Digital Freedom Fighters

When we think of the term freedom fighter in Zambian history a name that comes to mind is the founding father of Zambia Dr. Kenneth Kaunda who recently passed away at 97 years old. Say what you will about him but his approach to activism, pan africanism, mediation work of uniting countries in Southern Africa,…

Pandemic Times: Yestoday

Life changed last year without our permission, no one asked it to happen that way it just did, everything as we know it flipped upside down unexpectedly. Here we are a year on and to speak close to each other, to socialise, hug or shake hands is to put a life at risk. To go…

My Daily Intake of Immune Boosters

Almost a year on and Covid is still around and if you are not infected you are affected in some way. We have received word and read that the African Union has secured vaccines of which Zambia has been allocated 8.7 million doses. In the meantime, I continue to take vitamins and supplements with a…

Social Distancing at a Flower Farm

The biggest problem is that it is always swept under the carpet and there seems to be a lack of understanding with a quick dismissal…
