    Ok. But which is the source of this poverty? In this view, I believe that UN have to play a vry strong role in this the most dificult problem of all of the human history. It is a very large gape between the developed country and the poor contries. This last contries have not histori, have not tradition, have not culture. Finaly, we can saythat this coutries have not a base on that they can start the grwon in the economic area. They have no future and, if UN and other international institution mime further thei “contribution” to thr development of this country, notgink will be done.


    I am amazed that you can place such nonsense on the internet. Check the CIA Fact Book and it will tell you that Zambia has a GDP per capita of US$1,800, twice that of Malawi at US$900 and three times that of Somalia at US$600. And you can say Zambia a middle income country is the poorest in the world. You must be a bunch of pitiful retards.

    Total rubbish. Stop using kindergarten methods to analyse global economies and misleading people.

    Zambia’s annual GDP growth is above other sub Saharan countries, 60% not 86% of people are below the poverty line and it was reclassified from a low income country to middle income country in July 2011. It has continued to show positive economic growth and has an international credit rating of B.

    bogus and stupid report! Zambia is by far not close to be branded a poorest country. why do you even report in matters were you’re ignorant of? I invite you to come to Zambia and check it for yourself asshole

  • Namukulo Mwauluka

    This article is very laughable and misleading. It refers to the Human Development Index (HDI) as an objective measure of a countries development but fails to acknowledge that Zambia is among the countries that has a medium of 0.561(source: Zambia is certainly not the worlds poorest country. The percentage of people living in poverty in Zambia is 60.5% and not 86%. Kindly correct this article as you are misleading the WORLD!

    Mr Udoh obviously has an agenda.This report is not a UNDP report; it is a report made up by Which Country using criteria known only to themselves. The actual UNDP HDI report is totally different. See Type ‘Zambia’ in the box on the left of the graph which says ‘Type a Country’ and you will see on the graph on the right where Zambia lies. It is not at the bottom.
