African Media Barometer – Zambia 2009 Report

African Media Barometer – Zambia 2009 Report

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung’s Southern African Media Project took the initiative together with the Media Institute for Southern Africa (MISA) to start the African Media Barometer in April 2005, a self-assessment exercise done by Africans themselves according to home grown criteria. The project is the first in-depth and comprehensive description and measurement system for national media environments on the African continent. The benchmarks are to a large extend taken from the African Commission for Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) “Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression in Africa”, adopted in 2002. This declaration was largely inspired by the ground-breaking conferences in Windhoek/Namibia on the “Independence of the Media” (1992) and the “African Charter on Broadcasting” (2001). By the end of 2006, 19 sub-Saharan countries were covered by the AMB. In 2007 those countries which started the exercise in 2005 were revisited. This report focusses on Zambia.

Zambia: A diary from a gender activist during Sixteen Days

It’s five am, the day before the International Day of No Violence Against Women that kicks off the Sixteen days of Activism campaign. My alarm rings barely six hours after I arrive in the Zambian capital and I am in a panic as I will be speaking in a few hours about why we need better ways to measure gender violence.

Activism taking root in Zambia’s remote villages

Activism taking root in Zambia’s remote villages

It is 4 December 2011 around 4:30pm as I arrive in Katete district in Zambia’s Eastern Province as part of Gender Links Sixteen Days of Activism activities in rural communities. As I am disembarking from the bus, my phone rings. My colleague Faides is on the line, calling to update me on how the Sixteen Days Campaign went on Kafue district that day. Somehow, I get the feeling that she was just checking on me after six hour long drive from Lusaka. So, I tell her I am okay.

Every time I heard a woman my age talk about sexual harassment of any sort, I thought they were weak, even gullible. Until it happened to me.

Zambia: Men make great care workers too

Zambia: Men make great care workers too

In 2002, my first born son was diagnosed with HIV, and by that time he was staying with his grandmother. He phoned and told me he was not feeling well and I agreed that he should come to Lusaka. At the time he got sick he was staying in a village where there was no clinic. He came to Lusaka and stayed with me. He complained of general body pains. I looked at him: he was very sick, and there was a need for him to be taken to the hospital. I took him to the nearest health centre, 7km from my house.
