Since the COVID-19 global crisis started, some of us had decided to put aside our concerns about how the PF government have looted our public resources, and further undermined democracy in Zambia so that we first deal with the crisis at hand of this virus as one unified citizenry.
It is however, difficult to understand these people’s thinking capabilities. The way they are handling the issues it is like they are the opposition and are not in government.
We have seen the opposition leaders such as Mr Hakainde Hichilema and all the other alliance partners behaving in a very mature and responsible manner towards issues citizens are struggling to come to grips with. All I can say is thank you to all Opposition leaders for this great gesture and for leading the way.
Sometimes I ask myself so many questions that I end up asking God how we arrived at this mess of a so called leadership because there is just too much of mediocrity.
The statement, for example, by PF central Committee member and media director Kebby Mbewe and Sunday Chanda respectively where the duo claimed that a total lock down is unattainable as it will benefit the rich. They further added that the PF government cannot betray the poor who depend on handouts. As though this mockery wasn’t enough, Mbewe and Chanda went on to say the PF government is very much aware of the situation and that Edgar Lungu’s leadership is in control. What idiocy!
It is very unfortunate to have such a retrogressive group of play boys who are not in touch with the realities on the ground. Can these confused boys, tell the world who has brought Zambians to the position of being hand to mouth, can they also tell us who these people they call rich are, because the last time I checked it was Mr Lungu who named himself “ukwete akasaka kandalama”. Can this Mbewe chap and the confused Sunday Chanda tell us how president Lungu amassed all his wealth overnight if not by looting our public coffers.
Today every one in PF government stinks of money, yet Zambians are swimming in poverty.
The financial year ending 2019, Lusaka City Council made K13,626,242.12 and out of all this money only K60,000.00 was accounted for by the PF government under Mr Lungu. This is what we mean when you hear us telling you how corrupt the PF are. These are moneys that could have assisted in the crisis we have at hand. If we are to add on what PF cadres share in markets and bus stations, you will see how much money we have lost.
Mbewe and Chanda should not be dumb, by ignoring the fact that the mess Zambia is going through now it is due to this PF incompetent and irresponsible government that has no single leader with a vision for the future of our beautiful country.
PF came with a 90 days slogan, but they have been in power for ten years now, the question is what have they done for Zambians? Shamelessly, these two cadres, Mbewe and Chanda are now confessing that they have caused Zambians to live in a hand to mouth economy.
The Sunday Chanda and Kebby Mbewe rantings are a clear indication that PF has no leadership even for its own party and how can they preside over our nation? This is why Zambians should think twice when voting next year. PF have failed every one including those who use to believe in them are now fed up.
Fellow citizens I urge you to vote wise next year. I know the elections will be bloody due to the PF political violence but united we stand and the dictator can fall if we all work together as one people who want the best for our nation.
These PF leaders are making all this noise because they stink corrupt money they have stolen from we Zambians.
Can you imagine that they are conducting a witch hunt, when all nations faced with this virus are helping their citizens with business to thrive by cutting taxes but alas in Zambia PF leadership through Dora Siliya and Mr Lungu are persecuting Private entities such as Prime Television so that their criminal activities are concealed. All these are pure signs of a failed regime.
Their continued politicking when the nation needs all Zambians to put our minds together and fight COVID-19 is evidence enough that we have greedy and self centred human beings feasting on our moneys without thinking of our well being as Citizens.
They don’t care even if Zambians die of COVID-19 and it matters less as long as they are in office and have their criminal activities against citizens covered it is ok.
Just Like Governance activist Changala noted on Wednesday, that next years elections will be violent with Mr Lungu in charge.
PF government knows that their relationship with voters got terminated long ago and they are now thriving on abusing the Police, ECZ and the judiciary to prolong their stay in power.
My advice to all PF leaders is that can we put all political differences aside please and fight COVID-19. We need to save lives than making baseless arguments such as those that Kebby Mbewe and Sunday Chanda made out of their usual ignorance on issues affecting our people.
