President Banda and former Tanzanian president Benjamin Mkapa today held closed-door talks at state house.

During the closed door talks the two presidents discussed the political and security situation in the great lakes Region.

This is according to a statement made available to ZANIS by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Dickson Jere.

Mr. Mkapa who is one of the mediators in the Great Lakes Region is in the country to brief President Banda on the Political and Security situation in the region ahead of the African Union Heads of State and Government summit to be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia next month .

President Banda who is the current Chairman of the International Conference on Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) thanked Mr. Mkapa for the detailed brief presented to him.
President Banda said the brief was useful in handling the conflicts in the region.

Mr. Mkapa said the political and security situation in the great lakes region has normalized in some of the countries adding that there are still many challenges which need to be addressed in order to have peace and stability in the entire region.

Mr. Benjamin Mkapa and Former Nigerian President General Olusegun Obasanjo are the two mediators appointed to spearhead the peace process in the region.


  1. I worry more about Kunda he looks like a lost sheep. Atleast RB is coming to the end of his political career, and so he would careless if he is destroying ‘his’ party or not. Kunda if not careful will be stranded IMO

  2. Is Mkapa the outgoing Tanzanian president or has he already retired? Anyway, at least RB is having closed door talks with another African leader. Lets hope the talks will have a progressive outcome.

  3. Abena Chale which planet are you on? I guess you the type who knows all the leaders in Europe and not your own neighbours. Its a typical Zambian thing……can name the English squad and dont even know the Zambian assistant coach let alone what colour our national team jersey is.

  4. Poor RB it is written all over his face he wants to get on a plane and visit as per norm. I think he has got the message !!

  5. inform the president that he cant please every one ,let him continue working hard as he is now trying to reach out to all citizens. RB is just on the right truck and its just normal for us to give him the support that he requires .for those who needs guidance i can advise that leadership must be respected and supported because the benefits are for all poeple of this country regardless of political affiliation and for the sake of zambia i invite all well meaning citizens to rally behind RB .you must learn to critisise constructively and dont just open yor mouth with very little thinking.its food for thought .
