Are there benefits to being Zambian?


By Pharaoh Mwanza What benefits are there for one to be Zambian? Indeed a difficult question to answer. We have found ourselves in such a situation because as a country we lack selfless, principled and visionary leadership. Our leaders will do anything and everything to protect foreign investors and the so called people in good standing with the party. Just recently Hon. Maxwell Mwale appeared on a muvi TV program, ‘the assignment’ where every sane person could see that the minister was laboring to protect foreign investors. But one does not need a microscope to see the deplorable state of the Copperbelt, and the reason is simple – all the profits from our God given resources are externalized. A few weeks ago there was another news item on muvi TV, where workers working at the new stadium where complaining over ill- treatment by the Chinese.
