The Japanese Embassy has handed over a television program to MUVI Television entitled “Hanako and Anne”.
Speaking at the handover ceremony today at the Japanese embassy in Lusaka, Japanese Ambassador to Zambia Hidenobu Sobashima explained that “Hanako and Anne” is a story of the life of a remarkable woman who, despite coming from a very humble background was able to overcome all obstacles that she faced in her quest to accomplish her goals.
Mr. Sobashima further explained that the resilient woman ultimately became a famous translator.
He said both the Japanese and Zambian governments are taking measures for women to become more active in various fields in society.
