‘Chitepo Killing’ article, interesting
The article which appeared in your April 18, 2016 publication entitled “WHO KILLED CHITEPO IN LUSAKA?” made very interesting reading.
I feel that the history of this country and the regional fight for liberation from the colonial slavery has to be retold with facts while the right people given praise and recognition for their contribution.
One wonders why Kaunda feted those demonic racists from RSA. If his intentions were truly to negotiate for the release of fighters, he could have done it openly.
While we are at it, please let us know what truly happened to Samora Machel.
Unfortunately, history has always been penned by the victors and with the passing of time and generations, those lies become facts.
It is not too late for Zambia and the region to rewrite our history in order to compile facts and remarkable contributions of such great sons of our soil like HARRY NKUMBULA, LEWANIKA and SIMON KAPWEPWE right.
These people fought against colonialism and had a vision for Zambia and Africa.
Africa has few true heroes. Those who still live like Robert Mugabe are demonised. Those who were killed like Lumumba, Sankara and Samora Machel are not talked about.
The trio are true African heroes.

UPND needs desk for ‘Apology Duties’
It makes me wonder how the selection of the top leadership in the UPND is done.
First, it was Dr Canisius Banda and his house rentals saga which went viral. Now, it’s GBM’s hatred and his vulgar language for others.
It’s such a shameful development that a top public leader could sink so low to insult others. Well, the Bible clearly states, ‘You shall know them by their fruits’ and what GBM has just shown should be a clear warning to each and every voter . Zambia’s democracy and it’s Christian values shouldn’t be left in the hands of such people. Another sad and disappointing development is how HH has chosen to remain mute over GBM’s vulgar language. I mean they have two Vice Presidents, one for administration (GBM) and the other for Politics (Dr. Canisius Banda). They even have a spokesperson for special duties, but one position they seem not to have is, the position of ‘Apology Duties’.
Till now, no one has come out openly to condemn the hatred and vulgar language by one of their own vice president, GBM. Should we then conclude that the hatred and vulgar language GBM is spreading on others has the blessings of the top UPND leadership? My advice to HH is: there is a difference between ACTING as a leader and BEING a leader. Therefore, stop ACTING and BE one.
