Caritas Zambia Press Statement on MPs Resignations


Dear all,
Kindly receive a timely Press Statement issued by Caritas Zambia on the continued, wasteful and unwarranted by-elections being caused by MPs who are behaving like political prostitutes.
Fraternally Yours in Christ,
Fr. Cleophas

Caritas Zambia… As we have already done on many occasions, we appeal to government to stop encouraging MP resignations through promises of jobs and other privileges. Where is the lean government the people of Zambia were promised if ministerial jobs are open for purchasing political patronage? It is shameful to see very high ranking government officials dancing and jubilating at MP resignation forums with full knowledge of the harm by-elections are causing on the weakest of our society. This is immoral and an act of inconsistency for a government that has proclaimed an option for the poor as a cornerstone of its governance values. The Zambian society must treat this behaviour with scorn and strong condemnation. READ MORE

    It is very sad! We cannot develop with this type of mentality. Those who are expected to lead are playing these games! This is very painful and should be combated strongly. May our African leaders learn from mistakes and give to the African people what they truly want! Please! We are tired of misery, injustices and misuse of the resources.

    This situation in Zambia by few very selfish people shall not lead us anywhere, and worse still, it shall not lead the PF to a destination it has been dreaming of. While numbers matter in Politics, but not in the way it is happening now. In the first place, these who are defecting, did they not see that MMD was going no where; and why on earth should PF even entertain such people. Within PF there are people who had fought and supported the Party for those seats, why leave them now in the cold?
    I believe that the President, as an individual, would not like this to happen because he knows this is eating the money that is supposed to be used on making the lives of the people of Zambia better.
    It is true as well-meaning Zambians, we should not allow this to go on. We must find a way of putting an end t
    o this.
