Administration Issues

Advance Notice : Annual Break 

To be aware that in line with established practice, I shall again be taking my break from blogging between 1st - 31st December. The annual break from blogging is a long time tradition which allows me to  recharge my batteries and take a step back and focus on other areas of my life. What this will mean in practice is that no new posts will be published between that period.

Zambian Elections 2011 Project

A number of you have asked on the status on the Zambian Elections 2011 Project. Unfortunately, it wont be possible to take forward the idea in its original conception. Although I received interesting proposals for papers (10 - 15 credible proposals), it is likely to be resource intensive (despite the delusions of some that this is a sort of political project, this website is only an hobby. I do actually have a real job, a family, a church and other areas of service).  So I did ask myself whether such a project would require scaling back on other things. The answer was Yes, and the sacrifice proved too great - under the original conception.

I do think though we need a dedicate election website (during the three months of election campaigns) and we shall use that website in 2011, 2016 and beyond. It will be an independent source of relevant news, catalogue of promises, profile of candidates, election results, etc.
