  1. It should have been the Lusaka Mayor and Lusaka Province Police commanding officer on this trip and not the entire IG!

  2. Not just police should benefit. You also have to send students from Zambia to go and study in Albuquerque. Since it is a sister city, it shouldn’t be hard for Zambians to study at one or two of the universities.

  3. Albuquerque in Comparison to America and Zambia it can like Shan’gombo. It’s a poor place. They need to do these things with cities like Chicago, Miami, New York or Los Angeles.

    • Albequerque is a large modern city (even by USA standards) with a population of nearly 560,000 (at 2014) and office capacity several orders of magnitude larger than Lusaka. It is a beautiful city straddling the Rio Grande river in South West USA. By population, it is larger than the more famous cities of Atlanta and Miami.

    • Albuquerque is a beautiful city ba @ Lombe. I am sure you have not been there. I would prefer to live there than in NYC as it is very affordable, like many Texas cities.

  4. Why is there silence on the IG’s order on Police Officers not to marry foreigners? Has this been accepted by all and sundry? An order clearly breaching human rights – and the IG is out there gallivanting nonchalantly.

  5. This trip won’t change anything about Lusaka, we just need to change our attitudes towards development and civilization.
    The answer lies within ourselves.

  6. Xenophobic police chief goes to xenophobic Trump’s country for some tips on how to police the borders. Will come back and advise Lungu to build a wall round Zambia’s borders

  7. Kanganja should not have been cleared to go to the USA. he is a disgrace and the blood of Mapenzi is still on his head. For the mayor, he is just going to make some allowances. Lusaka is a mess. It is twined with other cities but they have never learned from other cities and the other cities must really be ashamed to be identified with such a filthy city. Look at Soweto market which is like a pigs tine. Only a black man can allow people to trade in such a n environment. Look at the latest dashcam Lusaka videos passing through Kuku or Chawama etc by Lopez and you will see that our civic leaders in Lusaka have no brains

    • We have a lot of lowlife in high places in Zambia. That’s the problem. You cannot expect a person who stayed in Chawama to appreciate how a city like Lusaka or a whole country can be progressive, clean and upwardly mobile. Instead he brings his gutter life to everybody because that’s all he knows.
