The obsession with which PF leaders are intoxicated with against HH’s noble humanitarian gestures to fellow citizens is abhorrent and absurd.
It doesn’t need a debate that the people of Chawama need a generator at Chawama Hospital in order to cope with the massive and unprecedented load shedding, caused by the PF’s own poor planning, and subsequent failure to diversify hydro electricity generation, to other alternative sources of energy.
This has been an outstanding issue at the institution whose catchment area is 200,000 people. No one in the PF including their current MP and his predecessor have come out with a workable solution to help patients at Chawama hospital.
The current generator donated by President Rupiah Bwezani Banda during the MMD, at the request of Neighborhood Health Committee of which I was the Chairman broke down years ago.
But when President Hakainde Hichilema extends a humanitarian hand by offering to donate a generator, to ease the nightmares due to load shedding with which both patients and doctors are subjected to, the whole PF goes into concert and hell breaks loose.
The other day Bowman Lusambo mocked President Hichilema’s humanitarian intention to donate mealie meal to hunger stricken people in Chongwe suggesting that he instead donates to his people in Bweengwa and the cows of Southern Province and we all know he was referring to our people there.
Now Dora Siliya repeats the same narratives that President Hichilema must not donate the generator to the people of Chawama but to the of Bweengwa and yet staff at Chawama Hospital currently use candles.
As an Easterner myself like Dora Siliya, and most importantly as a patriot who loves his Country, this shameful tribal behaviour from PF leaders embarrasses me to the core.
Should I only be expected to extend humanitarian help to the people of Eastern Province because that’s where I come from? What sort of politics are these? I call upon the people of Chawama and indeed all citizens to have a close look at this.
