Butali House Book Club Meeting
23 March @ 18:00 - 19:30 CAT
The Butali House Book Club meets to engage, debate and critique the selected non-fiction book for that month. 12 books have been selected for 2017, and they cover a range of topics from business, corruption, foreign aid, entrepreneurship, management, and development.
The March read is ‘The Musakanya Papers’ by Valentine Musakanya. Valentine Musakanya played a leading role in Zambia’s first post-independence government as Secretary to the Cabinet and Head of the Civil Service. He was subsequently a Member of Parliament, a Government Minister and Governor of the Bank of Zambia. Musakanya is however better known today as one of those convicted of the 1980 coup attempt against the one-party state of Kenneth Kaunda’s United National Independence Party (UNIP) government. Although Musakanya was subsequently acquitted of involvement in the coup, questions have persisted: was Musakanya involved in the coup attempt? If so, why did he become involved? This volume, making Musakanya’s writings available in public for the first time, provides a glimpse into one of Zambia’s most brilliant minds.
