Converting state organs into personal property

In many african countries,bad governance by civilian or military regimes has led to political instability or civil war,resulting in the collapse of the economy.The illegal conversion of vital state organs into personal property or political tools has resulted in corruption,inefficiency and high cost for business transactions.In Zambia for example economic power is concertrated in the hands of the ruler.He uses it to buy or reward loyalty either financially or by appointment to lucrative positions in public institutions,regardless of the appointee’s competence,and deny economic opportunities to those he considers to be disloyal.In short he converts public property and public institutions to his own use in a quest for political survival.Those in the system have many opportunities to enrich themselves and their relatives and tribesmen at the expense of the economy…we know them and they should know that every dog has its day.

    This is the problem of allowing foreigners to rule your country. They have very few or no relatives in the country. So no matter what happens to the economy, they are not bothered. It is time for HH and GBM true Zambians to put their act together and bring this stupidity to an end. EZN a Tanzanian is not saying anything.

      It is not in any true Zambians’ nature to be hateful and divisive let alone authoritarian yet the Zambian pride has been short changed by the obsessive affinity for the alien over kith or kin!
