Zambian Youtubers

A thread off Twitter
Ok so I have heard some people say “every Zambian is now having a YouTube channel” okay but what’s wrong with it? We are the same people that are wanting zambia to put on the map, so why are we complaining? — 🌈Lil Shawty✨ (@mwakapixel) March 11, 2019

IDAI Cyclone Warning for Zambia

Image
The tropical cyclone that is ravaging Mozambique is likely to extend to some parts of Zambia, the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit has warned. DMMU communications officer Racheal Chama said in a statement today that Cyclone Idai could affect Luapula, Northern, Central, Southern, Muchinga and parts of Eastern provinces. “The Southern African Development Community – Climate Services Centre has predicted that a tropical storm is forming over Mozambique, which will migrate inland and make landfall over eastern Mozambique,” Chama stated. “The tropical cyclone is likely to extend to Zambia and affect Luapula, Northern, Central, Southern, Muchinga and parts of Eastern provinces. Districts such as Lunga, Chilubi, Luwingu, Mporokoso, Kawambwa, parts of Mansa and Milenge are likely to receive rainfall more than 10mm from March 16.”
Chama explained that Cyclone Idai which is likely to make land fall in Zambia from 15th – 20th March 2019, will be characterised by high velocity winds, heavy rai…

Tropical cyclone with ‘rapid intensification’ to slam Africa, bringing 120 mph winds and downpours

When most people think about tropical cyclones, Africa usually doesn’t come to mind. Idai — a Category 2-equivalent with 100 mph winds — will make landfall in Mozambique later this week. The storm formed 40 miles off the shore of Mozambique early Saturday, drifting east-southeast over the Mozambique Channel during the day just above the tropical storm minimum threshold. Things didn’t stay that way for long, though. Between 2 a.m. Sunday and 2 a.m. Monday Mozambique time, Idai exploded from 45 mph to 105 mph, going from just above low-end tropical storm strength to a high Category 2 within 24 hours. It became a major hurricane-equivalent (Category 3) just six hours later. Storms in the Indian Ocean are called “cyclones.”
That fits the bill for “rapid intensification,” strengthening at a greater rate than Harvey, Irma, Florence or Michael did before impacting the United States. After peaking at 120 mph, Idai’s winds stand at 105 mph, but it could restrengthen. The worst of the storm hasn’t…

How Zambia Is Defying The Odds In The Face Of Economic Pressure - A Q&A With Christopher Mvunga

Image
African economies are primed to be ranked among the fastest growing in the world in 2019. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), projections for the region’s economic growth next year has been bumped up to 3.5% - 4% from earlier projections of 3% growth. If you set aside Angola, Nigeria, and South Africa, the region’s projected growth rate jumps to 5.7%.
Among those nations primed for growth Zambia is Zambia, which thanks to the steady rebound of commodity prices, an improvement in the global economy and improved capital market access, enjoyed 5% growth in the third quarter of 2018, up to a half-point from a year earlier. Still, as many analysts express concern over the country’s management of debt, a fiscal consolidation programme has boosted confidence, resulting in improving medium and long-term forecasts for the country’s potential growth. But Zambia is not entirely out of the woods yet. Debt remains high, there's an ongoing tax row with the mining industry, and the…
