Let UNIP die...

A strange plea from Edwin Sakala(ZDDM) to First Republican President Kenneth Kaunda to help revive UNIP :

Mr. Sakala noted that UNIP is the only political party with a rich historical background and needs to be protected from total collapse. He said the party should not be allowed to die as this would deny the new generation the chance to know why people sacrificed their lives for self rule adding that this would help them appreciate the importance of independence.
What Edwin needs to realise is that death gives birth to new life. It is good for parties like UNIP to die, so that new parties with new ideas can emerge. Schumpeterian creative destruction is not only critical for capitalism but for the political process as well.

  1. I don't think that's a good idea to let a party that ruled the country for 27 years just die. UNIP will raise again just give it time.
