As a white man living in Zambia, who likes Zambian women, I would like to ask one thing. What is it with begging money from men ? Why do Zambian women think it is normal behaviour to beg for Talktime or ask for money or send SMSs or phone calls (especially on Tuesday when the buy get 1 pizza special is on) from men they have just met ? Frankly I find myself in the embarrassing situation of having to refuse these normally very polite and beautiful women. I would also like to know why do Zambian women think that if you are in any relationship with them then you essentially become a piggy bank to be emptied of any spare cash ? I would like to know why if you buy something or send a Zambian girl to buy something for you almost certainly the change will be gone ?
As much as…I like women as much as any man, I get surprised by the number of Zambian women who throw themselves at any man who is white. It can really be difficult for me as a single man to go out and have fun when you are being pursued by any number of women ranging from prostitutes to expensively dressed and well spoken Zambian women. I have no illusion that I am very good looking by any stretch. Finally why does every Zambian woman I have a relationship with want me to marry them and take them back with me to Canada. I maybe a Muzungu but I am no fool nor do I intend to be some woman’s ticket out of poverty. That is why I have made up my mind as my three year stay in Zambia comes to an end, no Zambian women for me.
