Dear Mr. President…

Dear Mr. President,

I hope you are well. You probably don’t know me but you certainly won’t forget me if you read this. I on the other hand can safely say I know a bit about you, I see you in the paper very often and I have to say I’m a fan of your height.

Now that the cheesy icebreaker is out of the way, we can get down to business. It’s election year again and I guess I’ll be seeing you quite a lot TV and online and more than ever people will be pleading that you take notice of their concerns. Since I’m not an avid follower of politics, I will just speak from my heart and not my head.

The reason I’m writing you is pretty simple: I’d like us to work together. Just like people try to achieve peace through different avenues; religion, Jack Daniels, communing with nature and taking up an AK-47, I feel that we both want to see our countrymen in a better position than they currently are only we’re employing different methods. While you try to make that possible through policy and directives in your capacity as head of state, I do the same by way of writing from my daily experiences, hoping someone out there finds something of value in my words. With your experience as a legal practitioner, I imagine you can bear witness to the fact that there is great potency in words.

I know that you’re a busy man, of course you are: it’s the top job in the land. That said, I would appreciate if you could spare a few minutes to read this letter and seriously consider my proposition. It’s important to me that we work more closely because as it has been said time and time again, two heads are better than one. Therefore, the idea of us working as partners towards a cause greater than our individual aspirations is worth contemplating.

You’ll also realise that what is genuinely good or beneficial to me is just as beneficial to you as you’re president and I’m your ward. Besides there is need to keep this newly opened line of communication constantly open as it will go a long way in helping us achieve our common goal of seeing an uplifted citizenry.

Yours faithfully,
Chifwanti Zulu

P.S. Best of luck in the elections

      When I wrote this my aim was just light satire but as I progressed I realised there’s more need for dialogue between the youth and the presidency. Just four days after writing this two of the country’s highest learning institutions were shut by govt coz of lack of dialogue on both sides. Guess I’m asking for a direct line to the prez, I want Zambian to start reading and ditch it’s poor reading culture
