Is UPND a political party or a terrorist organisation?

Dear Editor,

The Hamas is a well-known Palestinian Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist organisation which has mastered the art of misinformation and deceit coupled with an international propaganda machine which always left Israel chasing shadows in the war for public opinion.

They pile up missiles and set up launching pads in schools and hospitals and then blast-off rockets into Israel.

Then they put children and babies near these sites expecting Israel to respond, of course to kill some of these innocent souls.

And Israel definitely responds. But the Israeli response will be met with cameras already put in places to capture the images of Israel bombing children and babies, and these pictures are then spread all over the world – much to the horror of the world.

The UPND is behaving like the Hamas. They cause confrontation with the Police and everything fixed and moving, then they put poor children in the line of fire, and from a safe distance they take pictures eagerly waiting for the poor kids to be harmed so as to satisfy their now desperate propaganda war for political gain.

Once the children are harmed they rush to the international media and to some other galleries loudly playing victim when they are the real cause of such confrontation.

May the powers that be look at the UPND’s schemes? From Mapatizya, Mufumbwe, Kasama, Chalimbana, Bweengwa, Namwala and now all over the country.

Zambia is dealing with a political party that is violent as can be witnessed in Lusaka and Namwala districts.

Nosey diplomats threaten bilateral relations

Dear Editor,

It is very unfortunate that some diplomats accredited to Zambia are meddling in our internal affairs.

Diplomats by nature are supposed to play a very neutral role in fostering cordial bilateral relations between Zambia and their respective countries.

They should not side with any political party in our country be it the ruling party or opposition political parties.

If this trend remains unchecked, this can lead to anarchy which should not be the case.

The best they can do is play an advisory role when they notice that there is something that has terribly gone wrong.

Which local coach can train Chipolopolo?

Dear Editor,

Zambia Sports Fans Association patron Pastor Peter Makembo was quoted in the Daily Nation of Tuesday July 12, 2016 calling on FAZ to give a chance to a local coach to take up the national team trainer’s job.

Giving the job to a local trainer is not a bad idea but the question one has in mind is which local trainer does pastor Makembo has in mind?

This question might sound absurd or maybe too early but sometimes we have to be realistic.

Currently, there is no Zambian coach worth his salt who has never had a chance to coach the national team with little success.

Some tried but they were insulted and sent packing. You can go back to the time of Fred Mwila, Boniface Simutowe, Dickson Makwaza, Fred Nasilele, George Mungwa (MHSRIEP), Patrick Phiri, Fighton Simukonda (MHSRIEP), and more recently George Lwandamina, Aggrey Chiyangi etc.

The question is whom haven’t we tried and who do we want to try one more time.

To be honest, let us look outward this time around. We should not just be focused on going to Russia but let us look at it on the long-term basis.

We may talk of funds, but a good coach does not come cheap.

In fact, some of the money we offer can only attract coaches who are trying to get themselves established.

Ask South Africa, Morocco, Ivory Coast how much they are paying their coaches and compare that with what we pay.

Seriously speaking, we have gone down this route many times. You may ask Lewis Shambulo and Dan Kabwe, the gentlemen from the Coaches Association of Zambia.

For once, I do not have a local name, not to say we can’t find one but I can just think of a fresh name.

 ‘Arrows eye Sate Sate Kampamba’

Dear Editor,

To be very open with you, this will be a good move for the player if it happens because it will bring balance and competition in the MTN-FAZ league.

Most importantly, Nkana has many good players both local and foreign.

So if they are thinking of re-engaging Sate Sate, then it will be a sign of selfishness and poor planning on their part.

Above all, can someone advise the manager for Sate Sate, including the player himself, to take up the offer from Arrows because the Zambia Air Force (ZAF) sponsored outfit is a good team that can manage to pay the player well.

To crown it all, we want to know who selects the players for the National team.

Footballs Association of Zambia (FAZ), kindly make it clear to the soccer loving Zambians over this issue because the performance of our Chipolopolo Boys is so shameful.

I watch the local league in and out and I have seen a lot of good players who can do wonders at the national level yet, they have been left out for the same players who have been disappointing since.

I rest my case.
