Sending money to Zambia shouldn’t be a horror story

ZASA Magazine - Article Banner_June Article

In this month’s edition, we share a few stories about the dangers of sending money through channels you cannot trust – some are funny but some can very easily result in heartache.

A post was shared in one of the ZASA WhatsApp groups that sparked some interesting yet revealing views of the issues Zambians face in the Diaspora. The post has been doing the rounds on social media and is by Motivational Speaker Mubita Nawa calling for Zambians to “come back home”.

In response to the post, someone suggested buying and building property back in Zambia and this led to a very interesting exchange about issues of sending money to Zambia. One person shared how a friend living abroad was sending money home only to return and find her house was still at slab level.

Please read the article in Issue 21 (June) for the stories… Most memorable quote “asanga mambala alilwala ale onta imbaula, guy afilwa noku pinda…”

ZASA Magazine - Issue 21 - June 2017_Content

There is just too much for us to summarise in a paragraph but let’s give this a try… Chiawa Management Area on the Lower Zambezi is host to the cozy Kasaka River lodge – read about it in this issue; we talk about trust when it comes to matters concerning money; we also held out on the release to catch the high profile Newcastle 1st Anniversary Dinner that took place this past weekend (performing artist was none other than K’million and the guests of honour included the Zambian High Commissioner and Amajuba District Mayor) – we have video and more pictures coming shortly; Victoria interviews the accomplished Precious Mwamulima (founder of Chitemwuko); and Steven unpacks depression as we continue the #GQ4GH series. And no, that’s not all…

As always – get yourself something nice to sip on and enjoy 🙂
