FDD president Edith Nawakwi has been told off that she should just concentrate on growing tomatoes.
Nawakwi who is also a farmer has been told to sit down and concentrate on growing tomatoes than commenting on the economic problems the country is going through.
‘You re the same woman that has shown tribal hatred ! Just sit down and continue growing tomatoes and keeping Pigs,’ Political Commentator Nchimunya Chiiya told off Ms Nawakwi on her Facebook post.
Ms Nawakwi in a post stated that the country had alot of potential to prosper but said there is so much hatred.
She wondered whether Zambia was a cursed country that she has failed to identify the opportunity.

Chiiya was commenting on Ms Nawakwi’s post below:
Zambia is land of limitless opportunities. The only problem we have is that we don’t love each other.

We have the minerals and our Zambia National Service -ZNS is lubricating their equipment every week. I wish we could give them one manganese mine to excavate and raise money to even pay some of our debt.

I always wonder if I had a chance, I would have given a concession of manganese mine and emerald mine to Zambia Army and Zambia Prisons Service and equip them with all the requirements and the skills they need to work in the mining industry.

Unfortunately, all the nice spots including rare earth have been given to foreigners. How on earth can you give a rare earth deposit as if you are giving away a goat for a family picnic? We are just enemies of ourselves.

Even if God comes back he will weep us all with a Mukula tree into satan’s cage and we shall all perish.

We have our ZNS with all the equipment being greased weekly with tax payers money and somehow some of the miners hire our ZNS equipment.

Just take note Zambian’s; a carat of emerald is $6,000 while a ton of copper is $6,000. Our mining engineers are unemployed, our ZNS have the equipment and we the people have the minds. WHERE IS THE DISCONNECT? Is it mental, physical or simply a curse?

These are my thoughts. What do you think?

  1. Madam Nawakwi, corrupting the military further with a profit motive is a recipe for disaster. Learn from Egypt where the military controls over 40% of the economy, learn from Sudan, from Zimbabwe. Do you understand why the military in Egypt and other countries is very keen to turn their guns on citizens for merely demonstrating? It threatens the profit of the military establishment which is heavily invested in business. We do not need a military driven by a profit motive ( and the associated self interest) rather than service. Go back to the drawing board madam Nawakwi. On paper, we can vote out corrupt politicians but we will not be able to vote out corrupt generals.

  2. it’s out of ignorance for the former Finance Minister to propose that AND be given a manganese or emerald mine.
    be informed that ZNS has mines in the kamakanga emeralds area and its a sorry site. bricked GRZ machinery,inactivity,deserted, etc.
    in your time as Finance Minister,did any of thse mines pay any dividends from profits? YOU SUBSIDISED IT.
    So don’t try failed projects again.
