A Zambian Professor in the United States of America has been applauded for babysitting his student’s 10 month baby while during a lecture. Prof. Henry Musoma is a lecturer at one of the top US universities in Texas. When one of his students Ashton Robinson emailed giving notice of a situation with her childcare, Prof. Musoma had the most amazing feedback. The Zambian native called the student not to miss class but bring his 10-month-old baby named Emmett along. Ashton, a single mom, was astound. Not only did Prof. Musoma allow the single mom and baby to be in class, he also cared for the baby through the lecture as he doubled the babycare role with his teaching duties. Ashton said, “Definitely something I’ll never forget and can’t wait to someday tell Emmett that it’s because of people like this that mommy was able to graduate from the best university in the world.” Both Ashton and Prof. Musoma featured on a popular television show Ellen with viewers and followers of the programme praising the act as one of the most kind gesture a lecturer would offer to his student.

MISA Zambia has lashed out at police for using excessive force against a Muvi TV journalist Oswald Yambani. Traffic police beat up and arrested Yambani for capturing their activies today. READ THE FULL STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE-MISA CONDEMNS ARREST AND BEATING OF MUVI TV JOURNALIST 22nd September, 2017 MISA Zambia condemns the harassment of MUVI TV journalist Osward Yambani and has since appealed to Inspector General of Police to take keen interest in the matter and ensure that culprits are brought to book. We are saddened that Police Officers entrusted to protect citizens (journalists inclusive) have now resorted to beating, pepper spraying journalists, and detaining for merely carrying out their duties. This action by police do not only cause pain but instills fear in Journalists whose role is to inform the public. This is not the first time that Police have behaved in such an irresponsible manner towards journalists and they seem not to care. As MISA, we shall render Mr Yambani the necessary support until justice prevails and we are also informed that no mutual understanding has been reached between the Police in Chipata and MrYambani. We therefore appeal to the Police Commissioner to take interest in the matter and bring the police officers involved to book Mrs Elizabeth Mweene Chanda MISA BOARD VICE CHAIR PERSON The post MISA Zambia Condemns Beating Of Muvi TV Journalist By Police appeared first on Zambia Reports.
