KAGAME has said NO to the retrogressive Western engineered multiparty democracy system that tends to retard development.
In Zambia today, it’s rare to find an opposition leader discussing solutions to the various issues people are faced with. Instead, they all discuss how to remove Edgar Lungu and one wonders just how derailing his economic development programs can ever help an ordinary child in rural Zambia.
One equally wonders why one would be opposed to Lungu’s Universal Health Coverage or shoot down an enhanced Bill of Rights. We need a governance system that will prioritise economic development over the current political system that focuses on how one can best remove a sitting Head of State.
Let’s accept this FACT: Western democracy has achieved very little in terms of economic development in Africa but has perfectly been a tool by the West to cause inefficient governments, disastrous power transitions and social chaos. Patriotic Zambians with progressive minds ought to support our call for a national symposium on an alternative governance system for Zambia that must seek to promote a nation with a common goal.
There is need to look more to the East than to the West if we have no respect for our own traditions.
