ALL is set for the African Union (AU) Committee of 10 (C10) Summit to be held in Livingstone this week to push Africa’s agenda on the United Nations (UN) reforms particularly as regards the Security Council.

10 Heads of State are expected to attend the Summit on May 9, 2015 at David Livingstone Safari Lodge from Algeria, Libya, Uganda, Kenya, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Namibia, Equatorial Guinea, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Zambia as host.

The Livingstone Summit, which would be hosted by Zambia’s Republican President Edgar Lungu, would be held under the theme ‘The Livingstone Strategy for Accelerating the UN Reforms’.

A committee of 10 countries was constituted at the Ezwilini Summit in Swaziland, comprising of two countries from each region, whose task was to lobby the Permanent members of the UN Security Council to support Africa’s position.

Zambia and Namibia are the founding members of the C10 representing the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.

At the Livingstone Summit, Zambia will be presenting a joint report with Uganda on a task they were given to lobby the Permanent members of the Security Council.

Zambia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba is expected to host a reception on May 7, 2015 at Royal Livingstone while a State Banquet is expected to be hosted by the President on May 8, 2015 at the Boma arena of the Royal Livingstone.

  1. What position with the humongous hole of CORRUPTION in PF?

    Corrupt Bandits like Dora are “flee” to mingle with PF Bandits as she pleases, is very questionable moral adjudication of PF’s hypocrisy & lies in trying to fight corruption.

    UN with such Human Rights violations, no media freedom, illiterates majority as leaders, surely the country is in collapsing mode.

    The rule of violentic PF will never be forgotten by any normal life, it was a political war torn state.

    PF, the economy & kwacha are in limbo, with such PF hypocrisy, the UN has no idea for such jokes. Imwe story bwanji ma PF BANDITS?! The ECONOMY & KWACHA first before a “position” in UN which you won’t even manage to decide, especially having the self confessed visionless as leader.

    • Respectfully, follow citizen… you are off tangent. This issue is critical and unless you understand and appreciate the importance of meetings such as this, refrain from commenting unless you happily wish to expose your ignorance. There’s a difference between foreign policy and domestic policy. And the matters you raise though cardinal, do not apply to this context.Now that we have that out of the way, can we now debate coherently about the subject in question? I am interested in exploring the advantages and disadvantages of such a move.

      At times show maturity please. It cannot be all negative even if you are sworn enemy to wisdom and development. If you live in Zambia, you would have understood how Dora was skimmed by Winter and Mmembe to look corrupt. Only mistake Dora made was simply to ask Zambia Airways to pay to ZRA airport taxes which Mutembo and Mmembe were collecting. Dora is not the way SHE IS PORTRAYED. Yes she has had tiff-taffs with politicians but what is wrong in differing on professional and political matters.
      You are so negative that you contributions are becoming irrelevant
      Me Hakainde Hichilema to lose again in 2016 is telling you to torn down and accept inferiority in you. You will lose nothing because after all YOU ARE A LOSER

  2. The very same instruments of armed conflicts, corruption and destitution in Africa are going to lead solution finding process in UN?
    Somalia, Eritrea, South Sudan, Sudan, Kenya, Zanzibar, DRC, Togo, CAR, Mali, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Libya ………………..

    Hello, can you first tray to solve problems at home instead of pretending to possess necessary qualities to mediate between “real players” siting in Security Council?

      I’m shockingly disappointed by your myopic views. 10 presidents with their huge entourage are coming to stay in Zambian hotels, and you complaining ? Do you understand the economic benefit of this? What do u really know? U sound like some frustrated guy that just vents out negativity. Get busy and create something positive out of your life. At some point I thought you had something good to say to the world but this comment is so disappointing

      Firstly, please stick to the issue.

      Secondly, why do not ask government to pay terminal benefits of the “original” Zambia Airways?

      Thirdly, why are you so obsessed with HH to the point when it appears that you will love to be his mistress?

    • Please do not insult human intelligence.
      Next thing, you are going to advocate that RB should be given back his immunity from prosecution?
      Where you see “wisdom and development” in Dora action?

      50 years of “wisdom and development” and still to day you are elected to go on your knees in front of elected official.

      50 years of “wisdom and development” and same old failures are repeating same slogans time and time again.

    • As to me be looser (lol), I do not need to kiss anybody arse, foot or hand to survive. Actually, I am living quite well of my own endevour.
      No need to wait for crumbs from high table.
      What is driving me mad, are you members of Zambian “pseudo-intelligentsia” who are praising King clothing when he is actually stark naked.

    • Don’t glorify Dora as if she didn’t do anything. This was one corrupt woman who did damage to the country together with rupiah. That’s why I say Zambians are damn stupidd.

    You are not real but bitter and frustrated.
    In 50 years, RB ruled with Dora only 3 years and left government with surplus $3.8billion. The 47 years are shared by others.
    You think when RB is jailed and Dora is barred from participating in politics then progress will become of Zambia. This is flabbergasting
    This hate you have in you will surely kill you.
    Am very comfortable equally and meet all my bills. But this is not the point. Point is for you to see progress in Zambia not always hate. Zambia is healing under EL but those whose political fortunes have dwindled see things differently. Join us and you will not regret.

    • The surplus u r talking about is attributable to Levy Mwanawasa. Don’t mislead us. And this has nothing to do with Hakainde. That’s why I say Zambians are blessed with STUPPIDITY.
