Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta, has confirmed that he will grace this year’s Zambia’s International Trade Fair (ZITF).

This came to light when a special envoy from Kenya, Fred Matiangi, paid a courtesy call on President Edgar Lungu at State House.

Mr Matiangi told President Lungu that his Kenyan counterpart has accepted as requested by the Zambian government for him to grace this year’s ZITF.

He disclosed that the Kenyan President will be in Zambia on July 4, 2015, to officiate at this year’s ZITF.

Mr Matiangi said Zambia shares a special relationship with Kenya hence the acceptance by President Kenyatta to officiate at this year’s ZITF.

He further disclosed that President Kenyatta will be accompanied by a delegation from the private sector and the business community during his state visit to Zambia.

Mr Matiangi assured President Lungu that his Kenyan counterpart is committed to further strengthening the existing bilateral relations between the two countries.

He noted that President Kenyatta cherishes the relations that the two countries enjoy.

And in response to the message sent by the Kenyan Head of State, President Lungu said he was looking forward to the visit of his counterpart.

President Lungu revealed that he is eagerly waiting for Mr Kenyatta’s visit to Zambia.

Mr Lungu noted that the confirmation of President Kanyatta’s coming is an indication that the trip is on.

The Head of State told the visiting special envoy to inform President Kenyatta that Zambia is warmly preparing for his visit.

  1. Kenya continues to be an economic hub in its region and there are lessons that Zambia can learn from the delegation. Only those looking for negatives will see this as a bad thing. But then … see the comment below.

      Hero or not, Robert Mugabe has already earned his crown. It’s high time he vacated the throne – he is too old to rule.

  4. Who on earth can really miss dictator Mugabe now or in future? He minds 60% about his own life and family’s welfare as opposed to 40% of the the country. Zimbabweans chased the white colonialists only to replace them with a worse black colonialist. Only after Mugabe’s departure will Zimbabweans realise true liberation. He is a real authoritarian.

    • I wonder why Robert Mugabe cannot emulate his friend Kenneth Kaunda – step aside and let others lead. I see Kenneth Kaunda now – a far much more relaxed and rested old man.

  5. Zambia should learn to announce the coming of foreign heads of states a week or within a week of their coming. Mahama was surposed to come and open Lusaka National park, but he never came. what guarantee is here that Uhuru will come to Ndola? The Lusaka animal zoo opening was a disaster. Up to now we have not seen photos or videos of it except hat one photo of Lungu and rhinos starving fro green grass. That is Zambia the real Africa or Zambia in the sun.

      Hard to believe I am hearing this from somebody who goes by the name “Africa.” I would have thought that polygamy is part of Zambian culture and is well supported by the Holy Scriptures! It wasn’t too long ago when we said “NO” to Western domination and colonialism. We wanted to be INDEPENDENT – whatever that meant.

      Now we are busy importing Western culture, including their latest invention – SAME SEX MARRIAGE! And how many of us are risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean sea in crowded boats, hoping we can strike it big in Europe! Are we not a confused lot, I wonder!
