Sata wants his face mounted on every building

After he was pre-empted and therefore failed to impose his portrait on the rebased Kwacha, dictator Michael Sata has now ordered that his ugly face be mounted on every building and public place.

This is the first time since another dictator Kenneth Kaunda left office in shame that the taxpayers will finance a project to put someone’s face all the country.

In countries ruled by popular and functioning leaders, citizens do not need to be forced to put portraits of their leaders in their offices but do so willingly.

But dictators impose their portraits and statues on the public.

According to the order issued by cabinet office on behalf of Sata, the portrait of the dictator must be mounted above 2 metres and must be visible in every building.

The mounting of Sata’ s face is mandatory meaning one can be arrested for failing to mount the portrait of the dictator.

    LOL @Chileshe Joseph ahahaha! Good one. On a serious note, to put one’s picture is just condescending and arrogant I find. That stuff is from back in the KK error and find that it’s mostly African countries that tolerate it. In Western countries there is no such thing or it’s quite rare. Really what’s the point of mounting his picture because the whole country knows he is not a good president anyways! So why bother? He will be out before he even realizes it so are we going to continue wasting money on the next candidate for the same thing. And yes we don’t want our children to have nightmares so if you are going to put his picture, then put the one where he was busy dozing off in such a fine looking uniform. Shame! Shame! Shame! No wonder why National security issues seem to pass them by. Animals are being stolen in broad day light and they are still sleeping. Yayayayayaya… awe mwe!

    By the way if you really want to catch these people who sell exotic aniamls in Zambia, just google it, it’s all online. Check this one I found by simply typing it in:

    Why are you Bembas so deadly scared for a Tonga to rule this bemba mismanaged country? The reason is simple. A comparison will made and people will be very anoyed to discover how much time they have wasted without tangible development. It is like a man who is so jealousy of his wife when she is talking to other men because he knows he has no erections in the bed. That is the biggest fear to my bemba friends especially the uneducated ones. But hey Zambia is bigger that tuma tribes like Tonga and bembas! We need to build this country even under a Luvale or Lunda president as long as he or she is visionary.

    No matter how bad a leader atleast he deserves some respect.Some of the comments are appalling and profane.I strongly ask that lets give respect to our leaders please.I believe we can make comments minus insulting our leaders because most of them are as old as our fathers.Doing wrong does not give us the platform to demean them.lets be objective in our comments and desist from character and appearance assasination.Mr Chilufya Sata is still our President and he deserves our respect as he is the father of the nation.

    Masebo should stop issuing such careless statements like the one where she said “there are places that land on our airstips without clearance”. What she is doing is very dangerous to the security of the country. She is actually telling the world that Zambia is a porous country where anyone can sneak into and go out at will. How possible is it that a foreign plane can fly over our airspace withou ZAF and National airports clearing that plane. The president should immediately fire Masebo otherwise she will bring him down. She must be arrested and charged for publishing falsehood. We cant afford to have a minister with a porous mouth like Masebo. Shame on her.

    I NOW SEE. THE PF PARTY WANT TO FUNDRAISE FROM THESE PORTRAITS BECAUSE THEY WILL BE SOLD AND NOT FOR FREE. THIS IS NOT GOOD IDEA OF FORCING PEOPLE TO BUY THEM. LET THE BILL BE PASSED THROUGH PARLIAMENT PLEASE.

    THIS IS NOW TRUE AND PURE IDOLATRY. I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL CALLING ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION AND DOWN HERE IS HE AND UP IS GO. WHO DOES NOT KNOW THAT THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA IS SATA?

    I THINK THE CABINET ARE WORSHIPING HIM AS GOD. MWEBANTU WHAT HAS COME TO ZAMBIA THAT THEY CAN NOT RECOGNIZE THE PRESIDENT? THIS WILL BE TOO MUCH.

    PORTRAYS OF MARRY THE MOTHER TO JESUS ARE ALL OVER CATHOLICISM AND SATA’S WILL BE ALL OVER ZAMBIA.

    I once warned my neighbour against hanging pictures of people he doesn’t know very well, he was telling me that tuleteka bamudala.

    Three months down the line, my neighbour couldn’t afford paying the rentals and he was evicted together with the picture.

    Lessons no. 1 always be aware of what is hanging on your wall.

    THIS PORTRAIT IS NOT OK.It will be scaring children. Please use the one he was photographed whilst sleeping in the army uniform. That one will be easily accepted.
