Ailing dictator Michael Sata has now banned any government ministers and officials from seeing him if they have bald heads.
State House sources say Mr. Sata does not allow anybody around him to have bald head and his reactions to such people can usually be very ugly and has so far resulted in instant dismissals or transfers.
In what clearly looks like some witchcraft on his part, Mr. Sata never misses publicly criticising or ridicule people with bald heads at any occasion, the latest being at the African Union where he again made reference to people with bald heads in the presence of South African president Jacob Zuma who spots a bald head.
Most of Mr. Sata’s senior officials who used to have bald heads have now been forced to have some afro hair for them to keep their jobs.
Ministers like Chishimba Kambwili, Kennedy Sakeni, and John Phiri of Education together with State House press aid George Chellar all used to have bald heads but are now spotting afro hair for them to comply with Sata’s demons that don’t like bald heads.
The directive has now proved to be challenge to a number of ministers and officials, especially those with grey hair as they are being forced to dye their hair to look black.
Not entertaining bald heads is believed to be part of the traditional medicine that was prescribed for Mr. Sata for him to win elections and keep the presidency.
Popular talk in the streets have also linked the numerous road accidents in the country to some sacrifices for Mr. Sata’s continued survival from his failing healthy.
