"Is Zambia a province of Nigeria?" that's the answer I received when I told someone I was born in Zambia. In this show, I would like to introduce Zambia, a sovereign nation in the centre of Africa, and the Our-Zambia Vision. Hear about a real African liberal democratic nation, a country with so much potential, with a people peaceful and friendly.

Our featured guests Messrs Jacob Chisela and Harrison Musonda worked for Zambia Airways Corporation, which was liquidated and eventually shut down operations on December 4, 1994. On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary we look back at Zambia Airways' fate and the airline industry in Zambia. The airline was one of the largest employer in the nation with operations extending world wide. Our guests will share their working days at the airline and endeavor to reflect on whether the airline could have been saved or not. What went wrong? Who was responsible? Could the airline have continued if the decision was withheld or even an attempt to salvage the struggling airline? Where are most of the former employees and families who were affected by the closure today? Was this one of the demands from the IMF and World Bank to the new government if they were going to benefit from the much needed funding the economy desperately needed?Join us for a reflection and analysis on one of the events that affected Zambia's economy in a drastic way. Closure of Zambia Airways Corporation!!!!
