THE year 2013 marks 200 years anniversary of the birth of David Livingstone. Zambia in partnership with its neighbouring countries has embarked on the commemoration of the bi-centenary with major planned events. These includes some cultural and sporting events, as well as an international arts exhibition. The event which is being held in Livingstone was launched between his actual birthday on 19th March and Independence Day in October 2013.
PREPARATIONS for the forth coming United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) General Assembly have intensified as the council in the tourist capital receives moneys for various developmental projects. Livingstone City Council (LCC) Acting Public Relations Manager Emmanuel Sikanyika said in an interview with the Lusaka Star that LCC has received K118 Billion from the government to rehabilitate and construct about 20 roads in Livingstone.
