Death of Lusaka Mayor sad

Daily Nation Newspaper - - READERS FORUM -

Ed­i­tor,

The trou­ble is that most Zam­bian men have a ma­cho at­ti­tude whether con­sciously or sub­con­sciously. They think they are in­vin­ci­ble. They don’t want to take care of their health. You hear them say things like ‘ ine nsh­inwa umuti’ ‘ ine nshiya kuli doc­tor’ ( I don’t take med­i­ca­tion, I don’t see doc­tors). Mean­while they have poor life­style habits: eat­ing poorly and drink­ing a lot. Be­cause of this, a lot of Zam­bian men just die. Check death records if you’re doubt­ing. This Mayor could have gone on med­i­cal leave to give his health a chance to re­cover. Now his wife has lost a hus­band, chil­dren a fa­ther. Sad. Then­esi Banda
