Chasowa is gone leaving us with a decisive war to wage. In this solemn hour it is a consolation to recall and to dwell upon our repeated efforts for freedom of academics and the marginalized. All have been ill-fated, but all will be achieved in a way that is both faithful and sincere. This moral conviction alone affords that ever-fresh resilience which renews the strength and energy of people in these long, doubtful and dark days of bitter dictatorship of Bingu wa Muthalika and his DPP. Outside, the storms of intimidations have blown and the lands are lashed with the fury of its gales, but in our own hearts this gives us a blessed assurance that there shall be conquest for us someday. The terminal bud of fresh youngman has been ruthlessly trimmed. As if that wasn’t enough, they proceeded to cheat us all that it was suicide. Why then did Dr Dzamalala, the pathologist, denied having given them such a faulty report? It is against our true and unbeclouded conscience to assume that standing aloof is the best solution when the few good men who voice out their concerns receive grave warnings. With a pounding chorus, we have to unison our hatred of this regime disregarding the threats which it is breathing to those who do so.

We must not underrate the gravity of the task which lies before. We must expect many disappointments, and many unpleasant surprises, but we may be sure that the task which we have freely accepted is one not beyond the compass and the strength of the mighty hearts who are ready to expose the evils done by this ndata king. They will torch our houses but not our integrity which we inherently deserve. If viewed soberly, we will see that the simple laws of justice demand that this regime should step down but because of the inborn greedy for power, lack of passion for humanity, they are justifying their evil deeds by sending this blank minded lady to come forward and show off her incurable ignorance

This is not a question of fighting for fame or fighting for wealth. We are fighting to save the whole country from the pestilence of DPP tyranny and in defense of all that is most sacred to man. This is no war of dominance or imperial aggrandizement or material gain; no war to shut any person out of his sunlight and means of progress. It is a war, viewed in its natural quality, to establish, on this impregnable landlocked country, the rights of the individual, and it is a war to establish and revive the stature of man. In these last few days the Parliament has been voting dozens of egoistic Bills which hand over to them our most dearly valued traditional liberties. We are sure that these liberties are in hands which will abuse them, which will use them for class or party interests, which will not cherish and guard them, and we look forward to the day, surely and confidently we look forward to the day, when our liberties and rights will be restored to us, and when we shall be able to share them with the peoples to whom such blessings are unknown. Like the South African youths who patriotically fought against the oppressive rule which their country was witnessing, we will also stand and take our turn because their nonsense is long overdue.
