"The Bemba language is spoken over a large part of Zambia
(particularly in the Copper Belt, where it is the lingua franca)
and by groups in adjacent areas of Katanga Province of Congo-
.   It is used officially throughout much of northern and
north-central Zambia, where, under Government sponsorship, a
vernacular literature is being developed.   A Bantu tongue,
ChiBemba is related to IchiWiza, IchiLala, and IchiLamba."
