Mundia Mukubesa, better known as Petersen has been running a smart campaign for the mayoral seat in Lusaka. It had seemed like a joke when Petersen showed up at the Lusaka Civic Centre to file his nomination as a candidate. It had almost seemed like one of those wishy-washy undertakings that were just an egoistic fulfilment of infant dreams. But Zagaman or is it Zagaze has clicked with some mass of prospective voters. One has got to admire the sincerity of Petersen in evaluating his chances in the mayoral race. Petersen has conducted an honest appraisal of his chances which is accurately reflected in his campaign song “Tikosesa†which translates in we would make it difficult. Petersen knows very well how hard it would be for him to win the Lusaka mayoral seat given his credentials that may beyond the enthusiasm of youth just has him dismissed as an entertainer. He has not been so outright about winning but making a mark on this campaign. The better enlightened could classify his pursuit in the league of the “strike a blow and dieâ€. Strike a blow and die in script of Malawian independence hero William Chilembwe. Enough about history lessons! Petersen is not only coming up against a campaign that is heavily viewed as a two horse race between the Patriotic Front and the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND). He is standing on the nondescript People’s Alliance for Change (PAC) that is rather seeming like just fulfilling an electoral obligation to field a candidate. But Petersen who will appear on the ballot as Mundia Mukubesa has not let the negative vibe weigh him down and has gone about his campaign business alongside his youthful president Andyford Mayele Banda. It is very clear that Petersen has emerged as the neutrals’ choice. Petersen could very easily cause an upset on July 26 if his vibe continues resonating with the Lusaka voters. Of course winning may be a tad too far but Zagaze may have come of age to finally practice what he has preached over the years. He has made the right political and societal commentaries in his music over the years. His voice has resonated with the downtrodden of society making him a rare moral voice in music circles. His trademark songs like Anyandule, Bufi (collaboration with Pilato) and now Spartacus are some of the social commentaries that set him apart from the crowd. He may not win the mayoral race but Zagaman deserves some respect. He is a man simply living his dream. It may not come to fruition this time given the dominance the ruling Patriotic Front enjoys in Lusaka but surely Zagaman may just be happy to live his word.   The post OPINION: Mukubesa Could the Neutrals Choice in Mayoral Race appeared first on Zambia Reports.

A team of businessmen in Kitwe led by Power Tools and Bus Services proprietor Mbachi Nkwazi has successfully funded the construction of 8 dormitories at Kamfinsa Correctional Facility to accommodate about 600 inmates. Late last year after visiting Kamfinsa Correctional facility, Kitwe District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu engaged businessmen in the district to help realise the change from prisons to correctional facility at Kamfinsa. The facility has for a long time been faced with congestion because of the initial holding capacity that cannot sustain the current number of inmates going beyond 2,300. As a way of completing government efforts to make correctional facilities, the business community in Kitwe district responded positively through corporate social responsibility to fund the construction of the 8 dormitories and about two boreholes. Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has commissioned the dormitories during the International Day of Prayer and Action for Inmates in Zambia. Kampyongo further announced that government has procured 18 motor vehicles for the correctional facility to address transport challenges. The Shiwang’andu Parliamentarian has since commended the gesture exhibited by the business community in Kitwe on the construction of the 8 dormitories to supplement government efforts in improving infrastructure in correction facilities.
