THROUGH the columns of your reputed Newspaper, I wish to bring to the attention of the public the urgent need for a change of mind-set.
Some people are stranded because they programmed their mind that the government is responsible for making their lives better.
Living a life waiting for a day the government will come and improve our lives can be frustrating because we don’t know if that day will ever come or not.
I am not against people depending on the government to improve their livelihood; I am against people embracing a mind-set of depending on the government for everything.
That is until the government helps them, they cannot do anything to make a better living for themselves.
I believe it is high time we started thinking of what we should do for our country unlike waiting for what mother Zambia will do for us. The earlier we develop this kind mind-set, the better for us and our country at large.
Imagine a situation where everyone is thinking of what they can do for our country, we can have some development in most parts of the country because people will become more responsible.
Lastly, I wish to state that one of the ways we can develop as a country is when we begin to add value to our country and we can only add value to our country when we stopping looking for who to help us and start improving ourselves with what we have.
