    I was in Serenje last week on a family visit. I took time to see some places of interest one of which was the Chinese built Tazara Railway facility. The once gigantic undertaking for Zambia and only a step away from its golden jubilee is a sorry spectacle ... at least in Serenje! One cannot believe the degradation and the lack of care Serenje Tazara station has gone through over the years. One has to be there to believe ...

    Please empower your people how long are you going to undermine your people. Stop depending on foreigners. Stop enslaving the people of Zambia liberate your people. And which Land are you going to give those Chinese? You give Land easily to foreigners but your people get Land with sweat. Wait and see.

    Minister Dora, see to it that the CHINESE Investors be HUMANE in their dealings. Not bringing GOD FORSAKEN PRODUCTS TO ZAMBIA AND FEEDING US FOODS THAT THE CHINESE THEMSELVES CANNOT FEED ON.(CHICKENS,FISH BEEF ) to name a few. ZAMBIA IS A COUNTRY WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE RED BLOOD FLOWING IN THEIR VEINS ,JUST LIKE YOU CHINESE PEOPLE. We are open to development and progressive projects that will be of benefit to the Zambian people as well as bring you the Chinese people profits. Please Minister Dora, also have the Chinese teach the Zambian people how they do their work. So that in future, the ethnic Zambians can take over.

    IN AS MUCH AS WE WANT INVESTMENT, PLEASE AVOID GIVING HUGE CHUNKS OF LAND. LAND IS THE ONLY RESOURCE THAT WE HOLD AS OUR INHERITANCE AS ZAMBIANS. WE CAN GIVE A PORTION BUT STILL RETAIN OWNERSHIP. BY THE WAY, DID U KNOW THAT IN CHINA, NO SINGLE CHINESE HAS A TITLE DEED FOR LAND? ALL LAND BELONGS TO GOVERNMENT

    Only by energising, educating & empowering indigenous Zambian people can any real progress be made, the Chinese, Japanese, Europeans etc will always have their own agendas, and the best we can hope for from them is that their agendas tally & augment ours, if not... Let foreigners add value to our agenda(s), for too long Zambians have been slaving away at helping "basamunda" achieve theirs, lets open our eyes, so far empowering foreigners at the expense of locals hasn't ever worked anywhere in the world, and never will!...
