The culture of not responding to accusations of public interest in the HH administration confirms my characterization as a New Dark Regime. By not answering questions, the HH Presidency has chosen to insult us by refusing accountability. When we asked HH and his administration to respond to the KBN audio in which the President was directly implicated in corrupting our democracy, the regime has refused to speak. Now is the issue of torture and the torture chambers being leveled against the dark regime; no comment. This lugubrious foolishness must come to an end. As Zambians we deserve to know; is it true or not that our fellow citizens are being tortured in our name? Kajoba and his staff should accept or deny this solemn accusation.
The refusal to answer questions of public interest is not only authoritarian, but despotic. Democratic governance demands accountability and transparency–the two values the UPND government lacks. HH and his minions forget that democratic power is illusional; you can only have it for a while. Unless they all commit suicide once the cult leader is gone, Kajoba and his fellow criminals will surely end up in similar situations. And it may be in 2026; Kabwata seems to suggest.
I am surprised that columnists didn’t explain to the god of Zambia that the Kabwata election showed that Bally worshipers are not as enthusiastic as they were in August 2021. Moreover, they are also dwindling. That the UPND candidate won shouldn’t dismiss the truth that the majority of the people of Kabwata voted for the opposition as opposed to the UPND. If we put all opposition candidates together, the UPND lost that election. This is the opposite of what we saw in August. Moreover, given that the UPND has the national purse and the President employed his office, resources and corruption in that election, the Opposition has reason to hope. Bally won’t fix it anymore; over 50% of Kabwata residents said. Does Kabwata speak to what is to come once more and more Bally worshipers see the light? Will his vampires face the truth in shame, or choose to fight it out? And will those who have seen the light continue to be misrepresented as among the 2.8 million who sold their souls to the devil?
I feel pity for HH. He is a disheveled President of his self-created terrorist network. Ballyterrorists know HH as a Liar in Chief; thus when he orders them to obey the laws, his worshipers respond by praising the very acts that landed those thugs in police hands. As was the case in Kabwata, Kasama and Mansa, they are proud to disrupt communities, police stations and courts dressed in the UPND attire in peremptory solidarity with thugs as opposed to HH. Moreover, they are proud to release public statements of solidarity with thugs in direct contrast to what Baal just said. One truth they all know, when it comes to truth, Baal won’t bring fire down; his threats against his own vampires are appeasements to donors. In darkness, however, Baal courts their supplications. Hence these vampires are at liberty to insult and threaten police officers. Such demeaning harassment and intimidation of officers, these thugs are proud to post on social media to impress their god.
I am not surprised at the thinking of worshipers of Baal. How can one count HH’s lies one by one and remain unchanged? If you add lies from his cronies, darkness is the light of UPND politicians! A single ray of light over this regime would send them into panicking out of shame for having undressed themselves of the truth. In an effort to deflect from his own corruption, HH is breathing fire like “the devil looking for someone to devour.” Who else is the right victim but PF officials. Continue announcing new arrests and raids to keep the tag of “fighting corruption” alive in the memories of donors, winning cases is not the goal. In short, trial by the court of public opinion. In so doing, his EGOMANIAC pride is appeased
The biblical book of Judges speaks today as it did then: “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” So is the UPND. The Kajoba headed Ballypolice knows nothing but imbecile and childish loyalty. Like dogs, their raids are acts of worship of the sacred Master. Bally worshipers know this; hence, the Police they insult, as HH and Kajoba watch. After all, they know that HH and his inner circle are making it big–they are accumulating millions in allowances from his endless trips. But they also know that retribution, as opposed to justice, is the Kajoba evil agenda. When HH says arrest cadres and ensure they are treated well, Kajoba raises his tail. When Baal demands the blood of his opponents, this shameless man tortures innocent persons as libations to Baal. Yet torture of suspects is a crime under international law.
Kajoba will surely pay, but will HH be held to account? I can only pray so.
