President Edgar Lungu is today expected to hold bilateral talks with his counterparts of Zimbabwe and Namibia, Robert Mugabe and Hage Geingob respectively in Harare.

Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba told Zambian journalists in Harare today that President Lungu will arrive at 14:30 hours in Harare for the Southern African Development Community (SADC) extra-ordinary heads of state and government summit which will be held on April 29, 2015.

Mr. Kalaba said soon after arriving in Harare, President Lungu will meet President Mugabe at State House for a one-on-one discussion.

He said the two Presidents will exchange issues of mutual interest.

Mr. Kalaba said President Lungu will thereafter meet President Geingob of Namibia for bilateral talks.

He said President Lungu will on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 join other heads of state and government in the extra-ordinary heads of state and government summit on industrialisation.

The President will wind up his three-day stay in Zimbabwe on April 30, 2015 by officially opening the 56th Zimbabwe international trade fair in Bulawayo where about 5,000 business visitors and an estimated 70,000 spectators will be in attendance.

President Lungu will return to Lusaka on the same day after opening the international trade fair in Bulawayo.

President Lungu’s advance team comprises Mr. Kalaba, Commerce, Trade and Industry Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe, Lusaka Province Minister Obvious Mwaliteta and Deputy Minister of Finance Christopher Mvunga.

Others are Permanent secretary for Commerce Siazongo Siakalenge and Zambia’s Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Ndiyoyi Mutiti and some senior government officials from relevant ministries.

  1. Give the recent South Africa’s xenophobic attacks top priority. Such attacks cannot be condoned in future. No country can survive on its own, its economic status notwithstanding.

    • Stop exporting your street vendors and drug traffickers to Mzansi. Zimbabwe used to have the second biggest economy in Southern Africa. Mugabe put an end to it with his thuggery. Millions of his citizens are pouring into South African causing grief in that country! We won’t forget how he massacred 20 000 Ndrbeles in 1983!

    • Oh yeah, usually the person seeking advice follows the person with wisdom. EL is the one traveling most of the time. He should stay home and fix the problems here. His wisdom is needed more at home than anywhere else.
