DIVISIVE POSITIONS BASED ON PAST ELECTIONS’ RESULTS BY UPND ALLIANCE A DANGER TO ZAMBIA’S DEMOCRACY.
… the 2.8 Vs 1.8 debate detrimental to our democracy as it leaves out over 13 million undecided zambians…
The on going debate and positioning themselves as the “chosen children of the land” by the UPND Alliance and it’s self proclaimed staunch supporters on social media is a detriment to Zambian democracy.
This attitude is a recipe to brewing hate and heightened political violence in the country and if not checked and curtailed by the Alliance’s leader Republican President HE Hakainde Hichilema is likely to damage Zambia’s reputation as the harb of peace and unity!
Zambia is a peaceful and United country and the current youths if not careful and take a divisive approach to politicking are likely to lead this country in a “political ditch” that they will fail to pull it out from!
We need our peace and unity if we are to progress as a country in all areas, all zambians, the 2.8, 1.8 and the over 13 million people are looking forward to President Hakainde Hichilema for one reason, he is the Republican President, period!
From which ever group you fall in, remember we only have one country, Zambia and it’s our mandate to guard it’s stability jealously as it is all we have.
Campaign time is over and unfortunately it’s time to deliver the campaign promises and the victors must deliver.
However, this will call for close monitoring and demanding for the fulfillment of the sweet promises made during campaigns.
The 2.8 must realise that the 1.8 and the over 13 million zambians are watching and waiting to see what the Alliance government has to offer but also reserve their constitutional rights, to voice out on the day to day policies of the current government.
It’s our constitutional right to demand for answers from the government of the day and must be allowed to question the Alliance on it’s campaign promises.
They Alliance must tell the Zambian electorates why they made such campaign promises such as free education and why they now backing down on it’s implementation?
Instead of insults that we are subjected on daily basis for speaking out for the 1.8 decided and the over 13 million undecided zambians, we expect the 2.8 to explain the alliance’s manifesto otherwise we are made to believe it’s all about unpalatables!
We need to listen to a more detailed policy on agriculture and tourism being the best alternatives to mining and what is it that the are doing for the mines themselves!
What is it that they are doing to protect tourism from being destroyed by mining itself in the South Luangwa National Park, were we have two economical activities conflicting themselves.
