First Woman President in Africa

President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf was voted in as the first woman president in Liberia. She also happens to be the first woman president in Africa. Some quotes from her innaugural speech:

“It is time for us, regardless of our political affiliations or persuasions, to come together to heal and rebuild our nation”

“This is not change for change’s sake but a fundamental break from the past”

How would Zambiaget back into ownership by the Government of Zambia? You may or may not remember a Virtual Countries, Inc. verses Republic of South Africa lawsuit regarding the domain name and how the Republic of South Africa demanded the domain name from the registrants. Unliked this approach, I believe the country should rather take the more amicable way yet constantly run into an ethical dilemma on right of ownership. Am I even right in considering that this should be worth trying for as my only basis for argument is that the domain is currently used merely as a placeholder for various advertisements. Shouldn’t such a valuable domain name be used for helping a country that is trying to ride a new wave of development? Do you even need a domain name to promote new initiatives from the country when you really should let these initiatives speak for themselves? Thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
