Feeling better: Sata goes to China this week

Ailing president Michael Sata will force himself by going to China this week where he is expected to arrive on Thursday, 4th April 2013 for a state visit .

In the past four days Sata suddenly became very active and presented himself to the  public three times over the holiday. The first time he was seen in public was on Friday at a Church service where he was more concerned about his sickness than prayers. He was asking reporters if he looked dead.

On Sartuday he went to Luangwa where he said his government would within 24 months construct a road from Feira through Mtendere in Lusaka to Zimbabwe.

Whilst is China  Sata will also attend the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) in Boao, Hainan province south of the capital of Beijing.

Sata and 25 other Heads of State and government leaders will share opinions on pressing issues with a view of promoting regional economic integration and bringing Asian countries closer to their development goals.

Mr. Sata  is expected to make a presentation at the BFA will also hold official bilateral talks with his host President Xi Jingping which will culminate into the signing of bilateral agreements at Sheraton hotel in Sanya.

The BFA will be held under the theme ‘Asia Seeking Development for All: Restructuring, Responsibility & Cooperation’ and is scheduled to take place between April 6th to 8th this week.

President Sata will also deliver a key note at the Sub Forum, Africa: Rise of an Ancient Continent.

He is also scheduled to meet government leaders of Shenzen on to discuss issues surrounding economic zones.

Zambia is currently planning to establish industrial clusters in all the ten provinces with the aim of improving trade and commerce in the country.

He is also expected to hold bilateral meetings with Chinese Premier of the State Council Li Kequiang and chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Part Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda, Home Affairs Minister Effron Lungu and Commerce Minister Emmanuel Chenda and other government officials, are expected to accompany him.

On arrival in Beijing, the Zambian dictator will be received by Mines Minister Christopher Yamfwa, Transport Minister Christopher Yaluma and Tourism Deputy Minister David Phiri. All these people are paid huge allowances on top of the air fees and accommodation costs.

Sata will also meet the Zambian community living in China and attend the Zambia-China economic and investment forum to be hosted by the Zambian Embassy and China Non Ferrous Metal Mining Company before concluding his business in China.

    ESTABLISHING INDUSTRIAL CLUSTERS IN PROVINCES IS A PRETTY GOOD IDEA. EMBARK ON IT STRAIGHT AWAY.

    I ve missed seeing the Zambian Head of State doing real work and been shown on tv. Atleast I could follow events and policy direction when ever KK, FTJ, LPM and RB were in plot 1.

    Maybe CCTV can do us the honor by showing our man this time around in China. I hope he didn’t go with his usual comedy to China.

    So he is not sick after all, ZWD?
    And is he meeting his counterpart President Zuma over tea to iron out a few “small” issues raised by the ‘irresponsible’ Post which has basically insulted both the people of RSA and their Presido?

    You are so jealous with the president. Since he has been president, you have never appreciated anything. The reality is that MICHAEL CHILUFYA SATA is the president of Zambia up 2016. Whether sick or imbecile, this will remain in the history of Zambia. Do you think that the way you publish your story and think that everyone will sink so low as yourself and believe to yo story?… Dont misuse the online publication, if you a mouth piece of HH or MUMBA, you should ask yourself, how many registered Zambian voters are able to read these unrealiable information. Just wait for 2016, you will be ashamed. Every time, ailing Sata, God is with him. He is a human being as anyone else. You should not be glorify with someone sickness. You can make your news more interesting by being balance in your coverage though biased. Not every time ailing Sata did this and that… Do you think HH and MUMBA are holier than SATA or healthier than Sata. I BUJU will never believe of this so called blog of watchdog. I urge all patriotic reader on this blog to be analytical before making any comment.

    Country men, let us not lough on Satas’ sickness, we are all deadly sick. The decease you know is much better than the one you don’t know. Some Presidents have ruled nations whilst in bed and moreover it is the cabinet that rules, so sickness daz not matter on national issues each one of us will die with a hiden sickness.

    Dear Editor, kindly republish this article.

    By Laura Miti

    An open letter to President Michael Sata

    December 12 2012

    Your Excellency Sir,

    From the day you were elected I have wanted to have a quiet conversation with you. I actually toyed with the idea of joining the long line of people that were said to be knocking on State House gates for an appointment with you in the latter part of last year. But then I figured you would not have the time for the kind of chat I wanted given as you were still busy trying to create government. And heck, I was unlikely to be given an audience. All I had wanted to say then and which I am trying to say now is Your Excellency, please do our beloved Zambia no harm. But I will come back to that.

    It is more than a year since you assumed office and the need to speak directly to you has risen with every month of your presidency. It is for that reason that I have decided to put my thoughts to paper. I have chosen to make it an open letter in the hope that someone might come by it and bring it to your attention.

    Let me start, Your Excellency Sir, by reminding you of an incident you may have forgotten. Sometime in 2004, I think it was, you came to my office at what was then the Catholic Centre for Justice, Development and Peace (CCJDP) in Kabulonga.

    As you walked in with your entourage you said “iwe ka Laura ninshi ulandila ati Zambians should not vote for me because I have a lot to explain. Ninshi ufwaya nkalondolole” You then said “Levy Mwanawasa nga alakumfwila efyo ulanda nga alateka bwino” I laughed and you left.

    Well the reason I write today is to give you the answer to the question you asked that day. I want to tell you why I never wanted you to become President.

    It was that, given your actions as MMD Secretary General, and your role in President Chiluba’s third term bid, I just feared for Zambia under you. I simply could not get my head around citizens expecting that you would, as President, not be very disrespectful of the institutions of democracy given that you had supported a president’s bid to go against the constitution. It also boggled my mind that you were asking for the presidency when you had never given a good explanation as to why you were the face of that much hated third term campaign. There was also of course that Chawama by election.

    The point for me was that, the most certain way humans have of knowing how someone is likely to behave in the future, is by how they have behaved in the past. In my view therefore, Zambians were either expecting some kind of miracle change of heart with you or else were just putting their collective heads in the sand. So yes from 2001 until 2011, I consistently suggested to whoever asked me in private and in public that putting you in State House would be a bad idea. As an opposition leader though, I quite liked you.

    Now let me quickly add that I still cling to the hope that I have been consistently wrong in my evaluation of your politics. But heck, Sir, the signs are not good.

    So far, any objective observer of your administration will agree that you seem to be taking the country backwards in long strides especially as regards its hard won institutions, traditions and practices of democracy.

    Let me give you an example from the actions of your administration this week. The police have arrested MMD President, Nevers Mumba for God knows what. Apparently he went to a place he should not have, or addressed some chiefs without permission – the story is not clear seeing as no one seems to think citizens need an explanation. My guess is you are utilising the much hated Public Order Act to harass Pastor Mumba. Why, I cannot understand.

    Why does it not matter to you that you seem to be going against everything you ever propagated in all those years you worked so hard to become President? I keep scratching my head and asking – so this man stood in three elections so that he could dismantle our institutions of democracy. Is it really why you fought so hard?? So that you could arrest opposition leaders, appoint dodgy characters to high office, mess around with the judiciary, and waste loads of money that could be used in service delivery on unnecessary bye elections?

    Let me spend a little more time on the question of bye elections because they make my blood boil. Your Excellency, I am sure you know that the people of Chibolya, and those of many other townships in the country, have no toilets. I have written about this for many years because it makes me want to weep. Landlords, many of them living on yours and my side of the street, are allowed by government to build what they call houses or rooms in townships. They rent them out and make a bomb of money and yet are not required by law to build even the most rudimentary of pit latrines as a minimum. The result is that millions of Zambians have to be creative in the way they relieve themselves. We are told they defecate in empty shake shake containers which they then toss onto neighbours rooftops, onto the street and any which where.

    Tell me Mr Sata why? Why should a Zambian in 2012 not have access to even a pit latrine? Let me connect this to bye elections now. I am no builder nor am I an accountant but something tells me that for the astronomical cost this country has expended in the last year, to hold the totally unnecessary bye elections your government created in Chongwe and Mufumbwe etc, we could have quite a few toilets built in Chibolya. Each home does not even have to have one. I am sure the residents of townships across Zambia would be happy to share one decent pit latrine and bath space between three homes for a start. With the kind of money that government after government has thrown at useless bye elections that bring nothing to citizens, we should actually have flush communal toilets that residents can share in every township.

    So tell me Mr Sata, why are we continuing to waste money on by elections? Do you ever connect the money used in Mufumbwe to real lives? Does the ruling party consider that the money used to run one senseless bye election could prevent an adult man moving his bowels in yet another shake shake container? That man is Zambian. He has nowhere else to go where he will be treated with dignity. It is his money that ruling party after ruling party throws away in order to gain seats in a moribund parliament.

    Do you know what is funny, Sir? It is that if you did address service delivery questions and built these toilets I am talking about in township after township, Zambians would canonise you. They would sing your name in praise. In short, you don’t need to have violent bye elections to ensure the PF rules for the foreseeable future. Just improve the lives of the poor. Forget Nevers Mumba. I mean why does he bother you?

    But I have got to end as this letter is getting too long. Let me end where I started and ask you for just one thing. In dealing with the this country which you have the privilege to preside over having been brought to power on a wave of much joy and determination from ordinary people, please adopt as your motto the Hippocratic Oath that is taken by doctors. It says “First do no harm!” Simply, I am begging you to ensure that when the day comes for you and your administration to leave, you will not have reversed the gains we have strived for. Even if you do nothing to improve Zambia, I ask you please -do not take us backwards!

    That said, let me end by stating that I do wish you and the PF well. You proved me wrong.

    Best

    Laura

    Its easier said than done. Time is ticking very fast for PF to redeem themselves than appointing a clutter of cadres to destroy the country.
    Development follows people and not the opposite. 3 years is left, the last 2 was about swearing in ceremonies, transfering and firing their own failed workers. I’m sure from China nothing will change as long as the same people are still in charge for they don’t want change of community development apart from their bellies.
