‘One Zambia, One Nation’ relived

With UNCLE 'D' from The Times of Zambia

THE ‘One Zambia ,One Nation’ rallying cry was accurate in every sense and everyone lived by it.

When building a new country that was known as Zambia, the founders made sure that people were firmly united across tribe, race, colour and creed.

It was a Zambia that was proudly one. The citizenry worked to make the country a model on the African continent.

The ‘One Zambia One Nation’ motto solidly held and was greatly appreciated by all. 

People lived true to the slogan that was so popular that it kept everything moving so well.

Even in neighbourhoods, people were so united by the slogan that they committed themselves fully to the aspirations of Zambia.

Powerful voices of the time also echoed the ambition of Zambia through the slogan.

Zambia was indeed in a hurry to develop and the slogan fittingly conveyed the message that proudly reflected the people’s aspirations.

So overwhelming was the sense of belonging to the ‘One Zambia One Nation’ catch-phrase that all Zambians yearned to be identified by it.

The slogan made everyone proud as they went about their daily chores without knowing who was the next door neigbour or where they came from.

Beautiful was the period because it opened up people to interact freely and openly.

Nothing was held back as everyone, so long as they were Zambian, candidly took their rightful role in whatever activity as in ‘One Zambia One Nation.’

The vision of the founders was truly being lived by everyone and was evidenced in the forthrightness of the people when it came to handling challenges of the time.

Left to manage itself at Independence, Zambia had something going from the word go and the ‘One Zambia One Nation’ slogan consolidated the citizenry marching together as one.

At home and abroad, Zambians stood proud, enjoying themselves at every turn with dignity.

The region looked to Zambians as torch bearers when it came to questions of a people that were proud and free.

Strangely, it was like everyone knew everybody. Zambians indeed distinguished themselves accurately and could easily identify each other without much ado.

Other people who came from neighbbouring countries, although respected and welcomed, were accorded a reception befitting their status.

What really mattered mostly was the sense of patriotism and togetherness that Zambians had.

Founders proudly propagated the ‘One Zambia, One Nation’ slogan that stirred the people to move on strongly and united.

Save the Serengeti 
It’s being described as the greatest threat in the Serengeti's history — a commercial highway in the direct path of ancient wildlife migration routes.

The government of Tanzania recently approved a major commercial truck corridor across the Serengeti National Park. 

Conservation organizations have warned that this highway would be devastating.  You can help. Click image "Support the Southern Route."

“Our fathers fought bravely. But do you know the biggest weapon unleashed by the enemy against them? 
It was not the Maxim gun. It was division among them. 
Why? Because a people united in faith are stronger than the bomb.”

The Enduring Inspiration of Robert Kennedy's "Ripples of Hope."

In the summer of 1966, my parents, Robert and Ethel Kennedy, traveled to South Africa at the invitation of Ian Robertson, President of the National Union of South African Students, or NUSAS. 

NUSAS, which opposed the racist Apartheid regime -then in power in South Africa- asked my father to deliver the keynote address at the annual Day of Reaffirmation of Academic and Human Freedom at the University of Cape Town.
