Author: Mick Bond

Year Published: 2014



The birth of a new nation is an exciting time. Mick Bond spent the years 1962-73 as a District Officer and District Commissioner, actively participating in the demise of the colonial regime as a civil servant in independent Zambia. He fell in love with the country and it’s people.

This detailed account of his life and work includes the daily routine of a colonial officer (including a complete village-to-village tour report), his personal experiences of the 1964 lumpa conflict and his involvement in the elections of 1962, 1968 and 1973. It is fascinating in its descriptions and perceptive comments on the transition through the early years of independence, it is a valuable addition to Zambia’s history.
