The Mwanawasa Years

An Analysis of His Presidency

by Reginald Ntomba

A brilliant student, an accomplished lawyer, a reluctant politician, a surprise presidential candidate who was controversially elected and incessantly criticised; Levy Mwanawasa posthumously enjoys high approval ratings. As if he were a prophet, he told some of his confidants that Zambians would only appreciate him when he was gone.

Who was he? What did he stand for? What did he set out to achieve in his presidency? How did the people he worked with judge him? Where did he succeed? Where did he fail? What could he have done differently or better? What sort of legacy did he bequeath Zambia?
