Negative thinkers are a national liabitility

Dear Editor,

IT is said that a negative thinker sees a difficulty in every opportunity while a positive thinker sees an opportunity in every difficulty.

Leadership is always seen to be a hustle by a lazy person, while a hard worker sees a blessing.

I know for a fact that I am not alone in entirely giving a 100 percent agreement to the call by President Lungu for those appointed to be resilient, accommodating and hard working.

I am so much confident that the tested kind of leadership that we have seen since President Lungu took over office after the demise of our beloved late President Sata; more development will be seen and attained, hence the need to have selfless leadership.

As rightly put by our President (PRESIDENT LUNGU CALLS ON CABINET TO BE RESILIENT, HARD WORKING – Daily Nation, September 16th, 2016) Challenges will be faced in the quest to attain the much needed national development but if positive thoughts and positive plans are set by positive, sober-minded leaders (appointed), success can be attained, hence the very need for collective wisdom if progress and success is to be attained.

It’s never easy to reach the much needed national development, hence the need by those appointed to have the much needed courage, strength, commitment and determination if we are to reach the much needed development because nothing worthwhile comes easy.

Those from the opposition should also sober up and work in unity with those in the ruling government.

Time of politicking is long gone and time to embrace a hard working mind is now because people in both rural and urban areas need to see the much-talked about development that was promised during the last campaign period by both those in the ruling and opposition political party.

Zambia has the much needed potential to develop, hence the call for both the ruling and those in opposition to meet, discuss and agree in oneness for this great nation to achieve the much needed development.

And to the newly appointed Members of Parliament, we only ask for one thing – hard work, if the much talked about development is to be attained.

Hard work is needed from the newly elected Members of Parliament and we just hope that the abbreviation MP will stand to the truth and be exactly what they stand for as Members of Parliament and not as Money Plunderers (MP).

Be very approachable and not to create a distance between the very people you need to work for and by all means be a big inspiration to us the youths.

The power of the ballot spoke. Now we need the very power of positive thinkers and positive doers to give us the best in terms of development.

Remember, whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor, will himself call out and not be answered – proverbs 21:13.

You needed us in the just ended August 11th, general elections, believe you me, you will need us again.

Just a serious thought,

Troy Mukupa

Open letter to President Lungu

Dear Sir,

NOW that elections are over and you will be soon appointing new office bearers in foreign missions, I am humbly requesting you to also consider some party officials from lower party structures such as the constituency.

The PF has not in the past rewarded deserving loyal members because usually a few outspoken individuals are rewarded with foreign mission jobs at the expense of hard working members in lower party ranks.

Mr President, this time make a difference.

If the ongoing social media rumour list of foreign mission appointees in circulation is true, then kindly reverse your decision because no member from lower party ranks is on that list.

Sir, there are many unsung heroes who greatly worked for the party and this must be their time to benefit.

For example, I know of a constituency vice secretary for Kabwe central constituency a youthful Moses Juma who did a good campaign song for you titled “Balikutumine kuli Lesa” which received overwhelming response despite not getting any cash for the song.

I would see the young man happily perform his song at PF rallies in Kabwe and I think such people must be rewarded.

Sir, lower party members such as ward chairmen usually work hard without being recognised.

I think it is time our party started to reward lower party members to show that loyalty pays.

I will be happy if my letter will be put into consideration.

Progress Mwansa

UPND on the brink of extinction

Dear Editor,

It is all easy to see that opposition UPND needs a complete overhaul if it has to live to people’s expectations.

Foremost, I would strongly urge its members to put a non-Tonga president in the office because currently it appears the party was formed purely to serve the interest of Tongas, hence the strange voting pattern.

The trouble with this approach is that the party will only remain in Southern Province as its main stronghold. Since politics is about numbers what is the point then?

I am sure that there are many Tongas out there who are thinking like me.

Southern Province has a choice either to fully participate in the affairs of Zambia at all levels or remain condemned as an opposition party in that region.

Its current members have to think beyond Southern Province borders and penetrate the remaining 7 provinces where it is failing to make a mark for obvious reasons.

It should do that now or risk going into extinction. The choice is entirely theirs.
