The Zambian has a new poetry collection Words That Matter with the following blurb;
Words That Matter attempts to spark conversation around social issues that are often neglected either for their lack of beauty or sheer rigidity. These issues are mainly cultural and political. It further seeks to community hope in its purest form, unfailing and evermore willingly to rewrite situations brightly however dark initially. Find thusly sarcasm and humour, folly and wisdom, discord and harmony, and death and life, all interwoven in revealing just how sound existence can be (or should be henceforth). Above all, get lost and find new paths in these verses!
