RB desires to improve Zambians living conditions – Mswati

Headlines RB desires to improve Zambians living conditions - Mswati

kingmswatiKING Mswati of Swaziland has urged Zambians to continue supporting President Banda because he has a heart for the people.

He was addressing some Mfuwe residents who went to bid farewell to him at Mfuwe International Airport yesterday.

“President Banda is committed to all of you. All he talks about is you, the people of Zambia. Continue supporting him because he can only achieve his desires to better your lives with your support,” he said.

King Mswati said President Banda has a heart for Zambians because he always talks about the desire to improve their living standards.

“President Banda is committed to all of you. All he talks about is you, the people of Zambia. Continue supporting him because he can only achieve his desires to better your lives with your support,” he said.

King Mswati said he was happy with his visit to Zambia and enjoyed game viewing with members of his family and the Zambian first family.

He said he is happy with the developments he has seen in the National park because caution has been taken to ensure that the natural heritage is preserved.

“Nature is a gift from God and so even the young people must grow up preserving it, especially that people come from afar to come and see the wonderful wildlife that you have in this country,” he said.

On the piece of land he was given by the chiefs in North Western Province, King Mswati said he will be sending a delegation from Swaziland to come and see what sort of development can be put up.

He said the delegation will also look at economic activities the two countries can embark on.

The King thanked President Banda and the people of Zambia for the hospitality that he received during his stay in the country.

He said he looks forward to reciprocating the gesture when President Banda visits that country.

Meanwhile , President Banda has thanked the people of Eastern Province for the good reception that he and King Mswati received.

He also thanked the MMD in the province for its continued support to his leadership.

Mr Banda said the MMD is a strong party as it can be found in all corners of the country.

He said MMD must show that it is a strong party and that it is an organisation for all Zambians regardless of origin.

“I also want to thank all the chiefs that came over to Chichele to meet us, and we all enjoyed watching the dancers both from here and Swaziland,” Mr Banda said.

He assured the people that their farming inputs will be distributed in good time so that they can grow enough food to feed the country , as well as for export to neighbouring countries.

Earlier, Eastern Province Minister Isaac Banda assured the President of continued support to his leadership by the people of the province.

He said the province is honoured to have received King Mswati as their guest.

King Mswati’s plane took off at 12:00 hours while President Banda’s plane took off at 12:30 hours.
The President flew to Chipata on a private visit and is expected in Lusaka late this afternoon.

  1. According to th POST which reported “I thank my party MMD for being the national party, what they are, that in the last election they proved that they are a party for everyone in this country because my candidature proved wherever I stood because I stood in all 150 constituencies. I was either number one or number two. We were seven of us, I was never number three in any constituency, Your Majesty.” for there only 4 presidential candidates in the 2008 by-election namely HH, Sata, B. Gen. Miyanda and President RB Banda, President RB Banda has lied again .

    Incapacitation?

    Psalm 16:
    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
    9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

  2. Impressive enough, only “Mr Banda said the MMD is a strong party as it can be found in all corners of the country” has been highlight on here which is also suspect as PF is in control of the Copperbelt Province while the might UPND enjoys great support from the Southern Province both provinces being economic powerhouses of our great Nation.

    I thus hope the UPND-PF PACT will intensify its campaign right now in all the rural areas of Zambia, so that come 2011 elections it will be a walk over tripartite election.

    Have a good day all.

    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
    9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

  3. His Royal Majesty King Mswati has personal feelings for President Rupiah Banda, but those feelings should drive him to concluding the feelings RB has for the people of Zambia.

    RB is about himself and his family only to the exclusion of the people of Zambia who put him in the office of President period.

  4. ERRATUM: In 4 after the first coma should read: “but those feelings should ‘not’ drive him to concluding the feelings RB has for the people of Zambia”.

  5. What was this King’s visit all about ? Why did those chiefs give him land when most of their subjects are just squatting on some small portion with many people.Birds of the same feathers often flock together indeed, no wonder this RB has that young girl for his wife just like this king who marries every year the young girls of his kingdom.Shame on you shameless leaders even praising each other in public for what.

  6. Why should it take a despot from a tiny Kingdom to tell Zambians that RB wants to improve the wellbeing of Zambians. This is a man who has failed to develop a tiny Kingdom of under 1million people despite billions of dollars being channeled into his country by donors…I can’t wait to see him killed…or overthrown….These are the chaps who take the African continent back & RB seems to like him coz they are birds of a feather…

  7. I can’t even finish reading this in one day and he is able to speak good about RB????Then he too is not genuine coz he has over looked importnat things and people sufferings.He should have been independent or rather shut up than talk crap.

  8. Ba king mswati my advice is; “if you are an eagle don’t hung around with chickens” I certainly don’t see any good affiliation between RB and king mswati and i bet the product of this affiliaton will be a poignant one.

  9. Ba King kabiyeni fye.What do you know about RB?You might as well start talking to trees or rocks because the guy is no different from either. Save your breath.

  10. Forgert FTJ going to jail. The man despite facing criminal cases in courts of law is still enjoying himself though his movements are restricted. The whole process should not have been started. He gets invited to all important state functions together with his wife. Just wait and see.

  11. #13 no politician will ever be succefully judged and sentenced pa Zed. Move on and talk about something else (most probably what strategies will RB use to steal during his term of office, How is MMD going to cook votes come 2011, etc)

  12. On: ” King Mswati said President Banda has a heart for Zambians because he always talks about the desire to improve their living standards.” He talks the walk but never walks the talk!

  13. There has been another sentence for Fujimori in Peru, whats wrong with our judicial system? most of our famous criminals in Lusaka are supposed to be behind bars by now. twanaka na ama adjourn, atase.

  14. How many of his wives did the king bring with him? I hope RB did not offer him any more of my beatifull cousins from the East……

  15. King Mswati is right when he says that all what RB talks about is the people of Zambia because yes we are his pay masters, but he is wrong to contamplate that RB has a heart for Zambians.

    RB is good at giving lip service and he gives it with a partion never seen before in politics, however his implimentation of the things he talks about has improved from BAD to WORSE from the time he took office, We as Zambians still have worse to come until we replace this undepeforming government. Even the monkeys are fed up.

  16. Sorry but uyu muntu mwaletela knows nothing about exceptional leadership except ‘eating’ other mens daughters. What morality is in him? What democracy is in Swaziland? Aletafye imipashi yakupa upa. I wished we were forewarned so as to lock up our sisters. ATASE!!!

  17. But Guys is it just me or RB is associating himself only with the people that really dont have a good name in the region or world? What is he really up to?

  18. #2 Maestro Hakuchicha- You missed one of RBs AMNESIA statements- “I STOOD IN ALL 150 CONSITUENTS” Now tell me does a presidential candidate stand in only selected areas or does he stand in the whole of Zambia?

  19. One wonders what those two good for nothing defunct leaders were meeting for. At least I know they have one common interest in young girls but i hope thats not want they were meeting for. the king has only succeeded in marrying one young girl every year wereas BRB has only succeeded in moving the economy backwards and surrounding himself with people full of nothing but water in their heads, no brians whatsoever. When BRB says zambians, he means his grand daughter T, his two great grand children so called twins, MMD parasites, and never the 12 miilion plus zambians and so what was that tourist of a king accompanied his zayellow saying. Zambians lets redeem ourselves!!!!

  20. What a dull and selfish leader we have in Banda. Banda should be reminded that he is headed for failure. He likes leisure. Please impeach this president NOW!

  21. Uyu mambala king mswati alitemwisha amanone,i saw him on a video clip getting a massage by five women and that what he is famous for.

  22. How on earth is RB’s desire to imrpve living conditions of Zambians when his MMD PIG has failed to improve the country’s Health Delivery System instead he has brought us Chinese Harmmers (Katenga Malilios). King Mswati is ill informed of Zambia’s current problems. That was just diploamancy. You could even tell that those ngoni warriors who were taken to Mfuwe to entertain Msati & RB were not healthy apart from that fat guy I guess is from Lusaka. When MMD cadres are fated and paraded and every thing is window dressed, one call not see the difference between darkness and light. Its all systems must go.

  23. Economic growth is the key to living standards and improving quality of life and I feel that to neglect economic growth is to create more inequalities.Trade promotes private enterprise, which creates wealth, which improves living standards, which undermines political repression.The current trading system is one of the biggest obstacles to fighting poverty and improving living standards in zambia. Trade barriers need to be dismantled.

    unless the labor unions grows to increase workers’ standard of living, that has got to be our fundamental purpose. We have to put the resources where the words are.

  24. A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.But remember that God gave men both a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time.

    Gudday

  25. the mwasti just made the people of Zambia his enemy. does he think we’re dumb?
    come 2011, someone will cry. the UPND-PF pact will unseat this despot of a failed prezidento!

  26. 24 Deja Vu greetings, on “… – You missed one of RBs AMNESIA statements- “I STOOD IN ALL 150 CONSITUENTS” Now tell me does a presidential candidate stand in only selected areas or does he stand in the whole of Zambia?” Its a failure to express himself properly and so I take it that English is not his mother tongue. However, such brings into question Mr President’s LITERACY level which is a requirement for one to be presidential candidate in the Constitution following Presidential and MP qualifications.

    This is why LITERACY must be defined — as a certain education level.
    _
    Psalm 16:
    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
    9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in…

  27. What can you expect from two dictators specialised in telling lies. Rupiah ordered those chiefs in N. W. Province to give away that piece of land to his fellow tyrant. Zambia is now being mortgaged to crooked foreigners while we watch. Not to worry, the next government will cancel all that nonsense.

  28. 39 continued.

    I think that Mr President is just too old to combine or coordinate things properly and hence his recent questionable utterances like on 1% (170,000 people) of use 50% of the National budget which translates to 17 million Zambians when we are only about 12 million, his self alleged obtaining 100% votes and having all MPs and Councillors belonging to MMD in Northwestern Province when the truth is the UPND has a considerable representation there with 2 MPs out of 10 or so and a number of councillors while president HH beat him clean somewhere and the above lie.
    _
    Psalm 16:
    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
    9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

  29. #43 Ghost Dog – If women ran the world there would be brains at work 24/7 a trait men do not have. I rest my case.

  30. 44 continued.

    Coming to the LITERACY issue in our Zambian Constituency and MP Magande’s “I have opposed the idea of an academic qualification as a criterion to choose a presidential aspirant from the onset. We don’t have a universal education standard in Zambia because most people can’t afford it. I have seen and met people with many degrees but have failed to manage even their families. Just here in Zambia there are village headmen managing their villages better. It is not necessary because all we need is a wise and intelligent person” according to the POST, I am appalled by his statements as they are retrogressive to the progress of Zambian Democracy.
    _
    Psalm 16:
    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

  31. The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.RB has a just cause,the desire to improve the living standards of the people of zambia,he of course needs our support on this one.Patriotism means unqualified and unwavering love for the nation, which implies not uncritical eagerness to serve, not support for unjust claims, but frank assessment of its vices and sins, and penitence for them.It requires greater virtues to support good rather than bad fortune.

  32. 46 continued.

    To the best of my understanding LITERACY means ability to use language to read and write, sometimes listen and speak, and being knowledgeable and educated in one or more fileds of study. Hence I support the calls for an MP and President education qualification, say University First Degree, requirement to be embedded/engraved in our new Constitution before 2011 election by just explaining what LITERACY means in the MP qualifications for elections which hold for the President qualifications too by a reference clause.

    However, since many Zambians have not had a chance to get a university education, LITERACY can be defined as Grade 12 in our Constitution.

    Psalm 16:
    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

  33. Good afternoon
    Not that I intend to undermine the Swazi King’s statement but I guess this is what they call “diplomatic code of conduct”.

  34. So ivi vima dala muma millitary decorated suits ..??? why do they parade for this cleary egotistic and shameless dogdy king who has been oppressing his people. they are even looking at him with envy. and just is it that we are making friendships with all the disgruntled suckers like Bob and mwati. I guess its a question of the numpty RB following like plumage. What a disgrace!!

  35. To wrap it up, the “Nature is a gift from God and so even the young people must grow up preserving it, especially that people come from afar to come and see the wonderful wildlife that you have in this country,” attributed to King Swati is great and it should be extended to student exchange programmes satrting at high school to college and university levels.

    Such should be done to help our young people to learn different languages in our SADC area as well as appreciate the different cultures that our Nations have.

    For high school pupils, one term in a family setting would be good while tertiary students can spend a term or semester depending on systems.
    _
    Psalm 16 + KJV Bible:
    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be…

  36. Such a pupil and student exchange programme can start as a pilot project with Zambia and Swaziland and then later be extended to all SADC countries.

    Once the grassroots understand each other in this way, it will be easy to create a one economic zone like the EU with one currency and no border controls in SADC.

    I thus urge those working on the Joint Permanent Commission under the MMD GRZ of Mr President to look into this issue seriously in order to expose our fellow Zambians who have not travelled outside the country or their place called home or provinces of origin.

    Such can also be encouraged at National education level to break tribalism or regionalism.
    _
    Psalm 16 + KJV Bible:
    8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

  37. Ghost dog do you have muliple personality disorder?one moment you are nice and kind the next moment you turn into a monster

  38. “He said he looks forward to reciprocating the gesture when President Banda visits that country.” – RB will obviously personalize this land he will be given. No use telling us of this iwe Mswati, ni land ya RB

  39. Kwena RB likes travelling. His name should be Lwendo not Bwezani. Achita tyani ku chipata manje on a private visit. Kapena Dora was waiting for him there pa ka lodge???????
