We want or don’t want it , Dual Citizenship should be finally implemented and amendment as a clause into the New draft Constitution of Zambia, despite being opposed by President Mr. M.C. Sata, this deal must further recommended for Our National Interest and the future of Zambia.
This issue concerns families abroad and at home, families reunions is a must. Why being afraid or scared of great Zambians in the Diaspora ? The Old times of hijacking People’s Citizenship Rights is over and gone. And times of Dictators, Fascists or Communists is dead and buried for ever. No matter who are you in the Society Dual Citizenship is a must.
The coming of Multi-Party Democracy in Africa brought together alongside with human rights to Our People, including Freedom of Press, Freedom of Choice, Freedom to Exist and live, Freedom of life, and adoption of Dual Citizenship among Nations. No one can bar, or broke one’s birth rights of someone’s origination and destination in today’s times we are living in, not even the King or President or Traditional Chief of that territory or kingdom . Every human being belongs to his destination of Origination, and double Citizenship or Nationality is temporary. Your home always remains your home, and the is no better place than home.
The ideals of Free Enterprise and Democracy are complementary. The development and sustaining a strong middle class is essential to attainting stability in Zambia. Dual Citizenship has the propensity to bring this about. The future seems to provide a great promise ; Dual Citizenship will help to democratize the politics of Zambia. There are hundred upon hundred of children born to Zambian Nationals presently residing in the Diaspora. The Children with their dual Nationalities and exposures could help Zambia to navigate her destiny through the twenty-first century.
Democracy indeed, is built on informed Citizen – participation, especially those who have lived and practiced it in development Countries. The ideal of democracy is meaningful participation of an engaged and informed Citizenry.
Dual Citizenship is undoubtedly, one of the ways to foster Zambia’s future Economic development. Leopold Senghor of Senegal was correct when he said ‘’ To build a Nation, to create a new civilization which can lay claims to existence because it is humane, we shall try to employ not only enlightened reason but also dynamic imagination’’.
