In presenting some facts and figures about the position of women in Zambia, I am fully aware of the limitations to such an approach. Obviously Zambian women live in a stratified society, and this should influence the way my statistics are used.
This article presents the results of a research that was done in Zambia aimed at assessing the readiness and willingness of different stakeholders (citizens and businesses) to engage in e-Government. Since e-Government is a multi-dimensional phenomenon, its analysis and measurement also call for a multivariate approach.

Rwanda’s traditional wealth creation and distribution system of cow-giving served as a platform for the creation of Girinka.
