 1. Zambia's first president, Kenneth Kaunda, was buried amid controversy over site

"Kaunda's funeral arrangements became the subject of a court challenge after the Zambian government announced plans to inter the late nationalist at a presidential burial site in the capital Lusaka, against the wishes of some of his relatives.

In the court challenge on Tuesday, Kaunda's son Kaweche said the government's plan to bury his father's remains at a presidential burial site was against the African statesman's wishes.

He contended that Kaunda had wanted to be buried next to his late wife Betty at his residence."

2. UK minister confuses Zambia with Zimbabwe at Kenneth Kaunda funeral

"James Duddridge, the UK’s minister for Africa, appeared to confuse Zimbabwe with Zambia in a speech at the funeral of Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia’s founding president and one of Africa’s last surviving liberation leaders, in the country’s capital, Lusaka, last week.

Kaunda, who died last month at the age of 97, ruled Zambia from 1964, when it won independence from Britain, until 1991. He was respected across the continent as one of a generation of Africans who fought to free their nations from colonial rule."

3. Zambia: Under Chinese influence 

"China's presence is visible all over Africa. But nowhere more so than in Zambia, the African nation where it invested the most money last year. The ties between Beijing and Lusaka are strong and have existed for decades. Today, China possesses one-third of Zambia's national debt. It has invested in the mining and industrial sectors, but also in agriculture. Some Zambians denounce this Chinese presence as a form of neo-colonialism." 

4. Enock Mwepu: Zambia star signs for Brighton & Hove Albion from Red Bull Salzburg

"The 23-year-old Chipolopolo midfielder has penned a four-year contract to join Patson Daka in the Premier League.

Zambia international Enock Mwepu has sealed a transfer move to Brighton & Hove Albion from Red Bull Salzburg.

The 23-year-old midfielder has been confirmed as the first signing for manager Graham Potter on a four-year contract ahead of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign, which will be Albion's fifth consecutive year in the top-flight.

“Albion are pleased to confirm the signing of Enock Mwepu from reigning Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg on a four-year deal, on undisclosed terms,” 

5. World Cup hopefuls Zambia sack coach Sredojevic

Zambia have fired Serbian coach Milutin Sredojevic as they prepare for a tough World Cup qualifying programme from September, the national football association confirmed on Sunday.

"The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) can confirm that it has reached a mutual separation agreement with its senior men's national team coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic," a statement said.

"After a meeting between FAZ and the coach it was agreed that in the interest of progress for both parties they had to separate."

6. Zambia must treat children suffering from lead poisoning, clean up former mine area - UN experts

"Zambia must immediately provide medical treatment to thousands of children suffering from lead poisoning, and must take swift steps to clean up areas contaminated by residue from what was once the country’s largest lead mine, UN experts said today.

“More than 25 years after the Kabwe mine and smelter closed, it is scandalous that some 300,000 people still have to live on toxic soil,” the experts said. “Schools, playgrounds, homes and back yards all have high lead levels, so residents are being poisoned on a huge scale, and children are the most vulnerable.”

7. Barbra Banda stakes claim to future despite Zambia's exit

"Zambia have gone out of the Olympic football competition after losing to Brazil. But their captain, Barbra Banda, can look forward to an exciting future after she set the tournament alight.

As they met in the center circle for the coin toss, Brazilian captain Marta and her Zambian counterpart Barbra Banda exchanged fist bumps and knowing smiles.

Marta, 35, arguably the greatest women's player of all time and certainly among the most decorated, could be forgiven for thinking that this was something like a passing of the baton. Talent, after all, can recognize talent, and Banda has shown that she has that in abundance."
