Citizen’s View: Let’s Face It; Zambians Are Cheap Time Wasters

There is a story of a purportedly ugly lady wedding a supposedly handsome man. A popular Facebook site has even substantiated the issue through a story whose main story is that the lady has a boutique and that’s what attracted the man thus an economic marriage.

This confirms that this country is more committed to people’s personal issues than national development. How can a normal human being write a story to disparage someone’s looks? The lady, with her man, should be going through a tough time (mental torture and ridicule) as human beings because of criminals posing to be journalists. I urge colleagues who are close to these souls to please support them.

Such crap has a lot of following and that’s attractive to our base thinking capacity. Our education system should be revised to promote critical thinking and move us from mundane, low reflection. You will find that most people posting this even claim to worship the God who made the lady.

In more progressive countries, this is nothing. They don’t talk about personal issues. And who defines beauty? I urge those colleagues who reason with this to please pull the post down. Let’s teach our children to be broader than this so that in their generation, development and human rights will dominate more than tribalism, personality and ‘Ubuntu-lessness’…

      Once an old man by the name of Munkombwe told me something I still agree with today at Kalundu Motel, Choma. We were having breakfast and near us were the two shatell ladies, Joe Chibangu and other musicians having their breakfast as well. He looked at the two ladies, Imboela and Saboi and said “God is all wise indeed. Do you see the nice thighs of these two ladies? You will find that many ugly looking ladies are sweeter than them in bed.” So don’t judge the book by its cover. You never know what ecstasy the guy reaches during hammer time. You would go mad yourself and never return to your wife and children.

    You heard for yourselves. I can’t even rub it in more clearly. Ishuko lyamunobe tekuti iwe wendelemo. The Journalist/s should remember to do Practical Criticism. Give the couple chance to enjoy their holy matrimony in which they were sworn in. Let what God has put together NO man put AS UNDER. Comment

    Indeed “Who defines beauty?” each person is beautiful in their own unique way and anyone who thinks they are better at defining beauty than the Creator let them start by looking at and defining their parents and siblings before venturing out! A piglet looking at the mother sow exclaimed “Oh my! How ugly you look!” with a grunt she responded “Only time will correct you!”

    You know what? God created good but man’s choice was for both good and bad.So let the people have the freedom to comment what they like.It is only in new Jerusalem were you shall find good comments only and not on planet earth.So people should just learn how to overcome such comments.

    Time and again it has shown that most zambians or rather most zambians commenting on social media are ignorant and sometimes one would wonder if we all really have normal mental abilities basically and common… Certain ignorancy is really scarely, yet sime of these bloggers are graduates and further claim to be christian… It’s amazing…

    A friend of mine married what I thought was the most beautiful woman in the world. When I told him so, he replied sadly that if I could see the inside of her I would quickly swallow my compliments. I learned from him that real beauty lies in someone’s heart. There are countless beauties in the world who are sending their husbands insane through their despicable act hating husband’s relative, laziness, or even unfaithfulness. Please leave the guy alone. He has not married the salon but his love and happiness. Take a very critical look at your spouse and you’ll certainly spot one area that should not be there. And what about you? You are not as beautiful as you think!

    in my experience ugly chicks tend to be sweeter in bed. Also,the smaller a woman’s ass is or narrower her hips are, the sweeter she is in bed.

    Goes to show Zambians have nothing to talk about as we starting to ridicule the President on this. Remember that lady despite her looks in your dirty eyes is your MOTHER/SISTER/AUNT etc. Respect GOD’s creations.
