President Edgar Lungu is happy that the Czech Republic has renewed friendship with Zambia.

President Lungu says Zambia will utilise this renewed friendship to further strengthen the mutual relations between the two countries.

Mr Lungu says he expects exchange visits and business entrepreneurs to invest in Zambia

The Head of State was speaking at State House when visiting Czech Republic Minister of Agriculture, Marian Jurecka, paid a courtesy call on him.

This was shortly after Agriculture Minister, Given Lubinda and the visiting Czech Republic Minister, Mr Jurecka, signed two Memorandums of Understandings (MoU) on mechanisation and industrialisation of the agricultural sector.

Mr Lungu said Zambia stands ready to learn best agricultural practices from developed countries like the Czech Republic, thereby deepening mutual understandings between Zambia and the Eastern Europe country.

And speaking earlier, visiting Czech Republic Minister, Marian Jurecka, said his country stands ready to assist Zambia develop her agricultural sector by setting up a food industry in Zambia.

Mr Jurecka, who was speaking through an interpreter, Silvie Ginterova, noted that the relations with Zambia have not been so intensive for over two decades hence, renewing the ties.

He disclosed that his government has prioritised Zambia as one of the two countries on the African continent to benefit modern innovations and technologies in the agro-sector.

Meanwhile, Agriculture Minister, Given Lubinda, has disclosed in a separate interview that the Czech Republic has opened up scholarships to Zambians wishing to study in that country.

Mr Lubinda, who has just returned from the Czech Republic a fortnight ago, further said government is determined to diversify from mining to agriculture.

He added that Zambia is on the right path with the involvement and participation of developed countries like the Czech Republic which has demonstrated to help improve Zambia’s agricultural sector.

The signing of the MoU was witnessed at State House by Presidential Spokesperson, Amos Chanda, Agricultural Permanent Secretary, David Shamulenge, and visiting Members of Parliament from the Czeck Republic Petr Stary, Jiri Jirsa, Petr Kulovany and Merek Svoboda.

  1. I wouldn’t go to that country for education. Not even with scholarship and expenses paid for. Come on Zambia!

    • I guess there are many of such documents by the PF because also this idea of the President being a good Christian from no where no church no baptism. First lady going to any church gathering from no where. But the first family has been insukated from the real nature of the family and no one questions: Which Church does ECL go to? When was he baptised? But today ECL is portrayed as Christian even verses are given to him just to convince the gullibles!

    • I hope he’s not thinking of opening an embassy there, anything is possible with this guy, he’s confused the job is too big for his limited capabilities.

  2. Reminds me of the old saying in zambia those years gone-by ati; “wailasha kwa Zescoro”. These guys are good despite the country’s break up of the old ‘Yugoslavija’. These are the same pipo who built various infrastructure in Zambia including our tallest building Findeco. Well come back guys, we need you more especially in agriculture

    • Yes come back 30 years on …Findeco is still the tallest building in the land…do you not see the irony in your post. When is this selfsame slave mentality going to end; “oh this one is a good master because”…why can’t yourself invite international students to UNZA and CBU by upgrading them to world class standard.

    • @ Nkope shinyenga, Stop telling lies, The Czech Republic has never been a part of the former Yugoslavia and is not in Eastern Europe. You can’t fool everyone all the time.

    • Stop telling lies, The Czech Republic has never been part of the former Yugoslavia. You can’t f.0.0.l. everyone all the time

    • Just like your friend Jay Jay, very Ignorant indeed, you must be living in Ghettos you guys

  3. “Meanwhile, Agriculture Minister, Given Lubinda, has disclosed in a separate interview that the Czech Republic has opened up scholarships to Zambians wishing to study in that country.”

    Black Africans are retreated like dogs in Eastern Europe and you are hell bent in sending our children there in the name of poverty. Why should someone be sent there to spend one year learning a language they will never need.

    • Jay Jay learning another language expands one’s brain and thinking horizons! You thinking so far is like a street kid on drugs in your so called “Western Europe”

    • Ba Jay Jay na imwe, Czech Republic has always been in Central Europe, since when did it relocate to Eastern Europe?

  4. I suppose they must be very handy for some advice on how not to handle a ‘tribal’ war!! Although there is reason for disquiet, considering Czech republic’s internal wars; it’s indisputable that a East Europeans gave the ability to pass on successful agricultural knowledge since their peasant citizens have been mostly good agriculturists. In fact they share some savagery tendencies as us! Let’s not be too pompous in sticking with the colonialist Central Europeans for status and appearances since they are repeat offenders in undermining Africans.

  5. Referring Czech Republic as Yugoslovia, is the same as saying Zambia is in South Sudan or Congo Brazaville, Gentlemen, Czech Republic is part of the EU and sits next to German in Central Europe. The country has never been at war and has the best beer in the World Pilsen Urquel. Do not spread lies if you have no knowledge, just shows your folishness

    • I think you have been drinking too much Czech beer to take some time of to study about its history…its best you continuing plastering yourself!!

    • Dear Country men you may not be PF symphathisers but it is good for you not to insult the president.

      Heed the divine counsel.

      Romans 13:1-3 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
      2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
      3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same

  6. The Czech Republic was part of the country known as Czechoslovakia. They split up peacefully into the Czech Republic and the current state of Slovakia. The Czech Republic, which now wants to change its name to Czechia, is a stable country at the moment – attracting a lot of Western tourists to its capital Prague. The problem most of us have is generalising – perhaps after one or two bad experiences. There are bad eggs in some parts, but I found a lot of the Czechs to be very friendly when I visited there.

    • You have explained very well Harold Muna, Prague is a very beautiful and friendly city with over 6 million tourists every year from all over the world. People like Jay Jay needs to start Night School to keep abreast with current affairs, I ‘not sure you will not find night school in Ghettos where most of these guys live
