Dr. Lammert ?s programme also foresees, among others, meetings with H.H. Vice President Inonge Wina, Speaker of the National Assembly Hon. Justice Dr. Patrick Matibini, as well as meetings with representatives from civil society organisations and churches.

The German delegation will visit one of Lusaka ?s compounds and get an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the ongoing projects of Zambian-German cooperation, such as programmes in the fields of water and sanitation and access to justice.

In addition, the 30 th anniversary of the German-Zambian North Luangwa Conservation Programme, that was initiated by the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS), will be celebrated on Monday, 21 st of March.

German Ambassador Bernd Finke said: “I am delighted that we can welcome such a high-ranking delegation from Germany to Zambia. This is an expression of the long standing partnership between our two countries. The visit to Lusaka will provide the German MPs with an excellent opportunity to get first-hand information about the current political, economic and social situation in Zambia.

The visit will definitely put Zambia on Germany’s radar screen: with a view to the upcoming election campaign, with a view to the current economic and financial challenges in Zambia and with a view to Zambia’s reputation as a location for German investments and tourism.”

  2. UPND forms CARTEL. NO PRINCIPLES HH and HIS WATCHDOG. WATCHDOG thought they can take HH to State House but they have failed lamentably. No government will ever n formed with assistance from CARTEL. They just want to keep milking Zambia through fake presidential cases
