NUMSA can jump in the lake

It is all clear that there are serious attempts out there by the enemies of this Government to unseat PF next year at all costs so that they can get away with their crimes, especially the debts owed to the Government.

I therefore suspect that the so-called revolutionary National Union of Metal Workers of South Africa (NUMSA) which was in Lusaka recently was carefully invited to come and propound the useless ideals  of socialism by Kabimba.

And obviously the Post had to carry the stories of NUMSA which is failing in South Africa to sell socialism which our Rainbow Party is trying to introduce in Zambia.

So for me NUMSA can go and jump in the Victoria Falls or Limpopo River and I will not miss it because it is only adding confusion in our country.

NUMSA knows just too well that South Africa is where it is today,  an economic powerhouse, because of capitalism which always delivers.

So this union can sing all the hate songs about capitalism but its members will at the end of the day wear clothes, eat food, board  planes etc made by capitalism.

It is all clear that NUMSA was invited by Mr Kabimba to help sell the dead dogma to Zambians in the hope of forming government next year.

What I can tell Mr Kabimba is that he has an uphill battle to win the 2016 elections through socialism which definitely will be attention-grabbing and a hard nut to crack.

It will be a hard fight for the underlings.

However Mr Kabimba, I feel, is wasting time by claiming that the future of this country lies in socialism because it is an abandoned and superfluous ideology.

Capitalism, to the contrary, encourages the spirit of production, competition and hard work while socialism which puts industry in the hands of government has not worked in man y countries including Zambia.

These who were there will remember the days of mealie meal coupons by the Kaunda administration which turned out to be a big nuisance as a product of socialism.

I don’t think that Zambians can return to that system which promoted shortages of essential commodities.
