ABOUT

DG Larry’s welcome message to DISCON 2018 delegates

My dear fellow Rotarians, family and friends of Rotary. I am delighted to inform you that The 2018 RI District 9210 Conference will be held from 30th May to 3rd June 2018 in the beautiful Zambian Tourist Resort of SIAVONGA, right on the shores of Lake Kariba, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, and actually at 180km3, it is the largest by volume.  The 223km long lake straddles the Zambia-Zimbabwe border and joins the two sister countries much like siamese twins.

 

But why Siavonga, you might want to ask?  To be honest, if it was up to me, the conference would have been held at every Rotarian’s door step for the simple reason that I don’t want any Rotarian to miss this great annual event!  We are all very aware of the economic challenges we face in our region that make it very difficult to spare a penny for such an activity.  When it became very clear that the conference cannot possibly be held at everyone’s door step, Siavonga stood out as the obvious choice.

 

With a wonderful venue complete with a thousand seater conference hall and 3 ancillary conference rooms, a man-made beach with a capacity of more than 2000 people, more than 100 high quality rooms, three lakeside swimming pools, ample dining facilities, magnificent bars and complimented by an array of lodges and guest houses within close vicinity, Siavonga just had to be it.    The venue is Freshview Homes.  Siavonga is only four hours and two and half hours by road from Harare and Lusaka respectively.  We all have an opportunity to meet, mingle, make new friends and refresh old friendships, exchange ideas and map out strategies to tackle some of our communities’ toughest challenges and still have loads of FUN.

 

On behalf of the organizing committee and indeed on my own behalf, I wish to extend an invitation to you all to come to SIAVONGA for DISCON 2018 and BE THE DIFFERENCE.

Larry Mapani,

DG- District 9210

Past Board Member of Rotary International, Director Don Mebus was invited into the Rotary Club of Arlington, Texas in December of 1974 by his father, past club president, Jerry Mebus. Don’s grandfather, Bob Cooke, was also a past president of the club. Following two stints on the club’s board, Don became club president in 1989 and the club sent him to RI Convention in Seoul Korea. It was an eye-opening experience for him giving him a better understanding of the international impact of Rotary.

Linda Kasonde is a Zambian legal practitioner and partner at Mulenga Mundashi Kasonde Legal Practitioners. She rose to prominence as the first elected President of the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) and for her advocacy of human rights.

In April 2016, Kasonde was elected President of LAZ by the association's members during its fifth annual conference.[1] Over the course of the next two years, she became a well-known figure in Zambia for using her public platform as LAZ president to resolutely defend constitutional democracy, civil liberties and the rule of law. In this role, she attracted occasional controversy as government representatives felt she was overly political, especially when drawing attention to allegations of constitutional violations by the ruling authorities.

With a wonderful venue complete with a thousand seater conference hall and 3 ancillary conference rooms, a man-made beach with a capacity of more than 2000 people, more than 100 high quality rooms, three lakeside swimming pools, ample dining facilities, magnificent bars and complimented by an array of lodges and guest houses within close vicinity, Siavonga just had to be it.   

 

The venue is Freshview Homes.  Siavonga is only four hours and two and half hours by road from Harare and Lusaka respectively.  We all have an opportunity to meet, mingle, make new friends and refresh old friendships, exchange ideas and map out strategies to tackle some of our communities’ toughest challenges and still have loads of FUN.
