CNN NODS ZAMBIA AS OPEN INTERNATIONAL TOURIST DESTINATION

Washington D.C. Thursday 22 April 2021 - Zambia has been listed among CNN’s international destinations that tourists planning vacations in 2021 should consider for their holiday travel.

It is an important listing as CNN Travel remains a leading authority in providing guidance and recommendations on top and safe tourist destinations worldwide.

The new listing published April 22 is particularly significant in that travel remains restricted because of the threat of COVID-19. It comes at a time that the West enters the peak holiday and travel season, and travelers are considering international journeys in light of increased COVID-19 vaccinations.

CNN reported that despite 142million COVID-19 cases worldwide and the pandemic still far from over, “many of us are now itching to make plans to travel or to reunite with loved ones”.

In its curated list, CNN Travel omitted certain open countries “if they had very limited numbers of international travelers before the pandemic; have ongoing or recent armed conflicts, terrorism or rampant crime and unrest; or have entry requirements so extensive and complicated that they put the country out of reach of most travelers.”

The listing can be a boost for Zambia which has capacity to deal with COVID-19 testing requirements of the US government and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all travelers.

Zambia has managed to maintain relatively low COVID-19 cases and fatalities due to an a multisectoral response, led at the Presidential level. Zambia has experience approximately 91,000 cases, out of a population of about 17 million. Of all the cases, 98% have recovered, and case fatality has been about 7.5 per 100,000. Added to the country’s excellent handling of COVID-19 cases, Government has also rolled out a robust vaccine program in one of Africa’s top tourist destinations that also prides itself for its peace, democracy, a friendly people and unparalleled tourism spots.

Other countries listed include Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Barbados, Belize, Rwanda, Botswana, Dubai in the UAE, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iceland, The Maldives, Morocco, Seychelles, among others.
CNN Travel noted that health risks remained, and it was up to individuals to decide whether to travel to any destination or not. It also recommended seeking CDC guidance for American holidaymakers who wished to have expert input into their travel decision.

“Keep in mind that not only must you pay attention to the guidance regarding countries you wish to visit or transit through, your home country may have Covid testing or mandatory hotel quarantine you'll have to undertake on your return. What follows is an alphabetical list of countries and territories where it's still possible for most international passport holders to go for a vacation: Zambia and others…”

NURTURE LONG STANDING ZAMBIA-US TIES AMBASSADOR KAPAMBWE PRODS TOP US VARSITY STUDENTS

Washington D.C. Thursday April 22, 2021 – Zambia’s stable democracy, an emerging free economy and warm friendly people rank it as a choice destination for investment and tourism which American investors and the new generation of US academics must embrace, Zambia’s Ambassador to the United States of America, H.E. Mr. Lazarous Kapambwe has said.

Ambassador Kapambwe told one of the United States’ leading University forums that the present and next generation of investors seeking better returns on their investment must look no further than Zambia.

“Zambia is open for you. You are welcome anytime. We will be looking forward to welcoming you,” said Ambassador Kapambwe.

Impressing upon scholars the beauty of Zambia at the University of Virginia’s Centre for Politics and Global Perspectives on Democracy, Ambassador Kapambwe said the long-standing warm relationship between Zambia and the United States was an added incentive to encourage Americans to seek to learn more about Zambia.

He was the guest speaker during the University’s Ambassador Series Lecture Wednesday evening.

“For a leading institution as the UVA to take interest in the affairs of Zambia and engage in such a forum is one more clear demonstration of the warm relations that Zambia and the United States of America continue to enjoy.”

“Therefore, if there is any country that you wish to go to and enjoy a holiday, if there is a land one would wish to invest and do business, if there is a country one would wish to settle peacefully and even retire, that country is Zambia,” Ambassador Kapambwe said.

He urged the American scholars to use interactions like the Ambassador’s Series as motivation to learn more about the relationship between the two countries and explore initiatives that would further enhance those ties.

In his exposition, Ambassador showcased the stable multi-party democracy Zambia enjoyed and zeroed in on the free and fair electoral process, abundant natural resources, the country’s harmony and a hard-working peace-loving population.

Ambassador Kapambwe detailed the long relationship between Zambia and the United States and the roles the two countries played in standing shoulder to shoulder to help liberate the rest of Southern Africa.

He also discussed the significance of the shared common values of the two peoples including human rights, importance of cyber security, democracy, trade and Washington’s support to Lusaka across various sectors including health and education.

Ambassador Kapambwe commended the UVA for the interactive forum. He urged the students to take interest in researching and to exploring opportunities found in Zambia saying that Lusaka was hardly in American or international news because of the peace and tranquility the country enjoyed.

Good development news, as Zambia had, rarely made headlines in the west which tended to focus on “bad news or conflict”.

University of Virginia Center for Politics, Director of Global Initiatives Daman Irby applauded Ambassador Kapambwe’s presentation and noted what he described as the great partnership between Zambia and the United States.

CELEBRATING ZAMBIAN WOMEN IN THE UNITED STATES.

Every year in March, Zambia joins the world in recognizing International Women’s Day by celebrating the leadership, strength, and courage of women and girls. In the United States, March is also the annual declared Women’s History Month. In this year’s commemoration, we showcase some of the Zambian women living & working in the United States and making a change both in the USA and Zambia.

In this article, we feature PRISCAR CHANDA ZULU – “A heart of gold that transcended expectations”.

She is an Accountant. She is a women’s development activist, one who has chosen to devote herself to activities and programs that advance the empowerment of women and girls in Zambia, particularly in rural districts.
She is the Vice President for the Association of Zambians in Atlanta (AZA). She is also an affiliate member of the African Sisters for Information, Knowledge and Empowerment; an organization that strives to empower women of African descent. That, in brief, is Priscar Chanda Zulu!

Born and bred in Zambia’s Tourist Capital, Priscar attended Linda Secondary School in Livingstone and later moved to Samfya in Luapula where she completed her grade 12. Upon completion of her secondary school, she ventured into accountancy and in 2002, completed her studies as an Accounting Technician (AAT). After her accounting studies, she moved from Zambia to Atlanta, Georgia in the United States of America. She continued with her studies in the US and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Business at Life University before doing her master’s degree in Finance at Strayer University, also in the United States.

Intimating on what gives her the drive to reach for higher heights in all she does, Priscar says that she draws her inspiration from her Mother whom she described as the most humble, selfless and the greatest teacher she has ever encountered.
“My late mother has been the greatest influence in my life. She had such a big heart and from literally nothing she helped and touched so many people's lives. She was always available when there was a need and she made giving and helping others seem so easy and enjoyable. She made me realize that helping the needy gives fulfilment. I think one would never really know the meaning of living if you have not helped someone in need. I try to live like that every single day.”

Motivated by the desire to help others advance and make communities better places for all, Priscar, together with other Zambian women in the US came together in 2015 to form an association called “Zambian Women in Atlanta”. The association seeks to empower and help Zambian women living in the United States and women in Zambia in areas of Health, Education, Wellness and Business. The association has placed a high premium on education for girls. Zambian Women in Atlanta has since been offering full scholarships to orphaned girls and women to pursue education through their campaign dubbed “Sponsor a Child Program”.
Through education, the association hopes to help hundreds of girls aspire for opportunities that would give them the prospect of advancing in life as their male counterparts.

Her message to the world is that women are homogenous to men and should be encouraged to pursue any career of their choice.
“Given an opportunity a woman can be as great as a man in any undertaking.”
Reflecting on the 2021 Women’s Day theme, “Woman in leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a COVID-19 World” Priscar said; “The lesson is simple. God blessed us so we can be a blessing to others. It is as simple as just finding time to be of service to humanity. I know everyone is busy but when God places something in your heart, He will always make a way. We all have a role to play in making this world a better place and we all have something to give. Empowerment through Education is key to levelling the playing field for us as women.”

“Rise above the challenge and demand a seat not because you are a woman but because you can, and if you can you will.”
