ZAMBIA’S POLITICAL BLACK HOLE

0

Spacecom defines “Black Holes” as “….some of the strangest and most fascinating objects found in outer space. They are objects of extreme density, with such strong gravitational attraction that even light cannot escape from their grasp if it comes near enough.”
Albert Einstein first predicted black holes in 1916 with his general theory of relativity. The term “black hole” was coined in 1967 by American astronomer John Wheeler, and the first one was discovered in 1971.
It is a known fact that you cannot see a black hole because no light escapes from it.

RELATIVE CENTENARY

As we approach the centenary of Albert Einstein’s 1916 prediction of existence of black holes in physics, in 2015 I believe I may have discovered a political Black Hole. You may not be able to see it because like Einstein’s Black Hole in physics, no light escapes from it.
If you apply Einstein’s theory of relativity then the ninety nine years from 1916 make this the centenary since Einstein predicted Black Holes through his Theory of Relativity.
Three years to the month six Zambian Opposition political parties jointly condemned the suspension of three Supreme and High court Judges by Republican President Michael Sata. The six parties went on to call for the resignation of the Director of Public Prosecution Mutembo Nchito.

KING BUTTERFLY AND HIS MINIONS

The statement on behalf of the six opposition leaders and parties was made by ADD President Charles Milupi. The “King Butterfly” Milupi was speaking on behalf of the beautiful and colorful opposition butterflies in the name of the Heritage party, the United Party for National Development, Movement for Multi Party Democracy, United Liberal Party, Alliance for Democracy Development and Zambia Direct Democracy.
UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema passionately and emphatically stated that there are too many allegations against Mr. Nchito which bring disrepute to the office of the DPP which anchors the whole criminal justice system in Zambia.
Mr. Milupi in strongly chastising Nchito said that this is why they will not support interference in the judiciary under the pretext of fighting corruption.

He said that President Sata is giving an impression that he is trying to protect his partisan interests because of the judgment that involved one of the Judges Nigel Mutuna who issued a judgment that ordered DPP Mutembo Nchito and Post Newspaper owner Fred M’membe to pay back the K14 billion loan they owe the Development Bank of Zambia through the defunct Zambian Airways.

Mr. Milupi, with nostrils flaring with indignation, said that it was unimaginable that a judge can be punished for protecting tax payers’ money.

ANTIMATTER SCIENCE AFFLICTS OPPOSITION

Three years later two of the six political butterfly leaders got sucked into the previously unseen political black hole. This is where the bombardment of antimatter which has been defined In particle physics, as material composed of antiparticles which have the same mass as ordinary particle matter but have opposite charge and properties.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE THREE YEARS MAKE

 

The political Black Hole filled with political antimatter leads to the marked difference that three years can make.

Today we see some of the people who were leading the clarion call for Nchito’s blood lining up at the head of the line to donate blood to transfuse into the now anemic DPP.

Edwin Sakala, Dr. Nevers Mumba, Brigadier General Godfrey Miyanda, and Sakwiba Sikota did not suffer reverse metamorphism like Charles Milupi and Hakainde Hichilema did. The former four are still butterflies and the latter two have transformed due to the vagaries of the political black hole into caterpillars.

What a difference three years can make !

REVERSE METAMORPHISM IN ZAMBIAN POLITICS

In the natural world we have seen marvels such as metamorphism that turns the ugly belly crawling caterpillar into the beautiful floating butterfly. In the political black hole however, the effects of antimatter is to create a reverse metamorphism that turns the beautiful butterfly into the ugly caterpillar.

The two butterflies sucked into the political black hole have now become the chief cheerleaders for Mutembo Nchito and are on the brink of petitioning the Vatican to evoke the process of Beatification and Canonization leading to the Sainthood of Nchito.

FROM BUTTERFLY TO TWO BY TWO CATERPILLAR

This antimatter bombardment is what has led to the difference three years make and the reverse metamorphism rampant in Zambia’s political black hole. From butterfly to two by two caterpillar.
