New Marketing Campaign for 'Against All Odds' Launched

Zambia's Presidential election was held on August 11, 2016 for the second time in 20 months. After the ensuing post-election drama, Edgar Lungu has emerged the winner, proving to the country and the sub-region at large that he was not the political lightweight that some might have thought him to be.

Set for a new marketing campaign, "Against All Odds: Zambia's President Edgar Chagwa Lungu's Rough Journey to State House" (published by Partridge Africa) written by Anthony Mukwita is about Zambia President Edgar Lungu as well as about African democracy and leadership. It is also about Zambia, the proverbial last bastion of peace in sub-Saharan Africa and about the great people of the southern African country.

"I was inspired by President Edgar Lungu's sheer will to survive against all obstacles thrown at him by his political nemesis in Zambia. He showed that you can survive the worst storm if you are tenacious," the Zambian born journalist and top-ranking diplomat says.

A passage from the book reads:
"I would like to be remembered as an ordinary man who became President, a man who showed that if you are resolved you can make things work for the greater good of your people," - Edgar Chagwa Lungu, President of Zambia.

'Edgar Lungu according to Mukwita "brings to the table a rare new breath of air to the Zambian political table."'
