SOUTHERN CROSS – A HEAVY CROSS TO BEAR

Postby Justice Mulinganya » 9th July 2010, 11:43

Dear Zambia,

I took my Mercedes Benz car to Southern Cross for them to make the car start as it was not starting. After weeks of waiting, I finally was told that the car had been repaired. After paying over K2million I picked the car and drove home. I noticed that the all interior and dashboard lights were not working. I took the car back to Southern Cross and complained. A few days later I was told that the problem had been fixed. After collecting the car, I noticed this time that the central locking system was not working. Again I took the car back. They tried to explain that problem was with the alarm system (even though I knew that the alarm system was okay). After they replaced the alarm system, the central locking system was still not working. After a few days, I was told that the problem was with the central locking vacuum pump. They replaced it with a second hand one. I was then asked to pay for the alarm system (which I did not request for and didn’t need) and the vacuum pump (which was working fine at the time that I took the car to Southern Cross). I refused to pay for the pump because as far as I was concerned the pump was damaged by Southern Cross. I paid for the alarm system and collected the car.

Unfortunately for me, my troubles didnt end there. A few day later, I found that the fan and the aircon were not working and the driver’s door lock was also faulty (a careful examination revealed that it had been tampered with!). Having gone through bad confrontations and arguments with some Southern Cross staff, I decided not to take the car back this time to avoid stress. I have been living with the problem since then – it is a heavy cross that I carry!

A few months later, I was introduced to a gentleman who does repairs of Mercedes Benz cars, having gained his experience and training from Star Motors (the former Benz franchise dealers before Southern Cross).The gentleman looked at my car and told me that he knew my car and had worked on it at one time. I asked him to explain how this was possible since I had never met him before and had never at any one time taken my car to him for repair. He told me that the car had been brought to him by Southern Cross!

This is Southern Cross for you!

In addition to the shody service, the Southern Cross chaps are damn expensive too. I was looking for corner and headlamps for my Mitsubishi Lancer and guess the quotation that I was given: K5.3Million Kwacha!

When I read the subject line of this thread I thought it could only be about one of two things.

1. Another born again Christian with a serious messianic complex.
2. A Tonga man lamenting yet again how there has never been a Tonga president in Zambia.

As you can see, I was way off base.

I thought this post was about how the Southerners are complaining about having the Western Province as their neighbour because all the Westerners ever do is bitch about how they are victims of the Zambian great compromise and how now they just want to secede, their Litunga, their big boat and all.

Nothing like having a neighbour who is bitching and moaning all day long

iwe, get the f*ck out of here. Are you joking? K5.3 mil, you could buy a few towns along the great north road with that kind of cash.

Crux is a constellation located in the southern sky in a bright portion of the Milky Way. It is among the most easily distinguished constellations, as all of its four main stars have an apparent visual magnitude above +2.8, even though it is the smallest of all 88 modern constellations. Its name is Latin for cross, and it is dominated by a cross-shaped or kite-like asterism that is commonly known as the Southern Cross.

Crosby, Stills & Nash Lyrics

"Southern Cross"

[Intro. (Acoustic Guitars)]
Oooh ...

Got out of town on a boat goin' to Southern islands
Sailing a reach before a followin' sea
She was makin' for the trades on the outside
And the downhill run to Papeete

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas
We got eighty feet of the waterline nicely making way
In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away

Think about
Think about how many times I have fallen
Spirits are using me larger voices callin'
What Heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten

(Around the world) I have been around the world
(Lookin') Lookin' for that woman girl
(Who knows she knows) Who knows love can endure
And you know it will

When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
You understand now why you came this way
'Cause the truth you might be runnin' from is so small
But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a comin' day

So I'm sailing for tomorrow my dreams are a dyin'
And my love is an anchor tied to you tied with a silver chain
I have my ship and all her flags are a' flyin'
She is all that I have left and music is her name

Think about
Think about how many times I have fallen
Spirits are using me larger voices callin'
What Heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten

(I've been around the world) I have been around the world
(Lookin') Lookin' for that woman girl
Who knows love can endure
And you know it will, and you know it will yes

[Instrumental (Electric Guitars)]
Oooh ...

So we cheated and we lied and we tested
And we never failed to fail it was the easiest thing to do
You will survive being bested
Somebody fine will come along make me forget about loving you
At the southern cross

[Ending (Acoustic Guitars)]
