Dear Amos, the President is really never here
So Amos Chanda was on ZNBC waxing lyrical about where the President was or was not, when rumors were flying around about him. Now I have asked this before, if this President took a two-year leave, how would we miss him? What is the difference between having EL sitting in his office in Plot 1 or Davies Chama experiencing how it would feel to be the one? When last did anyone hear the President or his proxies like Amos articulate an understanding, forget concern, about the real issues affecting ordinary Zambians – unemployment, hunger, lack of schools, broken hospitals, youth alcohol abuse, bars that don’t close in poor communities, corruption, poor quality services, starving street vendors chased by council police every day? Now we must be addressed about the Kateka being in Mfuwe or Iceland. Bloody hell! We don’t care. All we want is a President that looks like he understands why he is in office. A President that speaks to us when we need him to. A President that runs the country. Mfuwe – my foot!
