Henson accessorised with gleaming accessories, sporting Kimberly McDonald earrings set with Gemfields Zambian emeralds and a gold enamel chain Falabella clutch. And her sleek lob haircut and soft makeup add to her sophisticated look.”

  1. Good but sad reading. We endowed with rich natural resources but as a country we don’t benefit much from these depleting God-given resources.

  2. Who cares! that doesnt help the world much .those things are worthless, we are the ones that give them value you cant take them with you when you die.

  3. strange ah, we have the world’s leading emerald mine in the world and as a nation of 15 plu million people we only have 25 percent in it.

  4. What is sad are our policies.
    I once went to Dubai and when I inquired how a former desert Emirates had been transformed in less than 40 years I learnt that the policy makers decided that for the country to make meaningful development from their wasting oil assets foreign investors would have to reinvest the bulk of their proceeds in the country.
    Not what is happening in Zambia where we have to borrow bonds for infrastructure development. This is not a. PF problem but a national problem which we created when we were selling the mines.
    We need to change the current day light robbery as a nation.

    • Today foreign investors can repatriate all the foreign currency from their earnings and manipulate the local currency for their benefit.
      What do we own as ZAMBIANS?
      Only crumbs!!!

  5. Dubai is highly concentrated in foreign investment.
    Find out what policies they have employed to develop the country.
    The issue in NOT foreign investment. The is issue is what policies have you put in place to make sure there is mutual benefit for both Zambia and foreign investors.
    If you expect investors not to take their profits to wherever they want them then you are wrong!!!!
