George Bush visits Zambia

General News George Bush visits Zambia

FORMER United States of America (USA) president, George W. Bush, arrives in the country tomorrow for a two-day visit meant to help raise awareness about health issues.

And Zambia is among several other sub-Saharan countries that will benefit from US$75 million that has been set aside by the American government to assist in curbing cervical and breast cancers.

US Ambassador to Zambia, Mark Storella, announced Mr Bush’s visit in Lusaka yesterday, saying the former US president’s coming to Zambia was aimed at raising awareness around health issues which included breast and cervical cancers as well as HIV/Aids.

Mr Bush will be accompanied by his wife, Laura and their two daughters. Mr Storella said the US was committed to working with Zambia in combating HIV/Aids, breast and cervical cancers.

He said the 43rd US president would be received by Republican President, Michael Sata and later meet with Zambia’s First Lady, Christine Kaseba. Dr Kaseba is a medical practitioner with a good understanding of women health-related issues in Zambia.

Mr Bush will also meet Minister of Health, Dr Joseph Kasonde as well as visit the Cancer Disease Hospital at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH).

Mr Storella said the USA was committed to fighting breast cancer among women in Zambia because the disease accounted for half of all cancers women in Zambia suffered from. “We are working in a public private partnership to fight breast and cervical cancers,” he said.

The former US president will also be accompanied by representatives from some US pharmaceutical companies who have remedies for breast and cervical cancers. Mr Bush is in Tanzania today where he is part of celebrations commemorating World Aids Day. He will then travel to Zambia tomorrow and later Ethiopia to attend the ICASA HIV/Aids Conference.

Mr Storella said the US had been motivated to work with Zambia because of the commitment the Government and the country had shown in combating breast and cervical cancers. The US has also chosen to work with Zambia because of its increased budget in the health sector.

“The health workers in Zambia are also seriously committed and they are working very hard to save lives despite not having adequate resources to carry out their work,” Mr Storella said.

He said with the assistance from the US Government, many Zambians were now on anti-retroviral therapy and the more than US$100millon put in the malaria initiative through indoor residual spraying, incidences of malaria had reduced by 60 per cent.

He said the US was also committed to improving water and sanitation in Lusaka and would set aside $300 million to improve the situation in Livingstone. USA presidential initiative HIV/AIDS country coordinator, Kristin Mikus, reiterated the USA’s commitment to fighting breast and cervical cancers as well as HIV/Aids in Zambia.

  1. God bless George Bush! I miss your commitment to world peace! I miss the way you dedicated the Thanks Giving Period to Christians at the White House in the USA!

    I remember the last time you visited Africa in West Africa and the way you appointed majority of black Americans like Rice, Colin Powel e.t.c. You are one of the Greatest Leader in this world!

    God bless George Bush!

  2. Can you Remember how he made Collin Powell lie at the United Nations… Laugh at this “They had evidence of Weapons of Mass Distraction”.  

  3. I will arrest him and take him to the Hague. His freind Gbagbo is waiting for him. This is the worst creature since Hitler, Ian Smith and Botha.

  4. When I think of the many deaths in the Middle East I find little difference between Bush and Gadaffi , Gbabo and the Sudan President. My heart is bland about him and his coming. Why do American fomer presidents choose to come after leaving office

  5. i dont like this hypocrite at all. to me, he is less than a human…………i will never ever forgive him for the crimes he committed in Iraq, Afghanistan..etc. unless he comes out and tells the truth which i know he will never do,……what is even more annoying is that his “colored cousin” Obama, seems to be walking right in his footprint……….

  6. its a good visit welcome to zed but i would loved him visited as when he was a president and one more thing this guys they don’t just visit for nothing he has seen something good in Zambia be ware Zambians….

  7. Zambians be ver worried. These guys don’t visit countries for nothing. They get data through their peace corps guys whom we have been proud of for learning to speak broken local languages. Be scared!! Sata, this is your chance to make a name, get GB arrested and fly him to the hague in a Challenger, and the worl will truely be happy about our country.

    • Ala WEBO wansekesha again namonamo sense,sata will lose nothing by doing that he will only make a good record as a brave african president.

  8. Its unfortunate some bloggers view him that way. I personally look at his strength. Africa was greatly supported thru Agoa durin his reign than any other American leader. 70% of Hiv Aids drugs that ar in ze hospitals today ar as a result of his policy. Moreover, ze world is a much safer place now bcoz of George Bush’s peace and security campaign.Am a great fan of him.

  9. IT IS SO DEVASTATING TO NOTE HOW WEALTH AND EDUCATED BEINGS CONDUCT THEMSELVES. TOMORROW THEY WILL CREATE A DEADLY DISEASE TARGETING ONLY POOR PEOPLE AND TOMORROW RESURFACE TO OFFER A HELPING HAND.

    TODAY’S TOP STORIES NEWS COVER THE HEADING THAT SCIENTISTS CREATE A LETHAL VERSION OF AVIAN FLU VIRUS WHICH CAN CAUSE A LOT OF DEATHS.

    THEY ARE LUCKY CANCER DEVELOPED IN A DIFFERENT WAY.
    WELCOME TO ZAMBIA, WE HOPE TO FIGHT TOGETHER.

  10. These guys built that base in Ibex with something in mind. The Uranium and the Chinese are are giving them sleepless nights. Zambia, watch-out, the cowboy is not here for jokes.

  11. Bush never thought of Zambia when he was President. Bush is responsible for many deaths in Iraq. These selfish leaders! May God minister to him to repent of his sins.

  12. We have Uranium which they have interest in. They are also worried of the influence the Chinese are having world over, and are looking for means to counter it. The world will benefit in a positive way with the emergency of China as a world power.

  13. What sort of ***** is this #1 Shaka Oz? This guy is a mass murderer who only appointed blacks to make their sinister white supremacist operation appear like it was a universal movement. Next thing you know, they are investing in mines. Don’t forget that you have uranium. What the hell does this guy know about health issues… OG, the world is safer? I believe now that IGNORANCE IS BLISS!!!

  14. :d. Chochi Wa Mpanga. Well, zambian should strongly admire us policy that aims at promoting the country at large. zambians leaders have no shame when they sell resources, steal money, rape women and do all sorts of immoral things and sing we are christian nation.
    In fact, KK and RB should get advise from Mpanga on how not to get involved into politics after leaving power.

  15. OG, never mind the bloging here as most of it is just grafiti. George’s practical approach to issues saw him creat a PPEFAR fund that saved many bloggers here who perhaps are on ARV. If not them, their fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers began to receive ARV at a time such drugs were exclusively for the developed world. the same man as others have pointed out appointed a historic number of black persons to key position and is one of the few if not the first SEARVING American president to visit Africa. I REGARD GEORGE BUS AS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

  16. Bush is a good man and has saved many lives in Zambia. Without Bush and USA, a lot of HIV infested Zambians would be dead by now. Please appreciate. You infected yourselves with HIV.

    All those bloggers crying over Iraq are ignorant. Saddam Hussain killed more Iraqis than anyone else. Osama had just attacked USa on Sept 11. If it was Zambia that was attacked, would you have just sat and expect more attacks without going out to hunt terrorists? Yes with hindsight, you can say terrorists and WMD were not in Irag. But there was no credible intelligence prior to that.

    This Middle East you sympathise with is full of mad men and persecutors of Christians. Go live there, you’ll find a bomb in your pants!

  17. Peopl don’t be so Paranoid, i have’nt seen any constractive criticism againist Bush and the USA on this particular platform, lets face it guys we have failed to manage our afares since indipendence despite posessing abundant resources. we partially depend on these guys, the USA, UK and now the Asians.
    So lets give credit where its due, if bush can pledge more ARVs for our siters, brothers mothers and fathers etc lets welcome him with both hands am not saying we bow down to him.
    coz even with the new govnmtnin place i have not seen any foresight to a self sustaining Zambia, which is a Goal we should all achive to get

  18. I hope the president will not try to appoint Bush as deputy minister for Muchinga province. We should be past the ‘teething goofs’ oops, ‘mistakes’ of the first 60 days in office by now. A drill in advance would not hurt. Lol

  19. George Bush is a murderer with too much blood on his hands. When he was Texas governor it was reported that the state of Texas had executed more blacks than any other state in the US.
    He and Tony Blair are war criminals and one day they will face justice.

  20. #28 The Analyst, you are right.

    We have failed to manage ourselves after independence. All those shouting at Bush, look at your own leaders. Havent they stolen from you. Has Bush stolen from Zambians. Has he killed any Zambians. But your own leaders have done you more harm. Who bought you ARVs? Your corrupt selves? Many people have died in Zambia from ailments that could have been cured if stolen money was used to buy medicine. Hyppocrits! Hippos is even better!

    Even those people in teh Middle east you shed crocodile tears for, are they in the same boat with you? Swindled by their own corrupt regimes. Why do they want change – Saddam Irag, Iran, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Afghanistan, ….

    Come on, leave Bush alone. Your own people are more evil than him.

  23. Disturbia
    Welcome to the mother land Bush.
    Success never smelled so sweet so I stink of success, so When you see me, see you!My bone of contention though is that I

    Only spot a few blacks the higher I go, having gotten that out of my way,
    I saw the news which hurt my spirit as a black woman today in both the
    University of Glasgow(1451) and University of Strathclde(1796) tabloids;
    According to this investigation, it was found that a black man would actually kill his mother just to sex a white woman!

    On the other hand,if you see a black woman with a fat white man that means her credit card or is it Visa card is messed up real bad
    because generally speaking black women are not attracted to white men.I hope Knick does not get to see these sturbon facts!
    Thanks

  25. Please President Sata, do the world a favor and make Zambia great. Arrest George Bush and send him to The Hague. You will gain respect and let your colleagues at home know you mean business when you say the law must be followed no ifs, ands or buts. Thank you sir and good luck to you. May God bless Zambia.

  26. 18 The Equalizer

    The Equalizer? George Bush FOUGHT mass murderers!
    George Bush APPOINTED blacks THAT OPENED a way even for BLACK American LEADERS like OBAMA to be voted as the USA President.

    You tell me in the HISTORY OF the USA the time the USA had a lot of Black American Leaders in the USA government like the time of George Bush?

    The world witnessed Black American Leaders in the USA government only in the time of George Bush. Leaders like Rice becoz she was the Secretary of State was able to REPRIMAND world POLITICAL leaders in ASIA, EUROPE, South America, CANADA, RUSSIA e.t.c. Before that a Black leader was only KNOWN to exist in Africa and the CARRIBEAN Islands as DICT, & these were unable to tell off world leaders.

    God bless & protect George Bush!

  27. 18 The Equalizer

    I meant to write, “Before that a Black leader was only KNOWN to exist in Africa and the CARRIBEAN Islands as DICTATORS, & these were unable to tell off world leaders.

    God bless & protect George Bush!”

  28. #34 kantu:

    I cried when i saw the video that showed a PLANE crashing in the second Twin Tower!
    If i was Bush i will DO THE SAME!

    What do you mean by, “War criminal?” George Bush is not a war criminal! Are you mistaken?
    George Bush was in the fight against CRIMINALS actually!

    If George Bush is a war criminal then ALL the Leaders in Africa, Russia, ASIA, South America, are WORSE, BRUTAL War Criminals because they have directly TORTURED their citizens including innocent ones using their security services!

    George Bush ONLY caught CRIMINALS who were a danger TO YOU AND ME! And without being caught we do not know if you and me could have survived!

    George Bush THWARTED dangerous PLOTS through his METHODS of interrogation of CRIMINALS who were a DANGER TO you and me?

  29. this visit is just to good to be true,the USA always have intentions,hiding behind aids awareness……this is move 1,next obama himself will come to discuss exporting all copper to th states,then zed will be left just like they did to th somalians:(

  30. #25 Ice_Road_Trucker,

    You are RIGHT George Bush is NOT ONLY a good man and has saved many lives in Zambia BUT He is a RIGHTEOUS MAN and also saved UNBORN BABIES his POLICY OF NOT SUPPORTING ABORTION.

    Yes George pumped a lot of money in the HIV programs in Zambia George Bush even went further by supporting CHRISTIAN Based Organisations that were involved in the HIV/AIDS programs.

    The only Organisation that may have been against George Bush are the Roman Catholic Organisation because Bush supported the Great Nation of Israel!

    God bless George Bush!

  31. #44 diamond,

    You have a very LOW IQ! You MORON BUZI!

    Honestly what are you doing there where you are? Does it help for to be where you are to have knowledge and speak sense?

    American companies have never been in Zambia but mostly ASIA, and when American Companies INVEST in a country that means they have CONFIDENCE in that country and they COME with good INVESTMENT! They don’t bring war?

    China and Russia are the countries that come with all their confusions.

  32. #17 Barbed Wire,

    You are an ignorant RANT! May be you are just a DRUG ADDICT there in America.

    For goodness sake the USA only helps in the safe guarding of Uranium. There is plenty of Uranium all over the world? Uranium is not a precious mineral?

    You are MORON Chimpanzee who need to be caged and brought back to Africa to continue you AGGRESSIVENESS.

    Am ashamed of your IGNORANCE!

    Your IGNORANCE reminds me of the protests against Bush in Europe when people including the French forgot that it was ACTUALLY the USA that LIBERATED and gave them FREEDOM from the brutal Germany!

    George Bush is and has been a FRIEND of Black Africans! Never in the POLITICAL history of the world has the world seen such a leader like this GREATEST Man called George Bush!

    God bless George Bush.

  33. #8 CINENA NZUU,

    Have you forgotten how many people died under the ONE PARTY RULE of Kenneth Kaunda? I remember the greatest Archbishop of Kasama who died in suspicious circumstances in a road accident in the LATE 1980’S and the many innocent victims who were tortured and told that there is no God apart from the one at State House who was KK at that time.

    You MORON PUSH! KK is in China right now, are you going to call on the Chinese security to arrest KK because he killed innocent Zambians?

    Bush has never tortured any innocent person apart from CRIMINALS unless by innocent means only.

    God bless Georg Bush!

  34. #6 Analyst,

    Which repentance does George Bush needs? You are just an IGNORANCE MOB hater of George Bush!

    If you go through your unconscious mind you will find that YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT wrong George Bush did!

    You need t examine your IQ really!

  35. 7 common sense,

    Am disaapointed with your IGNORANCE with WORLD political history. Are you sure you can compare George Bush to brutal leaders like Hitler, Ian Smith or Botha?

    George Bush is not a RACIST like Ian Smith nor Botha and he is not a FASCIST LIKE Hitler at all!

    George Bush APPOINTED blacks THAT OPENED a way even for BLACK American LEADERS like OBAMA to be voted as the USA President.

    You have such POLITICAL DEMENTIA that you can not be forgiven in your all life.

    George Bush is an innocent political leader who did what he can to fight CRIMINALS and make the world a SAFE PLACE to live in!

  36. Hahaaaa…..make the world a safer place?…my foot! is the world a safer place today? What made the world unsafe i the first place?…….China is making these guys punic and so they are trying to ensure they check China’s influence, especially in Africa were the reasources are.

  37. So, when they give you AID money, ARVs and the like, you think they are doing you a favour? You must be sleeping then! We deserve all the money they give us. By the way, it is not free money, for each dollar you get, you pay back three. These guys can’t afford a paralised Africa, you need to breath for them to succeed. Even when they give you a free scholarship, you are triggering economic development in their countries, teachers get paid, and you spend your stipend stimulating the economy. Their influence is spread around the world and you buy their technology etc etc…The relationship is never one way, it is scewed against us if anything.

  38. #50 shaka oz……or whateverrrrr…….pwahahaha am still trying to figure you out???i mean wht are you doing here,its called opinions just leave your comment and mind you own busness stop attacking others opinions,get a life go fry some fish or something like that….

  39. “YOU DOG!” YELLED MUNTANFHAR AL-ZAIDI BEFORE HE THREW THOSE SHOES AT GEORGE BUSH IN IRAQ… I AM OFF TO BATA SHOE COMPANY

  40. problem with some primitive Zambians is that they hate America and yet when they are asked which country they would choose to go and settle, all choose America. Others condemn America for issues they don’t understand and yet praise criminal Russia and china, countries which support dictators in Africa because thats what they are themselves.
    Viva GEORGE BUSH the world was much safer with you around.

  41. Why entertain murderers? This man is the axis of evil itself, look at the killings that are still going on coz of his ego that was bruised by Saddam when Americans were defeated in the early 1990s. I hate this man for bringing untold misery to other human beings, he should also face the Hague, chikala chobe iwe chi Bush- go back to your BUSH. What a hypocrite, there were a lot of blacks with HIV in America and he never bothered to improve the health insurance when he was the Presido, shameless son of a hule.

  42. God bless this man George Bush

    Thank your Excellence George Bush. As Zambians we are blessed by your visit and we love you!

    George Bush APPOINTED black leaders THAT OPENED a way even for BLACK American LEADERS like OBAMA to be voted as the USA President

    In ALL the HISTORY OF the USA the time the USA had a lot of Black American Leaders in the USA government like the time of George Bush?

    The world witnessed Black American Leaders in the USA government only in the time of Bush.

  43. those saying: Bush is not a criminal
