Lusaka has to change

VIOLET MENGO, Lusaka
IT IS safe to say Lusaka, the smallest province in the country, is also the most problematic in the country.
Home to the capital city, Lusaka Province comprises Lusaka City, Chilanga, Kafue, Chirundu, Chongwe, Rufunsa and Luangwa.
The capital city has grown rapidly since the 1930s. Its selection as the capital city in 1935 was due to its central location on the main north-south axis of the railway line which was expected to become the centre of development.
However, the original plan did not provide for other economic activities other than government administration, domestic and menial services. But according to records, the government planner responsible for implementation of the plan, J.T. Bowling, modified the original plan and provided for light and heavy industrial areas.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
