I have an everlasting respect and honor for you because you are the Father of our Country. No one can convince me otherwise that you are Zambia’s most important icon, thats why its with great pain that I write the following to you. I wish to express my disgust and utmost disappointment in your recent outandish remarks that all Zambians should support or Join PF.
I dont mind anyone asking us to support the GOVERNMENT, but asking the whole Country to join PF is like saying “Hey guys lets go back to the old days of One party system were if anyone doesnt support PF, his or her patriotism is questioned.” So Doctor Kaunda, when will you persuade your son Tilyenji to dissolve UNIP into the realms of PF ?
You have to back your words with action, right? I know you have never been fully convinced that an Opposition Party is the correct conduit for bringing checks and balances and besides that, as a FATHER OF THE NATION, asking people to join PF is not only an insult to the 60% and growing of people in Zambia that are not PF but also an insult to your LEGACY as a unifying factor.
Have you forgotten that you are not only the father to the government of the day but also to the OPPOSITION OF THE DAY? And when you make utterances, how come we dont hear much from you about the BAROTSELAND CRISIS, a situation that we need you the most on since you are one of the people that penned that agreement.
If you have the energy to speak for Sata, how about travelling to Barotseland and helping Zambia interprete and dialogue this elusive agreement? Do not destroy your prestigious Legacy by being partisan, we need you to play an advisory role for all political players in the Country, otherwise please go and take a sit somewhere.
I love you with all my heart and to me , you will ALWAYS ALWAYS be my number one Zambian hero.
