26 July Meetup Recap: Zambia Votes 2016

On Wednesday, 26 July, thirteen citizens (actually twelve Zambian citizens and a researcher from the London School of Economics) made their way to BongoHive to talk about social media and politics. Zambia is just days away from going to the polls. How has social media made an impact on this election in comparison to times past?

Many regulars joined the discussion and we are always excited about how many people come to our WordPress meetups for the first time. This week we had Bornwell and Accra among others.

This was by far the most animated discussion we’ve had at a Meetup. Opinions flowed passionately and eloquently. Zambians are a smart and opinionated bunch!

Here are some of the highlights (you can see #WPLSK and #ZambiaVotes2016 on Titter for more) …


Hope you are able to make it to our next meetup.

Keep blogging!
