SORT BY Relevancy
In his 2009 proposal to the Ministry of Education and Finance he suggested that Zambia implement a two-tier public education system, turning a few schools into fee paying schools, "so that we can attract the Zambian middle class who are now paying $2000 - $5000 a year sending [their] kids to private schools." He explained that, "The thinking behind it, was to decongest existing schools and allowing government to focus on poor neighborhoods while the rich are allowed to fend for themselves. In the name of the poor everything is being run down, people with money are sending kids and patients to private schools and hospitals owned by foreigners and overseas and in both cases we are seeing huge financial leakages in our economy." Musaba talks to us about his proposal and the response he got from GRZ.
Zambia Diaspora Connect Chairman Mr. Musaba Chailunga will be joining us from Toronto in Canada to discuss his role in the organisation and his recent visit to Zambia. He will also share with the listeners the main objectives of Zambia Diaspora Connect and why almost each and every Zambian should consider being part of ZDC. He strongly believes that as things stand ZDC is one of the very few Zambian organisations which is not only non political but with a lot of initiatives that can help move Zambians forward in economic terms. He believes it is his role to motivate Zambians since he thinks there is a tremendous gap between what Zambians know and what they should know. Listen to why he thinks Zambia is better now, and the goal to make ZDC a billion dollar organisation within 5 years.
Mr. Chailunga's academic background is business and Information Technology, he works for a leading telecommunications company as Senior Programmer Analyst in Toronto and is the Founder/President of Lwangwa Investments Corporation in Canada a company focusing on direct private investment in the SADC.

Musaba is also President of Zambia Diaspora Connect, an organization that has advocated for the involvement of the Zambian diaspora in Zambia’s development. He joins us to discuss the his recently published book; Object Oriented Development in Africa.

Since time immemorial there has been this antagonistic view that there is the RICH and the POOR sitting at poles. But is it really true that we have this static group of people that never changes, that the rich will forever be rich.
Africa and Africans in general have found themselves at the lower scale of power and wealth, and for this most Africans and indeed other poor people consider themselves victims of this social arrangement that favours the rich and victimises the poor.
Today the host try to debunk the myth that there are victims and victmisers at the global level that cannot be reversersed. And points out that to a certain extent what matters most is the quality of life and not wealth, but those who want to ensure they are well looked after by the "system" there are simple steps they can take and these can lead to joining the millionaire club.
As many changes takes place, the more the things remain the same." As the reality of the new PF government takes hold, people are now wondering wether the phenomena "Donchi Kubeba" has turned into "Donchi Kudabwa" or we just turn into "Donchi Kulanda".. The messianic expectations of the elections are being eroded with mind boggling appointments and policies which were envisaged by the masses as things of the past. The proclamations such as "allergic to corruption" being betrayed by certain nominations. Is the jury to early to judge or the masquerade has been rumbled? Please join Bernard Kapalu Mweseka on BKM Show as he discusses with the author of the magnum opus STRUGGLES OF MY PEOPLE, Mr Charles Mwewa of Toronto, Canada. Also joining us are the world renown author, social scientist, lecturer and novelist Prof Mwizenge Tembo of Bridgewater College, Virginia, USA and world renowned social, educational and economic technocrat, Musaba Chailunga of Toronto, Canada. We will also discuss Zambia's cultural "colonisation" and cultural Independence..
Global 2012 - looks at political and economic assessments of what's going to happen in the World and its impact on Zambia. The last segment will concentrate on Zambia - what will happen in Zambia in 2012. Join us an indepth analysis of events that will impact your life and how you can benefit from them.
Zambia's turn of events 60 days and counting, with topics including the past, present and future prospects of our nation. Zambia can definitely get better but are we on the right path?
Some think for the most part Zambia has been on the right track for the last 20 years. The PF government may have changed gears but appear to be travelling on the same rails set by their predecessors. Windfall tax is all but dead. Both Vision 2030 and the development plans appear to be maintained thanks to a maturing civil service. Is it official that Zambia has now moved to the center right?
Come offer your opinions on Zambia’s political and economic future, is the MMD dead and buried. It is too early to rank H.E Michael Sata but how do you rank the last four Presidents of Zambia.
If you like a good intellectual exchange and a place where ideologies collide not personalities this is your show. If it is Saturday it is Diaspora Voice. Join Musaba Chailunga as moderator sitting in for James Mwape and Co.
Economic and Business Development will offer most people freedom and independence. Just like when Children become free and independent from the "control" of their parents when they get Jobs and earn their own living the same applies to Nations.
We all know this, the question is "How" do we achieve the same for ourselves, our families and our countries.
It is business free for all Sunday. Sitting in for James Mwape and Co. is Musaba Chailunga from Toronto, Ontario in Canada
Courtesy of Zambia Diaspora Connect email forum, subscribers have spent the last 2 weeks trying to “explain the explanation” behind Zambia’s woes in politics and economics, others seem to have found the cause, it is called “Laziness” some disagree. This prompted the following excerpts….
Patson asks "Are Zambian professionals choosing easier, biased, uncompetitive options when they execute duties and decisions on behalf of the country?"
Ntheye attributes shortcoming to matters related to "Post-Independence readiness to exploit our resources, Economic ideology and Political freedoms".
Dr. Mbewe questions "To what do you attribute our underdevelopment, if not "laziness" on our part?"
In almost a direct response to Dr. Mbewe; Mwata Chisha raises this point "The measure of our success/greatness should not be in comparison with what others have done, rather, it should be in comparison with how well we have performed given our circumstances."
Feel free to position yourself and sell your arguments in the debate that appears to have no middle ground. This is part II from last week on the same subject.
