Minister of Tourism and Arts Hon. Charles Banda Banda shares a light Moment with Mr. Akashambatwa- Mbikusita Lewanika at the event.

Dr Akashambatwa Mbikusita Lewanika will deliver a public lecture at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre on Saturday, August 18th 2018 as part of activities to mark the 10th anniversary of the passing on of Dr Levy Mwanawasa, the third Republican President.

According to Dr Moses Banda, the Chairman of the Levy Patrick Mwanawasa Foundation, Dr Akashambatwa Mbikusita Lewanika will speak on the theme ‘An Attempt at Good Governance under the Mwanawasa Administration ‘.

Dr Caleb Fundanga, Linda Kasonde and Bishop Paul Mususu will be the discussants.

“In honour of this period The Levy Patrick Mwanawasa Foundation with the support of the Zambian Government has arranged a number of activities to remember, reminiscence about his life, hopes, ideals, experience, pitfalls, and indeed frustrations before, during and after his passing,” Dr Banda said.

He said the first event will be the inauguration of a photo exhibition by the Republican Vice President Madam Inonge Wina MP, on Friday the 17th August 2018.

Dr Banda said on display will be photos of Dr Mwanawasa which have been in archives of the family and the public information institutions.

He said this will be followed by an interaction of those who worked with the late President drawn from the public, private sector civil society organizations, the clergy and the mass media. 

“On 18 August 2018, Dr Akashambatwa Mbikusita Lewanika will deliver a public lecture at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre on the theme ‘An Attempt at Good Governance under the Mwanawasa Administration ‘. Dr Caleb Fundanga, Madam Linda Kasonde and Bishop Paul Mususu will be the discussants. And on the 19 August 2018, the anniversary of his burial, a Memorial Church Service to be graced by His Excellency Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu, the Republican President, will be held at the Anglican of the Holy Cross,” Dr Banda said.

He said the finale will be the laying of wreaths at the resting place of the late President at the Memorial Park.

“The Levy Patrick Mwanawasa Foundation is calling on all citizens and friends of the late President to find time in their own way to remember and reflect on how the ideals and the administration of the late President impacted on their lives,” he said.

  1. Go ahead Akashambatwa…maybe somebody may learn on what democracy means and perhaps stop stifling democracy through his abuse of the Public order act.

    • Never heard of this cat before. Who is he and how come someone as knowledgeable as I’m, don’t know him?

      Farcical if you ask me.

      Thanks

    • But Lozi’s, I will never forgive them. Look all those Akas are Presidential material, and right now we have Bo Inonge, she is also refusing to be president.
      Imagine if they had formed their own Barotseland 10 years ago, this time we could be talking of best kingdom after Bahrain.

  2. Aka is a good guy, it’s difficult to find pitfalls in his conduct of public affairs. However I don’t agree with his support for secessionists in Western Province. Secession is a misinterpretation of the BA64, I don’t his father, a great statesman himself would have supported that. LPM was equally a good guy but he wasn’t a Saint. The US$25M KCM deal still remains a blight on his administration. I hope I will be able to attend this function

  3. Nothing objective will come out of this discussion as traditionally you can’t criticise a dead person.

    • That is true, you cannot criticize or talk ill about a dead person. But again just showering praises is not being honest, there is no human being who is completely without blemish. I hope the discussion will have a measure of balance.

  6. Its funny how Zambians are so lazy to carry out basic research even with all the tools at their disposal (internet, etc). All the credit attributed to late Mwanawasa and Magande has nothing to do with their genius. The period between 2003 and 2007 saw unprecedented growth in the Global Economy to a point where the Western Economies started overheating hence investors started to look for other avenues to get decent returns. Assets in Emerging markets including Government Securities became an option hence the Kwacha appreciating because of the amount of foreign exchange that started coming through for investment.

      Mate, learn to give credit where credit is due. Western investors don’t just dump their money into high risky countries where there’s no rule of law and political instability. Governments of 3rd world countries still need to create conducive environment to attract investment. Above all, there needs to be fiscal discipline at home for the economy to thrive and be sustainable. Corruption, looting, plundering and overspending with no plans in place can’t produce any sustainable economic development no matter how much money is flowing into a country.

      Just look at what was happening with neighbouring Zimbabwe and Congo Kinshasa during that period you are quoting if you need any proof.

      The current ‘Chimbwi no plan’ ‘Chipante-pante govt you have will fail no matter what happens with…

    I wish I could be there (I mean the Aka lecture, not the Chagwa officiated memorial service). What a lost potential and wasted human intellectual property and capital that is Aka Mbikusita Lewanika and her sister Inonge Mbikusita Lewanika. In other progressive countries, these would be the type of people in charge of our country’s economic and political dispensation. Unfortunately we have crooks and plunderers in charge and they are matching us backwards to the stone age period… how cursed can a country be! Aka is knowledgeable and selfless and if only we could tap into his human mind and apply what he could offer as a country. For those who don’t know this man, he with the help of Arthur Wina and few others, singlehandedly founded the MMD and wrote the MMD manifesto before another…

    What a shame… some of us could easily contribute to moving this country forward if the environment was enabling… instead I’m here contributing to my adopted country who value what I have to offer.

    Cry my beloved country!

  9. President Levy Mwanawasa will be remembered for using corruption crusade to persecute his perceived enemies, enriching Fred Mmembe, Mutembo Nchito and their cartel using British aid money, selective justice by appointing specific Judges and Magistrates to handle cases against their cartel opponents, losing confidence in local justice system in preference for Judge Peter Smith from London, banking MMD party funds in his personal bank account, betraying and ungrateful to his friend Chiluba who nominated him to the throne, liquidating Zambia National Oil Company without proper accountability up to now, promoting bantu botatwe in public office and governance structures,allowing the First lady to rule the country from the bedroom………………………”
