Lungu’s Rough Journey to State House goes global

FRESH from an August 11, 2016 poll victory, President Lungu makes history yet again this week as the first Zambian head of state to be on the shelves of major book outlets globally.
A biographical book featuring him entitled ‘Against all Odds— Zambia’s President Edgar Chagwa Lungu’s Rough Journey to State House’ by author Anthony Mukwita goes live on Amazon this week.
The author of the book, Anthony Mukwita, who is Zambia’s deputy ambassador to Sweden, said his chronicles of President Lungu’s journey to State House began in 2014.
He, however, said he only received the President’s consent last year and is happy the project is now a reality.
Mr Mukwita said the book on President Lungu will be live on Amazon by Friday this week.
He said both analysts and critics alike have agreed that President Lungu’s ‘Against all Odds’ book is potentially set to be an ‘African bestseller’, buoyed largely by the fact that he is a living and serving President of Africa’s second largest copper producer.
Mr Mukwita said it will take between 30 to 45 days for online book resellers globally to upload the book on their systems from this week in order for readers in Zambia, Africa and beyond to access it through the more affordable copies but it will also come alive on Amazon before that.
“Apart from Amazon, President Lungu will be available on Barnes & Noble, including Ingram and to other distribution outlets of high repute in a few days,” he said.
