DEAR DIARY: Every girl has a right to education

I had said it in the past that every child has a right to study and create a better future. Teen pregnancy is a big issue, which featured prominently in the country this week. It is a sad reality that many young girls are pregnant. Denying that reality is quite a big mistake. Condemning someone for getting pregnant at a young age when they don’t actually even understand their bodies is quite unfortunate.

DEAR DIARY: Its not goodbye but see you later

>Leaving on a Jet plane is a song by John Denver, but most people will identify it with its first line All my bags are packed I’m ready to go. My mother loved this song and she hummed it every morning under the bougainvillaea tree as she took a nap. Sooner or later her demise hit us like thunder on a sunny day.

DEAR DIARY : When it is all about the man

You have perhaps heard about women who go to sex experts to help them improve their bedroom skills. They also visit women who profess to have all the knowledge about keeping a man. It is all about making men happy and nothing else.

I was following the First Ladies Summit on child marriage which recently took place in Lusaka closely since I had received an invitation to attend the same but could not make it due to unavoidable circumstances.

DEAR DIARY: Why would anyone kill a child?

It is hard to imagine that someone can harm their own child, leave alone a baby. It is human instinct to want and protect life instead of destroying it, especially that of a child. But things happen and sometimes, they happen to you.

DEAR DIARY: The future is not as I envisioned

>It is amazing that we only have 32 days to 2015. I often smile to the thought that I am in the future. 2015 is a big year, no doubt. It is the year that governments have placed deadlines to different development goals. It is the year that we will have our general election; it is a year of many changes indeed. Look at yourself; this is how the future looks like.

DEAR DIARY: Good looks will get you votes

>Women vote for good looking men. Don’t we? Before you protest, hold it, hold it ladies… We don’t have to look very far to test the theory. Our dear President is a good example. If you voted for JK, how many of you would say that his looks didn’t cross your mind at all when you were voting? Be truthful now.
