Sichinga swims in sour grapes

Only yesterday our Robert Sichinga was in PF and saw nothing wrong with its fiscal programmes.

But now that he is out, his eyes suddenly are seeing what he failed to see while in PF. Totally absurd!

I know that he is hunting for something to put in his pocket but UPND should be wary of some of these so-called defectors who bring no value to their party.

If the idea is to try and win empathy and veneration from UPND by insulting the people who made  him PF, I think then he is playing low-priced politics which is typical of recycled politicians who have nothing else to offer.

Insulting PF is not a solution to win big favours in your new party. In fact if you had political morals you should have remained in PF and correct those mistakes you are now talking about.

I am sure that leaders in UPND are not snoozing. They know the people who have rushed to their party solely for existence.

I thought having been to school Sichinga ought to understand better the operatives of the Presidential Empowerment Initiative (PEI) instead of showing his abhorrence for PF in the manner he did.

That does not add any value to his name but of course it gives him chance to play cheap publicity in the Post where all discontented elements have found safe passage.

You don’t know what tomorrow brings. In Eastern Province we have an adage “Pa msasa saipisa”, meaning you don’t destroy your old home before securing a new one.

This is for Request Muntanga

In my opinion I think Request Muntanga of UPND should be the last person to blame President Lungu over violence.

Or is it the question of the best form of defence is to attack? I find his denunciations empty; if he has nothing to talk about he better shut his mouth.

There is no sane person on earth who would wish to use violence as his or her denominator to win elections.

What does Muntanga mean when he says that President Lungu should not underestimate UPND because it will not allow confusion in the coming elections?

It is easy to read between the lines to discern what Muntanga really means.

But suffice to say that those who plan violence will certainly reap violence. It is as simple as that.

So our political leaders should not be aggressive in their speeches but give hope to the people by encouraging them to maintain peace at all times.

I remember when I was in primary school reading a story about a frog which wanted to be as big as a cow and started pumping air into its body.

Without realizing the danger it was in, it continued doing so until it blew itself to death.

Our political leaders a letdown

As we move closer to the election day I wish to agree more with Father Leonard Chiti’s observations on our leaders (Post of April 5).

It is indeed time for our political leaders never to forget to consider the interests of those they lead before their own.

This is very correct because quite often times the electorate are visited only during the time of elections and immediately these leaders are put in office, they vanish.

That should not be the case. For those who are in the habit of disappearing, please stop and reflect on Fr Chiti’s advice.

It is true that leaders should by lead by example by first considering the suffering of the majority poor.

But what we often see on the ground is totally different from what Fr Chiti is talking about.

Our leaders first think of their position before looking at the people they lead.

In some cases even the famous CDF funds are pocketed by the same leaders who are supposed to lead by example.

But whether they can heed Fr Chiti’s advice or not, is another matter. But at least they have been told.

If the leaders do not fight for the majority poor, who will?

Ben K Chanda.
