Call to duty

  ZAMBIA today stands on the precipice of national calamity unless men and women of valour, patriotism and clout from all sections of Zambian society come forward to help President-elect Edgar Lungu strategize on how to stop the nonsense threatening the unity and bonding of our motherland. We call it nonsense because it is uncalled […]

Petition dilemma

  IN every contest, there has to be a winner and a loser. It follows suit, therefore, that even in an electoral contest there has to be one winner and never two. Otherwise, this would be going against the orderly management of competitions. The case in point is the tightly contested just ended Thursday’s general […]

Be calm

IT IS quite disheartening to note that pockets of politically orchestrated violence have continued way after the official campaign period is over.

  PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu yesterday pressed the button to switch on the Maamba coal-fired power plant that pushed 150 megawatts of high-velocity electricity into the national grid, making Zambia almost power secure after a one-and-a-half-year deficit.

Failed Leadership

THE true character of statesmanship is shown in times of intense pressure and the remaining few days before the poll day provides that litmus test.

United in diversity

ZAMBIA will stand still next Thursday when more than six million of its citizens in every city, town, ‘‘boma’’, township, compound, village and isolated settlement will troop to polling stations nearest to them to cast their vote. To many people the polling day is a carnival, a day of light banter, jokes and apprehension, wondering  […]

Diplomatic itch

THE simmering diplomatic spat between Zambia and Zimbabwe over the fishing rights on Lake Kariba can easily spiral into an embarrassing border incident and row if not given the international diplomatic importance it deserves. So far at least 45 Zambians and Zimbabweans have been arrested, are on trial or have been sentenced to long jail […]

Crying wolf again

THE ceremonial desperation antics and lawlessness exhibited by the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) during election time never ceases to amaze us. It is just about one and half years ago when UPND cadres impounded Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) trucks in Kafue en route to Lusaka on suspicion that they were laden […]
