    Zambian politics will never impress the educated and upright population as to attract their participation, thus it is left to the mercy of cadres to provide mediocre leadership! As though this is not enough recycling of political leaders who think having been in corridors of power for a good part of their lives is on the rise as if their second or third re-enrollment would better governance! Oh Zambia! Give opportunity to new faces and especially new generation leaders to try their hand at a vision they harbor!

    Zambians are really craving for power – to others, its the end of their political careers and destined for the dustbin. Zambians are fatigued with mediocrity of political parties with hidden agenda of those behind the formation of these parties. A party formed by a husband and wife and a few friends and relatives can not strive in Zambia currently. Any new party should be formed from a country wide national consultations culminating into a national convention where leadership can be elected based on its ethos, beliefs and values to influence Zambian livelihood. In the absence of this process, its BID.
