60% of ZNBC now owned by China.

Image
A Zambian High Court has ruled in favour of satellite pay television company MultiChoice Zambia over the joint venture between the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) and Chinese digital television service provider TopStar Communications.
The joint venture, entered into by the two companies earlier this year, means TopStar owns 60% shares in ZNBC and empowers the company to collect all ZNBC advertising and tower rental revenue for the next 25 years.
TopStar owns 60% shares in ZNBC and empowers the company to collect all ZNBC advertising and tower rental revenue for the next 25 years. The revenue collected will go towards the servicing of a US$273 million loan secured by the Zambian government from the Export-Import Bank of China for investment in the digital broadcasting networking and the building of provincial studios.
The alliance also paves the way for the rollout of TopStar-branded set top boxes for digital television and has reportedly resulted in the prevention of over …

Pezani Discount was started while we were in school. Life of a student is nice (sometimes). You get paid for schooling. Before we went for regular food shopping because we obviously did not want to starve, we would survey all the shops for what we needed.
Some of you might say just go to Shoprite, it's cheap.  That's the lie we all grew up with. Yes, we said it, Shoprite isn't all cheap. Buy everything from Shoprite as a student you will regret because there is basically no change (leftover cash).

Our survey would cover the town and the nearest shopping malls. Find promotions and the freshest goodies. After that, we would go from shop to shop buying part of our shopping list until the whole lis…

Zambian president fires finance minister

Zambia’s president has fired Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe and appointed central bank deputy governor Bwalya Ng’andu to replace her, the president’s office said. 
The statement, issued on Sunday night, gave no reasons for President Edgar Lungu’s decision and there were no immediate comments from Mwanakatwe, who only took up the post last year, or from Ng’andu.
Ng’andu will take over the management of an economy the International Monetary Fund has repeatedly warned is struggling with high debts and shrinking foreign exchange reserves.
External debt rose to $10.05 billion at the end of 2018, compared with $8.74 billion a year earlier. Zambia is trying to shrink a fiscal deficit that amounted to 7.5% of gross domestic product last year.
The government also faces tensions with miners who say taxes it has imposed will stymie investment and hit output in Africa’s second-largest copper producer.
Ng’andu has previously served as managing director of the Development Bank of Zambia, managing …

Zambian YouTuber Shares how she worked as a cleaner in the UK despite having a degree

Image
In the video, the Viral Content creator Lily Mutamz talks about how indirect discrimination exists in the UK when it comes to employment opportunities. Despite gaining experience through her practice placement during her degree studies at the University of Winchester, she has been told several times that she does not have work experience. The YouTuber says in the video that despite this barrier she still cleaned in order to invest in her farm business in Solwezi. The YouTuber further advises Africans to invest back home with whatever little money they make from menial jobs. The YouTuber managed to buy herself 100 Hectares of farmland in Solwezi where she spent 6 weeks last year clearing the land with the help of Solwezi Prisoners. Lily Mutamz who is a qualified social worker states that Solwezi is the place she feels is home and wishes to use her qualifications to work with vulnerable groups of people in Zambia. Lily Mutamz also plans to set up a clinic and a school for the villagers w…

Zambia takes centre stage in Namwali Serpell's sprawling ‘The Old Drift’

Image
When Namwali Serpell and her fellow English student geeks at Yale were immersed in “all these classic multigenerational, post-colonial, post-imperial novels,” they shared a running joke about the novel Persell had already started to write.
‘It’s the Great Zambian Novel you never knew you were waiting for!” she recalls with a laugh.
Turns out they were wrong. Almost 20 years later, Serpell’s “The Old Drift” (Hogarth, $28, 576 pages) is the great Zambian novel the literary world really has been waiting for. The book that made many of spring’s “most-anticipated” lists has received glowing reviews and numerous comparisons to Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ s “100 Years of Solitude.”

 BUY


Serpell hasn’t really been writing the sprawling epic for decades. In the meantime, she went to Harvard for grad school, published a book of literary criticism, started several other novels and completed one that’s parked in a drawer. She also joined the UC Berkeley faculty in 2008 and now teaches, among other classe…
