conscription does not exist
Zambia has no compulsory military service in the armed forces and has never had any since achieving independence.  
Yet Zambia has another form of conscription, the Zambian National Service, which involves three months' military training. 
Zambian National Service
The Zambian National Service (ZNS) is aimed at resettling young people on the land and producing food, establishing small industrial enterprises, developing sports skills and helping in the defence of the country.
