GUYS IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THE MEETING OR WHATEVER IS GOING ON IT’S BETTER YOU LEAVE THE PLACE. THEY TOTALLY DISREGARDED THE IMPORTANCE OF WHAT WAS GOING ON.

  1. Forget about signing Agreement. What about ratification of the MIT?
    Unfortunately, Zambian Ministers like appending theirs signature but MIT’s are very seldom ratified.

  2. Most of these signatures will be void as these ministers are illegal…please leave office and let PSs handle these things.

  3. The signing means more shopping malls in zambia for foreign goods to aid in the draining of forex from zambia.

    Someone forgot that zambia produces nothing, only maize.

  6. She is signing for South African Trucks carrying Gold and Diamond from Congo to pass for free in Zambia without paying a single Tax.She is signing for the Chinese to come and sell Tomatoes for free in Zambia.She is signing for an increanse of her commision she gets from comesa.And she is signing for her companies to invest in other countries for free.She is signing so that they can Export maize by themselves for free.This is what this stupid TFTA is all about.Zambia is producing nothing at the moment,as such,this is not a priority.And besides she is illegally signing that document-who is she?what position does she have in government because she was fired in May.

  7. Did they read that contract and understand it fully? This is how we end up in trouble by not understanding those fine little prints that hold us accountable and cannot say we did not understand because you have to know in order to sign something. I am sure there is a clause somewhere that we will soon come to regret.
