Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia and Permanent Representative to the African Union Susan Sikaneta has paid tribute to China for partnering with Africa on establishing the Africa Continental Integrated High speed train initiative.

Ms Sikaneta says the initiative will provide Africa’s transport network with a modern high speed railway that would trigger massive development.

She says Zambia and Africa will continue collaborating with China on the planned creation of continental high speed train initiative.

The Zambian Ambassador was speaking at the Africa Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia during the launch of a book entitled -A Monument to China-Africa Friendship: A firsthand account of the building of TAZARA” authored by the Chinese government.

And during the same function, Ms Sikaneta disclosed that Zambia has donated a piece of land to China as a memorial to the Chinese men and women who lost their lives in the cause of building the Tazara.

Meanwhile Director General Policy and planning Department of the Chinese Foreign ministry Wang Yajun said China is committed in investing in African.

Mr Wang said China is also determined to revamp the TAZARA railways because it is symbolic to China -Africa Friendship.

This is contained in a statement issued to ZNBC news by First Secretary Press at the Zambian Mission in Addis Ababa, Naomi Chulu.

    • That train is just gonna raise problems for Zambia. Zambian will get killed daily on that rail, trying to cross with alcohol their tummies, as they are no different from wildlife in Kasanka National Park Trust, or Luangwa National Park. They are such a disgrace!!!

  1. You can’t give China land in Zambia, that’s having Israel in Palatine. The decision must be reconsidered.
