On the Chief’s Going to the HR

This week the President of the Republic goes to parliament to deliver his annual report to the Assembly of the Republic. This is a constitutional dictate that has been observed in a systematic way over the years since the first multiparty elections in 1994. It is (or should be) an important moment when the President of the Republic makes an honest, objective radiography, as close as possible the reality of the facts. It must not be a time of political party exaltation of endless hossanas, in which the chief is elevated to the stratosphere as if he were a supernatural being. Who does not remember the infamous sayings of the ladies Verónica Macamo and Margarida Talapa when at this time they referred to Chembene as the Unquestionable Guide of Us all; The Most Beloved Son, etc. The president has to do an analysis on what was planned (PES), what materialized (evaluating the degree and quality of implementation), what was missing and explain why it was not materialized. The report must reflect the main challenges facing the Mozambican nation, the fracturing problems that threaten our integrity, uniqueness and existence as a sovereign state. It must be clear about how the government plans to overcome such problems to improve the lives of Mozambicans who are at the cyclical crossroads of violence. It is not a time for concealment, cynicism and political-institutional arrogance. the fracturing problems that threaten our integrity, uniqueness and existence as a sovereign state.

Unfortunately, I do not see any substantial change in political behavior. Some will say that the chief took a faithful X-ray of the problems facing the nation. Others will say that the report was superficial and that it did not bring anything interesting and does not reflect the objective reality. ALL OF US will observe situations in which the boss will be interrupted to be applauded even when referring to the various calamities that are plaguing us. And this is where a tremendous paradox resides: in the questioning sessions to the government in the AR, the executive has boasted that he is 90 or 100% of the execution of the PES, but the boss, appears and says that this or that aspect was not implemented by blah, blah, blah and there are the flatterers clapping for something that has not been achieved. The RA is made up of young people with some formal education. However, the political debate has no quality. With a few exceptions, as a general rule they are flocks of flatterers by their bosses. Such deputies lack elevation, sense of state and patriotism. They are concerned with making beautiful according to the style of the house in which they belong, some because they want to be ministerable and others because they want to guarantee their presence in the hemicycle to continue enjoying the benefits that the house (AR) offers as WE to whom they are supposed to represent we die of starvation! Our fate is sad. Adapting what a great friend of mine and an excellent anthropologist, we are going through dark moments when a title such as “The Unspeakable Pain of Political Debate in the AR” lives up to the reality of the national political spectrum. sense of state and patriotism in such deputies.
