President Edgar Lungu has arrived in Harare, Zimbabwe for a one-day official visit.

The President arrived at Harare International Airport aboard the Presidential Challenger Jet at 10:00 hours and was received by Zimbabwean Vice President Emmerson Munangagwa, Foreign Minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi and Zambia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba.

Others were Zambia’s High Commissioner to Zimbabwe Ndiyoyi Mutiti, senior officials from the Zimbabwean government and some members of staff from the Zambian Embassy in Harare.

The President is accompanied by his Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda and Kaizer Zulu, the President’s Special Assistant for Political Affairs.

President Lungu was driven to Meikles Hotel in Harare city centre soon after his arrival.

According to the official programme released to the Zambian media by the embassy, President Lungu is expected to hold official talks with his Zimbabwean counterpart Robert Mugabe this morning at State House.

Mr. Lungu will also attend a state luncheon that will be hosted in his honour by President Mugabe soon after the official talks.

President Lungu is expected to return to Lusaka later in the afternoon.

This is the second international assignment that President Lungu is undertaking since his inauguration on January 25 as Zambia’s sixth republican President.

President Lungu was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia last week where he attended the ordinary session of the African Union at which he also gave his maiden speech.

    • We entirely support the visit your Excellency. Clean up the mess both in Government hospitals, Government Agents and institutions that will make your Government deliver serious development now and beyond 2016 to the expectations of your people. Zambia is not just Lusaka and am sure you are more than informed that a lot of people did not support your effort when it mattered most and these should not pretend to be good to you toady simply because you are now in State House.

      There are many young men and women who were with you through hard times whilst most big bwanas in higher offices had their legs in two camps and supporting your enemies.

      This is time to reflect and put your devoted and loyal team to work.

      God bless you your Excellency.

    • The president is on a working holiday. Period !

      Edgar is better off taking 2-3 weeks to form a team, than appoint people who will not perform or deliver. Its shows that he is seeking wisdom and reflecting

      With all the mighty structure of the US government. It took Bill Clinton more than 5 months to form his entire government. Obama also went through the same time scale.

      Its not like Edgar has gone to just rest and disconnect from the reality of governing – he went with his team & advisors.

      Besides, he is entitled to have a break. Every year, the sitting president is scheduled to take a working-holiday at this precise time & month.

      I am not for PF – but guys like Alias Chipimo – need to try something else to score political gains.

    • If one can find a friend in Mugabe, he leaves a lot to be desired. Mugabe is no good mentor for a leader in the 21st century. EL please find better leaders to associate with. Look at Botswana and its leader, that is were you should be taking foreign policy. Sad indeed that you find it fit to be dinning with Mugabe.

    • There goes Lungu a Zambian president without a plan. He is in Zimbabwe to consult his mentor Mugabe on how to run Zambia and constitute his cabinet then turn it like Zimbabwe.

      Lungu is Mugabe ‘s proxy via RB.

      The real president of Zambia now is Mugabe. Mugabe is really a very powerful man.

      The down side of Lungu ‘s association with Mugabe is that, Zambia will now be considered an investment risk country like Zimbabwe. Investors will start withdrawing their investment from Zambia until a sane government which will have no dealings with Mugabe takes over.

      FDI has completely dried up all because of Lungu and PF ‘s courting of the evil dictator Mugabe.

      With PF in power, Zambians at home muzanya manzi.

      Ati Lungu is a president of Zambia my foot!

    • Indeed we still have too much lack of reasoning.

      Its not about comparing Obama/Clinton to Lung. Unless if one person is simply very think to grasp the analogy, being stated.

      This is about forming a running government and what time it takes to assemble a team.

      As time after time that person seem to be the most person getting ridiculed every single day. If I was that person, I would really look into my mirror seriously.

      Are we still aborting babies with Nick. Please get a life and divert your voice of frustration/anger/ hate/ to some other source.

      I don’t support PF, but the people chose their leader. We support him or get out from the affairs of Zambia.

      Stop this plagiarism iwe. Your post number 1.1 is my original work and I see that you have edited what I included in my posting. The President needs to clean up the Parastatals period!
      Many top guys never supported the President but the opposition and only started to align themselves with H.E. when it was apparent that he would win the elections.

      Most of them had their legs in two camps and the President must/or should be made aware of this ’cause history may just repeat itself if left unchecked.
      They also aligned themselves with some Ministers that the President has since reappointed and others. These are no different from the likes of Munkombwe except that they wanted to “eat” from PF and the opposition.

It’s the reason why making this courtesy call on the man who gave him the presidency on a silver platter is that urgent for Edgar Lungu. It could not wait.

LUNGU HAS GONE TO ZIMBABWE JUST TO WASTE OUR MONEY, AND NOT TO ADD VALUE TO OUR COUNTRY. WITH LUNGU IT’S ANOTHER WASTE!

This man has no single mandate of the people of Zambia since he is just nominated by the president. So, him has nothing to lose. Our president has already spoken on the way forward with the mines on new mine taxes. But we all surprised he is still coming out on the same. He is still provoking the investors. This guy should shut up. I think he must be removed for he is saving no purpose.

    • Zambia needs to work closely with Zimbabwe to create a Strong Block of our two countries. Much as Mugabe has enjoyed Notoriety, we must move on and international sanctions removed so we can create successful economies, bearing in mind Western countries are yet to pay for the sins of Colonial past.

      It makes sense with the looming trouble with NW Province. By maintaining good relations with Zimbabwe, we can have a good war manoeuvre from the boarders of Victoria Falls. See? Zambian Defence force this side of Zambia bearing IN and our good friend Rob’s Defence Force bearing IN, in over Victoria Falls! We can quash any upheaval in NW in a Flash!

    • The trouble with Zambia is multiParty politics is not suited to us.

      We were forced into this by the west who created the Tribal Divisions in the first place. Now we are forced to deal with sponsored people like HH and ‘Cartel’ who prey on the colonial divisions.

      In some way our journey into Multi-Party politics has turned full circle and left us with a COLONIAL PROBLEM set-up systematically to ensure their dominance into our economies.

      It might just be that what we lack is confidence in our own ability to create lives and systems that suit us naturally. Technically we are still one party states as Total Power rests in the President which is good if you note the divisions that have arisen caused by Unpatriotic, greedy opposition party’s. Im it conceding defeat is uncivilised.

  40. @48 Patriot Abroad, is there any other language you you can speak apart from the language of tribalism which you exhibit clearly but try to smear it on others. You can cheat yourself but not the public what sits at the helm of your heart and that is the very picture that you portray to the public through your writings. In your recent Presidential Election which was held last month, was Hakainde Hichilema the only candidate in the opposition camp and if not so , why is he the only sole person they you write negatively everyday ? You have got a big problem in your head and heart and I would assume you only need the blood of Jesus Christ to cure the desease because the devil has established a temple within you. Pray hard that u dont perish.

  43. Dear Zambians
    I think its not time to start saying much as we focuses on hard work to develop this country certain key factors needs to be looked at with people leading us, it is not right for our presidents start mixing with Mugabe look at the way his people are suffering e.g. intercity Lusaka selling sweets etc. no parent or child can be happy to see his father or child mix with wrong people lets learn to say the truths us people if we are to develop this country,
