    • Kalaba is the one Lungu is grooming for the presidency. More like the “blind leading the blind”.

    • Security council members have to be world powers; which means countries with military, economic, and cultural influence. As such, if it was to expand, candidates would be Germany, Japan, South Korea, India, and Brazil. In future (2050), it may include South Africa or Nigeria.

    • Obatala Lungulitis, no wonder you are suffering from Lungulitis. Your obsession with Lungu is too much. On grooming, you are lost. Watch out for Simbyakula my friend. He is the next president after Lungu.

  1. Has Libya got a government sure! Mediocrity conference from the looks of countries attending. Shear waste of time and resources, instead of concentrating on abject poverty reduction on the continent, they day dream about security council reform. Look at migration in the Mediterranean sea and the death toll running away from poverty-stricken countries daydreaming about security council. Misplaced priorities.

  2. It will be interesting to see which one of the Libyan governments will show up.

    Also, LT its Sierra Leone.

  3. South Africa and Egypt and Nigeria and Ethiopia and Kenya being absent can be discouraging. More effort is required to persuade regional powers to attend the event. It is not easy to build consensus without the participation of key players. It is not too late to persuade the key players to attend the event.
