EVEN IF YOUR WIFE OR RELATIVE IS QUALIFIED, THINK ABOUT ZAMBIANS FIRST-CHISHALA KATEKA
When will our Ministers be in the news for the right reasons?
In our nation, when a Minister is in the news, it is usually for the wrong reasons.
Just when will our Ministers, current and former, be in the news because they have done what they are supposed to do? Why must our Ministers nearly always be associated with corruption, nepotism or some other (social) scandal?
We are tired. Could our leaders please bear in mind the fact that they have a duty to the Zambian people to serve them to the best of their ability!
A Minister’s role includes but is not limited to the following:
- directing government policy and making decisions about national issues
- spending a lot of time discussing current national problems and how these can be solved
- presenting proposed laws—from their government departments.
The above should leave very little time for the what our leaders are now becoming well known for.
Why should leaders only leave a trail of looting…which only comes to the attention of the public after these leaders leave office – rather than leaving a trail of achievements?
In addition to the above Why on earth would the appointing authorities appoint members of the same family to top positions in a country where there are so many people that need jobs?
Even if those family members are qualified, wisdom dictates that you think about perception. What will the man on the street think about such appointments? And what is this appointing of your relatives to Procurement Departments?
All this is very upsetting.
When given an opportunity to lead this nation, please think about the Zambian people first!!!
