Access to Information Bill: is this the start of New Dawn summersaults?

  By Nicholas Bwalya It is 20 years since proponents of the Access to Information (ATI) Bill begun their advocacy to have this important law enacted. Governments have come and gone, MMD and PF regimes all leaving the Bill to gather dust on the shelves of the Ministry of Information.   The PF government was even more daring than the MMD because in its manifesto of 2011 to 2016, the party pledged to enact the Bill into law. But as they say the rest is history. In a country that is among the top of the Corruption Perception Index, enacting...

“GOD IS NOT A SOCIALIST [On Labour, its Day, and Other Imperatives] ___________________ Neither is He a Capitalist,” prods Dr. Canisius Banda

GOD IS NOT A SOCIALIST [On Labour, its Day, and Other Imperatives] ___________________ Neither is He a Capitalist. On days like Labour Day, we must deeply reflect on the origins, wellbeing and future of work.

A curious and noteworthy phenomenon is that nearly all political parties in Zambia acknowledge God as the supreme authority of all guidance. This is encouraging, God being the embodiment of THE SOURCE. And yet, nearly all their manifestos do NOT accurately reflect this...

I saw a promising FUTURE in him, such an articulate and passionate young Zambian. But the Gary we are seeing today has MORPHED. I don’t know what he is high on or whether he is using drugs. He seems unhinged. He has become a monster, a dangerous creature...
