First Lady Esther Lungu has praised former United States of America president George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, for their strong commitment to addressing global issues like gender inequality and poor health.

The First Lady noted that her invitation by the Bush Institute to participate at the high-level meeting for First Ladies, where issues affecting humanity are top on the agenda, is a great honour to Zambia.

Mrs. Lungu said she will take advantage of her engagements in America to highlight the problem of cancer and HIV/AIDS as well as women and child issues which require urgent attention from the international community.

ZANIS reports from New York that the First Lady said this in an interview yesterday shortly before she flew to the city of Dallas Taxes for a series of meetings involving First Ladies and other dignitaries.

Mrs. Lungu stated that the involvement of First Ladies especially those from Africa in matters of health, gender equality and technology will help to advance the call for more action among developing nations in bettering the lives of the people.

She pledged to use her status as First Lady of Zambia to contribute positively to the well-being of the under-privileged in society.

The First Lady is in the United States of America to attend a series of high-level meetings in Dallas Taxes and New York.

During her engagement, Mrs. Lungu will interact with US First Lady Michelle Obama, former First Lady Laura Bush and other top dignitaries in discussing issues of women empowerment, health and globe technology.

    • Zambians, still grooming little girls to be servants! What’s with the culture of little girls delivering flowers to politicians. Why couldn’t a grown man do it? Mothers of girls, please protect your daughters and teach them to think of themselves as worthy, don’t raise them to be submissive, that’s where all these domestic violence issues stem from!

    • @Ray they should have asked the former First Lady Mrs Sata to accompany current First Lady! Ala ku kolokotako fye nefupa lyashala (you only chew a bicky and the bone remains).

    • She was invited by virtue of being a First Lady. She is not the only First Lady attending the meeting and her predecessors have all previously been invited to attend the same meeting annually. These people don’t go to these meetings blindly but always have technocrats by their side to guide them on matters.

    • Thank you for saying what I have been telling haters since yesterday. She is accompanied by smart diplomatic and resource agents. They forget we have a mission in the US, and smart diplomats. Ignore the secretary, the others are good.

  1. Then why not just let the technocrats go? Isn’t that counter intuitive? You invite somebody who you know does not know how to do something and he or she brings brings to you somebody who is going to do it for him or her? I would just invite the or she that can do it. Fulustop!
