It is dununa reverse-this time a real one. It is only months since President Lungu was re-elected, but it seems ages.I mean years of dancing dununa reverse! Unlike the Titanic, the PF boat is sailing without the Captain. President Sata is in tears as he witnesses his icibwato sink while Lungu is busy dancing dununa reverse in state house.
Ubwato nabubunda-unless something dramatic happens, only a mad person hopes that PF will sail to 2021 victory.Another reason I find discussions on whether Lungu qualifies to contest the next elections time-wasting.
President Lungu described himself as a very “good” Lawyer. Regardless of one’s reaction to his claim, it seems he forgot to add two critical qualities that have characterized his administration-a very good dancer, and a legendary comedian.
I realize PF cadres are in denial but the current situation in the nation makes one wonder which Lungu is ruling,a smart Lawyer, a great dancer or a comedian!
A smart lawyer would have realized that the PF is in muddy waters . It is ichishala of thieves, who steal from, and abuse citizens and then boast about it! A good Lawyer would have known that HH is a free citizen with rights to free movement and association. A good Lawyer would have known that the police exist to protect citizens and not to abuse them. A good Lawyer would have recognized that we are all Zambians regardless of our party affiliations. So why does Lungu allow insane people to override the rights of fellow citizens simply because the refuse to join dununa reverse?
President Lungu is a good dancer,only next to the legendary Amayenge dancer, the late Chanda Beu! Dancing is good, it makes us forget our plight! This is why the poorest crowd political rallies and dance dununa reverse or forward to impress the rich. They are interested in music and not policies. Lungu knows this and dancing dununa reverse was a great political strategy. Sadly, the music has stopped and it is now time to live in dununa reverse–and reverse our beloved country is going.
But who can blame a comedian for dancing without the music,it is what they do! Honestly, Chintelelwe is a better Mwine Mushi than Lungu. How can the President allow Davies Chama to promote corruption and lawlessness in a public speech and remain silent? The Zambian media is preoccupied with his call to PF cadres to takeover bus stations–but it is minimal when compared to his directions to give almost half of the plots to PF ward chairpersons and the displacement of UPND cadres selling in streets in Kabwe. This guy is insane. He is a criminal with a criminal mind–he belongs to Prison or Chainama mental hospital! But who cares–Lungu says the madman is going nowhere!
Then came the late delivery of farm inputs and armyworms. This situation is highly disturbing. Lungu would have resolved this problem if he was not busy dancing dununa reverse. Lungu was in power before August 2016. The fact that he did not put measures in place for agriculture shows how incompetent he is. If he had Zambia at heart, he would have made plans for farm inputs long before the elections.
Some people feel that Lungu’s agriculture policies are being sabotaged by some civil servants sympathetic to UPND,which may be true given the closeness of the elections. Civil servants are citizens with political views hence they have the right to support UPND or PF. But Lungu is the President for all Zambians,both PF and UPND. It is his duty to manage such situations and his failure to do so speaks to his incompetence.
Similarly, the comedy that characterizes the PF- Kambwili saga is unsurprising. I have no respect for Kambwili,he was the loudest mouthpiece of Lungu and biggest dununa dancer until fired! Regardless, Kambwili was not the only corrupt minister in PF. We only prosecute corruption when one is out of favor with Mwine Mushi. Ask Mutembo Nchito, Masebo, GBM, Meembe,the list is endless! Shouting Pankoloko or pabwato made them millionaires! When they refused to dance dununa reverse -so fast came their end. Heaven is our witness. We don’t need the ACC to know that Kambwili was not the only corrupt politician under the PF government. If we have to clean house, even Lungu himself will be in prison together with all his dununa dancers.
Ifintu ni Lungu and Dununa reverse are dead slogans -come 2021 people will dance dununa reverse when they mean Forward. I pray that HH will not be fooled by the dance!
