By Jabbes Mvula - Today is Zambia's 42nd Independence Day. It just feels good to celebrate my country's polotical independence and remember the heroes who died during the fight for my freedom. Uhuru is a word from East Africa meaning 'Freedom'. Zambia is now 42 years old, not bad anyway.
For Zambians reading this page, its time to ask ourselves what our contribution has been or is going to be for our country. It should not be what the country can do for us but what we can do for our country. By the way, the most exciting news during this year's independence is that 'Oil deposits have been found in Zambia'.
HAPPY 42 YEARS ZAMBIA.
