Hello everyone! It’s another day of the Afrobloggers challenge and today’s topic is “Comment on a trending current affairs topic.” so that’s what I’m doing.
I have always been interested in politics as it is generally an amusing concept. However, I was never really involved in Zambian politics because my opinion never really mattered. I couldn’t vote because of age issues lol. Now, I fully intend to vote in next years election because I know my vote will make a difference.
We need to keep ourselves updated with what’s going on in the country because whether you like it or not, regardless of where you are, it affects you. So my comment on Zambia’s current state of affairs and political game is, register to vote AND when the time comes to vote, do it. You might just be the “Plus 1” needed.
I hope my generation will be more interested in politics and we will be more involved. Asking questions even when they don’t want questions to be asked. Also, yesterday I witnessed the first “e-protest” that was held by Zambian youths and as different as that was, it was super impressive. Do whatever you can to be heard. I’m beginning to wonder how elections will be held should the pandemic still be a thing but we will cross that bridge when we get there. I’ll be back tomorrow!
Stay safe. Black lives matter. Stop sexual abuse.
Thanks for reading!
