A Zambian Journalist: In Pursuit of Three Freedoms

by Mike Daka

Mike Daka’s story is a fascinating account that is at once the story of an extraordinary journalist, and rich insight into the history of the media and journalism in Zambia and Southern Africa. Born into humble circumstances, his journey took him into journalism as reporter and editor and then to shaping and leading the Zambia Institute of Mass Communication which taught generations of journalists through changing political circumstances. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Daka retired from Zamcom to start Breeze FM in Chipata, a radio station that became internationally renowned for its unique character as a commercial operation that provides community and public service.

Review

"The story is a rich one, moving from the toughest neighbourhoods of Lusaka to the capitals of the world and finally to the Zambian countryside; covering everything from bureaucratic obstacles that needed to be overcome to high honours obtained.  Few have done more to shape the current media landscape in Zambia than Mike Daka: readers of his book will be richly rewarded.”
