President Michael Sata is on Monday expected in London, United Kingdom to participate in the diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The Jubilee celebrations are an event marking 60 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth the second of the United Kingdom.
Zambian high commissioner to the United Kingdom Bizwayo Nkunika has confirmed to ZNBC’s Melesiana Phiri-Chibwe in London that President Sata and First lady Christine Kaseba are expected to attend a luncheon that will be hosted for the Queen at Malboro House in London on Wednesday.
Colonel Nkunika says Mr. Sata will also give a key note address at the special Commonwealth Economic forum which is part of the diamond jubilee celebrations.
Colonel Nkunika says President Sata’s first visit to the United Kingdom as a head of state for the Queen’s jubilee confirms the continued fraternal relations of the two countries.
