Because I can, and did. Ooooo the power.

I was there... in 1972 a newsreader on the ZTV evening news declared to both viewers that the 'presidential erection' was hotting up.

As there was only one candidate - KK, the outcome wasn't much of a surprise to a waiting and expectant nation. Which is more than can be said for the poor newsreader who's career took the second definition - an uncontrolled slide downhill. Rumour had it that he was given gardening leave - as fertiliser.

I like that factoid - why bother having an election with only one candidate? What if everybody had abstained?

It's awful when you can't get your tounge round your are's.

Zambia has just become subject of what well may be viewed as the worst "Press leak" ever.

The President Rupiah Banda was holding a news conference when a monkey urinated on him. Mr. Banda laughed it off saying: "Perhaps these are blessings."
