But time and chance happen to them all…

Dear Diary,

We will lead the country one day. Keep the faith! #DZP2036

Apologies for being away for far too long. I have been caught up in the pinnacle of my political science studies; I have to put in my all and unleash my full potential. This degree is for Zambia.

BTW, a lot has transpired over the past year, you ought to meet Maya.


I pen these thoughts at 4:15 am, after having a ‘deep’ conversation with Success Sibanda, a brilliant comrade from Zimbabwe, pertaining to what our future holds. Despite my health being a challenge (food poisoning, I am now fine thanks!), we discuss ‘life’, because like everyone else, we fear for the future. What if our dreams do not get fulfilled? What are we going to do for the world? What if we give nothing to the world and fail to change what we aspire to change?  We asses these questions and rekindle our hopes that we will be alright. One notable conclusion we made is that if you want your life to be unhappy, compare it to others. These words may not be new to you, but always remember this as taught by King Solomon, the man who is believed to be the wisest to ever grace this earth.

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. Ecclesiastes 9:11

The lesson is simple folks, your story is different. Keep on keeping on, do not give up, your time and chance are on their way. This was meant to encourage someone who is worried about their future, somebody who is about to give up on their job, education, startup etc. Believe. ‘Time and chance happen to all.’

Success and I laugh about how our lives have changed over the past year and the drastic changes that have taken place. This gives us hope.


The Future President of Zambia
