What about Rhodes park? is it just me or does someone else feel nauseated by this name? I mean Cecil Rhodes, come on. this is a man who advocated "equal rights for all Civilized Men south of the Zambezi" we all know what he emant by civilized men. why don't we just name it Ian Smith park.

[quote="Sanni"]Dear Zambia,

In the past three weeks I have driven to Livingstone and the Copperbelt and was astounded at the lack of road signs, especially enroute to the Copperbelt.

The L/stone route is okay once you branch off at the Kafue turn-off (there are road signs all along the way telling you how many kms to go to reach the next town etc). The problem is if you are going to L/stone for the first time and dont have a road map, you wouldnt know that you have to branch off at Kafue. I know some friends of mine from abroad who continued to drive straight on the Kafue road past the turn-off and had to turn back after they asked directions, this after driving for 1 hour the wrong way.

Lusaka to Kitwe, after Kabwe was something else. No signs to tell you which town you are in, until you see an address on a shop building. No sign to tell you that you have reached the Luanshya turn-off (especially when you are coming from Kitwe). No sign to show you which road to take when you are at the turn-off which has a criss-cross of roads. When coming back from Kitwe, we ended up taking the wrong road and started going towards Ndola instead of Lusaka, till we asked for directions. Really confusing and a waste of fuel.

Surely GRZ can put up some road signs on these highways for the benefit of travellers.

My advice to anyone travelling by road to a town they have not been to before, is... Take a MAP![/quote]
