Zambia now a kleptocracy

Zambia effectively a Kleptocracy
Zambia has effectively become a Kleptocracy under the current Patriotic Front leadership of Edgar Lungu as confirmed by the rampant theft by so called leaders to enrich themselves.
On Friday PF youths impounded truckloads of Mukula believed to be owned by some top PF and State House officials .
Under Edgar Lungu corruption has become the order of the day with PF leaders at each others necks fighting for contracts and kickbacks.
See below the definition of a Kleptocracy:

Kleptocracy (from Greek κλέπτης kléptēs, “thief”, κλέπτω kléptō, “I steal”, and -κρατία -kratía from κράτος krátos, “power, rule”) is a gov ernment with corrupt leaders (kleptocrats) that use their power to exploit the people and natural resources of their own territory in order to extend their personal wealth and political power. Typically this system involves embezzlement of funds at the expense of the wider population.”

    If so, Zambia was on the path to this point since the independence. All previous and current governments are to blame for not creating checks and balances in the system to control for power abuse and exploitation of the national resources. Otherwise democracy seems to be a foreign organ transplanted into African body and rejected by it.
