CLIMATE CHANGE: HICHILEMA THE WILD NEBUCHADNEZZAR OF UPND
The Unilateral Declaration of “Inzala” (UDI) by UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema just shows how desperate an anarchist he is.
He thinks Statecraft is as twisted as his despotic misrule of UPND for close to 15 years- where he “doesn’t wait” for input from others but runs his party like a badly depleted sole-trader personal kantemba.
He doesn’t “wait” for anyone or listen to anybody else because he is full of nothing else but his sorry bitter self.
Like the Biblical King Nebchadnezzar whose bloated ego turned him into a grass eating- disheveled- talon foraging wild like being; with Hichilema everything is about “I” and nothing else.
Its never about the people – and that is why they have rejected him continuosly 5 times since 2006.
Even if he tries “mass bribery” with mealie meal, the people know him only too well and they’ll continue to do a “donchi” on him.
They know how even his smile is laboured and mechanical.
It is tragic how Hakainde’s wild ego and “know-it-all” attitude has led him to roam blind in the wilderness foraging for any opportunity for anarchy.
What kind of being perpetually seeks to create and feed off anarchy?
Would such a one be suitable to lead this nation?
Even wild animals in the bush have some kind of order.
Afterall, they too are feeling the effects of climate change.
All creation around the globe – including flaura and fauna is affected by climate change; except perhaps for one Nebuchadnezzar -like creature who is too absorbed with himself and his quest for power that he has buried his head in the sand, and doesn’t listen to or “wait” for anyone.
With a fowl -like obsession to scratch the ground searching for hateful opportunities and morsels of anarchy, the Nebuchadnezzar of UPND scoffs at climate change, making a mockery of nature.
However, history shows us that nature and the realities of life have a way of having the last laugh…
