Early this morning HHiSS was in the studio on invitation by HotFM Zambia. This invitation came after 'pressure' by the HHiSS and snakes facebook fanbase, which had grown after Hot FM DJs allegedly said something negative about snakes. It is interesting to note that Zambians are, more and more, advocating AGAINST the killing of snakes and are educating fellow Zambians. That aside: credit should be given to the HotFM team who promptly invited HHiSS for the early morning show. Over a timespan of about 90 minutes various issues regarding snakes were discussed, culminating i a question and answer session with listeners calling in. From the Facebook (@Zamsnakes) response, the talk was informative and successful. That was further illustrated by the dozens of new members joining the Zamsnakes group.
But that wasn't all.
At 10 o'clock HHiSS had an appointment with Mr Andrew Muswala, the editor and managing director of the Travel & Leisure Zambia & Zimbabwe magazine. After a long meeting it was agreed that the two parties enter into a partnership whereby HHiSS will write a 2-page information article about snakes in Zambia for each edition. The money received for this will be used to fund snake sensitisation for children.
This is a new and very exciting avenue for HHiSS! The glossy magazine is sold to many lodges and hotels across the country but also at other outlets, at a very low price (ZMW 55). We hope you will buy an edition now and then to discover the beautiful areas of Zambia and Zimbabwe and on top of that lean about snakes!
