Zambia
   has the capital   
Lusaka
While forming Northern Rhodesia in the 1890s, the area in which Lusaka is situated was taken over by the British South Africa Company from the local chiefs. The city was founded in 1905 and was named after David Livingstone, the Scots explorer. After the federation of Northern and Southern Rhodesia took place in 1953, Lusaka was a hub of the civil-disobedience movement in 1960 that led to the creation of the independent state of Zambia, Lusaka becoming the capital. In 1976 the city and its surrounding became a province.
