REMINDER TO THE PRESIDENT
WHO DO THE PEOPLE SAY I AM?
Whatever people say I am does not define the realities of my constituency but merely asserts their perceptions as they want to see me. There was a time, once upon a time when I allowed people to define me, when I wanted to please everyone, when I was labelled names such as shushu (Zambia Security Intelligence Services Officer) but whether that is true neither I nor the President of that Zed club knows.
But what I do know with all certainity is that I only have one Mother and Father and that is Zambia, land of my birth, the land where my umbilical cord which connected me to my Mother is barried, am now connected to Mother Zambia. I will fight for her, I will protect those who desecrate her. It is much more noble to die fighting for the dignity of my nation, than to see my Mother Land raped by gluttonous politicians.
I tremble with fear and disgust, to see the nation gone to dogs. But like the Apostles drunk with the Holy Spirit I continue to make utterances which simple mediocre minds fail to comprehend. YES I SPEAK IN TONGUES.
When I ask why people should be subjected to tyranny and poverty in their own Mother land politicians and cadres accuse me of being funded by the opposition… and make death threats on me. IF ANYONE CAN ME PAY TO FIGHT EVIL AND INJUSTICE, I WILL EMBRACE THAT PAYMENT. GREAT MINDS ENCOUTER GREAT OPPOSITION, FROM SIMPLE MINDS. But I fear no death I would rather die as a matyr than to live as a slave in my own country.
There is a cold war going in our country, we are stripped off the freedom of thinking and expression. The only freedom of expression we have is to praise the tyrannts and reason within the confinements of their Propaganda. BUT BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE DRUNK WITH CHEAP POLITICAL ORIENTATIONS AND MISGUIDED IDEAOLOGIES THEY ARE BLIND TO THE REALITIES OF THEIR EXISTENCE.
I AM NOT AFRAID OF YOU Mr. DICTATOR, BUT YOU NEED TO BE AFRAID OF ME, BECAUSE I AM IMMORTAL, I AM AN IDEOLOGY THAT CAN NOT BE KILLED. I AM THE CONSCIENSE IN YOU WHICH YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO SHUN, I AM THE BIG TREE WHICH HAS BEEN CUT, BUT WHOSE ROOTS RUN DEEP IN THIS EARTH, SOONER OR LATER NEW BRANCHES WILL SHOOT. MY LEAVES WILL GIVE NEW LIFE AND SHELTER TO THE OPPRESSED, ONE DAY PEOPLE WILL FEED ON MY FRUITS.
IT MAY BE TODAY OR TOMORROW OR IN 2016 BUT THAT DAY WILL SURELY COME, YOU CAN THREATEN ME TODAY BUT YOU CANNOT DESTROY ME. I AM MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU, YOU OPPRESS ME NOT BECAUSE YOU ARE STRONG BUT OUT OF THE INTOXICATIONS OF YOUR OWN INSECURITIES AND PARANOIA.
Who Am I?
