  1. #17 I don’t believe what I am seeing. Ronnie was one of the guys that tore Chiluba’s credibility to pieces during Mwanawasa’s pursuit of the nation’s wealth plunderers and now to see him almost prostrate himself before Chiluba is incredible. Damn, these Politicians!

  2. @ #5, Politicians have no morals at all. This shikapwasha uttered mountains of bad words against Kafupi but see the hypocrisy in his eyes.He is a traitor to the Zambians and need to be chucked out of leadership this year

  3. pic 20, how do we know that is queen lmary avenue? I can not even see any signs of road.

  4. LT Picture 20 may be a copyright breach because I am sure it is taken from the Northern Rhodesians web site. Please check it out.

  5. @ Mo Taim you should have stated you post in this format, congratulations Esther tsunami punch Phiri. Zambia’s greatest ever boxer and athlete. Blessings prayers for our lady and sister. Then below :-

  6. Congratulations to Kennedy Kanyanta for winning the intercontinental belt and Hastings Bwalya for fighting and opening up for her ladyship Esther Duchess Phiri. It was a good day for Zambian sports on Sports results with Aron Gumra ( remember that show ? ).

  7. Good morning,

    Great day for Zambian boxing indeed. Well done folks! Keep hitting them hard and make sure that you get your punches worth in money. Save that paper stash for the hard times. You’ll need it.
    A lot of boxers have ended up as broke as a church mouse after their glory days were over.

    pic #13 isn’t it a bit ironic that there seems to be enough funds to construct such oppulent office buildings but obviously no funds for the construction & maintenance of the roads?

    pic #20 Gee whee.. Lusaka really looked bare in 1933. More of those old pics please.

  8. Mulungushi conference center and Lusaka international airport should have been the ones to look like the new building since they bring money through international conferences,visa and landing fees.That new house will only be a user of funds not a generator of funds.

  9. # 20 That is indeed Lusaka Queen Mary’s Avenue. I remember that ka tree and I’m sure most of you do. Its the 34Th tree on the left when you are heading in a south easterly direction from the Fire Brigade.

  10. #18 blessings do you really have that extra-ordinary memory to nail down every detail you see or are you just pulling our legs?

  11. Picture 8 – Oh snap! A fellow Man Utd fan nabbed in treason case.

    On a serious note though does the RB led government really think these guys (even a 90 year old shikulu) are capable of serious treason?

  12. Blogger 19 you have too much time on your hands. You went to count those trees on Church road?
    And you were counting in the wrong place at the fire brigade. You should have been looking east from rigdeway hotel

  13. # 20 – it could have been nice if LT inserted a present day picture of the same location for us to compare and contrast. nice pic
