About Us

Countries with strong economies attract job seekers. Today an estimated 15% of the world's 7 billion people live in 22 countries most sound financially. Its believed that 50 million people have been displaced from from their place of birth for either economic or political reasons, or both. On this radio show we discuss issues related to legal immigration, brain drain of highly qualified professionals, success stories of immigrants and politics in the homeland. We bring experts from around the world and talk to them every Saturday for 4 hours starting at 8:00am to 12:00noon New York time. A list of topics and guests is posted here and at our website: http://www.mwape.com The first show was August 9th, 2008. Our founders are James & Ruth Mwape who work with the following host & contributors: Kambidima Wotela, PhD; Rev. Melody & Pastor Davies Lombe; Mwewa Mwape, Dr. Evans Phiri; Richard Mbewe, PhD; Ngoza Simwanza; Harrison Musonda; Chola Mukanga; Prof. Mwizenge Tembo, etc. While most guests are Zambians from Zambia and around the world, we also talk to non-Zambian's on a regular basis.

Since time immemorial there has been this antagonistic view that there is the RICH and the POOR sitting at poles. But is it really true that we have this static group of people that never changes,that therich will forever be rich. Africa and Africans in general have found themselves at the lower scale of power and wealth, and for this most Africans and indeed other poor people consider themselves victims of this social arrangement that favours the rich and victimises the poor. Today the host try to debunk the myth that there are victims and victmisers at the global level that cannot be reversersed. And points out that to a certain extent what matters most is the quality of life and not wealth, but those who want to ensure they are well looked after by the "system" there are simple steps they can take and these can lead to joining the millionaire club.

Salaula Underwear

"WHILE it has always been a good economic practice to buy used or second-hand motor vehicles, books and clothes in Zambia, the purchase and wearing of used undergarments raises many moral and health questions. Does donning salaula Victoria Secrets underwear not say something about the place of our people in the world economy? What could be the health implications of sharing or wearing someone else’s underwear? In any case, for how will this dehumanising and humiliating trade in salaula underpants go on in Zambia? These are serious questions beseeching sober reflection, not only from our leaders but also citizens. Quick action is required and we cannot afford to fold our arms and pretend there are no issues surrounding the morality or immorality of having used lingerie on our markets...."

United Nations

Endogamy and Exogamy

Endogamy is when one marries someone within one's own group. Exogamy is when one marries someone outside one's own group. "One's own group" may be more or less comprehensive: thus, "ethnic endogamy" would mean that e.g. Norwegians only married other Norwegians; "community endogamy" would mean that one only married other members of one's community. The organizational advantage of endogamy is that few outsiders are brought into the group, so inheritance and property are not dissipated among too many persons. The organizational advantage of exogamy is that outsiders are constantly brought in, which might be desirable, e.g. if the group has shortages in their work force. Exogamy also means that representatives of other, potentially enemy groups will be present in your own group, exerting pressure to avoid conflicts. The exchange of spouses across groups, is therefore a classical mechanism of alliance formation. Do you support marrying outside your community/race or not?
