FILE: President Sata and Presidnet Mugabe

President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe is expected in Zambia today to officiate at the 86th Agricultural and Commercial show which opened its gates to the public at 08: 00 hours.

Mr. Mugabe is expected to be accompanied by his wife Grace.

According to the updates from the meeting of the Standing Committee of Permanent Secretaries on State Functions held last week at Cabinet office in Lusaka, Mr. Mugabe is scheduled to land at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport tomorrow at about 13:00 hours.

He is later scheduled to hold talks with President Michael Sata at State House which will be followed by a state banquet in the evening.

Mr. Mugabe is also scheduled to pay a courtesy call on Zambia’s first President Kenneth Kaunda at his office on Friday and later visit SARO Agro Industries within Lusaka.

On the same day, the Zimbabwean Head of State is expected to visit ZAMBEEF Huntley Farm in Chisamba, which is located less than 100 kilometres from the city.

Presidents Mugabe and Sata are on Saturday expected to be at the show grounds for the officials opening of the 86th Agricultural and Commercial show.

The two Presidents will earlier on the same day tour stands and pavilions.

As the two presidents will be touring, First lady Christine Kaseba-Sata will lead her Zimbabwean counterpart in touring selected stands before joining their husbands for the official opening in the afternoon.

The show society has since organised a luncheon at midday for the two Heads of State and the First Ladies at the Polo Grill which is just behind the show grounds.

Mr. Mugabe and his wife are expected to leave for Zimbabwe on Sunday morning.

  1. This is a great shame for Zambia, welcoming a man who has done great irrepairable economic damage to his country. Bobs antics have made millions of young people to flee Zimbabwe. This is the man that is going to open our commercial and agriculture show. I hope his arrival is not symbloic of what PF have for us

    • It seems you are fed with the western media bias towards Africa; bbc, sky, cnn, Foxs, Euronews… There is nothing WRONG with uncle Bob coming to Zambia.His visit does not mean that we are meddling in the internal political affairs of Zimbabwe.
      Love your neighbour as you love yourself,THE BIBLE CONTENDS!!!

  3. The most important thing in human life is love.We need to love our enemies.By showing love 2 such people u gonna achieve a lot.There are a lot of Zimbabweans in Zambia.we are related.Not only that Zim & Zed are neighbors.in addition 2 that Zed and Zim will host world tourism conference together.Now why should we quarrel when we gonna share the same cake?Zambians grow up and don’t allow imperialists to misguide u.I’ve been 2 Europe and understand what it takes 2 hate yo neighbor.Mugabe is old and will soon die why should we worry about Zimbabwe when Zimbabweans are happy with him?ooops some Zambians are full of ignorance.Ukulakina isukulu.

  6. I like Mugabe’s courage and stance against the imperialists. There is nothing wrong in grabbing back the land from whites and give it to the rightful owners. The only side I don’t like is his clinging on to power even at his age. Bob you are welcome to Zambia, you are one of the few sons of Africa that will go down in history for standing up to the colonial masters.

  7. CNPs’ cozy cozy relationship with this vile Sekuru will spell doom for Zambia. Mugabe has induced poverty to near biblical proportions in his country and how any sane man can count him for a friend vexes me deeply indeed. If one’s choice of friends is by any means an indication of their character, then that makes Sata a blind fool. It’s like fratenizing with an HIV-AIDS infected girl and wondering why down the line one’s immunity comes down tumbling to the canvass. If Sata has a death wish, he is not short of trees within State House grounds to hang himself, and I don’t give a damn if he did. What I detest is his stinking quest to take Zambia along with him to hell!

    The Art of War: Do not fight a battle you know you will lose.

    The Chinese also have a saying.. “Its the coward who showed the village where the brave man’s
    grave”

    In short when Mugabe is dead… alot of coward’s will show the world is grave and yet he would have achieved nothing and dead a loser

  9. The problem of many Africans is that whatever whites tell them they believe.There is too much inferiority complex among our people especially Zambian people.Oops some people have even abandoned tradition foods coz of ignorance.Some people can’t even speak local language coz they think speaking English makes u clever.ha ha ha u can laugh in Zambia.Go 2 Europe and Asia people are proud of their foods and languages.They don’t mind even if u speak bad English.In Zambia proposing a learned woman is always in English even if both of u can speak local languages.Why should u believe what muzungu tells U?is it because u lack education?Books at Unza are all written by white people.Professors jst use notes of white people.when are they going 2 discover smtg.

Its people like you that make Africa what it is today

  10. Of course, we Africans easily support the sh***t that comes from the Western world. Mugabe’s crime to the Westerners is very clear: he gave the land back to the owners (Zimbabwean). Its a pity that some Zambians can’t see that. When will Africa really wake up? Its sad!!!!

  12. Its amazing how shallow some of us contributors on this site can be. While i admire the desire for Africans not to be fed lies by western nations’ negative view of Africa and its leaders. It is hypocritical for an African to say that when some of us say Mugabe is a dictator and is responsible for possible genocide in his country, we are brain washed by western media. I for one know from first hand experience of this old man’s regime and i do not need the west to tell me he is a dictator and a man who will hold on to power even if it means the death of others. He is a sad example of a African leader and no one should be defending or even entertaining him. Sad indeed that he seems to be CNP’ s number one friend.

  21. #5 ITS TRUE ZAMBIANS A VERY IGNORANT. VERY FEW UNDERSTAND ISSUES. EVEN THEN THEY ANALYSE ISSUES IN ISOLATION FROM OTHERS. IT IS SAD THAT ZAMBIA HAS PRODUCED MANY UNIVERSITY GRADUATES WHO THINK WORSE THAN VILLAGERS WHO DID NOT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO SCHOOL. ZAMBIANS MUST START TO THINK FORWARD. AS I SPEAK ZIM HAS MADE HUGE DEVELOPMENT STRIDES WHILE ZAMBIA WITH A HUGE CHANCE IS STILL WAY BEHIND.

BUT CONDEMNING MUGABE AFTER ALL HE DID TO LIBERATE ZIM WOULD BE LAUGHABLE ON AFRICANS. JUST AS IT IS THE WAY THE WEST INCITED TO KILL GADAFI. IF THATS THE WAY AFRICA IS GOING TO BE CONDEMNING ITS SONS THE WHOLE AFRICA WILL SOON BE A LAUGHING STOKE. THERE ARE COURTS WHERE YOU CAN TRY THOSE SONS OF AFRICA IF AND IF NEED BE.

    I would be very happy if you would give me the name of any African who has invented anything that can be talt in our local schools, give credit where it is due, the west has given us more than we have given them, the richest people in the west are business men but in africa, only the presidents and their families are rich, think twice my brother, Africans have failed, everything we touch gets worse. Look at Zambia where development is only in lusaka, only shopping malls for the rich while the poor receive nothing, and you want to blame the west for this, grow up.

  27. What the BBC, CNN and other western propaganda media won’t tell you is the Zimbabwean economy has started to pick up despite the western imposed sanctions…they won’t tell you about the recently discovered large diamond deposits, hence now want to lift the sanctions. The North Korean leadership in Pyongyang, always chuckle at the naivety and folly of the likes Col. Ghadhaffi who gave away their weapons programmes in exchange for lifting sanctions only to end up cowering from NATO bombers in a sewer drain pipe. Uncle Bob knows the muzungus are not as forgiving as your Mandelas who foolishly let brutal murderers free via reconciliation commission now the call him World Statesman…that would never happen if it was the other way round.

  28. What I have a problem with here is the sheer hypocrisy of Sata who continues to cosy up with uncle Bob at the expense of the Zimbabwean opposition parties; this is no different to Bingu Wa Mutharika showing public support for BUFFOON RB when he [Sata] was in opposition. What happens when uncle Bob suddenly drops dead today and Morgan Tsvangirai becomes President, there is no gain whatsoever in cosying with uncle Bob publicly to the Zambian people at large. Its just all personal with Sata. Sata should be fostering and strengthening relationships with DRC in the North for that market for our manufacturing sector and Angola in the West for its links to the Americas and its resources ie Telecoms and oil.
    This is the problem with electing pensioners they don’t look beyond 10 years…

  29. @ moscow, good observation. @ chimwi with a plan, good comments though u did not consider Africans. Think of Booker T Washinton.
    Kenya invited Sudan President into Kenya despite warrant of arrest in 2010. The result is that we now have Southern Sudan as a nation. Mugabe is wrong in some way but be careful with the west. Their resources are depleted and u should know what they want. Ask China and Japany how to developed.

    • ” Sanctions were against individuals and not the country. ”

      That is the cowardly lie told by the BBC, CNN, MDC, etc. The fact is that the Zimbabwe Dollar was taken out by economic sanctions.

      They want regime change, but they don’t want to know that it comes at the cost of the lives of the Zimbabwean people. The MDC even called for a military invasion of Zimbabwe by Britain. Does anyone really believe that only high ranking ZANU-PF members would be hurt by that?

      Putting the Zimbabwean government on a credit freeze that destroys the national currency hurts everyone. Which is the idea of economic sanctions. Remember that 500,000 women and children were killed in Iraq by sanctions.

We are hosting UNWTO together, we shall be building the Batoka Power Plant once Zim settles US$75m nkongole. We co-manage the Kariba dam and the lake. There is trade between us at Siavonga, Chirundu and L/stone. We use Zim to go to South Africa by bus. So we should know how we fit in this row as Zed.

  35. In all these fights between the West Vs others we should know how to pick out what is good for us. Not wholesome condemnation of these people. These people do have reasons for their actions as well. What I know is that Britain under Blair broke the agreement to redistribute land as agreed at 1980. Mugabe got angry and did what he did! But the issue is anger does not build, it destroys. It is over now.

    • 54 Chindakwanda-Galileo Galilei,

      Just because New Labour refused to fund Willing Buyer Willing Seller, didn’t mean that the people of Zimbabwe should go without land and be stuck on Native Reserves for decades more.

      The result is that 200,000 more families received land.

  36. We, in Zambia, who have plenty of land can host some of those farmers. The thing is we have no apologies to make for hosting Mugabe. He is our neighbour and we have issues perculiar to ourselves. Don’t you see that? We are not chasing any whites in Zambia, are we? So, this failure to distinguish issues is pathetic. Zimbabwe is not dead and it will bounce back some day. Zambia has to be good to all our 8 neighbours.

  38. President Mugabe is the best leader in Africa today. He has the strongest spine, he fought for independence, and he has turned Zimbabwe around on more than one occasion.

    Other than introducing the racist white minority ruled crypto-fascist state of Rhodesia into a democracy in which all Zimbabweans have the right to vote and run for office in 1980, the ZANU-PF emphasized free education, which has led to the fact that Zimbabwe today is the country with the highest literacy rate on the African continent.

    When the government of Tony Blair, through Clare Short, reneged on it’s obligations to pay the land purchase part of the Willing Buyer, Willing Seller land reform program (google: ankomah the spark swans), rather than keep land in the hands of 1% of the population…

    0

  39. … and instituted the Fast Track program. This was so effective, that it distributed land to over 200,000 families, in addition to the 159,000 families who received land under WBWS.

    For this, the Government of Zimbabwe was retaliated against, through a credit freeze, which has been in effect from Jan 1st 2002 to date.

    The national currency was destroyed by sanctions, not land reform itself. In fact, in the first 2 years of fast track (2000, 2001) exports grew. Only when accounts at financial institutions were frozen (international trade occurs on credit), did the trade surplus turn into a trade deficit.

    This is what the Rhodies on both sides of the border don’t want you or anyone to know.

  40. Zimbabwean land reform was *enormously successful*, and should be repeated throughough Namibia, South Africa, Kenya, Botswana, and throughout the world.

    Never in the history of the world has land reform led to world record hyperinflation. And yet this is what CNN, the BBC, etc. want you to believe. It were economic sanctions and especially the credit freeze contained in Section 4 C of the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act of 2001 that attacked the Zimbabwe Dollar.

    The reason there is so much money behind this, Mugabe And The White African was funded by The Economist Magazine, is because there are trillions of dollars in diamonds and platinum reserves at stake.

  41. Zimbabwe owns 20% of the world’s known diamond reserves, and more platinum than South Africa. Anglo-American De Beers trades and mines 40% of the world’s diamonds, and has national diamond mining monopolies in South Africa and Botswana (Debswana). De Beers was founded by NM Rothschild & Sons in 1887, when they also funded Cecil Rhodes, while Anglo-American Corporation was founded by Sir Ernest Oppenheimer and JP Morgan.

    Sir Evelyn de Rothschild (former head of NM Rothschild in London) and his wife Lady Lynn Forester de Rotschild sit on the board of The Economist Magazine.

    Morgan Tsvangirai used to work as a miner for Anglo-American.

    This is who has been determining the news on Zimbabwe for the last 10 years.

  42. And by the way, Mugabe And The White African is a tapestry of lies and deceit. For instance, they hold up a ‘title deed’ as a ‘pretty, pretty important piece of paper’. So who come it has the words Zimbabwe and 1979 on it? Because a) they bought their estate (Mount Carmel) in 1974, so how can they have a title deed from 1979?; b) there was no country called Zimbabwe at any time in 1979. It was Rhodesia, Zimbabwe Rhodesia and Southern Rhodesia. Only from April 1980 on was the country called the Republic of Zimbabwe or Zimbabwe.

    0

    0
  43. Also, Mount Carmel was not ‘a little farm in Africa’, it was an estate, huge even by Rhodesian standards. Mount Carmel is 12,000 hectares. By comparison, the average white farm was 2500 hectares, and a farm in the EU is 90 hectares. This is why they have 40,000 mango trees, 500 workers and still have so much land left that they are raising wildlife on the rest.

    That is an obscene hoarding of the national wealth. No democracy can exist and no economy can develop when 1% of the population hoards 43% of the country.

    The Fast Track program created 50 ha and 250 ha farm farmland, open to anyone including whites and members of the MDC.

    The MDC are traitors, sellouts, and employees of the world’s biggest diamond mine.
