A Tour Of Kitwe In Pictures


KitweOnline is proud to bring you another tour of Kitwe in pictures. How long has it been since you walked down our Kitwe streets and along the hedge-lined foot paths between houses in Chamboli or Wusakile? The vibrant sounds of children singing and dancing, bicycle bells ringing, dogs barking, cars hooting and mini bus conductors shouting as they ply their trade,  combine with the smells of "ifisashi" (peanut butter sauce) cooking here and chicken there, to make for an unforgettable experience.

On a hot day, the tranquility of the tree lined tarred surburban streets with tiled house roofs and extensive gardens forms a contrast to the outlying areas.

The city centre roads bursting at the seams as the rush hour traffic craws along is a reminder that Kitwe is not what it used to be. It is a cosmopolitan town with a population of well over half a million people, and growing. 

This is the raw experience of Kitwe. It is not possible to capture the wide range of experiences you can get going around the city. It is possible, however, to capture  snippets of that experience and share it in pictures and video.

If you would like to contribute your experiences and photos of Kitwe, we would like to hear from you. Send us a message in the box below.
