    Namulambe has been fired
    ………………………….. in my Government.
    Jere said the President will announce the replacement of Namulambe later.

  3. Sad indeed. I swam at this spot more than 20 years ago and man eating crocodiles were the biggest threat. And I also visited this place in Dec 2007.

  4. LT, YOUR REPORTING LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED. YOU MEAN YOU CAN’T GIVE US A PICTURE OF LAKE BANGWEULU. HOW DOES ONE IMAGIN WHERE ONE DRAWNED AND HOW SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS THE LAKE IS, OR TO AVOID DRAWNING ONCE THERE? REALLY, DO HAVE TO, SEPERATELY, GO BACK TO SCHOOL TO GO AND LEARN THAT A PICTURE TALKS MILLIONS OF WORDS. IN ANY CASE LAKE BANGWEULU IS BECOMING A WORLD’s TOURIST DESTINATION HERE OVERSEAS-you better start respecting that fact.
