Social commentator Laura Miti has added her voice to the cholera containment situation measures or the lack of them employed by government. Miti has taken issue with weeklong cholera prayer and fasting sessions called for the Minister of Religion. The acid-tongued Miti says the prayers may amount to mocking God. Below is her full posting: We have a cholera response that has not tackled even one structural problem. Nothing said about toilets in informal settlements, markets & the CBD, nothing about a functional garbage collection system or the debilitating water shortages all over Lusaka. Stunning for me is the failure to address the immediate humanitarian needs of vendors. Not a single minister has mentioned the hunger that must be ravaging the homes of people who are not selling or shown that anyone in government is concerned about the simple – what are they eating question. But we must fast & pray. I really would like to know what the Minister of Religion wants us to say to God. Please come down and tell us how we will ensure that, from now on, all waste is collected timely. And yes, do bring down angels to construct a few toilets. Calm the pangs of our hungry, so that they do riot. You, dear God, should do all that while we move your hand by fasting prayer. The post Cholera Prayers Irk Laura appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda says his team will not go to sleep after having beaten Uganda 3-1 in their opening Group B match at the African Nations Championship (CHAN). And Uganda coach Sebastian Desabre said it was not easy for him to chalk up a victory after having taken over the Cranes job in the last 10 days. During a post-match press conference, Nyirenda said the 3-1 win over Uganda was behind and would now focus on the next two matches. “Winning today is just the first game, we cannot go to sleep and think we have already qualified. We have three points apiece with Namibia and the race is still open,†said Nyirenda. “This is a marathon, which means we all have two games to go, therefore we can only think about being qualified after playing the third game.†He added: “We are not going to relax, I believe the way Uganda is playing, and we should not be surprised to find them qualifying because we have seen the way they are playing. Any other team can qualify.†The coach paid tribute to his players for having withstood the bombardment from the Cranes in the first half. “The first half was all for Uganda, they controlled the game. They played very well, well organized and they kept the shape. We were nowhere to be seen,†he said. “My team did not believe in themselves in the first 20 minutes. Uganda could have scored in the first 10 minutes. We showed some character we did not concede in the first 10 minutes,†he said. Nyirenda also paid glowing tribute to Kambole who made his competitive debut in Chipolopolo colours. “There is nothing that gives a coach a lot of pleasure than when you believe in a player and you give him a chance and he responds in such a way. I think this is a big plus even to the other players,†said Wada of Kambole. “This is his debut, he scored us a beauty of a goal in a friendly against Orlando Pirates last week. The boy is building his confidence more and more. All we need as coaches is to believe in what we see. The young man has a lot to show to this world.†Kambole was named Man of the Match after having scored a goal and provided an assist for the second goal to crown a dream debut. Zambia took command of Group B with a 3-1 win that saw goals from Kambole, Augustine Mulenga and Fackson Kapumbu cancel out Derrick Nsibambi’s goal for Uganda. Zambia will next face Ivory Coast on Thursday in the second group match before concluding their pool matches next Monday. In the other Group B match Namibia stunned Ivory Coast whom they beat 1-0.
