As ailing dictator Michael Sata prepares to open parliament this morning, almost all the opposition members of parliament go inside parliament spotting bald heads.
A check at parliament motel shows that almost all the male and even some female opposition MPs who normally keep their hair were by yesterday shaving themselves to see how Sata will react since he loses it when he sees a bald head.
Mr. Sata’s Sangomas (witchdoctors) have told him never to allow people with bald heads near him for his life to be preserved.
All the State House staff and a number of his ministers have now been directed to keep their hairs, but the Zambian opposition lawmakers want to put his traditional medicine to open test today by going with bald heads.
Even this morning, a number of them were still rushing to barber shops to completely shave their hair ahead of their encounter with Mr. Sata who detests bald heads.
