The Mushala rebellion, between 1976 and 1982, was an isolated but significant event in the history of dissence in Zambia. For it was not only an embarrassment to the Zambian government but was part of the South African government's policy of destabilisation of her neighbours. However Zambian government attributes the rebellion to the refusal by President Kennath Kaunda to offer Mushala the directorship of the game and fisheries. Kaunda said, ‘I don’t know what I did to Mushala. Maybe because I rejected his request for directorship of game and fisheries’. But Mushala was an avowed anti-Marxist. Adamson Bratson Musanda Mushala waged a lone war neither supported by external or internal forces. Yet he survived for seven years! However, this book has been written to find out whether or not this fifth rebellion in North-Western Zambia could and should not be avoided.
