On our January 28, 2015 Program:
“Zambia's Presidential Election"
Edgar Lungu has been sworn in as Zambia’s sixth president, following a close election on Tuesday, January 20. He will serve out the remaining term of former President Michael Sata, who died suddenly last October. Another election is due September 2016, when Sata's term would have expired. Mr. Lungu will have only a short period of time to turn around the sputtering economy of Africa’s top copper producer. The price of copper is now at a six year low.
