Dear Zambia…A Thank-you note

Dear Zambia

Thank you for reminding the world that not all elections in Africa are accompanied by war, torture, vote-rigging, tribal violence and corruption.

No rebels, no drones, no mass violence, no sexual violence, no forced displacement, no repression, no media blackout, no military intervention, – ah, you’re such an inspiration.

That is all.

“Stand and sing of Zambia, proud and free,
Land of work and joy in unity,
Victors in the struggle for the right,
We have won freedom’s fight.
All one, strong and free.”
