10. Don’t Thank Too Much
When you finish eating in a Zambian home, do not thank the host too much. If you do this, you are simply putting him/her through superlative embarrassment. Just wait till you are finally leaving and then say a simple zikomo or thank you.
11. Do Not Finish Your Food
When you finish eating nshima, it is bad manners to literally clean off your plate. It is advised to leave a small amount on the plate. This small amount is for the kids who will clear the plates to eat while hidden away in the kitchen. If this is not weird, then what is?!
