The revolution will not be televised
By Kampamba Mabuluki

"Those who let the murderers of blacks remain free, protecting them, and furthermore punishing the black populations because they demand their legitimate rights as free men -- how can those who do this consider themselves guardians of freedom?"

Ernesto "Che" Guevara de la Serna, 1964 at the United Nations

[pic]

Ernesto Guevara de la Serna was born June 14 and died 1928 – October 9, 1967. Commonly known as Che Guevara, El Che or just Che was an Argentine-born Marxist revolutionary, political figure, and leader of Cuban and internationalist guerrillas.

It’s been 40 years now since the assassination of a great leader, revolutionary and mentor to many of his followers. Yet 40 years on we still celebrate his life, his ideals and legacy.
On Monday the 8th of October fans and followers of all ages and all walks of life ...view middle of the document...

Che was a selfless and above all challenged the conventional wisdoms and ideals that did and still govern many aspects of our society by being a rebel. His radical and charismatic attitude fought and championed injustice as well as inequality, the enemy which infringes on the freedoms of human life. His main belief and ideal was that there was a better way to improving the quality of human life by promoting free education, better health care and employment conditions at grass root levels. Practicing what he preached is one of Che’s traits we hold in high esteem. He was a benevolent leader who not only led but also voluntarily participated in activities of manual labor and physical work.

They say the oppressor has already been crushed, yet like a beast with many heads its taken different shapes and forms. Hence like he and his followers did in his time, we as today’s revolutionaries need to arm ourselves with skills and knowledge that will build and empower the masses.

Times and situations are still rife, yet the desire and will for change is their in the hearts of the people. Leaders like Che taught us how to use the flame of desire in our hearts to ignite the fires of change. The great Che’s ideals on social injustice still ring true and echo strongly and are very relevant to the current state of our society.

What better way to remember this great revolutionary and advocate but by continuing his great legacy and love for humanity but by adopting his ideals to our current situation in Zambia.
The illiteracy levels in Zambia are among the highest in the world, in effect having a negative effect on our economy and society. Crime is high because of high poverty levels in the biggest part of our society. Che’s solution to these problems was establishing basic schools in every community, clinics and advocating for the equal distribution of wealth at all levels of society.

Though communism may have lost its fire, Che remains the potent symbol of rebellion and the alluring zeal of revolution. We celebrate his life and the revolution by saying: Viva la revolution
