I see reports that Uncle Sam is not happy about recent court cases in Lusaka.

I lived in Zambia in the 1970s. Hence my interest. I have children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren there.

I think I mentioned this on another thread, that a Barlow cousin of mine lived in what is now Zambia for several years between 1948 and 1972, probably just before your time there. (Well, a second-cousin once removed, but I met him in England late in his life and we became friends.) He began his working life there as Assistant Chief Secretary in 1948, and became Secretary to the Bishop of Northern Rhodesia in 1958. Before his African adventure he'd been in the Political section of the Indian Civil Service, which I think was a kind of MI-5 job (or MI-6).

I have another second-cousin-once-removed living in Zimbabwe. That's about where my interest begins and ends, really. (I've never met her, but I phoned her up once when she was in Texas visiting her daughters. All in the cause of family-history.)

Colonial Office wallahs were often involved in spook-type work Ditto for those working in India.
