GUEST ARTICLE: A call for unity and solidarity in the face of a Cholera outbreak


By Daimone Siulapwa

In times of crisis, the call for unity must be resounding, drowning out the noise of political affiliations.

No political leader should be permitted to gain political mileage from the suffering of our people.

This is a moment that requires selfless dedication to the well-being of our citizens, transcending party lines and individual ambitions.This crisis demands a collective effort.

Criticism should be constructive, focusing on solutions rather than mere condemnation.

If there are concerns about the UPND government’s handling of the situation, let us channel our efforts into offering viable alternatives to better navigate this crisis.

For UPND, true leadership emerges when political rhetoric is set aside, and a government is willing to embrace assistance from any quarter.

No government institution or employee should be allowed to play politics at the expense of lives of our innocent citizens.

Now is the time for HH and the UPND government to exhibit this leadership by welcoming support, irrespective of its origin.

As a nation, our appreciation should extend to the health workers and support staff battling this pandemic.

Let’s uplift the spirits of our volunteers and recognize their unwavering commitment to the well-being of our fellow citizens.

Minister Masebo also deserves commendation for her resilience in the face of unwarranted condemnation.

Acknowledging and supporting individuals who stand strong amidst adversity is crucial for fostering a sense of unity and determination.

This is not a moment for division but a call for unity and solidarity in the face of adversity.

As we navigate through this challenging period, let our rallying cry be one of unity and collaboration.

The cholera outbreak does not discriminate based on political affiliations, and neither should our response.

By setting aside differences, offering constructive solutions, and acknowledging the efforts of those on the frontlines, we can emerge stronger as a nation.

This is a defining moment for our collective resilience, and together, united as one, we shall overcome.
