Libya has given Zambia several tractors for boosting food production in the country.

Speaking at the occassion, Republican President Rupiah Banda said Zambia appreciates the friendship and brotherhood Libya has always extended to Zambia.

Mr. Banda observed that mechanized farming is key to addressing the challenges of food production in Zambia.

He said the country was currently in need of mechanical farming equipment such as tractors in order to address the challenges being faced as a result of the global financial credit crunch.

Mr. Banda also noted that government considers agriculture as one of the key alternatives to the mining sector following the fall in copper prices on the world market.

He said government is looking forward to receiving more mechanical agriculture equipment as earlier pointed out by the Libyan government to ensure the whole country benefits from the gesture.

Mr. Banda has since assured the Libyan government that the equipment will be well distributed around the country and be used for the intended purpose of boosting food

production in the country.

Among those that witnessed the official handover were Agriculture Minister Dr. Brian Chituwo, Presidential Affairs Minister Gabriel Namulambe and Special Political Advisor to the President Akashambatwa Mbikusita Lewanika.

Libyan Ambassador to Zambia Khalifa Omar Swiexi said the gesture is aimed at helping to develop the Zambian agricultural sector.

Mr. Swiexi said his country is committed to providing assistance to friendly countries like Zambia through the provision of mechanical equipment such as tractors and other agricultural equipment.

He said the gesture is also a symbol of the long standing relationship between the two countries for the purpose of establishing cooperation and the exploitation of the natural resources.

Mr. Swiexi who described the relations between the two countries as excellent expressed confidence that President Banda and his Libyan counterpart Colonel Muammar Gaddafi would continue to provide guidance in developing and enhancing the already existing relations between the two countries.

  2. Do you remember that in the seventies a defunct communist country (German Democratic Republic – GDR) donated a huge amoyunt of tractors called Fortschritt. They went to the Zambia National Service and State Farms. within six months most of those tractors were lying in parking lots broken down!!! The contract was poorly negotiated and therefore, GDR had no responsibility to bring in spare parts!
    How is this Libyan situation different from that of GDR? What model of tractors are these? How are they going to be serviced? I have never head of Libya manufacturing tractors!!! Something funny is going on here! :-?:-?:-?

  3. Thats good timely news for our nation,but we need to know what the distribution criteria is,any intended targets,since we no longer have kambilombilo state farms.How are these implements going to help us(if at all they wont be found in the ministers living rooms),is the government targeting a group of farmers?,or maybe they will handled over to the dead ministry of Agriculture to benefit Pacos and Dacos or are they going to ZNS?

  7. Since i was born i only hear other countries making donations to Zambia. Now My question is, when is Zambia going to donate something to other countries?
    Lets hope the government will also find qualified people to repair those tractors once they brokendown,otherwise they will only work one year and dumped in farms like ZNS have dumped their tractors.

  14. There is nothing wrong in receiving especially if from birth you have just been receiving and begging.It goes without shame to say that we so much seem to be in need from other peoples sights.The most degrading thing above all is been a christian nation that fails to be far seeing and wise.And at the end fails altogether to feed its christian citizens.In this action who then is exalted?And what do they those who knows that we are christian nation say in their heart?

    Since KK’s time, I have not seen a sensible agriculture policy from GRZ. Problem in Africa and Zambia in particular, politicians think when they take power, they have to change everything: The currency,ministry name,developmental programmes…what was wrong with NAMBOARD and the Provincial Cooperative Unions? Technology would not have reached this stage if every scientist wanted to rediscover the proton! When Isaac netwon discovered the law of equal forces, others built on it…Zed politicians please be serious. Dont outdo each other in messing up the country…people are starving they need leadership….

  20. I bet one of these tractors is going to find it way into RB’s farm in eastern province. Afterall they have to make sure these tractors are roadworth in the gardens, just look at the smile on his face. The Libyans are trying to buy the zedian govt so that they get that land which LPM was in the process of giving them. There is nothing for nothing. 8 tractors = land for Libyans. It is a fair trade….

  25. 9. Mwiponta Mukabwela,

    Since i was born i only hear other countries making donations to Zambia. Now My question is, when is Zambia going to donate something to other countries?

    Every year, Zambia donates $4 billion worth of copper and cobalt to Australia, the UK, the USA and India. For that donation, Zambia receives $600 million in ‘Donor Aid’, of course with strings attached. I’m using the 2004 numbers.

    And it is a donation, because Zambia received only $6 million in taxes in that year.

  27. Engines Bbuloko #24 you are talking sense my friend. Our main problem is that lack of continuity by our leaders. I’ve noted that there were many good projects that KK initiated(e.g. Chipata raiway project) which were completly ignored by the Zaire born Chiluba, and honesty, honestly. There were also many good projects which the Congo Chiluba started which Mwanawasa’s government failed dismaly. You see, there is just no follow up on the projects. Its like whoever gets the job thinks they can change the country in 10 years, which we all know is not possible. I THINK our constitution should be designed to only allow the new elected presidents to be sworn in after a month or two so that the new and old administrations can have enough time to exchange important documents and information.

  32. 46 Chewe, take it easy and do not let the ‘new’ bloggers get you all hot and bothered. At the end of the day, this a public forum whether anyone likes it or not, and so you should expect all sorts. From time to time, there will be new names. A lot of people are on holiday and now have more time to exercise their keyboard skills. After a week or so, you will have the ‘usual core group’ dominating again….until a real juicy topic comes up e.g. what happened from the time between LPM’s demise and the presidential elections. So do not be intimidated mate.

  38. Iwe RB. ubukuluku bwa mu UNIP tawakaleke? Tell people the truth. Today we have unlikely donors-Nigeria, yesterday, and today its Libya with un disclosed number of tractors? Well, Libya is capable of donating. But, they can’t fail to count the number tractors they donating. Tell the nation the truth. What are they going to get in return. Zambians are sleepy. Its either the politicians tell them the amount they have borrowed from World Bank. But never disclose how that money is spent. Apart from themselves, no one has access to the expenditure records. Zambians, wake up. They will tell you the name of the items donated by Libya but not the number of items.

They are just like you and me. Only we did not chose to be politicians. Or we did not have an opportunity. They must be telling us whatever, how, and where they are going to spend your money. Zambians must have full knowledge on all deals entered into with other countrys and organisation, with an exception, maybe with some military deals.

  40. The quality of reporting among our journalists in Zambia leaves much to be desired. They are not analytical and most of the verbatim reporting has a lot of grammatical errors. It points to one thing about our country since Kafupi got power from KK – the quality of education has really gone down. It is an issue that requires urgent attention by a leader with a vision. And that leader cannot be a man like Sata or Miyanda or any of these so called semi-illiterates.

Ukwabula nokubombela abantu ifintu. Even rb akafumapofye nga pakunya. Takabombele abantu. He is just feeding himself. In the end he will burst with a stroke due to overfeeding. Zambians wake up. Start asking for the full details of the deals entered into with other parties. You may be suprised that few if not all have nothing to do wit your welbeing.

Because if he did, I think prominently officiating the receiving of SEVERAL TRACTORS makes him look silly. The silly job would have been the right candidate for deligation to either one of his tea boys, tubena Mulongoti, Teta, and the likes.

    For how long has our government been receiving donations in form of equipment i.e from China for road works,Vehicles from Britain,Korea and so on.
    These tractors are going to be abused just like they are abusing fertiliser meant for small scale farmers.
    There is no proper monitoring system in our government.
    Iam sure they have already shared these tractors by now.

Chiluba was the worst thief Zambia has ever known but we shall show Zambians what type of leadership can help develop our brilliant country. We shall inspire people, educate people, build systems, inform people and make them feel they own govt policies and make sure they understand where we need the country to be after 5 years. Inspire people to aspire and feel part of the wealth of the nation. Watch us in 2011 the team is almost ready, come on board!!

MAYBE THATS HOW ZAMBIANS ARE PAYING FOR THAT ‘FREE’ LANDSCAPING SERVICE. ITS HIGH TIME ZAMBIANS STARTED BEING SECURITY CONSCIOUS.

Watch Mulongoti as I have strong feeling he is very corrupt. Watch the space but get him before he gets us. Mulongoti is not at all Ministerial material, please let us see it for ourselves. Even the most useless characters who were in UNIP were a lot better than Mulongoti. Our team will clean up all this mediocrity and stop the rot.

  52. The current crop in MMD is not the right team of people to deliver development. Mwanawasa used to treat most of them like kids because he knew they could not be trusted. No wonder Magande refused to serve under RB but there are a few people within MMD who we think could be trust5ed in 2011 but I must stress they are very few. We need to scrutinise them very carefully. Why is VJ so quiet? I thought he would be the most outspoken on issues. And why is Chiluba always celebrating? Was Mwanawasa his real problem or are Zambians the complainants? Chiluba must not be allowed anyhwhere near power. He is a very bad egg.

  54. #73, Peter. We have a serious tragedy of leadership. I cant argue but we were basically trapped between two hard places. Our late LPM had appointed this man RB to the Veep position and he just used his powers of incumbence to ascend to the presidency. It is a sad state of affairs but SATA was not a viable alternative. HH lacked capacity in terms of team working with other tribes, he could have been a better alternative.

  59. #77, I agree with you on team building without marginalising other people from other tribes. I believe we need to clearly address these issues about tribies without any animosity. One Zambia one nation should make us trust each other’s abilities more. But mediocre people like Sata and Mulongoti would bring in tribes and discourage voters on these grounds. Our team will listen to everyone and assess their attitudes towards other tribes because that is important. We still have mediocrity among our politicians even those who want to join our team. But we shall try to be very careful to stick with issue based politics.

    =9 Mwiponta mukabwela,you really have a point and notice how Libya has penetrated Uganda because of receiving donations which weaken your moral standing,i really cry for Zambia!!! Does it mean our leaders cant read through the lines,its a spiritual battle we are engaging ourselves in and we seem not to care about the outcome.
    Why cant Libya Donate to Somalia or any other country without the means to sustain themselves??
    It bits me!!And you remain the judge

  74. See because of such donations Libya has managed to spread their islamic ideologies into Uganda,once a prosperous christian Nation has now turned into a country without identity religious wise!!
    These chaps have an agenda of spreading islam into country like zambia,a christian nation to dilute what is their already!!Remember the devil can not what he has already but what he wants to achieve and have!! we are in this predicarment with God because the snake gave a fruit to Eve!!! cant these chaps wake up?

  75. HEY! WHATS THIS I HEAR, AGAIN? IS IT TRUE THAT THOSE TRACTORS ARE IN EXCHANGE FOR, NOT COPPER, BUT URANIUM? TELL US SOMETHING YOU GUYS IN THE KNOW. AND CAN’T WE MINE URANIUM FOR OUR OWN CONSUMPTION? I MEAN ZAMBIA REALLY NEEDS A BETTER SOURCE OF ENERGY THAN THE LOAD-SHADING ZESCO HYDRO SOURCE.

  76. Word up #107! No matter what they have donated, Libya has always proved to be genuinely concerned about the development of the African continent. Gadaffi is not just a leader of “lip-service” unlike some others we know.

  77. “IT’S immoral to condemn Chiluba before he is convicted by the courts of law, local government and housing minister Benny Tetamashimba has said.”
    SO, LONDON COURT CONVICTION IS A FAKE ONE? TELL US THE TRUTH. AND WHO SOUGHT THE LONDON JUDICIAL SERVICE-IS IT NOT YOUR GOVT? DO YOU GUYS STILL WANT TO MAKE MORE MONEY OUT OF THAT CASE. ZAMBIANS ARE BETTER OFF WITH THAT CASE FROZEN AND FORGOTTEN. ITS ANOTHER MONEY SPINNER FOR THIEVES IN ZAMBIA.

  78. I am wondering what this man is going to do, about the unemployment that has escalated since the closure of the mines, and a ratio of only 400k in formal employment is shocking. RB should tell us what he is doing in creating those jobs he promised as these tractors , where he is in the thick of them should ve been a minister, thanking Gaddafi, ( although its a suspicious) RB doesnt seem hard working IMO, in the last 2 months he has made unwarranted headlines.

    And all, how refreshing, not to see mentally retards in this first part of blogs as number…..Anyone knows where that guy Pinkly is? 😛

    Learn to forgive and forget. Smile :d

    Check out George Bush’s English: Childrens do learn when standards are high; They misunderestimated the compassion of our country; I talk to families who die.

    So when you make mistakes such as (although its a suspicious; And all, how refreshing; a ratio of only 400k in formal employment is shocking), i understand and appreciate the effort we all make to communicate using this foreign language.

  88. Trcators alone do not grow food especially when they are handed to a country which has no leader. These are only seven tractors and who is going to benefuit anyway. The government must be ashamed and why does it has to take the Nyama Soya to receive them? This MMD makes me sick because they have been cheating Zambian people for a very long time while fattening their bank accounts. It is not fair and those women who dance for politicians at the airport must stop, they are the laziest people in our ccountry. Instead of working you go to the airport to dance for someone, that is silly behaviour.

    The problem is not with my mathematics. It is with your communication skills (or is it blogging skills). Check this out:

    A ratio if 400k our population which is 12million

    and a ratio of only 400k in formal employment is shocking- you cannot detect a ratio in this sentence.

    Lets discuss more serious issues not English. Like i said, its a foreign language and we are doing great, all of us on this forum.

  113. I hope that as these tractors have come they will not form the basis of making a plan, but that there is already a plan in which these items will fit.
    It would not be prudent for anyone to get a loan and then you sit down and say so where do i start from, where do i get land now that I have money? That should never be the case.

  114. Muammar Gaddafi just wants to lord it over other African countries with his misplaced dream of a US of africa. Gaddafi tried with Arab nations and they saw through him and rejected him. He switched his horizon to African. He is not very genuine. He must be dismissed with the contempt he deserves. Forget his tractors, his dates and other manouvres through his representative Khalifa Swixei.

Why not allow Libya to open up businesses in Zambia that would include “selling tractors” rather than receiving “donations”. Who will really benefit from these “Tractors”. Ba Gadafi ngati munvera chinyanja, bwerani pa Zed musegule “business” elo bantu bazatenga Ma “Loan” yogulira ma tarakita. Aya mwalita, sitiyaona.
