Happy Birthday Zambia

Zambia celebrated 45 years of independence from Britain on October 24. Zambia has had4 presidents (three of them in the last 15 years). Ascendancy to power has been through the ballot. Though problems exist at evry election (with allegations of vote rigging), the people of Zambia must be congratulated for respecting the rule of law. My birthday wish for Zambia is to see selfless young leaders to take up the challenge of leading. I respect what the founding fathers did but there comes a time to put new leaders into office. 45 years is long enough to trust that wisdom has been passed on. Well done Zambia.
