My Story in Brief

Using a multi-disciplinary approach, I combine a passion for law, theology, history and politics to reflect on issues affecting both personal and national development.  I do this with the conviction that our true greatness lies ahead of us. I also passionately believe that we owe a duty to the next generation to do all we can to make their world a better world and to make both Canada and Zambia better nations.

As a child growing up in different parts of my native Zambia, my school-teacher father modelled before us what it meant to be dedicated to country and public service. In 2001, after college graduation, I served as an instructor and eventually as principal of a college in Zambia. I have served in ordained ministry since 2004. In 2007, I made the trip to Canada as a student. I have since worked as a counsellor and as a pastor in Calgary, Alberta. My goal for the next few years is to do articles at a law firm before I get called to the Bar in Alberta. My prospective areas of practice as a lawyer are those that are closely connected to social justice, constitutionalism and the rule of law.

In 2009, I graduated from Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta, with a Master of Divinity degree. I also hold a Bachelor of Laws Degree (Honours) from University of Northumbria in England; a Bachelor of Arts Degree, from Swaziland College of Theology & Global University (MO, USA); and a Master of Arts (Counselling) from Providence Theological Seminary (Otterburne, Manitoba, Canada). In August 2014 I completed all requirements for the award of  a Master of Laws (LLM) degree at the prestigious Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago, IL, USA. I have also done post-graduate studies in Business Administration.
