FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE
Freedom a4d independence are supposed to be synonymous

HroUSEWIVFES F THE WOlCR V2TOEU I.. -
by. Kapolwa. iusonda.
Ever since this minor misunderstand-
ing between the Government afd the
Trade Union Congress started, the wife
of a. friend has been behaving iiore and
more like a. trade uni6iost. And the
husband like a. government.
2-;eryone will recall that week
ago Mr Mwanakatwe, the Finance Minister,
said in Parliament that trade unions
were to some extent frustrating Zambian-
ization because there have been strikes
in the industrial sector whose sole aim
was the removal of some unpopular per-
sonnel officer. In reply, Mr Chakulya
said among other things that, in fact,
it was thec Government whicE was frus-
trating the whole Zambianiiation policy.
There the- argument ended, perhaps as
everyone felt that enough had been said
about the. issue. One can" be sure. that
there will be a.commission of enquiry
to find out the truth. -
The. situation with'bmy friend is
rather similar. I came to leari of it
one day when I found him drinking alone
in one of the local bars. .
'You are thinking too much,' I said,
takingthie nexf sea .
tIt's them trade unions,' he cried.
draining his.glass. 'This" would be the
happiest country if it.wasn't for those
trade unions."
'I would have said otherwise. I
didn't know you belonged to any one of
them-as a. civil servant' -
'Obviously you don't uhderstani,--It s
the-influence they have oh'my wife.'
'I. guess the whole thing-is-beyond
me.,- Ihave always thought your wife
never.-worked, since you beli&v-e that a
womants place is in the home.1
'That is what I have tried-to do but
it has back-fired. She now claims that
all Zambian housewives are happyy as
they are getting most unfair"treatment
from their husbands. "She says husbands
are spending- all their tii&6 on girl-
friends and in bars leaving the wives
neglected..
tShe may have a point there, but I
still oan't see what she could do about
i t .' .
S'Eactly what I felt at first. But
now-she is all set to form a uhibn she
intends to call the Zambia Housewivest
Trade Union. .-..
'She is not serious ib shm?


R _*h.j--3iay974V
(fr.col.11 "Yes I li fact, she has al-
ready mailed a lettor .t`GChaku3lya for
affiliatioii-to the Zambia Congress of
Trade Unions, .
tBut what is the tro le?' I asl-ed
perplexed.
'She has apparently talked to 'a 16t
of other wives .anhdthey. fully support
her in thisd.- "She sady Zambian husbAnds.
are not Zbhmianizing the.home as much as
they should"......
'What does she moan by Zabianiaation
in the home V. ..
'I couldnIt "understand it either, as
these women ate rather short on the vo-
cabulary. But, when she explained, it
appears that men are npt:taking up enough
responsibilities at -home.'
'What does" she want you to do? I.
thought you had a house servant to help
her--with house wbrk?"
'That is the pointt. She claims I
should not leave everything to her and
the servant. I should also make myself
part of the household, 'She wants'me to
spend some time with thq' children," play
football'with them, teach them some games
or songs, help her change nappies and so
on.
IBut that"s-ridiculous. Are you sure
she.-is alright?' -
'I. have wondered about thhht mysitf tool
The other" day she was talking .about my
taking her o'ut to cinema parties, and
dances, and such like places. Worst of
all she Wants me to' be Qalling' her "dar-
ling" or "honey". I have made it clear"
to her that I would be the laughing-stook
of the whole/town if-I. went about calling.
her such funny things,
'I am glad -you stood your ground on
that. Itts most'un-Zambian to call your
wife such-idiotic namesaf'l
'True. She wasn't even happy when I
compromised and said. I would call her,-
A'Comrade". She said it. was insulting-'
1I can see why you are so unhappy wijh
trade unions." ".-
'I haven't tolyf ou anything yet.
Another point of real contention is-her
security. She' is unhappy with the largo
number of secretaries and registry work-
ers at our office. She claims that I im
always under pressure and temptation and
I might break'any-day.f '
'You have of course-assured'her that
she-has nothing to worry about,.

S Sadab a wise Man?
President Sadat of Egypt after
agreeing with Israel and signing ftr
the exchange of troops as a first step
to peace, must be looked upon as a
wise man*- Consider the trips he made
to explain to the others his reason
for peace and maybe advising them to
halt the criucial oil embargo. e
told them that the U.S. is a friend
of theirs and should not suffer for,
oil. 'Egy'pt and Syria have suffered
the iosit in-this war, while Russia
and the other'Arab states suffered
hardly at "all,
I agree with Sadat especially if
hbe would turn his:U back on Russia
and hold on to the U.S:. From'USSR
he only" got arms; and not food. He
should realize now that the VT.S;. is
the most charitable country in the
world. -- ---

JI "ME, AND IV PUPPIES"
by Al Akong .. .- Part 1
I realised that it was now morning, I
.had been dreaming. Inside the cold tiny
concrete house in which my bed lay was
no longer pitph-blacki the light of dawn
had penetrate. all the openings of the
house that it found'
I felt the still coldness of the at-
mosphere the damp cold of the concrete
floor, of the bed and the' thii bedspread
that wrapped ;y stark naked bo~y'" I was
lying on my bhply, my left hand, nti#
with cold, I carefully' ihched under 'my
chest to get it at the warith of. my arm-
pit, to bring it back alive', and I made
this transfer without raising my belly
unnecessarily off' the warm part of the
bedspread that lay under it .-.
The whole qf :my lower 1eak w~s throb-
sing with a gentle penetrating pain;
,nothing o worry about I Tniew it was
the c6ldcess of the previous night and
of the morning soaking into'me and would
soon go sway completely after I got up
and moved about. That always happened
when I slept ip that house and' the night
wascolJ1. I tied to fall back to sleep
ago and back to my dreaming.
t waa. reliving to- know that morning
had'. arrived at 'last. The entire night
was aS uneventful and"bla6ck~s the others
before a repetitive sequence of dreaming,
getting up feeling the. cold oftthe Decem-
ber night, witi a numb left hand, moving
tiat- hand to tae warmest part'of the.
body, and twisting ald triuing, pulling
at the* 'gaippeoy' bedsprad that wouldn't
stay over my bpdy, 4djusting""myself-until
I settled into" a fore comfoPtable posi-
tion, then goig over thie dream that I
just had in every tail, until I fell
back to sleep. .... .
IOh shit ".Dog' I raised my voice .
in disgust anl aage. It 'was my little
dog; even though I did"not"opeii my eyes.
I could see hep standing on her hindlegs,
I could hear her and "feel- te vibrations
as she scratched the mattrs w16 ith her
forepaws; she was trying ;desperately to
lick the hair .on my head, hobling and
wagging her tail with unboniaolablq glad-
ness. I stretched my" ari over the bed
and let her pqunce on" my haad'to lick
and scratch ai it as if I had just saved
her.life,or I had just returned home
aftO a long and lonely abscenc'. I keow
that once I had let her "do"that -sh ..
would" .. stop pestering me.

Once I was on the floor, my little
puppy attacked my feet with renewed

incessantly at my Acaillea tendon ith

During those dark, often rainy and
cold, lonely December nights at the Bay
when I locked my60lf in that house to '
concentrate on"reading, writing or some-
times finishing drawings of the bay that
I had started during .the day, my puppy
was my only companion. I often put her
on my .table to prevent her playing with
my feet and there she would either sleep
or play' around the warm kerosene lamp,
Whenever I paused at my reading, or
writing to digest an interesting part,
or to do some" tliihking around what I was
going to write next, or to look at the-
progress of my drawia )he noise outside
from the heavy North Coast waves that
sent the'rock&sand stones scampering back
