Mille Bwangi, Mafa,

I really felt your article. Thank you. I work in Livingstone, Zambia as I have non-profit organization but live in Chicago, Illinois USA (Obamaland). I spend a lot of time in L/stone and have been to Zim. What city do you live in? Because Harare women dress like western women, I thought things were progressing more than they are. I know about "brain drain". It is almost impossible to explain what that is really like unless you are in it. It has destroyed so much. Like a tornado or hurricane that levels so much and it takes years to rebuild. But I am happy to see you are doing that.

I met Magabee a few years back. In Zambia, the brain drain is terrible. A medical doctor only needs to go to school for 2 years! I was ill and had to be in a private clinic and saw (and felt) the ramifications of that. The teachers are terrible. In one public school last term EVERY physics student failed the exam. On and on.

I wish you well. you will find great encouragement and many ideas at World Pulse.

Good luck . I look forward to reading more about you and your work.

Ubuntu (I am who I am because of who we are together),
