The Association of Zambians in British Columbia once again hosted a successful annual independence dinner party held at Poco Inn in Coquitlam, British Columbia. This year's celebrations were ever the more important with the presence of Zambia's Deputy High Commissioner to Canada Ms. Sylvia Chalikosa, who travelled all the way from Ottawa representing the High Commissioner. Many Zambians living in British Columbia as well as those living in other provinces like Alberta flocked to Poco Inn to attend the event. We were also graced by the presence of friends of Zambia attending the event representing countries such as Zimbabwe, South Africa, Malawio,Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Canada, just to metion a few. During her address, Ms. Chalikosa stressed the importance of Zambians living in the diaspora to taking advantage of the numerous investment opportunities available in Zambia to help develop the nation.

 

This year we had great perfromances from Ritmos Mosaico an Afro-centric drumming group and the Tucheze dance group.

 

Once again DJ Sau did not disappoint as he constantly kept the packed Poco Inn ballroom hall guests on their feet with an array of music catering to the tastes of Zambians and non-Zambians alike.
