Letter: It’s Fantasy To Think You Can Use Sata’s Name To Be President

We all aspire to be great in life & leave a legacy that will inspire others. But this is not an easy task as it requires hardwork,dedication,hard work,tolerance,self denial,patience and knowing what you really want in life. God ordains what he wants one to be in life,and not money,wealth,authority,or ones status in society otherwise everyone would have been the president of America.

It is not bad to admire or be inspired by someone,but its a taboo to think and believe that you can do things exactly the same like the person who inspired you. We are made differently & our abilities are also different. As human beings,we have our own strengths & weaknesses which are different from one person to the other.

Today we have people in the political arena who think that they can be Presidents of Zambia by using Sata’s name. They play the copy and paste type of politics. They cant bring new ideas,no convincing message to the Zambians apart from politics of character assassination. Sata was able to touch an ordinary Zambian youth with the message of hope. He was sarcastic sometimes,that was his weakness. He made scandals and at some point called those who called for the quick enactment of the constitution as yapping. What i mean here is that Sata was human who was prone to error.

Mr Sata was a real politician. He was fearless, experienced & principled man. Today he is no more & some people want to capitalize on his demise to gain cheap political mileage. Even those who called him names like Ukwa, Chimbwi no Plan want to use his name to seek sympathy vote from Zambians.

President Sata knew what to say & how to say it,to convince Zambians unlike some of we are seeing now who make noise for the sake of impression. It was not easy for Sata to become president & so people should not waste their time thinking that a mere mention of Sata’s name will take them to plot one,otherwise they maybe living in a world of fantasy. Convince Zambians with the message of hope not bitterness & jealous,hatred & bullishness. Be humble & realize that money wont buy presidency. God is the one who appoints leaders and at his own time. Sata is gone,he ran his race & left a legacy. Mwanawasa had his time just like Chiluba.

No one will ever be Sata,so create your own way of doing politics otherwise you will die wishing to be Michael Sata. With hard work Sata died a sitting president. His quote, ‘If talking was an industry,Zambia would have prospered’

    The writer is somehow a poor fool cadre cause all I know is that data and the entire pf regime are failures. I got no time for praising someone blindly either dead or alive facts will always be facts. Too much bufi mu animal farm walebepa Tata bufi

      Personally i saw nothing that even remotely resembled good leadership traits in Sata.He is the worst thing to have ever happened in Zambian politics.He is the one who brought misfits into the limelight,and it is like he was more comfortable in the company of mediocre characters.Even for those that were educated he chose mediocre people.For economists he had Chikwanda,for Lawyers he had the likes of Kabimba,for Doctors he had the likes of Nkandu Luo,in short the man thrived in mediocrity and since there is so much of it in Zambia he appealed to a large electorate who up to today are yet to appreciate the damage he caused.

    If identical twins born on the same day but minutes appart do not possess same finger prints and their thoughts are far appart, how difficult it is to go and wear another man’s shoe and claim they fit. Comment

    Lesson is simply cannot climb a tree from the branches. Learn the ropes. You can only be a good commander if you learnt how to obey orders. Data worked deligently under KK .

  15. Fyakubantu mwanya

    Yes better leave sata alone be you pfs or you upnds. Ala tamukwete fyakulanda!? There is no one in politics like him.

  16. Pkmolo

    Here in Zambia we have too much jealous and hatred. Because you can’t turn fish into snack.

    Whether you like it or not, Michael sata can’t be replaced ! For he was the best politician Zambia has ever seen.

  20. Mumba Matthews

    Zambia will never find the substitute for Michael sata. He was simply the maverick. I miss my man. Rest in peace visionary!

  21. Samiwe

    He was a good leader.

  22. Noel

    Hope you won’t be praising the people you looking down on today when they are gone just like you are doing to the late legendary president Mr. MC Sata. In as much as I remember,the people who insulted him then praise him today. Remember we are watching!
