Even in the most advanced nations with advanced existing infrastructure and monitoring capabilities, their governments are terrified of COVID-19 and everyone has put their differences aside and are fighting it tooth and nail to save lives.
To the contrary, in Zambia the ruling party has seized the opportunity to promote it’s image in tandem with the name of a deadly disease whose cure is still no where in sight. Without any sense of guilt, they have procured and are promoting the production of thousands of masks branded PF.
Where is their conscience? Where are their ethics these PF leaders? Just why would leader endanger the lives of its citizens?
How can you plot to benefit from the cruelty of this invisible enemy? You can only do that if you have the same characteristics as this killer of which the entire PF government is now proving not to be different to corona virus itself. Their deeds, are just so shocking and unimaginable.
In the middle of this pandemic, they have failed to behave and hide their dictatorship tendencies by closing prime TV; causing jobs losses. They have extended their long arm of destruction by abusing donor aid; they are now diverting funds meant for the fight against COVID-19 to God knows where. They have continued stealing from poor citizens just like we have seen the alleged disappearance of gold in Mwinilunga worth approximately K30 million. This is how evil they have become.
PF has infected people with hunger, PF has infected people with fear and hate, PF has divided and torn families apart, PF has killed jobs and livelihoods, PF has stigmatized and victimized citizens from certain regions. What bad thing haven’t they done to Zambians?
Now, do you see that it’s exactly what the corona-virus has done to the people. The PF are in the same WhatsApp group with COVID-19 and that’s why they can easily blend with it’s mission to kill people without shame.
PF and Corona-virus have the same DNA!
They have in their ranks people like Dr Chitalu Chilufya who should surely be in a position to pump some sense in the others regarding the danger of COVID-19. But how can he do that when he has issues with ACC? In fact it was reported the other day that he has appropriated donated materials and has given them to PF cadres that are selling them on the black market. How base can a person be and how low can they sink? PF and their surrogates need to stop political grandstanding with these so called Chitenge face masks that will endanger the lives of people as according to the WHO, they offer 0% protection against not just Corona-virus but does not protect against any known virus.
What sort of individuals are these that are so desperate to stay in power that they are prepared to act with such recklessness and endanger the lives of people?
So far, we have not seen any of the ministers wearing the Chitenge masks and yet they are encouraging others to do so. This is how wicked PF government is to citizens. Money meant to fight COVID-19 is now being channeled into campaigns without the knowledge of donors.
It is very clear now that funding PF government is as good as funding dictatorship, oppression and abuse of human rights. This is the same group of individuals who decided to shield gassers who terrorized citizens and to date there is no information on who these people were and who was funding them. We can only conclude they they were PF functionaries whose Identities are being concealed by the PF themselves.
Lungu and his PF government should be ashamed of the way they have mismanaged the country since they came into power. We have never had a bunch of useless politicians at the helm since we became a sovereign nation. When able leaders around the world are trying to come up with plans on how to cushion their citizens in need of social assistance, Edgar Lungu is busy increasing taxes, milking poor citizens and corruption is rife and later sends his thug Lusambo to beat up the same citizens they are exploiting.
As at now, Zambians should not expect any reputable leadership from these visionless looters until there is a change of government next year.
