Jack: Where free land reigned

WOMEN and children in Jack township line up for water at the Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company water point.

LOCATED in Kamulanga ward nine in Chawama is yet another popular Lusaka township called Jack.
A peaceful township whose history is tied to Zambia’s immediate post-independence era, one of its oldest residents is Petro Mulwazi, who first arrived in Jack township from Choma town in 1966.
Initially, he left Choma for Lusaka after the white man he cooked for was transferred.
Age has affected his hearing, and so I constantly repeat some of my questions to him as we sit under a very shady tree in his yard.
He tells me his white boss was a manager at National Milling Company (NMC), then called Shapiro Milling Company, and not long after Mr Mulwazi moved to Lusaka, he began looking for another job.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
