Introduction: Zambia

Description of Zambia

Zambia: A republic in southern Africa, south of DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO and TANZANIA, and north of ZIMBABWE. Its capital is Lusaka. It was formerly called Northern Rhodesia. Under the jurisdiction of the British South Africa Company 1889-1924, it became a British Protectorate in 1924, then part of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland 1953-63. It became an independent republic in 1964. The country takes its name from the Zambezi River flowing through it, the fourth longest on the continent. Za (river) also gave its name to Zaire. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1370 & Room, Brewers' Dictionary of Names, 1992, p608).
