Gift Chanda

I am a Lusaka-based Zambian freelance journalist with over six years experience covering Zambian current affairs. My background includes reporting on everything from politics and international relations to business, culture and sport.
I worked for The Post Newspaper, Zambia’s largest privately owned newspaper, for over four years, where I extensively wrote on mining, corporate deal-making and agriculture in Zambia.
I have also been corresponding with several recognised local and international media organisation. More recently, I was part of the ‘Fatal Extraction’; a transnational investigation initiated by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), to uncover Australian mining companies’ dubious activities in Africa.



Zambians braved long queues across the country to cast ballots Thursday, in a tight presidential election tarnished by unrest and an economy battered by weak commodity prices. —Gift Chanda in Lusaka, Zambia, contributed to this article.
