• We were honored to give the keynote address at the 9th edition of 'The Africa Debate' forum organized by Invest Africa at the historic Guildhall in London, United Kingdom. This prestigious forum convenes global businesses, private and public investment bodies, thought leaders, and policymakers, providing an opportunity to showcase the various trade and investment opportunities available in Africa, and specifically in Zambia.

    During the address, we emphasized Zambia's land-linked position, friendly people, young and energetic population, and abundant raw materials, which offers a great opportunity for investment in various sectors, particularly through joint public-private ventures. We also called for investment aimed at increasing the value addition of our raw materials within African countries, for intra-Africa and global trade.

    We stressed the need for African countries to harmonize digital platforms and certain laws to enable trade and investment among ourselves as we target overseas markets. It is important to note that an African rising is not meant to displace anyone, but it should benefit everyone globally. Therefore, stability and peace in our continent are paramount in attracting meaningful investments and cheaper capital.

    Additionally, we underscored the importance of increasing access to education and skills development for our citizens, especially our young people, to enhance business opportunities and improve the quality of job opportunities available.

    Hakainde Hichilema,
    President of the Republic of Zambia ????????

  • Dubonnet Dolphin,
    Frenchman Andre Dubonnet (pilot, racing driver & inventor) was heir to the Dubonnet wine company and with Jean Andreau in mid 30’s created an aerodynamic streamline (teardrop) automobile utilising aeronautical concepts.
    Built by coachbuilders Latourneur & Marchand and built based upon a Y-shape (Ford?) chassis with bodywork featuring two side entry doors and a single door at the front, powered by a mid-mounted Ford-Matford 3621cc V8 with a 4-speed (Cotal) electrically operated/manual transmission.
    The prototype was highly efficient and performed well, receiving much attention and may have taken inspiration from or inspired many others (Geddes, Stout, Dymaxion, McQuay-Norris, Arrow, Burney, Riley, Tatra/Skoda, Mars Express etc), but was never put into production.
    Henry Ford purchased the car and shipped it to America where Ford undertook a series of tests, but the only prototype has been lost to history?

  • On this day in 1775, the “shot heard round the world” occurs at Lexington Green!
    It had been mere hours since Paul Revere ended his famous ride from Boston to Lexington (see yesterday’s post). Seven hundred British soldiers were en route to Concord. Their goal? They wanted to seize the weapons and supplies that Americans had stored at Concord, Massachusetts.
    In the early morning hours of April 19, the British troops ran into about 70 American minutemen on Lexington Green. These men were led by Captain John Parker, a veteran of the French and Indian War. As the British approached, the Americans stood firm. But then someone heard a British officer shout: “Lay down your arms, you damned rebels!” Others heard similar variations of the same comment: “Throw down your arms, ye villains, ye rebels” or “Ye villains, ye rebels, disperse, damn you, disperse!”
    In the meantime, Parker later testified that he “immediately ordered our Militia to disperse, and not to fire.” Most of the men began to disperse, as ordered, but some never heard the order. And NONE of the Americans put down their arms.
    No one really knows who fired the first shot that followed . . . the “shot heard round the world”!
    Some British officers were certain that it was a provincial hidden behind a hedge. Others thought the shot came from a nearby tavern. Some of the militia at Lexington were certain that British officers fired at them.
    Regardless, the first shot WAS fired. The British began firing at Americans, leaving eighteen Americans killed or wounded. Some Americans returned fire, but only one British soldier was mildly wounded.
    The British troops continued toward Concord. They searched for weapons without finding anything of note. Potentially, the British could have simply returned to Boston at that point but for one thing: A fire broke out. The source of that fire is unknown, but the American militia thought that the British were burning down buildings. They ran for North Bridge and a brief skirmish ensued, leaving 3 British and 2 Americans dead. The British began their retreat toward Boston.
    Americans fired upon British soldiers the entire way back to Boston, where they cornered them in the city. In all, nearly 300 British soldiers were killed or wounded during the retreat. By contrast, Americans lost less than 100.
    The Library of Congress summarizes: “By the end of the day, the colonists were singing ‘Yankee Doodle’ and the American Revolution had begun.”
