‘Zambia’s peace ke to foreign direct investment’

ZAMBIA has better prospects of attracting millions of dollars in foreign direct investment compared to other countries in the southern region due to its tested history of peace and political stability, the German-African Business Association CEO and director general Christoph Kannengiersser has said.

Mr Kannengiesser said German investors feel that Zambia was ripe for investment in agriculture, energy and tourism.

“Our organisation will ensure it drives traffic towards those areas that are profitable for both Zambia and German investors, owing to the fact that Zambia is a good destination.”

Mr Kannengiesser said this when he paid a courtesy on Zambia’s ambassador to Germany Anthony Mukwita.

He said what Zambia had to do now was to continue using its good name abroad to woo investors to pump money into the southern African country.

“You can count on your good international reputation as a peaceful and politically stable country to help boost investment which in turn will help create jobs and reduce poverty,” Mr Kannengiesser said.

The German-African Business Association is a national association established more than 50 years ago and boasts of a total membership of some 550 companies across various sectors some of which are already operating in Africa and/or are carrying out feasibility studies to invest in countries such as Zambia.

And Mr Mukwita thanked the Kannengiesser-led entourage and assured that investing in Zambia was advantageous for any German company because of its ‘land linked’ nature and the fact that it belongs to a family of more than 300 million citizens of SADC and COMESA.

This is one of the several times investment organisations have tapped Zambia as a preferred country of investment.

Mr Mukwita said with other countries in the region suffering devastating effects of climate change, Zambia also stood a better chance to quickly diversify and improve the agriculture sector.

“The sector attracting and begging for investment right now is energy and agriculture in our view. And Zambia has demonstrated through two last bumper harvests that it could be a regional grain basket,” Mr Mukwita said.

WIVES: HOW YOU CAN WIN YOUR HUSBAND´S HEART

By Pastor Jasper Mutale

THE wife needs to understand the role of divine submission. Let us look at the relationship of the Father and Jesus the Son so we can understand this better. We must clearly understand God’s principles of authority and submission in order to understand the roles of wife and husband. God instituted the principle of submission. This principle was put there by God in the beginning.
Phil. 2:5 “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus Who, being in very nature of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant.” The wife submits to her husbands SERVANTHOOD (his ministry). Peter, in embarrassment, did not want Jesus to serve him. He was refusing to submit to the ministry of Jesus. It is this ministry that elevates the person submitting to it. This is how a wife, in her submission, is made great by her husband: She shows honour and respect to his calling as a husband. She allows him to be provider, protector and preserver. She never challenges his headship. You may say pastor Jasper what do you really mean by all these? All our answers are found in the word of God, Jesus is our example and model .Look at these verse now.
Jesus did nothing of His own accord. He only did what the Father did (Read John 5:19-30). He was submissive to the Father out of a love so strong that He said: “Not My will, but Thine be done.” It was His heart’s delight to please the Father. He was EQUAL YET SUBMISSIVE. This submission was not limited to Jesus’ days on earth. It is part of the eternal relationship between Father and Son. There is no inferiority here. He is also God.
1 Cor. 11:3 “Now I want you to realise that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” Note Jesus’ submission to Father God.
Let us read again Eph. 5:22-24 “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, His body, of which He is the Saviour. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.” Both husband and wife are EQUAL, but the wife has a different role to the husband. It does not mean that the wife is inferior. Woman was made in the image of God (Gen. 1:27)
Just as the man is made in the image of God, so too is the woman. Both are completely equal before God in creation.
While the wife is completely equal to the man, she is not exactly the same as the man.
God created Eve to be Adam’s friend. She was to be a helper, but not a servant.
If a man in any way mistreats a woman because he thinks she is less than he, then he is in great error. He has committed the sin of treating someone created in the image of God as something lower than himself.
Therefore the word SUBMIT in Eph. 5:22-24 does not refer to someone of a lower class such as a slave or servant. Submit refers (in Greek) to a “VOLUNTARY CHOICE” on the part of an equal. It refers to AN ATTITUDE OF THE HEART. This is opposite to the idea of slavery. This submitting is out of love and obedience to God. It is God’s order of Headship as Christ is Head of the church. To say that women are inferior, is to say Christ is inferior to the Father which is not true. Christ is subject to the Father and, in the same way, the wife is subject to her husband. The concepts of authority and submission have become perverted in so many ways by worldly thinking.
God has made a SOVEREIGN DECISION regarding headship and subordination. We serve where God calls us to serve. Remember we are talking about functional authority and submission of those who are mutually equal. It is all VOLUNTARY OBEDIENCE to the Word of God. Women are to be respectful and dedicated to the Lord and His Word. A wife’s submission to her husband will always be an outstanding distinction of a GODLY WIFE. We as wives should accept this and love our husbands as they are instructed to love their wives too. God is so wise. A virtuous woman glorifies her husband, while the husband glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ.
The REBELLION of a wife against her husband is exactly the same spirit as that of a disobedient Church (body of Christ) against the Head which is Christ. The wife should voluntarily accept her husband’s authority as unto the Lord, even as Christ accepts the authority of the Father. There is a great truth that a wife who in faith and patience submits to her husband’s authority, moves God to make the husband a responsible, caring head. This can be a big test for a woman, but God honours the wife who submits to her husband out of obedience to Him.
There is also a QUALIFIED SUBMISSION referred to in Eph. 5:22-24: “Submit to your OWN husbands.” Women are not called to submit to all men in general. Their submission is SPECIFIED. Wives are to submit only to their own husbands – IN EVERYTHING. In other words, the OBJECT of the wife’s submission is her OWN HUSBAND and not just any man. This is an intimate possessive submission, because the wife is the WEAKER VESSEL. 1 Pet. 3:7 “Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner (vessel) and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.”
As the weaker vessel, the wife is the one who is to be provided for, cared for, protected and preserved. God did not design a woman to fend for herself and rely on her own resources.
Furthermore, SUBMISSION IS PROPER. Col. 3:18 “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.” FITTING means “seemly or proper” and is used of things legally binding. Therefore it goes against basic principles for a wife to be independent. The unbelieving or disobedient husband Now you may ask, “what if my husband is not a believer? “When you read 1 pet. 3:1-6 the Bible tells us Verse by verse, Look at Verse 1: submit anyway even if your husband is not a believer. Look very closer at this verse below and see what it is saying to you
An attitude of submission, of awe, reverence and respect for your husband will win your husband. Sadly, many Christian women despise their unbelieving or carnal husbands. They develop a holier-than-thou attitude. They give them the impression that God Himself has rejected them and so the husband stays away and make her life more miserable. Verse 2: says win him by your behaviour. “Chaste conduct” means “pure motives” or “purity and reverence “ (NIV). “Fear” means “awe, reverence and respect, where there is humility and a lack of pride.
We live in a world where the emphasis is on the outward appearance and possessions. Many wives wear their husbands down by always demanding things. If they cannot get what they want, they throw tantrums or sulk. Eventually even her outward beauty looks ugly to him. According to Prov 21:19 it is “Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife.” Has this wife ever wondered why her husband is never at home?
It is not that the outward is wrong, but if that is what we place our heart and desire on, it is wrong. There must be a pre-occupation with inner values. Concentrate on developing the spiritual things rather than the things of the world. Certain things happen when you concentrate on the inner man, namely a MEEK or GENTLE and QUIET SPIRIT. This means that the woman with a gentle and still or peaceful attitude is what pleases the Lord. She is not someone who has to prove herself – she is contented with her role as a woman. This attitude is what the Word of God calls GODLINESS. The opposite of this is a nagging and screaming woman. A godly woman is contented and satisfied and secure. The point is that wives take a position of submission. In this way the husband glorifies the Lord.

Can a woman propose to a man?

 

By ANNIE ZULU

ZAMBIANS have expressed divergent views on whether a woman should propose marriage to her male partner.

Some, who spoke to the Daily Nation in separate interviews said it was not advisable to do so.

A Lusaka-based marriage counsellor, Mercy Muchanga said there was nothing wrong with women proposing.

“Women know who they are comfortable with to get married to so if a woman feels the guy is dragging his feet, I recommend she suggests marriage to him.

“She can simply ask him where the relationship is headed. She should give the man hints that show she is interested and create an atmosphere for him to pop the question if he is serious and if he still doesn’t, she should take the hint and move on,” she said.

Ms Muchanga, however, added that she would not advise women to make the final proposal.

“When a woman proposes by officially popping the question and getting him engaged, she gives him room to take her for granted and most men do take advantage of it.

“Men also don’t support the idea much because it makes them lose their voice of authority or leadership in the relationship which makes it boring,” she said.

Mr Davis Daka, a theological student, noted that the Bible didn’t support women proposing to men.

“The Bible emphasises on men providing, instructing, leading and protecting their wives and family, so if a woman proposes, she is saying she wants to take up the man’s role.

“The Bible says wives should submit to their husbands as the husband is the head of the house as Christ is of the church and this submission refers to women following the lead of their husbands.

“It also says that he who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord, not she who finds a husband.

“Women proposing to men might lead to some successful marriages, but in most cases the reverse is the case,” he said.

Mr Abdul Ibrahim, a Muslim, said it wasn’t wrong for women to propose marriage as far as it was done according to the Islamic rules.

“If a Muslim woman is interested in a man who is worthy of her, she is free to honourably approach him with a marriage proposal.

“This may be seen as improper to some Muslims from different cultures but it is a cultural attitude, not an Islamic one.

“She could do it indirectly by asking her parents to ask his parents or by requesting the assistance of a relative or mutual friend.

“If she decides to go herself, she has to abide by Islamic laws such as asking him for a meeting in public along with a friend or relative to act as a chaperone.

“She has to be mindful of her appearance and body language too,” he said.

Ms Trinah Kabwe, who recently got married, said that she doesn’t like the idea of women proposing to men.

“A woman is to be won like a prize, not to be given out like a souvenir, so the best she can do is to give the man signs that she is interested in getting married to him.

“By the second year of dating my husband, I had shown him marriage signs even by spending a couple of weeks at his place every now and then.

“At one point I asked him if we were cousins that were sharing a house and he responded no, two weeks later he proposed to me. Women just have to communicate indirectly,” Ms Kabwe said.

Mr Moses Hakalima, a bus driver, said he saw nothing wrong with women proposing as long as the women were ready to take up the responsibilities of the men.

“Proposing marriage means the person asking is willing to cater for the prospective partner and be responsible for the person.

“Therefore, if she wants to propose to a man, she should be willing to bear the marital responsibilities, which includes paying the groom price.

“If the man is willing to be a househusband while she works to finance the home she shouldn’t complain because she asked for it by proposing,” he said.

Mr John Bwalya, a Relationship Coach said there was nothing wrong with the proposal and that he viewed such women as bold individuals who were goal getters.

“I respect women who decide to do such because, it displays self-confidence and shows the woman is a goal getter, but that at times can be scary to some men. “I have always imagined how I would propose to a girl but I’m scared of her saying no, therefore I will prefer to be proposed to.

“Our culture believes that the woman is made to look cheap if she does that, but if a woman is sure that she has found her man, she should grab him,” Mr Bwalya said.

PRIME TV JOURNALIST WEDS

…as he calls on youths to wait for the right time

By Siachitoba Innocent

 

Marriage before the age of 18 is a reality for many young women in Zambia, particularly in rural areas. In many parts of developing nations parents encourage marriage of their daughters while they are still children hoping that such arrangements will benefit them both financially and socially, while also relieving financial burdens on the family.

In actuality, child marriage is a violation of human rights, compromising the physical development of girls and often resulting in early pregnancy and social isolation, with little education and poor vocational training reinforcing the gendered nature of poverty.

However, there are still young Zambian youths who think getting married before the age of 18 may not only jeopardize one’s physical, moral, emotional or spiritual development but also affect one’s academic progress. The case in point is the newlyweds Cephas Chitalu and Taonga Khondowe who tied a knot on Sunday, June 4.

Here is the verbatim:

Who is Mr Chitalu?  I am the second born in a family of five. I live a quiet life and I am more reserved, good listener and always reach a helping hand to the needy.

What is your current academic qualifications?  I hold a diploma in Journalism from Zamcom currently working for Prime Television Zambia

What are your hobbies?  I enjoy doing five things. (1) I like travelling to new places and discovering new things. (2) I love making new friends (3) I love paying attention to current affairs (4) Listening to music particularly gospel and kalimdula (5) As a youth, I also love camping and hiking

Mr. Chitalu, do you go to church?  Yes, I do. Actually I am a baptised member of Kamwala Seventh-day Adventist Church currently serving as a deacon. Apart from that, I am also a member of the youth movement serving as a Master Guide.

You just said a Master Guide, what does it mean? A Master Guide is a trained leader of the youth  particularly those aged below 15.

 What’s your favourite quote? My favourite quotation is found in Galatians 6:10 and it says ‘Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone-especially to those in the family of faith’’.(NLT)

How did you meet Taonga?  The first time to meet Taonga was at church. We became close friends whilst enjoying youth programs like singing, drills, hiking, singing and poems.

How long did you date Taonga before tying a knot with her? We dated for over five years and on December 25,2016  I made surprise engagement party and I couldn’t hold it back. I had to put a ring on her finger. It was a happy moment for both of us.

But, who is Taonga Khondowe?  Taonga is a third born in a family of four and currently working for MTN Zambia under ISON as a customer care Executive. She holds a diploma in Business Administration from National Institute of Public Administration (NIPA). As I said earlier, she is also a dedicated member of Kamwala Seventh-day Adventist Church.

What her hobbies?  Taonga loves cooking, making new friends, reading and listening to music. I am a social and shy person living quite.

What’s her favourite quotation? A long journey starts with a single step. Finally, we are now Mr.and Mrs Chitalu.

How is your new life in marriage, Mr. Chitalu? The new life in marriage, ok, so far so good and I count it all joy and I thank God for giving me a life partner who is so loving, caring, down to earth and above all cute. Truly speaking, I thank God for our marriage.

What about you Mrs. Chitalu , how is your new life in marriage?  I just thank God Almighty for giving me a God fearing man as a husband. He is truly a blessing to me and I can’t imagine my life without him. I love him without reservations and I will love him until forever.

Mr. Chitalu ,what advice do you have for your fellow youths? My advice to the youth is that they should remember to seek God’s guidance and be faithful to him. He is a just and loving Lord who blesses His own without reserve. Youths should not rush into getting married because early marriages lead also to some socio-economic repercussions. They should respect their bodies for they are the temples of God. Its’ very important to pray when making such life time decisions.

Do you have anything to say? Surely, first and foremost, I would like to  thank both of our families for the support they rendered from the time we had ‘ chilanga mulilo’, kitchen party and wedding. Secondly, I also thank our special committee, church members from Kamwala SDA, Prime TV crew, my wife’s workmates, our matrons Sr Lundu and Sr Seule and their families. Thirdly, I wish to thank Pastor Nelson Simweemba who is more like our daddy for the wonderful three months of counselling. It has been a long journey with him. Our marriage will be a little heaven on earth because of his lessons. Showers of blessings to the family and Shepardess Simweemba.

Post property auction on today

 

THE auctioning of the property belonging to the Post Newspapers Limited in liquidation is going ahead and people must disregard media speculations alleging that it has been postponed, liquidator Lewis Mosho has clarified.

Reacting to reports suggesting that the exercise had been postponed to a later date owing to unforeseen circumstances, Mr. Mosho said those peddling lies about the exercise just wanted to discourage people from buying the properties.

He said he expected a number of people at today’s event as multitudes had been flocking to view the property to see and identify what they could bid for.

He has encouraged those who may have been lied to that the auction had been postponed to disregard such reports as they were mere fabrications.

“The auction is going ahead. Some individuals are just trying to discourage people from coming to buy otherwise people have been passing through to see which property they could purchase. Multitudes are viewing the property. Multitudes have been trekking to view the post Newspaper property and there is no going back,

“As a liquidator, I can confirm that the auction is going ahead. There is no postponement. As you are aware that media equipment is on high demand, we expect a lot of people here tomorrow (today). People should not be discouraged by these sentiments because they are not true. They are just aimed at discouraging them from buying these properties,” Mr. Mosho said.

We’re ready for Xmas rush, say bankers

By Annie Zulu

ALL banks have sufficient funds to deal with the demand associated with the festive season, Bankers Association of Zambia chief executive officer Leonard Mwanza has said. And Mr Mwanza has advised people not to overspend during the festive season but save for things that were critical to their lives. There is anxiety among bank users that the banks might run out of cash during the festive season, following the high demand for money during this period. A check at some Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) in the Central Business District by the Daily Nation found long queues, as people jostled to withdraw money in preparation for the holidays. One of the bank users Lewis Mwewa told the Daily Nation that he was withdrawing money in advance because the banks usually run out of cash during the festive season. “Last year, I had challenges in accessing my money during the festive season. I had to wait for two days to get my money which was very inconveniencing on my part because I wanted to use the money for my holiday. So this time around I have decided to withdraw the money in advance,” he said. But Mr Mwanza has urged depositors not to panic as there would be no cash flow problems during the festive season. He said the banks were fully prepared for the increase in volumes and transactions that came with the holidays. “The money we have is enough to cater for the festive season and there should be no fear at all. We know that there will be traffic at the banks during this period because people want to spend a little bit, but that shouldn’t be the basis for alarm that things are bad. “The banks are fully prepared to handle the pressure that will come in as we go towards holidays. It is normal that during this period people tend to withdraw more, but there is no linkage that banks are expected to run out of cash. Those are just unfounded rumours. Liquidity on the market has improved, so we don’t expect any challenges,” he said. Mr Mwanza also urged people to avoid withdrawing a lot of money and overspending just for the festive season, saying that there was life beyond this period. He said there was need for people to plan and spend reasonably to avoid frustrations of not having money at the beginning of the year. “This is the time that people should be serving money and keeping it safe. It’s time that we thought about more important things than just spending for festive season. We need people to serve and keep resources for things that are critical to their lives. ‘‘This season comes and goes, people must spend reasonably and avoid carrying too much cash; this is also a dangerous period, thieves are also active,” Mr. Mwanza said.
