President Sata to open parliament


President Michael Sata is tomorrow expected to officially open the third session of the 11th National Assembly and inform the nation on key economic successes recorded during the two years the Patriotic Front (PF) has been in office.

Mr Sata would also set the tone for Parliament to debate the Presidential speech ahead of the presentation of the 2014 National Budget by Finance Minister, Alexander Chikwanda next month.

Parliament which adjourned sine die on July 19, 2013 had commenced proceedings on June 18, 2013.

The House considered and passed two bills namely the Supplementary Appropriation Bill of 2011, and the Excess Expenditure Appropriation Bill of 2010.

In addition, the House guided by Speaker Patrick Matibini, considered 265 questions for oral and written answers, two private member’s motions and 20 motions on adopting annual Parliamentary Committee reports.

A total of 14 ministerial statements were presented to the House to explain Government position on various issues, while 26 annual reports from the Government and quasi government institutions were submitted to the House.


    • If your father, uncle or even you were in a medical situation which required the use of urine bags, would you start a blog about it? Respect!

  1. Engineers dont talk too much with no sense at all.Iam an Engineer based in zambia myself.I have never seen such an ass of an Engineer like you.

    • mentality of Engineers who went to school bare footed on an empty stomach as if that is not enough they spent most of their stay at unza drinking kachasu in kalingalinga. you are pathetic…. we would rather have a chinese Engineer than an ass of an Enginner cutting sugar cane in australia

    • @The Fist
      Before you respond to some of these comments ask yourself if the title someone is using on this blog is really what he is. Just because someone calls himself the Engineer does not mean that’s what he really is, and if he is, so what ? You call yourself The Fist, tell me, are you really a fist? Better comment on what someone says rather than personalities and their assumed achievements in life. I mean on these blogs who really cares what one does in life. We all don’t know each other and will probably never meet in our lifetimes.

    • @muzo dont be a fool!! WTF bro?? “ask yourself if the title someone is using on this blog is really what he is?” don’t you think that’s exactly what i did? ” this so called engineer” clearly shows that! and yes, i did comment on what he said! his post is stupidly stupid, thus ” he engineers nonsense” familiarize yourself with metaphors,bro!
      find yourself!

      #The fist for president!

  2. Which Engineer in Australia would demonstrate such crass stupidity???? I hope the new Prime Minister sends such fools back home here to be re-educated. You are tarnishing image of engineers, surely you can debate intelligently, even oyu only have a little intelligency!!!!

    • Zambia doesn’t need such Aholes. Let him stay there or end up in Papua New Guinea. If even they would allow such scum to live among them
