[Observer] Over last week, I spent a lot of adrenaline posting pictures of Bunnamwaya-Lweza road on social media for public attention. I call it a road for lack of a better word, you may as well call it a stretch of beautiful galleys and ditches. This road, stretching from Lweza to Kabuusu, is used by many to escape traffic jam on Entebbe road.

The celebrations that characterized social media once the announcement that President Edgar Lungu had declared Friday as a public holiday as an extension of Women’s Day celebrations that fall on Thursday March 8. Zambia is due to have another public day on Monday which is Youth Day accounting for a five day window off work for the government machinery. There is already a feeling that there are too many public holidays on our calendar with some people arguing that rather than celebrating holidays the public would do better to yearn to put in more shifts at work. There are already greater concerns about the work culture in the civil service. Many public service workers are notorious for late coming and knocking off early which robs government of quality labour. They are also notorious for screaming loudest for delayed salaries or any form of payments. Where their pay is delayed they easily devise alternative pay modes that further robes government of income through shortcuts oiled by corruption. There is every problem when you have business coming to a standstill in a country celebrating the declaration of a public holiday. While rest is good it could have been hoped that the move is more welcome for its stressing the importance of celebrating women and not an opportunity to escape work. For a country with an economy desperate to catch up with the rest of the world we should perhaps be more inclined to cut off worthless holidays and get down to work.
