Mr. Ernest C. Mwansa is the spokesperson of The Technical Committee on Drafting the Zambian Constitution which was constituted on 16th November, 2011, by the President using his executive powers vested in him by the current Republican Constitution.. The Technical Committee has recognized that the constitution-making process is a very important national issue and should, therefore, involve the participation of all Zambians.
Mr Mwansa joins us to discuss wide ranging issues on the process or route of coming up with an acceptable or people-driven Constitution. He will update us on the process and progress, address the concerns of the role and influence of the Executive in the process, reasons the process has taken longer than initially projected, what role if any at the current stage can the Diaspora play, will the final draft be subjected to a national referendum? It is now over 20 years since Zambia started making attempts, at developing a democratic Constitution is this the last we are undergoing through this process?

This week, Elvira will speak with Avoka Ke-on Cephas who is currently a 4 year medical student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana and former Vice President of the Federation of Ghana Medical Students Association (FGMSA). They will talk about his studies, his NGO work, and his plans for the future while addressing the challenges and questions many new professionals face.
Mr. Cephas has participated in various research and health outreach in a number of rural communities in Ghana. He is passionate about healthcare, especially access to healthcare by people in rural areas. He has done community work in his village, Garu, which is located in the north-east area of Ghana. He is currently working with an NGO (Plight of the Child International) to organize a health outreach program within communities in Ghana.
Mr. Cephas also works with the Standing Committee on Public Health of the International Federation of Medical Students Associations to develop an exchange program that allows medical students to travel to other countries and participate in projects within those countries.
He believes access to healthcare is a basic human right, and all stakeholders involved should work towards ensuring that no one is denied this right. Furthermore, everyone can make a change in our communities, and in our own small way, contribute to the realization of the goal of healthcare for all.
Chapter 1: President addresses drones and Guantanamo
The president gave an hour speech today at National Defense University in which he signaled changes in the U.S. drone program and a renewed committment to close the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo.

Then we'll hear from CodePink's Medea Benjamin who was also in attendance and managed to interrupt the president with her calls to close Guantanamo immediately. Then we'll hear from Gabor Rona of Human Rights First about how much we can expect from the administration going forward.
Chapter 2: Congress battles over just how far to expand visas for highly skilled immigrant workers.
As part of an immigration reform proposal, the U.S. Senate Judiciary committee called for an increase in H-1B visas, visas given to immigrants with high-tech skills, such as those in the so-called STEM fields. The issue is largely bi-partisan, with the Democratic led committee approving this increase… and, in fact, Republicans in the House of Representatives have called the increase insufficient and countered with the SKILLS Visa Act, expanding the program by another 30,000 visas. However, not everyone is happy Congress is likely to pass some kind of increase in the near future. My first guest on the issue says the call for more skilled immigrants is merely pre-text for companies to pay less for high-value labor. Norman Matloff is a Professor at UCLA where he teaches Computer Science.
