AIDS in Africa
Katongo Maine sits in the study of her four-bedroom farmhouse. She is reading the National Mirror, a weekly religious newspaper published in the Zambian capital, Lusaka, about 15 miles away.
"These headlines are really disturbing," she says, referring to three reports on "the curse that has wreaked havoc on our society."
Katongo looks out across lawns still green despite the current dry season and early morning temperatures not much above the freezing point. Red flame trees flare in the winter sunlight. In the distance are fields where she grows maize (corn), paprika, lemon grass, and "bird's-eye" chilis.
