Prudential Plc has taken over the investment of Professional Life Assurance, one of the world’s oldest and most strongly capitalized life insurers, on Tuesday opened for business in Zambia.
The company launched its presence in Zambia Tuesday at a Media Breakfast held at intercontinental Hotel in Lusaka. The company which previously traded as Professional Life Assurance is now known as acquired and Prudential Life Assurance Zambia and becomes part of one of the largest financial services companies in the world. Matt Lilley CEO for Prudential African who addressed the media breakfast in the morning said  Prudential has ambitious plans to create a market-leading insurer serving the growing long-term savings needs of Zambians.
Meanwhile Krishnaswamy Rajagopal, Chief Executive of Prudential Zambia, said: “We are very excited to be part of one of the world’s strongest and most respected companies and look forward to working with colleagues globally to provide high quality products for our customers. And answering questions from the media on how much penetration is Prudential likely to enter the Zambia informal sector, Rajagopal said the company already has a programme were those who are not in employment and have no bank accounts can acquire assurance though a deliberate program called BANTU BONSE. These are criminal conduits making themselves rich in the name of ploughing back through social responsibility. Nineteen-year-old Proflight Zambia pilot Besa Mumba (second right) with First Lady Esther Lungu, members of the Women in Aviation Zambia chapter and Proflight colleagues..
LUSAKA, ZAMBIA – Proflight Zambia’s newest and youngest pilot, Besa Mumba, was congratulated by First Lady Esther Lungu this week at the launch of the Zambian chapter of the Women in Aviation movement. Nineteen-year-old Ms Mumba, who is Zambia’s youngest commercial pilot and has just embarked on her flying career, also came face-to-face with industry stalwart Yichida Ndlovu, the nation’s first Zambian female pilot, and Colonel Nina Tapula, the first woman pilot in the Zambian Air Force (ZAF).
Speaking during a lunch attended by leading women in the sector, the First Lady urged Miss Mumba to aim high in life and presented her with a cash token of appreciation for her achievements so far in being a role model for young women. Nineteen-year-old Proflight Zambia pilot Besa Mumba receives a token of appreciation from First Lady Esther Lungu. Miss Mumba thanked Proflight for giving her the opportunity to further her career as a commercial pilot and pledged to set a good example for other young women, urging them to work hard and pursue their dreams. And in launching the local chapter of Women in Aviation Ms Ndlovu said: “We are encouraged so much and since we are already in the sky we cannot say the sky is the limit.
Ms Mumba was joined at the function by some of Proflight’s other senior women high-flyers, including Lusaka station manager Sylvia Chanda, marketing manager Hellen N. The building of Kariba Dam does not have a lot of information on it, except that people were shifted to pave way for the construction of one of Africa’s biggest electrical power stations in 1955, reports Zambian Eye Tourism Editor Chimuka Moono Hanyama.
According to the traditions of the Tonga people that live along the Zambezi Valley, Nyaminyami is a river god that lives in the mighty Zambezi River. The Nyaminyami is believed to have caused a lot of havoc during the first phase of the Dam wall construction.In 1958 part of the dam wall was swept by the rising water, thereby killing the whites and some few blacks who were working on the site. The bodies of the white workers could not be seen even after 3 days until the Tonga elders killed a fat black calf, which they threw in the river to appease the angry Nyaminyami. Apart from being responsible for the tremors that’s are experienced along the Zambezi Valley, the river god is also believed to have powers to provide food for the Tonga people along the valley during the time of draughts! Kariba Dam, whose name is derived from ‘Kariva or Karinga’, (which means trap), is believed to have been build on a rocky gorge where the Nyaminyami had his home. While one touches the water on the other side of the bridge, it is about 100metres down on the other side! During the opening of the spillway gates, when the other side of the bridge overflows, a lot of Tourists both from Zambia and Zimbabwe flock to the area for this beautiful scenery.
Well, the tale of Nyaminyami may sound legendary, but the truth is that this tale is told even today. The river god a nice evening fireside story meant to entertain the children of the displaced people of the valley.

This article explores the postsecondary educational attainment of First Nations women in Canada.
The article presents data based on the 2001 and 2006 censuses regarding the postsecondary educational attainment of First Nations women aged 25 to 64, including comparisons between First Nations women and men, as well as between First Nations women and women in the total Canadian population. There are three groups of Aboriginal peoples in Canada: North American Indian (hereafter referred to as First Nations people), Metis and Inuit. Census data for First Nations people include individuals with and without Registered Indian status, as well as individuals living on and off reserve. In this article, comparisons are made between First Nations women and First Nations men, as well as First Nations women and the total Canadian population of women.
Census data do not permit analyses of multiple degrees or studies that did not result in the completion of a postsecondary certificate, diploma or degree. Trades: Encompasses individuals who have an apprenticeship certificate or diploma, or other trades certificate or diploma as the highest level of education they have attained. College: Encompasses individuals who have a college, CEGEP or other non-university certificate or diploma as the highest level of education they have attained. According to the 2006 Census, 44% of First Nations women aged 25 to 64 had completed some form of postsecondary education.
While the proportion of First Nations women with a trades credential decreased between 2001 and 2006, the overall trend indicates that postsecondary educational attainment for First Nations women has increased. Overall, from 2001 to 2006, the proportion of First Nations women obtaining college credentials increased from 17% to 21% (see Chart 1). The gap between First Nations women and women in the total Canadian population at the college level narrowed from 2001 to 2006. Twelve percent of First Nations women and 9% of women in the overall population had trades credentials in 2001; however, by 2006, 9% of both First Nations women and women in the total population had trades credentials. According to the Census, First Nations women were more likely to have college and university credentials than their male counterparts in both 2001 and 2006. Conversely, a higher percentage of First Nations men had trades credentials in both 2001 and 2006. The gaps in educational attainment between First Nations women and men for college and university credentials remained relatively stable from 2001 to 2006. In 2006, the three most common fields of study in the trades for First Nations women were health professions (25%), personal and culinary services (21%), and business (21%). Business was the most common field of study for college graduates among First Nations women (31%), First Nations men (13%), and women in the total population (35%).
The most common university degree obtained by First Nations women, First Nations men, and women in the total population was in the field of education.


In 2006, the proportion of First Nations women with a postsecondary education was highest among those aged 35 to 39 (48%), whereas for women in the overall Canadian population, this proportion was highest for adults aged 30 to 34 (72%) (see Chart 3).
Also, there were proportionately more First Nations women with a postsecondary education among the older age groups (35 to 39 to 50 to 54 year olds) than among the younger age groups (25 to 29 and 30 to 34 year olds).
These data suggest that more First Nations women may defer their postsecondary studies until later in life compared to women in the total Canadian population.
To further examine this, the educational attainment of five different cohorts of women was observed at two points in time: in 2001 and five years later, in 2006. Table 2 shows the proportions of women with trades, college, and university credentials in each of these cohorts for both First Nations women and women in the total population. For instance, in 2001, 16% of First Nations women aged 25 to 29 (Cohort 1) had college credentials, and by 2006 this proportion had increased to 23%. Many factors contribute to differences in postsecondary educational attainment across regions. In 2006, Yukon, the Northwest Territories, and Ontario had the highest proportions of First Nations women aged 25 to 64 who were college graduates, at just over 25%, while Quebec was the province with the highest proportion of First Nations women with trades credentials (15%) (Chart 4).
First Nations women in Prince Edward Island (18%), Nova Scotia (14%), and New Brunswick (12%) were most likely to have a university degree, whereas First Nations women in the Northwest Territories were least likely to do so (4%).
Note: The number of First Nations women aged 25 to 64 in Nunavut was too small to be analysed.
Chart 5 shows the percentage of First Nations women who lived on and off reserve at the time of the 2006 Census who had trade, college or university credentials.
According to these data, First Nations women living on reserve were less likely than First Nations women living off reserve (both with and without Registered Indian status) to be trades, college or university graduates. Off reserve, slightly more First Nations women who were Registered Indians had a university degree (11%) as compared to their counterparts who were not Registered Indians (9%). Chart 6 shows the postsecondary educational attainment of First Nations women who lived in (off-reserve) rural and urban areas at the time of the 2006 Census. In 2006, a higher proportion of First Nations women living in large urban areas had a university degree (13%) as compared to their counterparts who lived in smaller urban and rural areas (9% in both cases) – a finding that was also observed in the overall Canadian population.5 Urban and rural communities were more alike in terms of the proportions of First Nations women with trades and college credentials.
Chart 7 shows the relationship between employment rates and highest level of education attained (i.e. Overall, there is little difference in the employment rates of First Nations women, First Nations men, and women in the total population once education at the college and university levels is taken into account.
Further research is needed to fully understand the complex relationship between education and labour market outcomes for First Nations women. Future research could also usefully explore the reasons why First Nations women tend to obtain college credentials later in life. Research by the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation has also shown that Aboriginal university and college students are, on average, older than mainstream students and more likely to be married or to have children.
UPND presidential candidate Hakainde Hichilema says President Edgar Lungu’s stance on development is unacceptable. President Edgar Lungu has once again shown his hypocrisy and ignorance on many issues, especially the true spirit of One Zambia One Nation. Reports from his tours of the country show that he continues to preach divisive sentiments, proposing to only develop areas that vote for him and to ignore those that vote for the opposition. Moreover, President Lungu should note that it is exactly this sort of attitude and behaviour that undermines our prospects for peace and unity as a nation. President Lungu has clearly failed to learn that citizens have a democratic right to vote for a leader of their choice, and that once elected that President must represent each and every citizen. Development projects must be spread across the country and be rolled-out as part of a wider plan of how to achieve the party’s vision, which in the case of the UPND is a united, prosperous and equitable Zambia. Given the approach the PF is proposing of only developing select areas at the expense of others we can only suppose that their vision is simply more power and personal wealth for its top officials. Lungu’s stance also confirms why some areas and constituencies in the country have to date been neglected and not received fair attention, for example through the release of Constituency Development Funds.
This follows the acquisition of Professional Life Assurance by Prudential last month and the granting of regulatory approval. Prudential, listed on the London, Singapore and Hong Kong stock exchanges, has 24 million life insurance customers in the UK, Asia, the United States and Africa, and US$660 billion of assets under management. Prudential Zambia will also draw on its expertise from throughout the world to provide high quality products for customers,” Lilley told journalists.

Research has shown that attainment of postsecondary education increases employment and income opportunities and provides a stronger base for communities for economic and other forms of community development.
While many do not complete high school, there is evidence that Aboriginal peoples return to school later in life and as such, have different pathways to postsecondary education than individuals in the overall Canadian population.2 This article provides information regarding these and other topics related to postsecondary educationnal attainment for First Nations women. Variations in First Nations women’s postsecondary educational attainment are explored across a number of socio-demographic characteristics such as age, geography, and area of residence (on- versus off-reserve; urban versus rural areas).
In 2006, an estimated 698,025 people identified themselves as First Nations people, comprising 60% of the overall Aboriginal population in Canada and 2.2% of the total Canadian population. This article focuses on the First Nations identity population, and includes people who have self-identified as First Nations people as a single response (that is, not in combination with Inuit or Metis identity). The category ‘total Canadian population of women’ includes the entire population of women in Canada (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal). As such, a certificate, diploma or degree identified in this analysis (such as a trades certificate or a college diploma) refers to the highest accreditation attained by the respondent, according to the order listed above.
For example, a person holding both a college diploma and a university degree would be counted in the ‘University degree’ category only. In addition, there was a two percentage-point increase, from 7% to 9%, in the proportion obtaining a university degree. Chart 2 shows that in 2001, 17% of First Nations women and 21% of women in the overall population had college credentials.
In 2001, there was a 12 percentage-point difference in the proportions with a university degree between First Nations women (7%) and women in the overall population (19%); by 2006, this had increased to a 14 percentage-point difference (9% versus 23%).


In 2006, 21% of First Nations women and 14% of First Nations men had college credentials, while 9% of First Nations women and 5% of First Nations men had university degrees (see Chart 2).
For example, twice as many First Nations men had trades credentials in 2006 (18%) as compared to First Nations women (9%). In the trades, however, the gap between First Nations women and men increased over the same time period.
Women with trade credentials in the overall Canadian population studied in the same top three fields as First Nations women (Table 1).
Health professions, and family and human sciences, were in second and third place for both First Nations women (23% and 10%, respectively) and women in the total population (26% and 5%).
This pattern was not found among women in the overall Canadian population, where younger adults were more highly educated than their older counterparts. Since the Census is not longitudinal, this comparison does not follow the same group of women over time; however, it can provide a picture of the average experience for women in a particular cohort. Relative to women overall, the First Nations women cohorts of 25 to 29, 30 to 34, and 35 to 39 years old experienced notable gains in the proportion of college diploma completions between 2001 and 2006. This compares to a one percentage-point increase (24% to 25%) for women overall in the same cohort. While it is beyond the scope of this article to examine all of these factors in detail, a few potential factors that may explain these variations include (but are not limited to): geographic location of First Nations people, geographic location of postsecondary institutions, availability and types of programs, as well as the nature of labour markets in each region.
The off-reserve data are examined by whether or not First Nations women reported having Registered Indian status. The gap between First Nations women living on and off reserve was larger at the university level. Urban areas have been broken down into Census metropolitan areas (CMA) which will be referred to as large urban areas and non-Census metropolitan areas (non-CMA) which will be referred to as small urban areas. According to the 2006 Census, the employment rate for First Nations women with a high school diploma was 58%, compared to 63% for those with trade credentials, 72% for women with a college diploma, and 80% for those with a university degree. However, First Nations women with high school as their highest level of education appear to face a disadvantage in the labour market when compared to First Nations men and women overall with the same level of education (with employment rates of 58%, 69% and 68%, respectively).
Data from the 2006 Census shows that First Nations children tend to be raised by younger parents than non-Aboriginal children.6 Future research could explore how early childbearing may affect the path to postsecondary education for young First Nations women. Coming from a sitting head of state such statements can even be read as an attempt to blackmail voters. He is tribal and divisive and too dangerous for the position he holds and for the vision of one prosperous Zambia. He disclosed that in the previous financial year, the company has received close to a million Kwacha in premiums though the informal sector and the company recommitted in ploughing back to the community through social responsibility. What surprised people more was the fact that despite the river being infested with crocodiles, the bodies of the workers were not eaten even a bit!

Our enthusiastic highly qualified trainers will offer a course that is relevant to the African market and most importantly provides a viable application route for the Science of Ergonomics. Also examined are the fields of study most common for First Nations women and the relationship between postsecondary education and employment. Less than 1% of the Aboriginal identity population reported more than one Aboriginal identity in 2006. In addition, Census data do not allow for an analysis of individuals who have taken some postsecondary education but who did not complete their program of studies. An additional 9% had a university degree, 9% had a trades certificate, and 5% had a university certificate or diploma below the bachelor’s level. On the other hand, the proportion of First Nations women obtaining trades credentials decreased from 12% in 2001 to 9% in 2006.
The other most common fields of study for First Nations men with a college diploma were engineering technologies (11%), construction trades (11%), and mechanic and repair technologies (11%). Similarly, the proportion of First Nations women in Cohort 2 (aged 30 to 34) with a college diploma increased from 19% in 2001 to 23% in 2006; this compares to a one-percentage-point increase (24% to 25%) for women overall in the same cohort. For example, 11% of off-reserve women who were Registered Indians had a university degree compared to 6% of their counterparts living on reserve. This is also the case when comparing the employment rate for First Nations women and women overall with trades credentials (63% and 72%, respectively). Our forefathers fought to bring peace, freedom and togetherness in this country which this ka divisive, visionless and careless president wants to destroy in just one year. In addition to the theoretical knowledge all attendees will receive our self-developed Ergokinetics software which will enable them to easily commence with Ergonomic risk assessments. With our software, learners will immediately be able to complete basic Ergonomics risk assessments for Manual Materials Handling, Work-related Upper Limb Disorders and Office Ergonomics. Comparisons of Aboriginal data across Census years include only those reserves that participated in both the 2001 and 2006 censuses.
As such, the education indicator used in this article, the highest level of education attained, should be interpreted with these limitations in mind. As for First Nations women in Cohort 3 (aged 35 to 39), the proportion with a college diploma increased from 19% to 23%, while these proportions went from 24% to 25% among women overall in the same cohort. Embracing Differences: Post-secondary Education among Aboriginal Students, Students with Children and Students with Disabilities.
These discreet fish thrived in the Zambezi before the construction of the Kariba dam wall which disturbed their life cycle.
This shows that First Nations women obtain college credentials later in life relative to women overall.
Now comes a man who wants us to see each other through the tribal and regional lense, all for his continued stay in power. Their life cycle included migration from the river freshwaters to breed in the salt waters of the Zambezi delta in Mozambique and returned upstream to nurture and mature when the cycle would repeat. I implore my fellow Zambians, across the country and regardless of the party you identify yourself with to vote across party lines and put UPND in power.
The dam wall cut off this migration thus curtailing breeding and the few that were trapped in the forming Lake Kariba lived to perish naturally or through fishing. This is a sure way to send a signal to all current and would be leaders to never ever attempt to press the divisive button. It could be that the early fish scientists in their studies found a larger composition of male eels in the lake while below the dam wall there could have been a larger number of females explanation being probably the males after fertilizing the eggs returned early upstream leaving the females behind to guard the nests and babies until such a time that they were ready for the journey upstream. Meanwhile works on the dam may have started, thus thwarting the migration of the new recruits and separation of Nyaminyami from his female partner in the tale!
The addition of the Cahora Bassa dam in Mozambique sealed the depopulation of the eel specie in the Zambezi river. Had provision been provided (pathways) to allow these fish negotiate the wall barrier they would have thrived to this day and the Nyaminyami mystery would have been told with a happy ending!
