MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakacinda says information vaccum between the ruling party and its citizens is providing ammunition to the opposition to spread falsehoods about the country’s current political situation. Nakacinda says the rule of law should be applicable to all citizens regardless of their position in society. He said the call to have UPND leader Hakained Hichilema released unconditionally was misplaced as the law should be followed to the later without exclusions. He added that the HH case puts to the test the belief in the rule of law by both the PF and the UPND. He said the rule of law should encompass all citizens hence the country should not be seen to tolerate impunity from anyone. Speaking when he featured on Joy FM’s The Platform radio program on Thursday morning, Nakacinda said the information gap between the Government and citizens has led to speculations on important national issues. He urged the Presidency to ensure that it communicates effectively through the holding of regular Presidential press conferences and that Government through the spokesperson should also be clear on the way it communicates to the public. He said it is the ineffectiveness of those in government and the ruling party which is leading to people treading on emotions as opposed to dealing with the real issues on the ground. Nakacinda said the Chief Government spokesperson should help the nation by explaining, informing and providing answers to the people on matters relating to the governance of the country while the Secretary General of the ruling party should clearly also be able to defend the Government. He added that misconceptions will continue as long as the government and the ruling party do not provide clear explanations and provide answers to issues on the ground. And Nakacinda said the people saying the country has become a dictatorship are saying so to advance their personal ambitions at the expense of Zambians. He said such people are not patriotic to the nation and not fit to be leaders because good leaders should put the people first. On the judiciary, the MMD CEO lamented the lack of trust and support saying the judiciary is suffering because the opposition has turnished the image of the institution. He said the Judiciary is not run by zombies who just sit and take orders from State House but that it is run by qualified individuals who have been appointed on merit. He urged Zambians not to put in office a party that has continued to disregard institutions of governance such as the judiciary with their belief that the executive interferes with other arms of governance because they would go into office believing that they should do the same. On the divisions in the church on the governance of the country, Nakacinda regretted that the church which is supposed to be non partisan had multiple voices on a single issue. He said the church is a parent which should have a uniform voice on issues affecting the country and that it should exhaust all channels of consultation before communicating their view and position. Nakacinda also said UPND lawyers were causing anxieties in the country due to their failure to advise their clients on clear matters. He said the UPND lawyers were so rigid on issues that they do not take advise from anyone. The post Call To Release Hichilema Misplaced, says Nakachinda appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Hello admin, Kindly post for me this sensitive issue for public opinion as I earnestly seek sincere and mature advice from both men and women of this group. I’m a man aged 32, looking forward to a perfect and health marital relationship after your sincere and most honest advice. Some three years ago, I married a wife of my youth, a woman I loved so much! Unfortunately, Just after 7 months of our staying together in marriage as husband and wife, the unimaginable happened. I lost my job, my business dramatically crumbled down and within the space of two months I was left with nothing, (including shelter cause I couldn’t manage paying rent anymore.) It was from such a situation that I and (my wife being pregnant at that time) decided to take her at my parent’ place to be kept there for a while as I needed to leave for another town in pursuit of something to do in order to sustain my family, but fortunately enough, my wife’ parents said; considering her condition, she can’t be left at her in-laws. Just bring her here so we can take care of her, as you find anything to do you will come back for her, she’s your wife. It was very kind of them, “I said to my parents in-law.” I took off and spent some good months in another town while coming in intervals and sending them any little I gathered cause my wife and (daughter now) were my everything and I did anything to support them. After a few months later, I noticed my wife started drifting. Communication started dwindling, no call or text if I don’t do so. I began to worry, I wondered why things began going that way. I asked her about it, and all she told me was ‘I have nothing to say.’ That went on until I traveled to see her in person, for sure I found my wife so cold! She couldn’t talk as we did back then, that’s how I went back. Now, one day I received a phone call from someone they have differed with from birth complaining to me about my wife’ behavior, she said please talk to your wife: your wife has been insulting me publicly! And said she was not happy about it. So after a while, about two months later, its when I sat my wife down and asked her about what I was told, OMG!!! I was so shocked how my wife got back on me with lots of insults! She said from today and right now this marriage is over! And am going to tell my parents about this, that you are talking to my enemy, our family enemy. I mean it!! I thought my wife was just so hot tempered at that time so I gave her some time to cool down but to my surprise my wife was growing hotter and hotter! The next thing after some 4 months later was a meeting called by her parents in which I was insulted by her parents to the moon and back! It was so clear that my wife had changed for sure. From that time on, I’ve been pleading that we get back together but my wife has stood her ground that its over just like that! I’ve tried my very best to apologize but all to no avail, as I speak its already two years ago. Our marriage is civil, we can only divorce via high court. I’ve asked her to legally divorce me if really she’s made up her mind but she refuses and say you go if you want your freedom, as for me, I will go when ever I feel ready. Country men and women, this issue is chewing me up! what must I do? I truly love my wife and wants her back but am now getting concerned on how possible it can be for someone who truly loves you to harden their heart like she has done? What step must I take now? Kindly help. Thank you all! MM The post Letter: My Wife Has Suddenly Changed; She Is So Disrespectful appeared first on Zambia Reports.
