Food is on that list.

I wish to express my deep concern by how much our country is being polluted daily with falsehoods in media that have the potential to: endanger national peace, stability and unity; discourage domestic and foreign direct investment, and disrupt gains made on our devpt priorities.
Evidently, fake news not only affects Government, but also all citizens and those spreading them.
In the past, I restrained myself from responding to fabrications based on the hope that our reporters will rise above fake news, and focus their energies on substantive issues which are key to the attainment of national development priorities espoused in the 7NDP and Vision 2030.

I have been reading the various posts on the Constitution of Zambia (Amendment) Bill No. 10 of 2019 and would like to do a thread highlighting reservations with the Bill. @LindaKasonde @LauraMiti @nalucha_ziba @CofZambia @PamChisanga #Bill10 #Zambia
Important to note before going into the content of Bill 10 is what a Constitution is. It is in the case of Zambia a document that creates the State Organs and State institutions, defines their power and authority and describes their interaction with each other and the individual.
The Constitution binds all persons, State Organs and State Institutions. Critical to any constitutional democracy is the limits it places on all people, State Organs and State Institutions. It is the underlying basis of the country's legal system.

Community Service.

Look at Dr Sompwe Chanda Shine.

A thread.
I have known many people say, when you practice charity, donot let others know. Do it in private, it's not a show. Or that many people do it just for the millage. Well, for me, outreaches hold a lot of value. And sharing my experiences add to that value. 1/6
Meet Dr Sompwe, who has a passion in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. She is an Anesthesia specialist at UTH but in her free time apart from ZOCA, she promote STEM in communities. 2/6

1/ In Jan 2014, the Zambian govt granted permission to Mwembeshi Resources (a then subsidiary of then ASX-listed Zambezi Resources Ltd) to mine for copper in the pristine #LowerZambezi National Park. Local environmental groups promptly took the govt and Mwembeshi to court.
2/ At the time, I wrote an opinion piece arguing against the decision: lusakatimes.com/2014/01/30/gov…)
3/ It's been over 5 yrs and finally, the case is coming up for judgement next Monday, 14th October. This is a long-awaited and important judgement with significant implications. #Zambia #LowerZambezi

20 tonne tragedy. Dead elephant and pangolin parts discovered by Singapore inspectors. Just two days after the incident, authorities have gone public, scuppering investigative opportunities across the three countries implicated. channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore…
Consider that according to (admittedly crude) estimates, authorities are only detecting around 5-10% of all contraband. The trafficking networks can take this hit - they have done over decades of seizures.
Suggested question for journalists: “What investigative enquiries have been made, and intelligence considered, across DRC, Singapore and Vietnam, into the shipping industry, all other entities, comparison with similar seizures, to identify the perpetrators of this heinous crime?”

”How cities erode gender inequalities: a new theory & evidence from Cambodia”!

This is the most important paper I’ve ever written, the culmination of a decade’s work on social norms, & it’s just been accepted by Gender & Society!!

docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/2e7ace_0cd…
This is the 3rd (maybe 4th?) paper I’ve submitted to Gender & Society!!

All rejected!! 😫

But I kept on trying... 🙇‍♀️

Persevering!! 🐘

And I was especially keen for this paper to be accepted there, hopefully encouraging more studies in this field! 😊🙌🏞🏙
Here's the thing..

Studies of social change typically look at individual- or country-level characteristics

This omits the #places we live in.

In subnational comparisons, we see faster social change in cities.

Why?

And what does it tell us about the drivers of social change?

All things PROSTATE (a thread)
1. The prostate is a gland found below the bladder and around the urethra. Plays a role in male reproductive health and fertility

2. The prostate is about the size of a walnut (ok closer to home... size of one large masuku) and grows steadily with age. #menshealth #beginnersguidetoprostatecancer #urologyinzambia @bwantu
3. Prostatic growth is dependant on potent activated testosterone known as DHT... also responsible for male balding #beginnersguidetoprostatecancer #menshealth #prostate101 #urologyinzambia
