hat an exciting journey it has been putting together the 2nd issue of our publication. Issue one was a great introduction and myself and the rest of the team are so humbled on the reception it received. I thank God for our readers and for the lovely team The Global Zambian Magazine has. This issue has touched on a number of sensitive issues that people are facing today, in particular the children and youth. With a culture that is not accustomed to young people speaking up and out about what they are faced with on a regular basis, at The Global Zambian Magazine we want to be that voice for the voiceless. We would like more people to be advocates on behalf of the youth without their words getting lost in translation. The young people are the future of our nations whether we like it or not, like death and taxes, this too is inevitable; so let us take heed and learn to listen to what they have to say. I was reading from the book of Jeremiah and this gave me a better insight to how the children feel, when they are unable to express their views. “Ah, Sovereign Lord,” I Said, “I do not know how to speak; I am only a child.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with

Ethel Gondwe A personal approach you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord. Jeremiah Ch1 v 6-8 Going by those words, it is obvious that it is our duty to reassure the youth and children that they are in safe hands when they do decide to come forward with an issue they would like to address. Bullying, is rife globally, with an estimated 160,000 children missing school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students, and 282,000 students physically attacked in secondary school each month in the United States alone. Bullying needs to be faced head on and eradicated from our schools and homes. Coming away from the less serious topics, the cover girl for this month’s issue actress Muzingo Banda spent some time with reptiles at Kalimba far, we take a ride with Action Auto Zambia, and make our monthly recommendations on holiday destinations, must go to chill out spots, fashion trends, and we challenge your mind with some puzzles and crosswords.

As a result private school libraries are richly stocked with a wide variety of reading material and an easy reference section on how to find books whereas most government schools are lacking in reading material; there is no infrastructure and most books are obsolete. The number of libraries is severely limited and there is an uneven distribution, as most of them appear to be located in urban areas.

EDUCATION | ZAMBIAN EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES

Zambian Educational Facilities There is a general lack of appreciation for the value of information, due to the teacher centred curriculum that has existed in Zambia from earlier times, where pupils regard the teacher as the only source of information and learning is by rote. A method that has proven no longer effective, as the world has evolved and so has the level of information required to be absorbed by students on a regular basis. This can pose rather strenuous on faculty members if adequate material is not available at the schools. Many organizations have partnered with the Ministry of Education to assist in developing and improving reading programmes in schools. The following organisations are a few of the organisations that have set up initiatives in aid of increasing the interest in reading and reading facilities: • World vision Zambia promotes literacy in schools • Read to succeed is a USAID-funded project that aims to improve student performance specifically on early grade reading. Read to succeed works with students, teachers and communities throughout six provinces in Zambia. • Room to Read Zambia focuses on improving access to resources through their school library program; they have also developed Reading and Writing Instruction Programs, and have established 315 libraries.

books has been replaced with instant messaging and smart phones. The more developed countries have implemented alternatives to paper books in the form of kindles and other electronic versions of books; and for people in 3rd world countries like Zambia who can afford them, devices such as notepads and tablets are available to them. However this still leaves a majority of the population at a disadvantage as many cannot afford such expensive gadgets. So what can be done to ensure that reading materials are readily available to more communities in the rural areas of Zambia and to the less privileged? The previously mentioned organisations are a great inspiration and Zambians and friends of Zambia around the world are urged to support by donating books and volunteering at these organisations. As Zambia moves forward to achieve the millennium goal on education, individuals can donate books to churches, schools and orphanages and give children and adult learners the gift of literacy and reading.

As with the previous generation Isuzu KB the new KB range is powered by a selection of latest high tech and the upgraded generation diesel and petrol engines. Three engines have been built for the new Isuzu KB. And all three are designed around the need for reduced service costs and overall cost of operation. Thus, Isuzu vehicles maintaining a prominent market share in numerous important global markets; Zambia inclusive, especially now that fuel prices are constantly increasing.

Are you making early savings and investments? Written By Crystal Musonda

A little at a time goes a long way

Unfortunately personal financial management is a topic that is foreign to most young adults in Zambian society; this can be attributed to the fact that it has not become a required subject in high school or college, and many possess little or no knowledge on the topic. Personal finance can be easy, even if you are just starting out; all you need to do is a little research to know how it works. The following are concepts I wish I had known before heading to college.

How Can I Make Savings? Many people experience financial hard times when they are older due to the lack of knowledge on savings and investments. One would wonder how savings can be made possible in an economy with stagnant wages, a tough job market, and high cost of living. The following tips can make for a first step into successful saving.

Pay yourself first On the road to financial success, the first step should be making a budget and planning your spending. On your budget, the first person you should spend money on should be yourself. This can be achieved by putting aside a small percentage of your earnings into a savings account for your own future. Set goals that you wish to achieve The best way to achieve financial success is to plan for it. Maybe you would like to: • Buy a car when you graduate from college, university or start your first job.

12

THE GLOBAL ZAMBIAN

• Set aside funds for special occasions or emergencies. • Buy a house someday. • Live comfortably in retirement. Whatever your goal, planning your budget will provide you with a realistic calculation on your finances.

Stop Buying on Impulse Impulse shopping can be very tempting while out and about. The problem with this is that you end up blowing money on items you don’t really need, and sometimes on things you don’t even want. Before making a purchase, make sure it is a necessity, or better yet make a shopping list and stick to it.

Find Bargains When shopping, look for items that are on sale like the 50% off sales, or two-for-one bargains, buy used books instead of brand new ones, and order the special instead of something off the menu at restaurants, take-aways or cafes. If you look for bargains every time you go shopping, you will be saving a substantial

June/July 2013

amount of your income.

Give up Bad Habits Everyone has at least one bad spending habit; maybe you smoke, drink too often, or are into buying expensive designer branded clothing. Whatever your habit, you need to evaluate it and find a way to indulge less on it. You will surprise yourself on the amount of savings you can make just by cutting down your spending habits even by a quarter.

Avoid hanging out with big spenders Some friends have parents with deep pockets, others have good paying jobs, and both can play a big part when it comes to financial trouble. This is not to say that you should not be around your higher earning friends, but

rather avoid giving in to the pressures of people pleasing outside of your own means. Good friends will understand your limited budget and are likely to take in, and even adapt to your suggestions of cheaper spending options. Practice selfcontrol if you are found to mainly have higher income friends, so you do not spend more than you can afford.

Save early and often It is always better to save a little bit on a regular basis, rather than to postpone until you have a larger sum of money or income. Like hoping that a longer, more intense workout later on will get you back into shape, when regular and shorter workouts have a better outcome and better long term effects. This may prove difficult when loans


LIFESTYLE | SAVINGS AND INVESTMENTS

and bills are higher than your salary, however the little you can manage to save, is just as valuable. A very small amount saved in your 20s can grow to a significant sum by your 60s; if it is kept in the market. It is always better to save a minimal amount than not to save anything at all.

Live within your means Most young adults get into the hype of buying expensive furniture and cars, using monthly credit facilities on their first jobs. What you need to know is, no one really ever pays attention to the brand of furniture you have, and the key here is taste, beautiful furniture will always stand out regardless of price; the same applies with cars. Learn to pay attention to your spending’s, to ensure your income rises faster than your lifestyle, and let the big savings that come

over the years get you smoothly to the finish line. If you for instance make KR500 and spend KR450 saving KR50 every month; in a decade you would have saved KR6, 000. That saving; even before the ten years will allow you to be able to purchase those items that you normally would not be in a position to afford had you tried to purchase them within your monthly budget. This way your lifestyle is no so limited because of finances, and you’re on the right track to saving for a comfortable retirement. Once the above principles have been successfully applied and you are making ample savings, then you should consider placing some of those savings into investments.

Why should I invest whilst I am still young? The greatest advantage that young people have compared to more established older citizens is time. Making investments at an early age provides enough time for the investments to grow and also allows you to make risky and diversified investment decisions. Once you make an investment that doesn’t give a good return you have enough time to recover financially and make more informed decisions.

Some examples of investments include: Buying shares on the stock market: The first step is to contact one of the Lusaka Stock Exchange (LuSE) member stock brokers and open an account which is similar to opening a bank account. Shares can be bought for as little as ZMK1 on the stock exchange so you do not have to be a millionaire to begin. Invest in your education: investing in your education will make you a more competitive candidate for the better paying jobs that are available in the tough Zambian job market. Landing that dream job will allow you to make more savings and get you closer to achieving your financial goals.

Start a personal business venture: A society with a tough job market has so many incentives in place to encourage entrepreneurial initiatives. Having enough savings in place can provide capital to realise the business idea you have always been passionate about and eventually set you up financially for life. Remember, you don’t need any fancy degrees or special background to become an expert at managing your finances. Great discipline and being savvy are attitudes you need to adapt on the road to financial security. If you use these financial rules for your life, you can be as personally prosperous as the guy with the hard-won MBA.

HONOURING STEPHEN KAPPATA (1936-2007)

It goes without saying that Stephen Kappata was a talent like no other. Still remaining one of Zambia’s greatest painters, The Global Zambian Magazine consider him a hero for the art industry. His short narrative texts on all his work made him a great story teller without the need of a large vocabulary. His work of art sent trumpets around the globe, so much that H Macmillan have an entire book on the life and art of the Zambian Legend. He mostly painted using oil on canvas or calico, and his smooth definition of his objects showing great attention to detail brought the paintings to life, with a vibrance that sent a message words could simply not describe. Comical in part; his main themes straddled along Zambia’s history and traditional culture, life under colonial occupation and social satires of contemporary life. His work has been exhibited in Europe, and United States with beginnings at prestigious exhibitions in places like the Mpapa Gallery in Lusaka. An inspiration for the many aspiring artists worldwide, and a phenomenal talent that is dearly missed.

A A

C

A. Mugg & Bean The popular Mugg & Bean restaurant situated at Manda Hill and Levy Malls, is the perfect getaway if you’re looking for generous portions, giant muffins and bottomless coffee. The cosy cafe that is set in a mood that gives you an automatic relaxing feel, is the perfect hideout for some alone time or simply for that lovely catch up with friends as you sample the mouth watering taste of the well prepared and presented cuisine. If the story of the founders Ben Filmalter and his wife Judi is anything to go by, it is no wonder why it is not easy to leave once you have sipped that pipping blend of coffee.

D C. Copper Creek Spur Families should never be left out when it comes to finding the perfect chill out spot. And Copper Creek Spur on the upper level of Manda Hill Mall Lusaka, is that ideal place. Offering a menu to suit the whole family, from Mexican cuisine, succulent burgers and ribs, healthy salad bar and much more. For the kids, parents do not have to worry as there is a play room with video games. Whilst the kids play,there is a secluded area for those couples that would like to wind down with a cup of hot cocoa to end their meal. If you’re on a budget, that is not a problem either, simply look out for the Copper Creek specials every week and take advantage of them.


D. Twaala Restaurant Chef Lillian Elidah brings you a personal touch of home cooked yet sophisticated cuisine at Twaala. Twaala restaurant captures the essence and undeniable culture and cuisine of the African savannah with an outstanding menu of freshly cooked foods from several African countries. If it is not the food you are going for why don’t you go and have fun with your friends at one of Twaala’s special events like the Shoestopper, where fine cuisine meets the lady with the finest pair of heels. Situated at Foxdale court in Roma, Twaala restaurant is B only approximately 30 minutes drive from the city centre.

E. Portico The Lusaka show grounds is host to the Agriculture and Commercial show every August of the year. However 365 days of that year Portico is the permanent residence and entertainment centre of the show grounds. With its chic decor and sophisticated atmosphere, Portico is the ideal chill out spot for the entrepreneur and working class. Nothing beats a weekend relaxation and time with friends after a hard week of paperwork, than Italian cuisine to sizzle your taste buds. You can chillax and catch up with friends as you enjoy the scrumptious Pizza with E a lovely glass of Italian wine topped with the friendly Italian hospitality.

F. Fresh View Cinema Sometimes chatting and talking is not the go to chill out idea if you’re simply in the mood to sit down be quiet and be entertained. That is when places like fresh View cinemas come in handy. Simply select the movie you are interested in, help yourself to a selection of Freshview snacks or simply go on a day when free popcorns and drinks are on offer to save a bit of cash. Bring some friends along and voilà, just like that, you have yourself a great time chilling out without the need of having to spark a conversation. Situated at Levy Mall and Manda Hill, the choice is yours to where you would like to spend your time chilling in front of the big screen.

Cam Kapanpi

Our previous destination Zambia took us to the South of Zambia; this time we travel to the East of the country and visit the South Luangwa National park. We go on a Norman Carr safari and take a look at Kapani Lodge, a comfortable family lodge situated on the banks of one of the Luangwa River’s many ox-bow lagoons, and Luwi Camp which consists of only 4 Chalets and is only open between May 15th and 31st October. Luwi Camp is nestled in the shade of huge mahogany trees,and is close to a permanent hippo and croc filled lagoon. If you’re a thrill seeker, this could be your ideal haven. LUWI CAMP

Luwi Camp

Room at night

Situated in a remote area, Lewi Camp is the perfect camp for walking safaris. With only 4 chalets; the rooms, which are built each season using natural materials, blend into the bush and are simple yet extremely comfortable with en-suite bathrooms and “all day” hot showers. Constructed using mainly natural materials, Luwi Camp, remains one of the most traditional camps with the added value of luxurious comfort and service. A large hippo filled lagoon is close by with a ‘hide’ for guests to watch the animals unnoticed high above the water, and it does not end there as the area is famous for its lions; thrill seekers are always keen to jump at the chance of tracking them on foot.

A friend to the environment, the camp is built using only natural resources every season and the camps are taken down at the end of each season, leaving nature to remain Visit: www.normancarrsafaris. com/camps/luwi or tel: + 260 216 unscathed. 246025/+ 260 216 246015

BREAKFAST

INTERESTING FACT: In 1950 when Norman Carr set up Zambia’s first photographic safari camp, he did so in cooperation with Paramount chief Nsefu of the Kunda Tribes and in partnership with the local community. This was the first example of what is now called community based tourism in Zambia if not in Africa and was the forerunner to many modern day concepts of community based, natural resource management and responsible tourism.

C5 Child’s Tracker Watch Take2Teq is offering a new solution in the form of the C5 Child’s GSM GPS Tracker Positioning Watch Phone. You can trust your children, but that does not always guarantee that wherever they are they are safe. With the increase in missing children, the GPS GSM Tracker Phone Watch comes in handy. It enables parents to keep track of their child using a smartphone. The watch offers the child a discrete way to send an instant alert should they be in trouble and to make and receive calls to up to 4 set numbers. If you don’t want your child to have a mobile phone, this offers them a communication device to use in the event of a problem. It has a SIM card and parents can locate their child using the ‘On Demand GPS location’ function which sends the GPS coordinates of the child to the pre-set mobile phone numbers of your choice. Intrusive you might say; there is more. With the intelligence voice monitoring function, it lets parents covertly dial into the watch and listen in.

icrosoft and Sony; the two major gaming companies, are at it again. Their constant competition to provide the best in gaming technology for the ever growing industry had them competing for the Amazon top spot right before E3. The Xbox One stormed to the top of Amazon’s pre-order charts less than a day after Microsoft reversed its DRM policies. Before E3, the console was significantly ahead of its rival from Sony according to Amazon. However, Sony’s E3 conference and its attack on Microsoft’s DRM approach saw its next gen console take the top spot. But, less than 24 hours after Microsoft reversed its decision to enforce DRM on the Xbox One console, had it returned to the top of the retailer’s pre-order charts. Only Sony’s The Last of Us for the PS3 has managed to keep Microsoft’s next generation console from also taking the overall sales top spot.

price point could be Microsoft’s Achilles heel. We are constantly looking for ways to save money in any way we can in today’s economy, and a hundred bucks cheaper could automatically steer the decision of the gamers towards Sony. Microsoft unveiled that their new console would cost $499/£425, a much rather steep price especially if you compare it to Sony’s competitive price point of £349/$399.

Both showcased an incredible list of titles that will be coming exclusively to each console. Sony might have won the battle of price and DRM, however Microsoft came on top with a stronger software lineup.

LEGALTAINMENT: COPYRIGHT

What is copyright? Keep earning money from your music long after you have retired. By Ethel Gondwe

T

Copyright is the means by which a person or a business makes a living from creativity. Copyright springs from a simple notion: the people that create, produce or invest in creative work should be the ones that decide how that work should be reproduced and made available to the public.

hrough copyright an extensive amount of individuals have been placed in a position of earning an income and the economies of several countries have been able to benefit from this. Copyright has accounted for tens of millions of jobs worldwide. The dramatic growth of the artistic, cultural and other creative industries in today’s major economies would have been impossible without the strong levels of copyright protection that those countries have developed over many decades. The rights holders get to determine whether and how copying, distributing, broadcasting and other uses of their works take place. This gives talented people the incentive to create great works, and entrepreneurs the economic reasons to invest in them.

In the music industry Copyright protects everyone involved - from the aspiring artist to the successful best-seller and from the local independent record company to the large multinational producer. It ensures that all the parties that have had a part in creating the music are rewarded for

their work. Most Zambian based artists release hordes of music as free downloads with very little precaution as to how to protect that music prior to those releases. There is a sense of accomplishment and pride that comes with completing a record and releasing it for the public to listen to however the real value is in the rights and the creativity that they protect. When your work also known as your intellectual property is duplicated or recreated without permission that is deemed as piracy, but how does one ensure that their work is protected? One of the things artists need to pay attention to is securing proof that they are the creator of the THE GLOBAL ZAMBIAN

FEATURE | LEGALTAINMENT intellectual property. This can be done through recording the dates on written material with a signature and witness signature. You can email the work to yourself and leave the email unopened until or if it is ever needed as evidence in a dispute. You can post the material to yourself via a recorded delivery service or you can simply register with a copyright body where your material can be tracked down for copyright theft. As a rights holder not only do you own that music but you have the opportunity to keep earning money off that music long after you retire. In order for that to happen though, you need to know about licensing. Licensing agencies around the world are at your disposal to facilitate the collection of your royalties. Companies like PRS, PPL, MCPS, and ZAMCOPS act as your gate keeper so that establishments and businesses that use your music pay up in accordance to the law. Many artists have lost a lot of money in the long term due to the lack of knowledge on these factors. As well as obtaining royalties from material aired on TV, Radio, you can also earn royalties from gigs. Most if not all venues that host events should be registered with some kind of licensing body as they tend to play music on a regular basis to the general public. Whenever an artist’s music is played the venue has an obligation to pay the artist the going fee for the usage of their recorded material. Licensing puts you at a great advantage on a worldwide scale as it is impossible to track down

where your music is being played especially with the technology in place, however it is the same technology that allows the licensing body’s to collect royalties on your behalf. Most licencing bodies are free to register with and the ones you have to pay to register normally have a minimal amount that you need to pay which will hardly break the bank. This is a small price to pay for years of unclaimed income. Making music, directing videos, creating commercials or even making movies is a fun process mostly done with the creators passion for their art, however maintaining these art forms is a costly process, and it is only wise as a creative to safeguard that work. For you to be able to earn money whilst you sleep, is pretty much a dream come true, that is what happens when your royalties are coming through; so why not take the time to invest in registering and protecting that work in the first place?

Roberto entered the music scene as a rapper, and later turned singer a�er being inspired by Usher’s hit song “My Way”. On his rise in the music industry and a spell in South Africa, Roberto’s career was propelled to the next level when he wrote songs for and worked with well�known South African ar�sts, such as Boom Shaka, Thebe and Buso, just to name a few. Roberto released his debut self��tled album in his na�ve tongue, which cemented his place in the music industry. He then followed that up with his sophomore album �tled “Akasuba”, where the 2009 award winning song of the year Akasuba named a�er the album, came from.

With this sin� gle, Roberto offers listeners a different taste of Afro�R&B whilst experimen�ng with heavy base drums that you cannot help but bop your head to as the chorus lets you get lost in the mood of the song. The follow up single to “Osanisiya So” �tled “Good Woman” reects Roberto’s love for R&B and will be the rst of Roberto’s more commercial sounding tracks that car� ries the listeners on to where the rst single le� off.

orn an only child and surrounded by a solid family Muzingo Banda never had an uncertain sense of self and that accounts for why the role of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was given to her and she did not mix or confuse it with her own. Her parents passed away when she was three, and she was raised by her grandparents. Muzingo grew up surrounded by cousins who she considers as siblings, and her aunt who she is named after was like a mother to her. She attended primary school at Namununga Basic School until grade three when she moved to Zimbabwe. She then studied Public Relations and Human Resource in Australia and later came back to Zambia to study a Bachelor of Arts in Education at the University of Zambia. Her experiences at university put her in a position to socialise with many people from different walks of life, and it tested different parts of her character. It was during her university days that her first interactions with the media happened. She was signed to X-Models, and she had her portfolio

COVER STORY | MUZINGO BANDA

“I was a little worried about being judged by society and by people thinking I am like Mimi”


COVER STORY | MUZINGO BANDA established there, however she received a call for a casting in a Zambian TV show called Club Risky Business. Although sceptical she auditioned and was chosen for a cameo role as Mimi. A couple of years down the line, a spin-off of Club Risky Business were casting, and she received the call to play Mimi once again. The spin-off is the now popular drama series Love Games, which promotes awareness for HIV and AIDS. The script presented a challenge to who Muzingo is and to her acting abilities and she jumped at the chance. Filming the first season was hectic and it took almost two months. Each day she had to get into character and she did her best to portray Mimi every time.

On her experience with the cast and crew, Muzingo said she had a pleasant time and even made friends with some of them well after shooting was wrapped. “I was a little worried about being judged by society and by people thinking I am like Mimi and I was right, there are people out there who cannot imagine that I am a completely different person compared to Mimi. But after seeing the support from my friends and family and people from my church I realised that the people I care about, care about me and they know who I am. So after I came to terms with that, random people and their misguided opinions stopped mattering.”

Muzingo also known as Zee by those close to her “Being Mimi was a challenge,” Muzingo said. got along well with everybody on set of the shoot “Sometimes it took a lot for me to wrap my head of the cover and spread shoot for this interview. around how somebody could be that way and The shoot took place at the Kalimba Reptile Park still live each day.

One would not think it if they were to base her real life on her ‘Mimi’ character in Love Games but, Muzingo is a devout Christian. Her journey started a year ago after she became weary of living a life that felt empty and feeling numb. Her pastors and brothers and

sisters in Christ have been extremely supportive and have really helped her with her life by just being there for her emotionally and spiritually. “In God I have found peace and an inexplicable joy. It’s straight forward, if you seek him earnestly and you pray you feel the change in the way that you look at your life. To me, nothing happens accidentally because God always puts you in line with your destiny so even when I make my decisions and live my life I know I am not alone.” “I fear letting God down, letting my family down and not being where I want to be. But I believe and pray that with God, I will be where I want to be. “ On what audiences are to expect next in series 2 of Love Games, Muzingo gave a coy smile and expressed that fans should expect more drama, more characters and a more intense storyline; as characters will be unravelled and the story will really dig deeper into the characters.

“I enjoyed working on Love Games because it wasn’t just entertainment, it was there to show people that attitudes matter. That each of us has the ability to make changes even through small actions; we could stop the spread of HIV. In the end, there is no grey, just black and white and we all have the power in us to do anything and be anything.” Catch Muzingo Banda on the 2nd series of Love Games expected to air in July; if you have not had an opportunity to watch series one, you can catch up online on YouTube and Vimeo.

Married women -v- Single Women The Friendship dilemma

One of the best days of a woman’s life is her wedding day. Going into wedded bliss presents a whole new lifestyle that the soon to be bride will have to embark on. With the great responsibilities that come with being a wife and potential mother, where does that leave time for your girlfriends? How do you balance life with your girlfriends, or if you are the only single lady remaining out of your group, how do you cope with not having to be around your friends as often as you used to prior to them getting married? What sort of effects does this have on the friendships, do people grow apart and go their own way or do they adjust to the circumstances they are faced with?

T

In the olden days it was normal for a woman to get married even as young as 16, and as society evolved worldwide some traditions fell to the wayside with women’s rights being implemented around the world and enabling women to have jobs, more and more women became independent and with that independence, less conformed to marrying too early. Like fashion certain cultures seemed to have taken a 360 with young people becoming very successful in their careers before reaching the legal age of 18, and so marriage has taken a route to that direction as well; with women getting married as soon as they graduate from university or even shortly after high school in some parts. So finding a 21 year old sending around invitations for her nuptials is no longer surprising, however when this happens in some cases they tend to leave their group of friends and “traditionally” must find new married friends or if they do decide to continue to hang out with their old friends (admittedly not all who are happy for the new bride), will most likely be faced with statements like “you have become old and boring since you got married,” “I wouldn’t want to get married at your age I am too young,” “I don’t know what the fuss about marriage is, it usually ends in divorce,” or “We are going out somewhere, but we know you married women won’t be able to come.” Those statements

alone ostracize the newly wed from the friends she holds dear to her heart and sometimes the consequences can be devastating emotionally, like all women, it is healthy to be able to socialize with your friends from time to time, so what is one to do if that is the type of attitude your only friends are giving you? This situation is merely being addressed as a means of establishing common ground for the married and single friends, like most things in life, we all have individual roads we have to travel, and the love and encouragement of our friends plays a vital role on how well we manage on that road, and that includes staying single or getting married. For the married woman the idea of a two income household is a bonus, the annual income doubles once the couple have said their “I dos”. They have found “The One” so they do not have to keep on the prowl for Mr Right and wonder when they will be able to start their own family. A new family is

he pressures of having to be separated from your friends because one or more members of your group got married are evident in some situations and the results are unfortunately not so pleasing in some isolated cases. We have often heard of stories and situations where married women have been found to bully single women, we have at one time or another heard stories of how single women have had unpleasant comments made towards them by married friends, colleagues or even family members concerning their status. Very rarely have we heard of how single women bully married women. This might seem unheard of, however it does exist.


Lifestyle | Married women -v- single women criticizing appearance and behaviour, lying and betraying intimate secrets. These attributes stem from insecurity and jealousy. For friends that do value their friendship, will find time to sit and listen to you as you address what they are doing to you and how it makes you feel. A good friend will always be willing to listen and adjust their attitude towards you; sometimes insecurities can make individuals behave out of character, however if no one addresses the issue first hand, the tormentor will be none the wiser, and a perfectly good friendship could come to an end simply because a clear line of communication was not established. inherited, and so she has a whole bunch of people she has to make room for in her life. They have a live in best friends and more family celebrations to attend, for some this can be exciting and for others quite scary. Decision making is less strenuous as you have a second opinion on almost everything. You’re married now, so the worry of being pressured into premarital sexual activities is no longer an issue. Special occasions are always celebrated no matter where your partner is in the world, and if you have bagged yourself a chivalrous groom, almost every day is Valentine’s Day. For the newly wed, all these benefits are heaven sent, and as we do, these are the sort of things we would like to tell our girlfriends about. The unexpected cases where married women are ostracized by their single friends for various reasons that cannot all be addressed, is disheartening to say the least. The opposite also occurs when a married woman can sometimes see all those benefits and become rather smug, resulting in her looking down on her single friends, because they do not “have it all.” Women married or single on occasion seem to find themselves at loggerheads. They may not fight with their fists but they can inflict dreadful emotional pain on their victims. Women bully women through gossiping, attacking each other’s reputations,

This is an on-going cycle that needs to be put to a halt, and communication is key to this. With women doing great things in society today; we really need to be feeling empowered and inspired. The last thing that is needed is making each other feel inferior to one another. What needs to be realised is that when your friend gets married, if she is genuinely your friend, she will find a way to ensure that you do not feel out of place just because she is married, and vice versa if your friend is the only married one amongst the single ones, you will empathise with her and find a way to participate in activities that she can be a part of. The most important thing to look at here is self; if you are secure within yourself as a woman, single or not, the need to make your friends feel bad because they have not found “The One” or because your friends is not able to commit to the typical single activities you’re accustomed to, will not be necessary. A confident woman surrounds herself with equally confident women, who advice and encourage each other positively. If you find yourself at a loss and constantly in the receiving end of the torment whether you’re single or married, maybe it is time you re-evaluated your friendship circle and maybe you do need to look for new more secure friends. If you have been a victim of bullying and torment, or know of anyone that is in need of help, and would like to receive advice, information or share your story, you can write to us at helpme@theglobalzambian.com THE GLOBAL ZAMBIAN

hishala Chitoshi is one of the pioneers of the Zambian entertainment industry. Notable for his contribution on radio as Gesh Groove on radio Phoenix, his journey however did not begin there. Chishala gained his educational qualifications in several parts of the world including Botswana, United Kingdom and Zambia. Having obtained his LLB Foundation Course Certificate at Ealing College of higher education, he later attended Thames Valley University London, where he obtained an LLB Degree with Honours before returning to Zambia to take a Legal practitioners Qualifying Course at the law practice institute in Lusaka. Education has played a big part in Chishala Chitoshi’s career, an admirable quality and something many aspire towards. However during his law degree, Chishala spent some months whilst on holiday from his studies, working as a radio presenter for the Zambian National Broadcasting Corporation on radio 4; this was his debut in entertainment. It is his qualifications in law that later obtained him the position as an Advocate at Lloyd, Jones & Collins.

had to straddle the intense studies that came with pursuing a qualification as a lawyer and the crazy hours of the entertainment industry. His time on radio lasted until 1996 whereafter his focus remained on law as he worked for Lloyd, Jones & Collins and later with Abha Patel & Associates. After a hiatus of approximately 3 years from Chishala Chitoshi interviewing Bob Nkosha as broadcasting, Chishala’s one of his characters Dolika career took a turn up hill when he landed a job at the Zambia National Commercial Bank as a Senior Litigation Officer and simultaneously landing the Producer & Presenter position at Radio Phoenix.

Whilst producing and directing Studio 53, Chishala ventured into the un chartered territory of setting up his own radio station. Flava FM would later become one of Zambia’s leading radio stations; an idea that dated back 2004 with its incorporation in 2005. Flava FM is quoted as stating that they are “Targeting the urban youth.” Situated in the Copperbelt Flava FM is the only prominent radio station in the province and aims at being an essential part of the regeneration of the Copperbelt.

When he is not attending to his law duties, being CEO of Flava FM or presenting for M-NET, Chishala Chitoshi is one of the most sought after Zambian MCs. His client list ranges from large corporations such as Barclays Bank and Coca Cola to private sector business. He has had the privilege of being a part of some high profile events including MCing for first republican president of Zambia Dr Kenneth Kaunda’s 80th birthday that had a number of heads of state in attendance. Pull him away from all the accolades of showbiz, and you will find that Chishala is a devoted father and husband; he dedicates time to organise and coordinate fund-raising events for the under-privileged. When he is not busy writing articles for newspapers and magazines, his community takes precedence and his local church is no exception. His whirlwind of a career has earned Chishala the 2006 Honour with the first True Ebony production’s Award as Zambia’s best individual promoter and in 2013 a nomination at the African Global DJ awards in the best Southern Africa DJ category. Chishala was the only Zambian DJ nominated with the other nominees being South African. A jack of all trades and certainly a master at all, Chishala’s perseverance, focus and dedication to mother Zambia not only makes him inspirational to Zambians but to many on a global scale.

Nomakanjani is a cultural group based in the heart of Lusaka, Zambia that performs traditional, cultural and

foreign dances for various events and functions. Through this group the members have had a rare opportunity to travel to various parts of Africa with one of those countries being Zimbabwe where the group got its name; this was after the group had a successful performance that the audience loved. The main purpose of the dance group is to uphold and maintain Zambia’s culture and tradition, without the need of conforming to the western culture.


CULTURAL ARTS | NOMAKANJANI ARTS

According to Mr. Peter Tembo the man in charge of the group, the birth of the group is an interesting story as no one saw the group attaining any level of success. “This group started as a part time thing, we would just go to a place called African Direction in Mtendere, to learn how to dance cultural and other dances, and by then ART was one of the recreational facilities that African Direction used to offer”. The group started with six people as a way of learning ART and dancing until one day, one of the members brought the idea of taking it seriously and earning money from it, and that’s how

the dance group was born. Months into the making, the group received new members from society who were eager to learn the dances and be part of the group. The young people that joined the group comprised of girls and boys of whom some are still in high school, others are in college and sadly some are school drop outs. Nomakanjani has a total of 23 dancers but only 18 are active, with only the founders of the group being married and the rest being single. Dances are creative as they are made up and worked on after the idea has been initiated, the dance ideas that Nomakanjani come up with have produced dance THE GLOBAL ZAMBIAN

CULTURAL ARTS | NOMAKANJANI ARTS

In some situations the group finds itself having to split up into two, when demand rises for them to perform at different events at the same time. The members are not in a position to decline bookings as they do not have any form of sponsorship. The group is currently selfsponsored and the money realized from gigs is utilized to sponsor the school dropouts of the group back into school. Regardless of the exposure they have received, and being active in seeking sponsors, Nomakanjani are yet to succeed in obtaining sponsors. As a result they have to rely on themselves for financing in order to enhance the group. In as much as the group earns a descent income from gigs, members still have to maintain additional jobs which allow them to rehearse three times in a week for two hours with rehearsals only able to take place after 17:00hrs. Mr. Tembo explained that the members have to support Nomakanjani, and through the dedication of the group’s members, the income generates itself as they cannot sit in waiting in reliance of sponsorship being offered to them. “The ministry in charge has its own traditional group, so the further we the cultural groups go when it comes to such; are to compete with traditional groups and not sponsorship”. Nomakanjani has had a very positive impact on the youth, they have taught them to have confidence, to be courageous, and most importantly to follow their dreams and not pay attention to critics. Nomakanjani is one group that has stood the test of time even after family members of the dancers have reprimanded and criticized them against being dancers. Some members have families that laugh and say to them that one can’t make a living out of dance let alone pay rent out of it, but with perseverance, Nomakanjani has shamed its

critics as they manage to feed their members and assist with them affording a standard lifestyle. The groups appealing dance routines have enabled them to create awareness about Zambia and its culture in the various African countries they have travelled to for gigs. After its genesis in 2007, Nomakanjani has seen its membership grow, they have travelled around Africa in countries like Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa to mention but a few. Nomakanjani is a prime example of the richness in culture Zambia possesses and their appeal to other nations just goes to show how ready the world is in receiving what Zambia has to offer. Greater things are expected from the group and The Global Zambian Magazine are looking forward to seeing them represent Zambia on the world stage, as the possibilities are endless and like their name no matter what happens their path is destined for success.

arefeet Theatre can be best described as the voice for the children. The creative arts and performance project was created as a portal for at risk children, who are likely to be disengaged from their families and society. Made up of mostly young performers, the young artists display some of the most amazing theatrical skills ever witnessed in Zambia. Most of these artists previously performed in the streets, but with Barefeet they have been provided with an opportunity to be part of a big family and take on responsibilities within the organisation as facilitators and managers. The versatility of Barefeet has them creating a variation of acts such as political satires, to issue-based drama and musical theatre. Through out the course of the year the workshop facilitators together with the children of Barefeet produce performances

that culminate towards the annual ‘Barefeet Festival’ which takes place every October. With more than 30 members located in five cities across Zambia; the members work in various disciplines therefore passing on their skills and encouraging creativity, discipline and ambition among the young people. Barefeet’s ethos is that “by giving children some encouragement, confidence, self belief and allowing them to ‘shine’, you can really start to work together to find brighter opportunities.” “It enables children to be children It enables children to be children and to discuss topics or issues they feel important and ultimately allows them to showcase their talent while giving them dignity and worth.“

CHILDREN’S COUNCIL Barefeet have a Children’s Council that consists of members from the age of 12-18. The young activists act as ambassadors for Barefeet and advocate for a free and just world. Children’s Council members are provided with

the tools and skills necessary to become peer educators and be positive role models who in turn can motivate and support their communities in developing positive and healthy behaviour and life choices. They undertake informative workshops on various topics relevant to their situation such as drug abuse, HIV/STI prevention and intervention as well as health and nutrition promotion

The children’s council are elected on a yearly basis by their peers and consists of approximately 40 OVCs. The information that the Children’s Council learn is then replayed to the public through theatrical performances. According to Barefeet “The C.C are also responsible for producing Barefeet’s monthly newsletter, are encouraged to partake in public speaking workshops, debates held within our various partner centres and local schools, and ultimately the C.C are empowered to lobby the government on issues surrounding the fair and just treatment and protection of OVC’s. Ultimately, the C.C provides the vulnerable children of Zambia a platform from which to have their voices heard.” More on Barefeet can be found at www.barefeettheatre.org

he Zambia Police is committed to providing a high quality service to the people of Zambia by upholding and applying the law fairly and firmly. The force applies proactive methods to prevent crime, arrest those who break the law and take them to court and assist the victims of crimes through counselling. Since 2012 the news stations and the classifieds in the newspapers have been filled with missing people but to the unaffected it is a grey area.

ing. He was an energetic boy and always playing around the neighbourhood so at first I didn’t realise he was missing. When we realised it, we went to the police and reported it and they told us to wait 48 hours. During that time we made calls to friends and nobody had seen him. We took his picture to a TV station so that they could publicise it but nobody came forward. After a week of crying and praying we had tried all we could and then all we could do was wait. Two weeks later the police called and they had found his body and it was at the mortuary. The postmortem showed that he sustained head injuries and was starved prior to his death. During the wait I had a bad feeling but I had to keep on holding on. Right now I’m just sad that I wasn’t a better parent, I’m depressed that I couldn’t protect him and be there when he needed me most. I’m hurt and confused because I have no explanation for what went wrong and how it happened. I’m sad that he suffered prior to his death; I miss him.” Accounts similar to this are told by many who have lost their children and whose children have never been found. The fact that the success rates of finding a child are so low makes people feel uneasy and insecure.

A parent’s love for their child is natural and unconditional and with the cost of living increasing globally, parents commit a lot of their time into making sure their children grow up to be healthy, productive and stable individuals who can have full lives and contribute to the family and the nation’s productivity at large. When a child goes missing the hopes of seeing the child grow and become somebody their parents had envisioned them to be are shattered, and parents are left feeling hopeless and empty. Upon realising their child is missing, the first step usually taken by parents is to inform the police, the police then place measures towards finding the missing child.

TA K E C A R E O F Y O U R S K I N The skin like the first impression of your personality has an effect on how people see you at first glance, well looked after hydrated skin will have a natural glow, giving you a youthful look; dehydrated neglected skin will have a dry appearance with wrinkles making you look aged beyond your years. So how do you maintain youthful looking skin that will give you a year round glow? TGZ has a few suggestions. your skin. Don’t smoke; some think smoking is only bad for your lungs but it is also bad for your skin. Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin, as well as depleting the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to your skin’s health.

Begin with looking at what you eat; this might still be a grey area to the effects your food has on your skin however, research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. Do not stress yourself out; whatever is not urgent does not need to be fussed over. Manage a realistic diary that does not push that stress button. Take time to participate in activities that you enjoy, because uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. Be gentle to your skin; shaving and washing of your skin daily does eventually take its toll, so limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin and leave it dry. Avoid strong soaps, shave carefully using shaving cream or some kind of lubrication to avoid damaging the skin, moisturise dry skin preferably with a moisturiser that contains SPF, after washing pat or blot dry instead of rubbing, this will keep some moisture on

Words By Ethel Gondwe

aking care of your skin might seem like a lot of work, but like all your daily tasks,it is just a matter of routine. You need to be able to take a few moments each day to ensure that you give your skin a good daily regime. It does not end there as what you do on your daily endeavours also have great impact on maintain healthy skin.

Keep away from the sun; one of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. Places like Zambia have all year round sun so what do you do? Use sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. When you’re outdoors, reapply sunscreen every two hours , or more often if you’re swimming or perspiring a lot. Get under a shade, carry a fancy looking umbrella if you have to. Avoid the sun between 10 am and 4 pm, when the sun’s rays are strongest.

The spring/summer fashion trend is the easiest fashion trend to wear for one main reason. Almost everybody has a black and a white ensemble in their wardrobe.

tip s

to

When you embark on a diet, you need to practice self control and make wise decisions on what you choose to eat, resist the cake and opt for the more healthy apple for dessert.

Diet the Healthy Way

01 Say NO to scales

One of the biggest mistakes people make when dieting is, they keep track of their weight using a scale. This is a no go area and bad start to a dieting regime. What you need to realise when it comes to weighing yourself on a scale is that, different body types weigh differently not necessarily because of their weight in fat but body type. Some petit individuals can be found to weigh more than someone that physically look bigger than them, does that mean they are fat? No however their bone density could mean that they will weigh more. An average adult has 206 bones in their body, and the number of rib bones and bones in the hands and feet do vary from person to person. Muscle can also have an effect on how much you weight, and lean muscle can make you look slimmer and yet weigh more. So relying on scales when dieting, is not a good recommendation.

78

THE GLOBAL ZAMBIAN

02 Measure your clothes not your waist

The scale issue has already been addressed and so you ask, how then do I know how I am making progress? Well, if you are dieting to lose or gain weight, most of your clothes should be able to tell you how much weight you have lost/gained. Bearing in mind that some fabrics do stretch or shrink, your clothes still remain one of the most reliable sources of seeing how much weight loss you have made. This helps in maintaining a realistic approach to your regime, the last thing you would like is drastic weight loss/gain as this will require you to purchase a whole new wardrobe at once, and not forgetting the excess skin that is the result of drastic weight loss, or stretch marks. A dilemma most who do not lose/gain weight gradually to allow the skinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elasticity to adjust with the body. This can take a toll on your finances as it is not common practice to always buy a new wardrobe at one go; as most people tend to save up first for a shopping spree. However noticing your weight loss/gain as you go along will enable you to start saving, or purchase items bit by bit. Be aware that in as much as your clothes size will help you measure your size, this should not be a big part of your dieting regime as how you feel,and how healthy your diet is, matters the most.

June/July 2013

03 Keep track of what you eat Some might find this to be absurd but this is a very effective method of dieting. Sometimes we eat more than we need for our daily intake; mostly when we are either socialising, or when we spend a substantial amount of time at home. The best way to know how much you are eating so that you can keep it under control is through keeping a food diary. This does not have to be some A4 book that takes up space and is difficult to carry around but rather a small notebook/pad that you can easily move around with. When you do this, you will be surprised how much food you do eat in a day. This will allow you to see if your diet consists of healthy or unhealthy foods; keep a look out for fatty, creamy, and sugary foods. However if you find your daily food intake is healthy, then your concentration should be on portions. You will need to analyse how much to eat and what to cut down on.


HEALTH & FITNESS

06 Avoid the yo-yo diet Yo-yo dieting poses great danger to your health on a long term basis. When you yo-yo diet, yes you will lose weight and feel great for a short period of time, and then you will find the weight piling back on quickly as it is hard to maintain long term weight loss if you lost the weight using a yo-yo diet.

05 Exercise and 04 Opt for healthy foods You would like to go on a diet but you cannot seem to resist those burgers, or chicken and chips. The good news is, if you opt for the healthier versions of burgers and chicken and chips, as long as you watch your portions, you should be able to continue your healthy diet without any problems. The bad news is, you cannot keep eating the unhealthy burger and chips options, they contain saturated fats which could raise the cholesterol in the blood therefore putting you at risk of heart disease. Try trimming off the fat from your steaks, use lower fat milk, skin the chicken to remove the saturated fat that lies underneath the skin, buy lean meats which contain less fat. Eat more vegetables and avoid frying your foods; instead, boil, steam, grill that way you do not need to add oil or butter.

snacks Dieting is not so effective without exercise, and the process of exercising uses up a lot of energy meaning you will be needing to fuel up more often. In order to stick to your dieting regime, whenever you feel peckish and are tempted to snack on crisps, pick up a piece of fruit. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a fan of fresh fruits, eat dried fruits, be careful not to buy the ones containing sugary additives, so make sure you read the label. Eating fruit adds to your energy through carbohydrates and will sustain you until your next meal.

Yo-yo diets are extreme diets that are difficult to maintain. Individuals go on hypocaloric diets that impose limits that naturally the human body struggles with. In time they tend to experience effects like fatigue, and depression, pushing the individual to revert to their old eating habits, and the cycle starting all over again. It might take a week or two before you notice any changes when you follow a healthy diet, but they will steadily appear. Keeping your motivation up is one of the most difficult aspects of dieting. There will be days when healthy eating goes out the window, and there will be weeks where you may not see any changes, however this is where you need to practice patience and will power. Any person that is serious about taking on a diet, will follow the healthy dieting plan,and in the long run enjoy the benefits of a heathy lifestyle and healthy looking body. THE GLOBAL ZAMBIAN

Make your own

Most people fancy themselves as a bit of a cook/amateur chef. So to encourage all those home chefs, here is a recipe that you can add to your repertoire of well made dishes.

Baked Bean Salad Ingredients Serves 4 1 can baked beans 1 can mixed veg 2 medium fresh salad tomatoes (optional) Salad cream 4 Eggs (to hard boil) Salt to taste 1/2 a teaspoon ground black pepper

SALAD WITHOUT TOMATOES

SALAD WITH TOMATOES Directions Note: allow for approximately 40 minutes for preparation and cooking. Boil the four eggs in a saucepan until hardboiled (approx 15 minutes) While the eggs are boiling, pour the contents of the baked beans in a salad bowl, and add the mixed veg and mix gently with a wooden spoon. Once the mixed veg and baked beans are mixed in, add the salad cream, according to taste. Mix with the wooden spoon, gently and careful not to smash the beans and veg. (Take the fresh salad tomatoes and dice into small pieces to add to the mix) Cover the salad bowl with the mix with cling film or a lid and place in a refrigerator. Take the hard boiled eggs and place them in cold water to peel out the shells. Rinse them to make sure you have removed any shell pieces that might be stuck on the egg whites. On a chopping board, dice the eggs into medium pieces. Remove the salad bowl with the mix out of the fridge, and remove the cling film or lid. Add the diced eggs to the mixture and gently stir it in with the wooden spoon Add some salt to taste and sprinkle the black paper, and stir once more, replace the cling film and place into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes for chilling. Serve as a side to your meal, with a BBQ, or as a small portion snack.

YOUTH | BULLYING

Let’s discuss: bullying Bullying is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with immediately. I have been a victim of bullying in London and here in Zambia, and it is not a nice feeling. It is hard to be yourself, when people find ways to make you feel like the way you are is wrong, or silly and make fun of you for it. In England it got so bad, my mum threatened to report the school to the board of governors, but that did not help. Harry Daka one of the TGZ writers helped me with interviews with other teenagers/school children who are getting bullied and being the bullies. Some students are abused by more aggressive student mentally, physically and emotionally for different reasons, sometimes no reason at all.

Victims are threatened or manipulated by the bullies to think that if they expose the assault they are encountering they will create an even worse situation for themselves outside the school walls. Victims are forced to endure the suffering until they leave the school under any circumstances. The situations are even more extreme in large institutions where students have minimal personal relationships with teachers and schools where disciplinary committees are not in place or taken seriously.

“Being called a snitch is the worst because even your friends won’t let you in on everything” Parents of the bullied usually have an unpredictable response when their victimized children inform them of what goes on at school some think it’s not too serious of an issue and only a few will take action to enforce preventive measures. In some one off situations certain characters have immunity from discipline and punishment because of their backgrounds; who their parents are in society, what their sponsors have done for the institutions and other similar reasons. These individuals mostly take advantage of their peers because of the superiority they feel and because the school classifies them as elite students. INTERVIEWS George is a primary student at a boarding school who says he has always been forced to give a certain amount of his provisions for the school term to the senior bullies, and from the looks of it seems they treat it as seriously as revenue would treat

Bullying Written by Harry Daka tax collections in an economy, in exchange for the promise of not being constantly mocked and nagged the whole term. “As a new student, I was told about how the older students would harass the juniors for their stuff and I did not believe it until my arm was nearly broken when I resisted submitting to their requests.” He says he wouldn’t dare expose the bullies after that day because most of them are decorated students such as head boys and senior prefects who are put in charge of certain events he wouldn’t want to miss out on or be

disadvantaged in. George says he knows of a pupil in his school who was very good at basketball but he was laid off the team because the bullies did not like him At a certain day school Thomas was responsible for the expulsion of a certain bully and ever since then he has been labelled a snitch by his close friends. He says he wishes he

YOUTH | BULLYING never bothered exposing the assault he went through because the ridicule and resentment is harder to endure than the mockery he went through because now he faces humiliation on a wider scale with being labelled a snitch. “Being called a snitch is the worst because even your friends won’t let you in on everything they are up to because they don’t trust anymore and feel you would sell them out on everything they do.” It is sad how Thomas has more issues to deal with at school than just getting good grades and this is certainly going to have an effect on his overall academic performance. A self-proclaimed bully who would rather remain anonymous said he loves the benefits bullying others comes with. “It’s either you are the bully or you are the bullied so it’s up to one to decide, and I think I made a wise decision” he said with no remorse. He said his favourite part of being a bully is how he can have his homework done by the geeks while he plays video games relaxed at home. Lisa a female student says she found a way to be safe at school. By joining alliances she depends on the ‘power of the pack’ and the bullies are usually harmless when they are outnumbered. Bullying is a really critical situation and has devastating consequences as it can psychologically disturb a young person making them suicidal and social phobic in some cases. Programs against bullying should be advocated by every school administration worldwide and bullying policies should be enforced to create stable environments for children all across the world. This is a very serious form of violence which needs to come to an end.

If you are not sure of what bullying is, this guide should help you recognise if you are a bully or a victim of bullying.

Types of bullying Verbal Bullying : The Bully saying things to you • Name Calling, not just calling you names but calling your loved one names this can be very hurtful • Threatening you, by saying an older brother or sister is going’ to hurt you, or they are waiting for you after school. Physical Bullying • Hitting, kicking, biting, scratching, pushing, and tripping you up on purpose. Anything that hurts you by touching you is physical bullying. This is also a criminal offence and nobody is allowed to hit you Indirect Bullying • Ignoring someone, leaving them out or not allowing them to join in a game • Spreading Rumours, talking about you behind your back and saying things that are not true • ‘The bad eyes’, someone glaring or giving you threatening looks, this is very difficult to prove but can be just as distressing Technological Bullying • Internet abuse: Using social networking sites to show picture, embarrass others, set up groups and encourage others to take part in bullying online. This is VERY DANGEROUS as we can give out personal information that can get into the wrong hands. • Instant Messenger: Bullies can come into our homes and abuse us on IM • Chat rooms, using chat rooms to spread gossip and hurt peoples feelings • Abusive text messages, sending nasty text messages and not knowing who they are from • Happy Slapping, this is when you use a phone or a video camera and film someone being slapped or attacked unknowingly. This is assault and we would always advise you to report any happy slapping incident to the police. • Silent or abusive phone calls


INTERVIEW | ZAMBIA’S TATTOO GURU

The art of the tattoo TGZ speaks to the leading tattoo artist in Zambia aka Zambia’s Tattoo Guru By Kanekwa Tundashi

T

attoos are created by inserting indelible ink beneath the skins surface. According to Wikipedia, the first written reference to the word “tattoo”(or Samoan “Tatau”) appears in the journal of Joseph Banks, the naturalist aboard Captain Cook’s ship the HMS Endeavour” The word tattoo is said to have two major derivations-from the Polynesian word ‘ta’ which means striking something and the Tahitian word ‘tatau’ which means to mark something.

It is not certain how tattoos came about but they date back to 4th millennium BC, where several different tribes are thought to have used tattoos for healing properties and some for their own traditional reasons. Despite the social sciences growing fascination with tattooing, and the immense popularity of tattoos themselves, the practice has not left much of a historical record. Mutakela Eugene Lisimba also known as The Zambian Tattoo Guru is behind all the skin art that we see in Zambia today. The talented artist has a knack of transferring fine art onto skin with finesse and absolute ease. No wonder he is The Zambian Tattoo Guru. The Guru, as I shall refer to him, started drawing at a very tender age. He went to Chalo and Lusaka West Schools where he started im-

proving on his talent. He took advantage of the Art teachers at his school that helped him with ideas and how to go about the designs. After completing his secondary education, the Guru thought of opening his own tattoo studio in Lusaka and most of the clients were his friends from school. He works alone in the studio and sometimes teaches those that are interested in learning how to make tattoos. He said it was hard for his family and friends to accept and embrace his work but with time they understood how much he was attached to his designs and the overwhelming response he got from customers. With people from all walks of life queuing up to receive a tattoo

from the Guru, word certainly did go out on his vast talent, as some of Zambia’s celebrities have also dropped by for their tattoos. On weekends, the studio is usually packed with clients eager to get their tattoos done. This could partly be due to the fact that majority of the people we see on TV today are spotting a tattoo or two, and so it is not surprising to see individuals in Zambia jumping at the chance of getting a professionally done tattoo to follow the trend. The charges for his work vary depending on the size of the tattoo, with the smallest costing 150Kr and the largest costing 5000Kr. The smallest tattoo takes approximately 10-15 minutes. The tattoo Guru has had opportunities of going to towns like Ndola, Kitwe as well as Livingstone to showcase his talent to different kinds of people and also to meet other tattoo artists. He has had several interviews on both print publications and TV to promote and talk about his work, a clear sign that people have taken note of his skill and are interested to see what he can do. When asked about having competition for his trade, the guru said he is the only expert Zambia has at the moment that is able to work on at least five people in a day. The Guru accepted the fact that in each and every business there are drawbacks such as criticism and jealousy. He has had a number of people condemning his work and encouraging him to change his career

but he uses all this as motivation to even work harder. He further emphasized that once a tattoo has been made it cannot be removed unless they use a razor machine. As far as making even more progress for his business in the next few years; tattoo lovers in Zambia will have to wait a while as he will be travelling to the United Kingdom for school next year to learn more on Art and Design; meaning the studio will be closed for approximately 5years. Something a lot of people might not be aware of is that, to become a tattoo artist, you need to be good at drawing and sketching. So like the tattoo Guru you need to hone your skills from an early age, and you need to have passion for it in order to pursue a career as a tattoo artist.

BUSINESS | YOUR BODY LANGUAGE AND BUSINESS

Your Body

Language and Business Written by Ethel Gondwe

Body language can make or break a deal. How you carry yourself when engaging with different individuals reflects highly on you and a lasting impression is what you expect to leave your counterparts with. Having the right body language will determine if people are willing to conduct business with you as much as what you say will.

W

hen I was in high school, there was a girl a year below me that I admired. She exuded such confidence and carried herself in ways that made her stand out instantaneously. She walked with her head held high and with confident steps; one day I asked her why she walked the way she did, and she replied and said, “When you walk with confidence people see you as confident no matter what your mood is.” From then on, I started paying attention to body language and the impact it has on our daily lives when interacting with other people. I had no idea that the way you present yourself through your body language can either deter or invite people. When I entered into the business world, I realised what a vital role body language has on everyday face to face business transactions whether you are a company, client, employer or employee. It is common knowledge when attending an interview, the importance of your posture, you are required to sit upright, smile, give eye contact and acknowledge what the interviewer is saying by nodding, mirroring, open gestures etc. These rules also apply when you are trying to broker a business deal or running a company. If you find that you are more of an introvert, it is good practice to be aware of your body language as most individuals that are introverts tend to have a naturally closed body language; folded arms, slouching when sitting, lowering of chin/ head. These attributes can have a negative first impression towards the people you are trying to impress. At the same time extroverts need to be equally careful so as not to overwhelm the people you are interacting with, an over-enthusiastic demeanour, the misuse of open gestures; this is when you need to practice to curb your enthusiasm. A balance needs to be established on what will appear too little or too much. A lot of the things we do naturally on a regular basis stem from habit, so getting yourself into

the habit of giving off the correct gestures in a business situation will put you in a position of being able to engage easily with the people you are interacting with without the distraction of thinking too much about whether your body language is presenting you how you would like to be perceived. The following are some guidelines of gestures that play a vital role not just for business but most of your day to day life.  STANDING: Keep your back straight, middle section in alignment with your back, shoulders back, and head up.  SITTING: Sit with a straight back and with your legs together in front of you or crossed, either at the knee or at the ankle.  HANDS: Monitor your hand movements; a task that does not come easy. Avoid waving them about as though you are trying to swat a fly, avoid folding them as this construes being on the defensive.  HEAD MOVEMENTS: Nodding your head can be used in agreement or disagreement, be careful not to nod your head too much as it will appear as though you are not acknowledging the information you are receiving and are merely trying to impress, and that is not impressive.  FACIAL EXPRESSIONS: Facial expressions are critical in your range of body language. No other part of your body can convey the immense richness of nonverbal communication that your face does for instance, a smile symbolises generosity, sincerity, and a non-aggressive appearance. A forced smile on the other hand, portrays discomfort. Frowns can symbolise anger, upset, but on the other hand concentration. Raised eyebrows show surprise and sometimes attentiveness.


BUSINESS | YOUR BODY LANGUAGE AND BUSINESS

 EYES: Maintain eye contact if you are on a one to one situation, make an effort to make eye contact with everyone if in a group setting and not just one individual, avoid looking at your hands or around the room as that shows a lack of interest. In as much as you are to watch your body language to see what message you’re giving off when interacting with other people, you also need to be on the lookout for their body language. This will help you analyse how well you are doing at the interview or business meeting. If the body language of a potential client is signalling to you that they are bored the likelihood of that is they are, and that is your cue to change your pitch or your body language.

Be on the look out Some things to look out for on others, when interacting with them:  Watch the face - it will usually give off a quick involuntary and sometimes subconscious twitch when something happens that irritates, excites, or amuses them.

Leave a lasting impression After you have signed the contract, accepted the job offer, or exchanged business cards; remember to make a winning departure: Stand tall, shake hands warmly, make eye contact, smile, say “thank you,” and leave your counterpart with the impression that you are someone he or she should look forward to dealing with in the future. Next time you find yourself looking down when walking, or twiddling your thumbs when having a meeting, stop and think about what impression you are giving off. Do you seem confident enough to be handed that million dollar contract, or are you perceived as too soft that you cannot handle that level of responsibility? Test yourself by asking your friends or colleagues to give you feedback and work at it from there.

 If they lean forward, they are interested in listening to you.  When observing others, be subtle about it, staring can come across as invasive and make you seem strange.  Keep in mind that each person has their own unique body language called baseline behaviours. Pay special attention to changes in body language rather than the body language itself.  It’s easy to spot a confident person: they will make prolonged eye contact and have a strong posture. They may also sit or stand very correct.

After some minutes, a courteous and proficient Michael Bentley walked in, with an eager demeanour to talk to me about Action Auto. He gently took his place on the swivelling chair as we went straight into the interview. What impact does your company have on the Zambian market, what have you observed on the Zambian market? “Action Auto is the only authorised distributor of brand new Isuzu, Chevrolet and Opel in Zambia. As far as the Zambian market is concerned we are up against a lot of the companies in the second hand market. New vehicles account for 10 percent of the country’s total imports of vehicle sales in the country. Since we launched the new Isuzu, we have found a huge increase in interest and need for the new Isuzu we have a lot of orders to the extent where the factory is struggling to keep up with the orders” He said with a chuckle. His eyes gleamed with pride as he explained. “I’m Zambian myself and this company is here for Zambians.

amed after the “Kalimba”, an African musical instrument is a reptile park 20 km north east of Lusaka called Kalimba farms. It nestles in the lush basin of the Ngwerere stream which makes it chilly during the summer.

few places in the world where you can see the rare and shy slender-nosed crocodile. From the time Kalimba opened its doors to the public, it has proven to be a very popular destination for school trips and group day trips raising the number of visitors to a minimum of 6500 every month. At Kalimba, not only do they offer reptile tours, there are plenty of other activities to fill time, or to entertain the kids. There’s a volleyball court, a trampoline, a pool table and table tennis facilities. The grounds are well laid out with many beautiful spots for picnics and relaxing - in the sun or under the shade. Ever sampled a ‘Croc’ burger? Well, here is where you can; popularly served piping hot, and irresistible to those with an adventurous palette, though they say it tastes just like chicken. I was one of the adventurous

Despite starting its’ operations in 1985, the park only opened its’ doors to the public in March 1995 in response to the requests to view the crocodiles that were only kept for their skin and meat (tail). Farm managing director, Bill Thomas, narrated that the farm was the first in the world to integrate crocodile farming with aquaculture; the natural waste from pigs which is used to improve the plankton in the water that makes up the normal diet of some of the Tilapia species of fish. The fish, known as Bream in Zambia, are then grown on the farm, making fishing one of the most popular activities on the farm. “Many people spend the whole day fishing here. Visitors can hire fishing tackle (rod, line, hooks and bait) and braai (BBQ) their catch for a picnic on the farm. But if they wish, they can take their catch home,” said Bill. Kalimba is also home to a vast range of indigenous snakes, tortoises and other reptiles. It is also one of a

Kalimba being a premier Lusaka attraction for everyone, whether in search of knowledge, fun, excitement or relaxation, it is worth the half hour drive from Lusaka town. It boasts beautiful scenery as you gaze upon the reptiles in their splendour, whilst the scent of the BBQ streams by your nostrils and the laughter of children as they play on the many activities puts a smile on your face, and the sun rays create a glistening twinkle to the waters were the crocodiles lay sunbathing their tough skin.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. -Martin Luther King, Jr.


SPOT THE DIFFERENCE

Rising talented singer Franciar, is looking beautiful as ever in this candid picture taken in a London underground train; but can you spot the 11 differences in the picture?

Job Interview Question

5

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:

2

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.

9

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car? Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again. The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: “I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams.” Never forget to “Think Outside of the Box.”

FASHION POLICE BEST DRESSED Most of Mampiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage outfits borderline questionable, however we are impressed with this more glam and lady like dress and heels, making her our best dressed

104 THE GLOBAL ZAMBIAN

June/July 2013

The outfit an artist wears on stage can either make or break a performance, TGZ Fashion Police went through the archives to see which Zambian artists have had the best, and worst stage outfits.

WE ALSO LIKED Sometimes less is more, and Shyman pulls the look off just right. Without too much going on, he manages to have an outfit that is simple yet effective for the stage

Dancing star Osward, outshined the artist he was dancing for at the ZMAs in this customised ensemble, giving him that rock star edge.

JK is normally seen in dapper suits, and so this thick winter, Eskimo jacket in a small venue is a big no no and we are not liking it all. Yes London is cold but the indoors are normally heated up, even the lady behind you is wearing a sleeveless dress. If that was not enough he is wearing a pair of glasses that look too small for his face. We hope not to see you here again JK, you can do better than this.

Danny was once one of the best dressed artist on stage, way back when; so seeing him in this ensemble at the ZMAs, is a shock, and the simple question is; what were you thinking? The entire outfit is completely dated. Yes fashion has gone oldskool but not in this sense. Danny boy do us proud and get a new wardrobe

Kay Figo was amongst our fashion faux pas in the last issue of TGZ, but instead of heading up she has, secured herself a spot in the worst stage performance outfits. Putting on every item from her wardrobe seems to be a habit. We are not sure what she is trying to recreate with this one as we see Marilyn Manson makeup, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and the list goes on. To Kay we kindly say please sack the stylist or get one.
