Sata wants his face mounted on every building

Filed under: More News |

satanoticeAfter he was pre-empted and therefore failed to impose his portrait on the rebased Kwacha, dictator Michael Sata has now ordered that his ugly face be mounted on every building and public place.

This is the first time since another dictator Kenneth Kaunda left office in shame that the taxpayers will finance a project to put someone’s face all the country.

In countries ruled by popular and functioning leaders, citizens do not need to be forced to put portraits of their leaders in their offices but do so willingly.

But dictators impose their portraits and statues on the public.

According to the order issued by cabinet office on behalf of Sata, the portrait of the dictator must be mounted above 2 metres and must be visible in every building.

The mounting of Sata’ s face is mandatory meaning one can be arrested for failing to mount the portrait of the dictator.

  7. Read the sentence. Have you been to school? If you have, you must have failed in English. It says, “mounted on every building” not in offices. It means even at your cabin if you have any, which I doubt.

      • I read the article to mean “on every building and public places” and that it the difference from previous Presidents and the requirement as per constitution. We may end up having ukwa’s picture in churches and private buildings, which is wrong. That would be Halloween every where 24/7 for Zambia.

      3)_ the gvt needs to print text books for schools
      4)clinics and gvt hospitals need my hard earned money to print cards etc. Now looking at the above where do you put your priority? Looking at those ugly faces on your wall that will printed on weekly basis because firing and hiring new but ugly faces or printing text books for schools? One has to go either those heads or social amenities have to suffer. Remember its our money at work and those heads do not pay tax

    Every head of state has had his potrait displayed in all public office.
    This trend is world over.
    You are a biased press bent on bringing choes in the country.
    You want people to uprise againt sata.
    two wrongs do not make a right.
    if you as individuals feel sata has wronged then it is not befitting as a human to commit another wrong.
    May be you had wanted sata to appoint you as his spokesman and when he did not,you now want to belittle him.

KK, Chiluba, Mwanawasa, and even RB all had their protraist displayed in public buildings and govt offices – it’s just portraits displayed in the reception areas of public buildings.
