will fail. U are the biggest failure because u want to use the language u don’t understand. Stop hating and hurting!

The Eurobond Billions has been consumed not invested, without any thought as to how to repay. The President Elect who is only good for dancing and drinking aspires to be Bob Mugabe, the self proclaimed King of Zimbabwe. Corruption is rife, load shedding is back, the list is endless…….

      You mother fuc.ker! You are living comfortably even as a TOILET CLEANER in the USA, which is not your country of course! Toilet cleaners like you in Zambia are the ones feeling the effects of Load shedding; With unemployed children; Cant afford school fees for their children; High cost of living; with Brutal killings by Lungu; etc.
      Why dont you go and experience all this sh.it yourself instead of talking from sidelines!! You are such a mo.ron thinking with your Ar.se! Put that sh.it in your grandmother’s Ar.se and some of it back in your pan.yo; you Devil!!

  4. Ouch! The only thing missing is the mic drop as you walk away with partial eclipse in background, hee hee hee. Rectal itch description of a President is hilarious. Brutal, humourous and anonymous. I am guessing the writer has resigned his or herself to five more years of ED.

  9. Well said. The original quote you have paraphrased is-

    The only thing needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing

    And you sir, I applaud as one of those few that have taken the time to speak out with veracity and good intentions.

    Now it Is the duty of those few to stand up for the truth and justice before our whole Nation is irretrievably lost to barbarism and evil.

    • @ Masau Actually did not “win by the majority vote”. That is why there is a case before the Constitutional Court. The “result” announced by Chuulu for the ECZ is fraudulent and invalid. According to the ECZ, the number of votes scored by Edgar Lungu was 1,860,877 and those scored by Hakainde Hichilema was 1,760,347. In percentage terms, this means ECL achieved 49.21% and HH 46.55%, meaning that the 50% plus 1 threshold was not attained. The ECZ decided to manipulate the percentages by illegally and arbitrarily subtracting about 85,000 votes that their staff have subjectively classified as rejected ballots. This differentiation is one which is wide open to abuse and misuse. It should be immediately corrected and never be allowed to recur in future elections in Zambia .It is an…

  13. Man the metaphors (say rectal or more accurately anal itch) were humorous. Quite seriously many Zambians today have forgotten that we have been through this path before. Buchizya Kaunda Kenneth borrowed until Zambia nearly dropped dead. Mwanawasa came to reverse the near-death of Zambia and PF has done the real Dununa reverse. The I can attest to this having lived through SAP and I have a bad taste in the mouth right now. The time for reckoning is not too far and brace yourselves for a painful crush. Only then shall we learn.

    • WHAT MEN OF GOD NAIMWE?? Tulo so in this day & age!!
      T.B. Joshua, & his fellow “Men of Gold” have conned poor Africans who wallow in abject poverty, ignorance & disease, while the “Men of Gold” in midst of njala, enjoy a life of luxury & priviledge.
      This is the sole reason You mafirika are NEVER going to develop. TOO MUCH TULO!
      Even Colonialism with its evils, was better, than evils of African so called Men of God, coz at least during colonialism our countries were clean, & functioning, & to some extent they shared the wealth. One just has to look @ photos of Lusaka, Kitwe, Ndola, Livingstone, or even Harare during federation days. You will see @ clean cities where the living standard was better than today.
      T.B. Joshua et al, & fellow snakes, NEVER share the wealth!!. Diseaes,…

      Disease, povery, ignorance is all you will find amongst the majority conributors to the wealth of T.B. Joshua, & his fellow snakes, who maquerade as “Gods helpers”
      Must also be noted, Africans can easily be conned into voting a certain way, coz all you need is like Joshua, proclaimation, you are humble, & God fearing, even open up religious ministries, despite the hard evidence of embezzleing, & wanton corruption.
      JUST MENTION GOD, & THE DOCILE AFRICAN WILL TAKE LEAVE OF HIS SENSES.

  16. What a stup1d waste of time writing something that is inspired by dark forces. The author of this article must be insane just like HH and GBM.
    Look, the ConCourt has made a very grave blunder and our silence on this should not be mistaken for weakness, if this stup1dity and nosense of the useless petition is not throw out by 10 hours on Monday, those Concourt judges will regret having been born, watch da space.
    We voted for President Lungu and he won and therefore needs to be inaugurated by Wednesday without fail. Why should the whole lot of us Zambians be held at ransom by a loser called HH?

      This time around bwana Zambia has no bonds to sell to the EU or US meaning the cake will shrink even further so that only those very close to Lungu will benefit. While all you lot zealously chanting dununa reverse will remain holding on to D reverse hopes with nothing to eat.

      Those who support UPND are prepared for all this because and wont be shocked at all.
