THE National Association for Media Arts (NAMA) has congratulated the Zambia Music and Copyright Protection Society (ZAMCOPS) chairman Edify Hamukale on his nomination as member of Parliament and his subsequent appointment as Southern Province minister.
In a short statement to the Weekend Mail in Lusaka, NAMA chairman Patrick “Sauloshi” Salubusa, himself a councillor for Kapwepwe ward in Matero Constituency, says they are hopeful that as an artiste himself, Hamukale will use his position to further the arts and culture in the province.
“We’re confident that as an artiste himself, he’ll make sure that arts and culture becomes a tourist attraction in the tourist capital through putting value on both performing and visual arts,” Sauloshi says.
An agriculturist and musician, Hamukale lists the causes he cares most about as animal welfare, arts and culture, children, civil rights and social action, disaster and humanitarian relief, economic empowerment, education, environment, health, human rights, politics, science and technology and social services.
Hamukale has a Bachelor of Sciences in Agriculture and Economics, a Master of Science in Agriculture, a Master of Business Administration, a Doctor of Philosophy (International Management), and a Doctor of Business Administration.
A lecturer at the Zambia Open University, he has held a number of positions including that of general manager (New Holland Agriculture), director of agriculture and construction division (CAMCO Equipment Zambia), operations manager (CAMCO Equipment Zambia), marketing manager (Food Reserve Agency of Zambia), regional manager (Pannar Seed Zambia), programme manager (Programme Against Malnutrition), farm manager (Zambeef Products), and Weigh Bridge Clerk (Zambia Sugar Company Plc).
