  1. iv often wandered why no motor vehicles, at least to my knowledge, ever catch fire due to bush fires raging closely on the side of the road as in pic 13 above?

  8. #12 Observer, you are allowed to be controversial but you may have an of identity issue if you think your own people are unattractive.

    How do you view yourself? Are you unattractive because you are Zambian or you are ashamed to be Zambian and therefore feel unattractive?

    Please, see a psychologist before you start altering yourself to look like people from other nations. Look what happened to Michael Jackson.

  14. !2. I dont think ur being controversail except that i doubt that u can substantiate your statement. When you say ‘Zambians generally not attractive’ that is a very subjective comment. Whereas we can all agree that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, can also agree that there is natural beauty. Are you saying compared to other nationals, Zambian lack this natural beauty (attractiveness) and that it is more prevalent in other national? I have had a chance to visit many African any I usually end up telling myself, ‘atleast my country men are attractive’!. But then iv also know that Im not able to make an objective opinion. At the end of the day, beauty (or in this case attractiveness) is over rated. It will not get you anywhere (except maybe in someone’s bed)

  15. Pic #1-5, much as that rally seem exciting, it is very dangerous for the spectators. The organizers should consider physically putting up parameters for the safety of the driver and the spectators. Thats an accident waiting to happen. The rally’s name should be changed to International Drag Racing because thats what it looks like to me! The Sunday market looks like a gold mine. I love most of the stuff they are selling. Pic #18, I thought Leprosy was a Bible disease. #12 Observer, funny, I have been thinking the same too! .

  16. guys chill… i wasnt talkin anyone in particular its jus an observation that i have made (excuse the pun). Personally i kno am quite attractive m not at all ashamed of my looks. i have the courage to hit on any girl…. bt back to the issue, so guys jus comment objectively ur thots without being insulting.

  17. a little background…. i was out having dinner with three young ladies (workmates) here in jozy. so we were talkin abt wich country has the most attractive people. wat came out of the discussioin was that angola and mozambique have the most attractive ladies. bt in the whole lengthy discussion Zambia didnt feature. wen i was in zed recently i hardly saw a girl who made me turn my head as they do here… even at manda hill!!! its not to say that zambians are ugly jus maybe not striking!! thats y i asked earlier that is it bcoz of poverty?

  26. Ghost Dog #29, i wont even comment on your assertion as it can only have been meant as a joke – no other plausible reason. As for Observer and Bra P, you are perfectly entitled to your views. But they are just that, your views. “… y are zambians generally not attractive i mean interms of looks as compared to other nations, is it poverty?” This question cannot be answered properly because you pose it as if it is universally accepted (fact) that Zambians are not attractive and now you want people to comment on reasons. P.s Hitting on any girl you like does not mean you are attractive, it may only mean that you are confident, and there is a thin line between confidence no bushilu.

  28. Observer. The other contributing factor to your lopsided observation is that we live in different cultures. What you may call fashion dressing here where I am can best be described as nakedness back home. Young ladies and middle aged women here are comfortable wearing tight jeans and short skirts with a marching blouse barely covering the umbilicus. Our women wear vitenge. No expose, lest you risk being stripped naked right in the middle of town.

  32. #12 is that the best contribution you can come up with? If you have nothing useful to say please just let the LT topic pass, there might just be something else in tomorrow’s topics, that you may have useful words to say. Have a good day and leave this topic for the real Zambians who have sense. We understand some LT topics are above your understanding. Zambians on this blog have better issues to discuss than your useless observation. Who cares what you think?

  46. We have beautiful girls in Zambia come on, it depends on a lot of things how people look like. Some girls are nice and others are not. That is just the way things are. As a Zambian man, I have never had a problem attracting woman of all nationalities and different ages. I remember meeting a mature Zambian woman who knows my dad, she said something like “wow you are so handsome just like your father!” The most messed up thing I have experienced however, is a fellow man trying to chat me up because I was ” good looking” hahahahaha, I can tell you life is great for me, if I could rent out my body, you would know what I am trying to say. So if any of you are ugly that is your problem, blame your parents. I can tell you so many stories about my life so far but it will be long post.

  51. OBSERVER what an apologetic life you must live! You sound like the kid who was always at pains to hide their parents, where they live etc. Your lack of self confidence has now grown to include the whole nation, how sad!! Whether we are mentioned or not, Zambians are beautiful and I can give several examples. And who, among your workmates did you expect to add us to the list if you yourself were being all apologetic and i guess praying they don’t remember your nationality!? Inferiority complex ensures that everything looks amazing except your own. And if you must know, a good number of those women you see with top South African men are Zambian…I speak as an insider. Hundreds if not thousands of the SA chicks you obsess about have Zambian mothers and gogos…sorry to burst your bubble…

  53. # 28 Ba Osberver, Manda Hill is for our children please dont molest them.From yr observation of Angola and Mozy I take it you are a point five (half mwenye, half muntu) and that is why you find portugese beauty strinking. In order for you to appreciate Zambian beauty you have to be born and bred in Zambia coz our beauty is more than just skin deep. We have culture and morals which we display at all times. If you want to see attractive Zambian women, visit the churches, places of work and homes.Too bad for you right now all we attractive Zambian women are spoken for so bro move on.. as for you being attractive and good looking, thats your view.. beauty is in the eye…….

  59. Observer.It is called a black man’s slave mentality.Ask yourselves why most successful black men marry white women or mixed race or those who have very fair skin?Because their white masters brainwashed their minds to think that black is ugly.It’s amazing how the niggers would do any thing for a light skinned woman…even worship her! In the UK it is the opposite,the white bloke finds the darkest woman intriguing!They fancy the likes of Naomi Cambell,Iman and Whoopi Gordberg because they find them authentic like dark chocolate.

  61. Observer I Don’t think you have encountered a lot of zambians to make such an assumption. If you bump into a few dustheads in no way does that account for the whole nation.try spending 6 months in zed and I guarantee you will be amazed at how many beauties you will run into. Maybe your standards of judging beauty depend on one’s wealth status but to be frank with you zed people are not ugly .

    remember Zambia is the only country u originated from. Start by being proud of yourselves otherwise you gonna end-up belonging nowhere.
    Observer get more education and move around the u gona get the insight of what the world offers. Have confidence bro that “infiliority” complex will make your life more miserable were ever u will be as your mind will be telling u that u are the most ugly person in the group.

  83. The Republic of Zambia (pronounced /?zæmbi?/) is a landlocked country in Southern Africa. The neighbouring countries are the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west. The capital city is Lusaka, located in the southeast of the country. The population is concentrated mainly around the capital Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt to the northwest.

  84. Zambia has been inhabited for thousands of years by hunter-gatherers and migrating tribes. After sporadic visits by European explorers starting in the 18th century, Zambia was gradually claimed and occupied by the British as protectorate of Northern Rhodesia towards the end of the nineteenth century. On 24 October 1964, the protectorate gained independence with the new name of Zambia, derived from the Zambezi river which flows through the country. After independence the country moved towards a system of one party rule with Kenneth Kaunda as president. Kaunda dominated Zambian politics until multiparty elections were held in 1991.

  85. Zambia’s economy has been traditionally dominated by the copper mining industry; however, the government has recently been pursuing an economic diversification programme. During the 1970s, the country began sliding into a poverty from which it has not recovered. Zambia’s total foreign debt before HIPC completion exceeded $6 billion in 2000. The average per capita income is US $1150 (World Bank, 2008). About 60 % of the population are reportedly living on less than one dollar 25 cent per day. [5]

  87. The area of modern Zambia was inhabited by Khoisan hunter-gatherers until around AD 300, when technologically-advanced migrating tribes began to displace or absorb them.[6] In the 12th century, major waves of Bantu-speaking immigrants arrived during the Bantu expansion. Among them, the Tonga people (also called Batonga) were the first to settle in Zambia and are believed to have come from the east near the “big sea”. The Nkoya people also arrived early in the expansion, coming from the Luba-Lunda kingdoms located in the southern parts of the modern Democratic Republic of the Congo and northern Angola, followed by a much larger influx, especially between the late 12th and early 13th centuries. In the early 18th century, the Nsokolo people settled in the Mbala district of Northern…

  88. The earliest account of a European visiting the area was Francisco de Lacerda in the late 18th century, followed by other explorers in the 19th century. The most prominent of these was David Livingstone, who had a vision of ending the slave trade through the “3 C’s” (Christianity, Commerce and Civilisation). He was the first European to see the magnificent waterfalls on the Zambezi River in 1855, naming them Victoria Falls after Queen Victoria. Locally the falls are known “Mosi-oa-Tunya” or “(the) thundering smoke” (in the Lozi or Kololo dialect). The town of Livingstone, near the falls, is named after him. Highly publicised accounts of his journeys motivated a wave of explorers, missionaries and traders after his death in 1873.

  89. In 1888, the British South Africa Company, (BSA Company) led by Cecil Rhodes, obtained mineral rights from the Litunga, the king of the Lozi for the area which later became North-Western Rhodesia.[7] To the east, King Mpezeni of the Ngoni resisted but was defeated in battle[8] and that part of the country came to be known as North-Eastern Rhodesia. The two were administered as separate units until 1911 when they were merged to form Northern Rhodesia. In 1923, the Company ceded control of Northern Rhodesia to the British Government after the government decided not to renew the Company’s charter.

  90. That same year, Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), which was also administered by the BSA Company, became self-governing. In 1924, after negotiations, administration of Northern Rhodesia transferred to the British Colonial Office. In 1953, the creation of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland grouped together Northern Rhodesia, Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland (now Malawi) as a single semi-autonomous region. This was undertaken despite opposition from a sizeable minority of Africans, who demonstrated against it in 1960-61.[9] Northern Rhodesia was the centre of much of the turmoil and crisis characterizing the federation in its last years. Initially, Harry Nkumbula’s African National Congress (ANC) led the campaign that Kenneth Kaunda’s United National Independence Party (UNIP)…

  92. A two-stage election held in October and December 1962 resulted in an African majority in the legislative council and an uneasy coalition between the two African nationalist parties. The council passed resolutions calling for Northern Rhodesia’s secession from the federation and demanding full internal self-government under a new constitution and a new National Assembly based on a broader, more democratic franchise. The federation was dissolved on 31 December 1963, and in January 1964, Kaunda won the first and only election for Prime Minister of Northern Rhodesia. The Colonial Governor, Sir Evelyn Hone, was very close to Kaunda and urged him to stand for the post. Soon afterwards there was an uprising in the north of the country known as the Lumpa Uprising led by Alice Lenshina –…

  93. At independence, despite its considerable mineral wealth, Zambia faced major challenges. Domestically, there were few trained and educated Zambians capable of running the government, and the economy was largely dependent on foreign expertise. There were 70,000 Europeans in Zambia in 1964.[10] Three neighbouring countries – Angola, Mozambique and Southern Rhodesia – remained under colonial rule. Southern Rhodesia’s white-ruled government unilaterally declared independence in November 1965. In addition, Zambia shared a border with South West Africa (Namibia) which was administered by South Africa. Zambian sympathies lay with forces opposing colonial or white-dominated rule, particularly in Southern Rhodesia (subsequently called Rhodesia). During the next decade, it actively supported…

  95. Conflict with Rhodesia resulted in the closure of the border with that country in 1973 and severe problems with international transport and power supply. However, the Kariba hydroelectric station on the Zambezi River provided sufficient capacity to satisfy the country’s requirements for electricity (despite the fact that the control centre was on the Rhodesian side of the border). A railway to the Tanzanian port of Dar es Salaam, built with Chinese assistance, reduced Zambian dependence on railway lines south to South Africa and west through an increasingly troubled Angola. Until the completion of the railway, however, Zambia’s major artery for imports and the critical export of copper was along the TanZam Road, running from Zambia to the port cities in Tanzania. A pipeline for oil was…

  96. By the late 1970s, Mozambique and Angola had attained independence from Portugal. Zimbabwe achieved independence in accordance with the 1979 Lancaster House Agreement, however Zambia’s problems were not solved. Civil war in the former Portuguese colonies created an influx of refugees and caused continuing transportation problems. The Benguela railway, which extended west through Angola, was essentially closed to traffic from Zambia by the late 1970s. Zambia’s strong support for the ANC, which had its external headquarters in Lusaka, created security problems as South Africa raided ANC targets in Zambia.

  98. In the mid-1970s, the price of copper, Zambia’s principal export, suffered a severe decline worldwide. In Zambia’s situation, the cost of transporting the copper great distances to market was an additional strain. Zambia turned to foreign and international lenders for relief, but, as copper prices remained depressed, it became increasingly difficult to service its growing debt. By the mid-1990s, despite limited debt relief, Zambia’s per capita foreign debt remained among the highest in the world

  107. The company, ZCCM, was formed by a gradual process of nationalization and corporate concatenation which began in January 1970; the process is more completely described in the article Economy of Zambia:

    A major switch in the structure of Zambia’s economy came with the Mulungushi Reforms of April 1968: the government declared its intention to acquire equity holdings (usually 51% or more) in a number of key foreign-owned firms, to be controlled by a parastatal conglomerate named the Industrial Development Corporation (INDECO).Industrial Development Corporation (INDECO). By January 1970, Zambia had acquired majority holding in the Zambian operations of the two major foreign mining corporations, the Anglo American Corporation and the Rhodesia Selection Trust (RST); the two became the…

Western Style Democracy has failed, it is time for Zambia to embrace communism, it is the only way forward otherwise we are doomed with the capitalists who have taken over our country in the name of democracy. Reclaim your country before it is too late, join the Zambia Communist Party now. ZCP is the future, we will be holding a press conference at freedom statue, it is time to free Zambia from capitalist criminals. Zambia needs a political revolution and ZCP will liberate Zambia from the the fake democrats.
