Archive photo It is far too disheartening that as a people,we are taking part in violent conduct towards each other for reasons of having different political opinions and beliefs.The reason for democracy is that every one should have their civil liberties and freedoms to have an opinion,and to believe in a common party or personal ideology. It is entirely sad that PATRIOTIC FRONT members unleashed violence on NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS members injurying but a few.According to various media houses,and with regards to the statement released by the Police spokes person Theresa Katongo ,NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS members were arrested to the exclusion of PATRIOTIC FRONT members.Where’s the justice behind letting people from the ruling party always go free? It is not right,lucks fairness and has all the qualities of oppression from a ruling regime.The charade of causing chaos due to ideological differences is the practice of barbaric and morally starved individuals,that need to be straightened and well informed of the core tenets of a democratic society. Furthermore,a society in which every opposition is labeled a criminal by default and still calls itself a democratic society is hypocritical and somewhat shows shades of a despotic ruling regime as has been the case in Zambia. It is a humble appeal that we leave in peace irrespective of our political differences and respect the democratic process by which our nation was founded.

Castrol Kafweta With all its wealth, Zambia is still among the world’s 20 poorest countries and yet some of you claim you have a working government with a functioning President Edgar Chagwa Lungu! Are you being serious? We need a leader who will work towards the removal of Zambia from the world’s 20 poorest countries. The current leadership is not worth gratulation and they don’t deserve any credits because they seem not to have proper directions. They don’t have any ideal objectives for this country! Their mission and goals is to ensure the time they will be leaving office, Zambia’s wealth will be depleted at least by 75% leaving many Zambian people poor than before. Sometimes I wonder if I hear people like Bowman Lusambo and [President] Edgar Lungu claim that they are here to work for the people of Zambia. The question that lingers in my mind is, What have they worked? Where have they worked? Who are they working for? And what have they achieved for the country so far when the same people they claim to work for are still failing to take their children to school? People are living on less than a dollar daily, majority employees are still getting K500, K800,K950,and K1500 being the highest monthly salary for the ordinary Zambian working in private companies and organizations? Our people are subjected to hard labor and yet they are paid low. No one speaks for them because no one cares. Our people are terribly languishing in poverty when our poor leaders are busy misusing, misapplying, and mismanaging the people’s resources and wealth meant to reduce poverty and better the living standard of our people? The Zambian situation really touches my heart and when I realize it, it pains me a lot. Something urgent needs to be done otherwise people will start dying of famine just like they are dying of a preventable disease like cholera and other curable and preventable diseases. The so called leaders are not even ashamed to see people’s lives being lost to preventable and curable diseases. All they know is to lobby money from international organizations! The money which they have never worked for. Useless leaders!! EDITOR’S NOTE: The views presented by the author are his own and do not represent the opinion of Zambia Reports.
