UNITY QUOTE OF THE WEEK
The greatest enemy of man today, is self-preservation, which leads to injustice, corruption, jealousy, envy, unhealthy competition, selfish-gains, and all evils. Unity of Purpose, is the key to transformation from third to First world Nation Status. This is a bold, compelling and unifying Vision for all Zambians, to become a first world nation. We must now find a new way of listening, talking to each other in dialogue as a nation, and respect the views of others. Let us all promote Peace, love and Support, for our fellow Citizens, regardless of race, religion, gender, political affiliation and Status. Together, we can make Zambia a first world nation, in Africa and world, if we make it our Cause, greater than self-preservation. “One Zambia, One First World Nation”, is our Motto. Let us forgive, and Overcome self-preservation. Join us in the Movement to make Zambia a first world nation. Share with all, as we go in the week, and be part of a bigger cause, than yourself for mother Zambia. Your contribution to our nation’s well-being is your legacy. God bless our Republic.

WHAT FIRST WORLD ZAMBIA MEANS TO US?
Imagine a Zambia, which is in the G8 nations, and has a Permanent seat in the Security Council of the UN. Imagine a Zambia with a dominant economy, among great nations. Imagine a Zambia where rural under-development, and Urban Shanty Compounds, do not exist. Imagine a Zambia where our people have industries, where they have decent Jobs, not as casual workers exploited by investors. Imagine a Zambia with an aggressive industrialization agenda, which makes all benefit from the value of the Mines, as they share in the profits or windfall taxes from foreign multi-national corporations and other Cooperating partners. Imagine where Zambia is exporting from agriculture, Tourism is booming through creative, and transformative investments. Imagine a Zambia, which is a hub of business and banking center for the region, and world. That is what first world means. It is not about the history of nations who aligned with NATO in the past. It is about transformative industrialization, holistic development, and economic advancement of our nation in a holistic manner, sustainable, and not relative. Will you watch it happen, or you will make it happen? Join the Movement for National Transformation, and make Zambia a first world Nation, like great powers of the earth, as our Political party Vision and ideology.

EDUCATION AND YOUTHS
Education is not about the acquisition of knowledge. In Latin the word education is from a root called ‘eduo’, which means to draw out. This implies that, education is application of what one is taught, to make a contribution and value addition, or solve contextual problems of our nation. The repeated failure, to provide support for the Zambian Students in tertiary institutions, primary, and, secondary levels, requires a transformative approach, which is pragmatic, proactive, and not reactive. It is not enough to only build Infrastructure, but it is the development of the learners Mind to take us to first world development, that will determine our competitive edge, in the region, and around the world. Education is a right of every youth. Education for us is the knowledge bank for first world reforms in government after 2021. The Future of Zambia, is not only in the Youths, but shall be re-crafted, reformed and forged by the participation of Youths in national decision making processes. Therefore, it is the policy of our Movement for National Transformation, to change the direction of education to first world Standards. First, by reforming the education system, to be more centered on research for innovation, science and technology, and purposeful engagement, for practical skills. Secondly, all youths involved in violence, elicit drunkenness, and drugs, we need you to stop, and be part of forming a new first world Zambia. Keep your mind sober, and learn to learn, for national contribution. Join the Movement, and share with other youths, Zambia needs your contribution. Be a lifelong learner. The last lesson you learnt, is the last progress you made!
