I thank him for decriminalizing defamation of the president, but the removal of capital punishment is a double edged sword – it is wrong and inconsistent with societal and biblical norms, as well as a mockery of justice. Let me demonstrate why this is the case. (1) Before we even begin to debate the issue of capital punishment, let us recall that capital punishment has existence in a social setting. There is a society...

Danger really? What a foolish name for our beautiful dog. These people from Katete don’t quite change. When I lived there in 1970 to 71, every other dog was called Danger! Ours was the only Tiger, till we relocated to Chipata where we found almost as many Tigers as Dangers and Bingos and Scoobies. Lions too but never other dangerous animals like Elephant or Hippo. The Danger...
