The indigenous Zambian languages spoken are: Bemba, Nyanja, Tonga, Lozi, Lunda, Kaonde and Luvale. In fact, about 90 percent of Zambians belong to these groups.
There are also other small language groups such as Ila, Mambwe, Namwanga, Tumbuka, Aushi, Lenje, Lala and Lamba, and so many others!
Just imagine, over 70 different languages have been identified in Zambia! One wouldnt be faulted to think that because of this diversity of languages the country would be plunged into conflicts. But far from it! Strangely enough the country has been a haven of peace since independence in 1964!
Contributing to the peace which Zambia has enjoyed is the One Zambia One Nation slogan coined by the first Zambian president, Dr. Kenneth Kaunda .
Another contributing factor is the Zambian Official language, which happens to be English. With this selection, no particular tribe feels superior to others.
The coming together of different people from different tribal backgrounds to urban centers and the mines on the copperbelt has contributed to the developing of a gregarious and friendly atmosphere. This has led to people marrying across tribal lines, which was not common before.
It is worth noting here that all languages are spoken in almost all provinces, but they are specifically prominent in certain areas
