I am no longer proud of being Zambian

Of late I have been having a feeling of something amiss but could not put my finger on it until two days ago when a new colleague at the practice asked me where I hailed from. I hesitated. Thats when everything hit home. You see, I have always been known as ‘ that proud Zambian’ by my workmates. I never spared an opportunity to harp about my country and how different it was from most African countries. Lately, this is something that I hardly ever do. It hit me on this day,,, after my hesitation answering my new colleagues question. Lucky for me, somebody appeared from elsewhere with an enquiry about a totally different issue. I took my time resolving this but damn! The new colleague was not to be put off so easily,,,, he asked me the second time.
