A cable of Zambian crooks that has specialised in auctioning Zambian community properties to Chinese investors has moved in on one of the most cherished sports complex in the capital – the Lusaka Central Sports – in Longacres. The Lusaka Central Sports club was donated to members by a white family called the Osrins in 1956. They put a caveat for perpetuating Sports development on the donated land. However, a cable of crooks led by James Matale who sits on the board for Jihai Investments Corporation Zambia Limited has given away the club. Matale is also an employee of the same Jihai Investments. In collaboration with others, Matale has signed an agreement that committed the club’s land to the said developers (Jihai) without authority of the club members . The group, presumably after receiving huge amounts of kickbacks, further ammended minutes of a meeting to reflect that the matter was tabled at the Annual General meeting. Matale serves as a senior member and Trustee of the Lusaka central sports club. The said agreement was to put up sports infrastructure but it turns out they are just building shops and offices.

Minister of Religious Affairs Godfridah Sumaili has urged the country to go back to “Ubuntu” after youths from the ruling PF and opposition UPND attacked each other at a grave site last Saturday. Reverend Sumaili condemned the incident saying the youths stooped too low to engage in a bloody fight at a place considered sacred by Zambians. Both the UPND and the PF have condemned the incident even though members of the opposition claim their rivals from the ruling camp stooped too low to plan a well thought out cold blooded attack at a place considered sacred in Zambia and other African setup. And Reverend Sumaili whose Ministry gives the Zambian Nation guidance on Moral and Spiritual matters says the fracas at a grave site is evident of lost values among Zambians. Reverend Sumaili says UBUNTU, an African term that depicts oneness, peace, love and unity seems to have been lost among Zambians especially among the youths. “It is unfortunate what happened, where we had attacks at the grave yard! It is very very unfortunate because culturally we are a Bantu people and Ubuntu is in us. It is our culture that we love one another, it’s our culture that we respect one another; even in death culturally we respect the body of the dead! What Zambia needs to do is to go back to Ubuntu where we have respect for one another, ubuntu is respecting the elderly, ubuntu is being hospitable and this ubuntu is embedded in us,” says reverend Sumaili. Reverend Sumaili added that her Ministry wants to see a Zambia where all individuals are embracing one another regardless of their, sex, tribe or political affiliation. She said it is time Zambians went back to the basics and started treating each other with love and respect without looking at their political affiliation. And Reverend Sumaili has called on the youth in the country to awaken to the fact that they are leaders today and tomorrow. She wondered how the older generation would pass on a Burton of leadership to a youth that does not realise their worth and possible contribution to the unity and development of their country. “How can we have leaders (Youths) who have no heart for each other, you know; (Leaders) who have no respect for the elderly who are supposed to pass on wisdom to them? So my advice to them is that they must look after Zambia very well as it is special! It’s a beautiful country, it’s a blessed country,” says Reverend Sumaili. Reverend Sumaili has asked all citizens to guard jealously the Blessing of peace and unity that God has given them. The Minister was adding her voice in condemning the fracus that took place at memorial park where youths from PF and UPND clashed living several mourners injured. A bus which had brought PF mourners was also burnt to ashes. The post Reverend Sumaili Urges Ubuntu appeared first on Zambia Reports.
