Stella Sata, The ‘Jobless 6′ And The Tomato Theory.

Stella Sata with Late President Michael Sata


Stella Sata, has come under attack after challenging graduates to start selling tomatoes rather than holding placards outside shopping malls and other public places, protesting against unemployment.

When Stella Sata spoke out, the first thing which came to a lot of people’s mind is her good and smooth life against, an average man’s struggle for survival, 5 years of suffering at UNZA/ CBU then a rich man’s kid comes and rubbishes all the effort by qualifying a graduate to a tomato seller.

The nation has condemned Stella Sata’s statement not because what she said was wrong but I believe, its a case of who said it.

The young woman is the late Presidents daughter, as a society we presume she was born with a gold spoon in her mouth and all she has achieved in her life was because her parents worked for it. To me, engaging in a level minded debate which requires some intellect caliber, Is very health in our society. Our level of debates has gone to the dogs.

Selling of tomatoes might be a metaphor statement which doesn’t literally mean a graduate should fold their sleeves at soweto market and begin selling K2 tomato. In my level headed mind I understand she was stressing a point of innovative and creativity among the graduates and honestly speaking Stella Sata is not the first person to challenge graduates to start up something rather than waiting for the government to do ‘something’ .

Unemployment is not just a Zambian problem, its a very big problem even in big developed economies like Russia, USA, China and England. Its a global issue which needs a lot of hard work and planning.

What Stella Sata should have done right now is not to challenge the graduates to start selling tomatoes, our issue is with the government to first change our curriculum from this passive, job prepared careers to an aggressive skilled and independent enterprising syllabus. Then we need also an enabling environment for Small and Medium Entrepreneurs. The words selling tomatoes sounded sarcastic because the person who said it is presumably a rich man’s kid.

And in the unwritten rules of society rich people are never allowed to SAY negative of the poor instead they are expected to HELP (with material). That’s the unwritten rule of society.

The commonly coined “jobless6″ represents the unemployed graduates, arresting, intimidating and suppressing them won’t solve anything. What the government ought to do, is to look at what those Nationals plan. Engage stakeholders and find a lasting solution to alleviate unemployment.

All over the world if people protests, governments listens, if our government is not willing to listen then let them leave office.

This is not a political issue, unemployment is an economical issue which needs the input of everyone regardless of political preferences.
