Is Education a right? Part 1 -by:Gabriel Kwanja 22/03/2010

By:Gabriel Kwanja 22/03/2010   Education is a right indeed. An interest that should be recognized and is protected by law. This right should be enjoyed by everyone of this world regardless of background or creed. Education should go beyond sex, tribe, race, colour and class in society. It is supposed to bury the difference between the poor and rich.  Education has stages and different areas of interest; certainly every stage and area of study are very important and should be treated with equal importance in development. The Marxist believes that a strong base will support a good structure and a...

The Proposed Refinancing Strategy of US $750 Million Eurobond Might Lead Zambia into a Sovereign Debt Crisis

The Proposed Refinancing Strategy of US $750 Million Eurobond Might Lead Zambia into a Sovereign Debt Crisis

Contact Mr. Andrew Simpasa for further clarifications on 0977765775 or simpasa@yaho..com The planned engagement of a private company to pay off Zambia’s US$ 750 million Eurobond is a disaster in-waiting. JCTR is apprehensive with regard to use of a private equity to refinance the country’s Eurobond as the cost of the external debt might become too exorbitant to bear in the medium to long-term. To this end, this might further exacerbate the country’s foreign debt which currently stands at a staggering US$9.3 billion. Recently, the Ministry of Finance, in the 2018 First Quarter Economic Performance Report, announced that, “management of...

It is the Matriarch Midwifery! by Dr. Mulindi Munahamunthu

It is the Matriarch Midwifery! The World Health Organization has done much work on ensuring that women do not die in the process of giving birth. The process of giving birth has three main components: 1. Pregnancy (9 months) 2. Child bearing (10hrs of labour) and 3. Some 42 days after the baby is delivered. If the mother dies in any of these three processes of child bearing, it is regarded a needless preventable maternal morality and it points a finger to poor health systems. Such deaths denote a failure by the health system. Over the last 40 years, national...

Very few people buy food with nutritional values in mind due to economic pressures they face. The money may not be suffice to buy required food which contains vitamins and minerals which are necessary for the body. However, when...
