ZAMBIA National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) will increase its national coverage once it completes the digital migration process. The boosted coverage will be a result of an increase in the corporations's transmitter network from 64 to 86 analogue. Deputy Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Poniso Njeulu said ZNBC currently runs 64 analogue transmitters which only cover 80 percent of the Zambian population and do not cover all the remote areas.
THE year 2013 marks 200 years anniversary of the birth of David Livingstone. Zambia in partnership with its neighbouring countries has embarked on the commemoration of the bi-centenary with major planned events. These includes some cultural and sporting events, as well as an international arts exhibition. The event which is being held in Livingstone was launched between his actual birthday on 19th March and Independence Day in October 2013.
ZAMBIA has successfully handed over the Kavango Zambezi Trans Frontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) Chairpersonship to Zimbabwe as a coordinating country for KAZA TFCA programmes for the next two years commencing January 2013. Chairing the KAZA TFCA Ministerial Committee meeting held at Court Yard Hotel in Livingstone, Tourism and Arts Minister Sylvia Masebo said KAZA TFCA was a joint initiative among five governments namely Botswana, Angola, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
