Exiled Artiste Fumba Chama known as ‘Pilato’ Writes
INTERPOL FOR PILATO
Reports say, I have been reported to the International Police by the Zambian government for protesting corruption and running away from hooligans. I will be happy to hand myself to any law enforcement agency even the Zambian police.
The first day I started this journey I knew it wouldn’t be an easy one. I knew it was a journey in the wilderness. I perfectly understand that my own freedom of expression is my responsibility to stand by my own actions and words. This responsibility means that I should be able to face the law whenever required both the just laws and the unjust ones as long as they are agreed upon. This is not a path I chose with my guts but one that was chosen with very strong convictions of a socially just society. I do not believe that inequality and social injustice can overcome itself, this is something that those that believe in the ideas of a socially just society must fight for. I protested and I will protest again as long as the masses of our people remain deprived of a decent livelihood. There’s no justification why the president and his pets can be getting rich every day while the majority of our population keep drowning in the bottomless pit of poverty. I will again protest and demand for accountability as long as our people remain under-served.
The slave must be willing to pay the highest price for his freedom because those that enslave him may not be willing to let him go for free. This is what led to our own freedom as country.
I will wait for the Interpol to arrest me this week and next week…. If they don’t I will walk into the nearest police station here or even travel back to Zambia to be arrested. I am willing and ready to be arrested by the police and not the thugs.
