Mr Bowman Lusambo is the National Youth Coordinator of the Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD), also popularly known as the MMD Die Hard Youth wing and outspoken on national or party politics. Mr Lusambo is known for his radical stance on issues affecting the youth and has often found himself at odds with the party's top ranking officials, particularly on his stance concerning the embattled party president Dr Nevers Mumba whom he has supported unreservedly. He recently castigated government for not safeguarding certain sectors of the job market for indigenous youth based on the report issued in parliament through a ministerial statement concerning work permits which were issued to foreign workers. Mr Lusambo is our guest on PERSPECTIVES to discuss the plight of the youth in Zambia
"When it comes to improving the quality of education, we know that teachers matter. The interaction that takes place within the classroom is arguably the biggest factor affecting whether and what children learn. We’ve seen around the world that a “good” teacher isn’t necessarily defined by his or her number of advanced degrees or years teaching; rather, good teachers are adequately prepared, supported, motivated, and compensated." Jenny Perlman Robinson
We ask, how can we contribute to education improvement in Zambia?
CURRENT EVENTS will look at events in Zambia and around the world.

Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) is seeking volunteers. Tonight we welcome Zora Ray, who is AIMI's Advocacy Coodinator for Drug/Alcohol Dependencies, Zora Ray, at 9pmEST. Please call to speak on air at (818) 572-2947. Everyone is invited! Zora is a retired psychiatric nurse who successfully battled drug addiction and depression herself, and she looks forward to helping other people. Email Zora at the address below:
As a AIMI advocate, Zora will try to find treatment centers and other services for persons who suffer from drug/alcohol dependencies. AIMI believes that persons with drug/alcohol addictions need TREATMENT, NOT PUNISHMENT. Therefore, Zora will attempt to have drug/alcohol-dependent defendants tried in drug courts rather than regular criminal courts, and she will attempt to influence decision makers to sentence addicts to treatment rather than to jails and prisons.
If you would like to work with AIMI as a volunteer, please contact MaryLovesJustice at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or call AIMI's director at (678)531.0262 or (571)335-1741. We need people of every race and socioeconomic status, because mental illness affects people from every group. No matter what your skills and educational level may be, AIMI has a volunteer job for you.
