  1. Nice pic, manje picture #9 is that an office furniture sure? looks like mu garage and i can imagine Amos saying this chair should be out of this office right now the way he is pointing hahhahha. I like IG appointment by president Sata, thats really women empowerment in key positions.

    • Not women empowerment. Appointments are supposed to be done on merit. We have to talk of recognition of women’s capabilities. If its empowerment, then we are in danger of appointing ‘lemons’ just to empower.

  3. Pic #1, Well, what can one say?
    Pics 3,4,5, Those caps don’t look right on women police officers, why not try a design like those worn by British female officers?
    Pics 11, 12, 13, That’s what we should be proud of in Zambia, youngsters being exposed to technology and progress. Very refreshing indeed.
    Pics 14 & 15, What a contrast to the last 3 pictures above, can that be called a sports stadium?

  17. To glare at something is to look at it angrily or with contempt, now why, LT, would that poor man in pic 16 look at the trophy in such a way?? Do you perhaps think he wished he had scored the winning goal? Sometimes sticking to simple use of the English language can make a story just as newsworthy as using – a lot better than misusing fancy words!!!!! GLARINGLY obvious I might add

  21. #1, there is no fair way of playing on that pool table. a touch embarrasing to be Zambian.

    #14, that waste land is what they call a ‘sports stadium’ in Kasama, and people here are always envious of monkies? If that is how their land is, then where do they take the money they steal…..i think this might be a lesson that stealing does not pay. Bemba’s all that theft now look at how desolate kasama is?

  22. Enjoying the pics and having a good laugh at the comments as usual. The living conditions may be rough but Zambians always manage to put a smile on their face. The people in the villages appear to be more contented than those in the city. The poor man’s heaven is the rich man’s hell.

  23. That is not the real trophy! It is a replica! Usually they have a couple of replicas for people to view and touch! Can you risk an expensive piece of kit, parading it in rural Zambia? Hell no!

  29. #39 that is not South Africa.One South Africans are light in complexion two, they colour their huts in bright colours three, south africans are not that creative.They would rather cry for a real pool table which they hope Mandela to donate or cry that they are previously disadvantaged and some guilty white guy would quickly donate a pool table.

  35. # 52 it’s quite the oposite; it just shows how clever and a show case of their ingenuity.

    You and I see how kids in the diaspora waste time either on PS3 or Xbox all day long or complain that there is nothing to do, but the kids in the picture didn’t. They went out and built a pool table…out of mad!

    It reminds me of how my brother and I made wire cars – I think it’s brilliant!

  36. Picture 1: now that’s proper use of one’s imagination. The villager that made it deserves an award and perhaps some sort of scholarship. Who knows, these village pool players could actually be untapped geniuses and inventors. Brilliant!

    • @5.1 Munsanje, apparently we’re not ‘backwards’ , but just poor. we cannot afford a pool table for the guys in pic 1. Been backwards would have meant not knowing what a pool table is and not having any means of making one…like the case of the bottle in ‘the gods must be crazy’. Those techs in pic 1 surely know what a pool table is and have made one, lol!

  37. The pictures and the comments are Gold… just brilliant!
    Have to agree Pic # 1 is creativity at its best… probably not ‘innovation’ or ‘invention’ since the idea of a pool table is not new. Either great stuff.

    @ Nubian: ‘The balls are impwa na kasongole’; ‘ kolokodailo’… hahaha, amazing sense of humour :)

    I didn’t know Crocs could be termed like that… I would be shyt scared standing next to those man eaters :(
