    • They do not want to split; they want equalization- the same one demanded by all rural provinces. Equalization means all the provinces have access to jobs, roads, schools, hospitals etc. an example of equal distribution of resources is the Canadian Federation where the federal government evens out the differences by allocating extra resources to needy provinces.

    • Very uninformed… I’m wondering if this is Kaizar Zulu masquerading as Tarino Orange. Barotse Agreement of 1964 (BA’64) was abrogated by KK’s Zambia. And it wasn’t about cessation or splitting but rather about self governance and decentralisation. Please get your facts straight.

    • It is clear as day that I have angered some lozis here. I am just asking a genuine question with no malice intended.

      My account has been cloned so much that some of you think I am a clone. The clone is using my other picture. I have disabled my profile to prevent cloning. So click on my picture and my profile should say disabled

    • Please ignore this shameless clone with too much time on its hands..just remember it never leaves the site and craves attention and interaction but has not got the brain to engage when it is absent that means its playing silly games.

    • Jigga Kayama Simangulungwa – These are shameless individuals who would steal your unwashed under garments to feel like you.

    • Looks like my clone is getting better at importing. It now has over 6 years experience of cloning me. How sad is its life.

  1. It’s a very sad development. He was a good man. My brief interaction with him was cordial. He was a gentleman of great wisdom. He was the deputy Chair of the Mung’omba Constitution review commission. He was also at one time KK’s deputy at UNIP. Condolences to the family and the people of Mwandi

  2. You need to define this equalisation properly. This far Zambia has had development that follows commercial prospects. Thats why necessary infrastructure such as roads, rail Powerlines etc are found only in Southern, Central and Copperbelt provinces. Since the Dar port has been under-utilised the rail and road infra-structure has likewise been in poor shape. Canada runs a federal government. Zambia doesnt. It is trying to create some CDF govt which we are yet to audit

  3. He was Permanent secretary in southern province in the 60’s and 70’s.and was based in livingstone Town.I went to the same primary school in livingstone @Nalituwe primary School in 1971 with one of his children. The school was about a mile from Hill crest secondary school and a mile from the permanent secretary’s residence. Really very nice family. MHSRIP
