  EVENTS of the past few days point to the fact that unless leaders of political parties truly heed the call to order their cadres to stop the current wave of politically-engineered violence, the August elections could be a Waterloo for Zambia.

  THE revelation by Minister of Sport and Youth Vincent Mwale that the rate of defaulting is very high among Zambian youths who benefited from Government empowerment funds is shocking.
