WHY CORRUPTION TALK IS POPULAR IN ZAMBIA
The reason why childish Chishimba Kambwili and the cartel harp on corruption endlessly is because it is a subject that sales.
Corruption tugs at the heart of people. It evokes envy and jealousy. It is the stuff that politics is all about, namely access to resources to share with friends and kin.
The struggle for political power is no more than an attempt to reach the honeypot. Of course politicians will not say this out rightly, but the truth is that all politicians want to have access to power and the ability to disburse national resources.
Those aspiring to power will always portray those these wielding it as reckless and corrupt politicians who should be voted out of office. While those in power will protect their privilege.
It is up to the electorate to sift through the verbiage and establish what the truth is and not simply swallow every accusation hook, line and sinker.
Far too many Zambians are gullible and will accept any hogwash from people who have huge axes to grind especially those who have been fired from lucrative ministerial positions. They will cry blue murder and massive corruption because the President is building houses.
These people want to play emotional games with Zambians by suggesting rather than providing tangible evidence to prover corruption. They hope mere allegations will tarnish the image of the targets of their attacks. Thois is cheap politics and should be treated with the contempt that it deserves.
Those alleging corruption must bring tangible proof or simply shut up. Norman Ngenda.
