HH should help the Post

Dear Editor,

Strange things are happening in Zambia. Kabimba who are these Zambians you are calling upon to come and redeem your friends at the Post paper?

Are you not in Zambia to know the feelings of many Zambians towards your friend?

Your friend (M’membe) Mr Kabimba if you did not know is an enemy of many silent Zambians.

Many people have suffered silently and they cannot wait to see him go through what he is going through.

Ubwafwilisho bukashupa sana. And your thinking that if the paper goes under it will be a blow to democracy, I strongly differ with you because your friend has abused the very democracy to settle scores with his perceived enemies.

It is simply pay time now. Probably you may try his newly found friend HH for help.




Leadership struggle in PF

Dear Editor

Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown for reasons I may not be competent to discuss once denounced the leaders of the regime in Zimbabwe as a “criminal Cabal”

A cabal is a group of people united in some close design together, usually to promote the private views or interest in a State or even a church organisation often by intrigue, usually without knowledge of persons outside their group.

Cabals are often secret societies composed of few designing persons and are manifestations of emergent behaviour in governance on the part of persons who have a well -established public affiliation or kinship.

The term cabal can also be used to refer to the designs of such persons or to the practical consequences of their emergent behaviour and also holds a general meaning of intrigue and conspiracy.

The use of the term usually carries strong connotations of shadowy corners, back rooms, and insidious influence. Some Masonic conspiracy theories describe free Masonry as an internationalist Secret Cabal.

During the past few days we have seen the ugly head of a secret cabal within the ruling party PF come up.

The causal factors are being attributed to President Lungu appointing new PF member to cabinet positions at the expense of PF founding members.

Fellow countrymen, women and youths,when one election in Ivory Coast ended in a war one point became clear about African politics.

If Gbagbo and Gattara were both members of the same Party (one party state) any competition for President would have unlikely led to a war because regardless of whoever wins, their party would emerge as the winner and the supporters of either candidate would still see themselves as members of the same party.

The situation would be exactly as Republicans in the USA voting to elect a party leader. Whether the winner is Bush or Carson will never result in conflict and divisions among their supporters. The supporters would always emerge united because they would see themselves as members of the same party.

In the case of our Zambian PF situation, a cabal could have been formed long before the demise of President Michael Sata (MHSRIP) which has made Presidential aspirants see themselves as enemies.

When only one candidate was picked the losing side mobilized their people against the man who got the mandate and whose prerogative it is to appoint and disappoint.

My advice to all PF rebels is that it takes the maturity of political leadership to put the love of the party and indeed Zambia ahead of political aspiration to prevent potential divisions before the 2016 elections.

What is most disheartening is that out of selfishness, the same group is now calling for a convention to elect a new party president to lead the PF in the next general election!

Zambia Revenue Authority and the Post

Dear Editor


If the words attributed to Mumbuna Kufwekisa are correct that there is a possibility that some repayments have not been captured on to the system months after receiving the actual payment and  is a source of concern.

ZRA’s mandate is not only to collect revenue on behalf of Government but also to fully account for the collections.

If ZRA can fail to account for collections from the Post, there could be a lot more anomalies that ZRA would do well start rectifying these anomalies than pursuing the Post.

Before ZRA can breathe fire on the POST, can they also tell the nation why they are selective in their execution?
