  1. The same influential presidents have been attending these meetings for decades. Their presidencies are personal to holder. Same brains same line of thinking. Nothing new will come out.

  2. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MEETINGS TO AFRICA’S SOUTHERN REGION. THINGS ARE CHANGING AND SADC MUST SHOW THE WHOLE CONTINET WAY FORWARD TO AFRICA’S INDUSTRIALIZATION, DEMOCRACY WHICH SUITS AFRICA AND NOT THAT WHICH IS TRANSPLANTED FROM THE WEST. OUR PRESIDENT MUST ALSO DISCUSS WITH HIS COUNTERPART THE CRUDE OIL ISSUE LEADING TO QUICK IMPLEMENTATION OF OIL PRODUCTS IMPORTS, AND THE EVENTUAL PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION AND ZAMBIA MUST ALSO START CONSTING THE LINKING RAILWAY LINE.

  3. Things are usually ok until he opens his mouth. He is doing a good job at being quite and dignified so far. Thanks Mr President, keep it up.

  4. [email protected] 4…….So who should be last on the list, in your opinion? I don’t understand your question – surely someone has to be last on the list (its not in alphabetical order)

  5. Its true it doesnt matter which one comes first or last. the fact is they are all their for same porpose

  6. SADC does not really seems to have any results come out of it and it has no teeth to bite either just like the AU. These SADC meeting there good for the presidents to have some travel allowance as well as holidays which they are having in the nice hotels they are in right now. Anyhow may be we can say there is a bite of improvement though not significant. If SADC was truly working i dont think we would be having a problem with the Yellow fever with SA. While at the same time i think the Nigerian managed to solve their yellow fever in one day as they also cancelled all flights to SA that after the Nigerians we deported. Yet their government knew that many of those Nigerians had fake Yellow fever. Enjoy your holiday Mr.President 

  7. It it were RB, PF cadres would have cried foul that he is a tourist. Now that it is the king Cobra himself, these guys are quiet. What hypocrisy is this!

    • Tripple R…what you are suggesting is the job of MMD cadres who have since retreated into oblivion since their humbling defeat in last year’s election. Remember, the pay master’s account was closed when the vault was discovered at a farm in Lusaka west. They would talk but not without money.

      Watch this space for the first in the series WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

  8. There goes Sata travelling.This was the guy who said tourism contributes to environmental degradation.How much carbon emission did his trip contribute to environmental damage?

    • Well aren’t you the same id!ots who were complaining that he his deligating foreign engagements a lot because he himself is too sick too fly? Now nhe starts traveling and you complaining about it? What a bunch of lost UPND/MMD sychophants!!!!!

  9. We should finish the oil pipe line and urgently begin to get our oil from our neighbor. It will be cheaper and we will be promoting SADC ans it makes sense.

  10. If he talks ifya bupuba about Angola like he did about Botswana in Gaborone, Santos will waste no time whipping this lunatic of yours. Truly, Zambians are such a sick nation of jokers, complete with Ukwa at the political helm.

    • You got along 5 years of sulking. Waiting to see sata loose in 2016 is like Drogba ‘having unfinished business with Zambia”. the truth is what come next doesnt matter. We/he won already, whether we/he defend(s) ‘title/presidency doesnt changewhat already happened. Even sarkozy was a one term presidency, so what? he was at least, unlike others who are just still dreaming to enter state house. I end here. Mamadou. :-)

    • @16Terminal Mutima Patient,

      Sir, what gives you the right to insult people like this. Sick nation of jokers? One would tend to think you’re short of words, but I think you’re not. You’ve just got this urge to key in insults. If you can’t help it but insult, smart one, don’t generalize. Insults, my good distinguished gentleman, do not make your verbiage smart! 

  11. I shudder to think what will come out of his mouth when decides to open it. Iyee! Awe! These days it is difficult to tell people you a a Zambian. The whole world must be wondering what kind of people Zambians are to choose MCS as president

    • Worse than South Africans who chose Mr. “womanizer” Jacob Zuma (same, if not lower, educational level as that of Sata), or the soon to be Islamists of Egypt? LOL

  12. Sata beond 2016 til 2021. Then Nevers Mumba takes over as presido in 2021 up to 2031. Elias Chipimo Jnr will be presido in 2041. By then most of you bloggers would have died from a strange sex disease more contageous than Aids yet to come.

  13. @16Terminal Mutima Patient,
    Sick nation of jokers? Sir, what gives you the right to insult people like this? I bet you don’t include your poor innocent folks, right? One would tend to think you’re short of words, but I think you’re not. You’ve just got this urge to key in insults. If you can’t help it but insult, smart one, don’t generalize. Insults, my good distinguished gentleman, do not make your verbiage smart!
