Kitwe is a town located in the Copper Belt Province of Zambia in Central Africa. The Copperbelt consists of 10 districts (Kitwe, Mufulira, Chingola, Chililabombwe, Ndola, Luanshya, Masaiti, Mpongwe, Kalulushi and Lufwanyama ) and is located over a copper-rich mineral seam in a mountain range that runs from Zambia into DR Congo to the north.

The local traditional Chief Nkana of the Lamba people, gave his permission for the exploration and exploitation of Copper ore in the 1930s. His successor, Senior Chief Nkana the seventh(Godfrey Shamanenga), oversees his kingdom from his palace near Kalulushi to this date.

Kitwe is a metropolitan town with Zambians from far flung towns like Solwezi, Choma, Mongu, Mazabuka, Chipata, Lundazi, Mansa, Kasama, Kawambwa, and Lusaka all drifting here in search of work in the mines, in industry and in the civil service. This is why virtually all 73 Zambian languages are represented in Kitwe with its population of over 500,000.

The languages spoken in Kitwe include Lamba, Bemba, Kaonde, Lozi, Lunda, Luvale, Lunda and Nyanja, etc. It is also home to one of the largest populations of foreign nationals in Zambia.

Zambians are a welcoming and warm-hearted people, and Kitwe inhabitants are no exception. The population continues to grow as more people join this vibrant community.
