President Mugabe

By Bowman Lusambo

As SADC leaders gather in Harare, Zimbabwe for the extraordinary summit, we wish to take this opportunity to express our admiration for Zimbabwean President Robert Gabriel Mugabe.

The summit is themed around industrialisation and it is apt that the gathering is in Zimbabwe, a country that has undergone several phases of industrialisation and one that provides credible lessons to the rest of the SADC region on the benefits of industrialisation.

We wish to appeal to SADC leaders to take their deliberations on the industrialisation strategy for the region seriously and adopt concrete steps that will see the region become an industrial powerhouse and one that does not export raw commodities but emphasises on value addition.

As the leaders preach industrialisation, we wish to remind the rest of the region that industrialisation cannot take place without the empowerment of the local people.

Real industrialisation should be focused around local benefits for the local people which are a common theme in President Mugabe’s policies.

As MMD youths, we also took great interest in President Mugabe’s state visit to South Africa recently, his first in 20 years and we were immensely impressed by President Mugabe’s ideals on the development path that Africa should take.

Contrary to western propaganda, we discovered that President Mugabe’s means well for his people and his leadership values ought to be emulated by all emerging leaders in Africa.

As young politicians, we have decided to adopt President Mugabe’s philosophies as a panacea for the development of the African continent.

President Mugabe has never committed any atrocities as portrayed by the western media. The only crime President Mugabe has committed is to enforce provisions of the Lancaster Agreement that the administration of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher signed with Zimbabwe on land redistribution.

We wish to place it on record that failure to adopt President Mugabe’s policies across the African continent will condemn its inhabitants to years of poverty and under developed.

All African government’s including the Zambian government must emulate Zimbabwe and its policies that will empower their people economically.

Land is a great economic resource which should be in the hands of indigenous people as we have seen in Zimbabwe.
We should never allow foreigners to own and piece of land in Zambia or else we will end up with the situation in Gabon where foreigners from France own most of the land in Gabon including oil deposits leaving out local Gabonese.

We call upon all well meaning young politicians in Africa to study President Mugabe’s policies with the aim of continuing with his legacy once the Almighty God takes him away from the face of the Earth.

We also wish to call upon all western government’s including the US to immediately remove all sanctions imposed on President Mugabe, his family, his Ministers and the people of Zimbabwe.

It is clear that the social and economic problems present in Zimbabwe have been manufactured by the western government through ill motives and time has now come for these harsh sanctions to be removed.

  1. Lusambo is the worst idiot among idiots walking the streets of Zambia.
    He is always making useless comments, just because EL has aligned himself to Mugabe the later has became a saint,

    Where was he during Mwanawasa leadership? because Mwanawasa were not seeing eye to eye with Mugabe. How do you support someone who has run down the nation?

  2. Lusambo is an idiot of the highest disorder.Mugabe is not only despotic but a murderer. I hope Lungu is not being tutored in Zanupf terror tactics during elections. Zimbabweans are not only maimed but killed by zanupf thugs during campaigns for elections, this should not imported to zambia by Lungu.

  3. That’s why our country is in such a state worshiping a dictator and calling him an inspiration. Chaps like bow don’t even read history ati Mugabe never committed any atrocities. are you kidding? We are all not cadres we take time to read and follow history so Mr. Bow whatever keep your ignorance to yourself. He has ruined Zim and blaming the west won’t help. You think someone over 90 should still be president? Everybody else retires at 60 or 65!!!

  5. Mugabe is not as bad as many people see him to be, if only Africans can have new ideas to develop their land. Things cannot be as they are. The problem is that they are too timid to do new things no one has ever done. How they hated sata for doing new things in the country even creating new districts was an issue. even adding a new province enraged some dull educated characters who cannot see beyond their village. People need to engage their minds and be innovative , not only going through routine, indeed that is my worry for Africa
