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.
