#BOOK #ALERT Conversations with Memorable Personalities

Published

on

By

#Mwebantu, From stuff fit for a spy movie to stories that would fill gossip columns, like why Dora Siliya got divorced by her husband, and why Sikota Wina was popular with the ladies; to why the spy chief, Xavier Chungu, was being spied on.

And what really led to the collapse of Fred M’membe’s empire – The Post?

In his soon to be published book, Conversations with Memorable Personalities, journalist and author, Amos Malupenga, takes readers on an epic journey, retracing his own tracks in his illustrious career that spanned over 15 years, mainly at the helm of the country’s foremost private newspaper, The Post.

The result is a riveting book that covers an array of topics, from espionage to bedroom secrets.

Conversations with Memorable Personalities is divided into three parts, with the first being the author’s memoirs as a journalist, and gives a glimpse into the political and business empire that was The Post, including a special relationship between the newspaper and Michael Sata.

The book vividly captures a watershed moment for both the country and The Post after Michael Sata was elected as President in 2011, and what went on behind the scenes.

“The president [Sata] phoned me a while ago asking for a name,” Fred started. “He wants to appoint a press aide so he has asked for our input urgently. He wants this name at the end of the day or latest tomorrow,” reads an excerpt from Chapter 5.

In the same chapter, the author also talks about his own fallout with Fred M’membe after accepting a job from President Sata, and a spat between the new President and Fred M’membe.

The second part of the book is a collection of interviews – conversations as the author would like to put it – with a number of eminent persons; conversations that turned the subjects inside out, revealing some of their well-kept secrets and, sometimes, turned them the wrong side up.

This part features 44 interviews with some of the who-is-who of the country’s social and political life – from men who would be President, to rogues who would attempt to overthrow governments; plus a conversation with Graca Machel, who was married to Nelson Mandela.

The third part of the book discusses democracy and theocracy, and the author concludes that there’s no perfect human government.

Conversations with Memorable Personalities is the second book by the same author. His first book Levy Patrick Mwanawasa: An Incentive for Posterity was published in 2009.

How to Buy USDT on the TRON network in Zambia

Published

on

By

Since their creation and use, cryptocurrencies are known for their volatility. But, amongst the crypto coins that are gaining popularity and tackling the problem of cryptocurrency volatility, Tether was introduced in 2014 and became USDT later on.  USDT because it is pegged to the U.S. dollar which does not change much in value.

What is USDT?

USDT is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency whose crypto coins in circulation are backed by an equivalent amount of traditional fiat currencies, like the Dollar, the Euro, or the Japanese Yen, which are held in a designated bank account.

It was specifically designed to bridge the gap between fiat currencies and cryptocurrencies and offer stability, transparency, and minimal transaction charges to users. It is pegged against the U.S. dollar and maintains a 1:1 ratio with the U.S. dollar in terms of value.

Why is USDT useful?

Tether is useful for crypto investors because it offers a way to avoid the extreme volatility of other cryptocurrencies.

Transaction cost: Having USDT (as opposed to the U.S. dollar, Euro or Yen) removes transaction costs and delays that impair trade execution within the crypto market.  With the COVID-19 repercussions, banks in Zambia are trying to attract more customers and stay in business though their fees and rates are relatively exorbitant. However, using USDT, Zambians get the opportunity to shy away from the banking fees as well as exchange rate margin that are charged by banks depending on the foreign currency.

Safe Haven Asset: USDT has a value that is designed to be stable over any period. This feature makes it an ideal safe haven asset because, unlike cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin that can fluctuate dramatically in price every day, an individual using stablecoins to store value see no risk of loss, especially because they have full custody of their asset.

Remittance: Cross-border payments and remittances are very real problems that Zambian emigrants face when trying to send money home. A World Bank report argues that Africans have to pay as high as $12 for any $100 sent home. If remittances are a major source of income for most African homes, it will be beneficial to have the cost of the transactions reduced to the advantage of the beneficiary populations.

The good news is that Zambians and other residents now have a safe platform to trade USDT with the ZMW at the best rates. Moreover, USDT on Yellow Card is available on the Tron network (TRC-20) which offers cheaper network fees to transfer your usdt between wallets.
