Zambians must not be silent, but voice out against corruption and all forms of oppression in the country, the Organisers of the Yellow Card campaign have said.
Laura Miti, one of the campaigners said K6.1 billion of Zambia’s money has been stolen, and while this theft is a crime, Zambians being silent about it is an even bigger crime.
Ms. Miti has reminded Zambians that corrupt politicians are the biggest criminals of all, because corruption is a weapon of mass destruction and mass poverty.
She said through corruption, thousands die in hospitals without medicine, others die from accidents because of undone or poorly done roads and infrastructure.
Ms. Miti said through corruption, thousands are denied access to decent water and sanitation, thousands more languish in poverty because they are denied basic human rights – education and job/business opportunities to improve their lives.
She said for this and many more crimes, including the authorities denial of their freedom of expression to hold a peaceful protest at Arcades today, Zambians must all rise in solidarity, show the PF the #YellowCard, tomorrow.
