    Dr Ngosa Simbyakula- Minister of Justice

    in Politics

    Dr Ngosa Simbyakula MP is the Justice Minister in the Patriotic Front government and he was the first cabinet minister announced by President Edgar Lungu in his historic inaugural speech which was held at the Heroes Stadium away from the traditional venue at the steps of the Supreme Court. President Lungu categorically stated that; "I want to hand you a new constitution. We will definitely deliver a people-driven constitution as per the road map we released recently." He entrusted Dr Simbyakula with the task of ensuring the government enacts a people driven constitution to the people of Zambia. The constitution making process has been a contentious issue in Zambian politics prior to the multi- party era and the nation has witnessed commission after commission as presidents took office. The civil society and church mother bodies have made their presence known in the process. Dr Simbyakula joins us to discuss the PF government's road map to the constitution making process. Can this be achieved before the 2016 General elections?

    Zambian music and Zambian musicians

    in Music


    “The oppressed use music to express themselves”, this why the music industry of the previously oppressed societies—for example, Black Americans and South African—is a success. On the other hand, music is a multi-billion industry. Now that Zambian music is developing to world-class with Zambians singing internationally and winning medals in global competition, do we see this industry developing into a business that can address household poverty and contribute significantly to economic development. Kambidima speaks to Chisenga Gander Katongo (C.R.I.$.I.$ Mr Swagger) and Fortune Nyondo, to discuss Zambian music and Zambian musicians. What is the secret of their success? What is their focus? What keeps them going? What help do they need and from whom? Born and raised in Zambia, Fortune Nyondo (http://www.fortunesmusic.com/) is a Christian singer, songwriter, composer and arranger. He is also founder of a non-profit organization called Fortune Pilgrim (http://www.fortunepilgrim.org/) that seeks to change the lives of AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis victims in Zambia, and other countries around the world. On his website, Fortune testifies to the awsome healing power of Jesus Christ through his music, and brings it to reality through Fortune Pilgrim. Similarly, born and raised in Lusaka, Chisenga Katongo (http://www.reverbnation.com/hiphopcrisis?eid=3578800_19597450#!/page_object/page_object_bio/artist_64688) a Hip-Hop fan since age 10 is now a world class Hip-Hop artist. He was nominated for the BEFFTA (Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television Arts Awards) in the BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT category. He won this tightly contested category—other competitors in this category were Sade (UK), Fally Ipupa (DRC Congo), 2 Face (Nigeria), Ali Kiba (Tanzania) and M.I. (Nigeria).

    Marsha Winsryg and the African Artists' Community Development Project (AACDP)

    in Lifestyle

    Marsha Winsryg may have gone to Africa to site see and look at local culture but when that culture reached out to her as an artist and teacher, something happened. She was asked by local artisans to take their wares back to the USA and sell them, which she did. However, as she really looked around she saw a need , a humanitarian need especially among children, that was created by the cultural devastation that was a looming as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis. In Zambia, one out of three people are HIV positive and everyone has lost family members. Most adults are caring for orphans as well as their own children in an economy that barely sustains a subsistence lifestyle.


    As a response to her question, "What can  I DO?" , Marsha founded The African Artisans Community Development Project—AACDP—provides economic opportunity for Zambian artisans while generating cash support for local Zambian NGOs treating children who have been orphaned or disabled as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis.

    Their method is simple and cost-effective. Thet buy Zambian crafts from local artisans at full market rate for Africa;  sell the crafts back n the United States at American rates; and then send the profits back to Zambian schools and clinics providing services to children.
