NO MORE CHARITY SIR

Feature Politics NO MORE CHARITY SIR

So technically we have institutionalized begging now in Zambia. Power has shifted from institutions to individuals.

President Lungu’s government has failed to buy a bus for The Copperbelt University but the man Mr. Lungu happens to have enough personal money to buy the bus for the school for free. Mr. Lungu today has so much money that he can even help the government he works for. Smart guy.

The government does not have a social system to help the poorest people in our communities but the president has enough money than the government he works for his own empowerment program.
Social media today is full of pictures of Zambians who are suffering from different diseases and are appealing for help because there is no hope in the existing institutions. It’s funny because when president Lungu became President, this country had enough money for its programs and president Lungu didn’t. Today, President Lungu has so much money and the government doesn’t. Is this an example of financial Osmosis? The movement of public money from the higher concentration of taxpayers money to the lower concentration of the private pockets of politicians.
So now we have disturbing pictures of our people in hospitals and bedrooms sick on social media appealing to the mercy of the president because he has money that the government doesn’t have. They are sick and desperately looking for help which this government cannot provide.

So you take away the power from institutions and empower yourselves to do what should be done by institutions. It is embarrassing and shameful. People have become more deserving of charity now and have lost confidence in demanding for what rightfully belongs to them.

The president must be reminded that he is not a sugar dady but a Republican President whose responsibility is not to dangle money to the vulnerable people in our community but to find solutions to the problems we are faced with. His job is to build institutions that should serve us.

  1. when late Fredrick Chiluba was handed a BMW car by a south African company, he was taken to task by the then vibrant post newspaper journalist–things like reasons why he had to be rewarded with such a gift…

    So what am saying here is that–well educated people should be asking-‘who is the main financier toward all these gifts from the top and by the top’—How do you account for all such…and where is the tax man in all this..

  2. Excellent observations that should make every well meaning Zambian to ponder about. The President has more money than the Government. The Government institutions and the citizens are at the mercy of the President….what a craft to enslave the country.

  3. So Pilato when you run away to South Africa did you use your own money or you were paid for. Lungu can make donations were ever he wants. Just tell you little go HH to share some of the privatization money also.

  4. Lungu has corrupted and destroyed all systems of governance in Zambia…..

    He is lazo numero uno,

    You don’t even have to look at the corrupted financial gifts he and his cronies dish out ,

    He is supposed to be a lawyer, just look at how rotten our judiciary is with his heavely handed clamp down on democratic freedoms….

  5. Lungu is spreading a bad culture of dependency/bribery and institutionalizing political power as moneygrab instead of seeing public office as serving the people.

  6. This is why the Bible say “when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do on the streets, so that they will be praised by people..” Matthew 6:2

    There is absolutely NO NEED to switch on the camera when doing something good unless you have an ulterior motive, otherwise known as personal gain.

  7. I like the word Financial Osmosis. Thats exactly what has happed. Now even PF cadres have more money than the government institution. Only a fool can support what is currently happening.

  8. WELL STATED PILATO !!!!!!!!!!! WELDONE
    THE QUESTION IS WHAT DOES LUNGU KNOW OR NOT KNOW
    HE IS FED INFO BY HIS INNER CIRCLE AND TAKES THAT AS THE GOSPEL TRUTH
    I THOT KAIZER ZULU WAS A PUPPET ON A STRING BUT NOW LEANING TOWARDS LUNGU IS THE PUPPET
    LISTENING AND DANCING TO THE ADVISE OF HIS INNER CIRCLE
    WILL WE EVER KNOW I DOUBT ???
    HOPEFULLY WHEN VOTED OUT THE PIGS WILL SQUEAL !!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Pilato the upnd cadre who refuses to be proud of the part he supports.ifyamba muntu uyu. The only beggar is you who goes to bend over for hh in exchange for dollars. Ch1kala chako

  10. Mr. Kaiser Zulu, You seem to have the audacity to insult any one who opposes President ECL or Corrupt /tranny PF. I would like to warn and remind you that Zambia is not President ECL’s nor PF’s personal/ party farm. You and your PF
    lot have reduced Zambia to a poverty stricken colony of China. HH will have to institute Life Style Audit on you, President ECL and all PF leaders /cadres. Enough corruption and arrogance.
