Election falsehoods

Zambians, who are unfamiliar with election procedures, should take some time and understand the electoral process before some mischievous individuals with selfish motives make them believe our system is prone to manipulation.

The Referendum

ZAMBIANS should start reading the contents of the Bill of Rights which is the reason for the National Referendum on August 16 so that they can make an informed choice instead of falling into the trap of debating how long the referendum question is. The Referendum question is indeed long but it cannot override the […]

Muzzling the Press?

MUCH as we are devastated by the events at The Post, one of our fearless erstwhile competitors, we respect the decision of the Zambia Revenue Authority to move against the newspaper and may we dare say Fred M’membe asked for it.   At the same time, we are appalled by the sentiments of the United […]

National Referendum

WITH only 53 days left before the holding of the general election together with the National Referendum on August 11, 2016, very little has been done to sensitise the electorate on the contents of the Bill of Rights.

ZRA and The Post

  THERE is no evidence to suggest that the Government wants to shut down the Post because it supports opposition parties as claimed by Hakainde Hichilema. The issue is quite clear: The Post owes the Government K53.8 million which it has tried to avoid paying for the last one year. At last the Supreme Court […]

Politics of lawlessness

  THE observation by the Oasis Forum that the current spate of political violence is symptomatic of a serious breakdown of law and order in the country is the harshest warning we have heard from a respected organization, pleading to all concerned  men and women of goodwill to do something about this cadre-inspired threat to […]
