President Sata cannot be blamed for having more Bemba speaking people in his government because those are mostly the ones who stood with him when he was fighting MMD government for almost, if not over a decade. Let’s face it, he got over whelming support and votes from places like Luapula, Northern and copper belt provinces where the majority bembas live than in other provinces of Zambia in the last general elections where he emerged as a winner and you would expect even more people from the same places to fill his cabinet and government.
Please this is what any normal president would do because there’s no way Sata would ignore the people who sacrificed their lives and resources for him and the PF to appoint those who didn’t just because they come from southern or western provinces for example, no way.
As ZRP being a progressive opposition political party, we feel we will be failing in our duties if we just condemn the govt and the president for the sake of it. Please let us be objective when debating and arguing. When you hear that PF scooped almost all parliamentary seats in Luapula province for example, what comes into your mind? If we don’t want the repetition of this nature, please let’s all begin to educate our people not to support presidential candidates and political parties based on tribes.
Surely president Sata would be a fool to ignore those that stood with him through thin and thick and appoint those that didn’t just in order to please people. In any case even when you look at UPND for example, because most of its support is from southern province and the majority of the people in influential positions in UPND are also from Southern province. So President Sata cannot be condemned for this, sorry.
Right now as Zambia Republic Party ZRP, we are busy asking all Zambians everywhere irrespective of their tribes, gender, age, colour or education to join the REPUBLICANS before its late and when we cross over, as we will one day soon by God’s grace, the appointments will be accordingly while we will strive to better the lives of all our people in all provinces of Zambia. By this I do not insinuate that one’s academic credentials will never be considered when it comes to crucial appointments.
The REPUBLICANS are back!
