Political commentator Laura Miti says the current crop of Zambians would never have managed to liberate the country from colonial rule. Miti, who seemingly is upset by the attitude of Zambians failing to pressure opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema’s continued incarceration, says the country would still have been ruled by colonial masters upto the coming of Jesus Christ. “…if today’s Zambians were the ones we needed to end colonialism, awe mwandi nga balituteka bamwisa mpaka ukwisa kwa yesu [oh, no…whites would have been ruling us upto the coming of Jesus Christ]. “The way we butt kiss government, we would have been busy writing papers justifying why it was right for blacks to buy meat from a hole in the wall.” Miti has been critical of the Patriotic Front government. She has not spared President Lungu’s leadership and has widely condemned opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema’s arrest. “We hear our judges can wake up in the night to expedite matters when circumstances are right. They can also keep an accused in cells for 41 days on random charges,” she writes on social media. On Monday, Miti complained about the delay of Hichilema’s case. “HH case palmed off to new Magistrate as Simusamba who should have given judgement today [Monday] is said to be ill. “New Magistrate adjourns case to Wed[nesday]. Can they let the man go already. No amount of adjourning the case will create evidence that will convict him of treason kano sinkani yaku Mongu. Playing musical judges while someone is in cells – wrong.” Hichilema comes up before Magistrate Betty Malupenga today.
