Long way to Zambia

writing (Feb 21) about the Halfway man who is a radio hit halfway around the world, you say Zambia is part of South Africa. These are two different countries.

Zambia was originally Northern Rhodesia and changed its name in the 60s. Having lived there I can say that it is a long way from South Africa, to be precise more than 1200 km or 748 miles from Lusaka to Johannesburg. This should have read Southern Africa.

As far as Fulwood passengers are concerned, I do not know anybody who said they want fewer buses, less choice and an extremely unreliable service.
